EOS Bodies / Re: 7D Mark II for Photokina? [CR1]
« on: December 29, 2011, 02:24:23 PM »
What many commenting here don't seem to get is the two main draws of the 7D:

1. 1.6x crop sensor. This is a huge reason of why I wanted it over the 5D. I need the reach. A 800 5.6 is simply out of my reach financially. And, it;s pretty unwieldy to boot.

2. 18 mp. This is hugely important for bird and wildlife photography. Fewer pixels would mean less to work with, and more problems when working with it.

If Canon lowers the MP of the 7D mk II, I will not get one.

If they make it ASP-H, I will smite Canon!

I shot this with a 7D and a 400 f2.8 at 200 ISO and a shutter speed of around 400. I defy any one to describe the bokeh as messy or bad in any way. It was even drizzly out. The FF may provide more separation and a little more blur, but I don't think the quality is really much different.

Love the picture!!!

Mp, not jesting... loss of wide... EF-S doesn't work on ASP-H... Canon's widest for ASP-H is 14mm... the 10-22 beats this out... The point is not improved image quality, it is Vastly improved image quality...

EOS Bodies / Re: Is it worth picking up the 1D-X?
« on: December 24, 2011, 09:04:44 AM »
Of course it's worth picking one up!

But what for?

Why would you use it?

What could it do for you the 7D and hot glass could not?

If so, get it and love it! Treat it well, and feed it gloriously.

If not, there are many other cameras in the sea...

Shallow depth of field can at times be problematic, though... Ever taken that epic picture, only to pind the bird's eyes in focus, but the tip of his bill awkwardly oof? Sure, you can stop down the FF camera, but then you end up losing the low light advantage. Are FF cameras reallt all that much better than ASP-C? Especially ASP-H... How much better is it really? For the loss of BOTH wide angle AND tele range, there must needs ne much improved image quality. And I am not convinced there is.

I for one would not want an APS-H sensor in a 7D II or 6D.  I use the 7D for sports and wildlife and welcome the 1.6x crop factor.  I use the 5D II for everything else.  I really do not see the need for 1.3x crop.  I'd say put in the 45 point AF into the 7DII and keep it a 1.6x and give it 10 FPS.  That would suite me just fine.

Indeed.

True at times, but then there are wedding photographers hired expresssly for their look...

Pay $2995 for a 1d4 aps-h sensor in a 7d body?

No, I wouldn't. But, I would pay $4299 for an APS-C sensor in a 1D X body (with some noise improvements, 1D X-like AF but with an f/8 center point, 1D X metering and ergonomics).

Anyone else?

Neuro, I can't dispute that if an APS-C were released with 1d/5d level performance, there would certainly be interest in it. But right now that is a hypothetical sensor that would require new R&D and lead time. The 1d4 sensor is real and ready to go...and until the 1dx is released, is still Canon's best for events, sports and movies

If Nikon were to recycle their 12mp d3s sensor into the 700s with movie functionality in 2012, Canon would have their hands full.

I'm not certain why... The benefits of the D3s are more than just sensor...

I would try to.... might have to wait for a while until it got a bit cheaper, but I would be hugely interested in it...

Indeed... Depends on whether the goal is a more literal representation or a more artistic rendering...

An ASP-C 1D4 would be great....

But an ASP-H 7D would be... unthinkable... unconscionable... unacceptable.
