Lenses / Why don't Canon make lenses for other mounts?
« on: November 01, 2014, 07:58:32 PM »
Seeing that Sigma makes lenses for all mounts AND also makes its own cameras, why doesn't Canon sell at least some of its lenses in other mounts?

I reckon you could make a good business case for it, as many of the Canon lenses are so coveted by Nikon and Pentax users.
If Canon is being hammered in the sales of bodies (which I doubt), sales of all of these extra lenses would certainly help the bottom line.

I've tried a few of the latest mirrorless cameras, including the A7R, and I won't be swapping my 5D3 for any of them!

Someone is making a ton of $$$$$ out of this.
From my experience, the plating cost of the pieces would cost around $30, then there is the disassembly and reassemble of the parts.

Seems to me that there is plenty left over for charity.

I really like my Black Rapid, that I bought for $30 at a trade show.
I rarely unhook the carabiner and I've never had a problem with them, although it's a hassle when using a tripod as I have to remove the strap.

What do you guys think of the Carryspeed straps?
They have some practical base plates that can be  a used with tripods too, and their prices are cheap.
Does the ball attachment give any problems?

A 5D3.

My 60D has over 150,000 on it and it's still going strong,  and has never been serviced.

At least he gets his subjects smiling!

EOS Bodies / Re: Where are the Canon fun Pentaxian colors?

Pentax really makes these colourful cameras for the Japanese market, where cheap DSLRs are virtually a throw away market and they are trying to attract young women into the hobby. The Japanese market is quite different from ours.

Back in the 60's Canon and Nikon, and others, offered silver/black as standard with all black being an option, at extra cost.
Why can't Canon offer an optional colour?
I'd love a white 5D3.

For 10K, it would have to be medium format.
To me, the 1Ds are just too big and too heavy for just a 35mm sensor.

I love my 5D3, as do so many others here, and it does everything I've ever asked of it, and believe me, I do a wide range of photography.

For 10K, a body would be able to turn up to the photos jobs itself and do the job without me.

I bet it's a mistake.

I'd  still prefer it if it had a push-pull zoom.
I love that on my 100-400.

You can zoom and focus at the same time.

Video & Movie / Re: Who is shooting in 4k?
« on: October 24, 2014, 07:25:19 PM »
Movie studios have been shooting in 4K or better for years now.
Any digital movie you see at the cinema has been 4K or better for at least the last 5 years.

I love my 100-400L.
The new one would need to be significantly better for me to replace it with the version.

It may have been the best camera he had with him at the time.
