EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 1dx, or d800e?
« on: October 14, 2012, 03:06:45 AM »
As you've said you WILL get the 200L at some point, so why not make that priority one....

then over the next six months as we see where Canon's sensors (and the big MP sensor) are going, have a rethink then...there may be something more 800e-like, that will take your current glass.
(and who knows, if it's in a 1 series body - you'll get all the bells and whistles you're craving now)

.......But the L-series lenses are a cut above (to varying degrees, of course - sure, the 24-105L is well built, but I bet I could smash one to bent metal and powdered plastic and glass with a supertele prime, and still use the supertele).

I would pay good money to see this!
Actually, have you just invented a new sport?

Didn't have my macro lens with me...so this is actually from 70-200 IS II, and cropped.

Normally seen in red...wondered how well it comes across in B/W.

One of the boons of dual card slots on the 5d3 -
From ML's website
"Since the 5D mark III has two card slots, we recommend running Magic Lantern from a small SD card that stays in the camera. All recording can take place on CF cards. The CF cards don’t have to be bootable or prepared in any way, and you can freely swap and format them without problems."
Woot!

Can't wait till full version is good to go. Also great news that they've finally cracked dual digic models, makes the 7d even more useful.

Funniest thread ever!     No wait.....he's serious?!?!?

Well to quote Mo Szyslak:

I have to admit unfortunately that I'm not so outraged as everyone else. (sorry).  :-[
I guess I must be more of the target market than some of you guys...(going from a 7d to FF to get better IQ, not pro, just enjoy shooting)
It's a camera; not one I'll buy now; (heck I probably would go for it if I hadn't already got the 5d3).

11 af....well 99% of the time I just shoot the centre one anyways and recompose. - What we really need to know is are they all double cross type or not. If they're not then yes I agree they've really crippled it just for the sake of it.
GPS, agree with some people; it's not something that bothers me, wouldn't call it a gimmick as such, but not something I'd use.
Touchscreen. Can't see why people are so against these. You can disable it if you want, but otherwise iPhone style pinch to zoom is a great way of manipulating a review screen. I'm more bothered that its not a tilty/swivelly screen, which I could see being handy for interesting compositions..shooting from the floor on a low tripod for example.

In terms of price (considering the wireless),
WFT-E7A (for 5d3) - $780
WFT-E5A (for 7d) - $649
WFT-E6A (for 1DX) - $599
These are just Adorama's current prices, but they're fairly typical. - 6D to have wireless built in. If the $2099 is accurate, then you have to include 5 to 6 hundred dollars for something Canon would have made you buy separately.  (Yes I know people will say - "its a feature I don't want anyway....I should be allowed to choose whether I get wireless", well yes but....stifling development and not giving us new features would mean that we'd all still be on video free stills cameras without review screens on the back. Heck if it had still been an opt in rather than something everyone expected we'd maybe all be back in Manual focus territory).

Feel free to disagree, was just my initial thoughts...but I really don't see it as that far off where it should be, (specs/price/market aimed at).

Lenses / Re: If you can have ONLY 3 lenses, what would they...???
« on: September 16, 2012, 05:03:33 PM »
16-35L
50 1.2L
70 - 200 II IS


but would REALLY miss a macro lens   ;)

As someone who's just got a 5mk3 in addition to my 7, I have to agree with the other guys...They complement each other really well.
I'm now doing portrait sessions with 70-200 2.8ISII on the 5d3, and an aging 20-35 2.8L (non USM forebear of the 16-35) on the 7D. (50 1.4 in a pocket for if really shallow dof is called for).

I'd be tempted to sell the 10-22 and go for a UWA that works on the 5, - if you're new to Full Frame, the IQ difference is staggering. 24L may be an option for you, not quite so wide as either of the zooms....but it gives you another shallow dof option.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7D to 5D III upgrade..worth it?
« on: September 11, 2012, 06:11:04 PM »
Like a few people by the look of it; I've just gone 7 to 5d3, it should be arriving any time over the next few days.
I'll be using both bodies with a black rapid dual strap and a 70-200 is ii on one of them. (thinking I can cancel my gym membership then  :o )
