Loyalty to Canon comes not only from their products but also from their customer/technical support. Sony's customer support is known to be bad and one doesn't want to wait 1-2 months for their DSLRs/mirrorless cameras to be fixed.

I'd personally wait for Canon's response to this announcement. Will see what their anticipated high MP camera is going to bring, and it seems it'll be released faster than we thought. Apparently the regular 3-4 year cycles for DSLR releases will be gone soon.

I know people buy/sell on fredmiranda.com. although I've never done that.

So, just to clarify for myself. Are these cameras fully compatible with any EF lenses, Zeiss T lenses and have in-body image stabilization? Wondering how AF would work on these bodies with Canon lenses. I guess until recently a lot of third party lenses had issues with AF on Canon/Nikon bodies.


i'll be honest..
I too am going to get the A7R. Simply because it is what i have been waiting for in a long time.
I'm a Canon fan and i have tons of Canon glass and accessories etc..
But i always thought the weight of the 5D3 was a little too much for me and since i'm not a professional, i don't "need" a professional camera do i.
I have since also made the decision to switch to Sony. I love my 5D3 and all my L glass but somehow the A7R with good zeiss glass…i couldn't see a reason why i needed to keep my canon gear.
I am in fact going to sell away everything and move to Sony by next year once the zeiss 24-70 is launched
Noting against Canon, but i think they are indeed lacking behind in the mirrorless market. I have the M, it's a joke..and with nothing new anytime soon, i can't wait…
You go Boy! LOL!
I am going to be a little patient..but I am definitely headed toward the same boat. How can you not, unless you are a pro who specifically needs certain parts of a pro system.  I think when the next Sony body is released and there are many more lenses available is when I will jump.  I am skipping eBay too, with their ridiculous percentages...do you know of any forums to sell gear on and just use paypal??????

I'd buy it if I had money  :) I'm sure there going to be lot of people who can afford paying 4k for a lens. And for some of you guys who keep criticizing Zeiss for making manual focus lenses for Canon... I think the issue is not with Zeiss, but with Canon not willing to allow the Zeiss to make AF lenses for Canon bodies  :-\

I think when you consider purchasing a lens, you think about not only image quality but also how reliable it is in terms of build quality. I've never owned any Sigma lenses, so I don't know, but maybe others can comment on how good Sigma's technical support and repair centers are?

Technical Support / Re: Going medium format for studio work?
« on: May 28, 2013, 04:03:13 PM »
I've never owned any medium format cameras although I'd love to some day, so maybe my comment is a little naive. I thought whether it's better for you to get something like Mamiya 645 and a digital back? I know it isn't a true medium format but in this case you will be able to shoot digital and film (if you wish). And in addition, you aren't stuck with the same camera, as you can sell the digital back once it becomes outdated and get a new advanced one. Or get a Pentax 645D, again not a true medium format but much more affordable. Especially if you aren't planning to print huge photographs.

Amazon is really good. You can have 30-day return policy, even if a seller says something different. And if you have the Amazon store card and don't have the right amount of money at the moment, you can pay for your stuff for 6-24 months.

I shot 14-24 on D800 through a friend, all I can say is WOW.

My vote is 14-24. I wish Canon can match or do better than current Nikon 14-24.

There are already lenses for Canon bodies whose optical quality surpasses that of Nikon's 14-24.

Can you pin point Canon UWA Zoom lenses that equal or out perform Nikon 14-24?  I'm still looking for one :-\

Dylan, please read my post above. Probably I didn't state this clear enough when I said there are better UWA lenses than Nikon 14-24. The point is that i) I meant both fixed and zoom lenses, and ii) a guy already invested in Canon, so why not to get the best UWA lens from Canon (17mm TSE) or Zeiss (15 or 21mm) instead of investing into Nikon. Nikon 14-24 is still going to be manual, you need to buy an adapter, loose an F-stop, can't get a filter for it; it's subject to flare and some CA. In your case, if you really need to have an UWA zoom lens, then I agree with you, Nikon 14-24 is probably your best choice. But it's a very special lens, and I personally wouldn't buy it unless I used Nikon body. I hope it clarifies what I meant initially. For OP, Nikon 14-24 would be a better choice. Have a good rest of the weekend  :)

Read the OP.  You cannot mount a Canon lens to a Nikon Body!! 
 
You should also tell us which superior  14-24 lens is made for Canon bodies that is better so we can avail of your wisdom.

You don't have to be sarcastic here, you're missing the point and sound really bad (seriously). If you've read more carefully what I said, you'd understand that my response was not to the OP, but to the statement that Canon hasn't released a lens which would match or exceed Nikon's 14-24 in terms of its IQ. In my opinion, IQ of Canon's TSE17 and Zeiss ZE 15/2.8 and 21/2.8 is overall better than Nikon's 14-24. A guy already has 5diii, why not to invest money in the lens which can be used on Canon's body instead of investing into Nikon with a great but still a zoom lens?

Lenses / Re: Canon 85L II AF speed on 5D III???

I love my 85mm f/1.2 L but if you want quick AF the non-L 85mm f/1.8 is just as good.

Thanks for your input. No, I'm not into action photography, so my primary interests are portraits with great subject separation and bokeh. From what I've read so far, it seems that version i is very similar to ii, except it's slower in focus and also more prone to flare.

^Ok, Lets simplify.

Would you rather pay adobe 600$ and keep the software or not? The prices are about the same.

If I have the money, need the sw and have the option to own it, I would pay the whole sum and keep the sw. Who doesn't? But in any other case renting doesn't seem so bad as people are trying to pretend here.

Who doesn't? Adobe doesn't want you to own those retail CD's. It's less money in their pockets because you, the consumer, will decide if the next upgrade is worth buying. You own the copies, you have the power to decide if and when you will invest more into adobe.

In turn, Adobe has to provide good solid updates to each version to get your cash. It's incentive for them to try harder. A subscription model will dull that edge and adobe will have less incentive to do so.

I think a Subscription model alongside side a perpetual license is a good thing. People will little cash can subscribe and heavy users can get the retail copies they need. If enough users petition adobe (which I have), I believe they'll let both co-exist.

My guess is that if Adobe lowered the cost of the monthly fees, a lot more people would be happy to switch to CC. It's the price which makes many people frustrated about Adobe.

Guys, I didn't want to start a new thread but does anyone know how much slower the 85 1.2 i version as compared to version ii?

Much slower, on pre 2012 bodies the 85 1.2 MkI is really AF in name only.

That bad? :( Ok thank you for your response.
