The thing is, 'consumers' are not the only market out there, and many of the people who are upset at the 5D3 fall outside that demographic and feel like Canon has really focused on what 'consumers' want and professionals (or other markets) are only getting what overlaps with the mass market.
Really? I'm honestly surprised to hear that:
* Dual cards
* Pro AF
* Improved weather sealing
* More FPS
* EC +/- 5 stops
* Improvement to focus microadjust
* Reduction in shutter lag
* Viewfinder improvement
* X-sync improvement
* Silent mode shooting
These are pro features, especially the AF.
Understand that the 5d3 isn't what everyone wanted, but the one thing I don't think can be claimed is this was was a camera for consumers. Consumers would generally not want a pro AF but would likely want more MP. Not saying the pro market doesn't want more MP either, but if they were going for the consumer market I have no doubt MP would have increased since consumers with 5dii's would look at the 5diii as no real improvement for them.
Yep I got one of those and the slightly more expensive one with the flappy mount like the Black rapid TR-1 connector to see how it compares.
but these new better copies just came out and i got a couple
and boy the quality is EXACTLY the same as genuine BR
My buddy picked up this one for $14 - I thought it was $18:
Holy crap, it looks and feels identical as the BR RS-4. It is hard to tell if it is as resilient but at $14 verses 69.99 Canadian, it will be hard to justify the real version.
it can do so much more than shoot landscapes, however if you were only ever going to shoot landscapes at narrow aperture then may as well save some cash and get the 17-40 but personally i love the 16-35 III wish they'd make a 17-40 2.8L. Yeah most people might not need the extra stop since they'd be shooting landscape but it's nice to know it's there when you might need it - e.g walking down the beach with your family in the fading light of the sunset. Just a thought...
LOL. Indeed - they made not one, but two versions of the 16-35mm f/2.8L, and before that was the 17-35mm f/2.8L.
Stopped down to f/8-f/11, the 16-35mm II isn't really much better than the 17-40/4, but the flexibility of an extra stop when needed is why I opted for the 16-35mm II.
Give me a Sigma OS version! Pretty pleaseDitto I've been burnt by tamron once I dont think i could do it again but sigmas new lenses are really stepping up
I still don't understand why you need to shoot RAW+JPEG anymore?
well, i'm not a pro user, i used to shoot RAW only with 5D2, and convert them to JPEG to store after some editing in DPP/PS, and i only edit less than maybe 10% of them, Shooting RAW+JPEG can save me a lot time since i dont need to convert that 90% of photos into JPG, and the ability of storing jpeg on SD-card-only make sense to me because i can take the card out, put it into pretty much any computer/HDTV nowadays without needing a card reader or RAW file plugin (especially with 5D3 RAW format).
i often delete photos from camera after review them on the LCD. taking 12 continuous picture in 2 seconds of my kid running, i m not gonna keep all of them, out of which 1/3 or more are bad ones i can easily tell on the LCD screen. and i cant afford those high speed high capacity cards ...
yep I really hope they do that with the 7D2 that is exactly what I want.Never liked the 7D IQ - so quite probably, but not close to the the 5s and 1s
oh no way, I put it's IQ close to the 1Dmk3 but the 1Dmk3 wins i think, i've been meaning to do a head head shootout between the 2 for fun with the 1D3 using the 14-105 f4 IS vs the x10 28-112 f2-2.8 IS
10MP vs 12MP both shoot at 10FPS
Roll on the 7D2 complete with aps-h, pro af, twin cards, 16 mps and 10fps
