Hello all I have been wondering as of late that everyone seems to be on the full frame band wagon, I see the benefit to them but for wildlife crop is still better, I am wondering is canon going to make a new better crop camera to replace the 7D and 1Dmk4 as there seems to be a big hole in the market right now.
It seems odd that that canon does not have a camera that can focus at F8 I was thinking this probably wont last long as they just redesigned there 2x extender I am sure that cost them a bit in R@D and doubt they would do that if they where not going to have a camera that would work with it in the future.
On another note with regard to image processors do they help lower noise in raw files or does that only apply to jpegs when canon says the DIGIC 5+ has 20% lower noise ect.
Thanks guys I took some shots today an they came out better, I did some quick tests with the af and I think its right.
I think my big problem is just camera shake my tripod head is crap, when I upped the shutter to 1/2000 it got sharper. You can see full size version at my flicker page http://www.flickr.com/photos/54773292@N07/
I still think my K5 is sharper but we will see as I take more with this combo.
Since getting my 7d I have noticed it has more iso steps them my K5, with the K5 is 100,200,400 and so on but the 7d has far more levels. I have seen a lot of people say don't use the half stops why is this? does using the odd numbers increase noise?
