Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Review: Zeiss 135mm f/2 APO Sonnar T*
« on: July 26, 2014, 01:03:17 PM »
If only Zeiss made AF Canon lenses.  :P

I think I can safely say that all of us agree with you on that point.  This lens with AF and IS would be worth $3000+.  It is crazy good optically.

You could just buy an a99, or A7R and E4 adapter paired with the Sony 135 sonnar f.18 and have AF

$1700

I don't see why the G1X II would be any less than $799 at launch.  The RX100 II is still $699, and the G1X II is offers a heck of a lot more than that camera. 

I paid full price for the original G1X, and I'll do the same here.  To me the G1X was my dream camera, minus the 1cm macro form the G series.  The Mark II offers 5cm macro, a full stop faster, wifi, 24mm, and almost same size as EOS M.  Al-in-all it IS my dream camera, and in fact its MORE than I even dreamed of getting!!!  I'm not one those folks that dreams outside the laws of physics, lol.   BRAVO Canon.  Proved to EVERYBODY (Not literally) that they are the best of the best.  Sony looked good for a little while anyway. lol

Bring on the Mark II, WITHOUT the EFV, which I think is pretty dorky looking in practice. hahaha

You can get a Sony a6000 for $800 with faster AF, better DR, better lowlight, more AF points, 90% AF coverage, AND EVF.

FOR $800!

G1X mk2 killer
watch from 1:20...
11fps WITH tracking.

Size? Lens speed for the same price? Also, not everyone needs tracking. Otherwise, A6000 looks cool.

http://camerasize.com/compact/#375.360,257,ha,t

size of previous gen (nex 6 and g1x)

pricing is $800 with 16-50 3.5-5.6 lens

still packs apsc and faster af + faster burst.

EOS-M / Re: The Next EOS M? [CR1]
« on: May 12, 2013, 12:31:16 AM »
Yawn - I'm seriously considering a Sony Nex-6  8)

A little too late I just sold a Sony Nex 6 and bought an M with both lenses.Don't belive all the hype I thought it sucked.  The battery lasted about an hour the iq is not as good as the M.It's always is focusing and no way to turn it off andeats batteries like candy.It does focus a little faster for sure,but it's no SLR either.Also do any of you naysayers here actually own one?

1. The battery lasts for about 300 shots,
2. The IQ is BETTER than the EOS M http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Cameras/Compare-Camera-Sensors/Compare-cameras-side-by-side/(appareil1)/832%7C0/(brand)/Sony/(appareil2)/819%7C0/(brand2)/Canon
3. "its always focusing" TURN OFF THE CONTIUOUS FOCUSING.


Maybe you just didnt know how to use the camera. NEX 6 blows away the EOS M in everything.

NEX 6, Mirrorless is the future. I played with the SL1 and the viewfinder was AWFULLY dark, there is no need for OVF anymore or a mirror. Have you seen the stock lens on the SL1? Its LARGER than the other 18-55 lenses on the other canon bodies.  This time next year I will have mostly mirrorless system and an RX1. I find I take out my NEX camera everywhere I go. I hate bringing my 5D anywhere because it is so large. It doesnt matter how well the 5D takes photos if it just stays home most of the time. Remember, the best camera is the one you have with you.

EOS Bodies / Re: The Future of EOS M [CR1]
« on: May 07, 2013, 01:49:26 AM »
For me a csc only has the csc main selling point with a pancake lens.

99% of the time my M will have the 22mm fitted and will fit in my pocket in a way that a DSLR wouldn't.

It'll be miles better IQ than the SX230 that lives in my glovebox.

And if I'm going to bastardize the CSC concept by putting anything other than a pancake on it, then it might as well be a lens that I already own, and I can't do that with a panasonic, fuji or sony.

For me, and I'm feeling increasingly isolated, the M makes quite a lot of sense used in the way it was designed to be used, which was never as an SLR beater, in the same way that none of the other CSCs are SLR beaters.


Cant mount huh?

I'm sorry your EOS M is on the 4th page of this list, but there ARE mirrorless cameras out there that beat most dslrs

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS-b Images Leak & a New Kit Lens
« on: March 20, 2013, 04:06:43 PM »
I don't consider that a downside, as using EF lenses with an adapter negates the small form factor anyway. That's one of the reasons I decided to go ahead and buy the NEX-6 since I couldn't care less if I'm using e-mount or EOS-M mount lenses.

Besides - apparently there is a really crazy adapter for using EF lenses on E-mount:

I see that totally differently.  I want a really hi-end Canon mirrorless cam. If I want to go light an small, I would use it with a really compact foldable kit-zoom and/or a bunch of really good and really small EF-M pancake fixed focals.
When size and weight are less critical, I would want to use it with my existing hi-end EF/EF-S glass, using an original Canon adapter, that fully and natively supports any and all Canon mount-protocols issues  ... from AF to IS to ETTL-flash with distance information.   

The last thing on earth I would want is having to fiddle around with third-party lens adapters, that will never truly and fully support all of Canons totally proprietary lens mount protocol. And i certainly do not want to buy a Sony mirrorless cam. I greatly prefer the Canon UI, that I am am very familiar with.



Meanwhile metabones has a. EOS to nex focal reducer to gain a stop of light and make your nex like a 35mm sensor. When will EOS m have this?


Also... Ettl... Might as well put your camera in auto

OK, at the time of it's introduction the D800 had already been announced. The D800 was announced Feb 7th, 2012, the 5DIII March 2nd. The 1DX was announced on Oct 18, 2011 and released in March. So, it was never actually surpassed by the 1DX, it never was as good. I'm not slamming the 5DIII AF, as it is awesome, i'm just showing that your facts aren't facts at all.

Physician, kettle, mote, etc.

I and thousands others had thousands of exposures on our 5DIIIs long before you could even officially pre-order a 1Dx. And the D800 is many wonderful things, but it only surpasses the 5DIII in megapickle count and dynamic range -- its autofocus is far shy of the 5DIII's -- as are almost all of its other features. That you should suggest it's got better autofocus than the 5DIII...and then start whipping the dead dynamic range horse and claiming the D800 has better high ISO performance....

...yeah. Troll.

Even if you're not intentionally trolling, which I rather doubt by now, you're still trolling.

Neuro, are you ready to stop standing on the sidelines while people argue against my FACTS with their OPINIONS. I have been killed on this board for using my opinion to make arguments many times. I presented factual numbers from DXOMARK. I explained that I don't think they are the best numbers, but they are at least numbers by a lab. What have you used for your argument, 100% opinion.
The D800 was measured as having better high ISO performance than the 5DIII.
I'm not saying it's a better camera, i'm simply saying that YOU ARE USING OPINION.
DO YOU HAVE ANY FACTS TO SHOW THAT THE 5DIII has better HIGH ISO performance?
Are you even reading my posts? I never said the D800 has better AF. I said the 1DX has better AF and that it was announced before the 5DIII. Whether it was available or not at the time, there was never any doubt in my mind that the AF of the 1DX would be superior.
You guys just spent a page killing our newcomer for not agreeing with you, all the while you have ignored that I presented numbers showing the D800 has better high ISO performance. I never mentioned DR in any earlier posts as I agree it is has been overblown(pardon the pun), however I don't discount it's importance. It's obviously better to have good DR than not to.
How did you rebuke the high ISO dxomark scores? by yeling, "Troll" "Troll" "troll"
TrumpetPower, please show me numbers, not opinions, but factual evidence from anywhere showing that the 5DIII is better at high ISO? I'm curious to see why you are so positive that the 5DIII is better.

As I said in earlier posts, I don't really care all that much for DXOMark, but I don't know where else to turn for lab measured numbers on cameras.
Also, people on this board can bash DXOmark scores all they want, but when Admin posted this thread with false 1DX scores, people were thrilled to gloat about the superior scores of the 1DX.... until they found out the numbers were false, when they went back to hating DXO. lol!  http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=10075.0
You can disagree with me all you want, it's fine. But please don't call me a troll when i'm at least trying to give evidence. All you have given us is your opinion.
Once again, please show me where any 3rd party has definitively said the 5DIII has better high ISO.
What are you trying to achieve?
To show that my opinions based on facts are being lambasted by simple opinions with no facts?

DR comparison ;)

How's those photos coming along?

I give an example of how DR is used and this is all you can come up with.

The reason the T4i is not that good is beacuase of the video AF fail.  Can anyone tell from the leaked specs whether the video AF will be fixed?  If just this one very important feature is fixed, that is enough to justify a new model.  Otherwise, I sat on the fence with the t4I, will stay on the fence with the t5I, too.
I assume you are angry that it doesn't smoothly track moving objects? If so, expect to be unimpressed with future offerings for the next decade. The shallowness of the DOF makes creating a useable video AF nearly impossible. The camera has to decide which high contrast area to focus on when there are numerous options and then smoothly transition to the correct one. Except then people will complain its slow, so it makes those transitions fast, thus looking jerky.

Basically, the AF tracking system of Canon's most expensive DLSR (at $6k) can lock focus on an object at 12fps for several seconds. Yet, a good video AF would have to do the same at 30fps or 60fps for minutes at a time. Ain't gonna happen on a <$1000 DSLR. If you want video AF, you want a camcorder with a small sensor.

Or a Sony alt camera... Translucent mirror works wonders for video.
