I was about to click "same noise, banding, DR as 5D2", but then I saw the "All of the bove".

Bingo!  ;D

why not take your black and gold pom poms and head on over to nikon rumours instead of trolling about here with canon users and our inferior camera who are clearly incapable of producing the wonders that can come from the D800
Thank you for strengthening my distaste in narrow minded fanboys. You do see everything in black and white, don't you?

Everyone who doesn't love Canon's latest camera must be a Nikon troll, right?  ::)

um whats wrong with the 5Dmk3 sensor? other than not being eleventy billion pixels
Well let's see now.

* There were no bump in resolution.
* Almost no improvement in dynamic range (no improvement at all @ lower ISO settings).
* Canon failed to completely fix the issue with banding.
* The only strength 5D3 sensor has over the 5D2 is on the extreme ISO settings. (which I never use anyway).

Nikon on the other hand, they did all of it and then some!

I am not saying that the 5D3 is a bad camera, but people upgrading from 5D2 to 5D3 are basically paying $3500 for upgraded (fixed) AF, built in HDR and a rate button.

so you own one do you? or are you just regurgitating the tired old internet waffle that is continuously being regurgitated as absolute fact?
::)

Lack of arguments huh? Don't know what to say in defense? I can see why, because there is nothing to say.

No, I do not own a 5D3. Why would I?

However, I have tried it, and my conclusion is the same as most other's (except the hardcore fanboys). The 5D3 is a good camera, just like the 5D2, but with no sensor improvement. It's sensor pales in comparison to the main competitions latest offering (the D800).


I think your analysis of the 5DIII is rather like saying a D800 is an upgrade of a D700 - totally off mark.
Nope. The D800 is the true successor of the 5D2. Too bad it has a Nikon-badge on it.

A bit off topic, but let's see now.

* Almost no improvement in dynamic range (no improvement at all @ lower ISO settings).
* Canon failed to completely fix the issue with banding.
* The only strength 5D3 sensor has over the 5D2 is in the extreme ISO settings. (which I never use anyway).

The sensor is just meeh..

I fully expect the lowest possible consumer-crappy mirrorless camera from Canon.
It will be a G1X with a lens mount and possibly a sorry little EVF instead of the G1X's sorry little OVF.
The lenses will be three sorry crappy kit lenses, a 28-90 equivalent f/3.5-5.6 kit zoom, a slow 40mm pancake of some sort and a slow tele zoom.

Autofocus will be dead slow like on the G1X. It will not have the hybrid FPPD-AF + CD-AF of the 650D.
fps and operational speed will be dead slow. The thing will suck in every possible way and still cost as much as a 60D.

I really hate them for it already in advance.

Instead of pouring your hate into every thread why not have a more objective approach backed up with some real experience/evidence instead of just malicious rumour and gueswork?

+1

Sure some people have been a bit disappointed by their latest releases, but that doesn't mean you can't have some hope for something awesome on the horizon  :D
Kinda hard to have hope after the 5D3 sensor, and now this.

But yeah, otherwise I agree with you.

We’ve heard only little bits of info about the mirrorless camera. The most notable is mentions that it will use the same sized sensor as the G1 X, and maybe even the exact same sensor.

And there we have it! This is exactly what I predicted a couple of weeks ago! Yet another let down down from Canon is on the horizon.

I guess the only way to get a mirrorless camera with FF is to dish out out $7000 - $8000 for the Leica M9, or the upcoming M10.

Dear Canon, why have you ceased to innovate and amaze?

I really like this shot, nice processing
Thanks! Here is another.

This would be a seriously amazing lens to have from Canon.

Combine that with releases of a 35mm 1.4L + 50mm 1.4L & 135mm 1.8 L IS and I would be totally content.
Yes, but 50mm 1.4L?

1.4?

I hope Canon doesn't read this - or it will be $3000+ or as much as they can possibly get away with, looking at the huge amount of photogs who have been waiting this for years.
Of course they can get away with it, and they will! Just look at the 5D3 vs D800 pricetag. Canon did get away with that just fine, even though the D800 is arguably a better camera with a sensor that blows the 5D3 halfway across the galaxy.

As long as canonites continue to bend over, Canon will get away with their crazy pricing.

Now, we'll like to see Canon make some headway in the low ISO sensor dynamic range department for non-Exmor sensors.
I'm afraid that this recipe is something that Nikon / Sony won't share with others. :P

Canon will probably have to find their own solution when it comes to improving their sensor tech.

Until then, I'll be sticking with my 5D2.
