Lenses / Re: Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG Sets New Benchmark for Excellence

Canon version didn't do as well...Is the D800 making the difference here?

Thank goodness someone else (and another after you) actually went and read the article, its not just the lens and unfortuantly its not as good on a canon body :(

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 100D Detailed Specs Appear

Place holder specs :-
Focus Range   9.8′ – infinity - that's got to be a mistake 9.8 feet?   They must mean inches "

So if I get this right, Canon is taking a full frame sensor, and ENLARGING the pixels on it 7.5 times, and then market it as the best ISO performer on the market? DUH!

So the pixel count will be 18MP / 7.5^2 = 0,3 MP on a FF?

Ehm, I might have completely misunderstood, but how is this technical progress?

Me too, is this just bigger pixels?

Over priced maybe but, finally here and one hopes shipping with all new lenses.

Nice, but I'm not gonna make fb for that.

Yeah...I would not get a FB page even if you told me I WAS the winner of the 6D! LOL.
Oh well.  :P

"Quid pro quo" If we like CR, CR grows, more chance of more competitions like this :)
I note from your Signature that you've a 5Dmkiii anyway, so if you do win and don't want it just let me know...

Entered and fingers crossed - very exciting.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Sigma Announces New 30mm f/1.4 for APS-C

Excellent, with the expectation of a lower cost  than their FF release last year yet still much of the quality, i really hope this may breath life into my APS-s body. for a good field of view and low light performance. Finally perhaps something worth replacing my nifty 50 with.

Counterfeits - fair point - if i'm paying Canon I want Canon.

But 3rd party batteries etc for 20% of the Canon price I get a unit that's rated higher than the Canon one and will 'sometimes' last just as long. Granted the Canon ones may perform a little better toward the end of their lives but not 4 or 5 times better.

3rd party item make photography more enjoyable, Counterfeit items pretending to be Canon are just thieves.

EOS Bodies / Re: DSLR & Lens Coming on January 15, 2013? [CR1]

Looking for an announcement - Isn't Feb usually the month for the xxxD rebel ranges - are we a month out?

Is the departure of a major UK distributor - Jessops - Making it a bad time to announce a new dSLR body?

Anyway always looking out for new sensor tech from Canon.

If you were going grey, then its quicker delivery than from non UK resellers.
This market exists as Canon wants to price differently in each country :(   

High speed flash sync AND high frame rates :-)

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: The First Canon EOS 6D Video Footage

Watching the video full screen is does not seem HD sharp is this the high ISO, poor lens, bad conversion to web video or is it really just this soft?

Just how much sales tax do you pay for that?

In the UK the EOS 60D is £700
