EOS Bodies / Re: Another Spec List for the Entry Level Full Frame EOS
« on: July 25, 2012, 09:30:59 AM »
If its announced in PhotoKina then i hope stock is ready for just after Christmas.
News on Dynamic range seems light though - and canon does not seem to do so well there.

Why would canon reuse an old part number?

Maybe there is a big mega pixel camera coming out and it needs a super resolving lens to make it worthwhile.

Ouch $849.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon's Next Full Frame Camera [CR2]

With that extra ISO and the pop up flash, this could be my one camera does all upgrade from the 60D.
As long as its got good results up to 3200.
Is this my new hobbyist studio/events body. If so i'll take a 17-40mm lens too please.

With most of the recent lenses having a video angle - is this one just for SLR use? or is Apodization needed for a video related performance issue?

EOS Bodies / Re: New Product Announcement Invites for July 23, 2012

Good - lets get another one out the way so that the Low cost FF rumours can start again.
The 650D looks to rock and is pushing the 60D and the 7D out to pasture - there are lots of great new SLR's to come.

Lenses / Re: A New EF 50 f/1.8 IS? [CR1]
« on: July 09, 2012, 04:09:23 AM »
Remember the vast majority of cameras Canon now sells are APS-C, so 50mm is the new 80mm and IS is definitely helpful under some situations at that focal length.

And if a smaller sensor is in a future mirrorless camera then that 80mm could be 105mm??
Canon have only recently been building lenses for video and mirrorless that also fit on EF mounts.

Is this a way of clearing old stock, isn't the MK3 able to way out perform those lenses?

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Successors [CR1]
« on: June 29, 2012, 04:43:20 AM »
We kinda hope the 70D would have a new sensor - that 18M one is getting worn out now it's in so many current bodies.
If it does and the specs converg towards the 7D then that leaves less space for a 7Dmk2.
So my hope is for a 6D which is the low cost FF prosumer answer.

Still a tough decision - this might be one to rent for a trial.

EOS Bodies / Re: Announcement Day July 24, 2012? [CR2]
« on: June 22, 2012, 10:00:31 AM »
The lenses will surly be new ones to go with the mirroless system if that's what it is so, a pancake, a short zoom and a longer zoom would match others.
So much to speculate on as its a new line - what sensor size is my first question?

I'm a 60 owner for just over a year now and love it. I don't do much action shooting with the subject running towards me, but i do do some dance and people shots see here:  http://www.ephotozine.com/user/jackalltog-97593

Personally i think its great and will be big step up from where you are, but you will have to learn how to use a SLR to get the best out of it.
Also note that a big bulky SLR can really get in the way on family outings and may mean you actually get less shots.  Recent point and shoot camera's are also very good options for discrete or family shots.

EOS Bodies / Re: 4 More DSLRs Coming in 2012? [CR2]

I would like to see Canon actually deliver products they have already announced before announcing more.   The typical amount of time between announcement and availability of products has become a joke.  This is mainly true for their "pro-level" gear.
With a decent sensor and processor in most bodies, perhaps one day its just a software upgrade away.  Or even a PAYG model where you only pay for the features and shots you use?

I'd love this CR2 rumour to be true, i'd love to buy a FF camera once the initial release price drops a bit.

Lenses / Re: The Shorty Forty MTF Chart Comparison
« on: June 11, 2012, 07:49:09 AM »
Its quoted at £229.00 in the UK - £199 in the US.
As a straight conversion this should be £128.

That extra £100 is the difference between me buying it and not buying it.

It seems as if Canon consistently wants the UK to pay more for their lenses.
I love the canon product designers, but hate their marketing department.
