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.

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.

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.

So just get 6D. Better shadow noise performance and you can change the focussing screen. What about putting 1.4xtender on your 70-200? or 135L with extender.

If there would be one near me id be happy if you could try out L lenses there. They should install some 1200mm lens to try out too :P

None, after the experiences with the delays, the initial 5d3/24-70ii price and the 6d features it's clear non-Rebel users (who just own the kit lens) very seldom switch and Canon can get away with just about everything - people complain, but that's about it.

I remember when i got into photography the 5d mk2 was announced. People opened threads and complained about it being overpriced and such. Many people came up with "I stick with my old trusty 5d!". When the 5dmk2 was established it was worshipped and like the ultimate camera to get.

And now exactly the same happened when the 5d mk3 came out. "Overpriced, bad DR compared to Nikon" and so on. And now? Yes you guess right...(nearly) everybody thinks the 5dmk3 is such an awesome camera.

Its just complaining cuz people want to complain. Im sure if u are into something else (cars, fishing rods, RC cars, just something) the exact same thing happens in these forums. Good example are World of Warcraft Forums :P Its a major complain fest there but yet the game is played by over 10 Mio people constantly.

Im gonna stick with Canon cuz i like their L lenses and the nifty fifty entry lens which is somewhat legendary.

If i had to care that much about DR +- id probably be a pro with enough money to buy whatever camera i want. For my hobby i think its just ridculous if Id complain about such stuff.

People, seriously? Discussing what your favorite 2 lenses are in the context of a house fire? What next - a thread where you're in a sinking ship and what lenses you'll save?

Whereas some people would take photos in their spare time, some think about what lenses they'll save in case their house burns down. Ha, that's why I love this forum. :P

Its not much different than "Imagine u would be on a desrted island. What would the 2 items (lenses in this case) you would bring with u?"

I think the N will be sold in countires where WiFi or GPS isnt allowed for the public. Perhaps check North Korea vendors

My house was burglarized last year and much of my photography gear was stolen (along with most everything else of value in my home).

Reminds me of "The best camera you have is the one you left home" :P

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: DxOMark "Perceptual Megapixel"
« on: January 07, 2013, 04:40:29 AM »
The closer u fit the pixels on the sensor near each other the easier noise will start to appear. And any kind of noise even if so subtle means image loss.
In worst case u have a P&S camera with a really tiny sensor with many pixels so close to each other that it will be outresolved by the same sensor with less megapixels.
Some people even say the 1100D has the best IQ in the APS-C line due to this. It just got 12MP but "perceptual MP" is more like 16MP.
But i think this is really not an issue on APS-C or FF sensors. APS-C would be like 60megapixels or such before the pixels come too close to each other.

Is there anything else that can do this for its size?

old film slrs or rangefinders...cheaper a lot too . p.s. a good lense makes the difference. if the photos would have been taken with a stock lens i would be impressed but not like this.
