EOS Bodies / Re: The Ultimate Question - Buy a 5D MKII today or wait?
« on: February 08, 2012, 03:41:09 AM »
When the new 5D will be announced the price of the current 5D2 will drop even more (maybe under $ 2K ); than i will buy a 5D2 regardless of the new 5D camera specs.

For what i need 5D2 is very suitable.

let me tell you what i will do:

I will wait 1-2 months until the 5DmK3 is announced and buy a brand new 5Dmk2 at $2000 or under. For what i use the camera (microstock and studio) 21 MP and very good IQ is more than enough.

stock photographers will be happy: they need more megapixels :)

c'mon, Canon, do smth for stockers too! :)

Exactly :) in stock more megapixels is better.

I hpe canon will came with an APS-H (1D4) extended at FF, a 27 MP sensor with 1Dmk4 ISO performance will ''destroy'' the new D800.

And combine the actual 7D with what ?.... the 60D; i don't think so. With 5D? than will be called 5DX...

Most certain if canon will keep the 7D line will be called 7DMK2.

I want to thank all for sharing your experience regarding the 7D. After a thorough research i came to a conclusion:

I will go for the 5Dmk2 - the Image quality is more important for me than the autofocus and other functions that 7d have over 5d.

I will keep my 40D for that 30% where 1.6 crop factor  and 6.5 fps is a huge advantage.

Thanks again for your support and sharing your experience. Very, very helpful,



I think we are going to see two different bodies from Canon and 5d mk3 is not  intended to be a competitor to d800. Perhaps a late Feb 5D x or mk3 and a high mp 3D around Photokina?

sounds plausible to have a 22MP 5DX with 7.5 - 8 fps ( 5dMK2 and 7D) with very good ISO performance and a say a 3D high resolution 32MP camera (for studio use)...

Date/Time Original : 2011:04:30 21:09:07;The body was finished at least 10 months  before the  announcing date. hmmm, Hard to believe that the exif data is true

Nikon D800 leaked sample image @iso 6400
full size image:

If the sample is true than the new D800 will destroy the 5Dmk3 ( if the 5d will be a 22MP camera), even if canon will have 1 sop better ISO;  14 MP advantage will make a huge difference.

Hope Canon will go for the 28-32 MP sensor.

EOS Bodies / Re: 7D Mk2 ..... APS-H

For a mirrorless system with APS-H sensor not to use EF lens would be a total folly on Canon's behalf. With the EF-S mount there are only a few good lens (3 or 4?) whereas to have to redesign all the good EF lens for a new mount does not make commercial sense

Using EF-S lenses would surely mean that Canon would be unable to reduce the flange distance and thus unable to save much space on a mirrorless body as there rivals have.

Seems most likely to me that they'd create a small new system of general purpose mirrorless lenses along with an EF adaptor to allow for more speicalist lenses to be used with AF intact. Not being able to use EF-S lenses doesnt seem like much of a problem to me since there arent really any speicalist lenses in the lineup besides arguebley the 60mm macro which has many EF alternatives anyway.

I do the same. i believe that the final price will be under $3.000

I have searched the web regarding the topic subject and like here i found different opinions, i found also loads crap images shoot with 7d (at 18MP) and very good photos ( unfortunately not at 18MP resolution more at 4-6MP).

if somebody is willing to post some links where we can see studio shots made with 7D at full resolution and post the post processing information .... that would be ideal.

eventually i believe i will rent one and test it in detail. but i want to make a concrete idea before spending 60  euros to rent a camera.

Thanks for the replays,

I am aware that the 5Dmk2 IQ is better than 7D, i am only interested if the 7D is up to the job. I mean above average IQ , sharpness and base ISO noise levels, considering today studio quality demands; or the end result is less than acceptable.

regarding of lenses i  use 17-40 f/4 L ; 50mm f/1.4 ; 100mm f/2.8 IS L .

I am not interested in a comparison between 7D and 5D IQ. I know that 5D is much better in noise lvl and image quality. I am interested if the 7D is up to the task (70% studio work at above average IQ according to today Studio photography standards.). I have friends with 5Dmk2, 40D various Nikon models but not one with 7D ( to do a compare with my 40D).

I want to upgrade my almost 4 years old Canon 40D; my choice is the 7D; i mention that i will use it only with high quality L lenses, 40% for people studio work (portraits postures, isolated on white) 30% for objects, food, desserts  (in studio, over various backgrounds) and 30% for cases where the 1.6 crop factor and 8 frames/sec is a huge advantage. I am not interested in high ISO capability of the camera above ISO 400.

My questions are:

- how is performing the 7D sensor in studio shooting people over white background?Huh ( i am  interesting mostly in image noise levels at iso 100-200 , the ability to produce sharp images and the ''problems'' with the hair over white background)

- the lvl of details and overall IQ produced by 7D in studio is above average considering today stock standards ( SS standards in special)?

Thanks in advance for sharing your experience,


EOS Bodies / Re: 7D Mk2 ..... APS-H
« on: January 31, 2012, 01:05:16 AM »
I think that at this time last year, I would have bought off on the "7D Mark II can't be APS-H because it would screw up naming convention" argument, but I think Canon has shown they're thinking way beyond that already.  as a long-time participant on the forums, I feel we often give Canon too little credit for thinking aggressively outside of the box.  which is actually unwarranted, because Canon have become the industry leader by taking some major risks and creating genuine innovation.

for starters, Canon are the folks that came up with the APS-H in the first place and continued to use it well after everyone said they'd abandon the format.  secondly, Canon (at least claims to have) merged the 1D line, against everyone's cries of 'preposterous' and 'what will we do for high resolution?  the nikon d4x will be 38 gajillion pixels'.  third, Canon did stick a near-APS-C sensor into the G-series camera, while still calling it the G-series.  this broke two rules that everyone assumed that they would adhere to: a. that we can't change sensor size without changing the lineup name, and b. that canon's large-sensor compact would HAVE to be interchangeable lens because that's what everyone else was doing.

I don't see why Canon's next surprise won't be an APS-H 7D Mark II.  sure, people will bitch for a while about not being able to use their 10-22 ... until they buy their 16-35.  in reality, everyone with a 7D is probably already rolling with a few L lenses (even if it's the 70-200mm f/4 L), which will work just fine on an APS-H sensor.  raise your hands if you really bought a 7D so you could shoot wide format shots.  that's what I thought.

we always give Canon crud over being too stodgy and conservative but I feel as though WE, the consumer base, are actually the ones that are stodgy and conservative.  Canon is bringing some very cool product to the table this year and I think awesome things are in the future for the 5D and 7D lines.

kubelik - You read my thoughts.

The only way that Canon will ''beat'' the new Nikon D400 ( with in my opinion will be a better camera than 7D) is to use an APS-H sensor with say 21MP and the ability to use EF-s lenses on the camera at a 14-15 MP final resolution.

14-15 MP final resolution and a broken reflex mirror after you mount the EF-S 10-22mm and take a shot at 10mm.  Sounds like a plan...

who knows, this days technology...
