Lenses / Re: Canon EF 14-24 f/2.8L [CR2]
« on: June 16, 2012, 05:57:43 AM »
I thought the nikonians had been paying about $2500 for their 14-24 anyway. I'd personally expect at least that from canon, and if its actually turns out to be better, it may well be something around $3000.

Still half exciting though.

EOS Bodies / Re: should i wait for 70D? when will it be here by?
« on: June 16, 2012, 01:06:05 AM »
You are aware this site is called canon RUMORS yes?

70D... hmmm... let me think about this for 0.1 seconds. It doesn't exist, it may actually not ever exist. Sure canon will likely bring something new to the market by christmas (but wait, that could be next year for all we know), but does one want to wait that long? I wouldn't, I'd go insane.

Im glad I jumped ship and have a 7D and not waiting on nikon's replacement for the d300s! -  Waiting?... .... Still waiting... 

Its not worth it, just get something.

One example being is if I need to switch my speed of film, I simply change my camera's settings (ISO) and not have to switch out a entire roll of film. Not to mention, on a 16GB card I can store 800 photos!!! Come on... I mean really. Your average person carried only a few rolls and they contained what? 24? 36? shots per roll?  ::) (Let's see... math... 800 divided by 24 {average shots per roll} is 33 rolls!!!) Oh, and I can swap memory cards in like 5 seconds if by chance I run out of room shooting in a morning and they can STILL fit in my front pocket. :)


Yup, totally agree with that as much as I'd defend film where I can.

I've shot well over 2400 shots in day shooting sports and stuff before (haven't done it since though). But how many rolls of film would that be? Oh, lets say at bare minimums at least $1300 worth!!!!! Not a chance in hell I could have afforded to do that.

I was taught on film, before any other options were available. But will only shoot medium format film now, and no I don't shoot much of it. Darkroom access is also getting harder to come by.

Well ok, now that there's some photo's up, yes I can see it. I think that's pretty nice though in general. I personally would not classify it as nervous bokeh, to me that bokeh is quite beautiful.

The bokeh is only one reason I think I want one, now that I've looked its also cheaper than the 35mm L canon so that's another plus. I don't know, different people, different things. That bokeh to me is nice. Plus the shots I took were also pretty razor sharp too, another even more critical area to me.

LOL. I don't care what the reason is, this is positive news to me.

I tried a 35mm f2 zeiss recently at a digital expo. I have to get one now after putting the files into lightroom to have a decent look. I don't do video but the out of focus areas are so silky smooth, even on my 1.6x crop 7D. I don't 'need' af all the time, so it would be perfect. And as mentioned above, the focus ring is amazing to use. However its the optic I care about more.

Wish the f1.4 version wasn't massively more expensive!

EOS Bodies / Re: Touch Screen in Future Full-Frames?

A Vari Angle screen?

You mean a 'break me off' screen? I think that can stay off the more pro bodies, for I know there would be breakages.

« on: May 24, 2012, 11:06:14 PM »
I don't see how there's even a faint chance in hell the 7d mark ii will be full frame. 1.3x crop... well thats a tiny bit more believable I guess, I'd say NOT.

This is about the fact that good film shots will always look better than average digital ones and vice versa, no matter how good digital capture ever becomes, and that film and digital will probably always look just a little different. Furthermore, if digital ever comes so close to being able to mimic the film look perfectly, who will care? Digital enthusiasts aren't really looking for it, and film lovers already have it. Go figure.

+1

I'll just continue using both.

If they don't deliver, I won't be threatening to leave Canon or complaining about how they don't know what they are doing, or how the 7DII is just crap compared to the Nikon. Instead, I'll just keep on using my 7D, maybe buy a second body, and wait for the next generation.


+1 to a major degree. I'll be disappointed though. I would like to add a potential 7D mkii and have 2 bodies. Other option is to buy a 1d mkiv which I see as the step up currently, or just another 7D. But after already switching to canon, It would be a push for me to go back. I just kinda like the 7D, it works for me extremely well... very extremely well.

116
If a 7d mkii appears still with weather sealing, with better iso capability and 10 frames per sec, I'm in.

However if the weather sealing gets retracted, I wouldn't buy one... I'd kill it!

Lenses / Re: Shooting people with a 16-35... Any good ?
« on: May 08, 2012, 02:53:42 PM »
The 16-35 is approximately (or is that ironically) the same kind of point of view on ff as my 10-22 on my 7d.

Used well, it's awesome as others have said. I see 35mm full frame as only fractionally wide. Very usable for people.

118
M: 70%

Av and Tv respectively with exposure compensation if necessary.
Occasionally auto iso too, if needed.

EOS Bodies / Re: 7D - buy now or hold off?
« on: May 05, 2012, 03:07:05 AM »
And if the 7d mark ii is more than a year off still? Its very possible!

I have the 10-22, a 16-35 ii and a 70-300L. I use the 10-22 by far the most. For me, its great.

I wouldn't hold off. Buy what you would love to use now. Waiting could drive you nuts.

EOS Bodies / Re: Idea for Canon?
« on: May 04, 2012, 08:28:19 AM »
The Pentax 645 is about $10k, yes. So yeah you could buy 3 for the price of a leica S2.

The base hasselblad is just over $15k (I believe in a kit), and the phase one starts at about $13k in a kit - a case with a leaf 22mp back plus 80mm leaf shutter lens (plus odds and ends). Im not sure as to how much the actual phase one backs are, but I'd suggest the base model would be about the same as the mamiya backs too.

And um... the S2 is like $28k for the body alone, no lens, no nothing but obviously the 'back' is part of the body as opposed to the blad or phase.

Thats the prices here in AU at least. I do wonder if canon or nikon for that matter will release a real MF eventually. I'd be interested, as I am in the above. Just can't afford them... until they're a tax write off.
