Lenses / Re: Sigma vs Zeiss vs Canon
« on: April 15, 2014, 11:48:31 AM »
But but what about the people who want a good quality 50mm and are willing to pay appropriate money?

And don't you think lots of people will buy the Sigma?

I think the Sigma 50/1.4 will be pretty popular. 

We've seen Canon recently bring out several new EF non-L primes with IS (24/28/35), and I expect we'll see an updated 50mm with IS soon.  The IQ of those new lenses is quite good (compare the 35/2 IS to the Sigma 35/1.4 Art, for example).

That would be super. And with Sigma setting new standards, Canon will have to beat it. Then we will all get a super duper lens.

When I used the word appropriate, I was thinking Zeiss.

:) :) Also comparing it with the Zeiss… I think from f2 onwards the Sigma corners look better!! And here is the comparison with the most expensive Canon 50mm…. http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/ISO-12233-Sample-Crops.aspx?Lens=941&Camera=453&Sample=0&FLI=0&API=0&LensComp=403&CameraComp=453&SampleComp=0&FLIComp=0&APIComp=1

Looks WORSE…
One other point: Why should Canon not update its lenses for >20 years while others are doing so without having the might of Canon? Does Canon not want its customers to have better? Am thinking…

EOS-M / Re: Canon EOS M3 in Q3 of 2014?
« on: April 15, 2014, 09:49:19 AM »
I have been using mirror less and EVF now for 3 years. First with the Fhji X100 and now XE2. I just LOVE the EVF. Mirror or no mirror has no bearing to me. But I love the IQ, lightness and the benefits of EVF big big time.

6D Sample Images / Re: Shooting in Namibia with the Canon EOS 6D

You know, I like the pictures, especially the two of the dunes, the one with predominantly sky (and what a beautiful sky!) and the silhouetted one that looks like it was taken in the late afternoon.  But have we become so sensitive to anything negative that someone simply expressing their opinion on the quality of one's work causes such a backlash that forces the poster to remove his comments?  Are we only supposed to post if we have something positive to say about the images?   While what sanj said may not have been that constructive, neither is "pretty images" or "beautiful shots".  In fact, I'd argue that what sanj said is more constructive than simple appreciation.  It allows one to think about what could be done better, if the composition was optimal, if the lighting was right, etc, moreso than any simple compliment.

If you are familiar with sanj and his work, you will understand the level of constructive input one can expect of him. I wouldn't have made the same comment towards anyone of lesser caliber. I am sure he might add something constructive if he has the time, and we all can benefit from it.

Also no one could forced him to remove his post. I admire and respect his voluntary gesture, and think it was very big of him.

No no nothing big. I was blunt and that is not good. I agree that just saying 'not great' without explanation is not that nice. I know Namibia so well and know what it has to offer.... I know CR guys are super photographers.... When I saw the post that they are in Namibia I was excited to see their pictures.

I am guessing that they are saving the best for later… CR talent and Namibia beauty combo is going to hit us hard!

With all due respect I would expect better photos from you.

With all due respect I would expect more constructive criticism from you, with your experience in photography and cinematography, teaching workshops and shooting in Africa.

You right. Wrong of me. Removing my comment. Apologies.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Not sure which Canon body to get
« on: April 07, 2014, 04:08:54 PM »
For the uses listed, the 6D is the better choice, budget permitting. 

6D

I was going to say +1, but 6D + 1 = 7D, and that's not what I mean.  ;)

Technical Support / Re: I was so mistaken!

Focal length and aperture are lens properties and the lens does not change no matter what body you put it on!
 
There are a ton of confusing articles that cause confusion  because of the terminology used.  People will glance at that title and become convinced that its true.
 
Where the confusion comes in , is that some assume the same lens to subject distance, while some assume the same composition (move the camera further away).
 
If you move the camera further away to get the same angle of view as FF, then the depth of field is different.  If you keep the camera at the same distance, then the angle of view is different.
 
The focal length and lens aperture never change.

I though so too. But this guy seems to be proving me wrong.

Strange that we suddenly have quite a few first time posters asking the documents to be published or claiming that they've had problems with their gear. :-\ :-X

I do not find an issue with that.

<p>We’re not sure whether or not we’ll post the rest of the internal documents we have in our possession. If you think there’s value in us doing so, <a href="http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=20341.0">please sound off in our forum</a>.</p>

This is a little like the "friend" that has info about your wife's infidelity and is happy to tell you he has the info, but not sure he wants to actually tell you.

Get serious CR Guy, either you have the info, or you don't, you decide with advice from your legal counsel to share the info, or don't.

There's no question anyone that's ever owned a piece of Canon gear wouldn't want this info.

Basically it's called "piss or get off the pot", the whole basis of your starting a thread on this is demeaning, to you.

Well said. If CR does not publish this info I will feel totally let down. Besides why is the site taking itself so seriously? If it publishes known information, what is the issue? I sometimes wonder if CR is even looked at by Canon.
