EOS Bodies / Re: Multilayer Sensors are Coming From Canon [CR2]
« on: October 08, 2014, 06:41:32 PM »
I hope we get at least a development announcement soon. I've got at least $10k in Canon gear that rarely gets used any more. My Fuji X-T1 is used > 90% of the time now and the two reasons I haven't sold any Canon gear yet are my 400mm 2.8 and hope for something revolutionary in a sensor.

Many would go for 300 & 600 combo. I'm an odd egg in the basket, went with 200mm f2 IS  & 400mm f2.8 IS II combo. So far, so good  ;D

Have had some calibration/AF issues with the 200 f2.0 L lately, after my camera was serviced. So today in the heavy winds, cats&dogs rain, thick fog, I went out to see if I could find some birds to try.

First one here is uncropped (yes they were very close) at f2.0 2500 iso.

Next one also uncropped, f2.0 and 1250 iso.

it seems I have gotten the calibration right this time. Loving this lens again after hating it for a couple of weeks.

Very nice Viggo. Those photos look razorrrr sharp.

Here are some I did this week.  I took the Perrier one in portrait, but added the right section seen in the landscape version in Photoshop.

Wonderful

Thank you.  I just got into this type of photography.  There are some nice shots on this thread.  Here is one I did last night.

Love how you play with background light. Awesome  :)

One more, shot with the EOS 5D Mark II, EF 135mm f/2L, 1/500 s, f/5, ISO 100.

Looks like a healthy dish Neuro

Anyone else get up early? I couldn't get anything very clear here, had to shoot though a veil of thin clouds.

I did...weather was nice in California this early morning

Nice.... I am jealous of your weather :)

Thanks Don.

The shutter speed was on slow side. I was trying to keep it below 12800iso on my 5D III.

I am glad I sold mine last month just before the 7d II announcement. I fetched $5200 for it after using it for over a year. It was and still is an amazing camera, but just seemed like a lot of money tied up into one body and is damn heavy, loud and only 18MP.

Got a 5D III and waiting for my 7D II to arrive.  I think those are a better combo.

Kind regards,
Jason
I'm on the other side of the fence jason. Since the day I got my 1dx, my 5d 3 got used less and less. I like the size and grip of 1dx. It helps when shooting with larger primes and big whites.

I agree with you.  7d 2 spec's looks very attractive for outdoor.

Fuji has decent mirrorless system. Great lens selection. IQ is very good.

Lenses / Re: Selling 200-400
« on: October 05, 2014, 11:17:24 AM »
Im really interested in what you decide to do as I am waiting for the Sigma 150-600 to see how it compares to the Canon 200-400. Obviously its not going to be the same but will the Canon be worth $10000 extra? I dont mind paying if it is but for a lens that wont be my primary Im kinda thinking about the Sigma.. .hoping there is some reviews coming out asap!

As I am gaining experience with my photography and getting older I am realizing I do not need the most heavy or expensive equipment to get the photo. I am sure the focus of the Sigma will be as quick as the Canon in good light. The difference will be in low light only. So if I spend 40 days in 'bush' every year then I will have 80 mornings/evenings. Out of that I will witness something to photograph 20 times in tough light. Out of the 20 I will miss just few shots. I think I am ok with that. (Actually I do not think I will miss ANY.)

F4 is bit too wide for me. I find that many times the entire animal is not in focus. So 5.6 is fine and preferable. And the real world depth of field difference between f4 and 5.6 is negligible.

The main factor is resale value. Sigma may not hold up to its value after 5 years but Canon will.

I think I will sell the Canon and get the Sigma. Mainly because I prefer to work without the extra step of 1.4x switch. I will prefer the continues zoom option without having to wait for the lens to normalize.

Or perhaps I am building all this up as I want to save the 9k. haahaha

I wouldn't worry much about that either. The new Sigma is about $2000. Lets say 5yrs later you decide to sell for $800 to $1000 - still not bad. Just make sure the lens gets good work out, not sitting in the bag and looks pretty ;)

Best wishes sanj

If she doesn't start out with a 1DX, she's going to grow up with a stunted understanding of cameras and a diminished interested in photography.  Besides, the 1 series is famous for its ruggedness.  It should be able to stand up to whatever she can dish out.

LOL.... ;D

Thank you for all your help! I think I am gonna with a 5D III and sell my other camera... I think this is the better solution for me  ::)

Once you jumped into FF world, it will be hard to go back to crop. Don't forget to add one or two big whites to your kit ;)
