The mythical 14-24mm f2.8L.

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 ?

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

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 ?


31 000 Swedish kronor


4 654.805 U.S. dollars

While it seems simple to compare the pricing " injustice" by simply using an exchange rate, that is would be so far from how pricing is actually determined in different countries and markets. The USD price of the camera is based on US consumer purchasing power, the exchange rate and fair market value.

It's not fair but hey, if you think that US consumers are getting a great deal, go ahead and exchange your money, buy the camera from a US seller , and see what price you end up paying. After you do this and pay about an extra $1000 USD you'll understand the price and exchange rates don't work out that way. It's all based on relative purchasing power... Not the actual exchange rates.

For those interested in market pricing strategy

In Romania 16 000 RON means 3.680 EURO or 4.878 US$ ... so, jbwise01, just empty words

I'm fed up of reading this forum today and hearing people complaining about the 5DIII pricing. Did you ever think it was going to sell for less than $2500? The prices will be lower when it hits the high street stores when it first comes out. But most importantly,

1) Do you NEED a 5DIII?

if not, shut up.

2) Can you afford a 5DIII now?

if not, shut up.

3) Can you ever afford a 5DIII?

if not, shut up.

4) If you can afford it but are not considering buying it

shut up

5) If you want to buy a 5DIII but will wait for a year when the price drops, then why are you complaining about the prices NOW? It is irrelevant.

shut up

6) If you actually need a 5DIII and really wanted to buy it now for pro use. Well done. You fall into the 5% of population here on this forum. Your opinion and rant is valid.

Everyone else, stop jumping on the bandwagon and stop complaining.
Too many shut ups from one people  ;D
I think you are a teacher in real life (or a little dictator) and you take theese things too personal  :)

I would never really consider a 40mp 35mm sensor. Not until a second generation version at least. Image quality is king and even with my 1Ds3 I've taken landscapes that print a meter wide.

High MP = Small pixels = not good for IQ
When Canon offered 21Mp senzor the Nikon's users said the same because they had only 12Mp at that moment. And Nikon was leader in high ISO ...
Let's wait for proff reviews and comparisons   :)

The 3500US and maybe 3500 EUR here is huge in my opinion. For the moment 5D2 is great.
