Canon General / Re: How Soon We Forget!

Well, after playing with some A7S 12mp RAW files, I've concluded that it's lacking resolution, just a bit. For today's highres displays (like 4K) 16mp would have been much better :).

I'm about to jump on a7s wagon because of low, 12MP  ;)

EOS Bodies / Re: No EOS-1D X Replacement in 2014 [CR2]
« on: September 29, 2014, 06:59:19 PM »
Just curious – why would Canon need to replace the 1D-X?

Instead of 41 cross AF pts, about 65 AF pts all cross. About another 3/4 to one fullstop at higher ISO. Otherwise, I agree with you. The X is an amazing camera. We human(including myself) always want better, faster, and more precise. 

I'm sure others will come up with more, but those are what I'm hoping in X II. I don't mind getting more surprises from Canon in X II body.

A big disappointment.

Hopefully, a 5DII will come with some great surprises and soon.

Scott,
Worst case, rent one or two for your up coming trip ;)

I hate review like this. It always push me to get one, even though I don't have a need for UWA yet.

Awesome as always Dustin  :)

Owned it and hated it.

Stay with their FE native lenses. FE55 is awesome. For street and landscape, I think FE35mm and new recent release FE16-35mm f4 OS might be a better choice.

And I'm big into resolution. If I'm gonna take the time to shoot the shots, within reasonable expense (not Zeiss Otus, but Sigma Art, or maybe Canon 200-400 1.4 since there seems to be no alternative) I'd like them to be high res. I tried out my 2x tele III on the 70-200 2.8 II the other night at football, but it clearly is not a long term solution (at least not on that lens).
I hesitate to even post this link, because I shot a lot of the pics with the 70-200 with the 2x tele, and I'm not at all happy with the outcome.   :((

The guy with the 200-400 1.4 is the guy I talked to.

If you shoot sports often and budget is on tighter side, I would suggest 5D III + 300mm or 400mm f2.8 IS II.

This combo will give more adv AF system & faster shutter speed for indoor/night time games. I've seen some great sport photos from 6D shooters, just not sure what is their keeper rate is.

1DX is of course the best body in current Canon line up. However, you going to need reach and fast prime(s) to shoot sports.

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 7D Mark II: More High ISO Samples
« on: September 28, 2014, 01:07:57 PM »
I flipped through the AF guide the other day, and people need to start really seeing how much awesomeness that has trickled down from the 1dX, plus new features. This camera is a sports/bif dream if you ask me. Superb AF coverage, must be the best coverage ever? And all the tuning you can to to the AF in the same way as the 1dX will open a brand new world for people not in the 1d market. I would be over the moon excited if I wasn't in the 1d crowd, and even now I can't wait to have a go.

And the anti-flickering mode for fluorecent light? Are you kidding me? That is a game changer...

It is going to be as huge as the original 7d.

-And buyers, PLEASE do read the AF guide and really understand how to make use of the AF system, because if you don't, you will miss out BIG TIME...

I saw the 7d2 also now can assign different AF settings to the AF-ON button and the *-button, and that is probably my most favorite feature of the 1dX.

Yes, I do realize this thread is about IQ and noise, but that shouldn't be the main reason to buy or not but the 7d2. But you take a fantastic shot with perfect focus in a ridicolous fast pace situation and that epic moment, or would you like a miss focused shot that is superclean with 14 stops of DR? Then buy another camera.

  It's got the functions, but that is it. The AF module on the 1Dx and 5DII are light years ahead of the 7D II. I for one am very disappointed. Just because of that I will never buy one.

What are your expectations for 7D II?

This is where the pros get pay most - creativities & experiences. Something that we can't buy or learn over night  ::)

Seems to me that 1Dx Mark II is coming in 2015. 8)


You mean it is about time to start a rumorthread about the 1Dx Mark II  ;D

After seeing 7D II specs, I think we should  ;)

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 7D Mark II: More High ISO Samples
« on: September 27, 2014, 11:16:57 PM »
I'm impressed too by the results, at 3200 iso images look really clean ! and at 6400 it doesn't look bad too, i can't wait to have it...

ISO 3200 was very good - almost felt like I was viewing an ISO 200 photo, but 1/3 stop later, there's lots of noise IMO.

With current 7D II specs, I think clean 3200ISO is very attractive for crop body. Anything higher & cleaner than 3200 could be a risk for FF world.

I want ff mirror less and mirror less pancakes on my lazzy days - light weight and easy to carry around. An adapter that works with EF lenses will help as second body for others
