EOS Bodies / Re: What will be the issue with the 6D
« on: November 23, 2012, 08:24:36 PM »
My biggest issue will be the lack of used or refurbished ones for months. The 5dMkii is too tempting a deal for a good used one around 1500$ right now. I will need to play with both of them I have a feeling.

My guess would be the EF-800mm F/5.6

I hope you had a good time, thats all that counts!

Those shots looked surprisingly good to me. How do you guys think this will compare to the 5dII at say ISO 3200? Im going to be in the market for one of the two eventually

I sent mine directly to a tamron Office after I contacted tamron, and they gave me a PO number. I included some sample shots of the softness, and sent it to them, I forget where, but it was in the USA and came back within 1.5 weeks, better than it was, So, just because it didnt go to japan doesnt mean it wasnt sent to a tamron service center.

Your lenses should all give very good performane,  along with the 5d MK III you have capabilities undreamed of 10 years ago! Even the 50 f/1.4 will be sharp if stopped down a  bit, to 2.8+.  Wide angle lenses do have a hard time at the corners of full frame cameras, but often that is not crucial

I hope you had fun on your trip! The shots you posted look good so far!
I have some very similar jelly shots as your first two, from the boston aquarium.
I REALLY like your third shot of the jelly!

I praise your ability to speak english at all, it is my only language and I have enough trouble with it! :-/

Ok, about your question: This is a grey area. Lenses produce an analog image, and sensors are digital.
A 10 MP sensor has about 10 million possible points of data (ignore the RGB filter subject). Even a soft lens has a near infinate number of data points, being an analog device.

So, with any lens worth its lens-cap, will resolve more detail with more megapixels, but eventually the results are not noticable

However, the sharper a lens is, the more precise the detail hitting the sensor will be, giving each pixel it's own data, and therefore  makeing a crisper image, even if the MP are the same.

Canon has some of the sharpest lenses out there, and I have gotten to use one of them quite a bit, the EF 70-200 F/2.8 IS II

On an 8 MP 30d this lens will outresolve My tamron 70-300 (at the same 200 MM setting)by a tad on my 18 MP 60d
So essentially my tamron is sending "blur" to 10 of my 18 megapixels. BUT If the tamron is put on the 30d, (8 MP) the results are a fair amount worse than on the 18 MP. 

conclusion: Better glass helps more than more megapixels, But BOTH do help.

Technical Support / Re: 5D MK2: Tones split in live view at 100%

I would update the firmware to the newest version if it is not already. Maybe even if it is

So, my 60D didnt have any hot pixels show up from ISO 100-1000 with a lens and lens cap on in a dark room.
I took the lens cap off to let in whatever light may have been in my very dark room and above ISO 800 there were 2 hot pixels I could see in exact same spot in multiple shots, indicating a hot pixel.
But this only happened with some light hitting the sensor, so apparently they are just over-reacting pixels, not always hot.

I took the lens off and did a "manual cleaning" for 30 seconds in the dark room, and took another test shot, and the hot pixels were still there, bummer. I have only ever noticed my hot pixels in shots of stars, as one of the 2 hot pixels is kinda blue looking.

I wonder if "cleaning" in a darkroom or with a body cap on would get rid of the hot pix. Im gunna check for hot pixels and do a test haha I will let you know!

5D MK III Sample Images / Re: Early Shot

Nice nice! I appreciate people putting pictures they are proud of up, and having the guts to. It like throwing yourself out there for everyone to pick apart. Good work, hope to see more!

If you manually clean the sensor for at least 30 seconds (just enable manual cleaning dont actually have to touch the sensor) it will detect and map out dead pixels. At least it does on my 60d. Im pretty sure this is done prior to getting a new camera, dead pixels are like dust- you will eventually have some no matter what
