EOS Bodies / Re: No EOS-1D X Replacement in 2014 [CR2]
« on: September 29, 2014, 09:35:06 AM »
But when?

I'm mostly curious about the 5D replacement.  Spring or not?
Not spring. Canon has to milk buyers with the 7D2 for a year or so. If they released 5D4 with 7D2's AF feature in spring (5 months after 7D2 got released (not introduced)), who would buy the 7D2, if the 5D4 offers same or even tweaked AF with slightly lower frame, but better IQ?

I find it strange they haven't introduced a new rebel yet. It's been 18 months now.

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 7D Mark II: More High ISO Samples
« on: September 28, 2014, 03:30:56 AM »
until i see indoor action (sport) images in poorly lit gymnasiums, i will not call 7DII to be an improvement in High ISO department over the 70D. daily high ISO shots don't show nothing, neither do well lit structures at night.

and not think that it has something to do, at least partly, with differences in camera technology (particularly at the high end.) ..... It's just difficult to think the market share shift is entirely unrelated to the differences in sensor technology.
The reason why Nikon's sales went up compared to Canon (in the High end part) is because they release their s.h.i.t. every 6 months (with incremental improvements - D600/D610, D800e/D810, D4/D4s), and people jump for the new stuff.

If Canon released a new 1D and a new 5D body in, let's say 8 months time difference, Nikon would probably lose sales on all ends except for D810.

No reason to preorder "new" technology before all the bugs are worked out!
this isn't Nikon :P

EOS Bodies / Re: Am I the only one excited about the new 7D mk2?
« on: September 22, 2014, 03:21:34 AM »
as an outdoor sports camera, super excited, you cannot get any better (minus the 1DX/D4s). as an indoor, not really excited. early tests show almost no improvement over the 70D in ISO.

TBH the 5DMKIII has a great AF and at 6.5fps and FF quality you can't go wrong...
it's 6 FPS, not 6.5 FPS.

another vote for 5DIII.

Almost no difference compared to 70D. Atleast not at 6400 ISO. I didn't go higher.

who ever wants to have a NX1 over the 7D2 should get their eyes checked. the thing looks worse than a bucket of smashed vaginas.

what is this, 1990's?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Some thoughts on the 7D2...

congratulations on opening 53th thread about 7D2. why didn't you feel the need to post your thoughts in other, already started "discussion about 7D2" threads?

EOS Bodies / Re: 7DII No Wifi
« on: September 16, 2014, 02:07:51 PM »
too each his own. i never, not once used wi-fi on my 70D, nor would i use gps. if DSLRs would come in different flavours (without GPS & Wi-Fi, only GPS, only Wi-Fi, with GPS & Wi-Fi), i would definitely buy the one without these two and save money.

Noise performance is noticeably better than 7D.
Maybe I'm wrong but 60D/7D noise @ ISO 3200 is similar to 7D2 noise @ ISO 12800
Canon sample pictures, eh? 3200ISO on 70D (portrait sax guy) was clean as a whistle, real world images are far from the truth. That squirrel at 3200ISO look pretty good, but 1- its daylight and 2- Canon sample pictures.

Still, you are saying 7D2 has 2 stop ISO advantage over the 60D. that's ludicrous.

I think the new camera sounds ace and I want one but I'm a bit miffed at the price here in the UK. at current exchange rates the US price of 1800$ works out at about £1100 and the European price of 1700 euros at about £1350. Yet we are to be charged £1600. Rip off Britain strikes again.
European price in Slovenia means 2000 euros (2587$) and not 1700, as you stated.
