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 :)) )

Disappointed.

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...)

http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/dslr/d7100/sample.htm

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 :)

people always say the 7d range is a  great wildlife camera,im sure it is, af, long reach etc. but surely image quality should be paramount?  otherwise why dont all wildlife photographers carry 7d's?

...you can achieve with something like the 7D and a 400mm or 500mm lens for FAR less cost...

FAR stands for "Free After Rebate"...  ;D

i am in for one as long as canon can make it low noise at high iso (do not really much care about luminosity noise, but color noise is annoying).  cannot imagine that 61 new focus points speading through out corner of the screen... love it

note:  do not forget about trying to add an option which toggles between AE Lock Hold and AE Lock Cancel, pefer not to keep my thumb full time on a button for holding exposure... my thumb should be on my joint stick to select my desired focus point :P

What If.... It also had built In RT triggers for speedlites? I'd trade that for GPS/WIFI anyday :o

did not think about that... this option is great.

magic lantern?

I'd prefer something officially supported - botching a production because of something unexpected happening in conjunction with a hack would seriously suck.

3. exposure hold (options to enable not to timeout as long as new exposure is choosen).  i believe that with this option, i would probably moving faster than now in Av and Tv mode.  for now, i have to use manual mode all the time since exposure would be canceled during the time that i am playing around with focus point(s)

the AE lock holds for 4 seconds on the 7D. I do believe that it will lock continuously so long as you press the button at least once every 4 seconds, though i have not tested this as i do not use this feature often.

that is what i thought, but there is an option of exposure hold offered in canon 7d (not sure exactly what this does (not playing around with this option that much since i found out that it is also timed out.  i prefer there is an option to hold it until i am going to cancel it or choose another exposure.

it is kinda slow when choosing focus point and keep track exposure at the same time.  however, there is a work around in this case (i do not like it but having no choice as if i am choosing to shoot in Av or Tv) which i have haft press  shutter again prior to choosen exposure time out.  :(

as current rumor specs of 7d mark ii, it is a great config, in fact i am loving it already :)  not sure how noise at high iso turn out.

note:  if canon can help me to put this option into my 5d mark iii, i would love my canon gears more :)

sound like a great camera and there is two things that i would like to add to this camera if canon could help:
1. highlight alert (i.e. default/or auto enable like canon 20d, 30d, etc) when viewing image with histogram
2. spot metering circle (options to enable it as if it in other metering mode is selected. not just like 7d, it only offer with spot metering mode)
3. exposure hold (options to enable not to timeout as long as new exposure is choosen).  i believe that with this option, i would probably moving faster than now in Av and Tv mode.  for now, i have to use manual mode all the time since exposure would be canceled during the time that i am playing around with focus point(s)

note:
1. on the third option, i am not sure if i know how to use it properly on my canon 7d. but even setting up with exposure hold.  it would not hold my exposure like i have stated  :(
2. feel free to add to my wish list  ;)
