The pricing for the SX520 seems over priced compared to the competition.  The Panasonic FZ70 has a 20-1200mm f2.8-f5.9 lens vs the SX520 with 24-1000mm f3.4-6.0.  The FZ70 also comes with an EVF and 1080p60 video, both of which are missing on the SX520.  The FZ70 came out at the same list price as the SX520 although you can get it for less than $300 now. 

Both of these models seem like they are too little and too late to market.  This doesn't bode well for the SX60.

Even the SX50 outperforms FZ70 continuous AF.  Why won't it bode well for SX60?  SX50 is even sharper.


Even in the noise department, your FZ70 pales in comparison.

Still my most loved lens...   ;)

There goes Canon again beating their chest.

How many video cameras were Canon at FIFA this year? Oh... NONE :P

Who's one of the MAJOR SPONSORS of FIFA?  ::)

Except for some unnatural colors (purely subjective), I love most of the shots.  Inspiring as you said...   Thanks for showing us.  It's time to pack again my gears.  :)

That last thing you need if you are under water is a zoom. What you want is super-wide and stabilized and low noise.

Waterproof doesn't mean it's only for underwater.  There are lots of scenarios where it's very useful.  That said, it must be as small as the D30 series...

Thanks to those who replied to my question, it makes more sense to me now, and I appreciate your insight.  Sometimes it's hard to understand why people enjoy a certain thing when you much prefer the opposite, and is why I was curious and asked.

To bdunbar79, any sense of entitlement you perceive is your own creation, because there is none.  I apologized in advance in case anyone misjudged my tone, and explained why I prefer a text version, and was seeking an explanation "from the other side", so to speak.  Apparently you just enjoy causing arguments, of which I will not give you the pleasure of.

No Mayo, where did I ever say I was not trying to draw attention to myself at work?  Not being able to watch that long of a video does not equate to trying not to draw attention on myself.  I explained numerous times how I wanted to find out the reasons for a video instead of text.  Obviously, I prefer text.  When did it become wrong to try to see the other side?  Where I come from, that's admirable, not arrogant.

Or simply, you can ask RLPhoto for a transcription or text version.  Then everybody's happy. Everybody got his own preference.  Just my 2 cents, if you don't prefer videos, then just simply don't bother with the post and move on or ask if he's offering the same review in your preferred format.  You're clearly inviting arguments when you write your heavily opinionated statements there. ::)

damn you guys just gave me GAS, here comes a 16-35mm F4 :)   

i like doing landscapes so far i have been using the 24-105mm will i like this lens? is the IQ going to be noticeably better?

I think if you're happy with 24mm, it won't.  You'll only buy this lens if you want something wider than 24mm.

I've used 500D previously and now a 6D with my 100mm F2.8 macro usm non-L.  I still prefer 500D if there's good light.  I'll only use 6D if there's not much light.  500D image is still sharper than a cropped image from 6D.

So, I wonder if someone else is posting under the same "Dilbert" name...if Mr. Dilbert has multiple personality disorder or if he considers it acceptable social behavior to make rude, denigrating comments to insult the abilities of others.

Yes, I have a multiple personality disorder, so what?

That's nice.  Then they'll never believe you.   Well your opinion will just be an opinion, never a winning argument then.  The well is poisoned.   Nobody will ever drink from it.   ::)

the 6D is a better camera even it costs more than the 5D3

6D is cheaper.  It's around 1 L-lens cheaper...

You can write an OS script to transfer all your files automatically so you won't miss anything.  Just one click, all your files are transferred.  I can write one if you want one.  :)

17-40L and 24-105L.  They're my most loved lens (aside from the 100mm non-L USM macro F2.8 and the 50mm F1.8 II which I love more).

thanks guys

gezz i can't go for all lens now :)

1) EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM  or EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM

2) EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM LATER

3) EF 35mm f/2

i think i will go for these 2 now  , also guys

i saw some reviews about this lens EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM they said it's also good on sharpness and contrast , only different is the 1 F-stop more light

for me i want to shoot landscape, building, street , desert ...etc maybe some portrait of my kids

Do i need flash ? for the camera , i may use some shoots at night near lake or something :)

Speedlite 600EX-RT , and which remote is good to use the camera

i know i ask so much here but i need to start in good shape ;)

Just a suggestion, it might be good to consider getting the 24-105L as a kit lens.  You can sell it later for a profit if you really want to go for the 24-70mm F2.8 II.  I initially planned to get the 24-70II also but settled with the 24-105L due to its flexibility.  I find that I like primes more when doing portrait photography.  For the kind of money for 24-70L II, you can already get a good 17-40L and a 24-105L.  (Just thinking out loud...)   ;)  For most landscapes, I kind of prefer an FL wider than 24mm.  You can also take a look at the very good Samyang 14mm if you're not the "filter" type.

If you like manual, a good Yongnuo flash + Yongnuo trigger are very good investments.  Currently, I'm using Nissin flash + Yongnuo manual flash and triggers and didn't find any problem.  If you want to use E-ttl though, Canon flashes might be a better investment.
