5d, 6D are both sturdy cameras. No need to panic. I mean you are on a cruise, not on a foot expedition.
Carrying too much gear will take away from the experience and renting a 1Dx will just add expense.

But Neuro currently is much more than DR. Mirror less, MP, 7d2 sensor improvement and such are in the scanner.

I do not see why the 6D would fail. It is not like you intend to splash water on it.
I think it would be a certain mistake to take a crop camera. You may (will) witness beautiful scenery in low light and tripod will be almost useless in the cruise. Please take the 6D and a good quality pocket camera. IMHO.
Show us your photos.
I think the 16-35 f4 IS would be a super lens when the light is both low and good. And yes 100-400 is a much better choice than the 70-200.
If I were you: 6D (or 5d3) with the above two lenses would complete my kit. Cant see the need for any more lenses or gear. You are in a ship, I would not worry too much about battery or changing lenses - there will be plenty power sources and cover to change lenses.

I browse this website quite often since 2012. I have never seen so many negative comments about Canon these days in comparison with before.
Does Canon really not satisfying its customers lately or is it that there are new members in the forum who like to put down Canon in comparison with other companies?

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Would you get Zeiss 135 f2?

I have it. Use it mostly for video. If I did only stills, I would use the Canon 135. Lack of AF makes the Zeiss EXTREMELY limiting.

No such thing.

To me it is very clear that:
1D is 2015,
5D is 2016,
6D is 2017.

When did you dream this? The 5Diii will for sure be replaced before the summer of 2015. The 5Diii's rival was the Nikon D800, and they have already released their next release = the D810. Canon wont stay behind. Expect the announcement by end of February 2015, to be available end of March, early April 2015.

When did you dream this?

Only perhaps if you view them tiny size.

I'm not familiar to the Canon ecosystem and I'm not sure what choice is wiser. So if you guys could give me some advice, it'l be highly appreciated.
If there is a new FF Canon on the horizon, how long do you think until release, based on experience with previous Canon releases in the past?
What would you do if you were like me - wait or risk and buy, and then sell it cheaper if new FF body is released eventually (can't afford to have two bodies)?
There are good 6D deals now(5Dmk3 is ridiculously overpriced, even the second hand deals).


Overpriced by what standards pls?

Lenses / Re: EF 35mm f/1.4L II to Finally Come as Well? [CR2]
« on: November 14, 2014, 10:23:35 PM »
Am confused. I wonder if it will be of more use than my 35 f2 IS. 1.4 and better IQ will be tempting but perhaps the IS will tilt my decision in favor or the 35f2.
I feel the IQ of the new lens will be almost the same as my other 35: Zeiss 1.4 but the manual focus of the Zeiss will be more useful when shooting video.

Great... Next thing you know, everybody's getting the BAS (Box Acquisition Syndrome)  ::)


Never. My camera is at 1 min auto off.
