I feel great about the 6D! It snagged me a new 5D3 for 2500$  8)

Just purchased it. Great price and needed a 2nd body.

Im very glad that I never pay full price for my 5D's. I feel bad about the early adopters.

100mm macro L or non-L will be fine.

their target is to record in 4K not timelapse it.
they offer cinema 4K as well at only 12 fps.
its a microsd card limit.

Lenses / Re: What will determine if I buy the 35mm f/2 & the 24-70mm IS f4
« on: November 20, 2012, 06:29:52 PM »
With the same money of the 24-70 F4L, I could buy a Used 24-105L and 100mm Macro L.

That says enough about my thoughts on that lens.

Then you'd have to also buy a 50mm 1.4, 24mm 1.4 35mm 1.4. and 85mm 1.8, if the quality is good enough.

Hmmm, I don't connect how wide aperture lenses have to do with a over-priced zoom.  ???

Show me some of your ISO 3200 Shots from both cameras. I've owned both before and the 5Dc has better ISO performance.

No. You show hard evidence that the reproducible tests available at sites like DPReview and IR are wrong. I'm not the one waving my hand at and dismissing hard data. You are. Back it up or shut up.

And it better be perfect...and reproducible...right down to the last parameter. Not different subjects, lighting, and exposure, shot on the fly at different times and places, then compared, probably at the wrong magnification (i.e. 100% for both meaning the 7D file is inspected more closely), which is typical of people making claims that go against reality.

And don't reply with 36 point type like some child.

I made a statement, You said I'm wrong. The burden of proof is on you.

I've provided many, many samples of the 5Dc's superb IQ. You have provided none.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D MARK III with 50 mm f/1.2 performence

The Zeiss is the sharpest 50mm made but its only F/2 and the bokeh isn't as nice as the 50L.
The Zeiss looks great in The Digital Picture comparison.  However, the "sharpest 50mm made" appears to be the current Leica 50mm f/1.4.  That lens seems to outperform the best from Canon, Nikon, Sigma and Zeiss — though it costs a bundle and won't work on any DSLR.  :(  See the charts in the "Overall Comparison" section of the LensRentals "50mm Shootout" here:
http://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2012/01/the-great-50mm-shootout
And Leica may have surpassed even their own sharpest 50 with their new 50/2 ($7,200), not tested in the LensRentals shootout.

Well I assumed that most here would understand in the context of Canon EOS lenses. Afterall the OP didn't ask about leica equipment.  ;)

EOS Bodies / Re: 7D vs 5D2???
« on: November 20, 2012, 03:37:48 PM »
The 5D2 for wildlife is fine as long as it isn't birding but you will miss the extra reach. The 7D is a much better choice but I feel like its a bad time to buy a 7D. The 7D2 feels like its right around the corner and you could always make due with the t2i.

Sorry if I don't shoot shoot test chart but in real world use the 5Dc is better than the 7D.

No it's not. We're not discussing opinion here. Noise levels are objective, testable reality. The 7D tests lower across the board (chroma, black, grey). This doesn't magically change with a "real world" scene.

The chroma noise difference in particular is human observable in print where the 7D clearly looks better.

Show me some of your ISO 3200 Shots from both cameras. I've owned both before and the 5Dc has better ISO performance.

As has been beaten to death, the 50L is Canon's sharpest 50mm lens from f/1.2 to f/2.  Narrower it is not.  The 50 f/1.4 actually gets sharper from about f/2.8 and narrower. 

However, sharpness is not everything.  If you are going to be shooting a lot wider than f/2.8, then by all means get it.  I don't think it is worth the price, but then again, if you are the consumer you know the price going into it.

some people are mentioning the Zeiss 50mm f/2.0 Makro-Planar ZE Macro as a replacement for the 50mm 1.2 or the sigma 1.4, any feedbak please?

The Zeiss is the sharpest 50mm made but its only F/2 and the bokeh isn't as nice as the 50L.

Meh. If there is any tiny difference, it will be irrelevant in real world use.

Sure, though we'll only know for sure by looking at studio shots after a 6d raw converter is out. And concerning the dpreview shots: Actually I looked again and the focus on the 5d3/6d shots is a little different, so even @f11 that explains some differences.

On another note, I recently found out why the 6D was designed without a multi-selector.

Here's a hint, The 5Dc and The 5D2 really didn't need one either.  ::)
