If they could make the same 135mm f2 with IS, I would be more than satisfied, I'm afraid the extra 1/3 of stop of a 1.8 version would only add weight, bulk, a larger filter size and 3 times the price. The new 135mm f2 IS when it comes will likely sell for 1899$ anyway.

Zeiss already make's a 135 F/1.8. It should be no big deal for canon.  :P

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.

You haven't provided a single sample for comparison. Nor could you provide one on request here, even though you claim to have handled both.

Your statement claims the opposite of published, professional test data and sample images (DPReview; Imaging Resource). Therefore the burden of proof is entirely on you.

But go ahead and rant in 36 point again like a spoiled child throwing a temper tantrum.

Your plainly mistaken Mr. Taylor. I was a Avid 5Dc + 7D combo user.




Since I don't shoot test charts and my experience is real world, If you don't get what not only myself have been saying but other 5Dc users have also agreed on. There is no helping you.

Please, I would love to see some of your ISO 3200 Shots from the 7D, Because I already know what they're going to look like.

So i´m in the market for a full frame camera right now. I only have FF lenses for EF mount, so switching would at least mean the loss of a lens or two (money reasons).
Right now canon is far behind others. Or lets just say it: Nikon.

The d800 is 2300€ the 5d3 is 2900€ and the Nikon just is the superior camera. If you downsize the image even high iso is awesome, af is good etc. It´s just a really good body and much more in the price range of a 6d.

I want to stick with canon but if they are going to make their first competitive body in like 5 years i really have to consider switching....

Canon's sensor tech is behind sony/nikon but its not as bad as some make it to be.

What really set's canon apart is the EF lens selection. Its simply the best, excluding the ultra-wide department. The d800 is a great camera but, overall the 5D3 is a better package.

I scored a MK3 for 2499$! What does that say about canon camera prices dropping?

Be patient and you won't have early adopters regret.

Lenses / Re: Trying to justify purchasing a 200mm f2.0
« on: November 29, 2012, 12:14:47 AM »
If you do a lot of portraits the 200 f/2 is unbeatable and you get roughly a 300mm 2.8 and a 400mm f/4 with TC's.

I've been seriously considering the 200 f/2 for a long while because of the magic in my 135L. The 200L would just be even more awesome.

"As for hybrid IS, Its really only useful at 1:1 or near 1:1 focusing distances. Perfect for macro lenses"

Thank you for educating me on that feature.

That is a very poorly worded comment.

What it should have said is,

"Hybrid is every bit as useful as conventional IS in a myriad of circumstances, possibly even slightly better,  but additionally it is useful at 1:1 or near 1:1 focusing distances, where conventional IS loses about half to 3/4 of its effectiveness".

That's better.

I love quotes taken out of context.  ::)

On my 5D3, The joystick moves the AF point around directly with no hassles. I love multi-selectors.

I don't believe any amount of Dynamic Range could help in that particular situation.  ;D

I purchased one for 2499$ and I've also purchased a 24-105L from them as well.The 24-105L was perfect, no issues.

Even If i were to stab my 5D3 sensor with a screw driver and send it in to be repaired, It'd still be cheaper than buying a 5D3 retail at that insane 2499$ price tag.

Just my 2 cents.

Um, yes this is a great lens. Been out a couple years now. Why a review now? And if it has Hybrid IS, why doesn't Canon use Hybrid IS on all their IS lenses?

Why not review now? Lenses last years or decades in the marketplace.

As for hybrid IS, Its really only useful at 1:1 or near 1:1 focusing distances. Perfect for macro lenses.

Lenses / Re: Believe it or not, 5D3 user misses the 300D reach...

I sold my 7D recently and I miss the reach sometimes. I was contemplating a 200mm F/2 sometime in the near future with a set of extenders.

I'll wait until the 7D2 is released before I consider another crop camera.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Technical novice upgrading to EOS 5D?
« on: November 27, 2012, 11:21:00 AM »
I am thinking of upgrading from an Eos 30D to an Eos 5D MkII. Basically I am a hobby photographer who'd like to do stills along with video at a much higher image quality. My style is not so much about perfect detail and technical images - I don't mind a little dithering from noise and blur. My problem with the 30D is its focus reliability, along with low resolution and no ability for video.

2 things I'd like to know are -

Do my needs justify a 5D over a 7D?

Will my lenses now be useless?

-Canon Zoom Lens - 17 mm - 85 mm - F/4.0-5.6 - Canon EF-S
-Canon Lens - 50 mm - F/1.8 - Canon EF

Here's some of my photos for ref:

Many thanks :)

I would probably get the 7D over the mk2. It's got everything but the IQ of a FF sensor.

If you do plan on going FF, Skip the 5D2 series camera and get a MK3. It will save you alot of headaches.
