The true genius of the D800 was the D800E. I would gladly take an 22Mpx 5dmkIII. But I want to be able to have no anti alias filter. It makes a world of difference for sharpness, and it wouldn't hurt the sort of photography that the 5D shooters usually do. In any case, you could always buy it with the AA filter.
On the other hand, when pixel peeping the D3s and the D4, I find the high iso setting have lots of noise reduction and correspondingly very little sharpness. It's clear that the 1Dx has better underlying noise characteristics. So I hope to get that quality in the 5DmkIII, I don't care how many pixels.

What would be awesome is if they could somehow enable or disable the AA filter via a menu setting.

Here is how I see the new line up shaping up.

7D - $1299

5Dm2 21mp FF - $1799

5DX - 22mp FF 61pt AF, 6.9fps - $2499

3DX - 40mp FF 61pt AF, 4fps - $3499

1DX - 18mp FF 61pt AF - 12fps - $5999


I hope canon also makes a budget FF camera.  Imagine if the 7Dm2 was a 12mp FF for $1000 that would kill nikon

my 40D is amazing at ISO 409,600 especially in JPEG!

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L II

Price-wise, does it make sense? I just got a 5D Mark II in January, and it's the first time I've went full frame, my dad gave me his 40D to use for the last year or so. Other than a 50 1.4 and a 85 1.8, I want a lens that I can walk around with and not have to back up for group pictures, so I'm considering this one or 70-200 II.

I really didn't expect this to cost $2300 though when rumors started about it x-x

Any advice? :D

advice?  Save your pennies and get one.

SRaw is fine for many purposes.  I mean really, how many weddings or portrait shoots result in people wanting larger than a 20x30 print?  Generally for non-art shoots, I go with sRaw on my 7D - and sometimes when i do shoot art i forget to switch back to full size RAW.  I've done 20x30 prints from sRaw files, and they look pretty damn good!


Not many will want a 20x30 but if you shoot sRAW and someone does want it.. or even larger.. you would wish that you had indeed shot RAW instead.. why limit yourself.. storage is cheap. and you only get 1 chance to get it right.

why shoot sRaw? just shoot raw and downsize.. I never understood shooting at a quality less then your camera could provide..

Memory cards are cheap. so that shouldn't be an issue.. i purchased a 32gb CF card for $60
More time to download - True.. but get a fast CF reader
usually if your shooting raw your converting to a new file regardless. and erasing the original sounds like a sin :)


Images would take up more space on memory cards, resulting in more memory card changes during a shoot. Images would take more time to download, then time spent downsampling and converting to a new file and erasing the original. Time is money...

I wonder how much this new camera will eat into the profits of the 20,000 rig. We probably won't see it till around the same July time frame as the C primes.

Considering the zooms are $47k each.. im not sure it matters

For networking, it looks like a LAN port with the option of wireless (with on-board bluetooth) and GPS adapters.

I like the idea of colour-based focus tracking with iTR (Intelligent Tracking and Recognition).

I like this translation  "Operation of the shutter unit cleared the test for 40 million times." now thats what i call durable :D
