It just kills me when people complain about the weight of todays DSLRs'.  ::)

remember the canon 1V sans grip

Best... Form factor... EVER!

a 1D like this would be killer
+1 You reminded me of my used EOS1n cameras  I miss this kind of design... :(

EOS Bodies / Re: Official DXOMark Sensor Score for the EOS-1D X
« on: November 03, 2012, 11:32:25 PM »
there are  calculations who shows about 24 stops of DR when the eyes and the brain ´╗┐´╗┐´╗┐interprets  scanning of a  motive, scene from the blackest  to whitest
So there will be a rumor that in the year 2120 Canon sensors will have 23 stops of DR and Nikon 25  ;D
The problem is there will be still arguing whether this is valid because DxO will have downsized the 300 Mpixel Canon and the 500Mpixel Nikon images down to ... 8  ;D

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon to start using 0.18um (180nm) process for FF?

Regarding "Canon says that..."
Well, total BS. Or actually, even worse than total BS - it's "Marketing speak"! 
Well you happened to use two expressions for something I used a combined one: "Marketing BS"   ;D

My cats may not like the experiment (the always sit outside the door to the workshop and meow when I play with ultrasonics), but I think I can confuse them for a few minutes for science.
Nooo poor cats. If there is not such thing as ... cat ear plugs  ;D put them in a room far away and close the door.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: SenScore.org

There's a very good Firefox Add-On that I use, called Ad-Block Plus.
In short, it blocks ads.
But one very useful side-effect of it is that you can see *exactly* what sites are looked up on each web page. You'd be surprised how many websites are referenced on one single page.

Anyway, there's the "big" 3rd-party advertisers that are on almost every page, google ads, tribalfusion, doubleclick.net and all the rest. Just block these 3rd-party sites and you block most ads.

You know what's interesting about www.senscore.org?
They don't use a 3rd-party advertiser. There are No links to anything else on their page.

You know what that means?
Those ads for nikon aren't just random "it's a camera page so we'll assign it a camera ad" links like you get on place like here.
Those ads for nikon reside on the same website as the scores.

You know what that means?
Nikon are paying that site directly.


nikonfail.

Now, if they are paying for one site they may as well pay for another  ::) (just saying there is an "if' in the beginning of the sentence)

The Hoya HMC will degrade image quality.
Interesting. Have you used HMC Super?

Canon General / Re: Canon's MAP Pricing Goes Into Full Effect Today
« on: November 02, 2012, 03:30:17 PM »
If I want to shoot daylight landscape with tilt-shift lenses and get amazing detail at low ISO's, I'll go D800. 

Except for that pesky 'PC-E 24mm control knob hits the flash housing' issue...

Yeah, except for that!  :)

I 'll put it in another way: If  I want to shoot daylight landscape with 5DMkIII or 5DMkII I would chose TS-E 17 L and TS-E 24 L II  ;D

So if Nikon didn't exist 5DIII would be excellent and now it is not?
And who decides what is the correct number of megapixels?

Well, I never said Canon was not a good camera - only overpriced. And yes, economics 101 tells us that in the absence of competition Canon would command a higher price. But when they are not king of the hill any more, they better price their products competitively.
I agree on that.

What make you think 5D III is "overpriced"? let me me guess....not enough MP compared to D800?

Sarcasm aside, that too. The sensor is one of the most important aspects - that's the major reason 5DII costs 50% more than 7D, despite its speed, AF, etc.

So, if Nikon can offer better DR and similar low ISO performance in a higher MP sensor, what makes Canon think they can initially ask $500 more for their camera?

canon will commit suicide
their products prices are way to high to increase more...
Christmas is coming and instead of lowering their prizes they increase them. I guess you are right. We will see.

  • 1981 Konica AutoReflex TC with 40mm f/1.8
    A few years later got a Sigma 80-200 after a lot of saving (I was a student). Unfortunately this was lost 1987 So:
  • 1988 EOS 620 with 35-105 and 100-300  Still works but the LCD light was disconnected to prevent battery draining
  • 1989 EOS RT and EOS 600 (I liked it a lot!) They need service
    (Their shutter needs to be serviced/cleaned)
  • 1996 EOS 50E (that was plastic and the dials used to brake from time to time)
    Finally broken in 2005 (plastic dial broke and its shutter also has the 600 and RT problem)
  • 2005-2006 2 used EOS1n. They still work fine
  • 2008 EOS 40D Unfortunately it was stolen 9 months later :(
  • 2009 EOS 5DMkII (replaced the 40D)
  • 2012 EOS 5DMkIII I couldn't resist. I also wanted a backup body (OK the 5DMkII is the backup) In addition, I had the impression that my 5DMkII was feeling lonely  ::)

« on: November 01, 2012, 10:20:21 PM »
20-25 f/8 IS for $2666 :))
At least it would be small  ;D

Just because you can't stand that site, doesn't mean there's not good info/posts there.  I can't stand politicians but occasionally they... okay... bad example.  But I think you know what I mean :)

If I get this right, I might delay the replacement of my 5Dm2 and some lenses like the 24-70L.
These were scheduled for this quarter, but perhaps I should "focus" on something else for a while.
The 5Dm2 is certainly good for another year.


That's what I plan to do too.

Me too.
In Europe normally prices for the 5DMkIII range between 3000 and 3500. For example Amazon.de had it for 3050 then lowered it to 2950 and  now it is again 3050. No radical changes. I was happy to find a deal for about 2700euros. Now I have a lot of lenses. In addition I am an amateur and I do not need anything badly (a 500mm f/4L IS II would be nice but ... I'll think about it in 3-4 years...) so yes no more gear anyway.

Actually, Nikon can start (re)naming their cameras as DXO4, DXO800 etc.
LOL! That's a good one.
;D Or DxO can be renamed to Nikon  ;D  ;D
