With Canon lenses mounted on a Canon camera, I've watched it focus on something and lock, then I press the focus button again, it de-focuses and refocuses again. Why can't it just "know" that it has acquired focus and not move the second time?
That part of the focusing algorithm is necessary because your camera has no knowledge that it hasn't moved or whatever you are shooting hasn't moved. It may have GPS in some models, but I've yet to hear of one with gyroscopes, accelerometers, and radar.  ;D

Edit: I see Lightmaster was thinking the same thing I was. Great minds think alike!

I love the look... but I can't help but imagine how dirty those rubber grip areas will look in very short order.

Where's the real world weakness of aps against FF ? I find it's the high ISO Performance. From a marketing point of view FF can probably stand on its larger size benefit so Canon could afford to improve aps low light performance without taking too much away from potential new FF sales. How about an aps-c sensor with larger pixels, using the latest tech but still keep a resolution of around 14 to 16 mp.
+1 I really like this idea.
The only thing which has kept me from pulling the trigger on a 70D is seeing if the 7D2 will have improved high ISO performance over all the other APS-C sensors Canon's released so far. If the 7D2 can magically narrow the gap between the FF and APS-C low-light performance they'll have a sale here. And if they 7D2 underwhelms, it's more likely I'll be able to pick up the 70D at a lower price in the future (at this pace, we seem to be talking 2015-2016 time frame  :P). But I'm willing to wait as I don't "need" another camera right now.

What overpriced crap. >:( Now a Gucci camera bag would be TOTALLY worth it.  ::)

Photography Technique / Re: Photography fail moments !!!

I was recently traveling and was in the aisle seat. The pilot announced that we were flying over Mumbai. The lady in the window seat whipped out a 70D from her bag, flash popped on and she proceeded to take photos of Mumbai from about 10000 ft with the flash on.

I still remember the shock on her face when she checked the LCD after taking the photos and them commenting ... This is supposed to be a good camera!!!  :o

I'm guessing you left out the part where you politely showed her how to get the shot she was trying. ;) Even with my limited skills and experience, I have been able to help out quite a few people who were trying to capture special moments (kid's sports, special events, group photos, etc.). It's an incredible look on someone's face when you show them what they can achieve with their "crappy" cameras if they take some time to learn more about it.

EOS Bodies / Re: Hybrid Viewfinder Coming To Canon DSLRs? [CR1]
« on: January 15, 2014, 10:49:05 AM »
Sounds interesting. If true, does that mean Canon thinks this development (hybrid viewfinder) somehow eclipses the touch focus (by introducing it in 7DII instead of 70D)? Or maybe it is just another option. But I fail to see what is the big advantage of the hybrid viewfinder over the larger back screen (other than power consumption/visability in adversely bright situations).

I'm sure someone smarter than me (low threshold) can point out the additional advantages.  ;D

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Yongnuo YN-E3-RT Officially Released

My YN-E3-RT arrived today. Nice build, quick setup, works great so far. Tested single flash setup,  groups, adjusting settings, turning units off/on, AF assist lamp, etc. I'm glad I waited for the YN version. No complaints whatsoever.

Bravo, Nikon. It's great to see boundaries being pushed in the MILC marketplace. If I had this specific need (ecotourism, snorkeling, etc.), I'd be all over it.

Really like that lens and it works well on crop and FF, with two different flavours ;-)
Thanks for sharing. I always enjoy the pics you post!

I just read 50 1.4 review and completely have no idea why NOONE mentions about its huge problems with AF.
I've never had this issue, at least not that I know of (also using a 5D3)... but I also don't necessarily do focus calibration tests. I take photographs of subjects, and if they're "off" I adjust (I've done this with my Sigma 35 1.4 slightly).

Anyone else have this issue?
Nope. Used same lens/body combo for about 6 months before finding the 1.2L for a bargain.

I suspect I can answer why no one else mentions this huge issue: Nobody else is having the same issue as the poster asking the question.  ;) Let's see: 1 body, 7 copies of the same lens. What are the common denominators here?

It would be a dead giveaway if the thumbs were visible in frame. (If you don't know to what I am referring, google it.)

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Can this 7D package be worth over $9500?

Nah. I'd say no more than $9450, tops. ;)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: RAW or JPEG
« on: September 08, 2013, 11:28:27 PM »
100% Raw I need all the help I can get too cover my crap technique..
You beat me to the punch. This is exactly my attitude!  :D

True that. Hard to say whether it hurts more to pay it at the time of sale or at end of the year.

Saw those a couple days ago and was surprised. Thoughts of a 300mm 2.8 ii floated through my head briefly until I realized that with tax, it's only about $300 off amazon price for a new one.
