EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Would I benefit from going full frame?
« on: November 07, 2012, 10:57:40 PM »

First off, if i understand this correctly then f2.8 on 7d is more like f2.8*1.6 = f4.4ish on FF. Appreciate it if someone could correct me on this.

I think you are correct.  The light gathering is the same for the lens,  if they are the same focal lengths.  For instance, a 31mm or 30mm lens on crop sensor will gather the same light as a 50mm lens on full frame, at the same aperture.  If you are using the exact same lens for crop sensor on a full frame camera, the focal length would be wider and more light will be gathered.  The bokeh or out of focus blur would also be affected by the crop factor.

+1 Thanks.

I was in your exact place about a year ago so i think i can understand your situation.

First off, if i understand this correctly then f2.8 on 7d is more like f2.8*1.6 = f4.4ish on FF. Appreciate it if someone could correct me on this.

what did i do? well i din't want to compromise on the frame rate and the AF on 7d. so i waited out and bought the 5d3 last March. 6fps is way better than 3.7fps and the AF on 5d3 is from a different planet :)

I own both the 24-105 (came as a kit lens) and 17-40 (bought later). Agreed they are not the best of zooms around but if you are on a budget both these lenses allow you to do what you want to do. Obviously, PP can fix some of the issues. I was recently shooting at an university fashion show and i was consistently at iso3200ish with the 24-105 and the files were amazingly clean (which was not the case with my 7d).

My suggestion would be if you can wait then get the 5d3 - it 'll probably set you good for 2-3 years.

fwiw, i've been ordering on amazon for the last 4 years and shipping stuff to India (agreed not higher priced products). No issues so far and their packaging / delivery has been amaz(on)ing!

Screen Protectors:

I've been using this for couple of weeks now. Happy with it so far. If you read the comments in the link there is a complaint with respect to using wide angle lens in live view. I haven't had the opportunity to test it myself though.

The 3Ds is still the best performing low-light camera (with the 1Dx just catching up).

That maybe. but the very fact that 1dx is pitted against at least three other dslrs - D800, D3s(?), D4 in shadow noise, Low light, God-knows-what-other-features in that order, in-fact, speaks a lot about 1dx. Don't you think?

If you are looking for a better alround camera then you won't be disappointed with 5d3 Period

Could it be that HDR is enabled?

if the exposure isn't changing then the lag could be due to some other setting/issue.

Actually, Nikon can start (re)naming their cameras as DXO4, DXO800 etc.

That's an impressive bio Sanj!

Off topic but..
"5D MkIII or 6D??? | EF 35f1.4 | EF 50f1.4 | EF 70-200f2.8L MkII | TC 1.4x III | TC 2x III"
Unless all you do is video.. Definitely the 5D mkIII. My opinion...

From my experience in using 5d3 - it won't disappoint you at all. The video tends to be mushy with respect to fine details (outdoor - on grass for example) as other tests have shown but i don't know if 6d will be any better.

Whether 5d3 is worth the difference in price versus still untested 6D?  well its not an easy call until you can test both the bodies.
