EOS Bodies / Interview hints to future new Canon mount type
« on: September 21, 2014, 12:17:37 PM »

Maybe a new future mirrorless system that tries to find a good balance between size and iq. Quite interesting rumor. If Canon would release a new mount system, they would probably not maintain all those they have now (likely EF-M).

Looks awesome, but I have not been able to find any sample images ...

There is one on the Canon product page:

Difficult to judge the performance based on that image.

And here a hands-on from DP-Review:

On the battery: "The 7D Mark II uses a new battery, the LP-E6N, that has a higher capacity than the previous LP-E6 batteries found in the 5D Mark III and its predecessor. Importantly, though, the form factor remains the same, which means you should still be able to use the older LP-E6 batteries in it."

Is this true? Would be very nice for 5D3 owners.

The price is equal to a 300 2.8L II + 1.4x. That combo is more versatile and offers excellent IQ. I hope to see some reviews of the new DO vs the 300+1.4x combo.

Although the specs may not appeal to all of us, I think the price point is not bad. This may become a nice 2nd body to my 5D3; the button lay-out appears to be identical, so 5D3 shooters can rely on their muscle memory.

The lens is about the weight and size of the 300 2.8 II, which is recognized as one of the very best (Canon) lenses that combines really well with TC's. Unless it is significantly cheaper than the 300 (which is highly unlikely), my guess is that many people would choose the 300 (+1.4x) combo over this lens.

Like most of you, I am interested to read the first reviews of this lens to how good the IQ is.

CR seems to lag behind the other rumors sites these days when bringing this type of news.  :(

I live in the The Netherlands, in the city of Utrecht.

Thanks All for the suggestions. I agree it needed some warming. As pointed out by sagittariansrock, it was not easy to find the right balance between the right color temp for the skin tones and the flowers.

In the below edit, I increased the color temp from ~7700K to ~12000K and reduced the saturation of the red, yellow and orange by ~20. Do you think this is better?

I feel they lack a bit of a punch. If anyone of you is better at raw processing then me, feel free to have a go at the raws (IMG_6376.CR2 / IMG_6381.CR2), I would very much appreciate if you could send the the resulting xmp files.

The market for a 400 f/4 would be very small if it would not be considerably cheaper than the 300 f/2.8 II, taking into account how well the 300 takes TC's.

Maybe  this whole rumor is just a  distractive move and Photokina will bring some higher anticipated products... I hope so  ???

On the other hand, if these will be the announcements, my wallet will be happy  ::)
