Lenses / Re: EF11-24mm F4L listed on a Japanese site
« on: September 16, 2014, 10:46:23 AM »
Fake.  F/4 makes no sense.

Makes perfectly sense... People photogs (the only ones that need 2.8) would never use 11mm, because it distorts the image too much. For them, a new 16-35/2.8 is much better, which this lens would leave space for. Then Canon would have three wide angles to choose from, but to have all FL's and apertures covered, you gotta at least buy two of them... ;)
Besides, I don't think you could do 11mm/2.8 that easy. But looks like a nice supplement for the already great lens lineup! :D

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 7DII - Did you preorder?
« on: September 15, 2014, 11:10:47 AM »
Looks at the replies above and I feel soft-ish...  :o

Don't! I feel exactly the same about preorders... I'll wait until the (very good) price has fallen and until the first serious test are out! :)

And motherf*ckers, $1800 in US and 2000EURO ($2587) in Europe.

In Germany, it is 1699€!!! :D that is incredibly low! Normally it is $=€ with cameras over here! :)

Yes, the spread of AF points is great.

Saw it over at Scott Kelby, could not believe it! :)

Neuro was right in his ideas about the "jogging" lever around the base of the joystick.


I missed what Neuro said, and haven't seen anything else in this release material. Anyone care to link / explain it? Thanks in advance!

That switch at the joystick is made to toggle through different AF area modes. I asked about this in two other threads and he was presuming this. :D

What about the 70-300L? I've been shooting birds with that for 2 years! :D

You have to watch that "Cello" short film they shot with the 7D and several L lenses... if THAT is what ISO 3200 on this camera is going to look like... holy S___!!

That ISO 3200 looks amazing! :D

Well, Scott Kleby is paid by Canon, everyone knows that, but that doesn't make the two new cameras less impressive... I fell in love with both of them *sigh* :D

I just read the best thing about this camera over at DPreview!!! It's got spot metering linked to the AF point!!! I've been hoping for that and thought they would never build this into a non-1-series camera!!! I love it!! :D

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Macro Photography - APS-C Vs Full Frame
« on: September 15, 2014, 08:28:21 AM »
Specifically for macro photography, APS-C has the advantage. The shallow depth of field in macro, becomes even more critical with full frame. In practice, a photo you are used to doing with F11 aperture with APS-C, will need F19 apertura to get the same depth of field with full frame. Our friend Marsus42 described this finding in a post months ago.

For use in macro, 70D and its articulated LCD seem better than 7D Mark ii.
I agree that APS-C has the advantage with macro, but the 7DII will be better than the 70D e.g. for bird photography, so that is great for the OP. Go for the 7DII, Sabaki! :)
I will probably do so myself, my 7D AF does not work with some of my lenses, it is out of warranty time and I have a bad fear that this will cost... >:( Maybe I will just get a new camera... ::)

tayassu, I'm crazy excited about getting a new camera that I'm kind of embarassed by my own enthusiasm for it.

Would be so cool being one of the first with the 7Dii too huh :D

So if I go that way, then you must too  ;D

I don't think you can be too enthusiastic about something you know is gonna get you great stuff...
Would be cool indeed, but I'll have to save a little to be able to afford it, I'm most likely pulling the trigger around Christmas... I've never been so tempted to buy a camera just by the spec sheet and the price  ::) ::)

That camera is exactly what the the 7D was 5 years ago. A solid action camera, standing above all other APS-C DSLR cameras! :D I believe this will truly be a worthy successor to the legendary 7D. And for 1800$ that is absolutely great!!! This will find its way into the bags of many serious amateurs and pros as well! I'm really tempted to buy one for myself, especially because of the AF... :)

PowerShot / Re: Official: Canon PowerShot G7 X
« on: September 15, 2014, 08:18:20 AM »
Well, it is as expected, but a great little camera specwise... Let's see about IQ and AF, but I'm hoping for the best. Also, a very good price, 700$, Sony's RX100III is @ 800$ at B&H. :D Very happy about this development in Canon's pocketable camera strategy, I now have to decide whether I need an EVF or 30mm more and a touchscreen... :D

PowerShot / Re: The New Canon PowerShot G7 X
« on: September 15, 2014, 06:35:36 AM »
The lens is a 8,8-36,7/1,8-2,8. It gives us the the same field of view like a 24-100mm lens and the same DoF like a 4,9-7,6 lens with the FL of 24-100mm. However, the brightness in the picture is the same like a 1,8-2,8 lens on FF, because you have to factor in that the ISO must be multiplied by the crop factor Square, which makes ISO 100 on the G7X look like an ISO 744 on a FF sensor that is made with the exact same technology, assuming something like that is possible. :)
