Yes, The ISO setting is propably the same. I made my comparison based on this assumption

What information and where did you get that information that lead you to "probably"  believe the image from the 760D was shot at ISO 6400? Making this assumption without any solid indication is silly. I would never take that shot at 6400 unless I was doing a comparison test. If the person taking that shot was doing test then where is the rest of their test shots. Also how much post processing and noise reduction was done on that image? I stand by my statement that if ALL test images were not taken at the same time and setting then the comparison is junk! Especially if post processing is not all the same and since you did not take or process the image from the new camera then it is a sure thing they are not processed the same.

None of this proves anything. Do you know the camera setting of the image you believe to be from the new camera specifically ISO setting? Are the crops you post exactly the same pixel count? Were the images all taken in the same light level? To make accurate image comparison everything needs to be exactly the same for each camera or the results will be junk and useless.

Never said they can't buy them. I said I can't see them making changes from their current format to accommodate the sensor. Since the specs say it is Canon why in the world would you believe it is Sony?

The specs say Canon sensor. Not sure they can say that if it was Sony sensor. Also the Sony is 1.5 crop and Canon is 1.6. The difference in crop would change pixel count. Can't see them changing crop factor to 1.5. I believe if they were going to spend the money to buy a sensor it wouldn't go in the rebel line. I could be wrong but I don't see Canon buying Sony sensors anytime soon.

First I don't think they can crush the competition with lenses. They better have a body that can produce competitive images. What I believe will happen with the release of the new 5ds line is as the price between that camera and the 7d close in the 7d will loose market share. With the in camera crop factor of the new 5ds we may never see a 7d3. The 80d line will move up and fill that space.  The current 70d has already matched or passed the 7d1. Eventually I believe they will also drop the 5d4 once it gets old if the 5ds line makes big sales. A lot of this depends on what the competition does in upcoming years. Who know what will happen. This is all a guessing game.

EOS Bodies / Re: 7d mark ii strange sound.HELP!

I just held mine up to my ear and can hear a little noise which I was guess is the rails. It is so faint I would have never noticed it if I wasn't trying to hear it. Wouldn't worry about it unless it was loud and easy to hear.

It's just the spring of the pop-up flash moving freely when you shake the camera or change holding position for portrait/landscape-type shooting. If you press the flash open, the sound stops as the spring becomes loaded. Nothing to worry about as it also happened with my 7D MkI and my 600D.
This makes no sense at all. If the spring isn't loaded with flash down then it wouldn't pop up. There may be something else that doesn't have pressure when flash is down but it won't be the spring. I've never had or even seen a camera make a noise when tilted. I would send it in for repair.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 7DII CF write speeds
« on: December 24, 2014, 10:46:56 AM »
Keep in mind the advertised speed is the max speed. It doesn't mean it will always write that fast. I know a 94mbs card will do better in a 7D than a
67mbs/700x card. Both are above the speed of the camera but lets say part of the time they both are writing at 1/3 speed. That puts them both
under the cameras speed but the faster card is still faster. I will always buy the fastest card I can afford at the time.

EOS Bodies / Re: Ron Martinsen Blasts the 7DII in his review
« on: December 19, 2014, 10:32:44 PM »
I happen to be friends with Ron and have worked with him for some time.  While I do not always agree with his reviews, he's pretty straight up.  One thing is he has always stated what he thought about products - even when it wound up pissing off his sponsors.  Keep in mind that the majority of big review sites out there have to temper their disappointments in order to not suffer financially.

In terms of his review on the 7D2, I happen to agree with it. \

so you recommend that someone who is not using the 7D MK II for wildlife or sports buy a D4s?  A D4s won't do sports or wildlife?  What is he on??
I was kinda wondering the same thing. What does he have against the 1Dx if he recommending a high priced ff? Where does the D4s beat the 1Dx for sports or wildlife? If they're good friends then they may be sharing the same smoke pipe.

EOS Bodies / Re: Noise - maybe it's good?
« on: December 16, 2014, 11:51:33 AM »
I think fellow photographers always notice more noise than the average person. The one taking and editing the image will see a lot more than even your fellow photographers. Maybe we do put too much emphasis on noise. I always start getting really unhappy when I try to do heavy cropping on wildlife shots because that is where it is amplified the most. Yet I can show that image to a non photographer and they will love it. In the end we are the ones camera makers have to satisfy because we buy the cameras. 

EOS Bodies / Re: Sony Sensors Coming to Canon DSLRs? [CR1]

I have received this information a few times over the years, but nothing has never come to fruition, so I’ve never lent much credence to it... It’s definitely possible, but I wouldn’t write it in stone yet
Why bother then writing now?

I leave it to you to judge on your own.
I think you missed the point of this forum. It is called rumors for a reason. Wouldn't be much talk here if it only reported things written in stone. I think its interesting to hear peoples ideas and just maybe from time to time some Canon people will visit to see what we want them to improve.

I have not used the Sigma 150-600 so can't comment specifically about it. With that said if the loss of light and speed is a problem for you with the 1.4 converter on the Canon lens then you probably won't be happy with the Sigma. Every Sigma and Tampon lens I have used or seen other people use has been slower than an equivalent Canon lens with converter and they usually hit the small aperture early in the zoom range.

EOS Bodies / Re: Can the new 7d mark ii challenge the 1d mark iv?
« on: November 13, 2014, 12:20:20 PM »
But the price difference isn't really that much now. They can be bought for 500-800 more. Yes that is a good chunk of money but not enough to put it in completely different market. When the mk4 was in the $3000 range I would agree it was different price market. My guess is by the end of the year it will be less than $500 difference.

EOS Bodies / Re: Can the new 7d mark ii challenge the 1d mark iv?
« on: November 13, 2014, 11:39:07 AM »
Personally, not only do I think they are both aimed at quite different markets,
I'm not sure what you are considering different markets because everybody I know with either camera or even the original 7d use them for exactly the same thing. Which is primarily sports/wildlife. What separates the two cameras market is mainly price and not how they are used. Therefore in my opinion a comparison between the two is very important. Even if the 1d Mk iv is no longer in production there is a lot of them available on the used market.

Lenses / Re: More EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II Talk [CR2]
« on: October 28, 2014, 04:39:49 PM »
Late fall is not the best time to start selling the lens, fair weather photographers like me won't use one until late next spring.  On the other hand, if camera and lens sales continue to be poor, we might see better prices by Spring.
It's only late fall on half the world. Late spring in the other half. Keep in mind it is before Christmas in all the world and many will make this purchase for a present or use Christmas money they recieve to buy it if avaliable.
