My Rebels already sit in a drawer while I take my D5100s all over the place.
Apparently, Nikon sales is rising.
Do we have any figures on Canon's sales? I know Nikon market share is still below that of Canon but I hope Canon do something with it not only on the marketing side but also on the technology side.
I agree that the price is fantastic, but how many folks here are confident enough in terms of Sigma's AF speed and accuracy to purchase this pre-order? I ask this in all seriousness, I'm curious to see especially the responses of folks who own the newer Sigma lenses. I sold all of mine 3 years ago after not enjoying hit/miss rate very much.
You are both wrong.
Hybrid IS means it compensates for two types of camera/lens movement.
It is for angle shake and shift shake.
It is ideal for recording handheld video.
it is dubbed hybrid is just because the lens is almost a macro (0.7 macro factor...wow)
Agree agree agree. That's the only arrow in the quiver (along with better IQ, to be fair) that might justify this $1800 price from the translation.
I'm probably in the minority here that I'm more likely to bring my relatively small and light 100L macro over my 70-200 F/2.8L IS II on trips. So if this magnification is true, this could become an epic kill-two-birds-with-one-not-so-big-or-heavy-stone sort of lens for travel.
I don't know where the better high ISO performance argument comes from. Traditionally, Canon had the higher resolution while Nikon had better high ISO capabilities. The 3Ds is still the best performing low-light camera (with the 1Dx just catching up).
d800 ISO 8063 1/100 F/1.8 50mm. No post-processing (import to Lightroom, export to JPEG), High-ISO NR off.
EDIT - The above comment is true since the D3 of course.
The effect this has on available budgets is quite profound:
Sony invest about 1.0-1.5 billion dollars per year in new and improved lithography and processing lines. Having spent almost 7 billion on the Kumamoto TEC site for the last 5 years, next year the smaller Nagasaki TEC is getting 1.5 billion next year.
This IN ITSELF is more than the total revenue of Canon Semiconductor.
