    As a current 5DSR owner, I would need to see a big improvement in low-iso DR or high-iso noise (preferably both) to consider investing in the Mark 2. The relatively small resolution improvement wouldn't be enough to make me buy.

    Yes...i'm curious too. What's a bit saddening with the 5DS/R is the fact that my 6D MKI has almost identical DR even at ISO 100, and starts to outperform it at ISO 400. This is according to DXOmark.

    I'd like to see the 5DSR MKII hit the mid to high 14 stops of DR and ISO 100 and compete with the Sony sensors.

    I defintely see your point, but at least in landscape, there's too much DR to aesthetically capture in one exposure anyway. You're either blending, or using grads. Of course also in that context, high ISO is nearly irrelevant. I believe the 5DSr is meant to be a landscape camera, and thusly tripod mounted and needing the resolution and a soft shutter. It’s not a camera for action or high ISO night photography for sure. I’ve read a lot of criticism on various nits about the 5DSR, and overwhelmingly its in areas that I believe the camera was never meant to shine in, those area belong to the 5D mk IV etc. Thats my $0.03 anyways

    Your 6D is a perfect companion to the 5DSR, use one for mural-sized blue-hour to blue-hour shots, and one for the darkness. My trusty 6D is now filling the second chair in that fashion. Its the perfect pair IMO

    I was using a 6D as my high-iso night camera. I replaced it last year with the R. Turns out I really enjoy the R and it has become my travel companion as well. The 5DSR remains my serious landscape camera, but that will likely change if the rumored 75MP RS becomes a reality next spring.

    Me too Kyle, a high MP mirrorless would be the perfect camera for me. Maybe with a single zoom lens.

    Reminds me of the endless megapixel wars from the point and shoot days. The quality and sensitivity of the sensors matters a lot more than how many pixels you can cram into the array. What good is 108mp with a 3/16" diameter lens? There is a reason why Nikon and Canon's highest end cameras don't have more pixels than their prosumer models.

    Printing is my primary end game, and the native resolution of the 5DSR supports 24x36. I would like to print larger. 80MP would be ideal.

    Ben I have seen pretty nice 4’x6’ prints from the 5DsR.

    the cameras are going in a different direction with a lot of computational power applied. A large mpix sensor downsampled for even 4K screens look pretty good. Techniques like taking multiple exposures in low light and averaging out noise is one such method widely used now.
