A few my buddy actually took of me that I liked

As for your CIPA comparison of 1H14 to 1H13 – keep in mind that the major players in mirrorless have all released new models this year, whereas the #1 dSLR maker has not released a new consumer model so far 2014. I think you're making too much of a short-term trend.Yep, no new xxxD, xxD, or xD camera from Canon would certainly affect short term sales, probably in the same way the T5i, 70D, and 6D (actually being available closer to Dec 2012) coming out in 2013 boosted that years sales for Canon. What were the ratios in 2012 and 2011? Not to mention, ratios that are 3:1, 4:1, etc are still pretty massive...you're talking several years at your presumed shrinking pace til they'd be 1:1
I hope it falls inside the $1700-1900 bracket but it will depend on the final specs. The original 7D was selling at launching around $1,600Yeah, not to mention the 70D came out ($1199) at about the same price as the 60D ($1099) when it launched, so, I dont think you'll see a wild swing in the price on the new 7D. The original launched at $1699, I'd bet somewhere between that and $1999 is your price target.
I'm still confused. Are you saying that my lens would autofocus at f5.6 or f6.3 but not at f8 or f11 and that I should be using manual focus at any aperture smaller than f5.6?No, in this case, its referring to the maximum aperture a lens has. For example, a 100-400 has a max aperture of f/5.6 at 400mm, and so it will auto-focus on all Canon cameras. If you stop it down to f/8 or f/11, it will still autofocus. However, if you put a 1.4x converter on it, you've turned it into a 560mm f/8 lens, and it will no longer autofocus on most Canon bodies (1D series and 5dIII aside). The autofocus system relies on light and contrast to focus, and you've made it too dark a lens for the auto-focus system to work reliably.
Can somebody explain the appeal to me? Not trying to start a flame war, just trying to understand.I dont think they are intended to compete with the other primes...rather to serve a complementary purposed to larger kits.
It is the year of the lens . . .To be fair, this is exactly what was said in that post
Firstly, a new worlds widest full frame zoom lens (nor sure what this could be), a wide angle zoom with IS (17-50 f/4L IS?), a new fast wide angle successor with “new technology” (35 f/1.4?). We can also expect two new tilt-shift lenses, a telephoto zoom successor (100-400?) as well as “budget high quality lenses”.
Can't tell if this is serious or not. Both because the 19pts are contained within the 65pts (so you can opt not to use the extra 46), and because by that logic, you should really just want one focus point. Or a film camera...
65 AF points “All Cross-type”. Dual cross on the center point.
I like the 19 point system over the 45 point system. Easier to actually identify a tracking point AND it makes you work. I like cameras that reward you putting some work in.
There isn't a ton of hype about the 7DmkII in the video world, only because most people have given up on Canon outside of Magic Lantern hacks. But the hope is still that Canon will release the 7DmkII to match or at least come cose to the GH4 in video specs.Yep, honest truth is that Canon has lost the low-budget indie video world a good 2+ years ago. Panasonic, BlackMagic, etc took it over, and I dont think Canon can realistically get it back. 1080/60 is something cameras had years ago, and unless the DPAF turns it into camcorder level AF, it wont win a lot of people.
Consider a photography workshop led by a professional guide. The guide sets up all the stops, times the trip to hit the indigenous ceremonies at the right time, makes sure all the students are standing at the right overlook at the right time of day for perfect light, then steps back and lets the students point-n-click. By your reasoning, copyright of their photos would belong to the guide, not to the student who took the photo because all they did was play and click.This is probably the most useful analogy I've seen; and it shows why "creating the conditions" is a pretty vague and useless criteria to use. It matters who framed the shot (the monkey) and who snapped the photo (the monkey)...and that's pretty much it.
For a crop sensor? Who would pay that price?Seriously, people would just by a 1DX at that price point.
