EOS Bodies / Re: Bingo! New Canon 5Ds has 50.6 MP new rumored specs
« on: January 30, 2015, 05:54:38 PM »
I for one am kind of excited to see what the new cameras bring.  I'll hold my complaints until I see real world photos and confirmed specs.  50MP sure seems like Overkill for me, but so did 15MP when I bought my first digital SLR (T1i).

Lots of great cameras out there.   Should be interesting to see where Canon goes.  I've been debating about going FF for a while.  More choices is always good.

Thanks for the coverage.

I believe there is also a mirror lockup function that can help.

EOS-M / Canon EOS M2

Did the EOS M2 actually get released?  I just did a quick search and found almost nothing about it that wasn't written back in December when it was announced.  I like my M, don't love it, but I do like it.  Based on what specs were released it didn't seem like that much of an upgrade, but was interested in what people were saying about it..but there doesn't seem to be anything written about it.

I've been looking for a replacement for my T1i for some time.  I wanted to wait and see what the 70D offered.  Right now my budget (based on some assumptions) will allow for either the 6D, 5DMII or a 70D.

I'm going to wait and see what the more educated say about real world results on the 70D.  Particularly, I'm interested in low light (noise) handling.  Of course I'm interested in dipping my toes into the FF world, but that option will trigger the sale of my EF-S 17-55 and the acquisition of something like a 24-70 or the 24-105 (more realistic).   I can't imagine that both the 70D or the 6D aren't worlds better with AF than my current camera.

It's good to see the 70D look like a step forward instead of the sidestep that the T5i looks like.  It sure makes next year's rebel and the 7D upgrade seem a whole lot more interesting.

I have the F4 non IS version and I've gotten quit a few good shots with it with my T1i, but I'd love to have the IS.  It was about twice the cost though. At that point in my hobby I was unwilling to pay a grand. 

It was quite a step up from my kit as far as contrast and color.

Can't wait to pair it with a new body with better ISO performance.


My first camera was a film Rebel 2000 back in 1999 or so.  After spending a couple of years with it, I bought a Sony digital camera.  After spending several disappointing years with it I went back to canon and purchased a Rebel T1i. Several lens purchases later, I'm still using it, but am now shopping for a replacement.  I'm not so deep in that I couldn't switch to Nikon, but I've had a good experience with this camera so sometime this year, I'll upgrade to a nicer body.  I'd like to go FF, but I'm not sure I can afford the glass needed to make it shine.

I've been sitting on my venerable T1i, and am ready for a new body.  I'm kind of torn.   While I'd like to step up to something like a 6d, I don't look forward to replacing my 17-55 EF-S lens. 
I'm also wondering how much I'd miss the on camera flash. I only use the one I have once and a whole for fill.

The 70d could be a very nice upgrade to my old noisy T1i, but I wonder how much of an improvement it will be.
