and what do you know?

Have you considered renaming yourself as troll ?  I'm personally getting fed up of your nasty attitude and tripe quips.

Whilst I'm comfortable with second hand glass, I'm less comfortable with a second hand camera, especially one as old as the 5D - which is at least 5 years old now - the AF on the 6D is fine for me, the flash sync isn't an issue, nor is the framerate - although I must say I'm tempted with the DigitalRev option of a 5DIII ;-)

To be fair, I'm not happy with the 70-300 non L on crop - it's great at the short end, fine close in at 200mm, getting bad for longer shots at 300mm - perhaps a trade in of that too might be wise, as this lens has been left at home mostly since I got my 135L ;-)

The 600D is directly targeted at photographers like you. 

6D you mean ?  I've already got a 50mm f1.4, a non L 70-300mm and 135L, so tooled up apart from the kit FF lens

Agreed re flash, I don't use it often, but the on camera flash of the 450D isn't useful

Enjoyed your pics on flickr!

Thank you, I've about a year of pictures sat in Lightroom waiting to be processed and uploaded ;-) I'm planning on some more "me days" over the next few months, so keep watching - liking your photographic style too

However, the 6D will be offered from DigitalRev at a similar discount ?

Speaking of which, where's the catch with buying from DigitalRev other than hassle sending stuff back if it is broken ?

EOS Bodies / 450D to 6D

Given the recent announcement and the affordable price of a 6D with a 24-105mm kit, I'm starting to seriously consider the full benefits of a move from using a 450D with a 15-85mm to a 6D with the 24-105, specifically in terms of shooting in low light, depth of field and so on...    Whilst I'm sure some will shout, buy a 5D III, but seriously folks, I'm not happy to invest that level of my cash into a camera, so...  Please, given my current lens line up, consideration of keeping the 450D with the 10-22, perhaps trading my 15-85 & 18-55, what can I expect and are there any pitfalls I need to think about ?

EOS Bodies / Re: Comparing 6D with 5D3
« on: September 23, 2012, 07:05:03 AM »
I'm really warming to the 6D as a prosumer level full frame camera...  As a casual user, yes, super duper AF would be nice, but ain't essential, better low light AF to me is useful as I'm no expert at photography and occasionally have trouble, especially as I were spectacles, practically blind in my left eye and never able to manually focus.  Initial prices for a 6D & 24-105 kit is £2500, so could be down to £2200 by the new year, which is looking a good deal for me, especially if I keep my 450D, for use with my 10-22 & 70-300

Why not call it the 1D Xs for studio

I'm in the reusing the 1d name camp....   we have 1DC, 1DX, 1DM - for "Max" to allude at "medium" format quality at FF sized sensor.

I wonder if the Canon marketing people will embrace the Apple style of version numbering...   I.e. dump it and just have product ranges and call a new one just "the new Canon 1Dx" etc ?

I love my 135L on my crop but you do need lots of space - typically 3-5m gets you tight face shots, the 50mm on crop is good for head/shoulders close up, but I'm seriously considering a 85mm right now, plus a 24/28mm for tight space group shots.

I suggested this being a way forward for the 1D body a few years back...   Essentially differnet sensor units that fit into different body types to give a flexible professional system.   Different sensor size/ISO/AF performance combos, large grip style body or smaller non grip style body

Who will be first to post a piccie of this hooked on the back of a 800mm prime ?  Extra kudos for getting on the back of a 1200mm !
