Lenses / Re: Why does 7D II seem COMPARATIVELY soft with certain lenses?

^^ Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L IS USM marketed in 2008.

It was mentioned by a member of CPS Europe that lenses announced 2010 & newer are designed for high pixel density sensors like the 70D, 7D Mark II, 5DS & 5DS R. All three bodies I mentioned share a 4.1 µm pixel (photosite) size.
Beautiful!  You used the 7DII?
Yes, that's why I shared the images on this thread. ;)

To be honest I wish Canon started offering bodies without AA filters starting with the 50D from 2008 & 500D from 2009 (4.7µm).

I mention these bodies because Nikon came out with with their D800E (4.88 µm & without AA filter) in 2012.

Love, the TC's are just "OK". Nothing spectacular.

Sunday, February 15, 2015 marks the first death anniversary of mother. This also marks the break of my photography fast. I commit to craft photos more than once week here on end.

The Guaiabero (Bolbopsittacus lunulatus) is a species of parrot in the Psittaculidae family, belonging to the monotypic genus Bolbopsittacus and closely related to the lovebirds (Agapornis) and hanging parrots (Loriculus). It is endemic to the Philippines. Its common name is derived from its reputation for eating guavas.

EOS Bodies / Re: After a 50MP camera what is the next breakthrough?
« on: February 13, 2015, 05:50:47 AM »
I want a camera that does not need me to operate anymore.

Something akin to a self-driving car.

So when someone says "you have a nice camera" then it becomes a real complement rather than an insult.

I'd buy it if it looked like a Leica M3.  ::)

Lenses / Re: An EF-M f/1.2 Lens?
« on: February 07, 2015, 09:23:56 PM »
Seeming it is mirrorless and has a shorter flange distance why not be ballsy and make it faster than f/1.0?

If you want to drive sales of mirrorless that's one way of doing so.

Who has a list of L glass released since 2010?

http://www.canon.com/camera-museum/lens/

Go to dpreview and select Canon EF & Canon. It will display a list of lenses from newest to oldest.

I am surprised that medium format cameras do not use CFast.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 5Ds & EOS 5Ds R Image & Video Samples

Per Mike Burnhil, Canon UK CPS said they didnt move to CFast because they dont want to annoy customers. That's why the chasis of the 5DS/R are identical to the 5D Mark III.

Fast forward to 8:20 http://www.fotosidan.se/cldoc/video-interview-canon-eos-5ds-and.htm

Another interesting point is starting with the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lenses announced from 2010-onwards are designed for high pixel density sensors. Tough luck to me then.  ;D

Like you I would love to transition to CFast but who wants to pay $180 for a Lexar 32GB memory card? Yes, it is 3400x (510MB/s read) but still.

I would rather see Canon make the transition to CFast with their Cinema EOS line andlater transition to CFast once $/GB be at par with CF cards of today.

Mike also mentions high pixel density camera makes lousy video cameras.

Again, looking forward to the 5D Mark IV hopefully with 4K, modest MP bump, Sony-level DR and all the bells and whistles in August.

One of the biggest disappointments I have with this announcement is Canon was LAZY and didn't move up to using CFast. You'd think with files that big they'd want to go CFast, which has been a standard for a long time now. Or at least dual CF UDMA7, I mean, come on!

And, what'd be a really neat trick, is now that there is USB3 (yay!), if they were to implement raw video using a computer with SSD(s) to stream through the USB3. Well...crunching the numbers, that wouldn't work. Assuming 30 fps, 64MB per frame, that's 15.36 Gigabit/sec needed. Thunderbolt 2 could likely manage that, but we don't have it on the camera. Perhaps a crop-mode, or an s- or m-RAW format would work though.

EOS Bodies / Re: Euro Pricing for EOS 5DS, 5DS R & EF 11-24 f/4L Revealed
« on: February 04, 2015, 11:48:15 PM »
To put the rumored pricing of the 5DS R in perspective the medium format 40MP Pentax 645D sells for $4,500.

<p>PhotoRumors has posted the prices of the Canon EOS 5DS, EOS 5DS R and EF 11-24 f/4L USM in Euro.</p>
<ul>
<li>Canon EOS 5DS: €3,499 (around $4,000 USD)</li>
<li>Canon EOS 5DS R (no low-pass filter): €3,699 (around $4,200 USD)</li>
<li>Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM: €2,999 (around $3,400 USD)</li>
</ul>
<p>I suspect the USD pricing will be directly the same as the Euro pricing, with the 5DS at $3499, the 5DS R at $3699 and the EF 11-24 f/4L USM at $2999. The rumoured pricing for the EF 11-24 f/4L USM has remained constant since <a href="http://www.canonrumors.com/2014/08/canon-ef-11-24-f2-8l-coming-cr1/" target="_blank">first being revealed in the summer</a>.</p>

EOS Bodies / Re: What will become of the 5D Mark III?
« on: February 02, 2015, 11:24:40 PM »
Hypothetically speaking it can go as low as 16300 HKD. :)

That's hypothetically speaking.

As for Canon still producing it well it be a current body until supplies last.
