Are Canon cameras still outselling Nikon cameras 10:1?

It will all come down to the optical quality. It has to about match the 100-400L at 400mm and f/5.6. If it's substantially worse than that, and up-res of the 100-400L might beat it.I kind of disagree, simply because this goes to 600mm. If it can match the 100-400 at f/5.6, then thats a really impressive feat, but, I think its equally important for it to be as sharp at 60mm as the 100-400 or 400 prime would be with a TC on. Cause if it is, then the fact it does it natively could be another leg up.
But really, the key is gonna be price. If its around the same price as the 200-500, then the range it gives might cause birders to go with it over the 100-400 (IS less important, and 600mm more critical than 400mm). Especially if a new 100-400 comes out and raises prices. If it costs more like $1300, then I can't see as many going with it
What I meant was, it'll have to be as good at 600mm and f/6.3 as the 100-400L is at 400mm and f/5.6. If it's not, an upres of or teleconverter attached to the 100-400L could equal or beat the Tamron, making it pointless.
I'm confused about most the comments here.
Comparing a REBEL and a 7D to 5D II or 1DX is just not happening.
I have used all cameras and i would much rather crop pictures from a 5D II because of one simple reason.
The image quality from a rebel is simply put A LOAD OF CRAP. Doesn't matter how much reach you get if you only get to keep 1% of the pictures because of poor imqge quality. You can zoom in with 5D II pictures a whole lot and the image quality is still awesome!
"Quantities are limited so act fast"
Why should we act fast?
I notice on the splash page, http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/standard_display/EOS1DX_firmware, that the first lens listed as newly compatible with the 1.4x is the 70-300L. WTF? The two aren't physically compatible. Does Canon want to boost service revenue by repairing broken elements?
You wouldn't go offroad with a racecar or wear slick tires in the mud.Those of you who defend DxO scores, why do you have Canon gear?Because Canon offers the better package. It's not all about the sensor. It's the combination of the sensor, AF, ergonomics, processor and lenses. Similar to cars, where one company offers the better engine, but another company offers the better car. The best engine won't do the job if the car "sucks"
Maybe as you say, because they really don't have anything now that can match Nikon when it comes to sensors (or, more hopefully, they have something in the wings, but want Nikon to think they are still stuck in the past).
If you know or remember Paul Pope from DPReview, this well-informed guy has this to say:
"Not the best they could do by any means but rather the best they were permitted to do by the bean counters concerned with wafer yield in their sensor manufacturing...
But don't be too concerned the best Canon CAN do is still to come ..."
"I believe Canon's latest sensor technology is going to be showcased later this year. The video camera gives us a hint of what's to come I'm told."
"I don't believe its a 5 series camera .... more like a 1DXs type of thing.
I think it shoots video at a bit more then 1080p as well ...."
So, we can expect the high megapixel sensor to appear in a 1D body. And if the engineers manage to convince the bean counters they have the yield under control, we may very well see the latest sensor technology from Canon in it.
So, just take look at the center resolution of the image.
Ok, now that I'm on my computer instead of my phone, I did. The Sony image looks sharper.
Of course, if I oversharpened the 5DII image as the Sony in-camera settings seem to be doing, it would be sharper still, but it would probably have the purple jaggies just like you see in this crop of the Sony image...
Has Canon really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like about the new sensors yet?
my head exploded trying to comprehend this question.
It wasn't a question! It was an answer! The meaning of life! Wow!
