Lenses / New Pancake Lenses
« on: September 22, 2012, 01:29:53 PM »
For which focal lengths might Canon pancake lenses be possible in the future. I haven't seen any rumors of any.
I think the 40mm pancake would make a great lens to use for stereoscopic landscape photography. I'm lusting for it and I don't even have a second body... yet. (Yes, I know you can shoot two shots with the same camera by just moving a little bit to the side. But if water or something else moves, then two bodies is the way to go.)
So, what focal lengths can be pancaked?

EOS Bodies / DxOMark Sensor Performance: Nikon vs. Canon
« on: September 19, 2012, 12:20:43 PM »
Canon has some catching up to do with respect to sensor performance as measured by http://www.DxOMark.com. Canon doesn't even come close to the top performing Nikons.  (High score is better.):

Pts Model
=======
96 Nikon D800E
95 Nikon D800
94 Nikon D600
81 Canon 5D III
79 Canon 5D II

(The Canon 1Dx is not yet rated.)
What are the chances that one of the reasons for the new sensor in the 6D is to catapult Canon's sensor performance into the mid 90's? I can't see Canon doing that considering the $3,500 EOS 5D III just came out and has a score of just 81. But Nikon's new $2,100 D600 kicks butt with a score of 94!

Sensor performance isn't everything... but, if I were to choose Nikon or Canon today, I wouldn't be choosing Canon.

EOS Bodies / EOS 6D with "Fixed Pentaprism"
« on: September 17, 2012, 06:39:27 AM »
I'm looking at a comparison of the 5D II, 5D III, & 6D
http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/slr_cameras?pageKeyCode=65&category=0901e0248006113c&compare=0901e0248045e25e&compare=0901e02480041740&compare=0901e02480642520.
(The product page for the 6D is not yet loading on the Canon site.)

The 6D is the only one of the three to have an Eye-level SLR (with fixed pentaprism.) What does the fixed pentaprism mean?

DPReview does show a top view. It looks like the 6D does have the variable diopter correction.

EOS Bodies / Adorama is Taking Pre-Orders for EOS 6D
« on: September 16, 2012, 12:12:07 PM »
Adorama just sent me a confirmation email for a pre-order of the EOS 6D. The link to the camera does not yet work. But, the description in the invoice says:
ICA6D    Canon EOS-6D Digital SLR Camera Body, 20.2 Megapixels, Full Frame CMOS Sensor    $2099.00
Fun!
I got wait listed by sending the request to my last Adorama sales agent.
