EOS Bodies / Re: Canon T3i, 60D, 7D comparison (same sensor??)
« on: February 25, 2011, 03:30:26 PM »
Don't forget the T2i has the same sensor too.

I would suppose that each version of the 18mp sensor would be better on noise than the previous which would make the T3i the best performer but I don't really have any evidence to back this up.

I have used a 60D in the store and it seemed to give no better or worse ISO performance than my 7D.

I haven't compared the two myself.

Here is a good article about the 60D that has a ISO comparison of many Canon's to compare.

Is this why my 60mm f2.0 doesn't focus worth a crap on my 7D?
Esp, when it is very out of focus to begin with.

Ah, I was gonna sell it anyway.

Ok, so everyone has said to get a second body. I'll either rent a 5D mark II or another 7D. I'm tempted to get another 7D because I could design my kit around a focal length multiplier. Or would the extra low light performance be more useful

7D (or 5D Mark II)
EF 24mm L

EF-S 10-22mm
EF 85mm 1.8
EF 70-200 f2.8 USM IS (Mark I if I can find it, I can't afford the Mark II)

EF-S 18-135mm
Tamron 60mm f2.0 (maybe)

Hm, It's true that I didn't have a good wide angle lens on that list. I like to use some wide angle shots in my work. And I really do like the 17-55mm but I'm trying to stay away from buy to many more EF-S lenses as my goal is to go FF at some point.

What about the 16-35mm L or 17-40mm L?

I would like to have a good zoom available to use. But I also would love to use available light and no flashes, so a good prime would be best. I love the idea of a 24mm f1.4, I've been eyeing that lens for a long time anyway. I think the 60mm f2.0 will work well enough too.

Given me a lot to think about, I really appreciate the insight. Keep the advice coming! :)

EF-S 18-135mm f3.5-5.6. (I hate this lens.)

Hate is not a good word to describe my feelings for this particular lens. "Abhor" might be better. I posted these thoughts to the Canon website.

Vignetting is horrible, as is CA. If you love dark corners in your photos, as well as a purple fringe around your subjects, this is the lens for you! I can get the advertised 4 stops of image stabilization, which is a great plus, but the non-USM micro motor AF is very slow, and constantly searching in low light. As far as image quality, the word "disappointing" comes to mind.. I own several Canon lenses, and this one gets left at the bottom of the bag, unless I need quick access to a wide zoom. Build quality is, in a word, terrible. Focus and zoom is very loose. Tip it slightly and the barrel fully extends; no creep here... it flies out. The silver ring started peeling off the barrel, which gives a nice touch to the junky, plastic feel of this lens. If you compare price vs. quality, you would do better to look elsewhere. I am a Canon nut, and shoot with nothing but Canon glass. Canon makes extraordinary lenses. This, my friends, it not one of them.

Oh, I agree. The vingetting doesn't bother me as much but the CA is really really terrible at 18mm as is the zoom creep. It's an ok lens to get in a kit with a Rebel but I would dare think of shooting anything important with it. I used to like it, but the more I use it the more it pisses me off.

Ok, I have my first wedding booking in October. Luckily I have some time to second shoot some with a few pros in the area. But I need some new glass for it. Suppose I can spend $1,500 ($2000 if I sell one of my current lenses). What would you recommend?

I have a:
7D Body
EF-S 18-135mm f3.5-5.6. (I hate this lens.)
Tamron 60mm F2.0 Macro (great lens, slow AF)

Lenses I was considering:
EF 50mm 1.4
EF 24-105mm L f4
EF 24-70mm L f2.8
EF 85mm 1.8
EF 70-200mm f4 IS
Sigma 30mm 1.4

Ah, it's pointless. They're just nit picking at camera's.
For the price the 60D is a fantastic camera that will take fantastic pictures. If I was trying to decide on a 550D, 600D, or 60D I'd go with the 60D any day.

In my opinion the only other camera in that line up worth considering is the Nikon D7000, which is a great camera, but you are going to pay more for it.

It's the same 15 RAWs I believe. But the 7D will reach that 15 faster with the 8fps.
Both can do Jpegs until you get board basically.

EOS Bodies / Re: 60D & 7D Rebates coming February 20
« on: February 17, 2011, 10:09:20 AM »
They were in the fall rebates as well.  it probably has more to do with nikon rebates and the need to match them.

The 60d is a new model, and 7D is not that old.  They won't be replaced this year.

Agreed, the 7D isn't that old.  I think it's funny, many posters saying "I don't to get a 7D because its getting dated"

That is funny. I've seen pros that still use 5D1's as their main body.
But, not only is the 7D not very old it seems to be aging very well.

EOS Bodies / Re: 7D - buy now or hold off?

I am also thinking of purchasing the 7D.  Someone wrote this as a con, and I was wondering if anyone  found this to be troublesome or annoying ?  Thank You        "  New AF system draws big, black rectangles as each AF sensor goes active — and they never turn off as you're trying to compose! These big, ugly, distracting rectangles don't go away until after you've taken your picture! This makes it difficult to see your subject's expression, or even your subject! "   

I know where you read that quote. That no good. Don't listen to him.
As a 7D owner I can tell you that it is not a problem for me. They are not ugly or distracting. It's really no different than the 9 dots and squares on the xxxD and xxD line focus screens.

I agree. The grip alone makes the 60D worth it.

Lenses / Re: EF-S L Lenses
« on: February 15, 2011, 04:13:26 PM »
Many people are already confused by the difference between EF-S and EF lenses
:D  With full names like EF 70-200 mm f/2.8 L IS II USM, EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM, or EF 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 DO IS could anything about a lens name be confusing?   

Maybe they should be something like "Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 SP Di VC USD"  :)
Ha!  I know.  I wonder if canon knows how much brand loyalty I have just because I don't want to jump into and try to figure out Nikon's naming system.   :P

Getting back to topic at hand, the 1.6x crop factor market is under served.  I actually don't care if the EFS lenses ever get a red ring, but I do want to see things like weather sealing on our general purpose zoom lenses.  I own and shoot a 7D.  So my camera body has weather sealing but my general purpose zoom doesn't?   Then the 70-200 mm lenses are great for full frame bodies as it covers the entire portrait range and short telephoto.  On a 1.6x body, a lot of the portrait range is lost.  So, at least, give us equivalent EF-S lenses to the EF "L"s....even if Canon doesn't give us the red ring.

I agree completely. That is one reason I have considered just embracing EF-S is because the focal ranges are designed for cropped bodies. But I want weather sealing and top optical quality too. The current state of things pushes me to go full frame. Which could be the point of Canon making only EF lenses L lenses.

10mb/s isn't the fastest SD card. I have a 30mb/S SD card.
