More DR and less noise sounds nice, thanks for explaining it to me. Would it be a big difference? 1/2 stop sensitivity sounds not much to me. Will i even notice it in my photos ?

. the key word here is (quite correctly) "integrated". If only integration was a reality....  Sorry for offtop.

Well if integration goes so far as they work and have a social life in a community where they happy its fine i think. If they are lazy and live off social welfare thats not good of course, but that applies to ANY person no matter where they from.
I think there are too many white people who expect foreigners to totally convert into "white people". Reminds me of german people living in another country....in a german community area....speaking german...eating german food and so on. Its just the same except it somehow seems like white people always go crazy about foreigners o_O
TBH i dont know much about the UK welfare system i only know there are a lot of foreigners in germany who live off government money and have no will to change it. But there are also a lot who work (and do jobs german ppl rather not want to do often).
But basically its just a big wuss since we have enough cash in our country to support these people. Its just easy to blame minorities i guess. And not to mention the number of white people here who are basically too lazy to work...

The bokeh is fine in the photo isnt it? If he really used 1.2 then it probably looked like it was taken "somewhere".

EOS-M / Re: Micro four DoF and lenses
« on: January 21, 2013, 12:42:54 PM »
What is an opstacle to make it 0.6 or 0.7?

The biggest obstacle would be the price for selling it. The 0.95 lens we have today costs about 10000$. 0.6 would be like..100.000$ or maybe more :P Whos gonna buy that for a 4/3 system? ^^ And enjoy the 1/8000 or faster shutter speed you will need if you use it wide open in the sun outside. Permanent ND filter needed indoors probably :P And i dont wanna even think how shallow the DOF would be. Eyeball in focus, eyelashes blurry much :P

Im not smart. Whats the difference if we had such a sensor technology already used today? Please tell me in easy to understand words.

Lenses / Re: Having fun with a couple of 100-years-old lenses

Old but gold literally :)

I'm just jealous I can't afford the 85L, but can get the exact same shot with my 70-200 L f/4....

So? I heard people that got the pulitzer prize award have used cameras which are totally stoneage technology compared to todays digital world. Does it make a difference? no.
Getting a good shot is not about the lens u have.  Anyway the president is not a model and doesnt want to be presented like that :P Its all about good documentary photos not more not less. Camera settings also look a lot like typical studio settings. Bokeh doesnt make crappy picture awesome its just the distorted view of many people thinking a photo looks great when there is so much bokeh present...

EOS Bodies / Re: Older Canon cameras
« on: January 18, 2013, 10:18:48 AM »
I got an old film EOS for my EF lenses, cost like 15 Euro and does the job well.
For anything older id probably get a m42 camera. Spotmatic, Memotron, MTL5 etc.
At the momente im trying to get a somewhat cheap 6x6 or 6x4.5
U can also check around for an old Rangefinder camera (there is not only Leica) that might be something different :)

EOS Bodies / Re: New Rebel T4i vs 60d/7D
« on: January 18, 2013, 10:17:22 AM »
I would just get the Rebel in your case. Upgrading from APS-C to another APS-C doesnt make things different much. Just save ur money til u can a "real" FF upgrade. 7D i only suggest it if u need the high FPS. Next level from Rebel is 6D imho. An upgrade should be a real difference not a different body material and button layout. Fullframe is more different noise wise, lens FOV wise etc.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon: not responsible for typos?
« on: January 18, 2013, 03:59:08 AM »
Same here in germany. Imho it has nothing to do with the education level. Some people just cant even speak their native tongue properly.

238
Im still in doubt if its really that simple as just putting an inversed magnifying glass on the sensor while mainting the same image quality.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: 18 Stops of Dynamic Range - RED Dragon
« on: January 16, 2013, 04:38:44 PM »
Why you need new Canon sensors like every year? If they pump out something awesome every 5 years im down with that. Would be crap if my new FF purchase would be blown away by next years release.

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS not good for NASA?
« on: January 14, 2013, 04:55:33 AM »
I guess they asked several companies, compared prices and then stuck with Nikon cuz it was cheapest.
Anyway who cares what brand some people in space are using? Does it even matter as long as they get usable photos? Probably the guy who shoots the photos is just a Nikon user anyway thats why he got that camera on board.
