Lenses / Re: Canon EF 35 f/1.4L II to Finally Arrive? [CR1]
« on: December 10, 2013, 10:51:49 AM »
Thanks to my razor sharp Sigma 35, I'm not even interested in the 35L II. Not any longer.. The 35L II will probably match the Sigma 35 in terms of IQ. Maybe even outperform it a little bit.. But the price tag will be totally Canon. :D

If Canon wants to sell something new in this FL, they should release a tack sharp 16-35L III. (sharp corner to corner). I'd buy that!

Like I said before. Canon's "Answer" to the Nikon D800 (and future D900, and the Sony A7R) will come as a big bulky elephant sized 1D-body, with a price tag that most people can't touch. :D

Oh Canon..

Looks like Canon´s business development department reads Canonruomors.com after all :)
Ah! So that's why they are still milking their ancient sensor tech, and put so much focus on video features and video gear? Is that also why the EOS M (and probably the M2) is the shittiest of all MILC-cameras?

Does not compute.

I mean, it's quite sad when the best thing that happens to Canon users this year, comes from Sony!! :P

Yet again more good news for the pro video guys. Last announcement was for dual pixel in the C100. I'm beginning to think photography is just a side business for Canon now. That would be a shame if they just forgot about us! Accounting and marketing divisions are running the show, I guess. Oh well!
Hence why I've stopped buying gear from Canon, and now I'm looking at brands I never cared about before, like Sony and Fuji.

The 5D3 might very well be my last Canon body.

EOS Bodies / Re: to all the Megapixel and DR whiners....
« on: November 02, 2013, 10:18:52 AM »
Pretty pointless thread don't you think? Remember how the AF-crowd cried their hearts out about the 5D2 AF? Well, look what that got them.  ::)

Flaws are meant to be whined at, or no change will come.

Could this be Canon's high MP offering?
Could this be Canon's D800 / A7R "competitor" in a $7.000 elephant body?

I just can't see too many ordinary people (i.e. not Canon die-hards) buying a ~$7K gargantuan body over the much smaller, cheaper $2300 Sony A7R, which in all likelihood will still have better DR, probably also better noise performance if the new Canon sports >40+ Megapixels.   :-[
Well, obviously. I guess you missed the sarcastic touch in my text.

But yes, this is probably how Canon is going to market their high MP jump.

They will put the sensor in a big ass expensive 1D-body, and market it with words like "amazing, revolutionary, groundbreaking".

Third Party Manufacturers / Sony A7R on DXO - Highest full frame IQ ever
« on: October 31, 2013, 12:49:48 PM »

DxOmark just published the full Sony A7r sensor test. And according to their measuresand ranking system the camera scores the same points as the Nikon D800-D800E (and that for $500 less). And it literally kicks the Canon5DIII in the butt.

This is what DxO writes about the A7r:

“Although we can’t provide any commentary on image sharpness at this stage in our tests, the sensor in the Sony Alpha 7R performs exceptionally and is on a par with that found in the D800 models. Given the Sony’s small size, low weight and outstanding sensor performance, it’s one of the most intriguing and compelling new additions in recent times.”

Well played Sony! And thanks to the wonderful metabones adapter, I guess we could say that this really is the "Canon body" we have been waiting for. :D

Add 14-24L and keep typing for a few days. I'm counting on you!

EOS Bodies / Re: Patent: A Pellicle Mirror by Canon
« on: October 31, 2013, 09:36:40 AM »
Is this going to make the body smaller to compete with the mirroless systems?
Listen, Canon... if you're reading...unless its going to make OVF better and not just smaller... don't waste your time. Unless you're going to cram more tech into the current bodies...

Think of it this way... not everyone wants small mirrorless cameras... its small and its cute, but thats about it.
Its like a Mini Cooper, not everyone wants one... similarly not everyone wants a Hummer either, but there is no point in making your entire product line into a mini cooper. If anything be like Toyota, have the yaris, corrolla, camry, RAV4, 4Runner, etc.

Wrong. Image quality is everything. If cameras can be made tiny without losing IQ, then go for it.

Who wants to drag around on big heavy bulky S___ if it isn't really necessary?

The only reason to why I'm still shooting DSLRs is because of the IQ. Sony's new A7R (tiny FF body) might replace my canon bodies permanently.

Oh little EOS M. What are you going to do now that Sony has launched their EF-capable A7 and A7R?

Just go FF or go home.

Yawn. The tele market is already flooded with lenses, but we are still waiting for a sharp UWA-zoom from both Canon and Sigma.

« on: October 27, 2013, 03:38:12 AM »
It entirely depends on what you want to shoot. If center sharpness is all that matters, then the 16-35 II will probably make you happy. But if you shoot landscapes, architecture, or other stuff where corner sharpness actually matters, then don't even think about the 16-35. It's a terrible lens in this regard, and doesn't even deserve the L-badge.

Go for a couple of primes instead. I highly recommend the Zeiss 21 and the ultra cheap but also ultra sharp Samyang 14mm.

I have no idea why it's taking Canon so darn long to bring out a decent UWA-zoom, but I really hope that the 14-24L is on the way. There is also rumors about a 16-50L. Both of these should have significantly better sharpness than the 16-35II and 17-40L.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: High Megapixel DLSR a niche market?
« on: October 26, 2013, 02:16:48 AM »
Well then, good thing I preordered the A7R. :D

It seems that Canon has lost their mind completely. High MP and mirrorless full frame is no more niche than the 1DX.

And it's not just about the high resolution. Canon has still to release a sensor with improved dynamic range and NO shadow banding.
