Let me guess... the real one that hits the street will be f/4 and have no IS.
Oh, and cost $2,499.

I picked up the Dell Ultrasharp U3011, it's a 30" monitor with a res of 2560x1600. Check out the specs on Dell's site.
I have no doubt the big megapixel DSLRs are in the pipeline, but so far things are pointing to the professional market instead of the consumer market.
When you ship vast quantities by UPS, the tracking number and label are generated at the shipper's end - but go into the UPS computers from there, without UPS actually having gotten the package. When UPS does its scheduled pickup, each box is scanned into the UPS system, and from there its forwarded to its destination.
If the new upcoming 46Mp beast is costing $9,000 ... Canon is sending a clear message to all its customers ... "If you want high MegaPix with medium format like quality and can't afford to pay .... Go .. Just go away .. And go with Nikon ... Canon does not want you as a customer ... Good Bye"!!!!
Let me guess - yet another recycling of the T2i/60D/7D/T3i/T4i/ pixels, just in a larger sensor.
18*(1.6*1.6) = 46.1
The crop factor for Canon APS-C is 1.62, not 1.6.
I think we should withhold judgement until we see IQ and noise control from this 20.2 megapixel sensor. Because in the end, isn't that what really matters?
Let's say it's stellar IQ... as good as the 5D3 (it won't be better, Canon's not going to put their best in a 6D and second best in the 5D3). Then so what? It's a great sensor in a hobbled body for $2k... who's buying it?
The price gap is too large to entice an average consumer up from the Rebel line. And the features are not up to spec for working pros. There is no question that it's an entry level FF... but what are the features (other than the sensor) that make this better than a 60D? And if the only benefit over a 60D is the sensor... then how many customers are going to pay that much more for a FF sensor when the vast majority of Rebel customers don't even know the difference.
Guy walks into Best Buy to buy a Canon DSLR. Salesperson shows him a 60D for $900 and a 6D for $2000. Same body and specs but 6D is FF... what's the customer going to buy? Is the salesperson going to be able to explain the benefits of FF... many of the salespeople probably don't even know themselves.
Sure there are many folks on CR reading this right now salivating that they can get a FF camera for $2k.... but nobody on here is an average consumer... we are all camera enthusiasts reading up daily on how great FF is... so the person this is targeted for is a person that is lusting after FF, is unwilling/unable to pay $3500 for a 5D3, and doesn't need the AF and speed of a 7D. How big is that market?
ROFL this is the funniest thread i have read in a while
Your image is fine. Sharpness, vibrance, contrast, and highlights are just a matter of personal taste.
If you plan to print it, it will be fine as well.
I do a lot of event work for DU, and two Alien Bee B800s with 42" shoot-thru umbrellas do the trick every time...
justsomedude, would you mind sharing a link of an example of the umbrellas you mention?
