Lenses / Re: TS-E 45mm & TS-E 90mm Finally Getting Replaced? [CR1]
« on: March 15, 2013, 03:09:04 PM »
Might finally sell my 4x5 if the 45mm is great.

Speed not a concern... strangest thing to ask for on such a lens. I would live with f8! After all these are used for deep focus photography and on tripods or in studio. T/S is about increasing depth of field.

Tilt is about changing the focal plane. Sometimes this is used to increase the depth of field on the subject. Sometimes it's not.... and that's only half the function of the lens. Shift doesn't increase your dof.

Why not make the 45mm ts-e faster? If you can make a 90mm ts-e f/2.8 you can make a 45mm ts-e f/2 or 1.8

I really like the perspective of a normal lens...
I believe that perspective is only affected by moving the camera, not by changing lenses.
"Many will say that focal length also determines the perspective of an image, but strictly speaking, perspective only changes with one's location relative to their subject."

"In other words, switching from a "normal" lens to one with a greater focal length at the same camera location will have no discernible effect on perspective."


Yes, but a lens that is roughly equivalent to the diagonal of the sensor will yield images that look normal because it's similar to the way we see the world with our own eyes. For full frame this is close to 50mm. The lens isn't wide angle or tele.... I used perspective instead of field of view because we tend to fill the frame with our subjects. On wide angle this means we get closer than normal and with tele's we get farther away than normal.

I really like the perspective of a normal lens and have been toying with the idea of getting a 45mm ts-e for some creative uses. However, the lens is still expensive and pretty soft. It softer than the 24-70 version 1, way softer than the 50 1.8 even at f/2.8. I'm hoping they make it as good or better than the 50 1.4 at 2.8 and beyond.

plus one... how can the 200mm f/2L IS be made better?

I think the 70D will be a lot like the 7D in performance in a slightly smaller 60D body. The 7D2 should be a little 1DX with a crop sensor.

This Rebel appears to be more of an incremental upgrade than I've yet seen in the Rebel series. I wonder if they'll add wifi or gps. I think a good portion of buyers of these cameras are the Best Buy soccer mom types who don't use them to 25% of their true ability.

Marketing instant facebook pics may be a better sale than iso 25600. I could be wrong.

EVF with mirror doesn't make sense unless they are copying Sony. They'll have to move the sensor farther back to reduce thickness and I'm not sure if they can do that.

CR says there are ways it can be done. I would have been nice to link to some earlier stories on patents or something.

What if Canon leaks all these different rumors and uses our comments as a free focus group session?

EOS Bodies / Re: New DSLR at the End of March [CR2]

This falls in line with the earlier prediction by Nippon Camera Magazine

Essentially translates into:

Canon EOS 70D in March
Canon EOS Kiss X7i (Rebel T5i/EOS 700D) in June
Canon EOS Me (next mirrorless camera) in July
Canon EOS 7D Mark II in September
Canon EOS 3D (the mighty big megapixel DSLR) in October

Considering the quality of the high end lenses Canon has been putting out lately, I'd say go for it. I'm sure they can think of a way to make it wider and sharper.

The only complaint I ever heard from a 7D user was about their sensor. Now they get near 5D3 ISO ability. That is great! They also get a 25% bump in FPS, wifi, gps, upgraded AF system and a few other goodies like video features.

And who are these people complaining that this should have been the 5D3 or 6D? 10 FPS on a FF body is called the 1Dx.

I'm not even sure why I bother with the forum on this site.

Great! Now give us red AF points, 1080 at 50p, and focus peaking without the need of magic lantern.
