EOS Bodies / Re: Disappointed by dirt

Hope you're able to get it fixed or your money back, whichever you choose! As Neuro said, I would definitely be concerned about why it is filthy... Did it get dropped in the mud?

Lenses / Re: Cheap UV filters
« on: January 12, 2012, 12:02:41 AM »
Better question: which is sharper? My main purpose with a UV filter is not to block UV, but to protect the front element. With modern lens coatings and modern sensors, not much UV is getting through.

I've bought and used cheap UV filters, and have always ended up regretting it. They kill contrast, and are much harder to clean. I still need to get me a good polarizer, though...

EOS Bodies / Re: Is "X" the new "L"?
« on: January 10, 2012, 04:13:15 PM »
The X's weren't just used to mark something awesome though (as the "L" is). They were used because the typical naming system didn't really work because the products weren't really successors to one previous camera.

The 1Dx replaces the 1Ds III and the 1D IV. So what do you call it? Well, you come up something that sounds good (1Dx I guess) and then make up reasons for it later (like, it being a "x" breed and such).

The G1x is a replacement for the G12 but ups the price and the sensor size significantly. It's a whole new beast. I get that calling it the G13 wouldn't really be a good idea. So why the "x" on that one? Beats me. Honestly the "X" isn't as confusing as the "1" is. Why is that there? Is it the G1 series now?  :)

The new 5D will be called the Mark 3 and the 7D will be a Mark 2.

Indeed it will. A 5D - 7D merger might be called something X, but I would really just as soon we keep the two distinct lines operating.

Indeed it does not blow the G1X out of the water! The G1X blows the Fuji Camera out of the water!

1. The G1X is made by Canon. That alone counts for a whole point.

2. The G1X can change focal lengths without changing lenses.

3. The G1X has a father maximum focal length.

4. The G1X costs 2,000.00 less or so after the three lenses

So, the G1X clearly blows the fuji thing way out of the water.

The real point is that the G1X is a walk around, landscape, people, macro, everything, one size fits all camera. It doesn't need and isn't supposed to have a broad aperture. Much of what I would shoot with this camera would be with a narrower aperture anyway. One doesn't shoot landscapes at f1.4, if one can help it, usually... But, having a compact with a f1.4 would be helpful. If I had the budget, I would buy both instantly, and recommend you do if you can! Instead, I am saving up my dinero for some lighting gear, and maybe a new lens... I would really like a super super telephoto lens (600 F4!!!), but that's not coming soon... Maybe the Sigma 500 4.5? Anyway, this post is really beginning to rant, because I just got done with a really bad night of work, and I'm tired, so it's time to quit while I'm ahead!

Using those standards the G1X blows away the 1DX as well.

I'll take an X-Pro1 over the G1X anyday.

Of course a G1X blows away a 1DX! It costs way less, and you can fit it in a large pocket! I believe, though, you missed my point: they are two different cameras, with two different purposes. They both blow each other away in their own way.

Comparing the G1X and the X1 Pro is a little like comparing a Chevy S10 and A Ford F350 - two different trucks, two different purposes!

Lenses / Re: Should I purchase the 15-85mm f/3.5-5.0?
« on: January 09, 2012, 12:26:39 AM »
I use the 24-105 on my 7D as a walk around lens... I love it@ I really don't miss the wider angle of my 17-85; rather, I've found myself liking less and less the wide angle look for most most walk-around shots; my pictures seem better this way.

Perhaps they will join the elusive 3D in the rumour mills...

I love howv they keep mentioning this camera will work at f8...

Canon, are you listening?

Can you make the 1DX work at f8?

And, while you are at it, make my 7D work at f8?

EOS Bodies / Re: D4 AF vs 1d X AF

neuroanatomist, teaching people as usual. How do you have so may smites? Do people hate the truth that much?

Telling the truth gets you smitten, always, regardless of what field. In my two non-photographer day jobs, the truth regularly gets the speakers thereof smitten likewise...

But... as the guy asked above, yes, I was kidding in that post! I was referring to the still not yet present 1dX and D4.

I doubt that there will be any problems with the autofocus of either...
