EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon Announces the Canon EOS 6D DSLR

Okay, so nonstop complaining aside, here's a thought:
Wouldn't it have made sense to release an "L" version of an STM lens with this?

Oh thank goodness we got some Nikon posts on the first page.  I guess that guy from SoHo was sleeping, but you guys got our back!

I'm gonna go sell all my gear and switch to Nikon now.

So has anyone CONFIRMED that there is no MFA or are we just playing chicken little?

I think it's time craig updates the main post with a BUSTED note.

Lots of people pointing out wifi isn't going to happen, GPS probably the same.  As I mentioned, SD makes NO sense placed between a 5D and 7D.

Most people are just jumping in new here to fan the Nikon fervor or bemoan some of the other made-up specs . . .

It's just another slow news day now that Apple doesn't have a top secret ipad fourteen to stir up BS about.

I'd be more interested in a firmer date than firm specs at this point, considering we'd know how reliable the spec lists are.

Honestly, I hope they include a pop-up flash like the 7D as well, but it wouldn't be a deal breaker.

They couldn't (well, wouldn't) make a xD series that's smaller than the 7D.

I'm not going to get too lathered up about any specs either until CR gives it a CR2 or CR3.  I highly doubt SD will happen since the 7D uses CF like the 5D . . . I think an articulating screen (which I like because I can protect the screen AND turn it off by manually flipping it inside) is as likely if SD makes it into the camera.

I'm gonna call this myth busted :D

If these are the same caliber as the 24-70, we may very well have an 'affordable' L alternative provider on our hands.

I've gotta start selling some equipment to get the wife off my back before the next big wave of purchases  ;D

But, the D600 is like a bazillion dollars more, and, like NIKON.

Cue the guy from that 80's song from old SoHo.

487
Wow, $2,100 and Nikon doesn't even give you a full metal body?  I hope Canon isn't so cheap with the magnesium alloy.  You can get the 7D for $1200 and the body is a tank.  Hopefully the 6D will be the same. :-\

7D, built like a tank, but rebel-like IQ.  Even 650D is better.  :(

As long as there are people who think a 4 year old 5D Mark II is just as good as a brand new D600, Canon has NOTHING to worry about...

But they do, actually their worry is that the 5d2 is just too good to make an easy profit with a "real" successor 6d - either it'll be too expensive to people will still get a 5d3 or 5d2 as long as possible, or it'll be too inexpensive cutting profits.

I'm pretty sure he was being sarcastic . . . implying that those that look at actual images and performance are mindless automatons, unlike people that buy the newest thing with 3 more pixels :)

489
Okay, so where's that "it's gonna be $1500, canon's gonna poop their pants" guy now?

So, we've got a camera that's $300 more than and basically a 'single step up' from the 4 year old canon.  I'll pass.

Seriously, 6D could simply be what was posted: 7D AF, digic V+ FF and sell for $2500 without issue. 

Boy, I'm glad we were prepared with thread-upon-thread about how this camera was going to put Canon out of business  ::)

Enjoy your onion rind bokeh with the Tamron.

Well, the Canon mk2 has it too (but to a lesser extent), ye know? But don't let get facts in the way.


I think you're spot-on here; I think the *real* news is that the Tamron is so dang sharp.

Anyone with a hair of faith (maybe gullibility) could have believed the part about the Canon II being the sharpest, since that's pretty much what they said.  Yes, yes, we shouldn't blindly believe it, but now that we have confirmation, it's sort of obvious :)

Honestly, I think the Tamron is going to be an excellent candidate for the "only own one lens" crowd, even with it's price.

I, also, am in love with this lens.  I actually started using my monopod with a lens ring and this (after having the monopod over a year and not really using it all that much.

My Two favorite configurations are:
FF straight on body
Crop w/ 1.4x teleconverter

This is really one of those lenses that (after you learned the basics), really gives you a lot of confidence from what you get from it.

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: Canon 5D Mark II vs Nikon D600

"Nikon is making there move soon with the d600"

So we've heard, repeatedly, exactly like the first post, in several other threads.  How about we stop with this crap until we have a firm (or at least firmer) speculated date?

"Canon certainly won't be making their small FF dslr anytime soon"

This is news to people reading this forum in particular, as Craig gave a [CR1] to soon, quite potentially just to rattle Nikon on release.

A NEW FF going for less than $1800? Why would Nikon do that when don't HAVE to?  A new 5DmkII body can be had for around $1800, so they don't have to price new-tech for under that.  Also, if that is a bottom-line, then MSRP will be higher.  At first I thought $2k would be too much, but seriously, if the MSRP is below that, they're giving away cash they just don't have to.

Seriously, I'd be interested in hearing the specs and price (here on the CANON FORUM) when there's something other than a rumor to talk about . . . but we got our yearly quota for "I'm moving to Nikon" and "Canon is out of touch" posts in early this year, so we're all good.

I have both and I have to say, I don't feel as though I love my 5DmkII as I should.

Reading through some of the points on this thread, I have my own thoughts about FF.

1) "feels like FF" - honestly, I want to say all of the bad things I've seen from lenses is more pronounced in FF (CA, barrel distortion, and vignetting) vs crop.  I've been shooting with my 24-105 on the 5D and can't believe how much more correction is needed for vignetting  -- maybe it's not that where people get the 'feel' from, but that's what I've seen

2) The iso difference on the 5D rocks hard, probably the best thing about it

3) Never seen banding myself

4) Nice shot for the dog, but if you go back and pick up a rebel, you'll be surprised what you can get out of 'lower end' cameras after you've been shooting a while.  I'm still more comfortable with my 60D;  these days, (aside from un-cooperative subjects or bystanders) I can't seem to get a bad shot.

5) Auto-Focus speed seems faster to me on the 60D, but I believe Neuro said at one point that it wasn't any faster than the 5D

Lastly, mk3 vs mk2, you're going to see a at BEST $1k difference in the bodies for some time (best price, I mean) . . . until you've shot on FF for a while, you may not see as much improvement for the price difference.

Personally, I've decided to start selling some gear and moving both bodies up a notch, but I have ALWAYS had a bad case of accessoritis and upgraditis.  I get sick of cars 9 months into them, but I'm working on that.

You both luck out because you're not gulled into joining facebook? :)
