EOS Bodies / Re: Too early to sell 60D?
« on: February 27, 2013, 12:23:58 AM »
As the title of this post states, I am wondering what others think about me getting rid of my 60D with hopes Canon is soon to launch the 70D or whatever it may be? The only real reason I am considering selling it now, is that I am afraid the value will decrease again once it's replacement is released & I will end up not getting very much for it.
Normally, I don't like to buy the latest/greatest until it has had a bit of time on the market to iron out bugs and such, but I am sick of the ISO performance of the 60D and can't afford to go to a Mk3 and I have no interest in the 6D. Thanks for any and all advice!

Don't expect too much on ISO performance for the 70D.  If anything else, Canon will just introduce better noise reduction.  If you really want to decrease noise, you have to go for a larger sensor.  Investing on a better lens is also better than investing on another

Lenses / Re: What are Canon's sharpest lenses?

100mm macro usm.  It's the sharpest lens I've tried so far even at 2.8.

Your lens might need an AFMA or send it to Canon with your camera so they can fine-tune it.  I've done the same thing for my 28mm.

Here's a sample.  I used a 500D + 50mm F1.8.  You don't need an expensive equipment to get good pictures.

I'm using APS-C and I find my 28mm F1.8 and 50mm F1.8 very useful and convenient.  If you have a full frame, I'm guessing that a 40-50mm + 85mm focal range are also nice.  Flash must be avoided if you can thus a fast lens is a must.  A good video LED light is also much preferable than a speedlight if you want some creative lighting.

Yawn. If Canon would look to the RX1 for some inspiration, then I might consider it.

That, but the price.  RX1 is too expensive.

Got my pitchfork ready. Any other 1st Generation EOS M owners want to join me in angrily marching on Canon's Headquarters?

That's what you get when you're too excited on something.  Let it brew a little and it'll taste better. :)

If they can somehow make the AF decent enough (at least at rebel level of speed), I think EOS M will have a lot of buyers, not only those from the beginner/enthusiast level but also from the professional level (as a very handy backup camera).

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Transition from Nikon to Canon

How tight is the budget? 
There are some nice images on your Flickr photo stream, I guess my only question would be what's holding you back with the d90 that you think will improve with a 60d?
Thank you for your precise opinion.
I think d90 is an excellent camera and I don't think 60d would increase my skills photographically.
But I made my decision for some reasons I a have mentioned and the investment on nikon lenses was very little as well.

And you are right!! budget is very tight and under USD 850 for body and a initial lens.


Thank you everyone for your informative views. It really helped me a lot

If I were on your shoes, it'll be a 5Dc + 40mm / 50mm.  If I can only turn back time...

Switching isn't the answer.  You can use any of the two systems and get better at photography.  If you really want a full frame, go for a second-hand D700 should you decide to stick with Nikon.  If you really want Canon, go for a 5Dc if your budget doesn't permit you or a 5D2.  Don't go for a 60D or 650D because they're not really what you're aiming for.  Just go for an FF camera ASAP so you'll learn how to shoot with it as soon as possible.  Framing is a little bit different from an APS-C aside from the benefits of a larger sensor.

It looks like everybody compares D7100 with 7D2 rumors but in my opinion this camera should be competition to 70D ... Specs are really interesting with very nice price tag but we will see how it performs in the real world situations. I'm especially interested in reviews of ISO performance, f/8 center point AF and how IQ is affected by missing low pass filter.

I would really like to see some Nikon features to become standard in Canon enthusiasts level cameras as well. For example 100% viewfinder and 2 SD card slots.

I bet 70D will have an 11 or 9 points AF, 1 SD card slot, smaller and priced almost the same as D7100.  Viewfinder will be around 95-97%.  :(

PowerShot Cameras / Re: Any rumors about the G16?
« on: February 21, 2013, 01:08:18 AM »
Hey I'm new to the forum and after doing a search couldn't find anything regarding a possible release date or specs for the G16. The reason why I'm interested in the G16 is that the RX100 is too expensive and I love the G15 just wish it had a larger sensor. I'm hoping that the G16 is exactly that.. Any info would be great. Thanks.

There's already a G1X.  I don't think G16 will introduce a bigger sensor.
