Lenses / Re: 70-200mm Mk I vs Mk II
« on: February 20, 2015, 01:11:30 PM »
I had own the MK1 for about 2 years.  It was good, but not great.  f2.8 - f4 was soft for me.  Don't remember how the IS performed.  I liked it but not loved it.
I was so exited when the MK2 released and bought soon after it on the market.  I cannot be happier for that decision.

EOS Bodies / Re: Skipping the 5D-s. What do you want in 5D4?
« on: February 11, 2015, 07:21:51 PM »
The 5D-s will be $4k and a premium studio camera. Great for those who have the need and Canon responded in a way to the two year old D800.

For those who aren't going to buy this camera, what does canon need to do in the 5D4 to consider an upgrade? Assuming that the 5D4 will have no less specs than the 5D-s, What else need to be added on?

My list.

1. All Crosstype AF
2. Linked AF Point Spot Metering? (May be in 5D-s)
3. 1/250th Sync speed bump.
4. Bump to 7-8 FPS.
5. Dual CF
7. 4K
8. Touchscreen
9. Peaking and Zebra
10. RAW 1080P Video or 4K if possible. (ML managed to do it. Canon can.)
11. IQ, Resolution Bump from 22MP to Anything below 40MP.
12. $3499.

1. All Crosstype AF
Would be nice.
2. Linked AF Point Spot Metering? (May be in 5D-s)
Strong agree

7. 4K
Strong agree

9. Peaking and Zebra
Would be nice, but not not important because ML will support it.

10. RAW 1080P Video or 4K if possible. (ML managed to do it. Canon can.)
Would be nice.

11. IQ, Resolution Bump from 22MP to Anything below 40MP.

12. $3499.
Agree.  Of cause the lower the better.

My guess is that we'll get:
-New AF system from future 1D X Mk II
-Interchangeable VF screens
-The 7DII features
-EC with Auto ISO in M
-24MP sensor with ~1 stop high ISO improvement, maybe ~1 stop DR improvement
-New video features (me-too 4k and others)
-USB 3.0
-Same FPS
-Distortion correction
-AF during video
-A few smaller surprises

+1 for GPS and higher ISO and DR

Won't the menus and such when purchased from japan be in Japanese? Is there a way to change them to English?

I don't think there is a way to change the language for JP model.  Most Japanese model electronics doesn't have English menu.  That's why I don't buy Japanese model electronics even thought the Japanese model is cheaper nowadays(because of the exchange rate).  The only Japanese model electronic we have is Sony RX100 because that's for my wife.

Not excited.  ISO 6400 camera is not for me.  Where is 5D MK4?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Firmware: EOS 5D Mark III Version 1.3.3
« on: January 29, 2015, 01:05:28 PM »
If you're working with ML firmware, stay on 1.2.3

I am going to stay with version 1.2.3.

Just wonder, what they will do next, after the Canon 11-24 F/4.0 infos have leaked...Could they do an 11-24 at half of the Canon price?

I also would like to see the 11-24mm from Tamron.  I have never been interested in 16-35mm f/2.8 or f/4 because I want a wider lens.  If Tamron can make 11/12-24mm UWA lens with current Tamron IQ level, I will be very interested in that.

Nice collection.

It looks nice but I rarely use such a w/a and have a Sigma 12-24, bought new (worth about £300 now) that will suffice. Doubt if there will be a dramatic improvement over the Sigma.

I sold my Sigma 12-24mm because my copy is very soft.  I actually am very interested in this Canon EF 11-24mm lens.  Hopefully the price tag will be about 2.5K.

Canon General / Re: Canon Cinema EOS C300 Mark II Will be 4K [CR2]

I care only if 5D IV will have 4K video or not.

Reviews / Re: Camera Store Trashes New G7X

Better for what?  Cameralabs scored the Sony and the Canon at 89 points each.  The Canon is better for portraits with the longer lens whereas the Sony has electronic viewfinder but no touchscreen.  The Panasonic will have better IQ and 4K video recording but won't fit in a normal pocket and has an external flash which must also be carried along with the lens cap.  If you are going to get a camera that won't fit into a pocket for $900 why not just go APS-C and get the Sony A6000?

For me LX100 and A6000 is still very portable and can put to my pocket and my wife's bag without any problem.  However, I prefer LX100 because of the 4K video.  Of cause I need to see some reviews of LX100 before I make a decision.  Again, I am interested in only Sony RX100MK3 and Panasonic LX100.  For you LX100 and A6000 might be too big, but for me that's still a good size.  If A6000 had 4K video, surely I might not consider LX100.

I actually is more interested in a review of Sony RX100M3 vs Panasonic LX100.  I would like to pick one of them for my wife.  The LX100 has really good specs.  However, I cannot tell which one is better from just specs.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Sigma 150-600mm Preorder?

I wanted to buy Tamorn 150-600mm.  However, it's back order anywhere.  Actually that's a good thing because I have one more option for 150-600mm lens from Sigma.  Just wonder when we will see the review and test for it.

The thing is, my wife and daughter don't care at all about resolution and are perfectly happy watching SD versions of TV broadcasts, and usually won't bother to switch to the HD versions of the same broadcasts.

lol.  Man thought vs woman thought.  My wife also never care about HD things.  She is also enjoying SD videos.
