Pricewatch Deals / Re: Deal: EOS M w/22mm f/2 STM $249

In Brazil, this kit costs $700 U.S. dollars at the official Canon store. >:( I believe there are millions of units EOS-M not sold in USA, to sell them for the price of old stale bread. :-[

I have the great 100mm F2 USM. :) This jewel was underestimated by many photographers who know only the 100mm F2.8 macro. ::)

EF-S 24mm F2.8? :( Why not F2? >:( My zoom lenses already have F2.8 aperture, and I want at least F2 primes.

If it doesn't have flashing LED lights Canon is doomed.

Man, I do not know how I could shoot so many years without LED flashing:
Steal me, steal me, steal me, steal me. :P

The good news is that if it is a totally new sensor, it may be much better than the 70d and it will have better high ISO noise at 20.2 than 24 mp. Im all for a smaller sensor in aps-c. Truthfully, I wish it was closer to 12 or 16. We'd have a killer crop camera!
I'd be happier with a 16 megapixel sensor without dual pixel AF. Do not get me wrong. For the intended use of 7D Mark II (mini 1DX) the most important thing is a big improvement in noise above ISO 1600.

Very disappointing specs after so long a wait. IMO, minor evolutionary improvements.
That is how Canon operates. Look at their product development over the last 11 years and you'll see the same minor increments from one model to the next. If you're looking for revolutionary development then you've bought into the wrong camera system/brand.
Or, you can do what I have done - skip a bunch of generations.
I'm looking to buy the 7D replacement.  Do you think I'll see an evolutionary or revolutionary improvement compared to the camera I'm replacing, the 20D?
Those people who want to see great improvements in picture quality, must exchange your camera after 3 or 4 cycles of image sensor technology.
He will see a revolutionary difference?

In Canon land, 70d will crush the old 20D at ISO1600 but do not see a big difference in ISO200.  ;)

In Nikon land, D7100 will crush the old D70 at any ISO setting.  ::)

My conclusion is that the images produced by Nikon DSLR evolved more because in 2004 were more outdated.

Lenses / Re: A New Pancake Lens? [CR1]
« on: August 24, 2014, 09:16:12 AM »
I would love to have 20mm pancake on FF
I think we'd like a 20mm prime of any sort in FF.  Canon hasn't made a new once since 1992.
yeah a nice 20-21mm prime would be sweet - 21mm IS USM
pancakes at with canon's registration distance at 20mm? would have alot of compromises.
the Voigtländer 20mm 3.5 skopar is a good example. vignettes like hell, and blows the snot out at the corners.  it makes the 17-40 look good in the corners.
Not sure i would like that versus just having a regular 21mm as sharp as the other current 24,28,35 IS USM lenses - especially for under 1k.
unless this is an EF-S lens and if so, why 24mm? the same as 40mm on full frame perhaps?
for EF-S .. a more likely and needed lens would be a 30mm 1.8 EF-S IS STM  (IMO - but that's what everyone in the EF-S world usually complains about not having)
Canon 30mm F1.8 IS STM ... It would be a dream lens for me. ::) :-*

These specs sound like an update of 7D very conservative, with the exception of autofocus. ??? The big question will be: The picture quality is the same for 70D, or have visible improvements? :-\

The combination 16-35F4 + 24-105 + 70-300L makes a great set of lenses. This does not solve the problem (for his wife) to change lenses often.
Of these three, the 24-105 has more distortion and less sharpness than the other two, but still have superior image quality (in full frame) compared to your 18-135.
Your prime lenses will shine with 6D, but 50mm could be replaced by the great 35mm F2 IS in the future, to an angle of view more different of his 85mm.

I am the only one who does not trust media that can be deleted? ???
Pendrive, hard disc, SD card and all rewritable media may have accidentally deleted your files, or caused by computer viruses. ::)
Call me old, but I trust more in DVD-R medias high quality. ;)
Ok, you're old.
Thank you. I already knew. :P

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 6D or 7D mkII?
« on: August 14, 2014, 01:45:29 PM »
Anyone know how the 6D's AF system compares to that of a Rebel?
The current Rebel T5i have all focus points cross-type, and the central point of focus is dual cross-type. The 6D has no focus point dual cross-type, but can do autofocus in very dark environments.

In short, 6D has lower performance with focus points outside the center, and is slower to focus, but you can do it even in darkness.

Lenses / Re: 6D+70-300 DO *vs* 70D+55-250 STM
« on: August 10, 2014, 08:01:59 PM »
If you want to shoot up to ISO1600, so 70D + 55-250 STM clearly wins. On the other hand, at ISO6400 and higher 6D + 70-300 DO have an advantage on the issue of noise, if you can settle for the ugly bokeh.

Thank you for your test. He shows that APS-C may give better results in situations of limited reach and low ISO. For me it was not a surprise, because I've thought that way. I also know that if the comparison was made ​​in ISO6400, the result would be different. But this does not invalidate the test result in ISO200.

Another reason to love APS-C is price and weight of the lenses. Those who have held in their hands 7D + 300mm F4L and also 1Dx + 500mm F4L  (angle of view equivalent), know that the weight and price are very different. Yes, I know I have high noise in 7D ISO6400, but we hope that 7D Mark ii will close this gap.

Reviews / Re: NIKON Releasing a Medium format DSLR 50MP
« on: August 05, 2014, 08:56:44 PM »
If Nikon makes a new line of medium format cameras and lenses, seems like a guaranteed way to lose money.

I do not understand why Pentax took many years to launch a digital 645, and then released with a 33x44mm sensor... If the sensor is truly size 60X45mm would some buyers willing to spend $ 15,000 on a body.
