So far off, barely even worth thinking about it. its not even july 14. and Canons 2015 is 2017 in the real world.

Why dont we see that they do with the next rebel...sure to be cut down in every way possible to avoid encroach the 70d.

Speedlites, Printers, Accessories / Re: Third-pary Grip. Safe?

third party grips ROCK. Try to stick to newer/mieike. the first on ei eve bought im at three now- was so well made i felt like i robbed canon.

Since these grips use cheaper rubber and glue, the hotter the environment, the less time these will last. I will need to replace my old t2i grip as its smoothed out and began to peel off.

Also, if its for a 70d/full frame camera, sometimes the camera doesnt properly ready the battery status. no big deal.

EOS-M / Re: Do you know affordable high capacity batteries for eos m?

Look for the opteka batteries. they are like 12 bucks a pop, buy 3. The original battery is garbage, i barely every use it.

Super good advice from klickflip

i would like to be professional as well- and getting closer- but i know i have a LOT to learn. Dont feel bad about needing to upgrade your skills- think about how awesome it will be when you get to that point. Graduation day.

Let that be your motivation.

My 2c, from someone who understands how you feel.

Cheers, keep shooting

For all you guys having issues- send it in to canon. I sent it without the body, they fixed it up real good. Now its accurate on AMF of ZERO. Yup, no adjustment necessary, on a 6d that originally had loads of Af issues. It is fantastic, worked great for 2.5 weeks in japan.

with the fixed 50 w/hood on a gripped 6d, this is now my most reliable shooting lens. makes my 24-105 look pretty bad now, though i suspect that one needs to go back for a tuning.

Lenses / Re: EF-S 10-18mm - a few early photos on SL1 & Sony a6000

According the the digital pictures image quality post, this lens is...good only if you dont want to pay for the 10-22, and lose a fair amount of zoom capacity.

Sharpness is pretty much the same as the old bird. corners are smushy. Ive used the 10-22 on a 7d, t2i, and an eos m...there's only so much sharpness you can expect of of that lens. So if this is the same, its pretty pointless.

at this point since i mostly use my 10-22 on an M, id gamble on getting a 11-22 EFM. I f the image qulity is thta much better (its not listed on TDP) , then it woudl be worth it.  I think i saw it in japan for about 550 or so.

6.3?


that sucks...sounds like design compromise for the size.

Lenses / Re: 70-200 f/2.8L IS II underwhelming

Sounds like there is a LOT wrong going on with your setup.

This is an exceptional lens, and its pretty bizarre to hear it being compared to that sigma.

Send it and the body together over to CPS and let them optimize for you. My 6d was barely usable until i did that before a very important trip.

EOS Bodies / Re: 50d just died, trip in a week, what should I do?
« on: June 06, 2014, 11:59:01 AM »
Get a 70d.

I just came back from japan with a 6d in tow, forgot my eos m. Files look great but the AF...can frustrate.

add the articulating screen, and better iso than rebel series, its pure win. and its on 'sale' right now.

EOS Bodies / Re: Reports of EOS 7D Reaching End of Life [CR2]
« on: June 04, 2014, 12:23:31 PM »
A 7d without the crappy sensor & Af issues...pure win. I miss that camera body.

70d is nice but took months of testing and CPS to get the AF it to a usable state.  70 is awesome but that plasticy body is not.

12
Yup. Too bad it won't auto focus good enough to hit the broad side of a galaxy ;D

Must wait for the 85...
   


Have you tried canons 24 1/4? That is the worst focusing lens ive ever seen in my life. Shouldnt be hard to beat it at all. The abysmal focus was even mentioned on the review on this site, which i noticed only after i rented it. It was pathetic.

With Af like that, it might as well be manual

13
Focus and crop...sounds like foolishness.

6D's AF capabilities and focus points are just plain sad for today's standards for a camera worth that much money and a FF label. Some people defend it by saying "it can take sports photos too!". Sure it can, I did it with my 550D also.

Agreed.  I took sports photos with no AF at all, and I had to advance the film by hand between each frame.  But the fact is the Rebel T4i/650D has an overall better AF system than the 6D - which, as you say, is just plain sad.

THIS.

15
Same family, but No, No, No they are not the same sensor.

Ill say it until the cows come home- the t2i takes better images at every iso than the 7d, and produces spectacular images  Sometimes i look at those files and wonder if it was worth it to go full frame, its that good. (take it from a pixel peeper)

7d images...argh, Im not going to go there...
