EOS Bodies / Re: When will we have a full frame body below $1,000?
« on: November 24, 2012, 08:16:49 AM »
i'' be that guy that chimes in with---

It's already here!  It's called the original 5d, or as many call it the 5dc.  I see them used now for $500-900 all the time.
I guess OP means new not used.

EOS Bodies / Re: What will be the issue with the 6D

I had a chuckle at this tounge-in-cheek posting.  The Canon 6D will be a fine camera, but it's biggest issue will be the Nikon D600.  On paper, it looks better across most specs.
Nikon is always an issue for Canon. And Canon is always an issue with Nikon...  ;D

Canon will need to invent a new battery grip (the BG-E13XL) that takes at least 6 x LP-E6's :P
  ;D Or it will have to provide a method to turn it off. But I guess then it might take much time to find the coordinates when turned on again  ::)

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 6D launch and effect on 5D MkII & MKIII

I usually shoot RAW to the primary card slot and jpeg to the secondary.  I'd hate to lose a priceless moment to a memory card failure....
In that case you should shoot RAW to both cards...

They will add four wheels and they will replace the strap with a rope so as the young kids will be able to play with it  ;D

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Dumb question?
« on: November 23, 2012, 11:44:27 AM »
No, but welcome to a world where you wide angle lenses are wildly expensive or wildly bad. You will cry for your 10-22 again...

It will be sitting on my 450D until i can get a wildly expensive WAL to go with a wildly expensive camera! Well, that would be the plan! :)

Thanks all for your help! :)
I just saw your gear list. It's VERY GOOD. So I guess it depends on how your 450D limits you. I would wait a few months to see if Canon would announce a 7DMkII and then decide. (By the way how your 450D compares to 7D in high ISO? I have NO idea but if I were to guess I would expect it to be at least equally good... )

Hey this is probably a dumb question, but here goes...

I want to go FF, but loosing the length i get from a cropped body worries me. But I had a thought...

I am using a 450D (12MP) and am thinking of getting me a 5D MKIII (22MP)...  If i were to crop the FF image to 12MP, what is the crop factor? 1.8 (22/12)???  If this is the case, with a 5D MKIII image cropped, i will actually be getting more magnification than i would with my 450D...  and a lot better quality (i would hope)...

Am I barking up the wrong tree here? Am I being dumb (i'm not renown for my maths skills)?
Actually 12Mpixels at 1.6X crop factor the equivalent FF would be 12 * (1.6*1.6) = 30.72 Mpixels.
Sensors are 2-dimensional objects...

If you have the budget, one could think as well about the 90mm f2.8 TS-E that will offer even more possibilities for food pictures on a tripod. It's the lens I use the most (by far) for studio pictures of small items.
I was about to suggest the same when I saw your post. Unless the OP intends on shooting other subjects this TS-E is an excellent choice. Maybe THE choice.

Anyway we need some ice-cream photos on this thread to make everyone hungry. This is the only one I have on me. Ambient light. 5D Mark II with Canon 35 f/1.4L. Cropped SOOC jpeg.
Hey! Watch your posts! Ice-cream lover here  :P

Canon General / Re: 70-200 F2.8 mark I or mark II?!
« on: November 22, 2012, 01:07:48 PM »
I agree get the Canon 70-200 f2.8 IS II. If in doubt check the lenses you mentioned in photozone.de.

[Bodies come and go, but good glass should last for 20 years or more. ]

Hmmm... my body is already over 73 years old. My glasses, however are about one year old and will need replacement in around two years time.
;D  ;D I guess the glasses are not "L" though...

The 35mm f/1.4L does not have weather sealing.

Hmmmm... well, it would probably hold up better if dropped, right?
;D I haven't made any comparison

It doesn't seem that the new 35/2 IS would be a replacement for the 1.4.... Am I wrong??
Plus, the f/1.4L has better weather sealing and durability.
