Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Still waiting for high MP canon while Nikon is coming out with new 800« on: May 31, 2014, 02:03:19 PM »
You are probably right, but then again there are many people like me who don't really care about "high-ISO" performance and are instead always griping about the lack of 50 ASA and ... ... 25 ASA equivalent. Plus it now seems that even 100 ASA/ISO is biting the dust.
All I can say is I don't play too much at either extreme.
I don't look for high ISO performance, but it is really nice to not need a flash and still have the image come out nice.
I don't get the whole low ISO thing, either. Not saying that it isn't important, but if Canon isn't delivering the product that fits that niche then someone else will.
From what I remember of 35mm film photography, pretty much any digital body I have tried since (and including) the 5DII beats my memories. And, I never had a darkroom- digital allows me to do so much more than just getting 4x6 prints developed. Suffice it to say that I am pretty happy with what some call "mediocre" offerings from Canon. I get many compliments on mediocre shots with said mediocre equipment too
It would be nice to try one of those Sony's with an adapter, but that is a niche purchase for my uses. Maybe I'll rent one to see what the hubbub is about. I should have picked up one of those DP3 Sigmas when they went on sale... but the lack of a viewfinder really put a damper on things.
