Another tacky-chic item for the "Hello Kitty" prepube crowd.

Actually that makes this camera bag very Japanese! Go Canon!

Oh wait. Too late  ;D

Wow for that money at least they threw in the  18-55mm IS STM  ???

Because Canon has the best DSLR system, period. And the best ergonomics.

But they have the worst mirrorless in the half hearted EOS-M so for that part I've embraced Sony.

So I was recently presented with the opportunity to trade out my seldom used 24-70II for a Fuji Xt-1 w/ kit lens and 56/1.2.

I am now officially invested in systems with Canon (6D and EOS M), Sony (A7r), and Fuji (xt-1 and x100s).


Congratulations on the XT-1, it's a very nice camera and talking about investing in systems, there are a lot of good but pricey lenses for that one too, that's where most of the hit will come from if you want to expand your systems.

Despite liking the Fuji system very much, I've decided to stick with Sony and recently went from a NEX-6 to the a6000 and the 16-70 Zeiss. If I had the opportunity to switch systems before, that lens is expensive enough to commit me fully both from a cost and convenience point of view (selling and buying lenses to change systems is such a hassle too).

Tight spaces!  ;D

This is a cool lens  8) However it also continues the trend of bigger (and heavier) ='better' ? ???

In the grand scheme of things, I don't think the 7D II will live up to many peoples prior expectations that it would be a "5D III high ISO killer"...simply isn't going to happen.

In the grander scheme of things that was never a realistic expectation though.

True, but a lot of people had hopes that would be the case. Just saying, the preliminaries are pretty much crushing that hope. :P It's better than the 7D (as it damn well should be!), but nothing exceptionally good...its a small evolutionary improvement over the 70D.

It would be reasonable to expect the sensor to approach the 5DMkIII's in iso performance, but it clearly does not. Happily so, because it means I won't fall into the 7D 'digital teleconverter' trap twice and rather save up for some serious long glass.

As for crop sensors, Sony has served me fine. In fact the NEX-6 that I previously owned already easily had the 7D beat on sensor performance. The a6000 very nearly matches the NEX-6 high iso performance despite the significant increase in pixel density.

Don't buy one "to get it all in"

I beat you to it ;)

Although I did shoot a few Panos at 16mm pretty happy with the results.

A 24mm can give the same results and higher effective resolution if you stitch a panorama. You're cropping off the top and bottom that give the real wide angle effect.

Exaggerated perspective. If you think the main application of a wide angle lens is to 'get it all in', you've missed the point. Watch a Bollywood movie and you'll know what I mean. A wide angle lens is the ultimate tool to add 'drama'.

   I am a similar situation as you.  I have three kids and I don't shoot professionally.  But I love the 5D3's.  Used to have the original 7D and since going to 5D3, had to sell it (the 7D).  I stopped using the 7D altogether and it was just collecting dusk.  Since then, I'd been happy shooting with 5D3.  The spec on new 7D2 looks great, but I would never let go of my 5D3.  If anything, I would get a 6D or another 5D3.  Full frame all the way for me.

I concur. The 7D managed to survive next to my 5DMkII (due to AF performance, not IQ) but the 5DMkIII killed it.

It's sharper and more contrasty but still quite noisy. I wonder how this compares to the 5D Mk III sensor.

I feel like I could make a new post every day how much I want this lens...

(Un)fortunately winter is coming, a time when I find I have less need for longer lenses - so more time to contemplate and save up :)

Nice to see these 'traditional' corrected double Gauss designs, almost an assurance of high MTF but lower contrast and sharpness wide open. Great artistic value :)
