It's a great site congratulations

I certainly hope so. I would like to see a couple of stops better iso in RAW files if the new 12800 = current 3200 that would be awesome. I'm totally not interested in marketing jpg spin though
AF will be a godsend extra FPS not critical but fine.
bigger better brighter veiwfinder would be sweet as going between 1D and 5D2 there is a massive difference
dual card is nice
and hoping for better build quality

Canon has a bigger range of lenses, but all the newer Nikon G series lenses are seriously awesome. Easily comparible to canon L glass and in some cases better.

Nikon has the 14-24 which canon doesnt
but canon has the 16-35 L II which IMO is better than the out dated nikon equivalent

both 70-200 f2.8 are pretty much on a par for both

so many comparisons can be made, both systems have their good and bad points, 1 thing is for certain range of lenses for both companies is why they are market dominant over the sonys, pentaxs etc of the world

Kinda curious, how many of you would buy a new 50mm 1.4 with fantastic optics?  That's the kind of lens I have been waiting/hoping for.  Even if it was let's say $500, I would still jump on it.  Am I the only one who doesn't have thousands of dollars and would still love to have a great affordable lens like that?

in a heartbeat... same materials as the 100 f2.8L same build quality, call it an L but priced lower than the 1.2
still dreaming.... :(

the 1dx one was pretty much spot on accuracy of the CR3 rumours seems very high

well when you move over to the nameless system I would be interested in buying your 1D4 :D
No chance. I live in Argentina half the year and their are huge tariffs on imported camera equipment. I can sell my used gear down here and make a profit :)

That being said, I won't do anything rash... I'm still thinking about the company whose name begins with an S and makes a 120-300/2.8, that with a 1.4 extender is f4 and beats the pants off the 100-400 in terms of IQ. I shall rent it and see.

My ass is twitching.

well if that S 120-300 2.8 is anything like their 85 1.4 It would be worth a serious look

ok, been waiting for a topic about this to sprout up (was about to start one)...

I currently have 2 580exII's and have been wondering what the next move is.  I was seriously considering the phottix odin trigger system, then adding either a 3rd 580, or a 430 (to save some $$$ for the mkiii fund!)....

Now there is this 590 ex and its got me wondering if i should drop that plan?  Or what?...LOL...confused....
the odins are seriously good
once you have used them and see how easy it is to change groups, power group balance etc on the little screen you will wonder how you survived without them

Oh HELL no Canon. $11,000 for the 200-400?

The 200-400 lens from the company whose name shall remain unsaid costs $7000. I could buy their lens and a D800 and have enough left for some high-priced companionship.


well when you move over to the nameless system I would be interested in buying your 1D4 :D

« on: February 22, 2012, 05:43:13 PM »
you forgot to add the option of "I think canon should pay me to use it for them"

without having seen or tested the camera its pretty hard to determine how much i think is fair to pay for it based on half a dozen specs off a rumour dont you think?

Lenses / Re: What's your favorite Canon lens and why?
« on: February 22, 2012, 05:33:58 PM »
Ooh tough call.  I would say overall, the 16-35MK II.  It works flawlessly, silently, instantly, and is extremely sharp wide open.  The wide end for landscapes and fun portraits and the long end (35mm) for normalish shots.    It just has a ton of uses.

same here, tough call but I think the 16-35 mk2 except i love it more on aps-h for a walk around lens giving 20-48mm and corner to corner sharp images wide open

my other favourite lens is my sigma 85mm f1.4

Well what I hope happens with these canon price increases is the Australian price gets regulared correctly against the US price becasue at the moment the premium we pay for gear is silly. So if the camera comes in a $3500 aussie too then thats good.

I'm hoping build quality is closer to 1D but as for the rest of those specs
all I can say is

I'm hoping for 20-somethinig MP ... the Nikon camp is currently in a dither because Nikon is saying that need to use it with a tripod nearly all the time! lolz

And what of the 7D? 60d? 50d? Nobody ever uses them hand-held? Hah, they all have higher photosite density than the D800!

shhhhh dont go ruining a good story with crazy stuff like facts :P
