Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Off Brand: Nikon Announces the Df
« on: November 05, 2013, 09:03:46 AM »
I'm a big fan of retro style((fuji x100s), but this Df doesn't look appealing at all.

I'm going to wait for Fuji FF mirrorless instead...

Good luck using something like this for a day long shoot  ;D

Some even think that is one "sexy combo" :-\

Sorry, but I just don't see it and will never get it ::)

I will wait for Fuji FF - mirrorless. I wouldn't change anything about Fuji x100s, except body size for 35mm sensor - I'm ok with slightly bigger body size.

That Nikon retro looks  :-\

simply no one wants to buy a digital camera without proper video and LV implementation.
I was hoping this DF thing to be a fully mirrorless design camera , but it seems like just another boring retro looking F mount camera.
so I cannot imagine any one actually wants this , Nikon is wasting its very limited R and D money on something no one wants to see from them.
shame on you Nikon, you should try to come up with something similar to the Sony A7 with better video codec and Nikon One type of very fast shooting capability with proper PDAF.

I might be the odd one, but I don't care about video crap on CAMERA

Lenses / Re: 300 f/2.8 -a big problem
« on: November 04, 2013, 01:03:49 AM »
Well let's face it, this is not a bad level of problem to have.

Years ago I borrowed a 300 f/2.8 series-1 a number of times over the space of a couple of years. It was a truly awesome lens and its performance would stand up to today's glass in almost every respect. All it lacks is IS. But be aware that this lens was introduced in 1987 and may have limited service support these days. Subsequently I bought a new 300 f/2.8IS about six years ago and I'd advise that this is the lens you should be looking for second hand if the budget won't stretch to the recently released 300 f/2.8isII.

Check the history here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_EF_300mm_lens

Depending what it is you're shooting, would it be worth considering one of the greatest "sleepers" in the EF lens range, the 300 f/4is. This lens is incredible, pin sharp wide open, light to carry, quick AF, takes 77mm filters and very moderately priced.

Hi pwp,
I haven't try v1 or f4 version. However, I did get chance shoot with 300 f2.8 IS II + 5D III. AF is super fast(without TC of course). To me, IQ is better than 70-200 f2.8 IS II, might have to do with 300mm compression. I have no problem shooting this lens without mono/tripod.

Although I haven't try it yet, many claimed this lens works really well with TC III (x1.4 and x2). So having 300mm @ f2.8 IS II with couple TCs is not a bad idea for those on tighter budget(like me).

The number one reason holding me back is, I don't use this 300mm often. I hate to spend large amount of money on a lens that just sit in the bag. With 2 kids (2 & 5yrs) and busy work schedule, I'm not sure when I will be shooting wildlife & surfing etc...

The story will cont...never end

It's a solid set though :)

I never did believe in DXO..I love my 5D3..but unfortunately, it started getting to big and heavy carrying it around with the 24-70II all the time.
Sad to say. i was hoping Canon would release something as good but lighter..i even bought the EOS M.
The last 6mths, i never touched my 5D3 at all and always went for the EOS M instead.
Over the weekend, i finally made the big move..i sold the 5D3, sold all my lenses, all my flashes and pre-ordered the A7R.Don't get me wrong, i still think the 5D3 is the best camera in the world, it's just not the camera i need.

If you do still shooting, I doubt this move would harm you. I have 2 young kids, therefore, my 5D III + L lenses will cont. to be used next 4-5yrs.

I carry x100s and my wife uses her RX1 when we take the kids out. Yes, I do love the size of those camera.

I want to be convinced. It has yet to happen. I would love nothing more than to gather enough data to be convinced that I should in fact lay down my hard earned cheese for the new Sony body.

All I have seen throughout all these threads are people that either have no experience with the Sony sensor, or do via the d800/e but have yet to show samples of anything that exhibits a quality that cannot be had with a dslr from any other company.

My tiny RX1 would kick 5D III A** in still shooting...PERIOD.

How often you hear people talk crap about a product that they haven't touch?

Not everyone has the money or the inclination to buy and shoot with a fixed lens FF. That said, I doubt whether given two comparable images one would be able to tell which image is from which camera.

I wouldn't say that JR ;)

Raw file from RX1 helps ALOT in PP compared to 5D III. Especially the bad metering shots which I got those quite often ;D

I wouldn't buy A7 IF the RX1 performs @ ave level.

I would say that is a fair assessment.  The Sony sensors would give you more latitude in post processing. But then,  I say speaking of properly exposed and processed images from the cameras.

BTW,  how did you find the metering in the RX1?  The copy I tested seemed to unexpose most of the shots by almost a full stop.

JR,
There should be a display button, you can read all info - shutter, aperture, ISO and camera histogram etc...

Exactly my thoughts and point that I was trying to get at.

Every system has it's pros and cons. I think we can all agree that canon is behind on some level with respect to sensor tech. However, I only wanted to point out the fact that there are lots of people in here making big statements about how bad canon is, or how their IQ is being trounced that probably couldn't identify images taken from one system or the other. The sample image provided by Dylan is a perfect example of that.

This photo was taken inside Chuck e Cheese(lighting is not that good), she was riding on of those "rocking car" moving back and forth. Original raw was quite bad, still, the final photo came out in decent shape.

Bottom line is bigger & better sensor(sony) will help A LOT in PP. Many of us(canon shooter, including me) have hard time accepting it though.

EOS Bodies / Re: Patent: A Pellicle Mirror by Canon
« on: October 31, 2013, 06:02:40 PM »
Is this going to make the body smaller to compete with the mirroless systems?
Listen, Canon... if you're reading...unless its going to make OVF better and not just smaller... don't waste your time. Unless you're going to cram more tech into the current bodies...

Think of it this way... not everyone wants small mirrorless cameras... its small and its cute, but thats about it.
Its like a Mini Cooper, not everyone wants one... similarly not everyone wants a Hummer either, but there is no point in making your entire product line into a mini cooper. If anything be like Toyota, have the yaris, corrolla, camry, RAV4, 4Runner, etc.

Wrong. Image quality is everything. If cameras can be made tiny without losing IQ, then go for it.

Who wants to drag around on big heavy bulky S___ if it isn't really necessary?

The only reason to why I'm still shooting DSLRs is because of the IQ. Sony's new A7R (tiny FF body) might replace my canon bodies permanently.

Until your subject running ;D

Can't wait for my a7 + zeiss 55mm to arrive.

Lenses / Re: Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 Mark I vs Mark II
« on: October 30, 2013, 07:48:30 PM »
I had v1 prior my v2. AF speed is faster and IQ is sharper with v2.

If budget is not an issue, try to get v2 in x-mas time. I got mine last x-mas at BH for less than $2000 free shipping.

If budget is tight, v1 still an excellent lens in this range.

Canon 50mm 1.2L @ f/1.4

Thanks bchernicoff for the comparison.

The Sigma seems to be sharper. 50L has better color and contrast - better background.
