Lenses / Re: Who is going to buy the 11-24 f/4L?
« on: February 04, 2015, 06:32:21 PM »
MTF charts will lead the way.

Current 16-35 f4 IS is good, but 11mm uhmm ::). You can always shoot @ 16mm with 11-24, but you can't shoot 11mm with 16-35mm. I know PBD will give me some S**** with this comment, perspective ;)

I recently sold my 5DIII to pay for a Sony a7s, which I use along side my a7r (and, much less often, my 6D).  If Canon ever makes a FF mirrorless camera that's at least as good as the a7 line I would likely buy one, but until then I doubt I'll buy another Canon body.  (Keeping the lenses, though....)

Since my wife doesn't want to give up her(was mine) RX1, I recently pickup an a7s as well. I rented it last Sep, I'm amazed with high ISO. It's great little camera with fe 35mm. attach.

EOS-M / Re: First Images of the Canon EOS M3
« on: February 04, 2015, 02:24:20 PM »
for all those who find the EOS M3 ever so *ugly*, there is a much more "elegant, flashy, glitzy, smooth, sleek, cool, apple-like, totally premium" alternative available ...

 ;D

*Oh so pretty*. Carved from one solid block of aluminium. The Leica apple of all mirrorless cameras. But functionally it's *pretty much* where the Canon EOS M was before it got the first Firmware update.  ;D

Looking at today ICL mirrorless systems, most HOT selling systems have built-in EVF. In fact, their EVF is getting better and better each day.

Actually in japan the hot selling ones are without the EVF and usually based upon discounting and not on EVF.

PEN E-PL6, E-PL7, EOS-M/M2, NEX-5T, Pentax Q7 are about the top 10 sellers doing a look a through the top 40 cameras sold in japan.  Odd. Not one in the top 40 with an EVF.

Top selling MILC in amazon usually is determined more by discount than by EVF.  United states, NEX-5TL is the top selling MILC with a 43% discount.  Japan the E-PL6 with a 56% discount is the current best seller.  Amazon.de - A5000 with a 32% discount is the biggest seller.

Fuji X-T1/E1? not even on the radar for sales (actually Fuji isn't at all). A series from Sony? almost every other full frame camera sells more.

Sorry - I'd love to see where you are getting your sales stats that states the "hot selling systems are with EVF"

It calls "google"

so basically you got nothing.

got it.

When you reduce a $700ish camera to $299, of course, it becomes high demand.

One of hundreds in google: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2364044,00.asp

"Will you replace your old 1dx/5d3" ==> No, even the price at $3K. Apple Vs Orange

I was waiting for someone to say this :-) but I included the 1dx in the poll explicitly nevertheless as maybe some people bought it because it has the "best" sensor and now go for the 5ds as they don't really need a machinegun dslr.

I edited my original comment. Even at $2k, I wouldn't replace 1dx. I would add it though, just for the 50MP bragging rights  ;D

I just bought the 1DX and I`m really happy with it, it`s an awesome camera:)
Here is a couple of shots I took a few days ago:

Congrats.

Great shots. I like the 1st photo - great action. Go easy and that shutter  ;D

HI guys!

From today's outing, loving the weather now! One Godox 360 in a ProFoto Octa 3', sun as edge. I was thinking about using a CTO gel to warn the flash to match the ambient, but I find the cooler light from the octa to look cool with the warmer sun, when used as edge.

24-70 II @ 2.8 1/2000s iso 100

Great shots Viggo. I really like the 2nd

Optional EVF will take away the compactness of mirrorless...

Not sure why Canon didn't go with pop-up EVF ::)
no hotshoe in that, also no ILC mount. not much of a difference  there now is it? an ILC mount takes a considerable more volume internally, and losing the hotshoe would be huge IMO.  Not to mention that canon's external one is tilting - far more practical. and the M3 has more actual external controls than that.
I doubt they can't.

At least something like this.
and that's alot bigger than an M and has a piddly 16:9 screen that blows for photography.  does teh smaller A5000 have an EVF? the A5100? any of the PEN's? the X-A1/2? no? think there's a reason? why yes.. they are probably .. gasp. SMALL?
Both EOS-M and a6000 are not pocketable cameras. Shooting in the afternoon without EVF...uhmm ::)

I have one full spectrum M that I use predominately for IR.  that only gets used in the brightest of sunny days (the only time you can actually really shoot IR).  with MAX brightness; it works.  have you actually tried one?

and just because they are not pocketable to you - doesn't necessarily make it so that people want bigger cameras.

so yeah, your premise that they could add an EVF without changing the size - still think that?  they will have to add at least around 3/4"  to the width and also gimp the LCD.

if you really want that - get a sony?

I’m not lucky enough to own “full spectrum M”. However, in the last 2yrs I had bought, used and sold EOS-M, x100s, A7, a7r and RX1. I'm well aware the sizes and weights of these cameras. I’m aware of not having EVF is become real issue.

Looking at today ICL mirrorless systems, most HOT selling systems have built-in EVF. In fact, their EVF is getting better and better each day. I’m glad to see M3 has exp-comp dail – which was missing in EOS-M and M2.


“so yeah, your premise that they could add an EVF without changing the size - still think that?” ==> Let’s NOT put words in my mouth. The pictures were just to show how built-in EVF could be included.

“if you really want that - get a sony?” ==> If I want the best mirrorless system today, Canon is not my 1st choice. In fact, my A7s is on the way home.

At least something like this, just to stay compact. I seriously DO NOT understand why external EVF :-\
