The new 5D series prices in a little less than I thought - sure sounds like it might shoot some very nice images.
Probably some of us now wondering if we didn't pull the trigger a bit premature with the 7D2? Hmmm... The 1.3 and 1.6 factor sounds interesting too, if it pulls in the images like one hopes it will.
Guess we'll know pretty quickly as the reviews come in -- will sure put a dent in any wallet where a shooter is used to two cameras in the field (ouch) like myself and lots of my colleagues.
Several new models of cameras and lenses -- jumping out like its been sitting and waiting for the holiday dust to settle. Can't wait to see what 50mp does to an image, and how large a print it might allow?
Not sure your reasoning / logic. These are very different cameras.
The 7D MK II is aimed to be the King of the Crop Sensor, a fantastic action, decent low-light, and generally just a solid camera. Sports/Action/Birds, this seems to be the way to go.
The 5D MK III is aimed at Studio/Wedding/Video/All around - It is a solid body, better low-light, gives up some in action. A decent solid FF. I think the 5D MK IV will be closer to 28 MP, Higher ISO, lower noise
the 5Ds / 5Dr - is aimed at Studio / Landscape - looks to me to be a poor-mans MF. High resolution, so-so ISO, o.k. FPS (lets face it 5 FPS at 50 MP is impressive compared to 6 FPS for the 5D MK III (1 fps less with double the resolution) What remains to be seen are color and DR. If these are greatly improved, then I can see this as a solid camera
the 1Dx - Still seems to be the king of the block. I am expecting a jump to 24MP for the 1Dx II, Higher ISO, and much better DR
All and all it makes sense. 1DX II at the top. You looking for more reach and a slight step down, the 7D MK II is the action camera. On the other side, if you don't need FPS, insane tracking or really high iso and mainly shooting controlled environments the 5Ds / 5Dr is a very targeted environment camera. In the middle between the 7D MK II and the 5Ds / 5Dr is the 5D MK IV. More of a jack of all trades it is a FF 7D MK II with a little less AF and FPS but improved HIGH ISO.
