EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Sorry 5D3, Insufficient Value
« on: April 21, 2012, 04:35:13 PM »
I believe a 1D4 is better value for money than a 5DIII - especially if you can get a use one.

Different type of camera but if you want a sports camera with top IQ then it is still the current top of the pile
The 1D4 is not even FF.

So what? The image that comes from it is top rate. 10 fps, top AF, metering at the AF point, AF for f/8 lens, good high ISO images plus all those nice series 1 functions (like manual settings plus exposure control). 5DIII doesn't come near it for sports/birds/wildlife.
Agreed

First and foremost, I don't know the exact value of the company, but I know it's easily a multimillion to billion dollar company, and one less person buying their cameras- they won't miss that money, there are hundreds more out there who are interested in them.
I think this is not valid ...you must tell this to Nokia, Kodak, Philips TV etc. We will see Apple's destiny, history was always cyclic, now Apple is on the wave, tomorrow it will be like Nokia maybe, who knows. Any company (big like Canon or not so big like Nikon) must listen to any customer. And I really don't think in this moment (and after the first wave) there are people standing in line to buy 5D3.
I'm sure most of those who upgraded from the original 5D or from crop are really pleased. But those who upgraded from 5D2... I think they are not fully satisfied.

EOS Bodies / Re: Huge flaw found in Nikon D800 and Canon 5D Mark III
« on: March 15, 2012, 04:39:07 AM »
There's a huge flaw found in both Canon and Nikon's latest cameras that could affect your pictures.  After some testing it seems both cameras suffer from a low SPD rate (Shots Per Day).  Apparently it only seems to affect the SPD rate in the first few months then as the camera gets use to being used the SPD increases.

The cause at this moment is the result of people spending too much time pixel peeping and comparing systems.

Get out and take some pictures :)

Indeed, it is no longer passion for photography or even a hobby, it is a passion for electronics. We all need a break for taking nice pictures  :)

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mk III vs D800/E, is the 5D3 better at anything?

- 5D Mk III vs D800/E, is the 5D3 better at anything?


In general the D800 looks more mature/better product as I could count more benefits:

* magnesium alloy body

5D3 is really made from plastic ?

EOS Bodies / Re: Hugely Disappointed In 5D III Price
« on: March 13, 2012, 07:31:25 AM »
Here, pre-order price already dropped to 3300 euros (from 3,680 euros). At this rate, in two weeks will cost the same as  D800  :P

Did you read this http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/dslr/d800/compatibility02.htm ? and In particular note 5 ...
So, let's wait for professional reviews and comparisons before judge

None of the above options justify the price for me.
My opinion is they would have to improve that function poorly in 5D2 with things already used in series 1 (Dsmk3 or Dmk4, not the DX) and maintaining an affordable price for a full frame version. For a more expensive version (over2500US$), only if the market demands, would have to release 3D or something like. For Canon top tech we have 1 series already.

EOS Bodies / Re: Hugely Disappointed In 5D III Price
« on: March 02, 2012, 01:05:39 PM »
Although I can't justify paying the money myself at this point in time, I do feel the price is totally fair. You get what you pay for and let's face it, this isn't a Rebel or a Powershot... This is is a pretty pro piece of kit and any professional photographer will recoup the cost for a 5DIII in a couple of months or so (I'm thinking wedding pros here). In which other industry is that possible? I work in the publishing and printing business and when printers have to upgrade their presses it will take a couple of years before they recoup costs, often longer. I also have a friend who runs his own chauffeur driving business. He will only buy Mercedes S-Class cars because that's what the clients expect, but it will take him over a year to recoup on his investment with a new vehicle.
So pro photographers would not have any issues with paying $3500, it's those of us that don't earn big bucks with our photography (myself included) that will be upset about the high price. I mean how many of us here drive a new S-class Mercedes?... So by all means bring on the smiting, but I think Canon could have priced it at $4000 and it would still sell by the truck load.
I think you don't want to understand ... 3500 maybe 4000 US$ for 5d3 is ok but you could pay 5000 ?

Yeah I'm kinda fed up with people complaining about prices too, but I'm not going to tell them to shut up.  I've spent the last month trying to tell people that $3500 was accurate and what I noticed was, people didn't really use reason.  It boiled down to this:
1) Anyone that couldn't/wouldn't pay $3500 didn't want it to be $3500
2) Anyone that could/would pay $3500 didn't care

It sucks when you really want something and it's released and not in your price range, but come on it's not like no one saw this coming!  The price has been up for a month, and it's interesting that people welcomed and accepted every single spec except the price.  "Oh well the rest of the list looks good but the guy must have misheard/misread the price."  or "that's gotta be the kit price"--- even though that would put the body within a couple hundred bucks of the 5DII, which would be foolish.  I even saw someone suggest $3500 was the price with the 24-70 II, which seriously made me laugh so hard I was almost crying.
Agree 100%. But what you say about almost 5k US$ for 5D3 ?
