Start of a nosedive??
Maybe the first hint of the pre-dev announcement of the marketing campaign for the dev announcement of the 1DX Mk II.

Start of a nosedive??
well that´s obvious not?I was about to respond that what you describe sounds like contrast-detect focus, not phase-detect focus, but then I figured: I'll just wait for Neuro to respond: he probably has already researched the problem and filed a patent application for it.
the camera had to know if you moved it.
that would mean constant focusing all the time.
otherwise the camera does not "know", if the focus it is set too is the correct focus.
and to know if it has achived optimum focus ist has to have a something it can measure against. that´s why it has to move the focus.

Remember that you have every right to shoot whatever is publicly availableQuoteAnd they have the right to insult and berate you for it; neither is civil. If you wish to claim every millimeter of the law, you must concede to others the same.
Orangutang, I must respectfully disagree with you. It is correct that I have the right to shoot whatever is publicly available. And onlookers (including police or security guards) do have the right civilly and politely to ask me about my activities. But they do not have the right to threaten, harass, detain, intimidate, or in general cause fear or disruption to me. If I as a reasonable person (and I do NOT mean those professionally-offended professional victims) am intimidated or made fearful by an insulting or berating onlooker, I have the right to be free of that intimidation. (The handout on the adkins website is quite clear on this point.)

You can always wear a burka. They are fashionable, GREAT in the summer, and hide your face extremely well.
Understand the way society has become because of how other people actions they want to error on the side of caution or "bad" instead of giving some slack. Smart phones are far more prevalent than cameras today and someone walking around with a DSLR and a lens walking openly in public spaces in my opinion does not scream “this person must be up to no good”. I would have asked did he check all the smart phones in the area to make certain there wasn’t someone taking pictures of his kids because the percentage of that happening would likely be greater.
It's not about danger... it's about the appearance of danger... The cell phones are tiny and go unnoticed. The DSLR, particularly with a "big white" mounted on it, screams out "look at me" and you get noticed. People have watched so many stupid television shows that they are loosing connection to the real world and have trouble putting things in perspective.
Also, if a photographer is "free" to take photos in public places, people in the area are equally "free" to express, even in very strong terms, their disapproval of his public photography. Having a camera in hand does not exempt a person from being the recipient of someone else's "free speech."
Absolutely correct and this is why I said in my previous post that the best response is to just politely respond such as "thanks for the advice" or "I'll keep that in mind". There is no law prohibiting others from speaking to us, what is in our control is how we respond and react. Getting angry and/or escalating the situation is what is going to ruin your day. We live in a society. There are other people and we are going to "bump into them from time to time" whether that is in a verbal interaction, a disagreement, a difference of opinion, or even physically bumping into someone. I just read in the news some kid got shot in the foot because some other kid thought he was cutting into line to buy shoes. In the words of Chris Rock... "if someone scuffs your Puma, let it slide".
That's true also, but different from what I was trying to get at. When someone comes up to a photographer and demands that you do not take pictures of them, their kids, their dog, etc. and/or demands to see your photos they are acting as though it's their right not to be photographed when in fact the opposite is true. Legally, the photographer is not prohibited from taking pictures in public. Harassing someone though by interfering with them, cursing at them, threatening, assaulting, damaging their gear (e.g. hollywood celebs) is in fact prohibited. The point is people tend to think they have rights they don't actually have and then get irate when they think you're violating those perceived rights.
Social norms are a different matter. People do feel uncomfortable being photographed and if I noticed someone specifically photographing me whether with a long lens or a smartphone I would feel uncomfortable. If they kept it up I might ask them to stop but would more likely just walk away. If they followed me and continued photographing me specifically now they might be crossing a legal line in the sense of harassing me.
So, yes I get your point but I was specifically talking about rights and the law, not social norms.
People have the right to take pictures in any public place
tell him you are learning photography and taking pictures of the dogs+1
... and show him the pictures....+10
Why on God's green Earth would I compare RAW files with no NR when I never work that way and neither does anyone else?The 70D is measurably and visibly noisier than the 1D IV. The data backs that conclusion.
I think the tilt lens will be hard to handle for me. I'm a rookie, not a pro!
That being said, people complaining about a little extra weight really need to grow a pair and hit the gym a little....
My wife takes care of our kids everyday. Our infant can't even walk yet, and he weighs more than a Canon 800mm f/5.6. She never complains.
Reading this thread, I can't understand why I never see "sticky" threads on this forum.
BTW, I'm sure there are been people who sometimes complain about their 1D IV, but nobody has ever complained about his/her 7DII, so we can induce that the latter is better from a KarlPopperian point of view.
And now I feel all proud and geeky and self satisfied that I have go through the time and effort to attempt to make an absolutely meaningless point about something completely unrelated to the original topic.
