They intend to make a splash when they announce it with a new body.

We have clean ISO3200 with great dynamic range across the board with all DSLR's released in the last 3 years.

If you can't get a great capture with any of the existing technology you shouldn't be shooting.

I'll use the best complete system that helps me get the shot I need. I have no loyalty but Canon suits me for their pragmatic approach.

I'd like a fully functioning 1DX in a smaller body. That's what I'd buy.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon to Continue Using Canon Sensors in DSLRs

I can't see it either because of Dual Pixel AF.

However, I would like to see something as I'm sniffing around the D750. Something which I never thought would happen. Not to replace my Canon kit, more to accompany it for bad lighting situations.

Because a bit like Canon not being loyal to any manufacturer, neither am I.

I use Hasselblad, Canon and Sigma DP cameras.

I believe the 5D4 will be the camera that stops me getting another 1 series body.

I don't care how many megapixels it has, it's the quality of those pixels.

If Canon made a camera that was 18mp and totally clean ISO up to 51200 I'd pay 10k for that in a heartbeat.

I like the thought of improved sensors for my cameras yet I find exposing correctly in the first place helps a lot.

What I would like though is a much more intelligent metering system that doesn't use a grey average to calculate exposure.

Canon General / Re: Another Canon Medium Format Mention

One thing Canon would lead on is the flash system. Medium format ETTL flash solutions mostly suck. As a H4D50 user te ETTL solution for that camera is clumsy. I never got on with it.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Doing Market Research on Medium Format?

Medium format is the new full frame.

If not now in 3-5 years. It's another market to make money from and I fully expect it to be pushed to all hell.

If canon get's into bed with some pre existing lenses it's a done deal.

I love how it gets so technical on here and numbers get thrown about.

Yet we shoot love and emotions.

Lenses / Re: How many years before we see a 50L II
« on: July 28, 2014, 03:50:30 AM »
There are issues with the 50L. I've had two.

In each case unless shooting wide open there is focus drift which is noticeable between 1.4 and 2.0.

When I got the Sigma there was a higher number of in focus shots than not, the images are sharper and I see none of the 'ugly bokeh' that I've been told about. The lens performs better in the outer points in AI servo mode than the 1.2L does as well.

It's worth the upgrade and I'm someone that likes to stay brand loyal. But the new 50 from Sigma is stunning.

It handles flare better than the L, it has almost zero CA and fringing wide open. For people to say the 1.2 is better either hasn't used the Sigma, had a bad copy or well, whatever.

When Canon releases a new version of the 50L I'll be jumping back to that, because when it does appear it should be better still (revised coatings, lessons learned from the old design and closed loop AF).

Until then, the Sigma 50 Art is the lens to get.

EOS Bodies / Re: High Megapixel EOS on the Way as Mentioned by Canon

I'd like a 35mm sensor with bigger pixels rather than more of them.

Out of 21 million pixels on the sensor 924 are hot.

It is a 6 year old cam. I can't see though how it would effect an image. That's a relatively tiny number of pixels.
