I just spent an hour on Google checking out Norway. It is on my bucket list now.

He should not have done what he did.

You should not have a 3ft drop where the delivery was made. Reduce the drop or put some padding where packages may drop in future.

Congratulations on your new lens.

Thank you Coldhands. I was thinking the same. Am attaching version without ANY chroma or Vibrance enhancement.

Hi.
Sometimes a photographer takes a pictures and finds it interesting and needs a second opinion on post processing. I am at that stage on this photo.
Am attaching unprocessed and my version. Pls advice. Any pointer is welcome.
THANK YOU!

Back to the original question: Does Canon really deserve this?

Well, today is Black Friday. I have seen numerous papers and web sites full of recommendations. Some dedicated to photography.

One independent magazine, Lyd og Bilde, which is read by lots of people, both as a magazine, on their web and through Norway's biggest newspaper, just published their list of recommendations, ranging from compact to pro cameras, in 7 groups. For the first time ever (as far as I can remember) there is not one single Canon product listed. Nasty sales figures tend to follow advice like this.

So Canon, you're receiving some punches, because you deserve it. Make sure you fight back while you're still standing ...

This is not good. But if they do not list 1dx in their 'pro' list then I do not think their list is of any substance. Hmmm.
They only list one body alternative pr. group.

Could I request you for the link? Would love to know which 'pro' camera do they recommend.

Love the first one

Sony entered into the digital camera market at the same time as the 5D Mark II was released. The evolution of Sony's products since then has been dramatic and their lineup/quality has far outpaced that of Canon.

That depends on how you define quality.  Also, you certainly cannot say that about their lenses (well, I suppose you could, but you'd be wrong).

They already have sufficient lenses (NICE lenses) for most general photography. Yes, before you say it, they do not have a 17 ts or a handhold able 600mm. "Friendly"

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: For 1dx owners

For me, a MUST have improvement is 1stop better in high ISO with 18 -20MP. Additional AF cross points and other features are just bonus.

Anything higher than 30MP, I'm out. I don't care about 4k, GPS, WiFi, video etc....I do hope Canon would release a high MP body for landscape and studio shooters. They can call it 3D, 5D4 or whatever, anything except 1DX II.

I agree with most, current 1DX is so DAM good A-Z.

1 stop better high ISO, based on recent history, will take at least 2 more generations.

Congratulations!
I would have bought the Sigma.  :P

EOS Bodies / Re: Another 50mp FF DSLR Mention [CR2]

I see...so, a blurry shot with more DR has better image quality than a crisply focused shot with less DR.  Right.   ::)
See, with focus, there's this ring around the middle of the lens that lets you adjust the focus. I've yet to find the ring around a Canon DSLR that lets you adjust DR.

dilbert, there's an implicit assumption in your comment: you assume that everyone's shooting needs and style are comparable to yours.  Many people rely on AF which has generally been superior in the Canon line.  I've not used the D810, but most reports indicate that it's much improved.  This should tell you that even Nikon shooters wanted better AF with their Sony sensors.

For someone who shoots moving subjects and relies on AF, no amount of DR will make up for it.

For someone who shoots still life, landscape, architecture, etc, no amount of AF or DR will make up for lack of needed lenses.

Do the above statements reflect your personal experience with photography?
Or did you canvas other people?

Question to you, dilbert: do you ever shoot moving subjects?  Do you MF everything?

Of my last 3 outings to take photos totalling 7 days of photography, MF comprised 100% of the shots I took and quite often I'm sitting there calculating the DoF that I want vs the aperture and zoom so that I know what distance to focus at.  Now if Canon still had the A-DEP feature on their camera then I'd be using that, but it is gone.

In my lifelong outings to take photos totaling 100s of days, MF comprised 1% of the shots I took and quite often I am busy taking SHARP pictures, catching the moment, enjoying the setting and not wasting time over tables. Having said that, yes I would prefer better low ISO DR in Canon cameras.

The link to hidden camera came on its own! I did not do that.
