Anyone else want a cropped sensor?
« on: February 09, 2012, 04:34:33 AM »
I realise I am in the minority, but I am NOT currently in the market for FF body (not that I wouldn’t like one, just I have not got the glass or the money), but am dieing to replace my banged up 450D.
So what do folks think the next cropped bodies will be like? Is there anyone else out there who wants one?

I have only crop lenses so far and I want a relatively small camera, so I am one of them  ;)

I expected the 650d (the camera I have been waiting for.?) for the CP+..

A used 40D is very good value for money

I'll second that.  The only thing that would compel me to move up to something more modern is video & focus calibration.  The viewfinder is quite good for a crop camera (though not as good as the 7D).  The interchangeable focus screens make it a snap to add a Katz Eye for manual focus lenses.  The AF is better than the unit in the 5DII & 6+fps is pretty fast if you need speed.

If you've got the scratch, the 7D is really a very good camera.  There may be a 7D MKII announced at Photokina this year (or maybe CES next year, who knows), but don't let that stop you if you need a camera now.  Prices have really come down recently.

Yes, i want a cropped sensor... a 7D mk2 that use a APS-H sensor ( cropped :) ) and the ability to use EF-s lenses.

You have plenty of cropped bodies already on the market for sale at very reasonable prices. 550D 600D 40D 50D 60D 7D

All of which are significant upgrades to your 450D and would more than meet your requirements.

The majority of us are after a small bodied full frame with more than 1 useable AF point - is that so much to ask canon?

Ever since buying my one and only crop camera, the 30D, I've been pining for a return to full frame. Now I finally have a 5D2, the answer to your question is a catagorical NO!

Very true. My point was that cropped bodies are well provided for at the moment where as those after a non gripped full frame with more than one useable AF point are not.

There are a lot of great crop bodies that are cheap upgrades from your 450D... the 60D or 7D are fine examples... heck even the T2i or T3i are a nice bump. 

I think with the advent of the improvements in the Sony NEX and some of the other cameras in general, the Crop Body is heading towards more of a Prosumer line and the 7D goes away into the 70D

Know that is not what some what to hear, but I can see with competition, there is a blurring of differences between Crop and Full Frame in terms of body performance and can't see Canon or Nikon really selling two cameras with very similar attributes other than one FF and one Crop.

I also have a 40D and I do love it for taking soccer pictures. I am considering the 7D now that prices have dropped. However, I really want a cropped frame that has excellent ISO so I am going to sit tight to  see what new cameras are released this year. If Canon does not come out with a new cropped frame, I will move up to a FF that has better ISO.

I have a 50D and I have great prints on the wall from it, so I'm not worried about sensors or sizes.  I will benefit from better ISO and DR of course, but the most important upgrade for me will be AF.  I'm waiting to see what the 7D2 brings.  I'd have gotten the 7D but my wife would have killed me... waiting keeps me out of the doghouse.

I feel there are plenty of people in the market for crop sensors. some of us just don't have the money to leap to FF, others want the reach, and I'm sure there are others who have other reasons.

Personally, I don't consider the 60D or 7D cheap with my budget, so I am holding out for a 7D2 or a 70D with features like the 7D (micro adjust, AF and 2 axis level being the big items for me). My Budget could allow for a 5D2 at the current prices but not any adequate glass to go with it, plus I don't like the idea of spending so much money on something that will in all likelihood be replaced soon (personal preference, the 5D2 is still a wonderful camera).
Canon XTi, AE-1 Program, Rebel II, Tamron 17-50 VC, Zenitar-M 50/1.7 and a bunch of other cheap lenses (50/1.8FD, 18-55 EF-S Kit, 35-70 Kit, 80-200 4.5-5.6). S100 classic.
