Oh dear, really hope this 18mp sensor is new and blows the socks off people! Otherwise theres no change.

I dont really agree with the comments above.

I use my cameras professionally and love my lenses. I really like the mirrorless market too and bought a twin lens kit NEX 5N because it was cheap and the IQ is much better than the 18mp sensor from Canon. But the DSLR is a dream to use in comparison, although its good and small I find the AF jumps around and focuses on things I don't want it to and I miss the shot. I also like a proper viewfinder not the new EVFs.

I like the DSLR form factor and have all the lenses to boot this is a good compromise for people like me who want something small when you don't want to carry the big gun cameras or want to be less conspicuous.

Although I hate that sensor it is a dog! Reason why I was so disappointed with my 7D and sold it.

It would seem Canon is hanging on for an unhealthy amount of time with this tech. Even if it is Digic 5 what exactly is the difference? It processes more data? Yet the 650D has been said to be less sharp than the 600D.

But I like the idea of this small DSLR. I really dont like EVFs. This could be a good compromise. Shame they didnt put any new tech in it.

Took these tonight, was about 10 minutes late for the full light show :( Lesson learned, research location more thoroughly, get there an hour before and wait for the light rather than chase it!

End result wasn't too bad tho.

Sounds like a 5DMKIII is the answer

I had the 17-85mm and it was awful.

The 24-105 is very sharp in comparison. Maybe just needs some good AFMA

Amazing. Really enjoyed your video

No what he means is the depth of field, not that you loose a stop and a half of light.

I recently bought a Sony Nex 5N for £400 with the twin lens system was a bargain and a great lightweight all round camera for the days when I dont want to carry my 5DMKIII.

I also use a Bronica ETRSI on the odd occasion.

Hi Ivan,

I have to agree with some of the comments above. I had a look at your blog and I dont think you choose the best images from that set. The way you have described your process fits these images although I like the awkward slightly unappealing nature of them.

I also had a look at your other images.

12 minutes in Booysens. I think these are great, the awkwardness of the images and the documentary style is great. Reminds me much of Walker Evans. The documents are not aesthetic, they are very revealing and awkward.

The general public and the Farm Security Administration hated Edward westerns photographic style. What I would say is keep shooting. If you were doing a fine art photography course you could easily exhibit those Booysens pics. They would be appreciated more, unlike the aesthetic snappers style on a forum like this. No offence meant to the forum users :)

Stumbled upon this one while out wandering around Newcastle Uk. Luckily had my walk around camera Sony Nexus 5N which I love!
