EOS Bodies / Re: Canon's Next Full Frame Camera [CR2]
« on: July 17, 2012, 03:11:04 PM »
I heard from a Canon sales rep (he asked not to be named, sorry) that the entry level FF was going to be 52mp, usable ISO 50-204,000 expandable to 816,000, 12fps, weather sealed, 20 steps dynamic range, radio wireless pop-up flash, 124 point auto focus, 4 simultaneous Digic 6+ processors, and will accept lenses from all brands.  US$1,599.  It will only be available in bright pink and lavender.  Late September launch.

True story.

The 5D MkIII sensor, 7D like autofocus, and a pop-up flash (probably with flash control) and it's not an upgrade over the MkII for the same price?. 

if canon would be the only camera maker it sure looks like a good deal.
compared to the rumored D600... well... no.

and you have to understand the different needs.

for me the 5D MK3 sensor has no real advantage.
i shot below ISO 1600 99% of the time.

i shoot landscape, macro and home studio studio stuff.
85% of the time i use the center AF point.

i shot no video.

so why should people like me update to a 5D MK3 or this new FF camera?

from a company point of view it sure makes sense.
but we are individuals here, with individual needs.

Well, it's impossible to please everyone so one must find a system that best suits their needs based on one's current's situation...  For me I see plenty of them...I own a 7D and a complete kit of L lenses (which to me are reason enough to stay with Canon and not consider Nikon).  Camera bodies come and go.

I have a 7D and a am looking to also buy a FF to take full advantage of my current lenses.  The 5D MkIII is over my budget, leaving the 5D mKII as my only choice.  The rumored features of the new entry level FF hit the spot for my needs.  Better autofocus, a sensor with better low light performance, popr up flash with wireless, etc... where do I sign up?.

Don't get me wrong, the 5D MkII is an excellent camera and will be relevant for years to come, but for the same price I'd be all over the new entry level model.  I'd be more than willing to trade off the weather sealing for the added hardware.

I'm almost on the same boat.  What other camera has such proved image quality and top notch performance?.

EOS Bodies / Re: Should I get 7D now or wait for MKII?

7D is great! go for it no questions asked.  New firmaware coming out in a month adds even more functionality.  As others suggested I would highly recommend getting the 10-22, it's the lens I use most of the time.  Since you're planning to eventualy go FF, try to get EF lenses so you don't have to sell a lot of lenses later on, just the 10-22 which is EF-S.  Good luck.

Best camera ever!

I live in the Dominican Republic.  Not sure how it compares to Norway because over here the retailers list the price in body parts.  A 5D mark III retails for an eye, an ear, an arm, and your choice of a leg or a testicle.

Lenses / Re: zoom lense advice

For travel to a crowded city I'd suggest adding a wide angle lens, such as the Canon 10-22.  It's on my camera (7D) 90% of the time even though I also own the 24-70 and the 70-200 2.8 IS II.  If I had only one lens, it would be the 10-22.

Huh? I shoot everything with my 7D and never do any noise reduction in post process, I mainly shoot raw and have never had any problems with noise on ISOs up to 1600... I've printed my pictures on sizes up to 40''x56''...here's a gallery of some of my pics (landscapes, portraits, action, macro, you name it...)

Nice work!

(sarcasm on) But you better zoom in to 300% because I think there's noise and you need a D3s  ;D (sarcasm off)

Thank you!

Really good photographs Trovador.  What lenses and extras do you have in your kit if you don't mind me asking?

Thanks! my "go to" lens is the Canon 10-22, but I also have the 24-70L, 70-200L 2.8 IS II, 100L 2.8 macro, 100-400L and a few other from other brands :) In terms of extras the things I use the most are a Manfrotto tripod/head and Cokin Z-Pro graduated filters.
