EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 7D Mark II Information [CR2]
« on: August 04, 2013, 09:59:19 AM »
Once you owned 5D III, your 7D will more likely sitting in the bag & collecting dust.

Once you owned a 1dx, the 5d3 will look like a children's toy to you. But this is comparing apples and oranges, the 5d ff range is a completely other gear range - you get nearly two 6d or three 7d1 for one 5d3. So for those who'd like to keep their (one!) camera body price well below $2k, it will remain a struggle with Canon to decide either for good af/fps or low light capability.

Show me what your 1D X can do that make my 5D III looks like a children's toy.

I also have both cameras and agree ... although the result of marrying the best features of the two starts to look a bit like another camera they sell ... (OK, the 5D3 has a few extra tricks up its sleeve, in particular AF, but still.)

I do like the 6D for its IQ, the fact it's smaller and lighter, and because on it the 40mm pancake gives a 40mm FOV (relevant to me because I do like the option of such a small set up and there's no EF/EFS pancake in the 22 to 28 mm range).  However I'm finding it VERY hard to part with the 7D.

Once you owned 5D III, your 7D will most likely sitting in the bag & collecting dust - or end up on CL.

I have 2 Lexar 32GB Pro 1000x CF. One on each 5D III. Since photography is just my hobby, therefore, no backup for me. It almost 2yrs, no problem so far. No plan to update these at all.

I also have 2 32GB SD from sandisk. One on my RX1 and other will be used on RX100 II. They are 2-3yrs old. No problem so far.

Get a rebel for now and wait for mrk III. It will be x300 better. With mrk III, you don't even have to lick the shutter button. Just blink your eye, the camera will do everything for you. It even make coffee while owner going through "DSLR for Dummies".

I have so much respect for Canon L lenses and few models high end DSLR. However, when we talk about Canon "NEW" compact cameras, I'm completely loosing interest.

EOS-M / Re: Returning M today...
« on: August 03, 2013, 02:52:58 PM »
Bought EOS M @ $299 through BH. I just sold it on CL for $365. Will replace with Sony RX100 II

Why RX100 II: I did have a chance playing with RX100 II last trip to HongKong, IQ is amazing. No doubt the RX100 II is out perform EOS M from AF speed, IQ, even in low light. Not to mention the body size - much smaller and it's pocketable.

I'm not sure how Sony does it...but lately, Sony introduces great compact cameras to market lately.

My 2cents for 7D II:
1. 51 - 61pts AF system, 10fps, solid body built, wifi,

2. NO NEW SENSOR. Don't expect huge improvement in high ISO - half stop better than current crop models.

I got just back from a business trip - HongKong & China. The humidity over there is really bad @ this time of the year. EOS-M + 22mm works just fine.

Can't say much about Costa Rica

Lenses / Re: Patent: Canon EF 50 f/1.8 IS
« on: July 25, 2013, 09:38:42 AM »
How about light weight and compact size? No, I wouldn't do landscapes at 1.8, but IS gives me the option to shoot in lower light, maybe at a lower ISO or at a smaller aperture for DOF. Carrying a tripod isn't always practical or possible when hiking etc.

Adding IS will not make the lens lighter or smaller.

Maybe not, but the new 24 and 28mm 2.8 IS lenses are still compact and light relative to zooms or their faster aperture equivalents, is this not true?

Most Canon non-L prime lenses are quite out of date. Tech changes fast - smaller and faster. Still, adding IS will not decrease the lens size. I'm sure you recall cell phone sizes 5-7yrs ago. I still believe primary reason buying prime is fast aperture & shallow DOF. IS was introduced to prime due to video feature in DSLR. Again, I can't speak for everybody else. I prefer f1.4 with or without IS. and yet, sharp @ wide open.

Rent 14mm prime through Lensrental. It doesn't cost much at all.

The reason buying prime is big aperture & shallow DOF. Can't shoot people @ 1/13 or so. Wonder who do landscape @ f1.8? If the lens is on tripod, then why IS?

IS on a 50mm? Why?

Because it'll let you shoot static scenes down to probably 1/13 or so. Two stops of extra exposure is a huge deal in low-light situations.
