Sorry i'm not posting an image for you to use but I just wanted to let you know that I think your method/software is truly going to be amazing! Even just for use to extract more accurate color/detail/dynamic range from your typically exposed photos.

Any idea on how long we might be looking at till it may be in product stage?

Anyway - Canon's smartest move EVER, all categories, regardless of camera quality, sensors, whatever, was to make their most expensive lenses white. More important than any test score or review anywhere, ever.

So many people assume those lenses must be better than Nikon's just because they look the way they do. And the people holding them feel cool.
Brilliant marketing? Yep. Your photo says it all, doesn't it.

what's almost as smart is when Nikon caved in and decided to copy Canon to be cool..

score an 82 and beats 5d mkiii out of the top ten. May the fun begin.

Where are the Nikon shooters in hollywood?

too busy reading dxo charts maybe?   ;D ;D ;D

this is actually representative of the real world, believe it or not, lurking Nikon fan boys.. at my photography school, it is overwhelmingly Canon.. I have a similar shot like this I took as a behind the scenes photo series i take of a portrait class I was taking.. we were shooting a model outdoors that day in an alley and i captured a shot of all the other students in a bundle, some standing, some kneeling, some sitting/laying on the floor.. what i found particularly striking and amusing upon reviewing it later was that it was a SEA OF CANON telephoto lenses and in the middle one lonely Nikon orphan..

the metering system in the 7D is also noticeably improved. the 7D is a great camera.

Congrats! i'm sure you will continue to be happy and impressed with your new gear. =)

Am i the only one who would like handheld night mode and NR multi-shot modes as an option even on my 5D Mark III as well!?

Yes the handheld night mode springs from a feature on Sony's point and shoots and could help the more novice shooters with keeping acceptable handheld shutter speeds/sharp low light shots, but it can also be used by more advanced shooters as a form of image stabilization to achieve the same shot at a lower effective iso.. and with a handheld night shot mode or NR multi-exposure reduction mode helping to gain an additional 1+ stop in noise performance of the 5D Mark III's already outstanding performance, I just think that would be great to have as an option.. which I doubt is in consideration for the next firmware updates.. =T

i NEED to sell my 5D Mark III as soon as possible! somebody please just at least offer me enough to buy a D3200!

I'm sure you'll be ecstatic if/when Canon releases that newer 100-400L II.. :)

i'm confused.. Nikon gear is more expensive than Canon.. ? lenses, etc.. for the same performance.. such as the 24mm 1.4, 35mm 1.4, etc primes..

yes, the 24-70 G is a great lens. their 35mm F/1.4 is sharper across the entire frame etc. the 105mm F/2.8 macro is also some great glass. but the D800 will still magnify the CA on any of them.

A review of this lens:
http://www.ephotozine.com/article/tamron-sp-24-70mm-f-2-8-vc-usd-lens-review-19056


The graphs look pretty normal - peak in lens resolution at somewhere around f/5.6 to f/8.0. For a landscape shot, at f/8 or f/11, it's going to be pretty damn good.

Interestingly, even though the center peaks at 8.0, it is also at around this point when the entire image is of similar resolution - exactly what you want and need for a good landscape shot.

To read the graph in a different manner, if you're shooting portrait at 2.8, looking for nice bokeh with your subject centered then the drop off in resolution towards the edge is not going to harm the picture at all.


look at the graphs for the Canon 24-70 mark I at F/2.8 in another tab/window.
