EOS Bodies / Re: Downgrade to crop
« on: December 03, 2012, 11:08:38 AM »
IQ/Noise. This is the biggest issue. But living with 8.5MP for 7 years showed me, that the quality of an Image is not measured in ISO, Noise or dynamic range.
Sure when lighting is right, technology doesn't matter. But outside of the studio it rarely is right :)

Having said this, I think neither noise nor IQ really differs between crop and FF, you basically just gain about 2 stops. Even DOF would be more shallow when shot with an APS-C and the 50mm 1.2 than in most FF-shots. In the end it's rather about which lenses one uses, than about sensor size.

As for the smaller viewfinder: This is really a plus for the FF's. But it doesn't have to be that small, the 7d viewfinder is only 10% smaller than FF viewfinders.

EOS Bodies / Re: 60D $300 Price drop?

Amazon Germany offers the 60d for 750 EUR (Canon offers also an additional 50 EUR cashback). Amazon marks the 60d as a disontinued item, unlike the 7d - which keeps me thinking if we'll see a 700d/70d before the 7d successor...

That's why I invested only in FF lenses.   I only have the "kit" lenses for 500D which I intend to pass on to my wife after going FF.
That was good thinking. Even if I'll stick to APS-C, in the future I'll only buy EF-lenses.

The apparent idea of combining all the aps-c cameras, where all pros would have to move to ff, and soccer moms would get 20mp, 10fps, and a pro body and not to mention some crappy ef-s zoom — not clear what "combining" you're talking about; Canon currently offers eleven dslr's so if pros and amateurs can't find a suitable model, they must search elsewhere.
OK, so I must search elsewhere and I also must search for new lenses :(

Problem is: I invested in EF-S lenses, and I need an upgrade from my 400D - but I'm not willing to pay the money for an APS-C that could get me a 5D MK II. So, a successor to the 60d would be appreciated, at least a little information from Canon what there will offer next year, so I can decide if I'll go FF or change to Nikon.

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 6D launch and effect on 5D MkII & MKIII
« on: November 29, 2012, 04:17:07 PM »
The two things that the 6D is lacking that I think are important to a amateur/prosumer photographer are a second memory card slot and a pop-up flash.  I just purchased a Nikon D600 for my father, rather than the 6D, because the D600 had the second memory card slot and a pop-up flash.
I consider this rather as a feature: it saves weight and allows a more compact camera design. I prefer to shoot with a remote flash or with lower stop/higher ISO.

And as for the thread-topic: the 5ds don't have build-in-flash either.
