have you actually used it or just looking at internet waffle?
This camera is awesome period.
I feel like a veil has been lifted going from the 5D2 to this
I was never unhappy with the IQ from the mk2
Both Canon and Nikon ALREADY use processing to increase the dynamic range of RAW files. Nikon's processing is several times more advanced than Canon's though.
I wouldn't worry about this as this is what we get and is the best that Canon engineers have deemed we will have and we can't change that unless there is a firmware update.
yeah.... the 4,200 AUD translates to 4,529 USD. makes me completely unsympathetic to the Americans who are complaining about the price.
Whenever you bring your camera outside (in extremely humid places- not limited to FL), put it in a dry bag/sack. Let the body acclimate to the temperature and pull it out of the bag. This will minimize condensation on the lens and inside/outside of the body.
I shoot a lot of HDRI (I know many of you already hate me) but it has been a lucrative part of my pro and art photography and I find the uniqueness of images I can create using it gives me freedom to move beyond the limitations of a single exposure and into a more realistic approximation of how the human visual system is constantly merging vastly different lighting conditions into a visual representation of the world around us (sorry for the jargon, but I'm studying sensory systems in my PhD work).
Looking through old magazines the other day--November '05 Outdoor Photog--and see an ad for the 5D classic--$3299,95! Was that the price they originally went for? Make the III seem a bit more tolerable...
IMHO, pros are much more heavily invested into lenses, accessories, etc than someone stepping up from point-and-shoot into a $500 DSLR, so even if Nikon releases a superior product, it has to be substantially better than the Canon alternative for people to seriously consider switching systems.
True, but the students of today are the pros of tommorow. One of the reasons Canon has done so well over the last decade is they have such a strong 'entry level=>pro' upgrade path, so when people are just getting started out Canon has a good lineup for them to explore and as their careers progress they have better options.
Nikon, if it wants to expand its market, is not going to go after established photographers with their brand loyalty/investment,.. or at minimal they would be foolish to.. no, what they would have to do is go after the newbies and students.
