Indeed! And I was wondering whether the new 100-400 would be practical for photographing sunsets.Edit: Just seen that TDP has the image quality data on its site. There seems nothing between the 5.6 400 and the vii
Well, in the corners, the 5.6 400 L looks better to my eyes and this becomes even more pronounced if you compare both lenses with the 2xIII attached:
However, I expect that in real life and @ 800 mm/f 11 you will have more keepers with the zoom than with the prime most of the time due to the IS, unless you have reaaaly good light.
I'm not so sure. The 400 prime has better light transmission than the new 100-400. 21 lens elements vs 7 on the prime. IS may help but it doesn't help in every situation. It's the zoom trade off.
Errr... of the four EF-M lenses we get to choose from... (11-22, 18-55, 22, 55-200)
But I still don't think Canon has launched a mirrorless system until they give us a @#$%ing EVF and more than two native lenses to choose from at B&H. The embarrassment of the EOS-M is not the product so much as Canon pushing a ship in flames out of port with a vague intention to 'put that fire out soon'.
That 22mm pancake is one hell of a lens of the two we get to choose from.
I'll edit your sentence above. I stand behind the original argument.
I agree with you completely (it's a great lens), but that's like enjoying your new car... that doesn't have brakes or any gears above second. EOS-M is super-high IQ point and shoot that happens to have a removable lens mount for some reason. But until the EVF and native EF-M glass comes forward, it's DOA competitively as a standalone system.
+1 Finally! I believe you should have written that statement in bold!and at least Adobe has offered their package at a reasonable price (finally !).
not if you do video work too
Once upon a time you used to be able to even do something like upgrade InDesign once every three gens and Premiere Pro package (including PS) once every three gens and then add in a stand alone PS upgrade along the way if needed. Or forget the InDesign and just upgrade PP every once in a while and PS extra as needed.
And with the rental model, you can pay them for years, thousands of dollars and then if you quit you have nothing, nada, to show for all that money spent. You don't get to keep anything even if you did it for years and spent thousands.
Hi thereHmm, they way I see it you can either get an "old" and expensive 5D mark III nor in a non-dual pixel 6D
Just yesterday I read my monthly photographers magazine and there was a review on the all new Nikon D750. The spec-list matched 100% with the camera I'm waiting for Canon to release somewhere near (Nikon released 5 full-frames in the last year!).
The idea is clear, pick a Canon 70D, put a full-frame sensor in it, add a few extra focus points in it and you're done. Canon may brand it like the Canon 6D Mark II, but anyway I wan't to have it soon!
If I hadn't spent all the effort (and money) to get familiar with the Canon eco-system I would have switched already. I started in photography in 2006 with a 400D, Canon EF-S 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 II (which is still my only and main DSLR) but in the years I've invested into EF lenses and a flash (Canon EF 50 f/1.8 II (2006 and 2009 (first one broke when dropped), Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II USM (2013), Canon EF 16-35 f/4.0L IS USM (2014), YN600EX-RT (2014)).
So, I think I followed the saying - invest in glass first - quite well, but now I would like to attach a nice body to it without buying an "old" and expensive 5D mark III nor in a non-dual pixel 6D.
Are there other "prosumers" feeling the same way?
If you discover it on time, if you can send it back (= if they accept it), if company has a solution, if you can do without it for some time, if it is a dud and not a design error, etc....QC is dying...
Fortunately! I'd rather send back a bad copy now and again than to have 1/3rd more of the price.
You just have to be prepared for it, and the question is if there are just some duds or the whole production line is crappy (I'm thinking of you, Yongnuo!).
Leaky Canons and Nikons. Is Sony the new king?I wouldn't think so...
+1 I do hope they will leave MPixels the same though and they will concentrate on sensor improvement...If they can't deliver better AF than the A7II, there is a whole lot of need for the 5DIV...
What exactly is left to get better anyway with ff phase af? The only obvious difference is the size of the af array, i.e. the spread of the af points to the edges. But looking at all ff cameras, Canon or not, this seems to be either very hard or very expensive to do.
Thus I imagine the 5d4 advances will be different:
* minor fps advancement
* minor advancement in res
* but dpaf and 120fps@hd for video
* 7d2+ fw features (anti filicker, intervalometer, ...)
* 7d2 hw features (gps, sealing)
* 5d3 bugs fixed (slow sd writing, no af indicator while tracking).
The real question for the 5d3's success is if there will be any visible advance in sensor iq, at least to 6d/1dx/7d2 lack of banding and maybe 0,5-1ev better snr. Combine that, and it's solid upgrade like Canon likes it.
