Just got my GH3 today, fabulous camera! And that's coming from a 5DII, while I was hopefully waiting for a new 7D or better, a 70D (the flip screen and lighter weight, better for my video work), well looks like it ain't happening, and Panasonic just gave us the answer for amazing video, when Canon just isn't doing that...
It's no 7D for sheer speed, but weather sealed, good "new" sensor with all the DR Canon's missing out on, mFT having more DR than a 5D Mark III is just so ridiculous. But my 5DII will stay for photos, and together with the GH3 is starting to look like a dandy combo, just wish Panasonic made a half decent flash that's as good as the 430EX II.

Oh and Sigma lenses getting so much better, if Sigma makes a 24mm 1.4 and 135mm 1.8 as rumored then man, where is the future for Canon

well there is plenty of stuff from canon that is worlds better then your 30D´s......

if you wanted to update.. what are you waiting for? 50+ MP, ISO 512K, 128 AF Points?

I did not buy the 7D last year ... or the previous year ... because it did not offer me a significant improvement in terms of image quality - in short, I do not like the sensor. Now the rumour is that there'll be no new 7DII this year. Why? (Because they're probably trying to improve the video performance - which I do need, want, use or have any interest in.) Same with the 60D ...

But yes, I'll go "full-frame" when it's at +40MP ... i.e. not the current 8MP APS-C equivalent.

well i wonder how you guys survive in the real world.   8)

you can be disappointed with canon but hell.. please do a reality check from time to time.

panasonic nearly sold the camera biz last year and is still struggling.
so the real question is.... for how long will panasonic keep making cameras?

Nikon seems in no hurry to replace the D300S, which looks like a dinosaur next to the 7D and despite what you read on this forum, Canon's current 18 mp sensor can still hold its own against the newer sensors.

Hear hear.

Nikon are still selling the D90, and that can only mean folk are still buying it!

I've got little to complain about with the 18Mp sensor.  Took great photos for me in 2010 and still takes then today, in my 600D and no doubt in my M when I get it (hopefully, interested to see the difference digic 5 makes)

I've read that the Nikon 16MP has more dynamic range, less noise, I've read that the 24MP APS-C sensor from Sony is something else.

But you know what?  I really don't care.  I can work my camera, and I can work PS.  The folk who lie awake at night dreaming of having 33% more pixels spread over an inverse square, wow!, thats like what? a 16x11 print vs a 15x10? 33% closer at full size view on your CRT?

And of course these folk who care so much about dynamic range also care about accurate filtration, nice glass lee soft grads to get even more out of that extra stop DR?

Listen, I've seen some of the work by some of the folk with the biggest technical gripes on here, and some of them even shoot with the best gear available, and yet whisper this bit, quietly, discreetly...  I think I'm missing something... it's almost as if some folks care more about Nikon and DXO than they care about the act of taking a decent photograph...

I entirely accept my limitations, and that of my gear.  My 7D is a much better camera than I am photographer.  I'm sure the 7D2 will be better again.  How much redundancy does one need?  Although if it has a headphone socket I might buy it.

The 7D was and remains a class-leading camera.  I'm sure the new tech will be swell, but I'm not going to sob into my pillow worrying about it.

go check you eyesight. ;)

I did ... the 7D produced - for me, at least - good, sterile images with absolutely no character. But then again, I think Zeiss lenses produce "dead" images. So there's no accounting for taste - bad, poor or whatever.

I'm glad I took the plunge and went FF with the 6D instead of waiting to see if I wanted the 70D or new 7D instead. I'm having a lot of fun playing with and taking pics with my 6D instead of more waiting!

Image that the 7D2 next year will give you the same 19-point AF with a tiny improvement ::)

Hmmm, disappointed, Yes and No...was looking forward to seeing images/specs and reviews sooner....

On the other hand my current 5Diii and 7D are doing me fine, at least now it leaves some financial breathing space to add the Fuji x100s, sooner than I thought..

I am not disappointed. If this means that the camera is going to truly be an upgrade, and a 1D-level APS-C camera as some rumors previously indicated (one rumor indicated the camera will be full-size with integrated grip), and if it means much higher DR, finally solving the shadow problems, and a weaker or eliminated AA filter, with 5D mk III-level high ISO performance or better, it is going to be well worth the wait.

But truthfully, only a handful of people outside of Canon know what the 7D prototypes are and how they perform so far, and they only know how that particular prototype they have their hands on works, not the other prototypes other trusted photographers are testing. In any event, if the original 7D's release is any indicator, the Mark II is going to be a fantastic camera.

<p>2014 will be the year for high-end DSLR cameras from Canon, consider this a down year for bodies.</p>


How do you figure the last line?  What bodies are due to be updated in 2014?  I can see a new rebel and a new 7D.  Maybe we get the "High MP" body.  But it seems last year was the year of the high end DSLRs with the release of the 1DX (announced the proceeding fall), 5DIII, and 6D.  I wouldn't expect those to be replaced until 2015-2017.

Anyway, this rumor just makes me happy that I went ahead and bought a 5DIII.

Yes, but the equipment helps.

On one hand, it's a disappointment, but on the other, it gives me more time to save up for what could possibly be my last crop sensor camera purchase.  You can see I have high hopes on this one ...LOL
