I hope so, they both should use the same sensor (I would hope). I don’t mind the rumored 22mp but the 5DX has to have great DR/ISO performance.
QuotePeople are speculating that $3500 is with kit lens. Users from other forums seem to have evidence.
I'm not sure I've seen any posts about a kit lens, and not sure what lens they would throw in that has enough value to raise to a $3500 price tag. You're not going to put a junk lens in with what has the potential to be a new standard body for many photographers.. That's like the old "putting $29 speakers on a $2000 receiver" analogy. There may be some combo deals out there, or if the price tag with a kit kens is $3500 and its a decent lens, maybe the body is back down in the more reasonable range.
The rumor I saw was $3800 Canadian with kit lens. I don't have the link. Some of the forums have no msg body search and I don't want to spend an hour tracking it down. I spent 5 minutes and couldn't find it again quickly.
Poster Palseb on page 27 of this very thread: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php/topic,3549.msg75606.html#msg75606Canadian Canon Vendors had a meeting today (Feb 23). The new 5D will be available in stores at the end of March 2012 in Canada at $3,800 with a lense (do not know which one).
This then lends credibility to the possibility that the body only could be between $2200 and $2500 mark (AUD) if its bundled with the "kit" 24-105mm f4.
That sounds much more reasonable
On a slightly different note, what software do you guys use for processing your shots? Also what type of processing do you prefer "Tone Mapping" or "Exposure Fusion"?
I've got a lot of Lensbaby stuff, and love it all (I've put some examples of mine in the thread that M_Max linked).
I started off with the Double Glass Muse, all the examples there I took with that. I've since got the 0.42x UWA adapter, then the single glass, plastic, and just recently the pinhole/zone plate (all off ebay, if you're patient you can get them for $5-10 each, don't pay $50 in a shop). I later got a Control Freak, 0.4x wide, 1.6x tele, +4 & +10 macro, and creative aperture kit off ebay, for about 3/4 the price of just the control freak in a shop.
The effect isn't for everybody, and isn't for every shot, just like Fisheye it can get old quickly. When I go to process some photos, after a while I get sick of looking at them and give up. But I do go back to them, and I like the fact that they're "not just another boring landscape" and "not just another boring portrait". They have character, personality, individuality. Maybe i'm a 'purist' in that I don't PP much (except colours/WB, and the occasional background-blurring of birds), but if you're handy in photoshop, by all means try doing it that way too.
And lensbaby is not a tilt-shift, they may give similar effects, but totally different images. Lensbaby blurs the image border, it draws your eye to the subject. Tilt can either blur the top/bottom, or left/right of the image, never all at once, because it changes the plane of focus. Tilt can also give you seemingly infinite focus if you line it all up properly. Both take a lot of practise to get right, it all depends how much time you're willing to put in.
(and to try out a cheap tilt lens, I've also got a Pentacon-Six to EF tilt adapter, $100 off ebay, and a lot of Pentacon Six lenses, the best widest-angle is the Zeiss Flektogon 50mm f/4.0, pay maybe $100 again, $200 is a lot cheaper than a TS-E 45mm)
