Straight from the Canon Japan website:

Shot at ISO 1600

Well, that pretty much confirms it to me. Looks pretty much like my 550d; I can already see the hallmark red/green blotches of pattern noise without even attempting to lift the shadows.

Let's hope they'll do better on the 70d. I don't see why they couldn't. From what I've seen, this problem is much better controlled on the 5d3/6d?

this image was not taken with t5i aka kiss x7i, it was taken with sl1 aka x7.  i am not sure as if anyone interest in seeing images taken with t5i?  but if you do, i have some (a portrait shot with 1600 iso is the highest iso image i have... pretty clean image). 

note:  recently found out that they have updated their website with all 8 images from t5i, so i do not need to post them up.  here is the link

another thing is that i am not sure why people are complaining about this one.  canon did not say that they are majorly upgrading nor minor upgrading this to t4i, but just said that a new version.  like someone in this threat has said that you will find a new model of car every year, but the different might be just lights...

canon, pleaseeee release your 7d mark ii....

Integrated grip and a high-density AF sensor?  Very, very interested.  Throw in noticeably better high ISO performance than the current 7D and I'm sold...

Ditto! Very exciting...

i am in for one if new 7d mark ii matches above description :)

well... if you would like to keep it, then you can use it as macro lens :) all you have to do is to pay additional around 5 buck for reserve ring:

first, third picture is not that sharp to my taste.  taking a look at the third picture, it seems like that you focused and re-composed on that image?  as if you did, please quit doing that with apeture of 1.4 unless you are standing far away from subject.

Hey, I'm grateful for offer of help, but kinda not liking that you made assumption these are pictures I care about (otherwise, why critique?). I guess my ego is too big, eh? :). And I do know that f4 or f5.6 is miles easier to work with than f1.4.

These pics are just a showcase of a problem. Picture 3 HAS a plane of sharp focus, picture 2 doesn't! Where did the focus go? What caused smudginess? Why are they not ALL like attached one? That's what I'm wondering about.

Some of my pictures I like, not necessarily all sharp :) are at

true... your liking image does not need to be sharp.  it is about the moment.  sorry about mis-understood your question.  however, i am going to delete that post so it is not going bother you...

even though i already know that i do have problem with colors, i did give it a try.  my eyes were hurt when taking a look at those, yet some of them are look the same in those rows  ;D

i bet that i will fail the test when clicking on check result...  that is why i am suck at photoshop and the mainly reason why i am trying to focus on techniques more since i somewhat trust camera color calibration :P

here is my guess:  based on number of pre-order numbers of nikon d7100 is not as many as expected, they admits their problems with d600 with a hope of drawing more pre-order on d7100...  ;D

D7k had oil smears issues too upon launch so icant see d7100 avoiding it  ;D

ummm... never heard of that problem with d7000?  might be i was not a dslr user during that time.  all i know is that number of my friends have dust and oil problems with their d600.  they all have had to traveled to los angeles several times to get their camera cleaned and all complained about parking fees and hassles...

note:  i used to laugh at people who were carrying big camera with them when traveling, but i now bet that someone is standing at somewhere in a crowd is laughing at me carrying a big camera...   ;D

oh... just notice that my status has been changed from "t4i" to "eos m"... i thought t4i is a better choice?  is there something wrong?... LOL

Ishdakuteb, those are some nice portrait shots!

thanks... i am still learning and trying my best to improve my knowledge about shooting techniques as much as i can everyday after work, ignoring everything but camera  :P

For what it's worth, assuming your shooting at a low ISO, if you crop a 5d3 image into half or whatever to match the same perspective of a crop, then essentially you are getting a clean 11MP crop vs a 24MP.  So, just to get the same pixel count as the 24MP, you have to then interpolate that by 2x to get back to 22MP... and then depending on what size you want this puppy enlarged to on print, you will likely get a cleanish but slightly softer version of the 7D at native resolutions.  At low ISO's, I would bet the 7D2 would be cleaner if you then wanted to print at full 24MP native resolution (near 16x20)...  If you wanted to print larger, I would bet the 7d still wins but even more distinct.  NOW, if you are shooting lets say ISO 1600 or ISO 3200 or faster, then I would say it would be a toss up and say the 5d3 may win that battle, just because of how clean their files are.  You can always sharpen the files so the enlargements of the 5d3 in comparison to the crop perspective look as sharp, but then as you sharpen the details, you are sharpening the noise and round and round we go. 

Except that I was not forgetting enlargement as in my experience the 7d fails even with it's theoretical crop advantage at any but unreal wildlife low iso.   I meant that by saying "the 5diii beats the current 7d in image quality when cropped to the same subject size".  Guess that should also include when printed to show the same subject size.  Sorry but the ff sensor image is at least 1.6x better than current 7d crop images, IMO and experience.

well, do not know what to say but i am loving both 7d and 5d iii.  my 30d also serve me pretty well in experimenting stuff so i am loving it too :)  here are some other images that i recently captured with 5d iii:

note:  link these images from my facebook; therefore quality of these images are not as good as previous since previous images were linked from flickr.

Even at ISO3200 my 7D usually beat my 5D3 for birds.
How so?  I have a 60D and 5D2.  Never in a million years will ANY photo that I take with the 60D at ISO 3200 even come close to the 5D2 at ISO 3200.  Not even close.  The noise and breakdown of resolution is terrible.

here are some images with iso of 3200 on my canon 7d (might look much better as if someone knows well about photoshop):

thought that canon already made that very clear, canon 7d and 7d mark ii are designed as a semi-pro dslr mainly serving for sport and wild-life photography?  unless i miss understood... any other thoughts?

One question: New sensor technology by using "white" dots (not only red green blue) to get really white dots. Does thaht Canon use too in the newer Cams?

i do not know the answer to your question :) however, i think the white dots are used to adjust brightness of nikon display?  i hate auto brightness though.  my 5d mark iii auto brightness was driving me nut during first use of shooting a wedding (note:  fyi, i am not wedding photographer.  i just want to learn while shooting though :)) )

Yes, it's more a 70d (my guess $1400+, iif it even exists) equivalent ... but disappointing? For $1200?! Starting Price! This is so economical I first thought it would be a typo - probably that's why Canon will expand the ff route like their CEO recently said, more money to be made in the high-end enthusiast's segment. The only positive news for Canon: The d7100 will be sold out for months, so Canon will have some time to counter.


i GUESS it is pretty hard for nikon to sold out d7100 as soon as they want since nikon users already hear about the rumors of nikon d400

i do not see low light captured images this time though?  normally, nikon will post some of low light capture images on any new models, but not this one.  however, imo, look like the photographer was pulling fill light on the first image quite a bit (note:  take a look at yellow color exposing directly to sunlight and beneath water - camera angle was not perpendicular with water surface; therefore, reflect light from water will be lost and will be dark in the image since the photographer was trying to get correct color from the plane.  however, this is just a guess based on my understanding about light... nothing scientific though.  in addition, set of exposure at 1/500 seconds, f/11 with iso 100 is normally for bright snow to my understanding...)

in short, nice capturing images and all are sharp to my taste...  i am not a nikon everyday user, but only weekend at costco, so put it in costco warehouse for me to play around with :P

canon... canon... canon... where is my 7d mark ii, do not turn me down and please post un-edited for us to see please...

...Now I can wait to see what the 7DII has to offer.

in term of shooting and image quality purposes, they might be the same to our normal eyes.  however, it is 2x the price because of these:

1. shutter lag
2. shutter life (more than 2x)
3. metering (i.e. iSA, spot link to AF, etc)
4. frame rate
5. sync speed
6. seals and beatup
7. build-in battery grip

that i have not yet talked about gigabit ethernet, newly design on sensor cleaning, battery life, multi-point MA, etc.

i am one of those 5d mark iii owers who are drooling for 1dx.  i can not get it even though i can afford it (do not want to make my wife and my daughters feel bad even though she will okae when i ask for it)  :(

7d mark ii is the one that i am also waiting for.  as if it is as good as rumors, then i am going to trade my 7d for 7d mark ii.  my 30d will be in my everyday bag forever :)
