I voted f2.0 with IS (head) but have been hoping for 1.4 with IS for a loooong time (heart)

If so I won't even wait for the reviews, I'll pre-order one on day 1.  I'd prefer a 50/1.4 IS, but would be happy with a f/1.8.

+1000000000000000000000 !

Thought I'd add my effort of this much photographed old lady.

This is what I'd like to see from Canon's upgrades:

6D Mark-II - Casual/Landscape/Travel (Target price $2,200)
High Resolution DPAF CMOS sensor
Maximum Resolution: 39.4 Megapixels (7692 x 5124)
You have a fertile imagination ...

He was being polite about imagination.

Now that was funny  ;D

According to Kenrockwell, which is the most reliable source and famous website for evaluating the camera and lens posted a live photo of Canon 5DS, it’s identical to pictures leaked on the Internet. Ken – the site owner said he had hand on model mock up of the Canon 5DS and brought into the studio to shoot with the 100mm F / 2 lens. In addition, Ken also revealed the price of the Canon 5DS will be $ 3800, approximately 2,35968 rupees. Meanwhile Canon 5DS R version will cost $ 4300, approximately 2,67016 rupees

Glad ol' Kenny boy agrees with me then!
No sure where that leaves my street cred though!!!  :o  ;D ;D ;D

My guess, £3800 so that would be..... Eeeah with current exchange rate about $3800   ::)

It should shoot 4K video (even though it would have 42 million wasted pixels since 4K is only 8 mp).

that's not how it works

He'll be upset about that  ;D

on a personal level, i simply have no interest upgrading every 2-3 years for anything. not my cameras, not my lenses, not my computer, or my software, or even my phone. i'm sick of all of it to be honest....i'm upgrade fatigued. i have a few spots that i still feel will significantly benefit from an upgrade but after i take care of those i intend to stretch that investment well past the 5+ year mark for cameras, phone and computer and 10+ years for lenses.

You and me both! especially phones the upgrade cycle on these things are simply ridiculous. Remember the 10 year F1 promise? DSLR tech has got to that point, shareholders haven't.

I don't really need anything more than the 5DIII, but I'm going to start saving in case this has Sony-like DR.  Instead of getting a new release 2-3 years after the release, this might just be one I get quickly.

My hopes:

24-28 Mp
4k video
Sony-like DR at base ISO (no banding etc...)

That would definitely be enough to get be buying quickly.  Even with 22Mp and no 4k I'd jump on it.

that would be nice (other than short on reach a bit) and in another 3-4 years merge this with the 50MP and then wow!!

+1 to both
Especially happy with 24 and no 4k if that is what would keep the price to the 5D3's opening price.

The doubt I have and what will be fascinating to find out about is what the 5Ds brings to the table in crop mode though. If in crop mode it gives 8fps and image quality (not size obviously) the same as the 5DIV then that makes it a very attractive proposition.
ISO 6400 is the kicker though but.... can't wait for someone to test letting it under expose and lift in post to the equal ISO of a 5D3, say at 12800 if it turns out to be the same then the 5Ds becomes an amazing fit, for me that is  ;D

Either way exciting times!

EOS Bodies / Re: POLL: How many mp do you want anyway?

Is Canon being driven into releasing a high-mp camera by Sonikon trolls, or is there an actual demand for more resolution even beyond what the competition delivers?

personally I really have no need for any more that 24 but I'd like to think that the drivers for Canon are a little more than intertwat trolls!
I'm sure that they are talking (and listening) to pros and the new 5Ds/r will be superb. For me the most exciting thing about the announcement is where this positions the 5DIV

Looking forward to seeing the actual full specs to see if my glass is half full or half empty!

Really like the idea of crop modes (assuming full RAW) but if the top ISO is only 6400 in crop mode, and how could it not be, that would be a half empty.

At the moment my pennies are still going towards a 5DIV

Thanks for posting the link, quite an entertaining watch. I usually find presenters on youtube stuff like this mostly very irritating, I like his 'light' but informative style.

Maybe I'm in the minority here but I think Canon should call the new high MP full frame the 'EOS 3'.  Forget about 5DS....just go with EOS 3.  The film version hasn't been made since 2007 and the 'D' moniker is pointless as everyone already knows it's a digital camera.

and what about a FILM camera..?    I'd use it professionally along with my other cameras

Just call it a Canon EOS 3D, anyone who is in the market for one will know it's a model number not a stereoscopic camera. The potential for confusion, among those who actually matter, is very low.

Yes but how many times will you be asked if you need 3D glasses to go with it before you scream  :o  ;D

Canon General / Re: Photographer Petitions Canon for Left Handed Camera
« on: January 26, 2015, 04:56:29 PM »
This is it ;)

Reminded me of the old hammerhead flash and bracket I used to have on my F1n...... Two birds with one stone put some controls on a flash handle and still get access to left side connections?

Quite amazing from an APS-c sensor, I have to admit. With the focus verification you can put the sharp point exactly where you want it which is fascinating. You are focusing with the actual sensor without any mirrors or calculations. Very cool if you want to isolate a non-moving subject. You get the eyelashes if that's what you are after.

In fact, this is what I would have wanted when the need of multifocal eyeglasses started to interfere with taking pictures and I could not really tell what was in focus through the viewfinder. They came up with the autofocus which obviously was the right move when you look at its current status. But this is not bad, not bad at all.

Interesting, I really do like this ability. I've never used ML but of course I'd love to use this through the viewfinder. It's funny with all the talk in another thread about face recognition I'd really much prefer to be able to do this through an optical viewfinder with some sort of HUD ability that switches off when not in use.
