An 11-24 F/4.0 would be nice. Bulb lens? And I wonder, what third party brands would do with that. A Sigma 11-24, about the same quality at less $$$? I'm almost in ;-)

What about an ultrawide for FF with IS. Come on, now!


About 16-35 f2.8 IS or 16-35 f4 IS...same IQ as Nik 14-24 or better  ::)

A 14-24 or 12-24 for FF would be very welcome! An F/3.5 F/4.0 would do for nightscapes at high ISOs.

Well, this is as crazy as it gets...
"Is Amazon attempting to patent an age old photography lighting technique? A recently published patent seems to suggest that, and it’s getting some photographers up in arms. Multiple readers have sent us (rather angry and bewildered) tips about the patent, which was first reported on by Shoot the Centerfold. The document itself was published on March 18, 2014, is titled “Studio Arrangement,” and features the diagram above showing a lighting setup."

I don't need tons of megapixels, but if I can't take a picture in complete darkness and recover 24 stops of DR in post this will be a total fail.  Its 2014 Canon! 


High ISO is often portrayed - even if only jokingly - like that, but a lot of us wildlife folks (outside of the sunny tropics) could make good use of clean shots in the 12800-25600 range, easily.

I'll second that, although I am not into birding. Give me a clean ISO 25k and I am a happy camper ;-) Low light is my passion! But as jrista said: lower pixel count is the base for better high ISOs. So hopefully they keep at least to the current 22.3 MP if not I guess we're in the same boat again despite new sensor tech. Then a 6D in my case looks much more attractive in a next cycle, as long as they keep the same MP count...Wouldn't consider it as a downgrade, as I am only looking for best and affordable low light/high ISO IQ.

Well, my 5D3 still rocks. My faint guess with this new rumor is: Nikon somehow has a fairer strategy. They have an affordable FF (D600, here I'd prefer the 6D at 20 MP), an affordable high MP FF (D800, although there is no MRAW mode!) and a lower priced (in comparison to the 2 years old 1Dx) 16MP flagship D4s. So, it will look a bit awkwarded to me, if they ask an extra premium for more MPs. Hope they get their sensor tech resolved with this new babe. That is the only point of interest for me. And if Canon does so, there is hoping that the pixel count of the allrounder 5Ds will remain about the same, plus faster processors and improved sensor tech. I would really like to see improved ISO 51k (RAW) somewhere near the ISO 20k-25k of my current cam, IQ wise. What I've seen in relation to RAW IQ from a friend of mine testing his new D4s is quite nice. ISO 102400 and even 204800 are a nice alternative and for b/w you even dare to shootISO 409600.

EOS Bodies / Canon pricing e.g. 1Dx vs D4s

Hi, maybe it's an odd question to some of you. Just observed, that retail shops in Switzerland sell the 1Dx at CHF 6760 while the new Nikon D4s is at CHF 6125 body only. Do you see a similar tendency in your parts of the world and what is the reason to sell the at least 2 years old flagship cam at this price? Just curious, I am a happy 5D3 shooter...;-)

A friend of mine and early adopter of the D4s dropped me this link

Maybe the appearance of a 16-35 F/4 patent is a hint for a later 12-24 F/2.8 which would complement and complete the 24-70, 70-200 line up. Hope they'll go for it.

Here's one from Monday morning...Snowfall in March. I made the photograph on my terrace.

I like your shot Pedro. Very artistic.

Thank you so much, Click. Regards.

EOS Bodies / Re: Is Dual Pixel Tech Coming to the EOS 5D Mark III?
« on: March 01, 2014, 07:53:50 AM »
Yeah I couldn't possible see how they could miss it. I think the 5D3 sensor is too old.


I think that it is pretty safe to say that DPAF will be in the 5D Mark IV. Almost everything else about the sensor will remain the same %-)

As far as MP count goes, yes. But I do hope that there is technical improvement in sensor tech aside of dual pixel AF.

I'd rather send it in to Canon for a sensor swap with the 1Dx ;-) But no chance in a million, that I'd entrust a 3.5k CHF device to someone to fiddle with its interior parts...

Canon General / Re: Off Brand: Nikon Announces the D4S

Well, I am looking forward to Canon's improvement in high ISO IQ in the next 6 to 7 years. Hoping that it pays off well for a next 5D allrounder cam. A 5DV in my case...

Wish they reduced pixel count back to 20 MP like the 6D in their next 5D bodies.

As I am neither a pro nor do have the budget for 1Dx ish bodies.

Alernate Track: If Canon keep the MPs at 20 for their next 6D outings I could swap my 5D for one of these, as I don't do sports, mostly low light without fast movement (nightscapes).

I'd like to see a Canon FF body with higly usable "native" ISO 51k or even 102k in the 5D and 6D segment within the next 7 years. But anyway, as I've learned by experts here, even 1/2 to 1 stop of improvement in RAW will be a great achievement. We'll see. The 409600k look intriguing to me... I just dare to think what it looks like 7 years from now... Canon, do you read me? ;-)
