Can be a good backup/light camera...

OK... if the new entry level below the t4i is going to have the 18mp sensor, then that pretty much signals the 70D and 7D mkII will (finally) have something better.
My speculation is a dual announcement event for the 70d and 7dmkII with a new sensor technology later this spring -- the 70D available immediately, the 7D mkII somewhat later. But might as well announce them at the same time to keep the 7d mkII crowd from settling for a 70D.
My 2cents: Canon seems to have hard time competing with mirrorless market, now they release small DSLR. How many crop DSLR do we really need?
Didn't use mirror lock. It might be helpful in some situations, but it wouldn't have caused this kind of motion blur.
Actually, a 1/20 s exposure is right in the range of shutter speeds (around 1/60 s to 1/2 s) where mirror slap can result in the camera shake-type blur you're seeing.
What made a dramatic improvement in lightroom, for me, is RAM Disk. I have 32GB of RAM in my machine and the bigger part of it (25GB) is used for RAM Disk. It is like 20 times faster than SSD (~9GB/sec). However, for video editing you may need more RAM (?64GB).
ANY help with Moire in video would be much appreciated. It is embarrassing
For walking around and snapping targets of opportunity, I've become very fond of the stabilized kit lens (18-55) that came with my T2i. The combination is super light and I'm not worried about accidents or theft. I had several images published in a travel magazine a few months ago.
The idea of carrying my 5D3 around with a big superzoom makes me feel tired just thinking about it!
A few days ago I tried out the 55-250 stabilized kit lens which I purchased recently for the T2i. Know what? You can take some very nice photos with that puppy if you know what you are doing. I'm thinking about trying both of these plastic kit lenses on my 7D just for fun.
17-40 has the built-in gel filter holder at the back of the lens.
Hey, I never realized that. It's quite an exciting idea, really. Does the 16-35 (II) have this as well?
Its a good question, a TS is a specialized lens why would someone recommend it for you instead of a 35mm lens without knowing what use you would have for it??If it were me, I'd stick with 5D3. 1DX and 5D3 got the same AF (almost). As for low light performance, 1DX is just a little bit better. I suggest getting 1DX only if more than 6fps performance is crucial to you. Your macbook is also important since it is so good to edit raw files using mac. If I were you, I'd like a good TS-E lens instead of the 35 though.
Sorry if this sounds stupid but what would be the application for a ts-e?
