EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 7D Mark II
« on: June 28, 2012, 10:16:12 AM »
As I understand it, the introduction of the APS-H was largely a business decision used to maximize profit and had nothing to do with addressing the needs of the consumer. It was a solution looking for a problem.

Let's be honest, no one else offers anything in that particular size. Canon made a business decision, attempted to be "first to market", the market responded with a "meh," and now there is the odd-ball APS-H sensor that really has no place.

I imagine the owners of APS-H rigs feel quite differently but the truth is the truth.

Software & Accessories / Re: Battery Grip for 7D - any suggestions?
« on: June 27, 2012, 01:37:46 PM »
One of the strong points that caught my eye and convinced me to purchase the OEM Canon unit was the fact that the frame was made our of magnesium, exactly the same as the frame on the 7D. I know my OEM unit effectively communicates with the batteries also providing useful information.

Does anyone know if there has been a side-by-side caparison of all the different manufactures?

I run the Canon BG-E7 grip and it was a simple choice for me.

Considering all of the money I had spent on the camera and a few lenses the extra few dollars were well spent. There was no doubt that everything would work perfectly, fit perfectly, and were engineered to be perfectly compatible regarding construction, fit, and finish.

Lenses / Re: Circular Polarizer

When I began looking for a circular polarizer I spent some time doing some research and happened upon this lengthy article: http://www.lenstip.com/115.1-article-Polarizing_filters_test.html

I ended up selecting what I believe represented the best bang for the buck - the Marumi DHG Super Circular P.L.D. 72mm from http://www.2filter.com

Anyone else use the same product?

My father shoots a Canon 10-22 and my younger brother a Tamron 10-24 and there is no comparison: the Canon 10-22 is much better by most every measure.

OK, all votes reset to zero and APS-H added. Thanks for the interest.

Any prior voters should be able to vote again  :o

EOS Bodies / EOS 7D Mark II

I am interested in hearing your opinion regarding the image sensor format on the EOS 7D Mark II.

For fun we can compare the results to the actual release at some undetermined date in the future. I would be interested in how accurate our forum members are able to collectively predict future products.

Thanks!
