EOS Bodies / Re: Bingo! New Canon 5Ds has 50.6 MP new rumored specs

Not excited.  ISO 6400 camera is not for me.  Where is 5D MK4?

If you're working with ML firmware, stay on 1.2.3

I am going to stay with version 1.2.3.

Just wonder, what they will do next, after the Canon 11-24 F/4.0 infos have leaked...Could they do an 11-24 at half of the Canon price?

I also would like to see the 11-24mm from Tamron.  I have never been interested in 16-35mm f/2.8 or f/4 because I want a wider lens.  If Tamron can make 11/12-24mm UWA lens with current Tamron IQ level, I will be very interested in that.

It looks nice but I rarely use such a w/a and have a Sigma 12-24, bought new (worth about £300 now) that will suffice. Doubt if there will be a dramatic improvement over the Sigma.

I sold my Sigma 12-24mm because my copy is very soft.  I actually am very interested in this Canon EF 11-24mm lens.  Hopefully the price tag will be about 2.5K.

I care only if 5D IV will have 4K video or not.

Better for what?  Cameralabs scored the Sony and the Canon at 89 points each.  The Canon is better for portraits with the longer lens whereas the Sony has electronic viewfinder but no touchscreen.  The Panasonic will have better IQ and 4K video recording but won't fit in a normal pocket and has an external flash which must also be carried along with the lens cap.  If you are going to get a camera that won't fit into a pocket for $900 why not just go APS-C and get the Sony A6000?

For me LX100 and A6000 is still very portable and can put to my pocket and my wife's bag without any problem.  However, I prefer LX100 because of the 4K video.  Of cause I need to see some reviews of LX100 before I make a decision.  Again, I am interested in only Sony RX100MK3 and Panasonic LX100.  For you LX100 and A6000 might be too big, but for me that's still a good size.  If A6000 had 4K video, surely I might not consider LX100.

I actually is more interested in a review of Sony RX100M3 vs Panasonic LX100.  I would like to pick one of them for my wife.  The LX100 has really good specs.  However, I cannot tell which one is better from just specs.

I wanted to buy Tamorn 150-600mm.  However, it's back order anywhere.  Actually that's a good thing because I have one more option for 150-600mm lens from Sigma.  Just wonder when we will see the review and test for it.

The thing is, my wife and daughter don't care at all about resolution and are perfectly happy watching SD versions of TV broadcasts, and usually won't bother to switch to the HD versions of the same broadcasts.

lol.  Man thought vs woman thought.  My wife also never care about HD things.  She is also enjoying SD videos.

One limit is the resolution of our eyes. If you look at a 42'' Screen from 4 meter, between 720p and 1080p there is no visible difference.

42" for 4 meter is not right distance.  I believe 55"+ is suggested for 4 meter distance.  For me I can clearly tell the different between 720p and 1080p from my 58" TV from about 6 meter in my living room.  I really need a 65" to 70" 4K or 8K TV for my living room.  The only problem is the input source is not ready yet.

I switched to Tamron 24-70 VC from Canon 24-70 MK1.
1. Tamron has better IQ.
2. Canon has faster AF.
3. I feel AF on Tamron is more accurate than Canon MK1.
4. Tamron has great VC(IS).
5. Tamron does have more onion ring bokeh than Canon MK1.

Here is my opinion.
If you need faster AF and better IQ with extra 1000 dollars, go to sell your MK1 and get MK2.  Otherwise, you should either switch to Tamron now or wait for Sigma 24-70.

I am still using my old HTC M7 for video and picture for notes.  The IQ is very good especially for low light.  I will stay with HTC (M9?) if it has 4K video.  Basically I try to avoid using phone camera for photos.

I will consider switching to other Nikon/Sony next time when I want to have a big upgrade, but not now.  I am really fine with my current gears.  Another important reason is Magic Lantern support.
