EOS Bodies / Re: Next year's APS-C vs. this year's FF

It would not make sense for them to release a APS-C camera that is equal to or better than the current FF sensors...  but if they did, it would be in the price range of the 1DX.

If they did have the tech to do it right now, why would they? there is not enough market pressure for them to discard possible profits and. they are still making money on the current tech...  it is dumb for them to not ride the gravy train!

Just my 2 pence! :)

TrumpetPower - Thanks...  good idea! It would appear my brain was not switched on today! :)

I just saw your gear list. It's VERY GOOD. So I guess it depends on how your 450D limits you. I would wait a few months to see if Canon would announce a 7DMkII and then decide. (By the way how your 450D compares to 7D in high ISO? I have NO idea but if I were to guess I would expect it to be at least equally good... )

Yes, my 450D is the limiting factor now...  ISO limitation is frustrating, AF, DR, IQ, and evening the metering is bugging me (though it has taught me a lot, since I work almost always in manual with only centre AF, focusing and recomposing).
I have never had the chance to directly compare with other cameras but ISO 400 is the max (800 B&W)... 1600 is almost useless unless i get the exposure absolutely perfect, because there is little rescuing, and even then, it is mushy! From what i gather the 7D is slightly better, but not amazingly so! :)

I have hopes for 7D mk II, but then even if it is announced in Feb/March, it won't be available until the summer, and then will take another 6-9 months for the price to "settle"...  I'm driving my little 450D into the ground (nearly 80k actuations)... 

Thanks for your advice.. I do indeed have a nice set of cropped lenses...  and will be sad to see them go... :)

I've made this point frequently...

Thanks! It is a great point to be made! ;)

No, but welcome to a world where you wide angle lenses are wildly expensive or wildly bad. You will cry for your 10-22 again...

It will be sitting on my 450D until i can get a wildly expensive WAL to go with a wildly expensive camera! Well, that would be the plan! :)

Thanks all for your help! :)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Dumb question?

Hey this is probably a dumb question, but here goes...

I want to go FF, but loosing the length i get from a cropped body worries me. But I had a thought...

I am using a 450D (12MP) and am thinking of getting me a 5D MKIII (22MP)...  If i were to crop the FF image to 12MP, what is the crop factor? 1.8 (22/12)???  If this is the case, with a 5D MKIII image cropped, i will actually be getting more magnification than i would with my 450D...  and a lot better quality (i would hope)...

Am I barking up the wrong tree here? Am I being dumb (i'm not renown for my maths skills)?

Hmmm...  :)

I am looking for a prime around here...  lets see how the 35 f/2 IS stacks up with it...  still, maybe a shorty40 is still the best option? who knows! :) Too many options drives me mad, but too few is worse! :D

Shouldn't we start seeing reviews now that the lens is officially available for purchase? I can't seem to find any


Someone go out and treat yourself...  then let me know if it is worth me doing the same! ;)

Sigma 35/1.4 seems definitely worth checking out:

Off-topic a bit, but is the new sigma meant to be weather sealed?

I'm starting to warm to the idea of a 6D, but I'm going to see how it handles in the wild before I pass final judgement!
