This is one of the best pictures I have ever seen. It's beautiful.

How would I compliment a 50mm prime? Well, I might try something like this:
"You're a very nice 50mm prime, aren't you - I love your wide aperture, and your field of view is just peachy!"
Sorry.... couldn't resist...
Funny, I am seeing quite a lot fulltime wedding, portrait and landscape photographers in my vincity, who use 5D mk2 bodies with 17-40, 24-70 mk1 and 70-200 mk1 lenses, while making a living and creating spectacular images. I guess somebody should tell them the wrong of their ways
Question to be asked is why haven't they "upgraded" yet?
Probably because it doesn't matter, as their current gear is good enough and will remain good enough for quite a few more years. So if someone "switches" to Sony now and Sony discontinues the line three years into the future, but the gear remains sufficient then there's no real issue/problem with its continued use and so again there is no "huge price hit".
With the lenses she already has, I think a newer camera is a better gift. IMHO.I totally agree with that. A 70D would be very nice, or the 700D.
That was funnyI am giving it until the end of the first quarter next year to see if there is another sensor to compete with the Nikon d810 and if not, I am selling all my Canon gear. I love landscape and I am disappointed in the lack of dynamic range. I test drove the Nikon d750 last weekend and even at 24 mp, I was amazed with the dynamic range and focus ability compared to the 5d mk3. I want that body for portrait and sport and the 810 for landscape if Canon doesn't step up and grow a set.
Hello and goodbye.
To me it looks that the stride length indicates canter which supports your original statement. Also, I don't believe she would ride in full galop on the side of that slope.+1 on the post above me. Horses can easily run faster than the 18mph that Sporgon said. Please exercise at least common sense. A horse cannot run faster than a human? Football running backs run at 20mph, and none of them will outrun a horse. And yes, various online resources rate the horse at around 45mph tops. Which makes the AF all the more impressive.
If only we had some photographic evidence. Oh wait ! We have
OK, in fairness Brian's example was to show the effectiveness of ten frames per second in capturing the moment of suspension in the horses's gait rather than AF accuracy with a target moving towards the camera, and ten frames per second has clearly capture the horse..... in canter gait, not gallop.
I'll give in, maybe she had it up to 22 mph.
Incidentally I think the 7DII is shaping up to be a really excellent value top end action camera.
Jobs was also against a small iPad and a large iPhone.I hope it has the size and controls of the Fuji X-T1, has the 7D2 sensor, a swivel screen, and lots of videocentric features.
I don't think it will be that drasticallly different from what is out now, they would be in fear of cannibalizing their DSLR sales.
Steve Jobs said: "If you don't cannibalize yourself, someone else will." For me, that someone else was Olympus. I've already bought my last Canon DSLR, and if Canon doesn't come out with a Pro Mirrrrorless I've already bought my last Canon camera.
Canon should bring 2 Models:That makes sense. I'd get the regular one as a second body. I have been on and off about getting the current M anyway, but a better sensor wouldn't hurt anything except the wallet.
• EOS 3 - as small as possible, = like EOS M2, with 70D sensor, fast enough DPAF, some minor improvements, price exactly like SL/100D
• EOS M Pro = "Fuji XT1 killer", 7D 2 sensor, AF speed best in class, EVF, built in flash, built in wifi, GPS and RT commander, fully articulated "retina" LCD, beefier grip to fit LO-E6N battery for 500 shots per charge.
And never mind should those 2 models confuse some consumers. They can still go and buy a rebel or other mirrorslappers.
I am sure Canon will keep the EF-M mount. It' specs are well chosen and the existing lens line-up are all price-weight-size-performance leaders. Add a few more good, small and cheap pancake primes (e.g. 12mm/4.0, 50/1.8, 80mm/2. and a 60/2.8 macro and everythinv will be just wonderful.
was just going to post this too.
when sony again bumps the image quality like last time canon will have a hard time convincing me to buy another canon body.
i mean canonites are happy with small steps as it seems (banding gone... wow).
but when the 5D MK IV is not substancial better and equal to sony sensors i truly will lose all hope for canon.
Are you sure you own a Canon camera? You seem so unhappy with all that they offer; I bet you would be happier with something else. *hands over paper and some crayons*
well i bet i own more canon gear than you. but why are you interested wanna buy something?
or did i hurt your fanboy soul kiddo, that you have to attack me personally with such a kindergartenscheiße?
Concerning personal attack, I can see only your "kindergartenscheiße" as a word that does not belong on this forum. But that's probably also the reason you did write it in German language so that most of the people don't understand it.
That's not the way we should behave, if you can't find back in the productline of Canon, then make your choice, but don't blame/insult other forum users for that.
Wow! Obviously there are many of you out there with a ton of knowledge about operating systems. I fell way behind the curve over the years.
In reading everything that has been posted on this thread, I have come to the conclusion that the first thing I need to do is address my computer needs soon. Probably should be doing something about it now.
I am not about to take on a computer build myself due to lack of knowledge and will buy a pre-built, likely from Dell or HP. It appears I can purchase a pretty high capacity machine for the price of a small lens. The best processor with lots of memory. I'll just go for their maximum available build. i7 processor, 16mb memory, etc.. The remaining question for me is which operating system. Dell still offers Win7 along with Win8.
I have heard many advise against Win8. What is the problem people have with it? Which should I be going with?
You guys are the experts. I can use your help with this.
I have been a Canon user my entire life. I love the product, including DPP which is my RAW converter of choice.
I presently shoot with a 1D Mark IV and a 5D Mark III, which are fully supported by my present version of DPP. The 7D Mark II requires that I update my DPP.
Here is my problem with that.....
The newer version of DPP does not support my operating system. I run Vista 64. Updating my operating system requires that I go to Windows 8 which needs a clean install. Huge job. Also, I'm not sure that a lot of my current software will run on Windows 8. I have CS4 as well as plugins such as NIK, Neat Image and a slew of other free standing applications.
As much as I was not comfortable with the user interface of Lightroom when I tried a demo last year, I thought I would now have to go that route. Guess what? Right. It's now only available under CC and I refuse to rent software on a monthly fee basis which is why I still run CS4.
I'm 72 years old so I guess my 1D4 and 5D3 will have to do me the rest of my life or until my computer cr@ps out and I have no choice.
All Canon had to do was continue to support the operating system and I would have added a 7D2 to my bag.
Okay..... rant over.
Quit your ranting and do your homework. LR is available as a perpetual license from any number of sources, even in Canada. Adobe themselves even still sell it!
Thanks. I did my homework but obviously not as well as you. I searched the Adobe site but never found this link. All I came up with when I searched was the rental option. Appreciate your efforts.
I just finished renting this lens and the usb dock for the past 2 weeks. Everything that is said about this lens is true. It is wonderfully sharp, and without the usb dock it has severe focusing issues. AFMA does not help except for the exact distance you set the AFMA for. Using the usb dock and software you set the focus for 4 different distances. each of the distances had different calibrations. After some meticulous calibrations (roughly 60 minutes tethered and zooming in at 100%), this lens worked great! Testing for constancy I was able to find the following miss rates:Hi, very interesting input. I am getting this lens in a couple of months (when I get paid for an article with pictures I just sold). I'd definitely like to know more on how you went about this.
Canon 50 f1.8 @1.8 = 3/60 miss rate
Canon 24-70 @ f2.8/50mm = 1/60 miss rate
Sigma 50 art @ 1.4 = 3/60 miss rate (closer to 2.5 as one was usable, but not tack sharp so I included it)
In summary, unless someone spends the same required attention to detail I refuse to consider their input on the quality and consistency of this lens' focusing ability. This is an awesome lens, but only with the addition of usb dock.
If requested I can upload some of my testing shots and discus my methodology.
