From my point of view the 1Ds never had a succesor. The 1D X is the FF succesor to the 1D4 and that's all.
The highest megapixel camera are the 5D3 and the 1Ds. Canon will come with something.
The 5D line should be more wise since I believe this is their best seller FF for the pros. 5D4 needs new tech for more dynamic range and ISO speeds. It is what I'm looking for the next 5D

Once again, cool stuff for videographers.
Hey Canon, we are here too, photographers ! Hope you can remember me, your client, for the AutoISO exposure compensation in the 5D3 M mode. Just in case you've forgotten.
Also do something to bring the smile back to my face. Make me proud being with you.
That's me,
Your 10 years client!

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Off Brand: Nikon Announces the Df

Once again Canon seems to look so boring.
At least Nikon is trying to do something even if the Df is not that inovative. But GOD I like it a lot and its specs.
I have a 5D2 and a 5D3. I'll sell the 5D2 for the new to come in my bag, the Df. Maybe it's my ticket to Nikon.
For a  while I'll keep both systems.
For the past 2 years the only things they did inovative was the damn radio into 600EX-RT. It's great but not enough for the hall system.
They need a big refresh, bodies and lenses.
Where's the 5D with great DR and ISO ?
Where is the compact(retro) body with top specs for the pure photographer ?
Where are the 50mm lenses ?
Where are the 85mm lenses ?
Where is the new 35L ? Sigma smacked them with de 35/1.4 Art lens.

So Canon if my opinion counts then you should do:
A body in the Df style but with the 5D3 AF, slimer and lighter. Yes I would pay 2,5k.
Bring them faster into the market: 35/1.4L II, 50/2 IS, 58/1.4, 85/2 IS
5D4 with no more than 18mpx and great DR, good ISO 6400, 12800, a little better than the 1DX.
The mirrorless FF.

No word about Auto ISO and exposure compensation in M .
Looking forward for the next Nikon DF.
Why is Nikon so inovative ? Why Olympus, Fuji, Sony is too ? Why why why ?
Canon was so boring in the past 5 years.

EOS Bodies / Re: Shot wedding with 5DIII, dissapointed in AF
« on: January 02, 2013, 01:33:55 PM »
Anything new ?
Even with the last firmware, 5D3  works the same bad way in low light. I still have de 5D2 and it locks faster.
Any answer from Canon ?

I am sure this has been discussed before but I just can't figure out why the 5D3 focuses so slowly when the AF assist is enabled on my flash.  Many times I have been at a wedding reception and I get frustrated with very slow focusing issues related to the AF assist beam.  I have messed around with turning it on and off and there is a very noticeable difference.  For example with my 70-200 as long as I find an area of some contrast it will focus almost instantly even dark situations.  As soon as I turn it on it sometimes takes a full second or two to lock focus.  I remember my 5D2 having improved focus with the AF assist from the 580exII.  Is it a flash issue or a camera issue?  I know there are a lot of you who have the same problems.  Anyone find any solutions?  Most of the time I don't need the AF assist but when it is pitch black and I need it it would be nice if I could focus a little faster.  I just don't understand how the AF can be so great in almost all situations except this one area.  Of course when I call CPS they claim they have never heard of an issue.     
I was wondering how the camera was set up to shoot, was it in one shot mode or AI servo? Ps have you tried using center point only? I am interested in this set up myself but now am a little unsure i want to until the issue is solved.

The AF assist only works with one shot.  I usually use the center point if it is really dark because it works a little better.  I would still get the 5D3 and a few 600ex-rt flashes if I were you.  They work great considering this one issue which is frustrating but you can work around it fairly easily.
I'm not so impressed when it comes to low light focusing. The 5D2 still does faster.

It happens to me too. So sad. I bought it (5D3) for its low light capabilities and I ended up with the old 5D2 in complete darkness. What a shame.

And I thought that I'm the only one with this problem.
Here too, 5D3 with 600EX-RT focuses slower in the dark with the AF beam.
The rule with full shutter press is working but still anoying, when 5D2 focuses faster in the same conditions with the same 600EX.
So dear Canon could you just upgrade this instead of the price I paid ?

Lenses / Re: Which L lens will be the first mark III?

My bet would be 85/1.2L III.

Agree with you.

I want that bad the new 35/1.4 II. There are things that can be improved.

#1 35/1.4 L - Needs more sharpness under 2.0
#2 85/1.8 IS - Make it 1.8 IS with faster AF and keep the 1.2 without IS
#3 50/1.8 IS - The same thing as above
#4 135/2 L IS - A new design with IS and that's all

The big splash would be the new afordable FF body or the highest megapixel body.
For the last few years Canon strategy really sucks; so no more big splash.
If you'd ask me, the big splash would be a new increase of prices.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Best place to buy 5D Mark III

For the next few days I'll be in the states, New York.
I want to buy the 5D3 and as I can see online there is no store to have it.
Do you know in NY a store to have it ?

Lighting / Re: 600EX RT + transmitter + 5d MK2 Sync speed
« on: May 04, 2012, 02:24:25 AM »
I'm interesed in the next scenarios, how it deals with:
1. 600EX-RT wireless group mode on a 5D2. It works ?
2. Having a 5D2 and a 5D3 both with 600EX-RT and 600EX-RT remotes, is there a chance to work together ? This means if the system with 5D2 is capable to be integrated in the same setup of remotes with a 5D3. Let's say using the group mode on the 5D3 and 5D2 at the same time, or using the group mode on the 5D3 and normal remote radio wireless mode on 5D2.
I have PW and 580s for now and I want to upgrade but keep my 5D2.
