Nikon D810: What You Need to Know  @ Dpreview


Summary of new functions

Software & Accessories / Tablet to use as remonte for 6D
« on: June 22, 2014, 12:34:06 PM »
I am looking for an (non Apple) >= full HD tablet, sized 10" plus with an high brightness.
I will try to use the tablet as an remote for my 6D (macro, try to begin portrait photography).
Connection over Wifi only, no LTE e.g. is needed.

Do you know an good product for this?

Sorry, for beeing not precise. I shot on approaching racing cars, high speed AF and continuous shooting. The cars had about the same speed each pass. Afterwards counted how many pictures were sharp.
Ok, I will ask my friends, if I can do AFMA on their leneses at CPS.
Thanks for your information

All lenses were adjusted by Canon CPS in spring this year. But only on their "home" cameras.
Ok, the sharpness will be influenced by that, but does AFMA influence the AF performance too?
Same situation, my lens got about 60% sharp, the worst of the three just about thirty? But why?

I recognized that my 70D´s AF performance and accuracy varies from lens to lens.
The German "Color Foto" magazine compared the AF perfomrance and accuracy between some Cams (SLR, MLils,...) and between some lenses. There the 70D was no winner.... It perfomred best with the Sigma 18-35, worst with the 50mm Macro... (Lesser than half of all shots were sharp. NEX-7´s shots were over 90% sharp...
Ok. I read the test and was a little bit disappointed. I see thath some lenses perform better, some worser on the 70D. Noteable: mirorless Cams are most superior to the SLR (in this price class)

My question: I´d like to know, why my 70D´s AF performance varies so much, using 3 different 70-200 2.8L lenses when I shoot moving objects? I rented 2 from my clubfriends, one I own by myself. Mine was fast and mostly sharp, one was better (more sharp pictures), one noteably worser. But why?

My first L-lens was the Canon 28-70mm L USM 2.8. I bought it back in 1995. and I am still happy with it :-)

I hope Canon improves this technology. I owned a 400 DO IS, nearly 10 years ago, but the optical quality was not that, I thougt it would be. There was an aberration in the left upper corner that caused in an distorsion in this area. So I changed to the 300mm 2.8. And that was an very  good decision.

Sometimes I think, the "Year of Lenses" excludes Canon....
Where are the new primes and other "L" lenses?

EOS Bodies / Re: 7D Mark.II delayed again + 1Dx replacement mentioned.

There was no news of a 'big megapixel' body only that the replacement of the 1D X was 'on schedule'.
On schedule for 2016, I'm sure.  Just like the 7D, I'm sure the huge firmware update was to delay the launch of the next camera. Gotta love rumors; I wonder how much (if any) truth there is to this one.

Sure. You joined an rumor forum.
I like rumors too. There is some hope inside. Hope that we will receive an better successor of what we own. If this will let us shoot better pics, I do not know
My second half of life I worked with the hope that our teamwork saved ones life

Heared that too. The shop assistants in the professional Canon shop in our county are afraid, that the 7D2 will not appear until 2015. In 2013 the 70D was a little money-spinner in autumn until X-Mas. In 2014 they hope, the 7d2 will be quite a bigger one. In combination with an 100-400mm (or so) lens for sports, action, wildlife....

A local member of our foto-club (who works there) did not deny these concerns (I think he is not allowed to talk about this)
