Where would they possibly have room for a whole other camera system, especially one that might abandon the EF mount, or would be a major departure from their normal path? I can see a 40mp EF camera, no doubt...but not a whole new system.
what is the problem?
you think they can not expand the production capacity?
companys do that all the time.
if you mean room in the lineup.
well there is room for medium format.
there is enough room at the top.
that canon plays safe in the DSLR biz does not mean they can´t experiment in other areas.
the cinema systems shows that.
i would love to see a MF system from canon.. thought i don´t have much hope they will do it.
The current version is 14 years old and could benefit from Canon's new optical formulas, having used a couple of copies for various shoots, wide-open sharpness definitely has room for improvement especially in the corners.
Wide open corner sharpess on wide angle lens, LOL.
Please show me an example photo where the entire wide angle fov is OOF except the perspective distorted corner is in focus, I'm curious to see it.
Weather sealing, purple/green halo, yes.
Wide open corner? Not really. Take a look at the pathetic corner sharpess of 24L II wide open.
If you are expecting that, you are using it wrong.
There isn't much room for improvement on the current version of this lens. Although Canon has been coming out with some lenses lately that are close optical perfection. I would be interested in trying this new lens out!
APS-H. Why? I really see no point in it anymore. It served a purpose when FF was wildly expensive and APS-C wasn't up to the IQ. It had an added advantage of faster frame rates and a higher useable ISO, great for low light level sports shooting. Now, with improvements in IQ in other sensor formats, the reason no longer exists for the format to hang around. It really is a no mans land for formats.
Well let's see, I currently own a 450D and a gripped 7D and I've even got a few shots over in the gallery section of this forum with a 1DIV.
I'll more than likely pick up a 5DIII early next month so I guess the answer to your question would be yes, I've used more than a rebel. Having said that, I still enjoy using my rebel when I want a lightweight kit, which is why I didn't sell it when I bought the 7D last year.
Believe it or not, some people actually like the smaller form factor and yes the cheaper price of the rebel bodies and since you're so experienced, you know the IQ is pretty much identical between the 2 ranges.
And yes I think you were trying to be a dick..lol!! Unfortunately, that's not something that phases me.[/q][/q]
- the 70D is coming because the T4i now has virtually the same specs as the 60D, no reason whatsoever to buy a 60D anymore and Canon knows it. It will probably get the 7D 19pt AF, 8 FPS and the new 18MP sensor from the T4i. I'm guessing $1200 - $1500
I'd rather have a 60D over a T4i/650D. Have you used anything other than a Rebel before? Serious question and I'm not trying to be a d*ck. The size, build quality and lack of function is just terrible compared to everything else above it. The dentist excites me more than the new 650D.
I read it that what D_Rochat was trying to say was that in his opinion that although on paper the 650D looks good, he would buy the 60D
No need to get rude about it just because he has a different opinion than you
He asked a question, I answered it. Not sure how my comment could be interpreted as rude. Maybe I should have prefaced it with "I'm not trying to be a dick or anything"..lol[/list]
