The combo will be cheaper, lighter, smaller and unless I'm shooting at dusk or dawn, the grizzlies will show the same size (and probably comparable IQ) on the same size print, or my screen.

Time of day changes magnification?  :o


You didn't know that grizzlies shrink at night? :-p
I was trying to avoid responses about low light noise, but it's worded funny, you are right.

I went to the NC State Fair last night to get some photos of the rides and sights.  I was able to go alone this year, the rest of the family would rather be going on the rides, rather than stand by the side and wait for one to start moving to get a neat picture.  Silly people.

All of the ride shots were made with an old Vivitar 17mm f/3.5 lens on a Canon 5D3.

Anyway, here were some of my favorites:

I just wanted to let you all know that I just posted another blog with "real world" examples of using the 7D Mark II at a night football game (this time using ISOs from 5000-16000 and using a 70-200 2.8 lens). You cna find this post at:

I hope you find it helpful.

Crop vs. Full frame.

As a 6d owner - my first full frame- im very unimpressed at its low iso quality. There is no 3d-ish POP that i have seen in so many 5d2/5d3 images over the years - image quality that i could easily see was not reproducible on my crop cameras.

To these ultra pixel peeping eyes, the 6d is only slightly better at dynamic range than my t2i.  High Iso handling is generally FANTASTIC, which is why i figure the low iso takes an image quality hit. Low light photography is a whole other ball game compared to my crop bodies.

So while i enjoy my 6d, its nowhere close to the full frame experience i thought it would be. Still dreaming of a 5d3 and non-ancient AF.  :(

I must have misread. I was under the impression that some people were arguing that 2.8 lens let in the light of an f8 when on the micro 4/3 mount.

As Neuro said, two stops (f5.6), not three.

To understand this, you need to understand the difference between total amount of light, and the intensity of light. Think of a shaft of sunlight - use a magnifying glass to concentrate that light into a smaller area - you get no more light, but the intensity is increased. Just shrouding more of the light to make a narrower shaft leaves the intensity the same, and reduces the total amount.

A greater intensity of light is what's needed to make a smaller area receive the same amount of light. Simply cutting/cropping out some light, and then magnifying/enlarging what's left afterwards results in less light captured. That's otherwise known as a lower signal, which requires more amplification/enlargement, typically resulting in more noise.

rs, you might be right about light, but you are at 666 posts, so you got to post again to avoid being evil :-)
Good point. Ok, here's one to sort out the number.

The Canon 300/2.8 is about the same price as the Olympus 300/2.8, yet the Canon is smaller, and even with the extra heft of the 2x TC and bulkier FF body, lighter. Plus it doubles up as a 4/3rds equivalent of a 150/1.4

I know which I'd rather buy (not taking into account the dropped 4/3rds mount) and carry with me  ;)
