Photography wise, my wish list and not necessarily for me to purchase but to be added to the Canon system,would be as follows:

More Pancakes. A wider FF such as a 20/24. Imagine a Color-Skopar 20 a bit faster-2.8, and with an STM.

Updates to the following Primes: 50 1.4,100 f/2, 135 f/2L, 200 2.8L, 400 f/5.6L.

A refresh to the Remote/Trigger lines

<p>A replacement is going to cost closer to $2000 than the current $1500 pricetag. We’ve heard that the EOS 6D replacement may go a bit upmarket, which could bring a higher price.</p>

D750 equivalent?
Given how much people seem to like that, sounds like a good idea. Not that a "budget 5D3" wasn't always the logical next step.

Hopefully it comes with a real tilty screen and not the cheap half-baked one-axis tilt.

Good review.

Conclusion: Wait for the next model upgrade (6D II, 5D IV, 1DX II)

The purchase of my first 7D was was unexpected as a 40D crapped as I was just starting a 3-day job that NEEDED 2 bodies. As an un-budgeted purchase, I skipped the grip at first. A month or so later, I went to buy a grip and was sticker-shocked by the price. Maybe I was wrong, but it seemed like it was quite a price hike from the price of the 40D grips I'd had before. I decided I'd already gotten along for a month without the grip, I could go a little longer.

And now, 3 years later…

With the 40D's old BP511 batts, I was glad to have a pair on board in the grip for a long day of shooting. But the 7D's batteries have better life, so I no longer worry about having two loaded at once. And the 7D plays better with my flash bracket grip-less.

I think the main reason I got the grips on my 40D's was that I felt I wouldn't look as professional otherwise. But in the end, the client looks at your photos, not your equipment. Sure, a grip feels pretty good in the hand, but every piece of my equipment has to pay for itself, and for me, the grip just doesn't add any real value.

Like the 70-200mm 2.8 I had to sell in a financial crunch last year, I'm actually kind of surprised how much I *don't* miss being gripped.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Anything wrong with mRAW or sRAW
« Last post by candc on Today at 09:32:39 PM »
I am not sure how mraw or sraw is created but I have become a big believer in downsampling with the bicubic sharper algorithm when converting raw to jpeg for online viewing. You dont need to do any sharpening first and you get a really nice clean and sharp image but its only 5mpx. If a big megapixel camera could give you that same benefit while creating a 10mpx raw file then that would be fabulous.

Lenses / Which Canon Full Frame Camera is For You?

FroKnowsPhoto has posted a video asking (and answering) which Canon full frame camera he thinks is for you (plus the EOS 7D Mark II). Jared talks about the EOS 6D, 5D Mark III, EOS-1D X and the APS-C EOS 7D Mark II.


I agree with most of what Jared says, outside of the EOS 6D. I think for $1499 after rebates, it’s still a buy now camera. A replacement is going to cost closer to $2000 than the current $1500 pricetag. We’ve heard that the EOS 6D replacement may go a bit upmarket, which could bring a higher price.



EOS 7D Mark II $1799 | EOS 6D $1499 | EOS 5D Mark III $2799 | EOS-1D X $5999

In addition to the oft-mentioned 50mm f/1.4 IS, I would like a 600mm f/4 DO IS.
