Though none of the lenses have enough DR so you might like to reconsider!  ;D

I kid I kid!

If you need fast zooms +1 for EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS (or the Tamron equivalent without the vibration compensation - it is a sharp lens) otherwise I would say 15-85 or the 24-105...

Also, I went for the 100mm non L as macro lens and never looked back...

Lastly, I have a 70-200 f/4 IS which is a great lens by all means but with the 70-300 L one does not loose much for the 100 mm gain on the long end... IMHO anyway...

Cheers!

EOS Bodies / Re: Need seasoned advice - keep 5D Mark II or NO?
« on: February 09, 2013, 12:20:04 PM »
It's not a question of photography but one of Psychology.
5DII for all purposes will be more than sufficient for a long, long time.
However, the fact that you settled for it and didn't go for the 6D will gnaw at the back of your head for almost as long. Every time you shoot in low light you'd wonder how the 6D would have been great here, and will hamper your focus as the 5DII's AF tries to do its job.
So return it while you can, and get the 6D. You'll forget the price difference much sooner than you'd have forgotten the (perceived) difference in capabilities of the two cameras.

Well said!

Speaking of DR compression; Here's a thought....

Pixel or photosite level "Electronic shutter".

 areas of the sensor with enough light shut off sooner than the areas that need the shutter to be open longer... till you have perfect exposure with reduce DR capturing everything and no banding or gradient issues.

I should patent this and sell it to Sony quick...
LOL

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: D7000 replacement in April...

"In addition to the D7000 successor, which most likely will replace also the D300s, Nikon is rumored to announce a new D4x DSLR this year (the camera may have a different name, we will call it D4x until we get more info)."

http://nikonrumors.com/2013/02/04/more-nikon-d4x-rumors.aspx/#more-53312

D300s was the competitor of the 7D, wasn't it?

Sorry guys, I have not been around for a couple of days so now I see the "D7000 replacement in April..." topic and open, read last two pages without seeing anything about the D7000 or its replacement. Going to read from the beginning to see how the topic developed...

Here's how:

Q: What was the weather like in Stockholm last week?

A: Sunny, and when I underexposed by 4 stops to capture the detail of the sun shining down on the Storkyrkan then pulled up the shadows by 4 stops to see the cobblestone detail of the Slottsbacken, the Canon 5DIII failed miserably with banding and noise, but fortunately I had my D800 with me - and look at this perfect shot!

 ;)

LOL!

I recall you had a spilled coffee issue when reading the "ask something no one knows nor ever thought of nor wondered and wait, Neuro will give you the answer" part (sorry for the misquote but something of that kind), if you recall that post a year ago... I was wondering if you have any solution to it as I seem to have spilled some on the carpet due to your post...  :D

Cheers!

Going to read from the beginning to see how the topic developed but just had to suggest this: Perhaps we should have a "Canon sensors vs those in Nikons" board under gear talk? Or perhaps "Canon bashing" (I for one would go there every now and then for sure  ;D)?

Lenses / Re: How much would you pay for Canon 24-70 f/2.8 L IS
« on: February 05, 2013, 11:41:00 AM »
1999$

+1

EDIT: Actually I would only consider it for an unrealistic €1500-1600

+1 for Win 7

How about ubuntu linux and running LR on wine? I do not have LR so have not tried it myself. Anyone who has experience?

Cheers!

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon's Roadmap for 2013 [CR2]
« on: January 27, 2013, 08:38:43 AM »
I wonder what Nikon's roadmap is and how their competitive launch will compare to Canon's...


Probably a D7000 replacement one could expect, over at nikon rumors news as this one are showing up:
http://nikonrumors.com/2013/01/21/nikon-d7000-listed-as-discontinued-in-australian-retailer.aspx/

I wonder whether they are looking into something more like the 5Dmk3 - D800/e, for the good and bad, does not seem to be aimed at the same market segment and as much as Canon needs a direct competitor to D800, Nikon would need a direct competitor to 5Dmk3... At least the idea comes to mind... :)

Canon General / Re: IS canon 650D going to be discontinued?
« on: January 23, 2013, 08:57:08 AM »
you seem to have a typo in your post.

Your salesman recommended a 600d (t3i) over a 550d. (t2i).

didn't get you with typo thing, sry my english is not perfect.

650D is newer than 600D! As a result, one would expect 600D to be discontinued before the 650D. If your salesman is suggesting 650D will be discontinued and you should get a 600D, that just does not seem accurate.

Alternatively, as a fellow forum member suggested, you might have made a typo mixing the models - perhaps the salesman suggested '600D will be discontinued, it is better to get 650D' or '550D will be discontinued get a 600D'?

Cheers!
