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!

Buy now and pay later! ;D And love the images you would have been missing otherwise! :P

EOS Bodies / Re: 5Diii vs 7Dii (FF vs APS-C)

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...

United States / Canon Mirrorless... Could we see lower f-stop lenses?
« on: October 28, 2011, 02:52:55 PM »
Suppose canon went and made a mirrorless sort of camera, perhaps with a 2xish crop like most of them out there. Could we see lower f-stop lenses more widely available, especially zooms? My old c-mount 22.5-90 f1.5 as an example: could they not with the better tech of today make a similar zoom for the larger 2xish crop sensor? 16-120 f1.8, maybe? 50-200 f2?

As I am thinking about it,  a 135 f2L on a crop camera would be a wild lens!

I have an old 22.5-90 f1.5 Bell and Howell, c-mount probably.  I'd like to see an ef-s 22.5-90 f1.5! Surely it would only cost a few thousand, right? But, what a lens for weddings and events!

Seems like overkill on APS-C to end up with a slow ~40mm lens.

My thoughts exactly. Sigma 30 1.4 - 1 stop faster, close in focal length. And has autofocus! is it as sharp? Assuredly not, but also whale loads cheaper (and more useable).

Maybe this is more appealing to the video crowd (I'm sure its focus should be pretty well-damped, and easier than most autofocus lenses)...

EDIT: Spelling and computation errors!

Alas, am not interested... is this more for full-frame users?

For me, 20-135 f4 L IS. Just a might wider, and a mudge longer than my 24-105... f2.8 would be nice, though not throughly necessary. I wouldnay mind the weight or size (I'm big...). Though I would be satisfied with f4...

Also, Canon 100-300 f4. Sigma once made one, and it was wonderful! Maybe make that 70-300 f4... make it EF-S and we'll call it a day!

And, I'll second that 11 f2 ,,, (maybe I just shutmeself up and go pony up for the tokina 11-16 2.8...)

And, a 50-150 f2 IS...

Lenses / Re: The price 300mm 2.8 IS--is just greed--maybe?

Ahhh... the 70-300... my favourite lens before I got my 300 F4 (which was my favourite before I got my 300 2.8)! There are always a lot of 7X-300s for sale on ebay, so it would seem a lot of them have sold over the years...

I like megapixels. The more the merrier! But, I have reasons for liking them... Usually, my subject of choice, birds in flight, don't fill the frame, and often don't even come close to filling it...

The more the merrier! And hand me that stack of hard drives...
