EOS Bodies / Re: Are you really serious about 6D?
« on: December 13, 2012, 02:50:30 PM »
6D is targeted to people with older rebel models or lower. If you just bought a 650D or 600D i dont think ur suddenly gonna buy a 6D. I think people who still use like...450D and were already aware of the "FF magic" are now finally going to get a camera they like. People with 7D are likely informed advanced users anyway and probably lurking to get a 5D long time already. 

I assume most people who come to these forums are quite educated and experienced about photography so i dont understand all this 6D bashing since the camera is not intended for such users.  6D is for beginners, people who probably never had an L lens before and perhaps never used an external flash with triggers. People who "know what they want" are going for 5D or higher anyway...EXCEPT they cant afford it. Thats also a large group of ppl targeted :P
If i gotta save my ass off to buy the 6D im also likely more appreciating my purchase and just feeling lucky i could go FF at all. At least i would be like that. And the 6D is not bad anyway. It performs worse than the 5Dmk3, yes but so does the 5Dmk3 performe worse than the 1DX same way. It doesnt make 5dmk3 a bad camera.

I wish I could shut off Nikon's ergonomics, button layout, green cast on the screen, etc etc. Nikon might just be #1 in the world for people with 4 fingers, shoot without the screen, and don't care about losing a shot in a high pressure situation because switching modes and going through menus on a Nikon is horrendous compared to a Canon

Lol i always have heard people telling nikon ergonomics and menu functionality is waaay better.

6D is good if its the best you can afford. Not everybody can spend the cash for 5d mk3 or 1dX. Plus its also hard to tell people "then just save another year for the mk3" or such...Heck im still using my 1100D (using all focus points :O ) and my only concern is to get better lenses.

1DX is the top model and expected to be used in very harsh environments so dont worry.

Lenses / Re: Zoom vs Primes?
« on: December 11, 2012, 05:17:24 AM »
If u prefer to be active and run around a lot then get primes, if not get zoom :P Its just about what kind of workstyle u prefer, quality is not a factor anymore really, except u need really wide open aperture which only primes deliver.

Lenses / Re: Why no L primes from 14 to 24mm
« on: December 09, 2012, 02:42:21 PM »
14 and 24 are not in between 14 and 24....

Thread says from 14 to 24 not "between".

Lenses / Re: Why no L primes from 14 to 24mm

There is 24mm 1.4L prime and 8-15mm L fisheye.

Lenses / Re: APS-C lens mm are correct
« on: December 07, 2012, 03:23:33 PM »
I cant understand why this topic always gets discussed so much? a 50mm lens is a 50mm lens

A photo taken from the same position with a FF camera will look like it was taken with a 50mm lens. A photo taken with an APS-C will look like it was taken with an 80mm lens.

Thats all what the crop factor is about and its so easy and clear to understand, why gotta discuss so much?

Its just common to say "equivalent of blabla on APS-C". Maybe its just the wrong term used but so what? everybody knows what it supposed to mean.

Canon EF Prime Lenses / Re: Pictures taken with the humble 35 f2
« on: December 04, 2012, 05:32:46 PM »
The church looks like its a rendering, really cool :D im also thinking about getting the 35mm f2 from canon since the other options are too expensive for me and sometimes im just too lazy to use my m42 35mm lens and manual focus with my tiny "keyhole" viewfinder. liveview is not handy for me.

i heard the 35mm f2 is just average but the photos on pixel-peeper dont look bad to me...confused :(

Third Party Lenses (Sigma, Tamron, etc.) / Re: Sigma 35mm 1.4

There are 16mm cinema prime lenses.

The one and only lens that I am lusting for right now doesn't even exist.

It is the 14-24L. Canon's equivalent to Nikon's 14-24 - one of the best lenses ever made.

A 16-35 III would also be ok, as long as it is razor sharp across the frame.

Get Nikon to EoS adapter, problem solved :P

Sigma 35mm 1.4
Canon 100 2.8L macro
Canon 50mm 1.2L
Canon 24mm II L

Try your hand at film. The entire process. THAT is an art and a craft. Any fool can press a button, move a mouse and a slider. I know  because I can do it ;) (Both film user and self  acclaimed digital fool)

Im also shooting film just dont develop it myself (i guess that was ur point). But i think its a challenge since i cant just post process the hell out of it as easy as with digital.

EOS Bodies / Re: Downgrade to crop
« on: December 03, 2012, 09:47:44 AM »
Oh yes bigger and brighter viewfinder is definitly a reason why i wanna go FF as soon as possible. Anytime i jump on my analog EOS im like...ehh....this camera costs 15 euro but has a nicer viewfinder than my digital one...

But i think only 5D and higher got "pentaprism" which is brighter than "pentamirror" that 6D uses if im correct.

If i was you i would go fullframe and get 1,4x TC. Sure u lose light but FF camera lets more light in and 6D or higher offer really good high ISO so it doesnt matter.

The main reason why im annoyed of my APS-C sometimes is that its so hard to get the lenses i want. Sure, there are many lenses but i always gotta calculate the 1,6* factor and suddenly some lenses become not what i really wanted  :'( If i want 50mm i get like ..44mm or 56 or something like this e.g.

Hmmm.  I'm considering upgrading my T1i to a 6D, but my 100 2.0 and 200 2.8 give me the perfect focal length for indoor sports.  A 70-200 would likely get me 90%+ of the right focal length for outdoor sports. 
Does it possibly make sense to stick with a crop sensor for telephoto/sports needs and a full frame with a "normal" lens for general photography?

I think many people use a 7D for sports. Other option would be to get 1,4x teleconverter.
