You mentioned the UI and button layout. Also you mentioned how turned off you are about the EVF. How is the build quality? As compared to the 5DIII? Is it about the same, better, worse? I have a 6D on my list for landscape shooting, but with an EF adaptor, it's something to think about.

Thanks

I think it's pronounced So-knee-kon.  :P

That's just a guess.

EOS Bodies / Re: Update on the EOS 7D Mark II Spec List
« on: August 23, 2014, 10:28:17 AM »
Hello,
first of all, I take my Pictures with 5D MKII and MK III and owner of 7 L-lenses. During the last 2 years I did an update of my Equipment for more than 15.000 € now. Two years ago I considered to change to Nikon due to the innovations they presented with e.g. D800 or D800E especially the high resolution of the sensors. This based on the fact that I sell my pictures as prints and build up a Business with stock photos. Aside the Picture itself the technical data and expected resolutions continuously rising. At that time I thought Canon will follow Nikon and Sony and also be more innovativ.

Today I´m angry about my decision. The reasons are:
- No high resolution sensors with a quality like Nikon
- Arrogance of Canon in their behaviour with their Clients
- Price policy for new II-lenses

The high resolution and the quality of Nikon and Sony shows that this is not a game and that
high resolutions doesn´t mean low quality at low light Images.

Fact is that I will check again how much I will get for my current Canon Equipment and than I will decide if
to switchover to Nikon
 
regards
Juergen

And at the same time, a Nikon\Sony user is selling their stuff so they can come to Canon.

I wonder if they are looking at MF as a way to get more pixels, as they don't seem to be able to get much more on the current sensor fab. Bigger sensor, more pixels, but again, their goes all the R&D from APS-c and 35mm DSLR's. If Canon did decide to develop a MF, would they need to develop a sensor? The current MF systems all use a universal sensor pack from 1 of the two companies that offer them? Except leica of course. OK, enough rambling..

There are more bodies on this list than I thought, but no 60D:

Dumb question. If I buy the 2x convertor for my 300L f4 IS, it will become f8. Will a 60D center focus work or only the 5d3 and 1dx?

Thjanks in advance!

I wish it was only that long... I'm married.   ;D

The only thing I can say about this camera is that it does not look like the nice expensive DSLR's. It looks like one of those old cameras that a thief won't even want to steal. That's the good thing about it...... and that's about it.

If you're not stuck on CANON, there are a lot of other excellent imaging machines out there, worth considering.

Nikon D5300 w 18-140mm if you can afford it, fast, good video, no touch screen tho but does have articulating display.
Nikon D5200 - on price reduction or kitted with extra lenses.
Nikon D5100 if you can still find them- low cost, great images

Pentax K-30 or K-50 with 18-135mm WR lens - tough and weather/spill resistant


Fast focusing mirrorless cameras:

Fuji X-A1 or X-M1 w 16-50mm lens  fits in your budget, great image quality, good features, interchangeable lens

Fuji X-E1 with 18-55mm lens, taking it up a notch

Olympus Pen E-P5 with 14-42 lens or one of the many other good micro 4/3rds camera systems

All the above cameras compete well, if not exceed in some cases, any APS-C Canon body out there.

You must not have seen the part about wanting to shoot video along with photos.

Thanks for all the info. I thought I'd let everybody know that I had decided on the Canon Teleconverter. I did save a little extra money and Purchased a new MK3 version. Since I had to save a little extra money to be able to purchase this, I just got it a couple weeks ago.

Been using it as much as possible and I think it does a great job! I do want to get a longer lens, but that will have to wait a lot longer.

Thanks for all the information and posts.
