EOS Bodies / Re: Big Announcements Coming Next Week [CR3]
« on: January 27, 2015, 05:42:08 AM »
That's a lot of new and diverse stuff.  Something for everybody!  :D

Guessing not for me.

I'm interested in a dual-pixel (and updated) version of the 5DIII or 6D, and this doesn't sound like it (maybe, though - 5DIV?).  I'm not remotely interested in a $3,000 11-24 or an any-price M3 or 750D.

I can't justify spending as much as 3K for a new body, but 6DII could be right for me.
The good news is that:
- 5DIII was announced on 2 March 2012
- 6D was announced on 12 September 2012
So maybe we can expect to see a new set of Canon's Full Frame in six months, including 6D.
PS 1DX was announced on 18 October 2011, but that's another story.

Maybe the future "high MP" full frame will deliver 61MegaPixel...

Reviews / Re: Review - Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG Art
« on: January 21, 2015, 06:02:58 AM »
what this post failed to mention is there is no other auto-focusing 50mm lens that even comes close to the overall quality of this lens. and the canon 1.4 and 1.2 both have their own focusing issues fyi.
People who got a got copy immediately fell in love with this lens. Particularly myself I used all Canon 50mm lenses and I was never satified because of IQ, CA, AF or focus shift.
Also, never confortable with the 50mm focal lenght but, still waiting for Canon's response to Sigma.
After Sigma's 35mm F/1.4 Art, Canon released its 35mm F/2.0 IS.
About 50mm focal length, we just read rumors about a new 50mm F/1.8 or F/2.0 IS. Will it be the new unicorn?

Pros of the IS L:
- IS
- 9 rounded aperture blades vs 8 not rounded (better bokeh)
- weather sealing
- hood and bag included
Pros of the non-IS
- 58mm filter vs. 67mm
- price
- (slightly) lighter

"It measures 3 feet long, weighs 36 pounds, and cost $60,000 when it was released back in 1993..."

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 6D Mark II to Move Upmarket? [CR1]
« on: January 12, 2015, 06:06:53 AM »
Okay, so how about this.  Canon likes to migrate things down (i.e. 7D AF to 70D).

How about 6DII = 5DIII focusing system and a dual-pixel version of the 6D sensor all in basically the same body as the 70D (touch screen, flip screen, popup flash, etc.) with an improved version of the 6D mirror box for slightly faster frame rates.

A 6D2 with a "70D body" and 5D3 autofocus?
It makes sense: someone says that the first 6D was a 60D body (except articulating LCD) with basically a 5D2 autofocus, so the new 6D could inherit the body from the new 60D (=70D) and the AF from the new 5D2 (=5D3). Plus, the 6D IQ or slightly better.
Too good to be true, for a non-professional user like me? Too similar to the present 5D3?
I think that a 70D AF (19 cross-points) would be enough for photographers like me: I managed to survive the 5Dc and even the EOS M's AF systems  ;) .
Let's hope that Canon makes room for that by putting in their 5D4 (and 1Dx2) an AF furtherly improved (better than 7D2).
If Canon doesn't deliver a current AF module on the 6D2... well, I'll have to stick with my 5D classic until the price of a used 5D3 gets close to 1000 Eur.

Let's wait for the unbiased  ::)  and indispensable DXO test  ;D .

Judging from Amazon.com, it's the best seller among full frame DSLR.
Amazon.de confirms, while at Amazon.jp and Amazon.co.uk the best seller FF is still the Canon 6D.

Let's hope that this inspires Canon.

EOS Bodies / Re: Sony Sensors Coming to Canon DSLRs? [CR1]
« on: December 16, 2014, 05:11:15 AM »
I would imagine joint ventures on something as expensive as sensor manufacturing would help lower costs for companies and perhaps customers as well. It’s definitely possible, but I wouldn’t write it in stone yet.  If Canon does the manufacturing of the sensor can they put their own technology into a Sony sensor, such as Dual Pixel AF?

In other industries (cars etc.) it is frequent to see exchanges of know-how.
Maybe it could be possible for Canon to supply DPAF technology and for Sony to supply DR in the same sensor.  :o
BTW, 46 Mpx is exactly what I need to replace my 5d classic: shooting in S-RAW, I expect to get excellent noise-free 11.5 Mpx pictures. ;D

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Co-worker dumps $5k on Nikon
« on: December 09, 2014, 08:23:13 AM »
People here talk about not knowing anyone that buys Nikon and how Nikon is always making a loss and how Nikon cameras don't rate as well as Canon on Amazon, etc ...

Co-worker is planning their holiday and wanted the best camera to take on holiday and went with a D810 plus lenses.

My input into the buying decision? Didn't know that she was shopping until she mentioned what she'd bought.

Do they shoot sports? No
Do they shoot birds? No
What photographs will he take? Typical tourist pics.

When asked why she wanted the Nikon D810 her answer was simple: "I just want the best IQ."

No, I'm not making it up.

(Reposted because someone decided to be pedantic, so I've corrected for their pedantry.)

I would go with Fuji X series + native lenses.

A good point and shoot (or a Nikon D3xxx) would have been more than enough. And if you save 4,500$, you can find other ways of spending them during the holiday.

Thought it may be the right time to resurrect this old thread.

When I look at the latest DSLR best seller list on Amazon USA recently, I am shocked that Canon is taking a very severe beating in sales. This has been going on for several weeks now (from about Nov 2014 till early Dec 2014).

Never expected this.

The unending gripes on the internet forum are showing their influences now...

For what it's worth, Amazon.it:
1. Nikon D3300 + 18-55 VR
2. Canon 1200D + 18-55 IS
3. Canon 700D (T5i) + 18-55 IS STM
4. Nikon D3200 + 18-105 VR
5. Canon 100D (SL1) + 18-55 IS STM
6. Nikon D3300 + 18-105 VR
7. Nikon D800  :o
8. Canon 70D
9. Canon 600D (T3i) + 18-55 IS
10. Canon 1200D + 18-55 DC
I'm sure that these figures reflect the Black Friday effects (it included D800 and D3200, if I remember well) and by the Winter Cashback.
In January we will be able to see unbiased sales.

White-Tailed Deer 7dmkii by Corey Hayes, on Flickr

Great camera, great pictures!  :) [size=78%] [/size]
May I ask an Off Topic question?

The paws of the deer have been cropped. I'm sure I won't be able to sleep anymore until someone tells me whether "standard cropping rules" for animals' bodies exist or not.


Thanks in advance.
