EOS Bodies / Re: Best Lenses for the Canon 5Ds

But but ... there aren't any lenses, especially by Canon, that will resolve a 50MP sensor!!!!  ::)

I had an interesting discussion in a spanish forum on this. Can someone provide some evidence on that?

On my side I would assume that this new FF 50Mpx should put the same kind of "strain" on a lens than the 7DII, because of nearly identical pixel size, and I do get tack sharp pics on a 7DII (with some very high quality lenses)...it does not seem to me limited at all.

Interesting ranking.

I'm surprised the 300 2.8 IS version I is ranked sharper than version II in a crop sensor..also that 500 F4 II is so low in the table. In addition, shouldn't the sharpest in FF maintain ranking order in crop?

Finally, having both the Zeiss 100 / 50MPs, to my untrained eye they seem both identical either in FF / crop, very very very close, unlike in DxOs ranking.

Hi

In printing, no need to do Canon, in fact some other printer manufacturers have more reputation in that domain. I have the Epson R3000 which prints beautifully and can only recommend it. Even more, it's wifi and prints to A3+ and rolls if you need to.

Resolution is really really good, size is very acceptable, has 7 colors and 2 blacks. Check its reviews online. On top of it I think the prices is very reasonabel as well.

Both cards are genuine and we have registered them under your name for warranty purposes.

How do you register a card for warranty purposes?  I have never done that

I've asked them the same question, hoping to get a link to check that out too.

Thanks to all for the comments.

Got the Sandisk replay (kudos for the reactivity) and this is what they say. I copy so it may help others:

Thank you for contacting SanDisk Technical Support. My name is XXXXXX and I am here to assist you.

I understand you would like to verify the authenticity of your new SanDisk 32GB CF Extreme Pro 160Mb/s memory card.
 
We are glad to confirm that both cards are genuine SanDisk products.  The reason you observe the difference on the one with the black label and gold lettering is because we have very recently changed the labels on the Extreme Pro line.
 
Both cards are genuine and we have registered them under your name for warranty purposes.
 
For future reference please bear in mind that the best way to ensure you are purchasing an authentic SanDisk product is to buy from an authorized SanDisk reseller.  You may view our distributor/reseller list to locate an authorized SanDisk reseller in your area:  Find a Retailer/Distributor

Hi

Bought 2 CF Sandisk 32GB Extreme Pro (160Mb/s, UDMA 7) from Amazon (Spain).

Both packages look like the one in the second picture which is the same you can see pretty much everywhere.

However, after opening, one of the memories does not have the golden band on the top and bears a different look (first picture)...did I get a fake mem from Amazon or is this somehow the new look of the Extreme Pro's?

Left Memory No.1 which is the on expected and matches the package
Right Memory No.2: the weird one

Fyi i've contacted Sandisk and expect their reply.

thx for your feedback!

Hi Fegari.
Are you sure you want to go to 2.0.5, I thought there was some talk that it only fixed a very obscure issue and could nobble the use of 3rd party batteries.

Cheers Graham.

Thanks,

I have doubts because of this I found in the Canon support pages:

"Firmware Version 2.05 is for cameras with Firmware Version 2.0.3"

Sure then no risks going fro, 1.2.5 striaght to 2.0.5?

Did not know that. Can anyone comment? what does 2.0.5 really bring as improvements?

You better use that camera quick! I hear it's at the end of it's life cycle. ;)

With only 4k shots I don't think so  .=)

Hi

Got a second hand 7D with the old 1.2.5 firmware.

Can anyone advice if I can go directly to 2.0.3, then to 2.0.5?

Or do I have to upgrade to 2.0.0, then 2.0.3 then 2.0.5?

thx
