EOS Bodies / Re: Pick between two options for the Canon 7D II
« on: June 28, 2013, 10:36:41 AM »
I don't like those options at all.

ISO 6400 is not really usable on 5D3, so on 7D2? Not gonna happen... I guess this comes down to the definition of "usable". My shooting style is to avoid high ISOs especially when it's dark.

Then the slow burst rate combined with the higher mega pickles... What's the point? Well, if it's a macro only camera then yeah, I'd go with this options just to get more room for additional cropping.

Megapickles? ROFL. Best typo ever.

Why do you say 5d3 not usable at 6400...there's been some truly awesome example online at even 12800 (or am i thinking the 6d?)

I've had no issues with my 5d mkIII shooting very usable images at iso 6400 and highter...

I like mega pickles too...but as to the best typo, go check the 70d spec topic...feature number 3!

the OP edited the typo out, but it is preserved via insert quote  ;D

My 2cents for 7D II:

1. 1D X AF system
2. 10fps
3. Solid body, similiar to 5D III
3. wife etc
4. ISO same as rumor 70D or a bit better
5. Sensor technology same as 1D X  or 5D III - crop size with Dual DIGIC 5+ Image Processors
6. More poweful battery

Wow, that's quite a feature...   ;D
Will this "feature" be the same in all continents or they will be variations depending whether the model is sold, like Japan, EU or USA?    ;D  ;D  ;D

(Just like Kiss/Rebel/ etc...)

┬┐How about this?

20.2 CMOS
Dual Digic 5+
14 fps
Dual CF Cards
etc, etc, etc.
I like your specs but I believe not all are realistic.

Dual Digic 5+  YES
14 fps NO 10fps probably (just like 7D fps rate was less than 1D4's)
Dual CF Cards NO either one or 1CF and 1SD (it will not equal 1DX)

Still, nice specs...

What type of toggle with this have?  Do you think it will go back to the joystick of the 50D and 5D MkIII?  Or will it be the pad in the 60D and 6D?
I bet the joystick will be there. It will have AF 19 points at least so omitting it would cripple the AF somehow...

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II Mentioned [CR1]
« on: June 28, 2013, 07:43:40 AM »
How many years is there a CR1 about a new: 35mm 1.4L and 100-400L  ::)

OK, it's a rumors site but still...

Landscape / Re: friendly reminder!!! Supermoon tomorrow!!!
« on: June 28, 2013, 07:30:31 AM »
Here is my Supermoon shot from the night of June 22nd. I used TPE to calculate where the moon was going to rise. What I didn't expect was just how FAST it rose. Seemed like it took 15/20 minutes to go from the horizon to an angle too high to shoot in relation to any buildings on the Brooklyn side. I only had a 70-200 on me, having a 1.4x or longer lens would have been very helpful in this situation.

Nice shot. I believe however - since the moon is extremely brighter than the bridge - that lowering the highlights to the minimum was not enough. Did you combine 2 different exposures (even from the same raw file)?

Now that you uploaded the pictures I understand the need for APS-C/70-300L/flash/no tripod combination.
But, how about a gorilla pod or a big bean bag (at least for the subset of your pictures you take by crawling...)?

EOS Bodies / Re: Beginning of a new Canon starting with 7D Mk II?
« on: June 27, 2013, 08:27:09 AM »
Would like to see a 7d MK II with AF and metering functionality from the 5d MK 3, if they can do a sensor in the 24mp APS then this will be good and match against the Sony & Nikon as well along with a decent buffer and 8fps this will be a hit.
YES! And since it will be an APS-C model the same AF sensor would cover a lot more of the screen which would be yet another plus.

I think it will feel heavy no matter how you hold it.

Do you have a monopod with a small/light ballhead to rest your gear there maybe?

Reviews / Re: Review - Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS II
« on: June 26, 2013, 02:14:00 PM »
I'm still leaning to one of these:

1. 400mm f2.8 IS II + x1.4 and x2 TC III --  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
2. 300mm f2.8 IS II + x1.4 and x2 TC III -- ;D ;D ;D

I thought you said you were done for this year? Is this next years wish list?

I have met some nice guys and exchanged names and phone numbers. Unfortunately I have also met disgusting professionals!

Now, please professionals DO NOT TAKE ME WRONG. I am not making generalizations in any way. I am just stating the fact (It's a long story...)

Same, previous year I met other people (from different countries) and had exchanged names, contacts and we even went out together that day.

Lenses / Re: $1000 .. what to buy
« on: June 26, 2013, 02:01:48 PM »
I notice you left off the 300/2.8L IS II from your list...
Are you thinking of it as a lighter/smaller alternative to 600 (perhaps with a 2X) ?

Partly.  But primarily for sports, as my daughters get to that point...
You are not thinking of making someone crazy by shooting first with your Canon S100 ps camera and then presenting the 1DX/300mm 2.8 combo after he shows you his "super" digital rebel as THE camera :o ?   (The crocodile Dundee case...)

Third Party Lenses (Sigma, Tamron, etc.) / Re: Samyang 14mm f2.8
« on: June 26, 2013, 01:54:16 PM »
it optically trounces the 14L
The-Digital-Picture site begs to differ: Below are comparisons at f/2.8 and f/5.6.

But could they just have gotten a bad sample of the Samyang?
Have you tried many good copies of 14mm II Canons and you find them worse than Samyang?

Me?  I have never tried either of those.  I am just wanting to know what to buy, at under $750...If I had the "coin" many of you have, I would be paying people to post on this forum for me!  If I hadn't bought a new camera, and a couple of lenses already in the last few months...then I could afford a high dollar wide angle lens.  Of course I would have to just hold it up to paper and let it burn the image on that, because I would have no camera to mount it on...!
Actually I was lucky! I found a used 14mm 2.8L II in a shop in mint condition for 1000 euros less than the price of the new. Then I brought with me some stuff (3 lenses and a battery pack of my stolen 40D) and I deducted a lot. So I got it for 650 euro  :)

I wasn't looking for it. I was thinking too of Samyang 14 but at the price I got the Canon it was a steal!

Then, I took a look at the-digital-picture and found that comparison which shocked me because truth be told many sites said the Sam is very good.

Well, I am not neuro but this can not completely right. He does not have 500mm f/4L IS II, 800mm f/5.6L IS, 200mm f/2L IS, 200-400 f/4L 1.4X.

And - I think - he does not have 8-15, 17TS-E, 24 1.4II.

All true.  I notice you left off the 300/2.8L IS II from your list...perhaps you are aware that that lens is high on my list for a future purcahse?   :)
I have just forgotten it! But quite a coincidence!  :)  Are you thinking of it as a lighter/smaller alternative to 600 (perhaps with a 2X) ?
