.I am currently in maui on vacation with my wife photographing humpbacks and birds and our kit consists of 70d + 70-300L that my wife uses ,my gear is the 6d and the 7d II and lens include 24-105 L -100 L macro and 100-400II with the 1.4x III for a little extra range for birds.
I am considering the new 100-400 (II). How well does it AF with 70D and 7D M2 and the 1.4x III?
I am really impressed with the 7d mII and the 100-400 mk II they work really well together along with the 1.4x III the AF is super fast and dead on .the 70d works well on the 100-400 II also
I like the idea of a 24-32mp sensor as it gives the flexibility of both resolution and of ISO performance. The 1Dx2 would be the high ISO champ in the future lineup, the 5Ds studio camera, and 5D4 as a general purpose all rounder.
I'd probably keep my 5D3 with a spec list like this.
any reason all the new canon lenses are F4 ?
Depending on the cost and IQ, I will sell my 18-135 STM and pick this one up for my all-around/travel lens.
The rumor does clearly state this is a test camera. But with an announcement coming in the fall - you'd think Canon has the specs 99% set.
There is NO WAY that Canon will decrease megapixel count. Megapixels can only go up, never down as that is difficult for marketing to overcome. They could only go down by creating a new camera on a different line for a special purpose. Otherwise, for MP to go down, the specs would have to be incredible. 1DX type specs. Canon isn't going to hand down the 1DX sensor and shutter to the 5D line. I don't remember a 2nd tier pro camera inheriting the previous generation flagship specs. The flagship models keep certain strengths for longer.
My prediction remains the same, around 24MP
If their sensor technology has improved, then they can still get one more stop improvement from it, with a native 51K ISO.
The FPS is also way too high. Expected FPS would be anywhere from 7-8. My prediction is 8. 10 is too high...gets too close to 1D series. Those who want high FPS and FF would be able to avoid spending $6K on a 1D series. That's not how Canon does things.
4K sounds right.
61 or 65 point all cross type AF sounds right. Curious about the number of dual-cross points...

My 16-35/4 lens is excellent, from center to corner and edges, with architecture and indoors shots as well.
its compact, but more importantly you have the 200 to 300 range available to you. with 24 105 IS or 24 70 and the 70 300 in tow you will not miss a shot (except indoor action pics)
