EOS Bodies / Re: More EOS 7D Replacement Buzz Going Around [CR2]
« on: June 10, 2014, 04:17:22 AM »
Here is my guess/wishlist

price: $2000 body only
10fps with about a 40-50 raw frame buffer
5d3 AF system
full weather sealing
dual pixel AF system from 70D
new sensor different from 70D (one stop better noise performance and one stop better DR)
possibly 4k video and 1080p/60p? One can hope.

I really do think this will get a newer sensor than the 70D (which was just a modified version of the old sensor) because the 7D is very important for Canon and the product cycle is very long so a new sensor ensures the camera will remain competitive 3-4 years from now. The 80D or whatever its called will get the 7D's sensor and then the Rebels and others will get them after.

Anyone agree?

This is funny. A lot of people would get a sh*t load of cr*p & only a few would rather focus on quality. Quality over quantity any day!


5D3 x2
35 mm prime
85 mm prime

That's about it and pretty much 10k spent and a perfect set acquired for general shooting.

Translation: My opinion is right. Your opinion is wrong!

Canon is doomed.

5D iii - $3000
Tamron 24-70 f2.8 - $1300
Tamron 70-200 vc - $1500
Tamron 150-600 - $1100
Sigma 35 1.4 - $900
Tokina 16-28 f2.8 - $700
Tamron 90mm macro f2.8 - $750
Use the rest for ND filters, CF cards and batteries.

ITT: Canon fanboys threatened by Sigma and prematurely attacking Sigma's lenses. How pathetic.

Yes, but you can use pretty much any lens ever made on that camera with adapters so your point is invalid neuroanatomist.

And you can't judge the image quality without seeing it so I suggest you wait until you start Sony bashing like all the fanboys on this site.

Is Canon not announcing anything at NAB? This is embarrassing.

Yay more disappointment from Canon. Maybe I should lower my expectations that Canon doesn't release anything that appeals to me so I won't be disappointed.

They need to make a stills only model so the photographers can stop crying about video features in their precious stills camera and make a hybrid model for those who actually care about video as well as photos.

Lenses / Re: Sigma ART Series: 70-200mm f2.8 possible?

It would be a "sport" lens but probably won't come soon since that market is already very saturated.

Congrats on the very popular review! I wish I could read it haha but its not loading.

EOS Bodies / Re: Is ARRI Canon's Biggest Obstacle in Professional Cinema?
« on: January 20, 2014, 03:22:37 PM »
As to the title of this thread, NO.

Canon's Cinema line is not in the same league as an Arri cam. Most probably the Canons were used for the quick shots where there was a danger of the camera being destroyed. Since the Canons are so small, they can be strapped to cars and other vehicles unlike the huge Arri cameras.

Wonderful news! Let's wait for some time when tests are performed and price drops a bit :) I really expect that Sigma 50 mm 1.4 will be much better than (20 years!!!! old) Canon 50 mm 1.4. I am really disappointed regarding Canon's approach to lenses. Canon's new lenses are superb quality (e.g. 24-70), however, their price tag is too high for average customers. From another side, Sigma & Tamron is able to manufacture and offer to customers PRO line lenses, which are really affordable.

I am really surprised that Canon was sleeping for 20 years and has not updated its 50 mm 1.4. Despite the fact tah Sigma's equivalent is 2x expensive I will sell my Canon 50 mm 1.4 and will by Sigma. Canon is starting to loose quite significant market to Sigma and Tamron. Canon users are not Apple users, they think! Accordingly, I would expect that many people will by Sigma 50 1.4, which is based on new technology, excells Canon, quality is Similar to Zeiss (I really expect that :D ) but price is affordable.

Canon should be ashamed to offer (in the future) non-L 50 mm 1.8 IS....

I am a happy user of both Sigma and Tamron lenses, and am using a Macbook pro to write this reply. I think quite a lot before buying things.
