i use the 5d3 its a very good camera but i do get jealous of sony's sensor when i see how it can bring up the shadows compared to the 5d3 its impressive as right now if i tried that it brings some very noise lines. So when i do need more dr i just have to do some HDR usually just mask out the sky and replace it with a proper exposed sky nothing stops me from getting the same result just would be easier. Hopefully Canon makes 5d4 as good or better then sony's sensor.

My copy just came in. It's chunky compared to the 17-40.

i was expecting it to be smaller then the 17-40 f4, IS takes up a lot of space or what?

damn you guys just gave me GAS, here comes a 16-35mm F4 :)   

i like doing landscapes so far i have been using the 24-105mm will i like this lens? is the IQ going to be noticeably better?

I think if you're happy with 24mm, it won't.  You'll only buy this lens if you want something wider than 24mm.

thanks i just looked in lightroom most of my landscapes are shot at 24mm maybe i could of used something wider i hope i like it but i see it looks very sharp compared to the wide end of the 24-105mm. When i was on the 550d with 24-105 it look a lot sharper dont know why so did the 10-22mm that i used before i got the 5d3.

I wish i could see what Canon has in R&D ,i really think they have something very advanced but they want to milk small updates on each camera release at one point they will run out of what to update and finally give us a intervalometer in camera :)

i just toss mine in the backpack i thought this is one of the reasons they are build with that magnesium alloy body. When i had the 550d then i was more careful that thing felt very weak all plastic.

Agree -- the 5D3 body will 95% likely be fine, but there are other features to consider.  I've had a lot of lens caps fall off when I just throw it in a bag with other contents, once resulting in a scratched filter (thankfully not the lens' front element).   Also, multipurpose bags like backpacks and messenger bags often carry 'other' cargo that can leave junk, crumbs, dirt, dust, etc. which can scratch an LCD or do a number on the grippy bits.

For me, I don't like loose items clawing at any part of the camera when it's in a bag, so I usually use the previously linked Tenba photo insert.  I'm not arguing my way is better -- it's entirely personal preference. 

However, when I'm in a hurry or if I need a mixed payload of camera + 'other' in the bag (clothes, work items, pens, etc.), I sometimes just wrap the 5D3 + lens with a winter hat and call it good.  I've had zero issues with that thus far, but I do admit I baby the bag a bit more in that arrangement.

ahh i miss read the original post, i use a camera backpack :) but when i don't i usually have some sort of clothes inside and i use that to wrap the camera so the screen or top lcd don't get scratched.

what's the buffer like? imagine you can do 24fps at 39MP and turn that into some high resolution video.

Wonder if we'll see a product advisory from Canon with the white rubber turning black...

more like these where black and Canon just selling them as white cameras :).

EOS Bodies / Re: What's Next from Canon?

Apple have thousands of patents awarded each year (the system in the US is different to Europe where it is harder to get a unique patent) but that still didnt stop the stock market marking Apple down recently. Sony also have  thousands of patents every year likely as many as Canon.

Apple had less than 2,000 US patents issued in 2013, around 1,200 in 2012, and just over 800 in 2011.  Apple has ~7700 patents total.  Canon has averaged over 2,000 patents per year for the past 15 years (meaning they've had more patents granted in the past 4 years than Apple has had since the Steves founded the company). Canon has been in the top 5 worldwide for issued US patents each year for >20 years.  In other words, they have a long history of innovation.

Apple is trading recently much closer to its 52-week high than to its 52-week low.

Regardless, the point is that you seem to be implying that Canon is not innovating, and that's simply not the case.

It seems like they are innovating in AF and some other stuff but what everyone means is they want Canon with a better sensor then Sony's. I am sure Canon has something its just how long does it take to make and are they still working on it? even the high MP canon is still not out to compete with Nikon so i am sure they have something and waiting for the right time to release it. I am perfectly happy with my 5d iii but if i had the chance to get something better then Sonys sensor or even close to the same i would want it but that's eventually going to be on Canons system.

Could Canon just be milking out the profits on the current sensor tech? and just waiting until the last moment to release there new sensors?
