Posted this is another thread , and it may have been mentioned elsewhere by someone first, but here's some quick indoor test shots that Matt Granger took at CP+ using the lens and a 5Ds:

Matt Granger has posted his mini review/preview of the 5Ds and new 11-24mm lens from CP+ for those that are interested.


EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 5Ds & EOS 5Ds R Image & Video Samples

lots of resolution available, but the OOC jpg is still showing plenty of characteristic Canon noise in blue sky at base ISO. This doesn't feel like an Exmor type sensor unless there's been a sudden jump in per-pixel noise with those smaller photosites.
Any further info on what's in the box yet?

I'll still stay with my ABC cameras for now, 5dsr doesn't appear to do me any favors over an 800e at that price.

Really? Noise in the blue sky? I'm not really seeing it...even when I zoom in it looks good.

I did find, however, what I think is a small piece of sensor dust in the photo if you look just slightly right of the helicopter next to the volcano on the left.

Did anyone decide to update? Any problems/surprises?

Interesting! Doesn't really add anything too exciting. I'll hold off until other people update. I have always been leery of new software releases, and even seemingly reliable companies can release turds from time to time (Apple - Yosemite & iOS 8 ).

I shot this last winter. The expression on the mountain goat's face gets me every time.

Encountered a herd of 150+ elk in RMNP.  6D / Tamron 150-600

Beautiful shots! That last one too, especially. :)

I just hope I can still purchase a full downloadable version; I don't want a cloud version

If the Pancake is an option, the Pancake is always the correct choice.

Love my pancake!

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Sony closing down?

Damn, I like the Sony Store in Calgary at Chinook Center. I've never bought anything in there (probably like everyone else, which is why it's closing), but I always enjoyed going in there and playing with their cameras.

How does this area look on other 1DX owners' cameras?

I'm still curious to hear others' opinions too.

Thanks for the response. I looked at a store demo unit today and it's got a tiny lip, but no where as pronounced.

*sigh* I think I'll just send it in again (for a sixth time) rather than potentially break it.

I can't believe how bad Canon Canada CPS is.

Anyone think the body panel fitment will affect the camera's weather sealing?

Since I bought my 1DX in June of this year I've had to send it in to Canon a total of five times. Every time I send the camera in, Canon Canada CPS (platinum member) sends it back with more problems than it fixes.

This latest round of problems are threefold:

1) There is now dust on the inside of my viewfinder eyepiece that was not there before. I sent the camera in for my Transmissive LCD being out of alignment with my focus points. They obviously didn't clean anything before putting it back together.

2) They had removed the rubber hand grip for the vertical/portrait orientation, and they obviously contaminated the adhesive of the grip because it no longer sits down completely and will most likely start peeling the first time I get the camera wet or it goes from cold to hot and condensation gets in there.

3) My main concern. Also near the vertical/portrait shutter they've taken apart the body. Right next to the shutter button the body splits into three pieces, with a small thin metal piece in between the two main body panels. I had a piece of 3M invisible shield tape running overtop of all three panels to protect against knocks and scratches when I'm on the ground or rest the camera on something. The Canon technician must have lifted the piece of invisible shield to get into the camera, but when he put everything back together he actually closed the camera up with the portion of tape he peeled up hanging in-between the body panels. I actually didn't notice this for close to a month after getting the camera back and I've since pulled the tape out. There's now a slight lip where the body panels do not fit completely flush anymore.

My concern is that since there is this lip between the body panel pieces, is there a chance the camera is not properly weather sealed?

I loathe to send the camera back to Canon at this point. I'm trying to learn whether this is something I can live with and not worry about when I use the camera as it was intended to be used. 

I'm attaching some pictures of the raised lip.
