If 7d is already outresolving lenses, then what would be the point of a equally or more pixel dense sensor?..
Nice picture - but woooaaaahhhhhh, way toooooo much detail.
Honestly - how many brides want to be able to literally count those lovely blond hairs we're not supposed to see?
I think there is a lot of lighting help in making those photos look good. Great lighting can make even poor photographers look skilled.
lol given that photography is all about lighting your comment makes no sense.
what makes a photographer really good if not his lighting skills?
choosing the right iso, gently pressing the button?
Yeah, sure. Go shoot some sports and let me know how much time you spend working on the lighting.
It is a start, but I'd like to see more Hi-ISO shots as well. Further, I'd love to see some RAW files, but this will have to wait I guess.
Honestly, the ISO 1600 is not really impressive as shown there. I was hoping for more details in that. But I am willing to wait for more samples before judging anything
Now...downsample those 36 MP images to 16-18 MP and see how the noise compares - otherwise, it's an unfair comparison, just like all those folks who complain that their new 7D is noisier than the old 40D, and they're comparing at 100%.
. I am still a "prosumer" and have not to this date sold any prints for any money.
MF is a whole another world. for example, Hassel has only 1 focusing point with true focus and you cannot do series with focus shift and etc. So pro photographers require FF body functionality with near to MF picture quality. If Hassel does the same good job Canon/Nikon done with speed, focus and etc, then switching to MF will be massive.
Check the second protrait's background noise, not as good as I expected.
Even if there is detail that I'm missing, all the emphasis in portrait retouching seems to be on blurring or 'smoothing' the skin so why would we need more detail there? Anyway, in the real (non pixel-peeping) world, do portrait or wedding clients usually examine their pictures through a loupe?
It didn't seem like white lenses were in the majority there this year. Are pro sports shooters switching to Nikon or is that just my misperception?
I hate it when somebody tells me "you don't need anything more than 18MP." I have heard that a lot. How do they know what I need? When working with a model, I certainly need 27MP much more than double digit frames per second. I was kind of hoping the new 1D would rival medium format. When I'm shooting sports I don't want full frame. It's an impressive camera, but I really think they only people it's perfect for would be like National Geographic photographers and certain kinds of sports on smaller fields/courts. It's just the wrong camera for me and a lot of others, as well, even though it has a lot of really sexy features.
anyway... the question is why can, for example, olympus design new lenses en mass for m43 and canon has lenses that are methusalems?
it´s not as if a 50mm prime for 35mm is so much harder to design then for m43.
