Third Party Manufacturers / Re: 6D Need To Change Something..

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?

I'm willing to take care of the disposal of the tested lenses!  ;)

Anyway, excellent news!  :D

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.

If you have 24,300,000 pixels, the chances of a dead pixel are about 20% higher than if you have just 20,400,000, ceteris paribus::)   ::)   ::)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon 5Dc as an entry for FF? yay or nay?

It was my first and is so far my only DSLR, bought (used) 2 years ago.
I must admit I sometimes miss the much better rear LCD, Live view, sensor-shaker, the wider ISO range and... not many other features.
For the price of a current 600d / T3i, i think it is still a good value for money.

What if D stood for Desperate and M for Miserable?  :o   :o   :o

3D's price must be the average value between 1D(x) and 5D.
2 * 3D = 1D + 5D
We can similarly deduct the price for the next 4D (the average value between 3D and 5D) etc.

EOS Bodies / Re: Why I'm not jumping to Nikon

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

Lenses! The most important part of the gear!

Never say never, but I think that I will not leave Canon unless the competitor deliver a Nikkor 70-200 F/4 "VR".
I bought a used 5D classic for less than 1000 Eur, and I hope it will last until a used 5D3 will cost more or less the same amount (in four years maybe?).
If my 5Dc crashes tomorros, I think I'll buy a used 5d2. Or a Nikon body, provided I can put my EF 70-200 F/4 L IS in its mount. I do like its sharpness, colors etc (most canon-users know what I mean).

I wonder why cigarette producers have to state that nicotine gives you dependence, whereas I didn't read  the same WARNING on the box of the EF 70-200 F/4 IS when I bought it.

P.S. You can fit a Nikkor lens on a Canon body, but not vice versa.

EOS Bodies / Re: DxOMark Sensor Performance: Nikon vs. Canon
« on: September 19, 2012, 01:16:53 PM »
DxOMark who? The guys (actually the only guys on earth) who state that EF 70-200 F4 IS L is better than EF 70-200 F2.8 IS L II?

I don't think Canon's CEO will resign, even if he reads this thread.
Being a Japanese, he'll probably make hara-kiri instead.  :o  :o  :o

Canon General / Re: Loving Canon right now.

Does anyone know if the folks at nikon rumors hate nikon so much as people hate canon here?
For what i've seen and heard they dont.


If we all were Nikonians, every single day we would wake up and cry "Oh, no! Another night passed, and no (sharp) Nikkor 70-200 F/4 VR has been announced!" and then protest on all the forums on the web.

Canon's DSLR Marketing guys should have been fired IF they had created an EOS 6D so interesting to kill 5D3's sales.

It seems that every potential customer basically wanted a 5D3 with a new label (6D) at a (1000 dollar / eur) price lower than the 5D3.
It seems that nobody thought that such a 6D with 5D3 specifications would have killed the 5D3.

Could Canon marketing limit the FF sensor performance (low light, resolution) of the 6D in order to keep the 5D3 alive? Maybe. But they decided to limit mainly its autofocus performance (and CF and level and FPS and other).

If YOU were in charge of Canon Marketing / R&D, and YOU had been asked to
- deliver a FF which costed 1000 dollar / eur less than the 5D3, AND
- avoid to kill 5D3 sales,

what would YOU have done?

On the other side, Nikon guys compare the (street) price of the d800 and the (announcement) price of the d600, and many of them say that the difference (400-500 dollar / eur) is too little.
If you are willing to spend more than 2K for a durable piece of gear, buying "just" the d600 could be a wrong choice.
This is a(potential) kind of commercial fail that Canon avoided.

So, to me, Canon isn't offering as good or as exciting of products as Nikon is at this point..... add to this a $2300 new 24-70(the lens I want the most) and i'm overall unhappy with my choices in Canon. I'm buying a D600 and 24-70 2.8 for around 3800 dollars, instead of a 5DIII(I wouldn't consider the 6D) and 24-70 II for $5200.

Your comparison does not convince me.
5200$ is (a lot) more than 3800$, but I expect that Canon's 24-70 outperforms Nikon's one (and I think that, in many aspects, Canon's 5D3 is better than Nikon's D600).

EOS Bodies / Re: Enough Full Frame Talk: Where are the 7D II Rumors?
« on: September 18, 2012, 05:46:59 AM »
So, trying to be realistic here: what features do you expect/hope to see in the 7D?

My list is short: Less noise at ISO 1600-6400; an even better autofocus; a little more weatherproofing; CF Card slot (don't care if they also include an SD, but I wants my CF); and that ability to control the camera through your smartphone using WiFi.

What makes your short list?

Everything on your list plus more Dynamic Range, and I'd be good!

So few upgrades on the current 7D?

I'm afraid the guys at dpreview will write again "this is not a WOW! camera".

EOS Bodies / Re: 6D Review
« on: September 17, 2012, 01:44:17 PM »
This is really suspect.  There are parts of the review that he seems to have forgotten to change the wording from 5D mkiii to 6D.  It seems that much of this review was cut and pasted from his first impressions with the 5d mkiii.  Also, I remember very similar images from the hibachi grill with his kids (same angle and everything).  He either really likes going to the hibachi (I don't know anyone who goes ore than once a year), or there is something very fishy going on here....

Part of the 6D review is KR's 5DIII review.


It's just a Work In Progress (at a certain point, the words "UNDER CONSTRUCTION - read no further" appear.

EOS Bodies / Re: Describe the 6D in one word...
« on: September 17, 2012, 04:24:51 AM »

 I am not switching to Nikon, not as long as I can't put a 70-200 F/4 IS on a Nikon mount...

The Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 OS HSM costs the same and it's as great. Plus, you have a fully usable f/2.8, if you can live with the extra weight. AF works better on Nikon cameras than it does on Canon, if that was your concern.

It is also a matter of weight, sharpness... but let's stick to the 6D topic.

Bad and good news from DPReview:

Disappointingly the layout doesn't offer any expanded coverage compared to the 9-point system on the EOS 5D Mark II - the additional points are squeezed-in to a similar diamond layout. Only the center point is cross-type, too; but Canon does say the system will work in vanishingly low light (-3 EV). Overall though, this appears to be the 6D's weakest point in terms of specification.

The EOS 6D does, however offer the same AF microadjust as the 5D Mark III. Adjustments can be made separately for the wide and telephoto ends of zoom lenses, and can also be made per serial-numbered lens (should you have two copies of the same lens that require differing amounts of adjustment).

I lost part of my interest in the 6D.
