PowerShot Cameras / Will the S100 successor have a larger sensor?

Will Canon increase the sensor size of the S100 in its successor to deliver more MP with better IQ rather than just more MP?

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: My D800 Review

Over at Luminous Landscape, they went with the Tamron 70-300 VC and the Sigma 120-300/2.8.

Both of these reviews make it quite clear that the Tamron is quite easily the equal of the Canon 24-70 MkI.

I'd suggest going to a store and trying out different Tamron 24-70's if you are having trouble.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / DxO compares the 5D Mark III with the D800

Even if you think DxO don't know anything and their testing is rubbish, you should have a read of this as they go into more detail about their testing, specifically the signal-to-noise testing:

At this point, given that Canon can't deliver, don't you think it is a bit early to be discussing price?

WTF do they need to put the "3D" series in a 1D-like body?

Can't they deliver us a 3D in a body like the EOS 3 series?

Vertical rotation isn't absolutely required...

Or is this just to justify putting it in a more expensive price bracket?

Tamron is more like all purpose workaround lens with very good, but not great IQ.

The center sharpness is outstanding with nearly every focal length and f-stop reaching well into the "excellent" category.

Aside from the "onion bokeh", this Tamron lens has better IQ than Canon's 24-105/f4 "L". And they're about the same price.

To put this in shopping terms, instead of buying the Canon, you buy the Tamron lens, get better IQ and an extra f-stop of light.

What's not to love about that?

What I heard is the reflex mirror problem because of the 14fps continious shoot

Previously I imagined it to be the AF at f/8 issue but if they've problems like this then that'll do it.

Many or even most people have a point and shoot camera with a small sensor, and a huge depth of field.  I've bought little used DSLR's from many who just felt that it was out of focus due to the shallow depth of field, they preferred the everything in focus look.
So, I think you might be right, the average casual point and shoot person has been trained to expect everything to be in focus, and they are uncomfortable to the point of thinking something is defective with a shallow depth of field.

+1 on this.

There's a similar issue with audio - so many young folks expect good quality audio to sound like MP3s and are uncomfortable when they hear real fidelity that comes from a CD.

Maybe we'll have red af points and f8 in the revised version.

My money would be on this too.
