I have to ask, what's the point of the mirrorless camera if it used EF lenses? The 6D isn't that much bigger than the A7, and they could probably shave some size off the next one if they wanted to.
With the lenses she already has, I think a newer camera is a better gift. IMHO.
I try to set realistic prices, rather than wishful ones. That's why they usually sell in minutes when I list them on ebay.
Anyone wanting to buy that 50mm f/0.7 IS lens shown on my profile, make me a offer
I'm in Australia, I'm expecting $2500+ AU$ for this lens ... I'm totally ok with that ... check it out .. it's a great lens, even before the reviews I'm sold.
Well it just doesn't make any sense if it is made in japan. Basically they make it in japan, send it to he u.s. and then send it back and it somehow gets $400 cheaper. And if it was 2 weeks ago when the yen was stronger the price difference would have been $800. Seems like Canon USA learned from the market and Canon Japan is just acting the same as always.
I think the optical performance specs will be a significant improvement. What would be the point of a new version if it weren't? Just saying.
My copy of v1 is quite sharp. I doubt the new one will be significantly sharper (perhaps I have a particularly good copy). What it will have is greatly improved IS, lens coatings and (hopefully) weather resistance. The slotted hood for filters is also intriguing. Though I'm not particularly interested in upgrading, I will keep an open mind.
My lens is quite good and others have noticed the fact. I think it's more about techniques and lighting. This is at f6.3 ISO 200 on a 5D III (click on the photo for a larger size)

Wow! Fantastic shot Keith
WOW...this whole thread has turned into Stephen Sondheim's song: "Send in the Clowns"...well maybe they're here.....
I think Neuro had a similar experience
Sort of...but at the start of that experience, I was the guy using the iPhone, having it explained to me by the guy with the Rebel body and 55-250 that I needed a 'real camera' to have any hope of a good picture (of course, that was before I pulled the 1D X + 70-200 II out of the bag at my feet).
Hmmm.. i can´t trust in your words - the guy ( nda ) told us HE used the 1DX - and i did not see any Bag at your feet - so somebody does not tell the Truth ?
I was referring to an incident from a couple of years ago.
He was joking...
I am so confused....
In this post http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=23181.msg451635#msg451635 you don't mention having a 1d although you do mention having just about everything else???
Maybe you just picked it up in the last 13 days...
Anyways, you are what scares me about photography. People with your attitude, are what STOP people from grabbing their gear and heading out to capture the things around them.
And do you feel sufficiently superiour now?
Why do you care what other people use? If he is happy with the Ipad, great.
