Ok for starters this is the same guy that stole trey ratcliff's HDR of time square and claimed it was his
it happens to be the exact photo that trey goes into great detail of the processing of it in one of his ebooks
SOoooo. I would take anything on the peter Lik site with a bag of salt... it might not even be his!
Peter Lik only deals with high res for his work for sale. Not sure about this one. Did this person in question just give Peter his full res 21MP 16bit tiff file. Got to be joking aren't you? So now, you are saing Peter's a fraud. Duuuude, Peter isn't that much into HDR. Although he does shoot digital these days, his work is mainly 617 medium format film
I use my black rapid strap and love it. I've never had the lug loosen, but I do check it occasionally if I'm walking around for a long period of time.
The neck straps give me a sore neck in just a few minutes.
I do not go back and forth from strap to tripod mount very often, or I'd get a clamp that attaches to a QR plate.
I also do not carry a really large lens on it, my 100-400mm L being the largest. I could not imagine someone carrying a 300mm f/2.8 with it, for example, but there are probably a few that do.
True, there is still that price point of around $2000 for a entry FF camera that sell like hotcakesThey're still making 5D2 and selling at around $2400. If this "new high end" is announced at $2500, it will instantly kill the sales of 5D2 that they still have to clear the stock of.
If they are still making 5DII and expect to continue selling it after this new end camera is announced, it would suggest the following:
More expensive than the 5DII - If it would be at a similar price, it would instantly kill sales of the 5D as you say....no matter whether it is named 5D3 or not.
Not named 5DII or 5DX Canon will reveal a 5D3 at some point - but they will not be selling it alongside the 5DII - in fact, just announcing a 5D3 will kill sales of the 5DII, simply because it will create the impression that the 5DII is "obsolete".
So, again, IF they are still making 5DII and plan to do so for a while, it would actually make sense to have a February announcement of a $4000 "3D" (or whatever - just not a 5D3), and then a $3000 5D3 late in the year.
22MP is really horrifying news. I will not buy that. Compared to my mk2 I need higher dynamic range, better high ISO performance and higher resolution. I think 48 MP would have been a good choice. Perhaps I will have to consider to switch to D800 if it is really 36MP.DITTO! and perhaps they can make a new 5-500mm f2 Lens as a kit all for $2000
I have no understanding what so ever for those who wants better dynamics and ISO performance but not higher resolution when it's clearly better with the better dynamics, ISO performance AND higher resolution. You must be stupid if you want 2 of 3 improvements instead of all 3.
The specification also doesn't make sense. I don't see the market segment between 1DX and 7D. What we need is high resolution, high dynamic range, high ISO performance and no banding. Of couse also improved AF compared to mk2. High speed isn't important since that area is covered by 1DX and 7D. Anyway with 48MP (or 36MP) there would have been possible to make a crop mode with higher speed.
