EOS Bodies / Re: Describe the 6D in one word...

It's probably a bit early to go moaning. Let's see those ISO, AF and DR in real life when it's out. There might be good news there. In any case, it looks like a nice back-up cam.

I kind of gave up on Canon's DR improvements already, after the 1DsIII, there weren't any improvements at all and it has been 5 years!!!

hmm I might try the 5D3 and test its f8 focusing functions, and 1/180s flash sync? That's an immediate no to me

and -3EV focus sensitivity really now Canon? And you gave us -2EV for 1Dx and 5D3, so we get a disadvantage in the most sophisticated AF module Canon has ever made in pro cameras that cost a fortune. dot dot dot

Hi,
   A full frame 60D without flip screen... ha ha ha  :P

   One feature interest me: center point cross-type and sensitive to -3 EV.

   Since some report that 5D3 able to AF at F8 using 3rd party tele-extender and this 6D is a stop better than 5D3 at center point, so possible to AF at F11? If so, I might be interested to change my 60D to this... I only use the center point, so no problem with only center point is cross type.

   Have a nice day.

I never saw guys with 5D3 focusing at f8, if there is, probably a minority, correct me if I'm wrong though. And what makes you think that sensitive to -3EV means that the 6D will focus at f11? It's more of the AF module like the 1DsIII 1DIV can focus at f8, but 1Dx(it can with 856+kenko according to Author) and 5D3 cannot

hell im not a moron.. i safe a bit more money and buy the 5D MK3.

That's exactly what Canon wants you to do. GPS heading and wifi control on the 6d are nice, though.

I pity the people who will waste their money on this 6D, it's not worth more than 1200$. No one interested in this sort of camera has a +5000$ lens collection, so switching to Nikon will not be painful.

Few people will be thrilled w/ the 6d _at_this_price_ ... but if you shoot center point only the 6d is actually quite nice, and given the limited af coverage on ff the other 10 won't see much use if you don't shoot sports.

It's the same as the the 5d3: Good camera, but ridiculously overpriced.

Sorry, but no, this time is different.

The 5D3 is all in all a capable camera with a few trump cards, and most of all is a pro camera; for a pro switching system is a lot of hassle, not worth saving few hundred bucks.

For the amateur it's all very different though, and 6D is just not up to today's standards. Not to yesterday's either, in all honesty. And being it so, the price is insulting. Price it 1200-1300$ and it will be a different topic.

+1, was thinking about 5D3+400 f2.8 setup but now looking at d3s/d4+200-400f4 instead, Canon's own 200-400mm 1.4x is ridiculously priced

Honestly, all in all, is what I've been saying for months.

D800 has always been a far better camera than the 5D3, which has always been ridiculously overpriced. Nikon could tune down some key features and realize a still very attractive camera at an attractive price point - considering it will only go down in a few months.

The 5D3 was already at the beginning a 5D2.5; it was impossible to tune it down while keeping it attractive. The best thing for Canon would have been to price the 5D3 between the D600 and the D800, basically competing with both of them.

I pity the people who will waste their money on this 6D, it's not worth more than 1200$. No one interested in this sort of camera has a +5000$ lens collection, so switching to Nikon will not be painful.

sadly I am one of these people who can't really jump ships easily... >:( Canon what is wrong with you now !!!

......Might as well just keep my 1dsII if this IS the new camera that will be coming out. Other than high ISO and small-compact relative to the 1DsII, really don't see anything else that is better compared to 1DsII. (At least I will still have 45 AF points with 7 cross-types!!!)

Good thinking, I completly understand you. I want to upgrade to FF but with JUST 1 cross-type point this breaks the deal for me. Ok, dont use 19 point all cross type AF...but put there at LEAST 9 cross-type AF !

...I guess that they even put away AFMA...cripple it down as much as possible...saaaad.

5D Mk II is looking better a better to me :-P

Well one main reason I'm selling 1Ds2 and soon my 7D is to cu back the weight of my gears as they are very heavy currently. But this camera really did not bring my interest up. Unless Canon has greatly improved in their low ISO department and removed the banding when you push the shadows with THIS spec, otherwise it's still a no to me

Gives me some confidence to challenge the price of that 1Dx :(

If this spec list is true, I'm in, getting rid of the 1D4 and the 7D for this new one.
As long as it has what it promised on this spec list :) and by noticeably lower noise, I hope, it will be on par with the current 1D4...
AF...well, if it's as good as the 1D4 or even 1D3, that's good
others I don't really care that much

Lenses / Re: New Wide Angle Zoom Discussion & Opinion
« on: August 15, 2012, 02:57:38 PM »
I would hope that Canon releases a new wide angle lens in which filters are applicable since our landscape photographers need them but surely it better than the 16-35II which sucks at the wide end.

I very recently picked up a used 300mm f2.8 IS and have enjoyed it greatly. Having used the 300mm f4 for a season of Lacrosse, I was very pleased with the results, but the f2.8 is noticeably quicker and sharper. I have only used the lens hand held and while noticeably heavier than the f4, it is not at all difficult to use this way.

I added a used 1.4x II (as some have suggested) and love the resulting 420mm f4. Some contrast is lost, but still very sharp, very fast 400mm.

For what you are describing and what bodies you are using, I feel this is the best choice.

Are you able to handheld the 300 f2.8 IS or does it have to mount on a monopod to get through the entire game? Thanks

PowerShot / Re: PowerShot SX160IS & SX500 IS
« on: August 14, 2012, 12:23:23 PM »
Both of these cameras look kinda ugly..
Anyway, a compact sized camera with a powerful zoom is always tempting!
SX500 IS is a new line?

+1 on the appearance note...

I have never tried the older versions but I heard that they are not much worse. I have them listed as a cheap alternative to both the Ver I and Ver. II IS lenses.
