One limit is the resolution of our eyes. If you look at a 42'' Screen from 4 meter, between 720p and 1080p there is no visible difference.

42" for 4 meter is not right distance.  I believe 55"+ is suggested for 4 meter distance.  For me I can clearly tell the different between 720p and 1080p from my 58" TV from about 6 meter in my living room.  I really need a 65" to 70" 4K or 8K TV for my living room.  The only problem is the input source is not ready yet.

I switched to Tamron 24-70 VC from Canon 24-70 MK1.
1. Tamron has better IQ.
2. Canon has faster AF.
3. I feel AF on Tamron is more accurate than Canon MK1.
4. Tamron has great VC(IS).
5. Tamron does have more onion ring bokeh than Canon MK1.

Here is my opinion.
If you need faster AF and better IQ with extra 1000 dollars, go to sell your MK1 and get MK2.  Otherwise, you should either switch to Tamron now or wait for Sigma 24-70.

I am still using my old HTC M7 for video and picture for notes.  The IQ is very good especially for low light.  I will stay with HTC (M9?) if it has 4K video.  Basically I try to avoid using phone camera for photos.

I will consider switching to other Nikon/Sony next time when I want to have a big upgrade, but not now.  I am really fine with my current gears.  Another important reason is Magic Lantern support.

I would like to see
24+ MP with same or better high ISO

Of cause, subject tracking and face detection and lower price are welcomed.

Hey, that's the new flexible screen technology!!  ;D

Are you sure?  I thought Apple use that technology on their 5S as well.

If Canon 11-24mm is true, it should be the best choice for me.  Now I am happy with Samyang 14mm.

it will have:

* no wifi
* no touchscreen
* no 4K video
* 24 MP DPAF 2 sensor with enhanced microlenses
* 81 cross point AF system
* x-sync 1/200s
* ethernet
* usb 3

that´s all my sources revealed for now.

Then no upgrade from me.  I would like to see at least.
4K video
More MP

For this price range, RX100M3 and LX100 will be better choice for me.

OS?  Isn't that the widest optically stabilized lens anywhere?

Bring on the 24-70/2!

Cannot wait for its 24-70/f2 OS.

Software & Accessories / Re: Asus or BenQ
« on: August 14, 2014, 02:19:14 AM »
Both Asus and BenQ are really good.  BenQ was part of Acer group and makes very good computer accessories.  As an IT people from Taiwan(both Asus and BenQ are Taiwan companies), I will say there is no big different between the two monitors.

I think you will enjoy your new toys.  I am not planning to upgrade my gears in the coming two years.  Hopefully 5D4 will have high MP and better DR for my next upgrade.

It’s noted that Sony has no interest in competing with Hasselblad or Phase One and that their medium format camera would be something “completely different”. Perhaps a compact MF system?
Sony is being quite aggressive in trying to find new markets in still cameras, and if the system is priced affordably for medium format, they could have a winner if this true.

If the new system can use the current Sony lenses, it would be a really a game changer.

I am not a big fan of fisheye.  Hopefully Tamron will make some 10/12mm prime f/2.8.
