EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 70D a New Benchmark in ISO Performance?
« on: July 30, 2013, 03:40:22 PM »
One situation that has changed since 7D came out is FF has become more affordable again due to the 6D. So if crop is not a decisive affair because of range (birders) the 6D surely represents a great tool for a bit more than a current crop body. e.g. the 6D discounts posted by CR guy. My two cents...

With that in mind, one might expect a 7DII priced lower than the 6D...and with a reduced feature set to go along with that price. Still has to differentiate from the 70D, but fps and more MP would cover most of that.

I would think a better AF system would probably also be part of the differentiation. More FPS and better AF along with a competitive increase in MP would be the ideal differentiation to me. I don't think an integrated grip or better weather sealing or 1D X style buttons or anything like that are necessary to make an appropriate differentiation. The 19pt AF system definitely has its issues, though...and I would happily skip the 7D II if it ended up with the same 19pt system the original 7D had. It misfocuses too many times in any given sequence, roughly negating the additional 2fps lead it has over the 5D III.

It doesn't necessarily need to get the 61pt AF system, but something of the same precision, consistency, and accuracy of the 5D III's system would be a key differentiator for reach-hungry shooters looking for a companion to their FF.

before you hate on the 19pt auto focus to much which lenses are you using

still have a 3 with a PB-E2
that was my first serious setup
if they ever make a digital back for it id probably use it exclusively again
fast and built like a tank
this thread made me dig it out to listen to the shutter noise  :o)

I used Eos utility to load the lens correction data on to my 7D and now presto it works like a champ.  8)
I didn't think it woiuld make such a difference

Lenses / problems with canon 50 f1.8

I just bought it today and am having problems
all my shots look "dreamy" in a bad way
and when I tried to MFA with Focal It said the "lens not behaving as expected" and recomended I stop
Is this just a lemon or your run of the mill 50 1.8?
Also am I doing something wrong
All shots were on a tripod with my 7D

I have a 7D now and unless the 5D3 reaches the same price range i'll keep it or get the 7D2.
I guess the 15-85 would fit the bill best but I wish it was weather sealed

Lenses / efs 15-85 or ef 24-105L

both are 30% off of refurbished price and within 10 dollars of each other at canons online store.

both have great image quality
both have IS
one is lighter
the other is weather sealed(I think ?)
one has a longer reach on the aps-c censor
obiously the efs is aps-c only

So which would you pick?
