Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Review: Zeiss 15mm f/2.8 Distagon
« on: November 17, 2013, 06:30:33 AM »
The Zeiss 15 is a wonderfully sharp Lens, I bought one a while back after seeing some of Sanj's Images with this Lens, love it, but. It's damn heavy, which you can live with, it's manual focus of course, again you can live with and I actually have grown to like Manual Focus Lenses again after buying this lens, but, what just seems dopy, is the non removable (without a lot of very scary effort) dumb assed Hood.

I eventually went and purchased the 17TSE (with the Wonderpana Filter Holder, so now I can use the 17 with all my Lee Filters, Yippee), now very seldom do I take the Zeiss out, I'de love to put the Zeiss 15 into my Underwater housing to replace the Canon 14f2.8 L II, but the dumb assed Hood precludes that. There isn't any doubt though that the Zeiss 15 is a much better Lens in all departments than the Canon 14, except for the dumb assed Hood.

Yeah I know about the lens hood. I was recently shooting underwater and just asked the producer to arrange for the housing, assuming the 5d3 and the Zeiss would fit. But it did not and we all had to wait for the rental house to send the Canon 14mm...

Lenses / Re: Comparing 16-35 to Nikon 14-24 and Zeiss/Leica primes

The problem with Ken Rockwell is comparing zoom with prime
Actually, I think the problem was just Ken Rockwell doing anything :)

I know you joking.

I am always happy when companies innovate and make interesting stuff. I do not see any reason why we should not appreciate their efforts. Really.

Actually, the 6D and 7D2 should be a pretty excellent combo! :)

They are...it is called the 5DIII  :o :P ;D

For photographers who want a cost effective crop camera there is the 70D. I am wishing for a 'mini 1dx'. Will be perfect second camera along with my 1dx for 'good light' wildlife work. And I hope the 7d2 has better IQ than version I starting from ISO 100 itself to 1600. Hope......
Yep, this is the basis for my earlier comment that I am worried that $2k isn't a high enough price to make the 7DII "professional level"....really, I was thinking "mini-1DX."

Considering it would be $900 more than the 70D, there is plenty of room/need for differentiation.  But, "mini-1DX" I'd expect to be on par with the 5DIII in price.  As the quick example, if the 7DII was given 63 pt AF, 10 fps, improvments in sensor technology gave us ~1-2 stops better high ISO noise performance, AND there was improved low ISO noise performance at $2k price point....who would buy the 6D, 5DIII or 1DX? 

Perhaps Canon does go this route, kill the sales of their current FF lineup and release the fabled high MP FF body (3D? 1DXs?) so they'd get sales from the 7DII and 3D/1DXs for 2014 and then refresh the 6D/5D/1D lineup in 2015 with the improved sensor tech.

Maybe....really, that would be great and make everyone very happy....but I am expecting a more modest upgrade to the 7DII at the $2k price point.

Agree. Except even with all these improvements, a crop camera cannot beat the benefits of a full frame. So even if they launch our wish list 7d2, the full frame cameras still have their appeal.

Does anyone know the whereabouts/well being of RPT? He has been missing for a bit now. And has not responded to emails either.
Thx

He's just commented on black and White landscapes, so he's certainly alive and ...., well if not kicking then typing.

Seems that he doesn't want to communicate with you.
Sanjay! what did you do? ;D

Please tell me that "Pro" doesn't mean a built-in non-removable grip.  That would be a deal-killer for sure.
Maybe for you. It's the complete opposite for me. I'll take the built in, fully integrated grip.

Part of the reason the ergonomics of 1-Series bodies is so brilliantly refined is that it's a totally integrated package.

Part of the reason for my post is that I find the ergonomics of the 1-Series worse than any Canon body aside from perhaps the M.  They're too large and they're unnecessarily heavy.  They're simply unusable for me.  I'll take my 5D over a 1-series every day.  In fact, if you give me a 1Dx for free, I'll put it in the basement along with my VCR.

That would not be a very nice thing to do. Just inbox me and I come to collect it. Will give you a non grip camera in exchange.
Btw the 1dx is simply usable to me. :)
