EOS-M / Re: EOS M Autofocus Performance Won't Improve via Firmware [CR2]
« on: February 19, 2013, 10:36:53 PM »
I really doubt Canon won't take the advantage of a firmware update to try to market it as an AF improvement and then leave it as an unquantifiable statement about improved AF.

It is funny how many people knew this would be a stinker before it saw the inside of a showroom.  1st gen is not an excuse  - I would have fired the people who let a subpar product see light of day.  We are too kind to these people and show way too much loyalty.

I have been on the sidelines with my Rebel Xsi because I am a casual photographer and don't need this equipment to earn my living.  I will continue to wait one more cycle to see if Canon can fix AF issues with the Rebel, M series or the 6D and not keep making silly mistakes (one point AF on 6D)  - if the next product does not deliver then I guess Sony or Nikon will be getting my money.

EP-1?
X100?
X-pro1?
Iphone?
Ipad?
Windows Vista? (contrast win7pro)
Pretty much any 1st gen system or serious overhaul to a previous system.


All had serious flaws that is caused by 1st gen syndrome, compare 2nd gen products to these and its obvious of they're flaws. I never adopt 1st gen products.

Would you consider Sony RX1 is 1st gen of FF in compact body? Took over 1k photos with RX1, I didn't see any issues yet? including AF speed

You said "I never adopt 1st gen products", I thought you had 5D C before 5D III?  and what about your all time fav 135L?

Well yes. DPreview even agrees the RX1 has its flaws and so have other indie reviews. Like the the first IPhone, its ludicrously over priced.

I never adopted the 5Dc at release, I bought it well into the mk2 era. The 135L had its optical base in the FD 135mm, and improved on that design. Great product.

Also I own a d30 but why does that matter?

I still use El-cheapo Cowboy triggers and manual flash control. It allows me to mix any brand of speedlite I desire and do so on the cheap.

My real Investments are in big strobes like PCB Einsteins.

FWIW, looking at my local CL today there's a 300/2.8L IS (MkI) for $4200 and an 800/5.6L IS for $11K (overpriced, IMO).


Wish I could see nice gear like that on my end of CL.

It's not uncommon here in Texas. I found nothing I wanted so far today. :|

Lenses / Re: 180 3.5 as a PORTRAIT LENS
« on: February 19, 2013, 12:14:11 PM »
Sure, Why not? I used a 1970's K-mount Cosina 200mm F/4 on my 7D as a portrait lens.

Pretty much anything over 85mm will make a decent head & shoulders traditional portrait lens.

What If.... It also had built In RT triggers for speedlites? I'd trade that for GPS/WIFI anyday :o

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 1DX vs 5DIII Wildlife Comparison
« on: February 18, 2013, 06:18:02 PM »
1Dx > 5D3 but then again 2x 5D3's = 1Dx. :|

Haha~.. Btw Thanks for the great reviews on your blog=)

Thank you. I feel bad because I want to wrap up the 135L review soon but I've been shooting with it so much that I haven't even bothered with the review. It's that good.

EOS Bodies / Re: mhm... open letter to canon?
« on: February 18, 2013, 02:51:50 PM »
Haha you guys who were complaining were dumb! The 6D's one AF point is absolutely amazing I heard! Have a little faith in the company, jeez!

Amazing? No, The 5D3 AF was amazing the moment I used it. The 6D AF felt like a re-gurdgetated 20D AF with a better center point. Which is the entire problem, The center point is excellent.

A Canon Tele-compressor? Like Meta-bones?  :o

If so, We'd have the ultimate selection of EF Lenses w/ extra speed.

PowerShot / Re: Comparable Camera to the Sony RX100

The G15 has a faster lens, more reach, and Has a hotshoe. Which means Strobe HSS @ 1/2000th which can be very useful for strobists.

Sell those redundant lenses and get the 70-300L. It makes sense in your kit.

24-105 + 70-300L + 50mm Would be a great GP kit.

5D3 or 5D2. I don't see value in 6D yet.
