9D - Entry level FF @ $1600 (Build like a rebel or xxD, not highly sealed, low FPS, xxD or 7D AF)

if the D600 is in the same league that would be fine.
but i think canon could not afford that the D600 is much better feature wise.

im only guessing here but a 1600-1800$ fullframe will create a lot of interest, in my opinion.
I believe Canon would risk that their name would carry a slightly inferior spec's camera as long as it isn't too far out. They pitted the 19pt AF of the 7D against the 51pt Af of the D300/s, although they did have the FPS advantage.

i think for moving subjects the af of 7d performs better, not talking about the advantage in shutter  lag the 7d has, and the 50% more pixels on sensor.

it's depens waht use you are going to do with camera...for a sp camera 5d mk3 is better tha d800; btw both cameras arent aimed at mass market

I am surprised no one here has pointed out that the 60D lacks the AF micro-adjustment feature.  I have a 60D and really like it but was unaware it lacked that feature when I bought it.  At the time I chose it over the 7D because ergonomically it just felt better in my hand.  I had the 60D + 18-200 when I went to Africa last year and was very happy with that combo (perhaps I lucked out and got a very good copy of that lens).  But as I started to accumulate lenses, not all of them played nice with the 60D and I had no way to adjust for that.  I got so frustrated that I bought a used 7D, calibrated my lenses and now my 60D stays at home unless my husband takes it out.  So just be aware of this.  I will say that the 60D is a great camera to learn on because it is less complicated than the 7D, but for me the 7D wins.

the 60D is a joke...plain and simple. policarbonate body, limited lcd on the top, lack of MFA, and a sensor that perform  worsta than a 600d.

if i would buy a new camera in that price range i would buy a pentax k5 if interested on photos and a 650d if interested on videos.

btw i guess the 60D performed quite good in a marketing ways, so kudos to canon's marketing guys

    Look at Sony, King of the LCD TV market for about a decade, made the best quality TV's but other brands caught up in terms of features and prices came down now to the point where Sony lost so much market share they are leaving the TV business. 


in which planet? Sony is losing money from TV business since 8 straight years, even when they got the largest chunk of the market (2 years of so ago)

The autofocus is quick and accurate enough to be used in sports.

I agree with you that the 60d is a nice camera - except for sports: the af points are simply spread too far apart, and relying only on a single af point to do the tracking often doesn't do it. And the worst part is the crippled firmware, since you cannot customize *anything* of the af servo system - just use it or don't use it, from my experience with it I don't I'm sorry to say.

agree...using the servo and central point the AF is erratic, but the firmware it's not crippled … this kinda autofocus Always worked this way, from 40D to nowadays

the autofocus should be the same of 650D...for taking pactures, should be inferior for video

I don't know if it's as much an issue as a reason to make you buy a 1D body :)
The ISSUE is I have no budget for it.

that's the basic issue for a lot of people ;)

I lust after a lot of things well beyond my budget  :(

having an unlimited budget would be really boring, and probably would not exists all those models of camera/lenses ;)

Are you really consider 7D?  Why don't you wait for 70D or 7D2?

if i find a good deal yes...i can sell my 450D and 50D and get a used 7D basically for free; if 70D or 7DMKII will turn out as very good cameras, i can sell the 7D and change again...butit's just an idea.

10x for the advice….i think i will pass on 1d, too expensive and the 7d suit better my needs

EOS Bodies / Re: Which 7DII will you buy for $2000?
« on: June 10, 2012, 06:08:35 PM »
voted, but i wouldnt buy any camera for $2000


Too bad there aren't any good Nikon lenses that will utilize the full DR potential of the 800/E.

nikkon 14-24 is a very good lens for LS photography

You should upgrade your memory to 8GB years ago.  Memory is a small investment and bring huge benefit if you use PS and LR.  None of my computers is running under 8GB of memory.

my laptop is used mainly for work, so it's used more as a terminal than a workstation and i dont used PS at all, but for lightroom i have a server at work with 64gb, 8 xeon cores  and 1.4GB/sec bandwidth to a EMC2 VMAX; of course it's not a dedicated machine, i do different kida games with them.

a nice upgrade you should do is to get a good ssd for you workstations… i saw SSD Sandisk extreme getting cheap enough lately...leass than 200€ for 240GB

but we are going OT

10x for the good advice anyway

it would be better (i have a 450D and a 50D...the AF of 50D is definetly better expecially in low light situations), but as marsus said it's not the killer camera to shoot sports. i am think about to upgrade the 50d to a 7d or a 1dmk3....still undecided for the rare occasion i have to shoot sports

for what i know canon give 1 year international warrany worldwide so you would miss just 1 year of warranty

anyway here in italy the mk3 is selling for 2400 british pounds, and you would get full 2 years from canon europe

since my switch to the big N

Good, Canon-trusting people of EOS land! Get out the holy water, wooden stakes and garlic and go for him!

i dont think garlic would be's effective just against vampires and as an 800 owner he cant be a vampire ;)

When a 80mb MF comes along they say the MF will struggle to compete.

I think nikon SONY can make said sensor easily

corrected… and...maybe they can in labs just as canon did and aps-h 120mpix one.

but bring it to market it's a totally different story
