Third Party Manufacturers / Re: cheap lowlight 30-35mm for APS-C
« on: June 12, 2013, 03:09:45 PM »
The new Sigma 30.
Get the dock too for tweaking AF.
At 1.4, you're gonna need it.
And when you get that AF right, you'll love the pics you can get.

My concern for the new lenses are size and weight.
More pancake lenses!

EOS Bodies / Re: New AF Technology Coming in July? [CR1]

A new AF standard for Rebels with 11-25 AF points (will show up first in 70D, and then dumbed down in 750D/SL2)

Nope ... because that will cut into the user-base of the 7D ... Canon has decidedly placed each camera into a separate category and anything above 11 AF-points on APS-C will make it sufficient for "7D-applications" ... and we don't want birders using 800D's, now do we?

Well, if only 5-9 of the 15 (lets say 15) are cross type, that would still keep it out of 7D area.
750D/SL2 then starts out with 5/1 cross type?

And when 7D2 turns up with 41 all cross type AF sensors, the slow migration towards 15 all cross type AF points can commence in the Rebel line...

My guesses:

  • A better AF system for mirrorless, something like Nikon 1? (could be used with mirror up too)
  • A 1DX/5D3 AF version for APS-C, will turn up in 7D2 (a good way to keep interest up, even if it is late 2013 or 2014)
  • A new AF standard for Rebels with 11-25 AF points (will show up first in 70D, and then dumbed down in 750D/SL2)

Lenses / EF (and EF-S) lenses with the best microcontrast?
« on: May 24, 2013, 06:02:14 AM »
So, since I've heard this term "microcontrast" now for a while, I thought I'd start a thread comparing and describing the EF mount lenses (Canon or 3rd party) with the best microcontrast.

As I understand it, this characteristic of a lens is essential for birders and pixel-peepers?

Please, educate me and others on the forum on this topic. :)

I have never owned one of the EOS bodies with swivel screen, but I HAVE dropped a Powershot A95 and broken off the screen, so I do know it IS possible to do. And since I treat my gear a bit rough, I prefer metal body and fixed screen.

I would say this one almost matches the longing for 7D2. Everyone is hoping for an upgrade of the 60D as soon as possible. On top of the wish-list is a new sensor (duh). But the real question is body design. Will it be a 60D type or a 7D type of body? Articulating screen or not? Focused on video or stills? Metal body or plastic?

Some things I expect:
Larger body than the Rebels.
Better build quality (even if plastic)
Shoulder display
Joystick (one thing I don't like about 6D)
Touch screen (regardless of if fixed or swivel)
AFMA returns (hopefully wide-tele)
Wifi+GPS (Canon's second EOS to include this)
Built in flash (for remote control? Maybe not if wifi)
Surface design as 100D (carbon fibre look)

And I hope for a 7D type of body again.

Well, the surprise might be, that the price tag is even higher than ever before ... my two cents  8)
Pedro, that wouldn't be a surprise. A surprise would be if it was lower! :)

Surprise!

Releasing a new version of 6D with built-in flash (to lure in APS-C customers) called "6Df".

Hmm, I saw this lens on ebay: http://www.canon.com/camera-museum/camera/lens/ef/data/standard_zoom/ef_35~135_4~56_usm.html

I think this range would be awesome for indoor sports/martial arts (like taekwondo) on a APS-C camera.
Can one hope for an EF-S 35-135 f2.8-4 USM?

I would buy it in an instant.

28-135?

18-135?

http://www.canon.co.uk/For_Home/Product_Finder/Cameras/EF_Lenses/Standard_Zoom/EF-S_18_135mm_f_3.5_5.6_IS_STM/

They are too slow for martial arts indoors. A constant 2.8 would be preferred, but I'll take a 2.8-4 for compactness (and price). 5.6 indoors when you want 1/500th of a second shutter speed or faster? Crazy ISO/noise. Maybe the 28-135 on the 6D would work, but then it would be too short.

Sounds like a good plan. A 17-40 or 16-35 would probably also see some action. The streets in Old Town are NARROW (I think the narrowest one is 90 cm wide).

Great pics btw.

if you have sources to tell you that there are prototypes.

why donĀ“t they tell you at least if it is a push-pull design or not?

or is a push-pull design tested and a "normal" design?
I thought it was certain that it was NOT a push-pull? All rumors I heard point to twist-zoom, but I could ofc be mistaken.

I am however NOT considering this if it IS push-pull. From Canon's pov, they could also keep selling the old one, if the new one has twist-zoom. Some people prefer push-pull. Some don't.
