Hell hath no fury like an EF-S lens scorned
Nikon Went after the Medium format with the d800. If it will succeed, Only time will tell, but they went for it.
Canon should go after the Leica market with its mirrorless design. Just give me a FF or APS-H sensor in a small, lightweight body and keeping the price sub 2000$, and it will fly off the shelves.
Canon needs to be more brave, like in the original 1Ds days.
I have a 5D Mark II, and a 5D Mark III.... but 90% of my portrait work is actually with film. For a year now.
Let's just say this:
I scanned my own film = 1/10 for happiness of tones and range/colors, etc. 3/10 happy with resolution.
I send it to a local lab that I prefer = 7/10 happy with tones and range/colors, etc. 5/10 happy with resolution.
I send it to a pro lab in the USA (I'm in Canada) = 11/10 happy with tones and such, 10/10 happy with resolution.
The thing is, there are three major labs in the USA that (well there are many more than three, many more) but there are three in the USA that are extremely popular, and people from around the world actually send them film. Myself included. These are (Richard Photo Lab, Pro Photo Irvine and Indie Film Lab, I personally use Indie Film Lab).
These labs will bring out every last ounce of quality and tones/depth from your film photos. The difference is literally MASSIVE.
I'm tired of shooting my film and knowing that there is so much beauty locked inside the film, and knowing that it's a pain in the ass to get it out of there myself. So.... off to the pro labs it goes. Results = better than any editing I can do on my digital. End of story.
Medium Format to me is a nice middle ground.
