EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Mirrorless vs. DSLR Poll
« Last post by old-pr-pix on Today at 10:31:00 AM »
I already have Olympus mirrorless and Canon DSLR... I look forward to the soon to be released OMD-EM1 Mark II and the 5D Mark IV - both pro-oriented bodies - with high likely-hood of purchasing once the initial offering price drops.  I like the fact the M4/3 bodies and lenses can be very small and light yet yield professional results for many applications.  However, nothing beats the Canon lens selection and, so far, the AF for fast moving subjects.  Why argue?  Get both!

This launch price is expected. There will be Christmas sales, and a price reduction at most large retailers within 6 - 12 months.

If I remember right, the 5D3 came out at US$3300.
I bought it about 6 months after launch at US$2750 from B&H.

Still waiting for the rumored full frame mirrorless.
IF this camera is coming, please Canon, please don't mess it up and let it take EF lenses without adapter.

Canon should get rid of Canon USA and sell direct from their factory in Oita ! In the rare event warranty work is required, Canon Jpn should have support centers in low cost third countries. Will be a slight in convenience for US buyers but potentially big cost savings. The 5d4 is a $ 2400 camera selling for 3500.

I'm thinking my sarcasm meter is broken..

Same here. I presume this was sarcastic, because no one could be crazy enough to believe this – it's even beyond our cubicle dwelling cartoon character.

Anybody thinks that it will be possible to link active AF-Point to metering like the 1dx!?
Not a chance....that seems to be a forgotten feature that's not trickling down from the 1D series / ahem...Eos-1.

+1, but if that feature is on a Nikon D5500, a guy can dream.

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L IS Mentioned Again [CR2]
« Last post by ahsanford on Today at 10:19:48 AM »
According to Lensrentals, at 70mm the 24-70IIL is shaper. At 24mm it's sharper than the sharpest Canon 24mm prime, the TSe 24IIL. So yes...you could shay that it's sharp. It's probably the sharpest zoom ever made.

..and dethroning the 70-200 f/2.8L IS II in the process.   But in fairness, that's like saying your Bugatti is slightly quicker than your Ferrari.  Both are stellar instruments.

I'm really hoping you are wrong on this one (not saying you are). I know it's not directly related, but even the RGB metering sensor trickled down from the 1D series to the 5D4. I still hope they put in the AF-point spot metering by accident by forgetting to remove it from the common firmware tree. ;D
However this is not something you usually see in specs, I'm waiting for the manual...

If both cameras have the same AF capabilities, FPS, handling, ergonomics, etc. I could choose mirrorless.

But in the real world, the mirrorless cameras still have performance deficiencies compared to the current 80D.

Not sure I should answer this one, but as a pro, CPS is one of the very main reasons for buying Canon. I can't afford to have repairs done in India with a 6 weeks turnover.

Maybe one should replace YOUR job with one in a low cost country, it wouldn't be a huge inconvenience for me....

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Patent: Tamron 115mm f/1.4 VC
« Last post by ahsanford on Today at 10:16:01 AM »
Tamron reacting maybe to the Nikon 105mm f1.4 going on sale this month. The Nikon lens Ive seen shots from and is a dam good lens that nails autofocus.
The Canon EF 100mm f2.8L IS USM Macro lens is a very sharp lens that also nails autofocus, however 2 stops more on the Nikon lens is pretty useful.

It's unlikely to be this.  Patent applications don't get posted overnight.  This lens -- at least at enough of a concept stage to define for a patent -- was put to paper a long time ago.
