Re: Vote for Your Favourite Canon Gear of 2016

I am waiting for Canon 200-600 mm since patent filed. not sure if it's coming even in 2017 :'(
It's not mentioned in the voting options as well. And why Canon 90D???

Was the Canon 35mm f/1.4L II manufactured and released in 2015??? I thought that it should be on the lens list....

Re: Vote for Your Favourite Canon Gear of 2016

why is 90D on the 2017 list is beyond me. the chances are 7D is going to see a refresh before xxD does.

Re: Vote for Your Favourite Canon Gear of 2016

I voted for the 5D MKIV and the EF 24-105mm f4L IS USM II (have this now on order) at a recent Canon CPS day.
For 2017 Im looking forwards to the 6D MKII the current camera is my go too travel & difficult terrain landscape camera, the wi-fi & GPS set this camera apart in 2012 along with its low light abilities.

Re: Vote for Your Favourite Canon Gear of 2016

I dare say the administrator has his reasons for including the 90D. The XXD refresh cycle has become considerably longer lately- it used to be less than a couple of years. I expect to at least see some 90D rumours popping up before the end of the year.
And then what comes next? obviously not the 100D ;)

Sony A99II (Allround)
Sony A7SII (Lowlight)
Canon 1DXII (4K 60fps, Video Autofocus)
Canon 5DsR (Resolution)
Nikon D810A (Astro)

Canon 8-15/4 Fisheye
Sigma Art 12-24/4
Canon 16-35/2.8 III
Sony 24-70/2.8 GM
Nikon 70-200/2.8 VR FL
Canon 100-400/4.5-5.6 II IS
Canon 200-400/4 IS +1.4EXT
Sony 24-240/3.5-6.3 (Allround)

Voigtländer 10/5.6
Voigtländer 12/5.6
Zeiss Milvus 15/2.8
Zeiss Batis 18/2.8
Zeiss Milvus 21/2.8
Sigma Art 24/1.4
Zeiss Otus 28/1.4
Canon 35/1.4 II
Zeiss Milvus 50/2 Macro

Nikon 105/1.4
Zeiss Milvus 135/2
Sigma 180/2.8 OS Macro
Nikon 200/2 VR II
Canon 300/2.8 II IS
Canon 400/2.8 II IS
Canon 500/4 II IS

Nikon 800/5.6 VR FL

Canon 17/4 TS
Nikon 19/4 TS

XXD was 2 year upgrade cycle now it seems like 2.5-3yr upgrade cycle. Also Nikon has another 6months(atleast) to upgrade their D7200, I dont think canon will be in hurry to upgrade 80D for another year atleast.

Re: Vote for Your Favourite Canon Gear of 2016

Not on the list but I'd love a refresh of the MT-24EX. Something that facilitates an easy way to diffuse the light without resorting to frankensteining the flash heads

Re: Vote for Your Favourite Canon Gear of 2016

I voted for the Canon 80D.

The reason is simple: I have it and is is a superb camera for my use (landscape, architecture/buildings ans occasionally aircraft and birds). Before this I had the 70D, and the 80D certainly is an improvement.

Perhaps that is why I do not understand the mentioning of a 90D in the list..........

Re: Vote for Your Favourite Canon Gear of 2016

One of my votes was for a 90D in 2017, only because 7D iii wasn't an option. I would like to trade in my 7D for a new 7D 3 with wifi built in and not a card that fits in the sd slot and I want a articulating swivel screen. If I'm worried about rain I can flip the screen closed and use a rain sleeve.

Except it's not your website, so you don't get to decide what the survey should be about. Canon Rumors guy already decided the topic and parameters.

Yeah, let's all move to North Corea so we can all have the same opinion! Diversity sucks! Would make business for Canon easier as well.

As usual, you miss the point. You are welcome to have whatever opinion you want...it's just that your opinion is irrelevant in this case (and many others).

Re: Vote for Your Favourite Canon Gear of 2016

I went with the 1Dx2 and the 600mm DO, but was uninspired by the choices for lenses. The 4 stop vignetting in the corners of the 16-35mm f/2.8L III is too horrific to earn my vote. I ended up going for the EF-M Macro as I thought it was an ingenious idea. Seems to be a pretty good performer too.

Looking at the small amount of comments to this "Canon only 2016 Vote" post, most forum users seem to think the concept of it is not too exciting, too. Voting for the best of any brand and from any time would be more helpful for future buying decisions.

Lol. More likely, people are just voting on the main page and don't feel the need to comment.

Why don't you go start your own website and forums so you can make better polls? Better yet, since you clearly know so much more about making and selling cameras than all the current manufacturers, why don't you start your own ILC manufacturing company. Since you've already predicted doom for Canon in 2017 by 2019, you should easily be able to drive Nikon, Sony and the others out of business by then, too.

Or are you just an armchair quarterback? All talk and no action? Yeah, that's what I figured.
