Yes, It will be cheaper in production, Just like the 18-55mm kit lens. And just like that 18-55mm kit lens, You won't see many people actually going and Buying this lens for they're current cameras.
I've been looking for a replacement for my 18-55 and this lens seems somewhat ideal as it fits between the 10-22 and the 70-200 if you have a crop body. I do agree with you otherwise though, I can't see many other reasons for someone to consider this lens other than mine.
This does seem silly, can't see why anyone would want this over the tamron f2.8 vc.
I imagine superior IQ would be the selling point for the f/4 IS but I cannot see that happening if Canon puts a price tag north of the Tammy
70-200 F/4 $629 (<-- an absolute bargain like the 17-40L is)
70-200 F/4 IS $1,099
70-200 F/2.8 $1,299
70-200 F/28 IS II $2,099
Extrapolating this to the 24-70, this might look like:
24-70 F/4 $1,099?
24-70 F/4 IS $1,999?
24-70 F/2.8 (II) $2,299 (<--- this one exists for sale today)
24-70 F/2.8 IS $3k+? Rare stamps? Left testicle?
Was thinking exactly the same - if the current 70-200 pricing is a measure, the f/4 IS would cost way above the Tamron. Not sure what kind of IQ would make up for the smaller aperture + the price differrence... Interesting out of a marketing point of view though, we will see what Canon marketeers have thought this time
i don´t think they have made it easyer for average joe.
to fully understand the score you have to know what they are testing.
because DXO is based on resized images and noise threshold.
it´s a normalized test.
but then why buy a 36 MP camera if you normalize to a lower resolution?
because you can resample an image?
well yes you can resample to 8MP.... but that is not why i would buy a 36MP camera.
the DXO score is only a true representation if you resample/normalize the RAW image.
don´t get me wrong i think the DXO test IS usefull in some way.. just not in the way most interpret it.QuoteNumbers don't lie
lol.. you are not that naive are you?
statistics lie all day.. it´s a matter how you test.
do you really think the D4 is only marginal better in low light? than i feel truly sorry for you.
but trust me not one experienced photographer, nikon or not, will be fooled by the numbers.
beside that... it´s a SONY sensor.
so if you want to praise a company.. praise the right one.
Are we there yet?
Would the existing 7D users sell off your current 7D's after you buy the 5D3, if the AF of 5D3 can match the 7D?
