A non IS EF 50mm f/1.8 STM doesn't make sense to me the 40 doesn't have it but that's a pancake

6DII would sell like hotcakes=Rebel T6s with full frame for $1500 plus the ability to use EFS lens (crop mode).
I see the combined needs of all photographer users still as a comparatively small subset of the full PS gamut.
Looks great to me, a slimmed down 1DX... fantastic! As for the 18mp sensor... i think this is just the 1dX sensor, and i would guess it would change for the retail... I think it will stick around the 20-23MP range with increased ISo and DR.
This looks perfect for me! The 5Ds for high MP, the 5Dx for the general and a 5Dc for the more video orientated!
This is all very exciting.... Fingers crossed that this prototype is not too far off the mark!
Price wise, i think it will be the same as the 5Ds/sr cameras. ~3600 USD.
Here's a couple of oldies: these were taken on Crib Goch, North Wales in March 1982 with a Nikon FM and (I'm guessing) a 24mm f/2.8 Nikkor. Film was Kodachrome 64.Great facial expression on Crib Goch.
The first picture is taken as we were traversing the knife-edge arete, and the second picture, which became known as "The Foot", was taken by me looking down at my foot with the 24 mil lens to show that it really does come to a knife edge. Just poking into the left hand side of the picture you can see Glaslyn, which is 1000 feet below.
Glaslyn is 2000 feet above sea level and Crib Goch is 3,000. Bit of historical trivia: in Welsh folklore Glaslyn is where King Arthur ordered one of his Knights of the Round Table to throw Excalibur.
Yep, this guy pretty well crawled the whole way on his hands and knees, and it's nearly a mile long ! I still tease him about it 33 years on ! Got some even better facial expressions in other shots but need to scan the trannies.
Still available on Amazon...
Adding to the above, I had this lens on a 450D, was really impressed with it, had some amazing photos. Only sold it on after I upgraded to full frame - I'd love a FF version as good as this, 24-135mm f4 please
Hard to tell but I take Canon's statement at face value and put an asterisk behind it.
Interview with a Canon video rep from Spain describing product strategy management meetings that Canon held in their camera division regarding video:
Thought I read in one of the early reviews that the new design is a limiting factor for fps in the new 5Ds ?
If so I hope it's not in the 5 div
Since it was first used in the 7D MK II, I'd give that review a pretty low grade.
