EOS Bodies / Re: The Last Generation of the Crop Sensor Cameras
« on: April 26, 2012, 10:25:30 AM »
i agree that crop frame SLR cameras days are numbered. Not in the next couple years or anything, but surely they won't make it out of this decade. Death from FF slr's, mirrorless things, or something else will take them out. Sure most people don't know the difference, they use their camera phones. But when then go online or walk into a camera shop they will be told about the differences. sensor prices will continue to fall, hence ff camera body prices. the lens lineup with consolidate, new ef-s lenses will stop being designed. they will likely be MADE for a good while after new designs have halted, and repairs will continue for a good while after that happens. but the day will come when they are no more. Are crop frame bodies , with lenses attached considerably smaller than FF stuff to justify their existence on size alone? Compared to mirrorless offerrings? Can someone name something electronic that hasn't gotten faster, smaller, cheaper, and better for less? that's a real question, perhaps there are examples, i just can't think of any. DSLR's are computers in highend cases.

EOS Bodies / Re: Shoot JPEG again with 5D3
« on: April 26, 2012, 08:22:12 AM »
Since DXO, my preferred RAW converter, isn't really ready to work with the mk3's RAW files, i've been shooting more jpgs than i have in years. i've been impressed with the mk3's jpg engine. If the exposure is good, and the WB suits you, i really don't see a RAW file making much of a difference. That said, once DXO has a handle on the files i'll likely go back to mostly shooting RAW for most everything but there are surely times when i wouldn't hesitate to shoot jpg. Confusing, isn't it.

Lenses / Re: Is anyone interested in the 24mm2.8IS?
« on: April 24, 2012, 10:58:09 PM »
i guess not. Perhaps the video guys might be interested in it, and they aren't here?  :-\   Otherwise it looks like Canon might be laying eggs with the 24/28mm IS lenses.

Lenses / Is anyone interested in the 24mm2.8IS?
« on: April 22, 2012, 09:05:06 PM »
I'm wondering what I should expect from this lens, IQ wise. Where will it place in the canon lineup? i know the older nonIS isn't highly regarded, i know the 1.4 is a pretty awesome 1.4, and this will have the distinction of having IS. I even like the idea of sharing filters with my 85 1.8.

I've been feeling the same way. out shooting, having a good time, and the camera is working great. A friend of mine emailed me about that light leak thing, saying oh, no, are you going to return it. I said, no way, but if the light leak "fix" ends up messing up the good exposure system i would be mad.

Lenses / Re: 400 DO f/4 vs 300 f/2.8is with x1.4 vs 400 f/2.8
« on: April 22, 2012, 10:30:18 AM »
I hope you get some user info about this. I'm curious also about the 300mm2.8IS +1.4tele versus 400mmf4DO. I've never really read much positive about the DO lenses other than the size weight advantages, but sometimes that alone might be of very high importance.

Lenses / Re: Is This Normal?
« on: April 17, 2012, 10:08:15 PM »
Yeah, it stinks that DXO doesn't have the software yet, but i'll wait.

I just don't see how this lens stinks. Out of the dozens of reviewing sites i look at from time to time I've never found a review that came to that conclusion. I find things like hey, nikon's 14-24 is the best thing ever, much sharper than that canon. but i've yet to see them tested against each other. Everyone's fav, Kenrockwell used to say that. then he got an f-EOS mount converter and he never pitted them against each other. Then he went to saying that some tokina was as good as the canon, which was in turn as good as the nikon.  Besides, if it was such crap, why do so many pros have it and use it so much. Occasionally they must need a clear image out of the thing right?  That said, i'm actually thinking of selling mine to reallocate the funds. But, i'd miss it.

I've yet to shoot with my 16-35 on my mk3, but these photos you guys are posting don't look as good as what i  expect to see when i do. really, they don't look as good as what my 16-35 does on my 5d. From my exp with my 5d, stopped down to 5.6 or f8, that lens is actually respectably sharp. Granted, i'm used to shooting RAW and letting DXO do my processing with minimal input from me.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5DII Vs 5DIII for my needs
« on: April 16, 2012, 08:30:34 AM »
racing... yeah, you are better off with the mk3 for sure. I feel that the 5d does fairly good with AF but ONLY with the center sensor. the mk3 is worlds better in that regard. Sure it still feels like a slow poke with it's operations, but the mk3's AF is very good. the question i guess is how important are those racing photos to you, because otherwise the mk2 will get it done.

EOS Bodies / Re: Mark III metering

I'm very please with the metering of my mk3. I'm also really liking the auto shadow highlighting thing procedure.

i don't know what these guys are talking about, this is pretty clear cut.  get a mk2, pocket the difference. I'm starting to wonder about this site...

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 5D Mark III Light Leak?
« on: April 07, 2012, 03:52:40 PM »
so is the light leaking around the LCD from the outside, or is it the light from the LCD itself? I'll check mine when i can, but since i've had a pretty good time with the auto exposure system i don't know how worried about it i would be. But i do wonder how it might impact weather resistance if light is actually able sneak around the LCD.

5D MK III Sample Images / Re: National Zoo with the 5D Mk III
« on: April 02, 2012, 01:10:02 PM »
nice photos. I was there last winter and saw 2 guys with what looked like 800 or 600mm lenses, and a guy with a 70-200 IS v2. Then near one of the eating areas i saw 3-4 teenage girls with what appeared to be a bunch of different vintage rangefinders. Nice zoo, and again, nice shots.
