I prefer the original composition with the launch pad. It brings my eye back into the frame after looking at the blurry bird and then back to the launch pad. Without it, it doesn't do anything for me.

I wouldn't buy a lower MP 5D4 than my 5D3. Plus knowing canon being canon, they'd want you to spend more money on the high ISO champ the 1Dx2 rather than a low MP 5D4. 24mp or a 32mp sensor with improved performance would make the 5D4 more General purpose than a 18mp sensor when the extra resolution is needed. (Especially since stock sites usually require at least 20mp to sell the largest size.)I like the idea of a 24-32mp sensor as it gives the flexibility of both resolution and of ISO performance. The 1Dx2 would be the high ISO champ in the future lineup, the 5Ds studio camera, and 5D4 as a general purpose all rounder.
I'd probably keep my 5D3 with a spec list like this.
I see the need for 2 5D cameras. High ISO camera, lower MP, no need to 1D build (though it would be nice if price is right) and an intermediate MP camera, similar to the Nikon D810.
Don't expect 12 FPS, that is the territory of 1Dx.
Canon is teh best. Thats why the 6D is more expensive than that horrible D800. I've bought alot of gear used through craigslist and I've never lost money on a purchase. To see a 5D2 under 1K is unreal and soon they will all be under 1K.It's probably the prices overseas that make the 5d2 expensive. Here's a beatup but working functional 5d2 for 900$, a total bargain
Ugh, seeing the US prices for used gear like this and new gear like the 6d is really depressing
For some reason or another, over here there is a hefty premium on "quality" gear (probably because Germany like sturdy stuff) and Canon L lenses of ff cameras are sold for ridiculously high prices. On the other hand, you can get a pristine d800 for €1200 ... €400 less than a new 6d :-o
* perpetual license available
* performance gains / use of GPU hardware
* better healing brush - selection of irregular shapes
* improved possibilities to control black&white conversion
* face recognition (as long as there is no cloud/internet/NSA backdoor involved)
* HDR directly in LR
* panorama/stitching directly in LR
All of this makes it even easier to completely jettison Photoshop (or other software) for all of my photo PP requirements
Will definitely buy the upgrade after a few weeks / first bug correcting update.

The suggestion is so good because (at least I find) the 5d2 rather overpriced esp. vs. the 6d. But if going for a 5d1, be sure you know or research the shortcomings.
Yep. I'll be holding onto my CS6 Copies for Along time. The only way adobe could strip them from my hands would be to update the .dng converter to no longer support newer camera and/or make LR-CC the only option. Both of which would officially bankrupt my trust for adobe.CC is not "ridiculously cheap", but a nasty monthly rent that I will never accept.
Especially since I won't ever touch Photoshop because of its totally un-intuitive 1980's style user interface.
It's not that it has a 1980s interface that makes in un-intuitive since stuff like Deluxe Paint and basically EVERY single other paint program back in the 80s was about 100x more intuitive. Anything you wanted to do with the others you could basically just do. Not with Photoshop.
Yeah no rental model for me. I wonder how much Adobe paid the NYT today to publish an editorial praising the rental model as if it were just a regular un-biased article. On and on about how the rental model is loved by all and was created out of the goodness of Adobe for the common man, blah blah blah. Not a single PEEP about any hint of backlash or any negative aspects.
Got broke-in last week, while our family was on mini vacation. Looks like they went through my office 1st, where all my camera gear been stored. Bodies and lenses were stored in Lowpro 200 roller - that was an easy for them.
Gear I lost:
16-35 f4 IS
24-70 f2.8 II
70-200 f2.8 IS II
600EX flashes QTY: 3
The only insured item through house insurance was 70-200.
Working with the home insurance agent right now. Will see...
Sounds like they were in-out within 5mins, the cops were there within 10mins. I been live here for last 10yrs, nothing happens until now.
