Received my exchange Eos 6D yesterday. Eos Info 1.2 tells me 0 shutter releases. But you can see signs of usage (sorry for my poor English, my stroke keeps me of reminding my prior good English knowledge).  Works fine, satisfying IQ. I just had to clean the mirror (fingerprint on it)

Thanks for your advice.

Some od us - like me dislike the new 5Ds.
But honestly, the 5Ds will be well sold. Be sure, the IQ maybe not better than existing bodies, but equal to them. So millions of buyers like the IQ of Canon and they will buy this high-MP body.

I wonder, why the AF area is so small. My son´s brand new 7DII has nearly double the AF-Area. (added picture from Canon.de)

The 7DII is a crop camera. If you put the same AF sensor inside full and crop cameras, it will have a greater coverage of the sensor in the crop.

but why can´t they create a bigger one?

Does anybody know, if the M3 works with Canon EF lenses? How will be the performance of the AF system?

The price is high, but so I can use my bought leneses on this mlc too

I received an newsletter of my local Canon powerseller. 4250€  :o for the 5DsR....  ( I thought the 3600$=3600€, but....)
Ok, I see what you mean. A lot of money... So, our hopes are on an 5DIV (that could be even more expensive than the 5Ds). Or for an cheaper Sony with an better IQ....

Ok, this is canons first try to produce an high-MP cam.
Let us wait for the first user pictures and first tests.
Sure, the limitations hurt, but - for me - it was clear that this body will not be an 50MP "1" -series body with all good features inside.  If the 5Ds would have "1D"-features inside, the price would be in an other region.

On the other hand, let us wait for an 24MP 5DIV (that is combining low light features and good IQ). Canon gets its chance to strike back. (Just think of Marsu´s "Hubba bubba will defeat us....").

The coming Sony successor will be an marvellous camera. Wait for it´s appearance on the market, paired with the new zeiss lenses. Zeiss is currently developing new lenses for them, customized to meet the IQ at an "very high" resolution.
Try both cams and decide which cam is better for you. As a member of my family works for Sony/Zeiss, I will buy an A7R successor. Just for fun.

One remark:

Mr. CR writes on the front page of CR
http://www.canonrumors.com/2015/02/the-new-canon-products-coming-february-6-2015/#more-18540

Canon EOS 5DS: €3,499
Canon EOS 5DS R: €3,699

He writes "€", not "$". Maybe the Us price will be cheaper - IF the leaked price comes from Europe.

Pricing is based on the expectations of demand generated at a particular price point. Canon knows that even though every 5Ds will cost them the same amount to produce they have different expectations of the market demand for different regions.  The U.S./North America is a very large market, and you have a higher number of people with incomes that can support purchasing products in this price class. This basically means that as the price goes down in small amounts in U.S. the more people will likely purchase a 5Ds in greater numbers. This is demand elasticity. Incomes in Europe are generally lower which are often more than made up for with higher levels of social services, but that is another topic entirely. The result is that in Europe there is less demand-elasticity, which means that even if Canon lowers the price by a couple hundred dollars(Euros) they won’t generate that many more sales, so Canon is financially better off leaving the pricing higher in Europe and several other markets.
I agree....

It's because the standard of living in Europe is so much higher :) The U.S. will soon be a third-world country, but that's another subject entirely ;D

This is politically a little bit uncorrect  ;)

Seriously, though, I was expecting this body to be in the $4,000 to $4,500 USD range, so if this rumor holds true it's a pleasant surprise.


In some forums the 5Ds is mentioned as an "6D" of the high-MP bodies....
But let us see, how the first tests and experiences are....

The first rumored prices (http://www.techtoyreviews.com/canon-5ds-image-leaked-price-tag-3800/) were not far away....

" ...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...."


In my opinion, there is one BIG mistake in Mr. CRs posting.... the 4000$/4200$ will be 4000/4200 EURO (or something just a little bit lower). In Germany announced products are often priced $=€

I got an phone call some minutes ago. After writing an letter to Canon, a service employee called me.
The would exchange the 6D, as it is not worth repairing it. I will get an refurbished one. But he can not say, how old and how "used" the 6D is.

What is your opinion? Should i take the refurbished, or rely on getting mine repaired?
 The time of warranty for my 6D expires in June, the warranty of the refurbished one in June too.

EOS Bodies / Re: Bingo! New Canon 5Ds has 50.6 MP new rumored specs

For me personally, the question is:

Will the rumored (http://www.techtoyreviews.com/canon-5ds-image-leaked-price-tag-3800/) 3800$ (5DS) or the 4300$ (5DsR) be worth the price, Canon will want to have for it?

Or wait for an 5DIV, an goldenegglayingwoolmilksaw??? But how much will this be????

Those prices are way too high. If true, Canon killed the success of this camera right out the door. It can't be more than the D810. If anything it needs to be less, as most people looking for higher MP and higher DR have already moved to Nikon. I doubt many people are going to pay more for something with just more MP. 36MP is already taxing out many lenses and is a huge amount of detail!

I can't even think of a single professional landscape photographer who hasn't moved on to an A7R or D800/810 by now, who shoots with 35mm format gear.

Sir, I am just an hobby photographer, but why shouldn´t Canon drain our wallet as much they can?
Look at Apple, whose iPhones are just incremental better than the earlier model? But on each sucessor, the price moves up and up....

Edit: My son in law mentioned, that the a7rII (successor) will be priced significantly lower than 3000Euro,  at 2500+-. As many parts of the  camera-systems are better from Canon, the pricetag could be true

thx.

If the problems continue, one of friends will fix this problem for me. He works for the German consumer protection department...
But this procedure is a shame...
