At 3,000.00, a used 1D MK IV will be a far better camera than a $1800 7D MK II.

Precisely, an $1800 7D Replacement won't exist

Good guess, but that's all it is until it comes out.

Come to think of it, we can probably predict the price better than the specs.  $2149-$2599 is a hole in Canon's lineup barring price movements and speccing the body between the 5D3 and 1Dx, which is between $4999 and $5499 but that would have to be specced between those 2 bodies, which would be enticing too.

EOS Bodies / Pricing for the 7D Replacement
« on: August 28, 2014, 10:52:42 AM »
Judging by the specs, the new body should fall between the $3399 list of the 5D3 and the $1899 of the 6D.  I'm guessing a $2599 list.  It won't be below the $1899 of the 6D because the 70D is at $1199 and Canon doesn't want to cannibalize those sales.  If they use the 5D3/6D ratio, then a new APS-C body would be $2149 which would be great and shouldn't affect 6D sales.

Somewhere between $2149 and $2599 is doable unless the used 1D Mark IV falls below $2000

I assume you are including me in the "FF snobs" comment? If so why, what do you know about my needs, current gear and the 7D MkII that I don't?

Oh I own a 1D too.


No, but you did.  But you made me read your post.  You say you have no interest in a "performance" crop body but you still own a 1D?  Incidentally, the 7D and the 1Ds Mk III were aimed at different segments.  While the 7D is better for some, the 1Ds III is better for others.  I've seen 7Ds on the sports sidelines and no 1Ds IIIs.   It's the reverse in the studio.  I have FF, APS-H, and APS-C bodies that I use in different situations.  The 1Dx would replace all 3  but at twice the cost. I don't know your needs but you don't know everyone else's either.

Wow, FF snobs abound......everyone knows the 1D Marks I-IV are crop bodies, right?

Actually if it has 10fps, usable ISO to 6400, 45AF points, dual CF and SD cards, and dual pixel AF, it will be better than the 1D Mark IV.  Now, it depends on price compared to the 1D Mark IV.  If the new body is close to those specs, I'm going to replace my 5D Mark II, 1D Mark III, and 70D with the new body, a 1D Mark IV, and a 6D.  Or sell every one of them and add $2000 to buy a 1Dx.

I had two 7D's, 5 40D's, along with other APS-C cameras.  Even the entry level FF bodies have better IQ and are cheaper, In fact, I picked up a old 5D classic for $350 last weekend, and its better as well.

Better than what?

I will buy two 1D Mark IVs or a 1Dx if their prices drop.  The used 1D Mark IV prices seem to have dropped $1000 in the last 6 months in anticipation of the new body's release.

Sounds like this camera should be priced around $2499 not $3499

Just had an MP-E 65mm Macro 1x-5x lens for a week through CPS so I added it and my adapter to my EOS-M.  Handheld and just for fun.....I should have figured out a way to turn off the darn AF since it kept using the AF assist for an MF lens.  The shutter delay was painful so I shot the rest of the time with my 5D2

Do test shots with a friend or two.  Pick a time when the lighting is to your advantage.  Practice staging your shot with the equipment you have.

14
Shoot them in front of the arch and frame the arch around their heads as much as you can.  Use a small aperture to bring the arch and tracks into view.  Illuminate the couple since they will be backlit.  I'd use a 50 or 35 lens with a FF camera, 24 or 35 with a crop body.

EOS Bodies / 1D Mark IV Prices Dropping?
« on: July 01, 2014, 07:46:24 PM »
It looks like prices are starting to dip and sales of 1D Mark IVs are slowing in anticipation of a new body.  It looks like Canon is blowing out 7D refurbs too.
