EOS Bodies / Re: Poll: Would you buy a high MP Canon EOS 5DIV?
« on: September 26, 2014, 09:29:32 AM »
The question is hypothetical and presumes

1) a 5DIV would improve generically on the 5DIII but with a significant MP boost (at least 32MP compared to the existing 22MP for the 5DIII)

2) the price range of such a camera would follow the pattern of the 5D-family (around 3.500$ at launch)
+1 Plus, the poll assumes that Canon will mess with 5D series and increase the MP count instead of improving noise and DR.

+1

x-mas is the best time to buy. I'm sure there will be rebates to x-mas.  If not cpw-street price is awesome to use.

To capture my family special moments

At what point do our wives ask... so you really need all that gear to take family photos?

I'm at 12k-ish... so I'm expecting that conversation to happen any day now.
LoL... ;D
If you can pass the 1st big white,  second and third look the same

Mirrorless has it own special - small, light weight easy to carry around on certain lenses.

I would switch to mirrorless if my kids weren't in sports. For landscape and everyday photos, current mirrorless is good enough for me.

Interesting conclusion, at least some mirrorless camera, e.g. Nikon V3, can shoot at 20FPS with a vary high reported focus rate.  I would think the speed and compactness of mirrorless would be ideal for family sporting events with the DSLR best for landscapes for their IQ and DR.     
Larry, I do not have much experience with Nikon gear. I owned Sony a7, a7r, rx1, fuji X100s. None of these cameras could give me the tracking capabilities like dslr. I'll save my judgements for Nikon mirrorless since haven't touch them.

Dylan, what lenses do you use on your mirrorless body (Sony A7r I believe)?  Do you use a Metabones adapter?
I have fe55mm. I tried adapter for Canon mount, hated it. The fe35mm works and fits very well with a7 series.  Next best fit is fe55mm and iq is really good.

Buy whatever gear that fit their needs and move on. I heard enough about people keep telling they going to switch to Nikon and Sony for the better, still, none have done so.

Talk is cheap, be a man and do it.

Yup, talk is cheap:

...

I don't ever just buy before I give it a real good try. But I'm not just a bag full of words, either. :P I intend to get a solid handle on the state of Sony raw files (and the full range of the consequences of their lossy compression) before I bite the bullet, but even if I can't work the data like I can with a Nikon RAW, it should still be worlds better than Canon data.
Hi,
    Renting also not cheap... :o

    Anyway, I try out the A7R and A7S with metalbones, A7R focusing is really slow in low light and I don't like the heavy shutter... the A7s had better shutter feel and AF in low light is faster, but still not very consistent.

    Enjoy the camera...  ;D

    Have a nice day.

Yeah, I've heard about the shutter shock problem. Part of the reason I'm renting first. It's not all that bad, considering its some $2400 to buy the camera lone, let alone the adapter.

I'll try the A7s at some point, or whatever new cameras Sony releases next year. I particularly want to get a handle on the raw IQ, and the impact of compression. I want my RAW to be RAW...and I don't like the use of lossy compression for "raw" data. I'm hoping it isn't a huge deal, but I guess we'll see.

If you intend to shoot high ISO, then yet a7s. AF is slightly faster in darkroom(more like for me, high ISO shooter).

You seem to like high MP, stay with a7r. BTW, get 2-3 batteries.

One advice for you, stay away from that adapter. It will take all the fun always from mirrorless. Stay with their native lenses.

The title says it all.... after thread after thread becomes arguments that never end, what do you wish people would do?

FF mirrorless about same size as a7 series with pop-up EVF(like rx100 III), battery life 500 to 700shots with pancake lenses - I smell trouble. Even better, about x100s body style......I'm drooling :P

I don't recall running into this issue yet. Have you call Canon yet?
