I just held mine up to my ear and can hear a little noise which I was guess is the rails. It is so faint I would have never noticed it if I wasn't trying to hear it. Wouldn't worry about it unless it was loud and easy to hear.

It's just the spring of the pop-up flash moving freely when you shake the camera or change holding position for portrait/landscape-type shooting. If you press the flash open, the sound stops as the spring becomes loaded. Nothing to worry about as it also happened with my 7D MkI and my 600D.This makes no sense at all. If the spring isn't loaded with flash down then it wouldn't pop up. There may be something else that doesn't have pressure when flash is down but it won't be the spring. I've never had or even seen a camera make a noise when tilted. I would send it in for repair.
I was kinda wondering the same thing. What does he have against the 1Dx if he recommending a high priced ff? Where does the D4s beat the 1Dx for sports or wildlife? If they're good friends then they may be sharing the same smoke pipe.I happen to be friends with Ron and have worked with him for some time. While I do not always agree with his reviews, he's pretty straight up. One thing is he has always stated what he thought about products - even when it wound up pissing off his sponsors. Keep in mind that the majority of big review sites out there have to temper their disappointments in order to not suffer financially.
In terms of his review on the 7D2, I happen to agree with it. \
so you recommend that someone who is not using the 7D MK II for wildlife or sports buy a D4s? A D4s won't do sports or wildlife? What is he on??
I think you missed the point of this forum. It is called rumors for a reason. Wouldn't be much talk here if it only reported things written in stone. I think its interesting to hear peoples ideas and just maybe from time to time some Canon people will visit to see what we want them to improve.I have received this information a few times over the years, but nothing has never come to fruition, so I’ve never lent much credence to it... It’s definitely possible, but I wouldn’t write it in stone yet.Why bother then writing now?
I leave it to you to judge on your own.
Personally, not only do I think they are both aimed at quite different markets,I'm not sure what you are considering different markets because everybody I know with either camera or even the original 7d use them for exactly the same thing. Which is primarily sports/wildlife. What separates the two cameras market is mainly price and not how they are used. Therefore in my opinion a comparison between the two is very important. Even if the 1d Mk iv is no longer in production there is a lot of them available on the used market.
Late fall is not the best time to start selling the lens, fair weather photographers like me won't use one until late next spring. On the other hand, if camera and lens sales continue to be poor, we might see better prices by Spring.It's only late fall on half the world. Late spring in the other half. Keep in mind it is before Christmas in all the world and many will make this purchase for a present or use Christmas money they recieve to buy it if avaliable.
Don't you have light switches in the UK? Here in the USA we can turn on lights and I would be looking for a fly or spider on the wall or anything to try it out on.Got mine already.....battery on charge.
Is it charged yet
Yes but it's pitch black in the UK and there are limits to the high ISO performance
I only mentioned it because a user wrote that newer cameras necessarily have a better sensor across all aspects, and this simply isn't correct.I must have missed that because I haven't seen where anybody said a newer camera necessarily have a better sensor across all aspects.
The max. selectable iso says absolutely nothing about usable or clean iso - take the 5d2->5d3->6d, the latter has the highest usable iso, but the older 5d2 has still the best (sharpest/dr-rich) low iso. And there's unfortunately no one stopping marketing from implementing a H4 mode @iso51200 for impressive tech specs, even though it's a noise generator unless downsizing to 320x200.
Just sayin'. Awfully quiet in here...
Remember, rumors are generally for discussion and for fun. Taking them seriously will almost always leave you disappointed.
Exception: CR3 rumors are 99% likely.
Have Fun, and don't take rumors too seriously.
No need for the "Good grief" I don't recall anybody saying they were desperate for noisy pictures. Not sure where you conjured up that idea from. I clearly said they they will need to improve IQ or sales will drop. If you understood you would realize that the higher unusable max ISO rating they give will mean a higher usable ISO which means a cleaner low ISO. That is the way it works. Anytime they clean up the low end it will give them the ability to go higher. If they can go higher they will definitely use that number to boost sales. I never shoot above ISO 1600 now because of IQ and very seldom shoot above ISO 500. It would be very nice to have good clean pictures in the 1600- 3200 range for very low light wildlife shooting and super clean shots below that. Sorry if you got so touchy because I am not buying the rumor you posted. It's just rumor talk. Take a chill pill, relax and have fun. Keep in mind high mp and ISO ratings sell cameras and that is all any of these companies want, To sell products!If that ISO rumor is right then Canon will be kicking themselves. I'm not buying this rumor. Can't imagine the lower lever camera (T4i) having better ISO performance than their higher counterpart.
Good grief, it's about usable iso settings, what good would 6d-like settings do if all you get is noise? If you are so desperate for noisy pictures, just shoot @iso12800 on crop and underexpose -3ev...
... I'd be happy if Canon would end the marketing race in both the mp and iso setting category but just release sensors with more dr and 2 stops better iso than now.
