EOS Bodies / Re: Hugely Disappointed In 5D III Price
« on: March 02, 2012, 02:03:07 AM »
I understand what are you saying.... but if 5D3 was with 19 AF points (same as 7D) 4.9 fps, one card slot and others $3500  have been a high price.

Many of us have complained about poor AF , slow fps, and others in the 5Dmk2.... NOW canon have solved almost all those problems, AF FPS etc. is not normal to keep the price at $2700 ( don't mention the inflation and other raw materials price increase).

In my opinion $3500 is a fair price for what this camera offers.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 7Dmk2 any rumors??

I believe that we will see a successor of the current 7D at not earlier than Photokina in September or in the early 2013.

Yeah... It is discontinued.

Seriously... if the 5D MKIII has improved AF, weather sealing and FPS, the only difference for a 7D upgrade becomes crop sensor, and at that point... why bother.

My guess is the 70D becomes the legacy to the 7D

Exactly for that 1.6 crop sensor (extra reach) and the price . They will aim the new 7D ( or whatever will be called) to those photographers who can not afford a 1Dx.

EOS Bodies / Canon 7Dmk2 any rumors??
« on: February 29, 2012, 04:44:34 AM »
   In the last month or so everybody is speaking only about the 5D3/X.... there are any viable rumors about the 7D replacement? lets face it 7D is a 3 years old camera ( its time to be upgraded). From what i can see from the latest 5D photos, the camera is called 5D3 (not X) , logical that means is not a combination between 5D and 7D series.

   I'm 99% sure that canon will not discontinue the 7D series build quality and features regardless that is called 7D mk2 or 70D.

EOS Bodies / Re: NO 5dM3 On Friday * CONFIRMED By a canon Rep Today

If there is no 5D3 announcement on 2rd of march... than maybe will be a 7Dmk2  :D.

Judging by the new photos of the new 5D series, its called Mark lll .... so..... the 5D series IS NOT combined with 7D in a 5DX. Soon enough we will hear about the 7D replacement. In my opinion in the next 2 months (the Olimpics are getting closer and closer)

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 5D Mark III/X Ideal Price???
« on: February 23, 2012, 02:10:45 PM »
From the start, I must say that some heavy assumptions are being made in this analysis, and I do understand these shortcoming of my analysis, this must state that this is for speculation and fun ONLY.

Taking the price of the historical "big brother" of the 5D line, the 1Ds (due to FF) and determining the price index between them over three generations of cameras, one can estimate an index based price of the 5D. Due to the fact that  the 1DX has an MSRP of $6800, and staying true to its historical index, the next gen 5D would be priced at $2714. This is assuming that no other factors are involved in pricing (features, tech, inflation, exchange rate, etc.).

If we strictly take into consideration the current price of the YEN vs. USD over time (as some on this forum are prognosticating), we can expect the price of the 5D3 to properly reflect the historical prices of the 5D (with respect to the 1Ds prices) at $4064 adjusting for ERs. This would be the MSRP IF Canon wanted to continue the exact margins/index as the last generation of 5D/1Ds.

HOWEVER, I repeatedly hear justifications for price increases of the 5DmkIII base on solely exchange rates. I believe that this is a misnomer and not the driving MSRP factor for canon due to the fact that the MSRP of the 1DX was set at $6800! The price of that camera went DOWN compared to its last generation even with a YEN increasing in value by 50%. I do understand that the 1DX is not a true offspring of the 1DsmkIII, but with the combination of the two lines and addition of new features to boot, I believe my point to still be valid.


...don't foget that the new generation of 5D will be much closer to the 1D flagship compared with older modeles ( 5D vs 1Dsmk2 and 5D2 vs 1Ds3) somehow is justified the price to be at $3000 or beyond 3k

22 megapixels?

I don't buy it.

Talk of a high-megapixel D800 killer aside, why would Canon ever make two different kinds of full frame sensors? They never did in the past.

Speaking of the past.....  nobody anticipate the release of 5D back in 2005. the company strategy can change, .radically influenced by the market.

PS 5DMK2 was the best seller upper lvl camera that canon ever had.

perhaps something that caters more to those who need higher resolution will be released by end of year.
The 1Dx and the 5D (III/x) are both the right cameras for the Olympics and the Euro 2012 (soccer). Later this year there is the Photokina. The right place to launch a professional high mp camera (and maybe a prosumer-grade APS-C Body).


You are right regarding a high MP body......

regarding of a semi-pro APS-C body i believe launching after the Olympics and euro 2012 will be a huge mistake.

Many people (regular people) wants to take pictures at the Olympics and they want a APS-C sensor camera to have the reach. using the new 5d they will need a very expensive lens to match in reach a 7D with an 70-300mm attached.

If the specs and price are true... then i will order a 5Dmk2 for $2200 ( where i live ) for studio work and a 7D for outdoor.

The final result will be $3650... for a 5Dmk2 and a 7D..... HMMMMMMM

Lenses / Re: Just how important is IS?
« on: February 17, 2012, 01:03:30 AM »
In the case of the 70-200/4, the IS version is also sharper, and is weather-sealed.



You mean that the 70-200 f/4L (without IS) is not weather sealed???

Lenses / Re: What lens for 7D EF-S or L
« on: February 15, 2012, 01:50:41 PM »
I normally enjoy shooting landscape etc and want to get some lens, I currently have an XSI and want to upgrade to 7D or 7D2 or 70D depending on how much I can save up.. But figured I needed glass first.    So for a crop sensor what do most people like to use?   Since the wide L lenses are 28mm or equivalent to a 35mm EF-S I don't know if they will be wide enough.   Any thoughts?

Thanks

I strongly suggest 17-40 f/4 L USM lens... very good IQ and at a good price. for shallow DOF i suggest 50mm f/1.4.
