Third Party Manufacturers / Re: NEW TOY :)
« on: September 29, 2013, 04:02:07 PM »
Enjoy, I've found it best if you drive all by yourself... auto anything is not much to my liking. AF is ok but better/quicker with Manual. Won't ever replace my 5D3's/1DX but when I head out with a minimalist mind set... it's the only camera I take. Leaf shutters rock, at f/2.0 you can trigger up to 1/1000 allowing you to do things you could never do with any of the Canons. As a strobist, this opens up tremendous opportunities. BTW... tape a 1/4 CTO to the onboard flash and it helps it play nicer with natural light.

The Xpro1 is a good camera but Fuji dialed in the button layout much better with the X100S, if/when the Xpro2 comes out I will be all over it. Hopefully it has phase contrast AF and FF, then it's a dream come true.

After playing with X100s for 3hrs today....I'm officially in LOVE with Fuji. Mark my word if rumor Xpro2 is FF with retro design( like x100s), I will sell some of my Canon gear and will jump on Fuji wagon ;)

Will start with 14 or 16mm and 85mm

Hahaha what did we all tell you... The x100s is an absolute joy to use isn't it! And it's so darn pretty! Can't wait to see what the xe2 specs are, rumored to be announced in oct.

Grats!
Do a comparison with the RX1 when you get a chance? :)
What lens and camera did you use for the photos of the x100s?

33
Just get one :) I did, and it is honestly the most "fun" camera I've used.. The design and feel of it just makes it a joy to use, plus there's always something special about looking through a viewfinder to frame, and the IQ is super.. Colour is punchy, skin tones are amazing! And the little flash is great for fill light, especially in day light.. The one draw back though is the AF, for static it's fine but for moving objects it's a bit of a challenge, wish it had the AF of Olympus cameras..

Sell it all, get the 24-70 ii, sigma 35 and canon 135 and you're set.. If you love shallow DOF you'll love the 135..
Not sure how much you'll end up using the sigma after you get the 24-70 ii though..

Lenses / Re: Canon 24-105mm f/4 IS : Seller's remorse?
« on: August 23, 2013, 05:51:19 PM »
If its gathering dust then sell it, what makes you think time will change your opinion? The 24-70ii is a beast compared to the 24-105.
The 24-105 was great because its a 'good' all rounder lens at a cheap kit price.
I've sold mine after getting the 24-70ii also, don't miss it at all unless you're planning to shoot video.

Mirrorless doesn't always mean interchangeable lenses.


It does to most people, certainly in this context.

"Mirrorless" was a description coined for interchangeable-lens digital cameras that used an electronic viewfinder instead of a traditional reflex-type viewfinder. 

If not, then we've had "mirrorless" cameras since Fox-Talbot...

There are both mirrorless system cameras and mirrorless interchangeable lens system cameras.
The RX1 is considered a mirrorless system camera, the Fuji X100/s is considered a mirrorless system camera.
And in the "context" of the original post, it wasn't stated that he wanted an interchangeable system.

You just want DR? No other factors?
Then Sony's rx1 is best mirrorless with highest DR, probably better than the 5d mkiii as well.
Yes, only DR. I got the rest covered with my 5D3.
Improved DR at base ISO is the one important thing Canon has failed to deliver since 2008.

The RX1 is great, but it has a fixed lens that is too long for my work.

Since the RX1's lens is too long for your work, then no, you're not just interested in DR

Exactly, you just contradicted yourself Ricku. It may help if you listed what else you were looking for in the camera, eg a wider angle lens.
Well not really. When I said that I was looking for a mirrorless with good DR, I meant a camera with interchangable lens system. I thought that was kinda obvious. :) I mean, theres probably zero landscape shooters who would be satisfied with a fixed lens.

But back to topic.

"But which of the latest mirrorless camera systems offers the highest DR?"
- "You just want DR? No other factors?"
"Yes, only DR."

Mirrorless doesn't always mean interchangeable lenses.

And who knows, maybe you could've been a 35mm fov landscape photographer, that's why I asked if there were any other factors you were after.
Sort've like when people say "HAI GAIZ what's the BEST camera I can get".. without stating what they shoot, what features they're after, their budget, etc.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Decisions decisions...
« on: August 07, 2013, 05:22:29 AM »
Well ask yourself what you want from the 1dx that the 5d can't give you.
Don't worry too much about the glass vs body debate, buy for what you want today, at present.
Plus the 1dx is an amazing camera, it'll have many years left before you feel you've outgrown it, surely.

Also note all the advantages of the 1dx over the 5d, including better iso performance.
Would buying the new lens have more pros than all the features of the new body ?

Did a feeding tour a local zoo, was good fun; here's a photo of a tiger up close, not cropped, I was holding the camera in one hand and the tongs in the other, trying to get the shot and not lose any fingers.
