Yes, all photographers are consumers - but, some consumers just buy cameras - that doesn't necessarily make them photographers.  Yeah yeah yeah its a nebulous term.  But, many trades are learned by apprenticing.  Like plumbing - you learn from a plumber...again, just because I buy a wrench and replace a gasket that doesn't make me a plumber.  Just because you buy a camera and snap a few shots, that doesn't make you a photographer.  That's the point the original person was making.  It's a dividing line between those who are serious and willing to learn and those that buy it cause its fancy - the latter cares about what the specs really mean, the former says that # is bigger than the other so it must be better.

Perhaps more succinctly: Just because you can write doesn't make you a writer.

give Neuros camera to your nice, and make money , simple as that


Is this right ?

Has ankorwatt submitted a post that doesn't compare a 5D mkii to a D800 ?

Or has some of it been deleted ?

I know one thing that will defiantly be announced on the 23rd.

Ankorwatt will announce he has managed to take two pictures, one will be taken with a 5d3 and will not be very good. Just maybe the other will be taken with a d800, that one will surprise him with how good it is.  ::)

Anyone want to take a bet against this prediction?  ;D

It's around 6.30 on the Indochinese peninsula, the rainy season is coming our way, closer to 40 degrees outside, 104f for you guys in the promised land, no announcements as far as I've seen. Maybe I should be out taking pictures instead as I'm happy with what I got anyway.

they would announce a boring 70D with a boring old 18 MP sensor anyway... no 7D MK2.

but we have sigma to the rescue.

a nice lens announced, some rumored to follow...

•a 135mm f/1.8 DG OS lens (“ART” line-up)
•a 24mm f/1.4 DG lens (“ART” line-up)
•an updated 50mm f/1.4

18MP on APS-C  looks like it is the limit of their old fab line. They have to be using that line, so they have to schedule mass market cameras there. They might put a lower volume camera on the newer line (they can't put in too much large sensor production, because it eats compact camera sensor production, which can't go on the other line.
Canon have problems to keep up with others who have 5-7 lines for different sensors
I would say that Canon are in trouble with a old line not modern enough to handle  higher resolution with high accuracy  and a new line dedicated for compact sensors but  they are still  buying compact sensors from Sony
a mystery and only Canon knows how they are tackling the problem, so 18 Mp looks  what we can count with for a long time, and no new ideas about raw wise ADC etc

Where are these lines located?  Are you saying a "newer line" might be in a new factory, in a new location?
