EOS Bodies - For Stills / 5D II/24-70L II OR 5D III/24-70L
« on: May 16, 2012, 11:15:28 PM »
I've been saving for a while now to upgrade my T1i and ef-s lenses to full frame, and will have a budget around $4k to work with.  I'm just looking for some opinions on which combo to go with: 5d II and the new 24-70L II or the 5d III and the original 24-70L.

Image quality of the combo, and features/handling are my two main concerns. If the image quality of the original 24-70L plus the newer 5d III is good enough then all the extra features the 5d III offers will be great.  If the performance of the 24-70L II lives up to the expectations and blows the original out of the water, then I could certainly justify getting the 5d II and the newer lens. 

Everybody always says to spend the money on glass, which is why I'm coming to the CR forums for help.  Which way would you go and why?  Thanks for any input  ;D

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Combining Sensors...is it possible?
« on: April 30, 2012, 03:42:03 AM »
I just read an article over at PopSci about a new camera being constructed that uses dozens of large format sensors in a large array to create images.  It got me to thinking about using a similar technique in DSLRs.  Why can't a camera have say four m4/3 sensors in a 2x2 pattern to make a similar sensor to 35mm?  Anybody have any ideas?

Here's the article:
