EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 7D Mark II Spec List Surfaces [CR1]
« on: October 27, 2013, 11:38:56 AM »
Given that this is a CR1, change of specs is likely


I would spent this amount of money on a 7D MKII with these specs.
I hope card slot will remain CF. Can we have another CF cardslot please? I guess that is only for the 1Dx
And, I will go for the 61-points AF, high grade weathersealing - just don't know how that goes with WiFi
And I do like the 10-12 fps. The 6fps on my 5D MKIII is great but here and there short of


And, most of all I like the better ISO performance. Yes, 2 stops improvement compared to the 7D would be great. However I suspect Canon may be conservative on this one.

Much heavier. 82 mm filter size. The same old same old Sigma inconsistent AF.
Oh my God! ... the lens isn't even out yet but people already know it has "inconsistent AF" and that too from just knowing that it is "much heavier" and that it has "82mm filter size" ::)
The past problems with inconsistent AF caused a lot of damage on the Sigma products that even today - where AF improved - people don't choose Sigma simply because of their experience in the past. That is something Sigma is, or should work on to improve. I dd not have AF problems with my Sigma 50 f/1.4 when I owned the lens.

I wouldn't be surprised if it is real.
Sigma is moving in popular segments of Canon

I sure use availble posibilities (crop, exposure compensation, colorimprovement etc) to improve my photos. I don't use photoshop to alter image subjects (add and remove etc)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Is ff metering more aggressive than crop?
« on: October 08, 2013, 12:43:05 AM »
The 6d doesn't seem to put that much weight into preventing blown highlights, maybe it's a descendant of the "pro" 5d3 and is for people who should know what they're doing.

I'm not sure the logic holds.  Lots of people (including me) have observed that the 1D X (and other 1-series bodies), evaluative metering is 1/2-stop or so darker than other bodies.


True for my 5D MKIII. I noticed it last year when I bought it next to my 7D and compared it with the 7D

105mm is the 'total' optical length of the lens (physical length plus backfocus distance), not a 35-105 zoom.

Got it. Thanks

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Canon USA Mail-in Rebates
« on: September 30, 2013, 02:19:27 AM »
What a f'ing crock of sh't this is.

If you look at the lens price for some of these lenses, there was a jump in price around the start of September and now at the start of October, rebates are announced that take the price back to the level of the start of September.

Who's playing games here?
The stores or Canon or both of them?

F' them all.


That's going on for years. Also in Europe. After Christmas (around end of January) they slowly start to raise prices. So at the next Christmas they make it look like they offer you the once in a lifetime discount ... ::)
They just forget that many people these days keep following price development. And don't have a short memory 8)

Lenses / Re: Photozone comparison of Canon 35L vs. Sigma 35mm F/1.4 'Art'

For the record, I do not suffer from sharpness syndrome, in which the sharpest lens is deemed 'the best'.  So I encourage folks to read the whole reviews...


...


I am with you.
And as always it depends for everyone on the specific combination of their camera and their lens that is showing performance characteristics that will satisfy or not.
The sigma has very strong cards

... I just ordered a 16-35L f/2.8 II and a 70-200 f/2.8 II ... What to do of this addiction?

Add 300mm or 400mm f2.8 IS II will cure it ;D

Congrats on your toys
Just bought my 300mm f/2.8 IS II - hope I'm cured of my Canon, L, and II, and III addictions 8) .
I am in stage IV

No doubt, that the 24-70 2.8 II is the best lens until today.

But the new IS version nearly delivers the image quality of the version II and has all the advantages of an IS lens. I am sure, that a lot of photographers are willing to buy the IS version if the lens hits the market. The version II was my favorite standard zoom for a long time. Now it´s the IS preproduction 24-70 lens.

You can all like the rays from the version II. I don´t like the rays and I don´t like the plastic body of the lens.   


Would that be a Canon marketing proposition? A little less IQ than the 24-70 MKII? Will its pricing therefor be more in the level of the Tamron?
