there seems to be an IS switch at the top for the 24-70. The AF-MF switch has already been seen, so what the button at the top that we cant see? IS
It seems to be a zoom lock, otherwise they usually combine two switches together just like the other two

Little strange that the 24-70 seems to have a 82mm filter ring  :o
The new Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 VC also has a 82mm filter ring.

It's a good sign that Canon starts to update their non-L primes

Three Canon lenses photos were just posted in a Chinese photo forum, source is from a Japanese website
Link: http://digicame-info.com/2012/02/ef28mm-f28-is-usmef24mm-f28-is.html
Canon EF 28mm f2.8 IS USM
Canon EF 24mm f2.8 IS USM
Canon EF 24-70mmm f2.8 II

It's very strange that 28mm and 24mm wide angel prime lenses have IS, any idea??

by the way, DxO has posted a canon g1x comparison with new nikons

except I don't care about the nikons, what's interesting is that the g1x has 10.8 stops of dynamic range.
which sucks. it does even worse than the last consumer cameras - that have the same pixel density.

so I don't think the new 5 will be anything special at all.
what a disappointment.

let me think about canon for a moment:
- they had USM, now everybody does
- they had good AF, now Nikon has better AF
- they had HD video, now everybody does
- they had IS, now everybody does
- they had resolution advantage, now they don't
- they never matched DR, AND THEY STILL DON'T??
Please don't take DxO marks too seriously, check these marks:
Nikon D5100 is 80
Leica M9 is 69
Sony Nex 7 is 81
Canon 5D mark II is 79

I think they always favour to Nikon or Sony sensors

I just got a rumor from a Chinese photo forum, there will be a New Model(not an upgrade model from current one)to be announced in March, it just said it will sit between 5d and 1d! And the specs are great(it didn't mention the details), but the price will be much more expensive than the 5d mark ii!

I dont know how reliable the source is!

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mark III Brief Specs? [CR1]

As a landscape photographer. if Canon dosen't get off their arrogant position and give us some info on the
 1DS-IV, I for one am off to the Nikon D800 (36MP). I'll keep my 1DS-III as a backup. I don't need another PJ camera, but I would like a 40MP+ camera.
Well, I think it's too early to get any info of 1ds iv,at most you will hear some rumors from other sources, but they won't be solid!
From Canon?? Their new flagship is not on the market yet and you want some info of the next flagship model??
Like other said there are some brands do offer 40mp+ cameras, if money isn't the problem!
Or just go for Nikon!

A mere 22MP output would be incredibly disappointing for me, despite how great the rest of it will turn out. It would make me drop my plans of upgrading to the 5D Mark III entirely. Unless of course it has 18+ f-stops of dynamic range.
Well, it cannot satisfy everyone

Here's my "top secret" leaked spec list.

The 5DII replacment body will be:
Black or black-ish
Take still pictures, and probably video
Will most likely not use film
If digital, I have it on good authority the sensor will be larger than m4/3, but smaller than 645
Feature Auto-Focus
Will probably be EF mount
Will almost certainly be branded as Canon
Might have some type of removable flash memory based medium for picture storage
Will prominently feature button(s) <-note the plural, for key functions like taking a picture or changing setting

You heard it here first folks...   ::)


Any other news that are in the "rumour" department should NOT be believed. This post should be a CR0 as someone has put it. never believe in rumours.

It's canonrumors.com not canonnews.com.
Well Said!!
Then let's hope Canon can release a 8-600mm F2.0L IS weight less than 350g cost $500 ;D ;D

EOS Bodies / Re: The Canon 5D line and AF...
« on: January 27, 2012, 12:31:54 AM »
And this "the 5D was never intended for sports" argument is B.S.

I very much beg to differ! I think its been clear since the 5D that Canon is purposely positioning the 5D line to fill other markets, and they are intentionally protecting the market segment for their 1D line. Its not surprising, its expected, and responsible for the company to do that as well. The advanced AF features of the 1D line are incredibly expensive to design, develop, and manufacture. A single high precision diagonal cross-type sensor is no simple feat, and when there are 20, 40, or 60 of them in a system, that definitely increases cost. They need at least one market segment to help fund those advanced features, and the market segment that most needs them is the logical choice.

So yes, I strongly believe that the 5D was NEVER intended for sports. If it was, it would either be much more expensive, or the 1D sales would have disappeared.

Just the way the D700 and D300 and D300s made the D3, D3s and D4 disappear right?  Different companies but just saying.
Cannot believe someone is still saying"5D was Never intended for sports",so anything more than 9 point AF is intended for sports??? :o :o :o
Then Nikon d3000, d5000, d80 and d90 are all for sports(11 point AF)
Then Nikon d7000 is for super sports(39 point AF)
Then Nikon d300, d300s, d700, d3, d3s and d4 are for Mega sports(51 point AF)

Most of us are not insanely craving for a 1DX focus system not even the 1Ds Mark III's. We just want something close to the 7D's, isn't that too much for a $2500 camera which Nikon can get it done around $1500?????
Remember this 9 point AF was introduced in 2004 on 20D(if I am not wrong), then Canon used it on 20D-60D, 400D-600D, 5D and 5D Mark II(with certain updates of course, but still the basic is the same).
Don't We Deserve Something Better In 2012 Before THE END OF THE WORLD ;) ;)

Sorry for my poor English, I am a Chinese
