EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Announces the EOS T5i
« on: March 21, 2013, 02:57:41 PM »
MFA? No, never on a rebel, we've established that.

Meanwhile Nikon does do it on their "Rebel".

And meanwhile again, Canon actually pulls the feature from the xxD line...

So sorry if it agitates you that I remind them of how stupid their idea is...

You should switch to Nikon and only get only 1 MFA number for $2700 ;)

Are the T4i and T5i bodies exactly the same??

It looks like the SL1 might be positioned to take over the Rebel line.  If the SL1 sells well, I wouldn't be surprised if all future Rebels are sized like the SL1.

+1.....Clearly, canon is loossing in mirrorless market, therefore, they are forced to release small size DSRL. Both Sony and Fuji will cont to take BIGGER bite in this market. I started with Canon and DO NOT wish to switch to another brands.

My 2cents: Sony will soon releases FF mirrorless with exchangable lenses, and here canon releases :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( As an owner of Sony RX1, I enjoy this camera SO MUCH. Sony did it, where is CANON??????????????????????
Above and beyond what was necessary in to convey your thoughts, you you realize exactly how many extra ones and zeros had to die for this post?  Don't you know there are people in China who don't have internet and you're wasting ones and zeros?  ;D

EOS Bodies / Re: 5DMK2 just dropped from canon website.

More changes in high end coming soon? Or just that time?

Not a chance.  1Dx, 5DmkIII, 6D pretty much cover everything.

I think the only shoe(s) left for them to drop are the 7D and 60D area . . . and I donna thinka wesa gonna like the price. :D

you could buy a 7D . . .

I've heard those things take decent photos occasionally . . .

Wow. There's some genius comments already. Guess someone liked this on twitterbook or something.

MFA? No, never on a rebel, we've established that.
loosing? What are they loosing? Is the wheel loose?

There's a reason for the 'update', I'm fairly certain that no one at Canon expects you to sell a T4i and get this . . . and you all would have complained if there was NO T5i this year . . . oh I'm switching to Nikon :P

For crying out loud, the only thing wrong here to complain about is that they didn't release a different model that was expected to update. They're not going to cram a 1Dx sensor in a tiny, plastic body and sell it for $800, stop expecting it.

Lenses / Re: Do I need the EF 85mm f/1.8 USM?

I love this lens on FF (50mm for Crop). 

I really like primes though, they stop me from overthinking while shooting; I end up with better composure shot-for-shot.

Lenses / Re: Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG Sets New Benchmark for Excellence
« on: March 19, 2013, 08:40:15 AM »
For me, the lack of weather sealing by Sigma is the lost opportunity here.

Yes, I know the Canon 35mm f/1.4 L is not weather-sealed. But the lens is old enough where it makes sense to me to wait and see if they release a weather-sealed update any time soon. If the Sigma had been, I'd not hesitate for a second to pick up a lens with better IQ at a significantly lower cost regardless of what Canon has up its sleeve.

So if Canon comes out with a new version that costs $2000 but with weather sealing, you're ready to pay more than double? Good job.

Canon has a LONG history of making $2000 lenses that don't out-resolve their predecessors by a long shot and only carry weather-sealing.   ;) Good job.

From the original poster's description, if it kept happening to me like that, you can try carrying a copy of the 'photographer's bill of rights' and explain it to them that you meant no offense.

Alternatively, you could carry cards for an anger-management therapist . . . or possibly get business cards from the local police station before going out shooting after explaining that you're getting hassled, ask them to call and have it explained to them.

The world is full of jerks, and full of ways to deal with them.

I always use it, especially since going FF.  Depends how distorted the lens ends up being though.  My 200mm on crop seems to never need it . . .

Lenses / Re: best NON L long lens

We can't tell you without your price range.

EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM is under $800, long-ish, and worth every single cent . . . if you want something under $500, under $300, there are other 'decent' lenses.

Honestly, how the lens focuses matters just as much . . . everyone says the non-L 70-300 is fine, but I hate the one I have.  I paid way too much for it because I wanted something in that range and everything comes out 'just okay'.

Let us know what you're talking about price wise and we can tell you better.

Canon General / Re: Which eye do you shoot with?
« on: March 14, 2013, 09:43:49 AM »
Shoot with left eye . . . literally.

Used to drive my grandfather crazy that I'd pull up a .22 and rock my head across it to aim (right-handed).

Do the same with the camera now that I think about it.

As for 2-eyes vs 1-eye, only shoot with the right one open if I'm trying to track something.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Mark II Information [CR1]
« on: March 07, 2013, 10:15:04 AM »
$3500-$4000 range will be fine IF the 70D ends up being a 'replacement' for the 7D/50D . . . especially price-wise.

I highly suspect that, once these two are announced that rebel owners are going to seriously agonize over what to purchase when the 7D becomes absurdly cheap, vs. new, more expensive cameras. (think new 5DmkII under $1500)

Lenses / Re: Any difference bw used and new 24-105mm lens?
« on: March 05, 2013, 08:24:10 AM »
Personally, I'd pony up for FoCal pro, and check the two for deviance in adjustments at tight and wide, then keep the more accurate one.

So far, my used (from LensRentals) lenses have consistently in need of VERY LITTLE to NO adjustment.  This is just an assumption, but I think they must keep a close eye on testing/sending out their lenses for calibration?

EOS Bodies / Re: What is this camera?
« on: March 02, 2013, 07:31:40 AM »
timkbryant, shame on you! ... such beautiful legs and all you can think of is the camera? ::)

Where is this camera everyone is talking about???

EOS Bodies / Re: New DSLR at the End of March [CR2]
« on: February 28, 2013, 02:13:25 PM »
I have a 60D and a 5DmkII, seriously . . . all we need is digicV, that dual MFA . . . and maybe a touch of better usable high-iso.

For all the moaning about this camera, it's all come from people that didn't buy/use it.

Lenses / Re: Best Value "Normal" Lens for 6d?
« on: February 27, 2013, 11:27:15 AM »
Best value is the kit lens 24-105...

Since the OP is talking about having paid for a 6D, I agree 100%.

On that same lines, I don't think the 50mm 1.8 is really that good for 'best value' since the 1.4 is much better . . .

It's all how you define value.  The 70-200mm 2.8 IS is a GREAT value, when talking about the 200mm L 2.0 IS :D
