because the sigma is a better lens than canon optically and mechanically? also someone would prefere the gold ring than red one

Don't you mean, you'd rather a silver "A" than the red ring?

I had the 35L. simply amazing lens!! If price was near equal, why buy Sigma? I'm not put off by 3rd party glass, a I love Tokina and some Tammys I've owned. I would try to get a used copy for about 700 or so once plenty are in the market....assuming the lens is as good as advertised.

a camera is not just a sensor, but other things like AF for example...5d mkiii willbe a way better camera than 6d

EOS Bodies / Re: 7D vs 5D2???
« on: November 20, 2012, 05:29:59 PM »
I'm sure this has been covered a dozen times before but I'm really struggling to make a decision.  I want to upgrade from my T2I but I still plan on using it extensively.  I shoot mainly wildlife, old buildings, anything in nature.  I currently own a canon 10-22, 24-70v1, 100-400L and 1 of my favorites, the 100 macro.  I love the extended reach of having a crop sensor so I was leaning towards the 7D (although I do not shoot sports).  I think all of these lenses minus the 24/70 tell me to go 7D.  I think I would miss that extra reach if I went with the 5D2, but I do like the thought of better low light capabilities.  I feel I'm a little limited on the crop sensor with my 24-70 but I can always back up. I was discussing my dilemma with a friend and he suggested a 5D2 with a 1.4 extender.  Would that somewhat equal out the reach id be losing by switching to full frame?  I would love any help on this.

a 1d mark iii would a better upgrade path

this topic would be in third party, not in eos one

poias wanted to say that the photodiodes of canon sensors are smaller for the same mpix

My Rebels already sit in a drawer while I take my D5100s all over the place.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Nikon Sales Rising
« on: November 11, 2012, 08:37:40 AM »
Apparently, Nikon sales is rising.

http://www.nikon.com/about/ir/ir_library/result/index.htm

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.


how much moneys nikon did in the quarter? canon did over 900 millions usd...nikon in 6 months less than half of moneys with big hit compared with last year results while selling more...maybe they are spending a bit too much in r&d (licensing sensors from sony...lol)

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Pricing
« on: November 11, 2012, 08:32:55 AM »
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.

my 70-200 f/2.8 OS has a good autofocus hit rate...i have to audjust a bit with mcrofus adj on 50D a +6...with the old 70-200 f/2.8 ii i had to psuh to a +15.

the speed is slower than canon, also because they dont provide a limiter, but i dont think thet af speed of 35mm will be much lower than canon equivalent.

i tought they provide software to adjust focus also on camera that doesnt have mfa... am i wrong? that's a very nice option; never seen on any lens from other manufacturers

Lenses / Re: EF 24-70 f/4L IS & EF 35 f/2 IS
« on: November 06, 2012, 05:13:24 PM »
You are both wrong.
Hybrid IS means it compensates for two types of camera/lens movement.

Read here:
http://www.canon.com/news/2009/jul22e.html

It is for angle shake and shift shake.

It is ideal for recording handheld video.


infact the first lens where hubryd is has been implemented is the macro 100L IS, that's  the ideal for video recording ;)

the hynrid IS has been devloped for macro shooting

« on: November 06, 2012, 05:11:01 PM »
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 dont think that taking the japanese price and converting on other currency is a good thing...the jap prices are generally higher than other countries

and yes...i agree with you...haveing a standard zoom lens that is able to do some macro works is a very nice thing

the new 24-70 is a standard zoom lens and it is almost a real macro ...impressive result by canon.

this is the most complete all around lens to date

EOS Bodies / Re: [Poll] Canon Reign Supreme Again?
« on: November 04, 2012, 12:38:33 PM »
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.

even my 50d is capable of this....lol (fanboysm replied by fanboysm)
