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 !

Go on Canon...   Loss leader pricing...  £300 for body, £400 with 22mm prime !  You can do it !

Ouch !  at that price, surely IS would be included ?

Just what many were waiting for !  I might consider at that price.

Canon 9D ?

EOS Bodies / Re: Lower Price Full Frame Camera [CR1]

I'm not so sure Canon (or Nikon) will be that concerned about the reletive price vs spec of their current entry level full frame cameras, in the real world, someone buying a 5DIII or D800 will generally already have a collection of lenses, typically a 70-200/70-300mm zoom, perhaps a couple of primes, so would need to chop in £1000's of investment to actually change for one generation...  what happens next generation, ewe, swap back and trade £1000's of Nikon glass....   

Once you commit to a brand with a large established lens lineup, you would have to a really good reason to swap brands, i.e. inherit some lenses, merge companies, start working for a firm that uses a different brand...   or, be barking mad losing £100's in trade in's

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 40 f/2.8 Pancake
« on: June 06, 2012, 04:27:51 PM »
Starting to look like f2.8 is going to be the standard minimum for non L primes.... 

This could mean two things, Canon pushing people into buying top end primes for anything less, or alternatively realignment of the ranges to have f2.8 "cheap" primes, entry level L primes and moving the current top range primes up the price list.

EOS Bodies / Re: New Full Frame Camera in Testing [CR1]
« on: June 06, 2012, 12:43:42 PM »
Testing a new sensor in a 1Dx body doesn't necessarily mean that the final product would be 1Dx sized.  It might just have a tad more space inside to bodge together a working prototype, with larger pre production test chips and circuits.

My money is still on a cheap cripled FF 9D sitting at the same price as a 7D, with a studio big Mpx 1D version...  I.e. evolve the 1D range from 2 previous models to 3 new models to suit each niche...  Again, I wouldn't be suprised at a mega APS-C 1D model in the near future either.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Camera Bag Recommendations
« on: May 30, 2012, 02:04:52 PM »
Plus one for the Think Tank Retrospective range, they do bags and also complimentary lens bags.  I'm really pleased with mine, much nicer and useful than my old LowePro SlingPro, but I also have a large LowePro bag to store all my kit.

Lenses / Re: Recommendation for a small budget?
« on: May 28, 2012, 02:58:04 PM »
You have the general use range covered, so I'd go for a couple of cheap primes, perhaps a 28mm f1.8 which would be a good walkabout prime on a crop, plus an 85mm f1.8, which would be a great portrait choice.  The 10-22mm is a bit niche to be honest, but you won't tire of bokah !  The 50mm f1.4 is nice too, but I find it a tad too long indoors and not quite long enough outside :-/

Speaking hypothetically, if a smaller sensor was used with a EF mount, couldn't the distance between the lens mount and sensor be reduced ?

40mm on a 2x crop would be 80mm...  I'm not expecting the mirrorless to be anything more than APS-C, it is just as likely to be the same size as a 4/3rds sensor, EF-M ?  (micro) in a way of beating Nikon on sensor size (Nikon 1), but not suffering a problem of having to build masses of new lenses, as it would be EF or EF-S comparable.

So, could we also expect a cheap 12mm and 24mm pancake too ?, giving 24mm and 48mm focal lengths ?

255
Although I see the mirrorless APS-C eating up the entry level DSLR's like the xxxxD and xxxD, but still see a market for the intermediate level cameras from the xxD upwards, furthermore, I still think that we may still see a APS-C "1D" model, designed for even faster frame rates and reach.  EF-S lenses will undoubtably sell in big numbers, probably mostly the 55-250mm as the 18-55mm comes with the majority of Canon DSLR sale, I'm still staggered Canon don't have a set of budget EF-S primes and hope to see some in the future under the new batch of IS non L primes that are starting to appear (thinking the new 24/28mm).
