Hi,
   I think Samsung are able to come out with good camera hardware, but can't said the same thing about their software... just take a look at their pre-android smartphone.... good phone hardware, but the phone software really can't make it... even now, their software still can't make it.

   Anyway, a good camera not only need to have good specification, but also the software (firmware) must be stable and reliable... my confidence is not very high base on their past record...

   Have a nice day.

You're kidding me!!!  :o
Why not in the US?  :'(

Dunno... we're closer to Santa Claus?..

I'm thinking I get to test drive a 7d2 and 24-70/4 L lens then sell it off for a profit on eBay. :}

The 24-70 will be cheaper than their new standard zoom  :o

Lenses / Re: Choose your Weapon: Ultra Wide Zooms for Canon

Can't really vote on this one. The one I have and use a lot is my only EF-S, the 10-22. I only regret that it's one lens I never will be able to carry over to a - imagined, and longed for - FF camera. If they release it with EF mount and make it slightly faster, I will be all over it like flies on a turd.

I was in the same situation when I moved to FF. However, I realized 24mm is a lot wider than 17mm on an APS-C (I had the 17-55).
When I need to go wider, the Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 and TS-E 17mm both offer more unique options. I might still get a UWA zoom but I will wait well into 2015 before I do, and it will possibly be a 16-35 refurb'd.

Wow some people must have really high expectations from Matt Granger for him to be able to just pick up a camera he's never even seen before or even existed before that point and to then be handed it and given a short (a minute or two?) time to get a 100% hit rate in conditions he has has no control over? Well he didn't manage that so the only conclusion can be - that the camera is a dud? Because MG cannot miss. Ever. It's not even thinkable.  :P

If he's going to pick up a new camera, post pics online to "showcase quality" then he should make the pics worthy of such.

As it is, Matt Granger has posted pictures for click bait and to drive his views up. That's about all that you can say for the images posted.

He posted the pics for review and should have made sure they were ready to be reviewed. He didn't.

Matt Granger is just another click bait fool like Ken Rockwell.

I agree he probably should have known better. I couldn't care less about these sample images. They're just creating more confusion and debate over nothing. The link Steve posted has good samples but I think once the real reviews come in from trusted sources we can start to form our own, (hopefully) more informed opinions.

Until then it's still just a new camera and a spec sheet. I note some that are pre-ordering probably don't give a toss about these sample images and are quite satisfied knowing assuming that Canon have made a decent camera here.

1) 100-400 L F4.5-5.6 IS II
2) 135 L F2.0 IS II


FYI, if it has IS, it won't be a vII. It will just be 135mm f/2L IS USM.

I think there is zero chance of their being a 135mm f/1.8L IS USM and very little chance of a 135mm f/2L II USM, but there could be a 135mm f/2L IS USM.

I would love a 85mm f/1.4L USM, but there is little chance of that, too.

EOS Bodies / Re: How can we improve on 5D3 to 5D4?

So... I'm just wondering how many here realize that the D810, D800, and D750 already have every single one of those features...
Perhaps just the few of us who've actually made the switch and learned what features our new toys, uhm, tools possess.
Frankly, many of those cool features I rarely have use for.  I merely moved to get much improved raw files for landscape work.
I do want to borrow a buddy's 150-600mm Tamron and try the D800's AF tracking for BiF shots.
I don't care if I don't have a high frame rate, just good focus.

A version of the 70-300 IS USM lens that isn't rubbish and doesn't cost over $1000.

And I'd like some low calorie ribeye steak, too.

  • EF 2.8 200 IS  -  i tend to see 100-135 mm as "normal" with good close focus capabilties (1:4 would be great)
  • EF-M 2.0 50 IS  -  in a compact package with great IQ, flare resistance and good close focus capabilities. Shure, in my view a moderate wide angle but a good partner for a DSLR with 70-200 or 200mm prime
