EOS Bodies / Re: Cost of Canon 5D mk III
« on: February 04, 2013, 08:00:31 PM »
I never believed the 5D3 was worth 3,500$ but I did score mine for 2499$.

As for its High ISO IQ, Its better than any crop camera canon makes. DXO even confirms this and my own usage agrees also.

Imaging Resource and DPReview confirm the opposite and publish the test photos and all test details for review (reproducibility, something DxO lacks). Should someone believe DxO or their lying eyes?

If we're going to talk experience, my experience, the experience of members at my photo club, and the experience of a friend with a rather successful wedding photography business all concur. Nobody who has ever claimed the opposite has ever been able to provide images to prove it. If you can you'll be the first.

Did you even look at the samples I posted in the other thread? 5Dc has better ISO performance than 7D in use.

I have no desire to post from DXO, as you can view this info yourself.

For reference, here is some more info on the 5Dc as an entry level FF camera.

I have both it and a 7D. My usage says the 7D is much better at high ISO.

My PC does everything a Mac can do and does it cheaper, faster, better, and with no compatibility issues.

Hmm.....so, it runs Aperture 3, and Final Cut Pro X nicely and easily?<P>
:)

On my mac, however...I can run all those OSX only apps, and with VMWare I can run windows and/or linux for anything that runs exclusively on those.<P>
Sure, you can run OSX in VMWare on your PC, but technically, it isn't legal to run OSX on non-mac hardware. <P>
Not that 'technically' ever really stands in my way on things of this nature, but I'm just saying....

Aperture 3? Don't care, have LR4.

Final Cut pro? Don't care, have Premiere pro or would Get AVID for serious work.

OSX? Eh, the only thing I might do with it is for Cocoa and old legacy stuff I have. I wouldn't pay $$$ for that.

Its all good, but I don't ever use my mac anymore. Also, Hows tethering going with the new release of mountain lion? I heard it was pretty bad. :|

For serious editing, I'd never use a laptop. too expensive, outdated too quickly, Run too hot, screens too small, too slow.

Desktops are far more powerful for less $$$ and could be built to any spec needed, upgraded, run cool, and can have large screens.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon 6D for BIF
« on: February 04, 2013, 01:34:03 PM »
I'd get a 7D before a 6D/5D2/5Dc/20D AF system. The 7D has fantastic AF.

EOS Bodies / Re: on the verge of buying, just need some final moral support
« on: February 04, 2013, 12:15:23 PM »
If you can wait, I scored a brand-new USA in the box 5D3 for 2499$ around holidays. I regularly see them for 2899$ on ebay, perhaps you should re-consider holding out a little bit longer?

Lenses / Re: How much would you pay for Canon 24-70 f/2.8 L IS

1999$
LOL, that is pretty specific ... so what you are saying is that if it is $2000 you will not be willing to pay the extra dollar? ;D

I would wait for BVI to have the sale.

In my usage, I felt comfortable in all ISO settings 100-3200 as long as you get your exposure correct. I had no issues shooting at 1600 ISO and looked much better than my 7D.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Confirms 70D; Future of Semi-Pro DSLR is FF
« on: February 04, 2013, 10:22:15 AM »
There is always that chance that maybe an APS-H 10fps 7DII with EF-s compatability is coming. I think it would be a fantastic idea If it plays out.

I think this is physically impossible. The image circle of a EF-s lens is too small to 'expose' the whole APS-H sensor.

A crop mode like Nikon?

Makes sense, buy (and pay)an APS-H senosr, and then run it in a crop mode...

The other problem is the mirror. EF-S lenses use the space that was freed by the smaller mirror for APS-C. I think there also would not be enough space for an APS-H mirror. But, you are free to use third-party APS-C lenses (Sigma, Tamron) even on a FF Canon Body, and crop it on your own.

If they could do it right as not to alienate current efs lens owners and give the extra reach/IQ when using FF glass. I'd buy one.

I loved my 5Dc a lot. It still better than any crop camera canon makes and your can find them for as low as 450$ in decent shape. If you care more about lenses, I'd get a 5Dc with a set of lenses over just getting a 5D2.

To be honest, the 5D2, performance wise, is no better than the 5Dc. It's IQ is far superior but if you have duff glass, what's the point?

After you get a 5Dc, save up for the mk3. You can use the 5Dc and then sell it for exactly what you paid for it. The MK3 around holidays could be as low as 2499$, which is what I paid.

It's like a temp camera until you get the MK3. If you don't like the AF performance of the 5Dc, you won't like the MK2. If you don't mind it, the MK2 is an option. If your patient, the MK3 won't limit you later on.

Yep. I have no appetite to shoot Crop again but I do miss the reach sometimes.
