Lenses / Re: Zoom vs Primes?

I see you also skipped the 85L II, Is that because the 135L is so good?

Lenses / Re: Zoom vs Primes?
« on: December 11, 2012, 10:48:26 AM »
Primes have been my choice for years, but I've warmed up to zooms a little more lately. I could purchase a set of good primes for the cost of one Pro-zoom. IE: 24mm 1.8, 50mm 1.4, & 100 F/2.

For street work, Primes have always been the choice for that field. Small, Fast, & Discreet.

I've been considering a 24-70 + 70-200 2.8 Set of zooms for awhile now but its the weight that continues to put me off on those purchases.

EOS Bodies / Re: What will be the issue with the 6D
« on: December 11, 2012, 12:54:36 AM »
Surprisingly enough, not everyone has the same requirements as you; so your blanket statements declaring the absolute inferiority of the 6D are utterly worthless, and make you look silly.

I also duly note that a mod has a very low pain threshold for posts favoring Nikon :-) ...

... but when your blood pressure went through the roof you overlooked that the post was intended a bit on the striking side, a click on my profile reveals I even did a large compilation of things the 6d is good at: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=11309.0

Still, and short since this is rather ot: As an "entry level ff" the d600 has the clear edge, and I dare to say that except for low light af the other things in favor of the 6d are unlikely to matter to the targeted customer group if they aren't bound to a brand by prior investments. Peace.


Not so much a low threshold for Nikon favoring, than speaking in absolutes.  I think after all the posts (not from you, but in general) about how the 5D3 was the worst camera ever... and then once users have them in their hands 99% love them.  And now the same thing happening with the 6D, gloom and doom, total Canopocalypse... but actual users seem to like them.  You just happened to be in the blast radius when I was particularly annoyed, so sorry about that.  And just ignore the fact I'm a mod, I'm just a spam/profanity/personal attack janitor, my opinions are purely my own.

Your compilation of things that are good about the 6D is quite excellent.  It's well thought out, objective...  a very valuable post.  I would not hesitate to direct someone trying to decide on 7D/5D2/5D3 in the direction of that post.

"Clear Edge": once again absolutes (grrrr, lol)...  If low light AF is important, high ISO, EF compatibility, or even if WiFi or GPS are important... Then that clear edge may be quite a bit blurier for someone else than it is for you.


I don't think the issue was the 5D3 wasn't a fantastic camera, it just wasn't a fantastic camera @ 3499$.

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Canon EOS 5D Mark III Body for $2599 via eBay
« on: December 11, 2012, 12:50:59 AM »
My 2499$ 5D3 package just came in. It has everything as promised and is in perfect condition. (Of course no 24-105L)

Great deal but took nearly 3 weeks to arrive.  :P

Just curious, did yours come with a warranty card?

Yes, a canon USA warranty card was in the box.

PowerShot Cameras / Re: G15 or G1X for my mom???
« on: December 10, 2012, 03:54:35 PM »
Get the G15. The G1x is not small by any measure.

On another note, I was considering a G15 because of its flash sync speed. Can it sync up to 1/2000th or even 1/4000th? I couldn't find any info on this.

+1 That too.

If I were to buy one Ultra-Wide lens that I know will out-resolve any future High megapixel bodies, will survive for years to come, and Give the absolute best re-sale value.

I'd get the Zeiss 15mm 2.8.

I recently found some 5D2's for 1200$ on craigslist. I could almost squeeze 2x 5D2's for one 6D.

CF > SD

The 5D3 is a 7D w/ a full frame sensor but better.

The 6D is a Repackaged 5D2 with Wifi/GPS.

The 5D2 was a 20D with a FF Sensor.

If you love everything about your 7D, Get a 5D3.

F/4 sounds like the solution to me.
