Makes sense with the addition of 3 or 4 new video cameras recently announced.

Just buy the Mark 2 now and worry about paying for it later.

Lenses / 1DX affect on used 300 and 400 2.8L Prices
« on: April 13, 2012, 03:08:49 PM »
Right now, there are lots of 1D4 shooters with 300 and 400 2.8Ls that give them 390mm and 520mm effective focal lengths. Will these shooters be upgrading to the 1Dx? Will they be selling their lenses or adding a 1.4x teleconverter?

I want a 300 2.8 and am hoping I can pick up one up cheaper after this summers 1DX release.

Any thoughts? Anyone 1DX upgraders out there?

While the DSLR advantage is the viewfinder mostly and faster AF, the sensors haven't caught up IMO. The IQ from a Rebel is superior to all of the sub $1000 mirrorless cameras I've seen.

One thin we might see are EF-S lenses with compact zoom capabilities... something like an EF-S 15-100 f/4-f5.6 that is no larger than the 50 1.8. Add that to a smaller rebel and you have something that is comparible to the mirrorless, but with better IQ.

If what you says is true - the t4i would be a major disappointment for those waiting until the latest in technology came along.

You'll always be disappointed when buying tech stuff - this is called "planned obsolescence". And you'll always want the next better model - this is called "marketing". To get around these problems, go outside and take pictures :-p

The Rebel is a trickle down technology camera. Unless the technology is consumer oriented, like the creative auto features. You are not likely to get much pro upgrades that you are looking for. I think Canon needs to give DLSR a fighting chance at the larger than compact /smaller than pro body market that the mirrorless cameras are trying to achieve.

One thing that benefits the DSLR is that the mirrorless still have to put on a lens. If Canon can reduce the size of the rebel by 10-15%, it should be a higher IQ alternative to mirrorless.

EOS Bodies / Re: T3i (or T2i) to 5D Mark III

I went from t3i to 5d3 and it is night and day. The AF, build quality, LCD, viewfinder, high ISO, button customization, wider FF shots, 1/8000 sec shutter speed, 6 fps, 23MP, HDR.... list goes on.

I do miss my swivel screen and pop-up sometimes though. Had to buy calumet wireless transmitter.

There are things no one is discussing. The viewfinder is 1.6x bigger and brighter. The button customization is amazing. Now I can change ISO, aperture, & shutter speed so much more easily. It makes manual mode much easier to use. T3i is max 1/4000th second. So on bright days, you might not be able to open up to f/1.2 on your 50L.

ISO 800 on the t3i is like 25000 on 5d3

My guess is that the t4i will not have new sensor. I will be smaller/lighter with same functionality, digic 5, small increase in fps, and hdr modes. Same AF. Same LCD. Same most other things.

EF 14-24 2.8L
+10 count me in! i don't really want this for myself, but hope you guys get what you want ;)
+11 ... sounds awesome ... whatever it is
+12. Not really interested. I just want to see how far we can go before the internet breaks.
It's like a crazy mat job!
+13 When it's gets to +20 I'm going to take a picture
+14 Actually this is probably not the best way that Canon should be gaining market info from  ;D
+14.5 She can't take it!  She's breaking up!
+15 or I'm buying the Nikon one + the 16-9 converter!
+16 I would rather this than a new body.
+17 I have never hoped that Canon reps read this board as much as I do right now.
+18 On a 7D - fantastic  ;)
+19 What lens were we talkin' bout again?
I see scrollbars! I think the INTERNET is breaking! (We need one more for +20!!)
Looks like a tunnel. Who would have thought a photography forum would have creative people. Quick someone take a photo of this and push shadows +100

Love the new silent shutter

I wouldn't read the manual without having the camera nearby. Like reading a dictionary without being able to change settings and testing them out.

I own the 35L, 50L and 135L. I'd like faster AF on the 50L. I'd like IS on my 135L so long as it didn't affect IQ. The 35L is perfect. I hope they get a faster AF on the 18 1.2.

They can upgrade anything they want... I just hope they do it soon. The sooner they release, the sooner the price comes down to earth.

When you're done pixel peeping take the cameras out in the real world and see which one is more fun to use.... Seriously.
