What is your Canon wish list ?
« on: May 02, 2017, 12:51:38 PM »
For me, I have been carrying a PnS as companion to my DSLR, starting from S95 to G5X. G5X is really great as I can use my existing flash system to boost its usability. However, I still dream of having a low light performer as my companion camera. I am looking at M5, but at the same time wishing that Canon would release a mirrorless FF sooner, not a MILC but a Canon Mirrorless FF with 35mm fixed lens (like the Sony RX1, but not with Sony brand) someday.

Well, what is it that you wish from Canon for your personal desire instead of what Canon should do for surviving the competition ?

I wish for the $ to buy products they already offer.  (oh, and the 600 f/4 DO and the $ to buy it)

A list? I can get to choose more than one?  Ok. Assuming normal genie rules here are three.

1. That Canon stop mucking around with different product names in different territories and stick to the European name formats (eg 100D not SL1) everywhere.   The 77D was a step in the right direction in terms of an integrated EOS nomenclature :)

2. A consistently sharp 24-105 lens

3. EF 50mm f/2.5 Macro USM   (with ring light, FF version of the new 35mm lens and replacement of the f/2.5 macro)

Cameras: 5DSR, A7RII, 5D III, EOS M6/M5/M3, Mavic Pro, DXO One.  Oh, and more lenses than I care to count.

1. 50mm f1.4 L IS   :'(

2. 5DSR updated 50MP @ 5fps sensor with same iso range of 5D4 and a "crop" mode for 25MP @10fps   :o

3. Native EF mount M5   ::)

4. Hard lens cases instead of those soft pouches   >:(

1) 7D III with newest sensor tech, user-friendly wifi/bluetooth/NFC and even more mini-1DX features;
2) 200-500mm f5.6 zoom under $3,000;
3) SL2 that goes upscale with latest sensor tech, better autofocus, etc. Somewhere between a 70D and an 80D in features, but small and light for hiking.

A very personal wish list, but nothing unreasonable.

1) a mirror less 6D2 with 60FPS burst....
2) a 500F5.6 lens
3) a 20mm F1.4 with no coma....
4) a new SX-70 to replace my old SX-70...

I am not holding my breath while I wait....

1) a Canon EF-S 14/15mm f/2 IS prime, as small as possible & either STM or USM auto-focus is fine.
2) a Canon EF 50mm f/2 (or faster) IS prime with USM AF
3) a Canon 7DmkIII with 12 FPS with incremental improvements in sensor image quality, DPAF & optical AF with articulated 3.2" screen & connectivity.
I am very happy with my current gear... but Canon, If you deliver on the above 3 you'll have my money for these as well.
I appreciate using my Canon DSLRs along with a host of lenses & many accessories to capture quality photos, and share with friends.

I want an SL2 "R" with a 50MP APS-C sensor.

That or a mini 5DS.

Only two things:
A new M5 as a replacement for the used one that arrived at my door step today.
A 600mm f/4 DO that is no heavier than the 500mm f/4L II

I think Canon is doing just fine with the competition market-wise.  Or at least their fiscal disclosures point in that particular direction and have for years. 

but for a wishlist:
7DIII - something in the 30-35mp range with 4k video and cLog.  Dual cfast or at least upgrade to the latest gen SD UHS III just announced in Feb (1sdu3 + 1cfast).   I wouldn't complain about 12fps and maybe on-sensor IS.   A slightly wider AF spread with a few more selection areas.  USB-c with power over USB-c so you don't have to use a battery adapter.  (USB Type C can carry 100 watts of power, so you could theoretically run the camera and charge the battery in the camera while operating it.)   If they go Thunderbolt 3, it would allow video transfers at bus speed across the link and since the spec can handle 4k at 240hz... *shrug*  By 2022. 

What we'll get: SD UHS1+CF, 25-27mp, 1080p video, 11fps, USB 3.0 and a release date sometime in 2023. Canon is nothing if not conservative.  And I'll probably buy it or go with Nikon's D500 replacement (for once.)

In order of likeliness to materialize  -

1) EF-M 55 f/2 IS STM to compliment the 22/2 as a two prime solution
2) EF 300mm f/4 IS DO
3) FF ML 6D like camera that's light and compact but with SLR like ergonomics
4) Canon drone with EF-M interchangeable mount camera

For this year or the next:
1. EF 85mm f/1.4L IS
2. EF 50mm f/1.4L IS

Both with the BR optics.
F/1.2 on both would be even better.

Then a EF 135mm f/2 IS with BR

I think my life would then be complete.
5D Mark III, Canon A-1, Voigtlander Vito, Tamron SP 15-30 f/2.8 Di VC, 24-70 F/2.8L II, 70-200 f/2.8L IS II, 35 f/1.4L II, 135 f/2L, Helios 58 f/2 (x3), Canon FD 50 f/1.8, 600EX-RT (x7), Streaklight 360ws. Jumping ship to SoNikon any day now.
