EOS Bodies / Re: Ron Martinsen Blasts the 7DII in his review

Uhh, the 'conclusion'

"Ultimately I can’t recommend this camera. Canon sports shooters with a big lens investment would be better served investing in a used 1D Mark IV which will outperform this camera both in terms of image quality and performance, and everyone else should consider a D750 (or a D4s if you can afford it). Sure you’ll get less frames per second on the Nikon, but nearly all of them will be in focus and you’ll have killer image quality too!"

It's rather odd that instead of an aps-c camera (7D II), he recommends a APS-H (1D IV) and two full frame cameras (D750, D4s).  They can shoot at 1.6x reach advantage?   ::)

yeah i'm using it to edit photos directly on the phone taken with the iphone and man even the white balance editing works great which is wierd since its all jpg isnt it?
its a great app on an iphone

Hmm.  Photo editing on the phone is not exactly what I foresee enjoying, but it's not too slow on iPhone?

We are in the middle of a paradigm change in camera design, so if you want to invest in the past rather than waiting 6-12 months for the future, then go ahead. Be my guest.

It's not even going to be 6-12 months' wait for the next Sony "A9" or Samsung NX1. 

I have a cabinet full of Canon L lenses, so I will likely stay put, but if I were OP, with T2i and several consumer-level lenses only, I would not invest into Canon ecosystem currently.

Can't wait for the smaller, cheaper Samsung NX4000 with this new BSI sensor  8)

If they do release another mirrorless M body, we need to get out the "torches and pitchforks" and storm the castle if they don't use a Dual-Pixel sensor.  That tech would actually make an M attractive.

Of all these rumored cameras, the one I would actually have most use for is the M.  I bought the original M and had fun with it, but I gave it away as its IQ was not high enough.  I just hope its IQ at least matches the last generation from other companies,e.g. Sony A6000. 

Personally, I was waiting for A7R II with quiet shutter, faster frame rates, and non-lossy RAW files.  A smalish 35 mm f/2. lens like on RX1/R would have helped the cause greatly as well.

Well, 622 supports Canon's ETTL automatic flash exposure and 603 does not, so the question would entirely depend on whether you plan to use ETTL or use purely manual flash exposure, especially given the big price difference.

the reds are difficult for all cameras.
a guy from IR wrote that no camera beside some nikon is rendering them realistic.

Indeed, but I never thought my 5D III did all that great with reds anyway, but crop sensors really struggle with reds at high ISO's.  All I realistically want is a smaller-body crop camera that does "OK" up to around ISO 1600, and right there NX1 seems OK compared to 5D III, especially for pinks and yellow/brown, maybe even better.

ISO 1600 5D III left, NX1 right.

You are brave to use a manual focus lens for a wedding!

I used the Imaging Resource comparator to compare 5D III to NX1, and to my surprise NX1 was very, very close up to ISO 1600-3200, with the full frame clearly better by 6400. 

I would be absolutely thrilled if Samsung would place the new BSI sensor into a smaller body, NX4000 perhaps  :)


*IF* Sony can deliver that...and deliver a nice range of high-quality lenses to match...and deliver a full suite of accessories...

Sadly, there is exactly ONE FE mount Sony lens I would actually buy (FE 55 f/1.8 ) and exactly ZERO Sony speedlites and ZERO TTL wireless transceivers I would or even could buy.  What use is a great sensor?

So 7D II (1.6x) + 1.4x TC + 100-400 II= 896 mm.  Hmm hmm.

Will 2.0 x TC "work" in this situation, without autofocus in phase detect but perhaps intact AF in live view?
