Right! Since Canon and Nikon refuse to implement in-camera IS, and tout the "vastly superior" in-lens version, you really have to cry foul when they leave it out of any lens design, save maybe the widest of angles.
For composition purposes is it vastly superior.
And at 24mm and 28mm there is no reason for IS at all. I have no problem at all buying a non-IS lens that is below 100mm. Now I suppose I'll hear from the video people about that.
$5000 to vegas, triple it to $15000, and hope that that's enough for the 200-400 f/4 once it's released...
As a 1DsIII user, the 1Dx isn't the upgrade I was looking for. My next body will be a 5D3 or D800, so the specs of those two bodies are all that I care about. The 5D3 probably won't be released until after the 1Dx, so that's the only reason I care about when the latter hits the market.To be sure, it wasn't the camera I was looking for either. I think combining the 1D line was a huge mistake. I mean, isn't one of the main reasons they kept the camera at 18MP was to be able to shoot so quickly? Wouldn't a lot of studio photographers been a lot happier if they could have shot at half the speed but with much bigger images?
I hate it when somebody tells me "you don't need anything more than 18MP." I have heard that a lot. How do they know what I need? When working with a model, I certainly need 27MP much more than double digit frames per second. I was kind of hoping the new 1D would rival medium format. When I'm shooting sports I don't want full frame. It's an impressive camera, but I really think they only people it's perfect for would be like National Geographic photographers and certain kinds of sports on smaller fields/courts. It's just the wrong camera for me and a lot of others, as well, even though it has a lot of really sexy features.
Are was allowed to admit this? Will Canon revoke my membership?
I agree completely. I want more MP than my 5DII for studio and general photography. And the crop factor on my 7D is much appreciated when I shoot sports, or nature.
No one will be able to use the 200mm f/5.6 with a 1.4x extender on a Canon 1DX!!!
A 400 f/4 L IS and weather sealed would be a dream and an instant favorite lens for numbers of wildlife photographers if the price is correct (i bet between 2500 and 3000$)...
If one of the 300 f/4 L IS II weather sealed or the 400 f/4 L IS is due to be produced this year i'll be a buyer for sure !
I love taking pictures. I have only recently gotten a DSLR (about 3 years ago). But I have always loved taking pictures. My life is filled with frustration and boredom (work) but there is always photography.
But, obviously it's winter time here. Unfortunately I live in the southern US which means winter typically lacks beauty and just looks depressing. There is no pretty snow or ice to photograph here, everything is just dead. The maple tree in my front yard looks a bit like Charlie Brown's Christmas Tree. The grass is dead, the trees are dead, the leaves on the ground are dead and rotting. Adding to that is the unseasonable warmth this year. The high yesterday was 69F.
Now, normally I would be all for getting outside and photographing some of these dead things. I think I could manage to pull something good out of the winter death. But there is another problem with winter: the sun. It's basically completely down by the time I get off work. So there is not much time to go on a walk. In fact by the time I drive to my house it's dark. Last week I did manage to get my EOS-3 out and shoot at a beautiful local university campus (they actually have winter grass so it's green). But I only had ISO400 film and it quickly got too dark.
So, I guess I'm just sitting here at work staring at my camera bag wondering what you guys do in the winter. I haven't had a photo session in a few weeks and I'm getting a little antsy I guess.
What are some tips? What do you shoot in the winter? Do you live in a place with a pretty winter or do you have to make do?
Should I just take a long nap until spring?
