Anybody going to get one to try out? It's fairly cheap, $799.
I have a Canon T4i. This is a perfect second camera, especially for video.
I am in the process of paring my 14+ Canon lenses down to 5 or 6.
I am going to go with the 22 2.0, 40 2.8, and 85 1.8 for primes. (From: 24 2.8, 45 TS-E, 50 1.8, 85 1.2, 90 TS-E, Contax 28 mm)
For zooms, I am going with the 18-135 STM for video, along with the 24-70 2.8 II (for absolute highest quality on zoom, I use that lens 80% of teh time), and the 70-200 4.0 (sold the 70-200 2.8 II because it is so heavy.)
I am very happy with the T4i. It has basically the same image that my $8,000 Canon 1DsII had in 2004.
Yes, the Exmor has a bit more DR at lower ISO's. But if you are posting in sRGB mode you are never going to see it. Even with prints you are compressing the DR beyond what the Canon captures, much less the Sony.
I am perfectly happy with the Canon sensors. I have been a pro photog for 30+ years, retired now so downsizing to prosumer level.
Great tools we have today! Now we just need a few video firmware tweaks this fall, either from Canon, or Magic Lantern.
