QuoteOh, im just griping about everything. This is part of the decision process for me.
Been there, still doing thatQuoteAnyway, it looks like I may be sticking with Canon for another more generation. As much as I'm "willing" to switch, after doing the math on what it will cost to get me the equivalent Nikon setup then I'll stick with my more affordable Canon lenses.Hrrm, $350-ish (21%) more for the 24-70, $75 more for the 50. Annoying, but adding up the percentage difference of a whole setup, I'm not so sure that the gap is a gating factor any more. Before Canon's 20% yen/dollar markup it was bigger.
Nikon 24-70 f2.8 - $1700 new / $1500 used
Nikon 50mm f1.4 - $425 new / $375 usedQuoteBTW. One thing to note about the 60D's shortcomings is that several of these "missing features" are firmware fixable. So as much as people hate complainers, whining does serve a purpose here because 60D vs D7000 comparisons can swing back to Canon's favor if they unlock some of the stuff they intentionally crippled.
In theory, yeah, but yet the 5D2 still lacks a wider EC range than +/- 2 stops, lacks 5-exposure bracketing, lacks aperture bracketing. Those are all straightforward to code, yet Canon can't be bothered.
The 5-shot thing is probably because most people with the 5D2 don't need/use bracketing because they prefer to "get the shot in one."
You can't just "add" +/-1 EV because things like the LCD screen on top and electronic display inside the viewfinder have +2..-2 hard coded into the device.
But we don't need 5 exposure bracketing, just the +/-3 ... It's not hard to set the camera to a certain combination of settings and then just turn the dial 2 or 3 notches after every shot.
