I wish the 1Dx had GPS because I'd find it useful for landscape photography. Other than that, I can't think of a reason why I'd use it.

Lots of talk about NIKON’s better performing sensors. Some-one please correct me if I am wrong but, doesn’t SONY make NIKON’s FF sensors and only have FF since they could source from SONY. NIKON are assemblers of others components. Sure, CANON went to sleep, helped by their massive market share and profitability. CANON is milking the old technology, makes for more profit and hence more R&D dollars. Manufacturers can’t always have leading and bleeding edge technology; however, I won’t be surprised if CANON starts to get serious in the near future. I think that SONY is the ELEPHANT in the room and could further eat into both NIKON and CANON’s market share. Competition is always great for we camera consumers.
thanks, how about 17 place in the sensor rankings?Sleeping is Canon, they have nothing to introduce in resolution, DR etc today
Nothing I have seen
It's hard to see anything when you're wearing blinDRs.
The 1D X has an excellent new AF system and a faster frame rate than any FF dSLR, ever. But Canon is sleeping because Mikael is afflicted with DxOMark synDRome. Whatever.
Im talking about DR, resolution, sensor tech not AF
You and Jrista have a funny way to answer here at CR , if we are discussing cars I will not answer you about motor cycles
Is it a big trauma for you that Canon are at 17 place in the sensor rankings?
and maybe have one of the best AF?
Mikael, your still on about DR? Lol. That's Cute.
or do you still think 85/1,2 is the best 85mm, etc etc the list can be long!
a little more nuanced view might be nice
Thank you for all the feedback. I'm ok with a little noise; I got the photo attached tonight and it has been put through LR4 for lens profile and 30 NR. That one isn't too bad but the wiggle room for either less noise or more shutter/aperture would help.
After 4 years using Canon gear i am thinking of selling all my stuff and switch over to Nikon to get better sensor performance. The lenses of Nikon are not as good as Canon's but with the Nikon sensor the (DSLR+Lens combi) scores are much better. "It's the combi that makes the picture"
What do you all think?
Keep waiting till Canon gets up (again) with Nikon?
I think this can take a long time... Maby never... Or are there any rumors canon wil get back on top soon?
Nil. I joined this forum with an open mind to learn and share ideas. There's no need take anything personal and I do respect other people's opinion although it may contradict with mine. After all, life is so short.
Unfortunately, no matter how low of a monthly fee you suggest you will never convince the contingent of users who refuse to accept "renting" software. You see, they believe that they "owned" the software when they bought in the past and could use it forever and ever and ever to infinity and beyond. They feel that "Adobe owns you" once you sign up to a subscription model because if you ever stop paying you can't access your old PSD files. And they also fear that once everyone accepts the subscription model Adobe will jack up the prices on us.
This guy is genius. Adobe will lock you down, adobe will raise the prices and adobe will own you.
I guess mine will have to be 'inspected and repaired free of charge'. Rather annoying...
For portraits of just one child when I don't have control over the background, I use the 85/1.2L II, and usually at f/1.6-f/2 for sufficient DoF. So the 85/1.8 would be a good choice. With >1 kid in the picture, f/2.8 or narrower is usually needed for sufficient DoF, so I'd go with the 24-70/2.8 II for that.
As for the 6D, weren't you previously asking about a smaller camera (NEX, Fuji) for Disney? Now you want to carry a pair of full-size dSLRs?
Well it was just a thought. I think the 85 1.8 sounds good. I do have the sony nex 6 but its not a dslr and the controls are harder. I do like the iQ but do not want to invest in glass for two systems. I just thought prime on one body and 24-70 on the othe so I could just switch bodies based in need. I could use a second body back home also so it would not be just for this trip. Again that was a thought that most likely will not happen. I will probably go with what I have and accept my focal length or dof limitations as a trade off for having fun on my vacation. Really wish canon would have release that supposed ver 2 of the eos m so I could have brought that. Do you find the focusing slow with the 85mm for active kids?
What you're seeing first is a jpeg preview, then when the RAW loads, it is displayed. RAW files are mean to be processed, hence the lower contrast and saturation.
Because of this.
Because of that.
Not to devalue your frustration at all, but wire transfers are very finicky things. The slightest irregularity perceived on the receiving end by the receiving bank and the transfer is refused. The fault was probably not Adorama's, I doubt they have a wire house on site. It was likely the sending bank didn't coordinate properly with the receiving bank, or they would have known that an address was required.
I hope you get your gear soon. Tell us, what did you get? That is the fun stuff!
