My dog had just stolen this Red-tailed Hawk's lunch - a dead squirrel it left on the ground




Funny story and great capture!

Lesson learned: If you buy Canon, or any product for that matter, check it thoroughly and use it as much as you can immediately after purchase. If there’s something wrong, return it. Getting satisfaction from repairs is a futile effort.

i have to disagree... completely.

canons repair service is the best service i ever had the pleasure to work with here in europe.

when your local service is that bad i agree that writing a letter to canon directly is maybe the best way to deal with it.

I also think you should use/test your new gear immediately and extensively.  If it's not up to par, return it to the retailer you bought it from for a refund or exchange.

Call me skeptical, but Canon is notorious for crippling their cameras to keep them from cannibalizing sales of the high end.  I will be shocked if it's better spec'd than the 1D X, which it sounds like it will be in all ways other than the FF sensor.  Unless it costs more than the 5D III, that is.

agree.

All this makes me salivate for a 7D2, and also a large MP FF that I can get more reach with...

I think it would be a courteous thing to remove images from replies, in the image galleries. It causes unnecessary repetition and wastes screen real estate. Can this be enforced in some way? Does anyone see any advantage to this?

Jrista...thanks for taking the time to do this comparison, it's informative and helpful!

Could you post the two photos without upsampling the 5d3 image.  I'd like to see the 5d3 image cropped to match the 7d without the upsampling process.

Thanks again,
North

Oak leaf silhouette against the sun...

The sun was covered by clouds just enough to allow me to photograph/view it with the naked eye.

Unedited other than small amount of contrast and cropping

An Oak leaf's view of sunrise

Beautiful view of the sunrise over the lake...roughly 20 minuets after sunrise.  The cloud cover was just thick enough to allow me to view and photograph the sun comfortably.

Unedited straight out of camera jpeg....with a 1/4 stop exposure bump and a little cropping.

thanks

I am amazed how many poor images are posted on this thread . ( especially by those who consider themselves experts in their opinion !)

Just noticed this one, very amusing.

Of course Dave you do know that Opinions are a little like arseholes, everybody has one.

Yes...agreed.
