EOS Bodies / Re: Images for EOS Rebel 750D & EOS 760D Appear
« on: February 04, 2015, 05:18:10 PM »
It is intriguing two models with identical specifications, and differ only in size, buttons and LCD on top ... ???

It is quite strange... Maybe one of them is Full Frame?

No, that would have to be the 760 and it has a small sensor as is apparent from the size of the mirror in the product image.

I know, I'm just covering my eyes and ears and pretending my dreams would come true... :)

FF Sensors are much more expensive than APS-C sensors, so you won't see a FF Canon in the 500-1000 € range so far I fear :-/.
Else it has the white square indicating EF-S lenses, so surely no FF on the 760D ;)

It would be interesting to see if the market would purchase a truly Rebel body with FF sensor. The 6D has been really cheap, so maybe with a lesser build they could get the price sub $1000? They could even just use the same 6D sensor to save on RandD and make it cheap with more volume?

Sony managed to get the prive of the A7 down really far during the sales. Still is cheap!

I just had a thought that the 760D might be a way for Canon to explore the market for a full frame Rebel. I think a full frame Rebel would definitely benefit from the added usability features such as the top LCD, rear control dial etc because it would be aimed at more discerning photographers (with small hands).

I have to admit the 760D looks sweet  8) An enticing small aps-c body with good ergonomics and prosumer usability?

EOS Bodies / Re: The New Rebel Will be Called the 760D
« on: February 04, 2015, 01:45:42 AM »
I own a lot of Canon stuff and like it, but is another Rebel really necessary?
Yes if it means some new stuff like top-LCD (or maybe even some EVF/mirrorless things, that would be crazy!) and new xxMP or "new" 70D/7DII sensor. If it is the same as what, four rebels before then no thank you. :D

It makes sense from a marketing point of view, giving the average consumer access to the 'latest' technology and a reason to buy the newest model at a premium ::)

EOS Bodies / Re: What will become of the 5D Mark III?
« on: February 03, 2015, 01:39:06 AM »
I'm going to skip the mkiv... it might be cleaner at a high stop of iso, it might have 4k, it might have gps, but I'm really quite happy with the mkiii. 

That's an amazing thing to say when the camera specs aren't clear yet. We're assuming evolution but what if it's more than that? Who knows what new or (much) improved feature(s) will tempt you? 

So get your head out of the sand and never say never again ;)

Lenses / Re: 17-40 ---> 16-35 f4
« on: February 01, 2015, 01:03:30 PM »
I bought the 16-35 at full asking the first day of availability. I don't regret a second.

This lens gets the same sort of acclaim the Sigma 35mm did/does. That lens also does not disappoint me.

26
I can see how this would work with say fullframe lenses on an aps-c body (lots of redundant image circle that was designed to be used) does it also work with full frame lenses on full frame?  Sure there will be some extra image circle, but it may be right at the limit, vignetting, image quality issues etc?

Not convinced.

No. Unless you want massive vignetting.

27
when you say converts, I take it you mean in terms of depth of field rather than actually letting more light in?

No, it actually INCREASES the amount of light that hits the sensor by gathering it from the projection circle of a full frame lens and then squeezing it into the area of the APS-C sensor, much like a magnifying glass does (if you've tried to start a fire with a magnifying glass, then you'll know what I mean). Speed goes up by ~1 stop, and it alters the equivalent focal length too. A 135mm on the a6000 becomes 1.5x132=203mm. Reduce that by multiplying by 0.71x (which is the effective magnification of the speed booster) and it becomes 144 mm. The speed booster works like an inverse tele-converter so instead of loosing stops and gaining focal length, it works the other way around.

However that brings me to a problem that is becoming more common as my lens collection improves and expands: How to distance myself of lenses that I truly love but which I have effectively replaced? This is what's likely to happen to the 17-40L. Because it has served me so well and it is the single best handling lens on a gripless 5D* body that I use for travel.... I think I would be really sad to see it go.

You're thinking about this too hard.  I did the 17-40 to 16-35 upgrade and have not missed the 17-40 one bit.  Once you see the vast improvement in image quality and performance enhancements that the 16-35 gives compared to the 17-40, you won't think twice about the 17-40.

Haha thanks, that's the kind of comment that gives me confidence. Still I think I'll probably buy the 16-35 f/4 before selling the 17-40L. When the difference becomes clear it'll be a lot easier to art with my beloved 17-40  ;D

(if anyone can point me in the direction of how to post tables I'd be greatful..   things like <table> etc don't work on this site)

Take a screenshot and upload an image file? ;)

I'm still chugging along with my 17-40L. Together with the 24-105L it is the core of my travel lens kit, and with a EW-83H hood of which I've trimmed the side petals I am able to use the same modified hood on both lenses, very convenient because it actually saves a lot of space.

Mind, if I required a wide angle zoom more outside of travel, I would consider the 16-35 f/4 but as a kit I prefer the 17-40 with the 24-105. For day to day shooting I more often use wa primes but who knows at some point I may get the 16-35 f/4 too.

OK update, I will be travelling to China this year and the trip will focus on cultural heritage so there will be many massive sights, (forbidden city/great wall/terracotta army and the Yunggang and Longmen buddhist cave complexes for instance) so 'L fever' has been sneaky again and now I'm now seriously considering getting the 16-35 f4 L IS for this trip and beyond.
