Lenses / Re: Realistic wish lens
« on: November 04, 2011, 09:30:23 AM »
My dream lens is a 7-800mm f/1.2 IS that weighs 1/4 pound and has perfect sharpness all over and cost $20 US.  If they can make a little robot that flies to mars and drives around doing science experiments there is NO reason why my dream lens can't happen.

Sooner or later if humans don't extinct themselves first, optics will move into the field of organics and genetic engineering.  Think something like, a cloned eagle eye developed in a laboratory.  So sooner or later you'll likely get your wish, just maybe not in the form you originally had in mind.  Don't laugh, it's probably not even as far away as we might imagine, and it would probably lend itself better to a DIY project than grinding your own glass with a dremil.

Imagine being the first photographer on Mars...

But it's only super 35, which NeuroAnatomist just told me is really only ASP-C!!! A 14-60 EF-S would be a wonderful lens! Especially if they slapped some IS in there...

That 14.5-60 zoom would be a wondrous thing to use on a FF camera

Not really, since the image circle covers only Super35, approximately APS-C.  So, while it would work on your 7D, you'd get terrible vignetting on FF.  Although the new primes will work on FF, the new zooms are effectively EF-S lenses in terms of image circle.

What?!?!? They tricked me!!!! I must cancel my order now!  :D

The glories of only half reading rumors and not paying attention to what is read...

Why does the 16-35 get so dogged on? I've oft been intrigued by it, but, as I use a 7D, I'm a little hesitant about the resultant focal length.

Therefore, I covet the Tokina 11-16. Any comparisons between the two?

(Moreover, for those who hate the 16-35, just mail that miserable lens to me! I will be glad to help alleviate your suffering!  8))

That 14.5-60 zoom would be a wondrous thing to use on a FF camera (even on my 7D, twould still be glorious!). Mayhap, in many many years, when I am old and wizened, I can come accross one in a garage sale. Until then, I shall keep on dreaming!

Probably, there will be SLRs manufactured and used for the next hundred years or more. For example, the rangefinder camera is still well in use in its circle of users...

No matter how good an electric monitor may look, nothing at all beats looking at the real thing as it happens through my OVF. Long live the prism!

Any chance Canon might make a 7-14  ef-s?  ;D

May this ne'er happen to me!!! Although, I did have to have sand cleaned out of the focus ring, but that was because I dropped in on the beach TWICE in about five minutes time. There is no fail like user fail!

EOS Bodies / Re: 5Diii vs 7Dii (FF vs APS-C)
« on: November 01, 2011, 05:32:56 PM »


I agree. They do compliment each other.

I also agree about the ISO.. I'd never put the 7d above 640, yet regularly have the 5d at 1600.

Is this for RAW's or jpegs?

For sports and wildlife, I regularly use 7D ISO 500-1000. Careful noise reduction and careful sharpening can help, but frankly, mostly the images are fine without a whole lot of trouble. This is with both RAW and JPG.

Usually, I shoot RAW, bit for BIFs, sometimes JPG makes life easier... And the noise still isn't that bad!

Got my 7D soaked in a pouring storm. Did two weird things: 1. Joystick wouldn't work for a few hours. 2. The auto-exposure went completely haywire. Even with the lens cap on, it thought the pitch black should be exposed at f22 ISO 100 SS 5000. Solution? Shot manual until I got home. Final solution: hair dryer into the mouth of the lensless camera. Dried out the exposure area, God answered my prayers for it, and all was well!

Will have to see if I can find any pictures...

The 7D mk II! Maybe, at some point, I will borrow a friend's 5d II... and then, will hopefully not get hooked with even more gear greed...

Both the 7D II and the 5D III will be Uber. But, they will be for totally different purposes. And whiners will likely complain about the 7D image quality and noise levels. Whiners will also complain about the 5D one and how it isn't as good as the whatever and threaten to go to Nikon.

EOS Bodies / Re: what the 1Dx may tell us about the 5Diii
« on: October 31, 2011, 11:00:45 AM »
I'm somewhat interested in FF, for a landscape camera, but not really hugely... If I did get a 5dIII, I would be getting it for higher resolution and improved noise over my 7d. And the higher resolution part would be something I wouldn't budge on. So, a FF18mp does not interest me!

I think that the 1DX style will probable seep more into the 7D than the 5D... Probably, the 5diii will be sort-of the what the 1DIVs would have been, except without the grip. Likely, I'm guessing it will sell for a hair over 3,000...
