EOS Bodies / Re: Purchase 5DIII now, or wait for 5DIV?
« on: January 24, 2015, 04:46:12 AM »
You're talking about a camera (5D4) that is not even at the horizon although some talk about a potential announcement in 2015.

Canons Camera Division Executive  Masaya Maeda has twice confirmed that a new  high megapixel camera is coming soon. He mentioned it the first time back in SEP 2014.

DEC 14, 2014 he said: "We are thinking of a high pixel count cameras for users who want high resolution images, and it will come out soon. It will retain pixel quality while increasing pixel count.

No one here knows. So why ask?

Why answer, when you are not following the announcements from Canon?

Even if we do not know exactly what this camera will look like it would be rushing it to buy a Canon camera right now unless you absolutely need it or can exclude that you would be interested in Canon's soon-to-come-according-to-Canon-mangement DSLR.

This new DSLR will hopefully at least catch up with the substantial advances that Nikon has made since the 5DIII came out. And why should we not expect Canons newest DSLR will be better than anything Nikon has out there already?

If nothing else a new release will certainly lower Canon 5DIII prices even more.

Time from presentation to market is only a few weeks for new Canon DSLRs, so with any luck the new camera will hit stores in April if launched at the same photo show as the 5DIII was 3 years ago (guessing here).

Yes that .

Also, the old adage works, good things come to those who wait.

Technology almost always gets better.... so does IQ

Prices on current gear (excluding exceptions) always goes down.

So it makes sense to wait..... unless:

There is a definite need with a financial Impact. At the end of the day this decision will be driven by your patience, and if you are looking for confirmation then here is it from me:

Wait for the 5d4 or even a year longer for the 6D2.

As much as I enjoy exploring the latest from Neuro[resepct] and others on this site, I feel you guys need to take some chill pills ;D,it is after all only photography and not life saving surgery,just out of intensive care which gives a different perspective on things,keep on with entertaining us with your posts but possibly a little less rancour 8)

+1:  It's not a lot of fun watching a pee contest that does not want to stop, people need to know when to take a back seat sometimes. People may disagree with Dilbert's position, his base observations that Canon need to improve one area is not without merit, it's when he gets too far and forgets the strengths of the Canon system that it starts to get a bit of a drab, granted, the fact that respected members of our forum try their best to shame him relentlessly, does not garner a positive response from him either, what surprises me is his resolve to stay civil despite all the hate directed. Guys, please lets take it a notch down so that the rest of us 500 odd people can enjoy discussing rumors!

And  I humbly leave you all with this thought: In a pee contest, neither the loser, nor the winner come out clean...

I bought this lens, and after extensively comparing it to my Canon 24-70 f2.8, I sold the Canon. This is an outstanding lens.

Same here, I love it too.

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Deal: Canon EOS-1D X Body $4199

At that price, if I didn't have one, I'd get one!

No matter what Canon have in pipeline, this is a lot of camera for the money and a 1DX-II will cost a lot more.

+1....very temping to pull trigger on 2nd 1DX.

Please don't.... you already have one.... what's coming is worth the wait I suspect :-)

Perhaps they are referring to the ver i of the 400 f2.8 and not the ii. Is that still available?

Courtyard and reflections

Thanks Candyman and everyone.

Tiffen 10 stop and the surreal hue it imparts...

Lenses / Re: Canon EF-S 55-25mm IS STM vs EF 200mm 2.8L II
« on: January 12, 2015, 12:20:52 AM »
Hi MJ:  What about other options? The Bokeh of the 55-250 is not legendary... if eventually you want to go full frame, you are better off investing in EF lenses. Having 2 L lenses that are F2.8 200mm seems like a bit of waste. Just throw a black cover on the 70-200, if it bothers you much.

If I were you, I'd seriously consider the 135 f/2 it can take TC's, and by itself it is great for low light concerts/ sports. It has very fast AF and it's Bokeh is as good as any great lens out there. It is light and inconspicuous. I will admit it is close in length to the 100m macro, but it is a stop faster, 35mm longer and will give you more dreamy blur, and costs not a whole lot.

A try at long Exposure

Nicely done K-amps.

Thanks Click. The Sigma 12-24mm II is a very interesting lens, despite it's shortcomings.

If Canon Changed Sensor tech in the 7d2, then expect only minor bump in DR/IQ/Noise for any 5D variant. Don't get your hopes high... Stay close to reality.   :-X

I hope Canon can change the Sensor processing and RAW file algorithms to 18 or 20 bit....

I will probably choose the high MP, low FPS, less AF point model since I am primarily Marco/landscape/portraits. I do not expect them to price it above $4k given that the D810 is out there.

I do hope they extend the spread of the AF points, it's relatively clumped in the 5D3, although still quite usable.
