EOS Bodies / Re: Are These The EOS 7D Mark II Specifications?
« on: August 29, 2014, 08:41:02 AM »
We're not, we are asking for a demonstration of the actual achievable resolution differences when handheld and when using AF.

As JR said, there's so many variables it can become entirely subjective.
FWIW, I've had handheld AF shots from my 800e with 70-200mm f/4 VR at 200mm that are as crisp at 15th second (yes, low light) as I was getting my my 5d2 and 70-200 f/2.8 L IS 2 in bright sunlight (likely 1/400s @ f8)
Used with good glass and technique, even handheld, the ability to get very high resolution images from the d800 series is not all that difficult.  The 810's mirror action is even smoother, which should help a bit more.

Having seen your work, I doubt it.

no really dont beat about the bush tell us what you really think ... :D

i'd take the 16-35 the 50 f1.2 and the 135

the 16-35 is essential for city walk around especially densly packed streets
50 general all round low light but not as tight as the 85

tough call between the 85 and the 135 but the 135 gives you some decent reach if you need something longer
and the 85 is quite close to the 50 anyway

maybe they are adding panning mode IS...

I'd happily pay another $1000 to be able to send mine in and have panning mode added...

biggest negative on this lens for sure

 my Eos M with ML on it decided that it would stop allowing shutter release. really odd

D800 -> D810

The 5dm3 is looking really old.

Not as old as that whine.

So like many, I have de-coupled the half shutter press from AF, and instead use the AF-ON button to Auto Focus.

Boom - no more hesitation when the trigger is pulled waiting for the lens to re-focus.

What's missing though is a second AF-ON button / Dedicated SERVO mode.

How many of you toggle between "Single Shot" and "Servo" ?

Is it just me, or it would it be sooooooo nice to have them both at your fingertip?

Switching between C1/2/3 isn't a good alternative, esp with a locked dial.
5d3 and 1 DX can program the dof button to do this

I guess I'm the only one hoping for an EF-M pancake. I certainly don't expect it, I just like the idea of having another pocketable lens for my little friend.

id be super keen for a EF-M 35 f2 pancake

Well...to each is own, I guess. Me, I'm going to get vocal about Canon's crappy low ISO noise, and do everything I can to back up my claims with concrete, visual evidence...because, it's really freakin NASTY noise. STILL nasty...after all these years. And I think that needs to change (especially because Canon is still my preferred brand...I'd rather have a 5D IV with 50mp and 14 stops of DR than a D800.)

I see nothing wrong with jrista complaining about "Canon's crappy low ISO noise."

Anyone is welcome to complain about anything they want. But...

...doing it over and over and over and over again to the same audience becomes tedious.

...attempting to "prove" your point again and again to those who happen to disagree with your opinion becomes annoying.

...insisting that you are right and then attacking anyone who doesn't share your viewpoint is obnoxious.

...failing to recognize that what you perceive to be a major concern isn't necessarily even a minor concern of others is rude.

...hijacking every discussion to push your agenda with long diatribes that repeat the same basic points time after time is obsessive.

...demeaning others when they raise concerns about features that you don't happen to care about (as in touch screens) is narrow minded.

...making wild claims that unless your particular obsession is addressed by a major multi-national corporation they will be doomed is delusional.

And, most important of all...thinking that these discussions on an internet forum are anything more than trivial ineffective entertainment is just silliness.
well said mr unfocused

this is the EF-S and EF-M samyang / rokinon 8mm comparison
without even adding in the adapter there is a massive size difference already

Would you be so kind as to upload a wee pic of the EOS M with the EF-M version of the 8mm fisheye attached to it please?

Just want to see it for reference.

sure i'll do it now
here it is with the 18-55 for comparison
