EOS Bodies / Re: Poll: Would you buy a high MP Canon EOS 5DIV?
« on: September 29, 2014, 11:48:53 AM »
The 5D3 represents a great all around full framer.

In my opinion, this represents the best summation of the 5DIII.

It is possible to find other cameras that can do something specifically better than the 5DIII.  But as a total package, for a wide span of photography, the 5DIII is an excellent camera system.
+1

I do hope that 5DIV will continue filling that role too. Better IQ, Better Low and High ISO performance better DR, latest AF, maybe 7-8 fps and ... same MPixel count :)

Plus the same Mpixel will probably be good for video lovers (I am not) since it will allow the 3x3 pixel binning (probably with more capabilities).

810 doesn't just approach the 5d3, in tech, it pulls out and passes it and flips the bird at it on the way by.

Yes, we all know you think "camera" = "sensor".   Frame rate...5DIII > D810.  AF system...5DIII > D810.
Hmmm, plus:

Canon Lenses > Nikon Lenses, ML at Canon > ML at Nikon .... ohhhhh wait  :o

Why do you say that out of curiosity?  Don't get me wrong, I'm somebody who almost went the Nikon route but ultimately went with Cannon, however I keep running across assessments that Nikon and Cannon both have excellent and nearly equivalent quality (overall) lens offerings.

There are a few things that Cannon offers that Nikon doesn't (ie: I get the impression that Cannon is better when it comes to macro offerings) and visa versa (Nikon has traditionally had more to offer with Wide Angle lenses... particularly UWA zooms).
Maybe for reasons like this:

EOS Bodies / Re: Poll: Would you buy a high MP Canon EOS 5DIV?
« on: September 26, 2014, 06:12:01 AM »
The question is hypothetical and presumes

1) a 5DIV would improve generically on the 5DIII but with a significant MP boost (at least 32MP compared to the existing 22MP for the 5DIII)

2) the price range of such a camera would follow the pattern of the 5D-family (around 3.500$ at launch)
+1 Plus, the poll assumes that Canon will mess with 5D series and increase the MP count instead of improving noise and DR.

Yes Sir, the D810 is has an better image quality and dynamic range than the 5DIII.
Nope.

It has better dynamic range (if you don't know how to maximise DR in Canon files), but that does not equate to "better image quality", and the 5D Mk III lacks for nothing in terms of overall IQ compared to the Nikon at the image level.
+1, plus, the increased DR exists only in Low ISO...

D800 -> D810

The 5dm3 is looking really old.
One more reason to respect my 5DMkIII cameras  ;D

@sagittariansrock  and @brad-man  thanks for the info and link

@sagittariansrock: I would risk the 35 1.4L instead of putting more money for something you don't really need.
It is old, subject to upgrade and at the same time cheaper than the super 24-70 2.8 II.

For me the 35mm 1.4 is one of the best choices for street photography.

For a trip or friends I would risk the 24-70 2.8 II.

The only bundle that I have seen 7DII is with the EF-S18-135. In fact this costs 300 more than body only 7DII.

Where is a bundle 7DII with 24-70 f/4 IS available and sold in this price?

EOS Bodies / Re: 5diii to 7dii?
« on: September 23, 2014, 09:32:04 AM »
I have two 5DMkIIIs and I am keeping them. I am not interested in 7DMKII ... a lot!

By a lot I mean that for some specific (non-action) shots I am FL limited. But even for that shots I need best possible IQ. So it is a draw!

For now I'll stick to these since it is much easier to have exactly the same bodies.

14 2.8 L Version II has coma but not as much as other lenses like my now sold 16-35 2.8 version I or the 24 1.4L II. Plus, it is usable wide open.

My only complaint as I wrote before is that its bulbous element cannot be protected enough from various light sources...

12
OK, I must be blind  ;D I hadn't seen the word "fisheye" !!!!!!!!!!!


So this will complement rectilinear wide angle lenses  :)

13
Not really excited as I already have the Canon 14mm 2.8L II.

OK. I know:

1. 12mm is different that 14mm
2. The Canon has a little coma

BUT:

1. Coma is not huge.
2. Samyang like Canon will have a bulbous from element. This, in conjunction with the fact that it is so wide
will get the light from many sources and will probably cause flare just like my 14mm 2.8L II did (with car headlights)

What I need is a 16-35 2.8L III zoom with no coma that I will be able to use it with hood in astro.

Why not post this on the Magic Lantern forum?
+1 Exactly! Posting about ML on this forum is useful ONLY IF it is accompanied by a similar post in ML forum. In that case ML people are notified about the problem. At the same time CR people are notified too. Otherwise nothing can be done about this.

EOS Bodies / Re: 6D Mark-II in response to the D750
« on: September 19, 2014, 08:37:26 AM »
An update of 5DMkIII is the proper response. D750 is not an entry level FF.
