Thanks Jon, I think you're right on Lincoln's.  I don't have more views unfortunately.


I agree on Lincoln's Sparrow.  The buffy chest and mustache did it for me.

Great shots.

I wonder if this will be the introduction of DPAF to p/s cameras?

Would be nice, but I seriously doubt it.

My biggest hopes for this camera are:

  • Dramatically improved EVF optics.  The SX50 optics have a major field curvature issue.
  • The lens (including IS) is at least as good as that in the SX50 (which is pretty good).
  • The video performance gets a good upgrade (better quality, 60p FHD available).

I am amazed at how good the SX-50 is, considering what it does..... Give it a better EVF and make the buttons less sensitive (or better yet, a lockout switch) and you would have a huge lead in the superzoom market.

I agree on a better and faster EVF.  The greater reach will make it quite a challenge I think for just getting equal quality.  Looking forward to the final specs.

Excellent job scyrene.  They are very difficult and fast.  If you can get them when they head into the wind and control your lens you have the greatest chance for success IME.

If I could only keep 1 piece of gear, it would be the SX-50.

+1,000,000 and then some.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Loss of viewfinder flash of red light

I was shooting our local 4th of July arade which went through dusk I realized that the [lame]viewfinder illumination wasn't working in my 5DMk3

The choice to make a black-box focus-target indicator on the focus screen was throwing me big time in the ever-darker street. Worse, I was getting NO flash of red and a sense of which target was activated. The first thing I can't do anything about. The second: I know the 7D people pt up with it. Had never had or handled one, ever.

Has anyone had their "viewfinder illumination" die? Looks like a trip to Irvine.

Boy I hope they put in a different system on the 5D-whatever-is-past-Mk3.

I have a 7D and have set it so I get the red flash.  You must have changed one of your settings.  Time to consult your manual as stated by PicaPica.

It should have a crop factor of 1.5, to match Nikon, etc.

Why should it match Nikon?

It will not be a mark 2 of the original 7D if it wasn't an APS-C sensor.

This, it will be an APS-C sensor.   I am looking forward to see what the new technology will be along with the specs.
