For my type of photography, I enjoy doing landscapes, macro (although I use an extension tube for budget reasons), portraits (still subjects mostly... and my pet dogs!), and general travel photography.
POST-THE-SHOT, POST-THE-SHOT, POST-THE-SHOT!+1
Back in the old film days, these two Grant Masters used 8x10 films to create the absolute best images (both in terms of IQ & creativity) in the field of Landscape (Ansel Adam) and Fashion & Portrait (Richard Avedon) respectively ... and I am sure their works will always remain in the books and museums for generations to come!Probably Ansel Adam and Richard Avedon spent little time on web forums, and most of their time shooting or carefully preparing shoots.
I actually do most of my Florida and Georgia area outdoor wedding and landscape shoots from my rooftop now. The IQ is tack-sharp even wide open at 1000mm (w/ 2x converter, obviously) The issue I had, was when the FBI and Homeland security showed up at my house. I was shooting a wedding in downtown Orlando, which is only about 30 miles away, from my roof. The house was surrounded and guns drawn on me. You see, I live near enough to a major airport that the neighbors mistook it's green color and imposing size as some sort of ground to air missile launcher.
Looks like we will continue to see Canon improve their sensors.Are you sure? I keep reading on the web that the world will disappear next December.
Nikon still has a lead but in dynamic range but the gap is closing.
The world may not be coming to an end after all.
Did u ever check the 39 AF points urself? Imho its totally marketing bullshit since they are all cramped up in the middle of the viewfinder! It sounds great "wow 39" but in real its not that cool...
Imho its no advantage over the 6D.
Hadn't bothered to check the af layout yet, thanks for posting, and yeah that doesn't look very good. Do you know how the actual spread compares to the 5d2?
1 dead pixel out of 24,300,000..... how awful. I wonder when the last time was that someone looked at a picture and saw a dead pixel.
Don't sweat it. Dead pixels are common.
Why? The lenses. First of all, the 6D kit with the 24-105 f/4 looks like a good deal, and the 24-105 seems like an ideal lens for walking around with a FF body. As far as I know, Nikon has no lens that really competes with the 24-105. The other main lens that I see myself getting is the 70-200 f/4 IS, which is great for someone only semi-serious like me to walk around with
