Square. People will think you shot it on a Hasselblad.

I'm holding out for the 85mm f/1.0 L, myself. More light, not less. IMO, the notion that sensor improvements negate the value of fast lenses is just silly. Sensor improvements make fast lenses more capable.
Not sure what impact this will have on EXMOOR availability in the future.
LOL at the trolling regarding the 7D2 AF, first of all the guy was making an informal test of the High ISO SOOC JPEGs from the cam, not its AF performance.
Yes, an informal test, so the results of it should be universally ignored or taken with a grain of salt.
at least he has his gut to post his out of focus image?
What he did wasn't gutsy but a plain grab for attention and clicks.Quotehow about you?
"mine is bigger than yours"? How mature.
1. bigger but useless does not help ... LOL...
2. he is a business guy, what do you expect...
however, i have at least realized that you know very little about how to take images... otherwise, you already take my challenges... if your images are that s*cks, then do not give out comments or try to educate other people about photography after doing some crap research around the internet. if you are that good in technology, then apply for the r&d departments... instead of being so, join forums and keep learning just like some others and i do...
you have not answer my previous question on topic "Do Sensors Make the Camera" and again, be-careful in giving out answer, otherwise, i am going to call you as a guy being born with tofu brain...
... or you want to downgrade to my canon 30d and 50mm f/1.4? again, i guarantee that your images cannot be sharper than mine regardless what camera i use (from canon 30d to modern), certainly not better than any others in this forums, but definitely better than yours...
note: my daughter at a chess tournament, while little one playing crazy chess with her friend... taken with canon 30d and 430ex ii (in single shot mode, not high-speed burst since i hate process of rating images). if admin think what i am talking is not right, let me know and i will delete my post immediately...
I think something is up with my 5D III.
While some people are complaining as you describe, other continue saying "How could they put the same sensor? ", which is kind of pathetic. However, lets forget those people and focus on the possibilities of the all-new 7D MKII sensor!!
Indeed. But let us not forget the all new 18 MP APS-C sensor in the T4i/650D (all new because of Hybrid CMOS AF) or the all new 18 MP APS-C sensor in the SL1/100D (all new because of Hybrid CMOS AF II).
Good point. But given that there is no new technology advertised (that I can see, that is), is it fair to assume the "newness" will come from the actual sensor? I sure hope so.
Perhaps. Canon had a patent publish recently on improved DPAF for use in AI Servo AF, and now the 7DII has DPAF in AI Servo AF. I'm not sure if that required a hardware tweak to the sensor, but if so, that could be what's 'all new'.
Canon's priority is DR at the top of the histogram (where it performs very well), and that suits me just fine.You completely misunderstand dynamic range.
Is this what they call "field day" in English :-> ?
I still find it laughable though that in the end, it really really, really, does seem like people are all too happy for Canon to not get their DR up to where the competition is
Which assumes, of course, that - unlike an old, out-of-date, underpowered PC - this supposed lack of DR actually stops us from getting the results we want.
Which it doesn't...
Canon's priority is DR at the top of the histogram (where it performs very well), and that suits me just fine.
Let me know when a Nikony sensor can do better than this from this, and you might have a point...
Canon will do what it believes is in the best interests of its shareholders in the mid to long term, coincidentally they very often know better than us what we actually need.
..Let's think for a second: who will buy the D610 if they can pay a few hundred more for a D750?
I am more envious of the 20/1.8. I wish Canon made something like that...
As for the 20/1.8... I'm salivating just thinking about it.
I use an old AIS MF 20/2.8 and an AI 20/3.5 and they're both very good, the 3.5 being very compact and light.
it there's slightly better corner sharpness with lower CA in this new lens, it will be very welcome
I did bracket it. At +1 EV the highlights are unrecoverable.
Usually you can recover ~1ev from the raw files, so imho your bracketing spacing is too small and only will create problems when assembling more shots than necessary.The snow is *really* bright and the shadows in the tree quite dark.
To be on topic concerning the 7d2: Rejoice, in such scenes, no sensor dynamic range upgrade will be enough. Snow is very tough, a good choice is to bracket with a very large spacing (like 3ev) and then do not hdr tone mapping, but exposure fusion in postprocessing as the scene consists of very dark and very bright. To minimize wasted exposures, do exposure correction to get the correct brackets.
Where higher dynamic range of 14-15ev does help a lot though is in standard bright daylight to get shadow detail w/o blowing the sky. You can use Magic Lantern's raw histogram to show you exactly how much dr the scene has.
