Yeah this does look noisy. But it also seems to look quite different than the A7S breed. Comparison of the two side by side will be nice but thinking back to tests from A7S etc. I do think these two might be in different categories. I'm thinking especially the way that airplane looked. I can't describe the difference fully but its as if this camera captures the dark parts in a special way. Also, the seafloor moonlight shot? That is the bleeding edge of a new category of video, think about how many reality show moments have to cross the line from traditional video format into green creep.
Also, to everyone crapping on Canon... shove off. Go invent your own camera. Company has been an innovator in their own way for so long. Weah weah, where's the 4K? haterrz.
I feel that most comments here are selling resolution increases short. Sure right now the 2K realm is totally fine but what about in 3 years, in 5 years, in 7 years. It is NOT just TV manufacturers pushing this. Look at the new 5K Retina Display iMac. A friend took a photo of a 1920 x 1080 photoshop canvas and how much of it fills the screen on that new machine.... It then hit me, it looks like what an SD clip from my first mini DV camera in 2004 looks like on my current monitor. F'en small. More people are watching things on computers, fiber internet is coming to more towns and Apple is making 5K displays on their consumer dekstop, don't act like resolution is not a big deal. It is.
Obviously bad data rates, color & compression will cripple an image and everyone loves great dynamic range. But saying "id rather have dynamic range than 4K" doesn't really solve the question.
I would have a hard problem spending 7,000 on a camera that doesn't at least have an option for 4k expandability right now.
