EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 6D Listed as Discontinued at Amazon UK

Deserves an answer. But no time now. Stay tuned...

I'm popping popcorn. This should be good. ;)

+1.

Obviously, someone is struggling...

Lenses / Re: Review: PowerShot G7 X via DXOMark
« on: October 26, 2014, 11:13:29 PM »
While DXOMark scores are still considered as rubbish, the base ISO DR data for G7X is interesting. 12.7 eV is wider than that in all of Canon sensors, including their top end 1DX.

Hmmm....  :P

What is the file size of web and print mode in DPR? I compared 7d,7dII, 100d, 70d,  700d and d7100. All are same. I only notice difference when I added 6d to the comparison which is better than all of them at the same ISO.
Thanks

Similar observation here. All the APS-C outputs look similar although A6000 appears to be the worst.

6D is definitely 1 stop better than the various APS-C cameras.

The differences between full frame and APS-C sensors used to be small. Now they are approaching tiny.

The differences between sensors of different brands but of roughly the same size used to be tiny, now they are approaching miniscule...

If your goal in life is to lift shadows by five stops and shoot dark rooms that have the exposure set for an open window, then another brand might be your better option.

As for my own personal situation, as a 5DIII owner, I'm intrigued by the 7D, but a better investment of my resources would be in either the new Tamron or Sigma  600 zooms.

Well said. I honestly don't see significant differences between the various APS-C sensors.

If the 7D2 is 200g lighter, I will have pre-ordered a copy.

He left Nikon APS-C for Sony:

It's about reduced size/weight and video capabilities, both offered by Sony A6000.

Clearly, Bob has no need for:
- lightweight f/4 telephoto lens
- >= 100 mm macro lens
- accessories such as dedicated wireless remote (prefer not to use phone)
- reliable AF tracking

EOS Bodies / Re: 7D MkII RAW sample images
« on: October 15, 2014, 11:19:12 PM »
Look at the shaded side of the pushed bar. Poor color rendition, it's got that red-weighted color blotching and mottling, and the noise levels are very high. And those are downsampled as well. For a downsampled image, that's not very good.

All that is at ISO 3200. Are we sure the D7100 or A6000 won't show similar issues at ISO 3200?

Blotchy, scratchy, lacking in color fidelity. :(

Not sure how one can tell color fidelity from those images. After all, there is WB adjustments in RAW conversion etc.

Blotchy, scratchy... Are we sure Nikon D7100 APS-C sensor won't show the same limitations at high ISO in a side-by-side comparison?

It's the same 11-bit DR sensor, nothing to see here, move along.

I bet you are right.

But those images honestly do NOT show any limitation imposed by a sensor with 11 stops DR at base ISO.

No new sensor == no sale for me.

Same here

What Canon is doing, is basically handing all of the first time buyers to Nikon.

Not Nikon. More likely Sony

Note that Canon would need to develop cheap kit zoom - 28-55 and cheap tele zoom 55-300 for these cameras.

Canon already has the newly introduced 24-105 f/3.5-5.6 IS STM as well as the aged 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS (non-L) cheap lenses.

I'll appreciate having 6D M2 with 60D (not 70D/7D please) AF sensor.

Why can't Canon introduce their ancient 1D2 45pt AF sensor in their later camera bodies, now that the 5D3/1Dx/7D2 already have the best?

If Canon is not happy with the sales figures of the G1X/G1X Mk 2/6D, they ought to read the reviews in DPReview.
