I would get the metabones ultra speed booster. Its expensive but it is made for using ff lenses. It will give you ff field fov and you gain a stop of light.

They make  regular ef to e adaptors also

well it seems the camera might be alright after all. i will have to see if i can find one in store to see how it feels. i want a nice small camera but the rx100 just doesn't feel right to me.

6D. No question.
Looking at the 6D vs 7DII still life at ISO 100 there is no comparison. 6D is better.
In fact, comparing the 7DII vs the T5i still life at ISO 100, the T5i is very marginally better, for $1200 less mula.

You are right about the ir comparisons. The t5i still life 100 looks noticeably better than the 7dii or 70d, it also looks marginally better than the 6d. That seems peculiar, they are all in camera jpegs so I suspect there is some additional sharpening and contrast added in the t5i image?

i have gotten used to having the wifi on my 6d and 70d. i really wish the 7dii had it built in but i have an idea that should work. it has 2 card slots cf and sd, you can specify what files to write to each so if you use an eye fi card and shoot raw to the cf card and small jpeg to the eye fi in the sd card slot then it should do the same thing.

I was looking forward to possibly buying one of these but not now. Everything I have seen on it so far is a big letdown.

I just got the G7x today and took some shots on a walk and indoors. The camera is nice but after looking at the jpeg and raw files. The picture appears to have a decent IQ but looking at it closer there is a tough distinction to determine if it was even in focus since it does not have any sharp areas in the image. there are details but slight at best. Was hoping since it was a good option for a portable camera. I liked the touch interface but the pictures are just soft even at low iso's. I can try taking a pic of a book on a shelf but that's not how I am going to use it. I am going to have to rethink this. Maybe the G1x II or look at the Sony Nex series again even though I prefer to stay all Canon. $700 is too much for just ok.


That is unfortunate to hear.I looked at some crop comparisons, I think it was ir. the g7x crops looked blurry like they were a bit out of focus with a lot of fringing. I thought it was just a bad setup but maybe the lens is just not the best. Too bad. The g1xii looked good.

If you get the 6d you don't have to get a 24-70. Maybe the 16-35 f/4 plus your 50 and your 70-200 makes a great kit?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7Dii AF performance
« on: October 16, 2014, 09:44:57 PM »
I am thinking it will work a lot better on the 7dii. I have the s version and use it on a 70d. It works great until the light gets low then gets inconsistent. The spec on the 7dii says its supposed to be good down to -3ev which is the same as the 6d. My lens focuses much more accurately on the 6d than the 70d. I am thinking it will be just as accurate on the 7dii as the 6d. I will find out when i get mine ( i pre-ordered) and post, that should give you an indication

I really cant believe people bitch about this, those samples look great and who in the right mind actually pushes the stuff that much.

well the jpeg on the left looks good, the raw file on the right looks like what i would do if i was trying to show how bad the shadow noise can be.

for now i will chalk it up to poor raw processing but it doesn't look good.

I thought the jpeg looked really good and was expecting the raw to be better but its horrible.maybe the 70d or d7100 are not any better but I was hoping to see some noticeble improvement in IQ (especially shadow noise). I reckon it will do well for what I will use it for which is wildlife in good light but I will have to refrain from shooting dimly lit bars unless I want everything to look like its covered in purple shag carpet.

Maybe the fellows over at DPR don't look at the files they are converting. Maybe acr is just that bad. Maybe they just want to see if anybody is awake? Those are the worst raw conversions I have seen in a long time

i read the article, he shoots a lot of video and the a7s is really good for that. evf is really important, especially in sunlight. the a7s resolution is made for video without pixel binning or line skipping. he also likes the light weight and small size, he uses sony/zeiss  and some nikkor lenses he likes on the camera. all sounds reasonable to me?

i have been thinking about getting a regular a7, the a7r seems excessive and there is some shutter vibration problem with it. the sony's are great because you can use just about every lens ever made. i like the idea of using my fd lenses again. i also really have this itch to get a nikkor 135dc but just don't want to have to buy a nikon body just for the lens.

i think the 7dii is going to be a wonderful camera but the iq is the same as the 70d from what i have seen. the in camera conversion appears to be a bit better on the 7dii. dpr has posted raw conversions along with jpegs. they were using an early build of acr.  PSA: DON'T USE ACR! the jpegs looked a lot better than the raws
