Sorry for the confusion.

Anyone reading this and being reminded of the 5dMKIII thread? I don't want more than 22mp, with the D800 smashing the mp and everyone absolutely slating the 5D.

Get a grip people. I bet 80% of people buying a 700D won't do any printing all! And those that do the images won't be any bigger than A4. All the files will end up on fb or the Internet generally. So 18mp is completely overkill as it is, regardless of the competition.

This Canon vs Nikon argument is just silly really.

We have reached a point where all of the recent sensors are good enough for commercial print. I was shooting with a 40D for newspapers until about this time last year.

The D800 and D600 are so far out of this bracket you cannot compare them. It is a shame but bitching isnt going to solve the problem.

The D800 vs 5DMKIII they couldn't be more different in their application, and although the 5DMKIII may fall behind slightly in IQ and DR at least you can use them and have accurate colour, let alone problems with the sensors.

Same with the D600 vs 6D they are both compromises. The D600 may have more points but they are spread in such a small area of the viewfinder that having 39 in that space is overkill same again with oily sensors... The 6D has also proved itself in the IQ and noise department.

When Canon finally release the new sensor tech im sure it will blow away the competition they are biding their time for a reason and for average photographers that 18mp sensor is more than adequate, old and behind admittedly but this crowd isnt really who this camera is for.

Many average people just want to take pics and Canon is a great name.

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

Lenses / Re: Is my 24-105mm f/4 L unreasonably soft?
« on: March 17, 2013, 02:59:37 PM »
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
