The way it sounds, I'm guessing they will have a slot in the hood to be able to use your fingers to rotate a ND or Polarizer. That would be nice. I thought about using a dremel and make slots in in my 70-200 hood to allow me to rotate a ND filter, but I thought it might ruin the use of the hood and maybe let light in the slots and cause a reflection.

I still think you need to compare crop sensor to crop sensor. Not crop sensor to full frame. Proves nothing, except that full frame sensors have better DR.

Unless I'm missing your point in all this? Fill me in?

Why are you comparing a Canon 7Dii Crop Sensor to a Nikon D750(sony) Full Frame Sensor?

Atleast they brought the start button back. I've been playing with it for awhile now and it's not as bad as I thought it was gonna be. Have not tried installing any photo software on it yet, as it's on a couple work computers, but I plan to try it this weekend to see if it runs and how well it runs.

Wonder if they will use the Foven (multi-layer) sensor in the new cameras like the 5Div and keep the current sensor for the 6DII? That might be the way they separate the features?

Just jibbering....

I would get the Windows 7 64-bit update for Vista. Windows 7 and Vista use the same kernal, they just made a few changes to the OS to make it run better and removed some of the junk that people didn't need or want. Most of the Vista drivers are the same as the windows 7 drivers. So, should be a very easy upgrade.

You mentioned the UI and button layout. Also you mentioned how turned off you are about the EVF. How is the build quality? As compared to the 5DIII? Is it about the same, better, worse? I have a 6D on my list for landscape shooting, but with an EF adaptor, it's something to think about.

I think it's pronounced So-knee-kon.  :P

That's just a guess.

I'm from Peoria,IL USA.

EOS Bodies / Re: Update on the EOS 7D Mark II Spec List
« on: August 23, 2014, 10:28:17 AM »
first of all, I take my Pictures with 5D MKII and MK III and owner of 7 L-lenses. During the last 2 years I did an update of my Equipment for more than 15.000 € now. Two years ago I considered to change to Nikon due to the innovations they presented with e.g. D800 or D800E especially the high resolution of the sensors. This based on the fact that I sell my pictures as prints and build up a Business with stock photos. Aside the Picture itself the technical data and expected resolutions continuously rising. At that time I thought Canon will follow Nikon and Sony and also be more innovativ.

Today I´m angry about my decision. The reasons are:
- No high resolution sensors with a quality like Nikon
- Arrogance of Canon in their behaviour with their Clients
- Price policy for new II-lenses

The high resolution and the quality of Nikon and Sony shows that this is not a game and that
high resolutions doesn´t mean low quality at low light Images.

Fact is that I will check again how much I will get for my current Canon Equipment and than I will decide if
to switchover to Nikon

And at the same time, a Nikon\Sony user is selling their stuff so they can come to Canon.

I wonder if they are looking at MF as a way to get more pixels, as they don't seem to be able to get much more on the current sensor fab. Bigger sensor, more pixels, but again, their goes all the R&D from APS-c and 35mm DSLR's. If Canon did decide to develop a MF, would they need to develop a sensor? The current MF systems all use a universal sensor pack from 1 of the two companies that offer them? Except leica of course. OK, enough rambling..

There are more bodies on this list than I thought, but no 60D:

Dumb question. If I buy the 2x convertor for my 300L f4 IS, it will become f8. Will a 60D center focus work or only the 5d3 and 1dx?

Thjanks in advance!
