Bye Canon?
« on: April 23, 2013, 03:50:52 PM »
Hey folks,
I'been waiting so long fot the 70d.... now it's again some more weeks away-at least. :-(

Looks like I'm finally going to switch to Nikon after 8 YEARS Canon... and now i'm wondering who else?
Anyone else out there who takes the consequences of the missing features or am i the only one?



Just wondering....

Hello pictaker,

Welcome to cr.

I'm satisfied with Canon so far, I don't think switching to Nikon will give me a better choice.

8 YEARS ?

What a strange first post  ::)

I'm just frustated and i want canon to know!
I mean i love the 60d, but no real video af. I want a seald dslr
with a big viewfinder -and a good video af. Maybe even a gps since i do make most of my photos outdoor on many different locations...again, frustrated.

I think that if you are hoping for genuine 'video camera' type AF from a 70D you are likely to be disappointed. The video AF capability of the 650D is barely any better than what preceded it.

I love Nikon, I'm going to get one... someday... but for now I'm happy with my Canon exclusive lenses and features.

'We' are not Canon...  They have a forum now, staffed by Canon moderators, maybe try there...

1. Better Prime Selection
2. Better Flash.
3. Better ergos and a common sense Menu system
4. Better AF
5. Its Red.  :P

I know you're not canon. I just thought i could start here a wave causing canon to speed up the 70d release. I know they care about my post...

Sporgon- i would expect the 70 to be at least competitive with the 650/700 but with better viewfinder/pentaprism and weatherproofed for my outdoor activities. Maybe i was also monitoring cr to close, waiting several times minute by minute for 'my' new dslr. Now the next trip is close and i do not have my new toy :-(

OK yes having a well sealed body is important to me and yes canon ticks me off not sealing expensive equipment as well as they could. GPS would be nice.... Sadly I bet only reason its left out is so they can sell us a GPS module. Bigger brighter view is always better!

Video AF? :-)  I'll sacrifice video to get any or all of the above!!

That being said all in all Canon fits my needs better than anybody else.

It sounds more like you should be looking at the 7D rather than the 70D!  I'm a 5DM3 guy, but I'd rather have a 7D for video over a (still projected/rumored/ficticious) 70D any day!
5DM3, EF 50 f1.4, EF 24-70 f2.8 II, EF 70-200 f2.8 USM IS II, EF 24-104 f4, Siggy 12-24 f3.5

Pictaker, perhaps you could tell us exactly which Nikon camera you plan on switching to that will give you weather sealing and good video AF? There's not one that I can think of, especially not in the same price range as the 60D/7D. The closest would be the D7100 which still does not offer proper video AF.

You might want to take a look and the Panasonic GH3 though.
5dmkII, 60D, 70-200mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.8, Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8, Sigma 150-500mm.
