EOS Bodies - For Stills / Price tag to sell a Canon 7D
« on: May 27, 2014, 11:33:17 AM »
Hi Canonites,
I would like to sell my 2+ years old Canon 7D in a local online marketplace, the cam has all the accessories, box and normal signs of use like a couple of minor scratches. It has done 44k clicks.

Here in NL the new bodies sell for 1000/1100 euros, so I was thinking to price it around 650.

How much would you ask for the camera?

Thanks!
B

excuse me for the perhaps stupid question, but why Sony produced these cameras with the E mount, don't they have already full frame lenses on the A mount? wouldn't it make more sense to give it a native A with already available lenses instead a mount for which they still have to come out with some? I mean the current E mount line is only crop isnt it?

sounds a bit unnecessary the canon is not even that expensive..

i think sigma should aim for an ultra wide zoom or prime, i think they will see big bucks if the come out with a good 14mm 2.8

looks a bit plasticky for a 1600$ crop body.. also it costs the same as the 6D. now i officially have no idea about canon's policy anymore.

I voted for what I would like (1300) but it will be so much higher I'm afraid. I think at least 300 bucks more that the 7100

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon wins big at TIPA

TIPA is a mystery
I have a good friend who has been a member of  the TIPA jury for many years, their have their meetings and vote for equipments they have not tried or seen .

So it would seem, the Canon 1dX C is not even out yet.. :/

Quote from: Sony Rumors
The RX200 will have an improved 28-140mm f/1.4-2.2 lens (compared to the current 29-105mm f/1.8-4.9)

If true, 140mm f/2.2 means a substantially bigger lens assembly, meaning the RX-200 would lose the current form factor - one big reason for its popularity.  I'm very tempted by the RX-100, but if the successor won't fit in a jeans pocket like the current model, no interest from me.

Is 140mm f/2.2 even possible on such a small scale? Are there any predecessors? It sounds like one of those 18-300 f1.4 lenses that people like to dream of on this forum.. but Im ready to eat the printout of this post with salad if it will actually happen! ;)

Photography is like a conversation with someone who lets me ask lots of questions. But I usually only get a good answer when I ask a good question.

Sometimes I'm so amazed by the beauty of reality that I need to save it somehow. Sometimes I would like to start from reality and make something entirely new. Oh, and I'd love to be paid for that, but I'm not there yet.. so much more shooting and experimenting to do..

According to the rumors 7dII will be placed even higher in the camera line, so it will be targeted at pros like birds/sports shooters and have all those things they make them drool like better AF and faster FPS. It would probably cost a freakzillion spacedollars.. my guess is around 2200.
Following this assumption the 70D will step up as the enthusiast crop. This means that I'd expect AFMA, better AF (at least comparable to the current 7D) and so on.

If either or none of these two cameras get a better sensor Canon will fuck things up and I would really employ everyone to refrain from purchasing these products just to give them a signal; not that it matters but, damn it, one can dream.

I really don't wanna switch even though Nikon is ever tempting, but I loathe the shape and handling of their cameras. If the 70D has the stuff I like (AFMA, swivelly screen, better ISO performance and DR than 7D) I will sell my 7D and get it.

I think most of the DSLR innovation is now done.

roblem is, Canon is driven by product differentiation, max. profit (lowest cost & highest prices) and they are so conservative they probably don't think about real innovations, even not with a cpu as fast as their digic5 (or 6).

i might be wrong, but every company is driven by those assumptions. Nikon has not the upper hand in terms of sales for the entry level nor probably the uber-pro (D4 vs 1DX), so in order to steal Canon's share they offer a more extensive set of features with their cameras. As long as Canon has the upper hand they will never make a revolutionary product, only incremental changes. Sorry for being captain obvious.

Also I'm surprised how long this conversation has been going, there is a new entry-level model every year that will entice only the beginners that dont have a camera yet. There haven't been any changes with the 650D but companies that have the sales upper hand do that (iphone 4 and 4s anyone? im sure there are people here who had both). Nobody here is gonna buy the 700D unless as backup body, if you want 7D features in a backup body you know what to buy.

Reviews / Re: Canon 6D review and Canon 6D vs 5D mark III
« on: March 24, 2013, 04:28:16 PM »
I really wanted to like the 6D but I got to hold it and coming from a 7D it really doesn't feel right. Also I don't like the controls. But I've never shot with it so I can't really judge it.

It's just that it feels just a bummer, even if it takes great photos in low light it's still only 1 feature more that the 5dII. I understand people who say that a camera should just take good pictures, but it's not so anymore and features are important nowadays.

I understand that in terms of business Canon hit the jackpot since they made people buy it by offering the lowest features set they could think of (ok ok GPS/WI-FI..), but in my opinion they've done a great disservice to many.

People have said that it's an entry level FF that appeals to Rebel users upgrading to FF, but that doesn't necessarily imply that they are the only ones who could buy it. Also for sure Rebel users would not have minded a more pro feature set, and for sure that would have won the sympathies of a wider audience.

I'm so angry also to the idea of "not wanting to hurt the 5dIII sales" because they just had to downscale that machine a little bit to make them not compete. Put 9 autofocus points instead of a gazzillion like in the 5dIII, limit the FPS to 3 or 4 and that's it!! the cameras won't compete and people who shoot fast will buy 5dIII and the others 6D.

Sigh. Money please continue to drop on me, 5dIII is still far away..
