Any hope for new APS-H camera
« on: November 24, 2012, 04:25:15 PM »
The 1D Mark IV is great wildlife camera - the 1.3 crop works greater with long lenses.   Plus 10 FPS is excellent for capturing action.    Any hope for a newAPS-H sensor?

Who knows?  But I'd say it's unlikely. Canon wants people to buy longer (more expensive) lenses to use with FF bodies.  It worked on me - if I'd had a 1DIV, I might have gone with the 500/4L IS II, but I bought the 600/4L IS II instead for use with the 1D X.   Now that the 1D X has f/8 AF (better than the previous 1-series), I think Canon will stick with FF and APS-C for the future...

I'm an unashamed frontline fan of APS-H. But I think my 1D4 may well be my last APS-H body. From a business viewpoint it makes complete sense for Canon to rationalize to FF and APS-C. What Dr Neuro says about the profitable environment Canon has created to push people into new, longer lenses will chime with a lot of photographers. For my particular needs the 300 f/2.8is on APS-H is practical and ideal. But on FF 1DX the need to dig deep for a 400 f/2.8isII will be essential. So I'll be squeezing maximum life out of the 1D4, delaying the 1DX/400 f/2.8isII purchase.

Another reason for holding off on the 1DX/400 f/2.8isII purchase is the potential for a 7DII presenting as a high quality APS-C alternative to the 1D4. Not that superb 1-Series build/ergonomics we know and love, but a substantially viable, inexpensive sports/wildlife/BIF 1D4 replacement. With even more reach.
