The year 2017 is already near to be a turnaround in the market. However, if canon wish, you can take the second place in mirrorless. Just launch M3 Dual Pixel AF and viewfinder, and a Rebel SL2 mirrorles.

Frankly I believe that full mirrorles frame has a very small demand. Note that Leica does not even appear in the chart, even if they already manufacture mirrorles full frame before everyone else.

When I look at mirrorless world: 4/3, X series, Samsung and EOS-M etc... Non of these systems can be pocketable. The size of A7 series is about the same. However, the IQ of FF is just so much better.

Photography Technique / Re: Best Place to order good quality prints?
« on: January 30, 2015, 08:29:02 PM »
I'm using  Pixma Pro-100. I love the look from Canon Pro Platium PT101 paper. I recently ordered 10 boxes from BH. Although printing at home might be little more, however, be able to see the prints up front is well worth it. The combination of Pro-100 and Canon Pro platinum paper is better than Walgreen and Target.

EOS Bodies / Re: POLL: How many mp do you want anyway?
« on: January 30, 2015, 03:36:18 PM »
I voted for 20ish MP. It's more than enough for my needs. However, the world is not perfect. Canon goal is to make $, having higher MP bodies can generate more $. I'll look forward to see their high-ISO bodies.

I'm bad with drawing. Photography helps me to capture moment likes this:

We were separated at birth.  I'm awful at drawing as well... I tell people I have an artistic soul, but no artistic talent... so this is my outlet.

LOL... ;D

EOS Bodies / Re: More About the EOS 5DS & EOS 5DS R
« on: January 30, 2015, 01:38:24 PM »
Canon has not earned their long term position on top of this market by being stupid. So even though there are lots of information we still need to see about these cameras, I am confident that for all of us who want a high resolution, high DR, low noise body, we will get it this time. (By the way, I am sometimes regarded as a bit optimistic ...)

I believe/hope this body will be the perfect compliment to my 1DX, which I expect to keep for action, birds and wildlife. My 5DIII will be for sale some time during the weekend.

+1...for different reason on my end :)

FF mirrorless with pop-up EVF = compact & higher IQ  ;)

Lenses / Re: Practical use of the ef 50mm 1.2L
« on: January 29, 2015, 09:33:50 AM »
It's quite simple:

1. AFMA @ your fav. distances
2. Shoot from f1.2 to f2
3. Shoot from f1.2 to f2
4. Shoot from f1.2 to f2
5. Shoot from f1.2 to f2

Sold mine last year. I do miss it sometime.

@ OP

If DSLR is still your thing, I would stay with 1DX, 24-70, 70-200 and 85L II for that special moments. I'm sure you already know what 1DX can do. 1DX II is more likely be up north $7k+.

I'm still carry my RX1 around. It's great light weight camera. I do wish for EVF though. Rumor RX1 II with curve sensor is right around the corner. I hope it will come with pop-up EVF like the RX100 III.

I would have stuck with my point n shoot and saved $30K in gear
LOL, I got the red ring fever, then the 5D diagnosis, then the big white infection, and finally the 1D dose of death.

I could probably do a lot more with a P & S with the things I've learned along the way :)

LOL....good one mackguyver ;D

To be honest. If I ever decide to give up my big whites, I would rebuild my gear with FF mirrorless. Hoping by then Fuji would have FF same body style like x100 or xt1 series.

Until then, it's hard to give up the beefy 1dx and 200mm f2 IS

interesting approach... ???

More DR for Canon. Better AF speed for Sony mirrorless?

My 6yrs will be joining golf team next month. There are two options come to mind

1. CPW-street price 600mm II
2. Cheaper way - 7d II + current 400mm f2.8 IS II

EOS Bodies / Re: Big Announcements Coming Next Week [CR3]
« on: January 27, 2015, 01:45:53 PM »
The MOST important factor for Canon to gain ground in mirrorless world is EF adapter to mirrorless. If they can come up with adapter with decent AF speed, better than current ones on the market, I think that will give Sony, Fuji etc... good run.

Enlighten me on why they need an (EF adaptor to mirrorless) "adaptor to mirrorless with decent AF speed"?

In what way does the current EF-EOS M Mount Adaptor affect "AF speed"? And how would you improve it?
Or are you talking about some other adaptor?

For Canon shooters, standard EF and L lenses are as good as gold. These lenses can still be used with EOS-M system with an adaptor, however, AF speed becomes slower.


The adaptor doesn't make AF slower though does it?
It is the EOS M body that has slower AF.  All the adaptor does is pass through the signals, doesn't it? It is just electrical contacts.
I can already put my EF and EF-S lenses on my EOS M.  I don't need a new adaptor for that.
What I need is a new EOS M AF system that focuses them quicker.

I will repeat, in what way does the current EF-EOS M Mount Adaptor affect "AF speed"?  (I am actually interested to know, as I am not aware of it.  Not keen on having to buy another adaptor as well as a new M!)

We all know current EOS-M AF speed is not the best in mirrorless world, so, let's skip that for moment.

The EF-M lens adapter kit not only provides electrical contact, it also provide proper fitting between the EF and EF-S lenses to the eos-m.

I've tried 70-200 f2.8 IS II + adapter on eos-m Vs native 22mm. AF speed is not the same. Why? I can't tell you.

Neuro confirmed his adapter + L lenses is faster then native 22mm. Maybe, other members can give their feedbacks.
