1Dx & 400f/2.8 II @ f/2.8

I guess it won't be long now & this thread will be somewhat defunct, everyone will be posting to the 1Dx II & 5Ds/R threads.

Still, until then, the 1Dx has been without a doubt the most satisfying piece of Camera gear I've ever used.

WONDERFUL, WONDERFUl as always.

This one with 200mm f2 IS @ f2


That's a very nice photo Dylan. I like it!

Because someone mentioned squirrel.   Also included are a few other shots with the Tamron SP 150-600mm.
That squirrel is a little bit greedy, isn't he?! ;D
Great photos

Seem to me specialist camera as can be read in the description - and it is not a secret  8)

I'm sure Canon doesn't exactly *prevent* anybody from buying it though :-) ... but: they're unusually verbose about the 5ds' position, after all they could have added a mantra like "and everybody else loving crisp and sharp images" or some other marketing yadayadayada.

That's because afaik Nikon positions their 36mp d800 line as a good as a general camera; Canon not doing so with their 5ds might indicate that they'll also jump to 30mp+ with their 5d4? After all, they're missing something in between now.
Maybe they will jump to 30mp+ on the 5d4 because they may go to 24mp on the 6dmkII. Something to hope for.

Image was taken after a pair of eagles tried to swipe this guy’s dinner. He took off with his doggie bag and went deep into the trees.

With the new T6i and T6S  and the S model looking and having a lot of the 70D features.
Do we think the 70D line is short lived? 

Why would anyone go to the 70D with the price point and features of the T6S?

Thoughts?

I just had a quick look having read this.  Should I sell my 70d and buy the 760d . . . the answer is a short "No"  :) .

Just things like the battery life, viewfinder, FPS, RAW buffer, AFMA, build quality, size tell me to stick on that one.  The 70D is clearly differentiated enough for me.

That said "Flicker Free", I don't suppose there is any chance the 70d could get it via a firmware upgrade?  I would really like to have that. Otherwise I'm still very happy.


See, that is what Canon had in mind...70D owners buying another camera for those new features.... ;D

So the MRSP prices in the Netherlands are:
- 5Ds 3549 euro
- 5DsR 3749 euro


I remember the 5D MIII was 3499 at launch and after about 10 months it was around 2900 euro
With a little faith and hope....

Eeeehhm....I admit that I do want this camera, but that "commercial" DID NOT convince me.


Well we tend to judge on quality based on evidence. There was no 100% crop detail to see on what were the results especially after sundown. ::)

EOS Bodies / Re: 6D Mark II speculation...
« on: February 05, 2015, 08:17:13 AM »

Yes! Canon would be very wise to make a Rebel sized and weight FF camera for people who just want something compact but with high image quality. I would buy it for sure. Even the 6D is much heavier and stronger than it needs to be.

This is so true. One can only dream that something like this happens in the near future...
Does anyone expect a 6D mark II to be smaller in some way?

I must say I use my 6D a lot with my 35 f/2 and 50 f/1,4 or 16-35. Bigger lenses go on my 5D MK3
But still, I hope they keep the same size for the 6D MK2 and not smaller. Not for my hands and not to mess up the balance with the lenses

I agree with your size argument. It doesnt have to be any smaller. But there are lots of weight savings to be had if they replace the metal build with something lighter. For me personally, the appeal of mirrorless lies solely in the potential weigth reduction. For comparison:

Canon 6D + 16-35 f/4L IS : 1385 grams
Sony A7R + Sony FE 16-35mm f/4 ZA OSS: 983 grams


I don't have experience with the Sony A7R + Sony FE 16-35mm f/4 ZA OSS: 983 grams
So I can't compare. I do have exprience with a Rebel - I assume this is the size smaller than 6D (which can be compared to 70d). For me, so personally, I like the 6D size also as a light travelcamera
