I think we'll see the 5dII successor simply for them to try and one-up the D600. We might see the new 70D, but, it'll basically be the old 7D with the new sensor AF and a weaker body

Their source is CR!!!!! LOLYep, they are using the two CR1 posts from this site (that were also sourced from NL) to say what will "be announced". Very, very silly, considering what CR1 means. Interestingly, they didn't bother to mention the 100-400, new 400mm, new 35mm, new 50mm, new 45mm and 90mm T/S, new 70D, new cheap full-frame, or any of the other items (new 430ex, etc) that have been CR1 in the same time frame. Kind of lazy/bad for credibility to put them in the "what to expect" category
Is the improvement proportional to the cost of my gear? No, it's far greater. I can put a price on the gear (and I have to, for insurance coverage). The memories captured are priceless.I love this take on it and I completely agree. While I don't have kids, its impossible to put value on how much fun I've had trying to capture a bunch of different shots and the places its taken me. And how much more fun it is than sitting in my living room in a weekend.
it´s an entry level fullframe. not really a competition to the 5D MK3 other then sensor size and MP.Well, 39pt AF, 5fps, etc. Granted, the ISO levels and SD cards are a big difference that would keep pro's away.
The only use where I would think of 24mm 1.4L II would be astrophotography.Yep, I had the same thought. AF would be a non-issue for me for landscape and architectural work, as I'd be manual focusing most of the time anyway.
except those zoom lenses that have been said to not work at 4k on this modelWell, these zooms are designed for an APS-C image circle, thus why you have to change to Super 35 mode. If you're in an APS-H mode using a lens designed for an APS-C image circle, you're going to get an ugly vignette. My guess is they were designed for the APS-C image circle to keep them lighter (thus the headline, "lightweight compact zooms" on the CR page)
No lens has "portrait" written on it, but the 100L certainly is usable for this application, and for a wedding is more versatile than the 100/2 because you can close-up shots without changing lenses. The "real" flexible portrait lens for weddings is the 70-200/2.8 if you are willing to carry that around.True, but, if you're going with a prime, one of the 100mm macro's is a nice combo to have so you don't have to keep changing lenses to get detail shots.
I would rather say: don't preorder to make Canon rethink their announcement.Except then they prioritize the production of that lens even less, because half as many people have pre-ordered. Its more that you should not rely on anything until its actually released. I wouldn't sell off any gear to fund a new lens until I could buy that new lens in store, for example.
There was this CR2 rumor a little while agoSame with the new 100-400L, 35L, and I believe a non-L 50mm replacement (f/1.8 IS?). Most if not all were early in the summer, and its been quiet since then. The pushing back of the 24-70 probably explains why; maybe they'll get announced at Photokina.
At the current rate, even if Canon announced it tomorrow, it could be a year before you see it, and even then, with very limited quantities. Given that, I doubt you will be seeing anything in a store for 1-2 years if (and that is a big if) this was a high priority lens in testing now.Actually, i think that is why we are seeing Canon hold off on announcing any new lenses...it'd be really embarrassing to announce another highly sought after lens and then not deliver for a year. And since they still keep pushing back the 24-70, I'm not expecting any lens announcements (except maybe a new kit lens for a new, cheaper full-frame) until next year
PhotoRumors guy is reporting the next Sony a99 will have 102 autofocus points. This got me thinking – are we getting into overkill here?Yes, and mostly because of how Sony did it. Only 11 of those AF points are cross-point, so, by that measure, its really on par with the 60D/T4i AF for cross-points. So, chances are the 102 is more just for the number than for practicality. But, if we start getting AF systems even more complex than the 5dIII/1DX, they could genuinely be 100+ pt AF with 90 cross-points and be better.
Is this the next form of megapixel wars? "Your 1DX has a mere 61 autofocus points while we have 102."
Question: would the IQ be so much different if you took the same photo (something like an early evening sunset) with both lens, say at a setting of f5.6, ISO 100, 20mm length, using a tripod and remote release?The more you stop down a lens, the more comparable many of them become. The general consensus is that, stopped down, the 16-35 and 17-40 are very similar, and if you'll be using it a lot for f/8 landscapes, its easier to save money with the 17-40.
Can I assume that the shutter speed of the f2.8 would be half that of the f4? and with a tripod would the IQ be so different?At the same focal length, if your aperture and ISO are the same on both cameras, they will both give you the same shutter speed. Shutter speed, aperture and ISO are all inter-connected to set the exposure on your camera; if you lower one, you have to raise another to get the same exposure.
