EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Successors [CR1]
« on: June 28, 2012, 07:38:45 PM »
I know I am showing my ignorance, but I'll ask anyway. APS-H (1.3) - Would it support EF-S? I would assume not! I only own one (10-22mm).

hummm some sigma lenses works but with an very high vignetting/blur on the edges of frame; you can sell your 10-22 an buy something else anyway

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mk III vs D800/E, is the 5D3 better at anything?
« on: June 28, 2012, 07:33:40 PM »
The 5D3 is better at being more expensive. ;D

That is soooo good.  Canon took a page from their own playbook of Super-Tels and priced the 5D3 at the absolute top of their range.  With a vertical grip, extra battery, and an L bracket the 5D3 is a $4,000 camera.  And yet I'm hoping for even more.  I'm ready for a 1D style camera, 45MP for around $5,000 and I'll be willing to pay for it.  I've added a D800 to my tool set and I'm loving the high MP results.  I've been able to almost double the print sizes I print and I'm going to different presentation media (laminates) for commercial purposes.  More technology is giving me new types of business for my art.  But my Canon glass is not getting much use right now.  I need a camera body from Canon that can equal or best the D800.  Canon - Are you listening?  I'll wait.

really? so you wasted your time on those years...your business could have expanded years ago buying an high mpix MF camera

I keep saying APS-H is just too good to shelve.  It doesn't give up very much to the 5DIII sensor as it is.  I wouldn't hesitate to add a 1.3 7D to my stable.  :)

Could this be the 120mps monster they showed a couple of years ago - that would wipe the smirk of the D800 fanboys  8) 8) 8)

120mpix,40 EV, 2m iso usable and sub $1500 price of course … of course the 9.5 fps of 2 years ago is unacceptable....we need 16 fps as minimum :D

I guess everyone will be selling their D800's to go for this one.

yes and the next step is to add additional arrays to expand the DR to 45-40 EV :D

I think that SLRs, like everything else, will eventually die, being replaced by the next thing...  when and how this will happen, only time will tell!  :)  I think mirrorless is the first step, and the fact that a lot of the P&S cameras are getting better and better!

Yes, but even if P&S reach SLR in terms of IQ, noise and ISO performance, we will not have the same DOF using small sensors....

we are not talking about cameras with small sensors, but cameras without a mirror/pentaprism...or at least is what i am talking about

in the long run… yes

In the long run, we are all dead.

Not until you can hold the camera up to your eye and actually see what you are shooting as clearly as you can with today's SLRs.

yap of course...and i would add with a very low lag

What about adding some kind of focus bracketing? Even with center-point spot focusing, I often find that it is a bit off. Being able to shoot a bracket of images at slightly different focus points would make it easier to nail the perfect point.


it would be cool, but for fast moving targets you would risk to miss every shoot

For amateurs and vacationers yes, definitely.  This will overtake the Rebel-end line up over time.   But it's a 2.7x crop camera, and the behavior of the lenses won't match the behavior of full frame lenses at the same calculated focal length views in terms of background compression and DOF, etc. etc.

nono… i think that camera with bigger sensors and so on will become non-slr too

Thanks - actually, the lowest price seems to be rather ~3100€, and if only one supplier is listing it that low it sounds a bit dodgy. I once fell for the lowest price, but these suppliers simply might not have the item in stock but wait for a near price drop of the original manufacturer (Canon in this case). This in combination with horrendous fees for pay after delivery will engineer people into paying up front and having to wait for ages. Many will cancel the contract, but some may not, so that's a business model too for catching customers.

But maybe it's just a terrific offer and I'm paranoid. On the other hand, being paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you :-p

under 3000€ here in italy


we are dumping the price with money we will get from Germany ...hahaha

5 pieces avaiable

nikon d800 it's around 2500€ btw

Pentax FF + tamron or sigma lenses = kid toys.

yap...it like to shoot panoramas with a 16-35L ii compared to a 14-24 nikon...but maybe the 16-35 is a portrait lens judging how soft borders are :D

sigma deliver great lenses


21mpix,22mpix,24mpix.... but who cares. sony got a 24mpix FF camera since 2008 and no-one cared

a studio camera? low fps, very high quality/detail at low iso…i guess that's a studio camera

I was just wondering who would be the first...why not me? Here is a warm up for the inner masochist in you...

It is really too late in coming out so I am going to Nikon again.
I have dust in my sensor. Should I return it or cry now?
It is too expensive and I won't stand for it. (Expected response A: It is cheaper than the last one when converted to Yen in 1995 when adjusted for inflation and the price of rice in Taiwan)
HELP! I don't like the wedding pictures I just took with it. Any ideas? Am I in the right career?
There is banding in ISO over 25,600 and my shoes are too tight when I shoot with it.
I don't understand and don't like the auto focus system whatever it is.
Why is it less available than the new friggin' Rebel? Does that make it more expensive on purpose?
There a color cast when I look at images from the sofa just over the TV in the evening. The D800 doesn't do that.
I 'm not a pixel peeper but...
Maybe if they made a APS-H sensor version it would be perfect and I could afford one.
I think Canon screwed us again, but what L lens is best for shooting my spawn when they are running in the dark?
Will the auto focus be better than the 7D or at least my 40D? Should I sell my Mark II?
I haven't seen one but I am sure Canon screwed us.
What is the best lens you don't own?
Which is best queue to complain about? Adorama, B&H or Amazon?
I have ten thousand dollars I don't know what to do with. Do you?

ahahhahaha… great, but it's too late

the price for the k-3 in your article is rumored to be 2800usd...i can see canon put in a corner by k-3...lol.

a camera with no lens, and from what i know neither sigma-tamron or other are producing k-Mount ff lenses, but maybe i am wrong

if you dont need articulated screen you can buy a nikon d7000 with 18-105 vr, new a 1399 used a 1199 from amazon marketplace

pentax k5 is a very capable camera, but you havent a great selection of lenses and the marketability (exists a word like that) isnt soo good as canon or nikon

if video is really important maybe a 650D (t4i) is better, but it's a different class of camera
