The R mount is also part of the EOS system.Somebody forwarded me some chatter today that Canon is considering replacing the regular EOS bodies with the R mount system. This would now be the second time that Canon screws me over with a new mount.
If true I'd like to sell my gear and save up for a Leica. What would my stuff approximately still be worth at this point?
Canon 5D Mark II with grip

AFMA can be used to correct for "all of the above."i think you have to call these something different, out of focus is a different issue, a lens is designed to focus at a set back distance for its type, a broken or mis-performing lens is not this issue this issue is about the mirror whether other problems can be solved by the same solution does not make them the same problem as it may not appear on two different cameras where as a lens fault would and it would not affect resale as its a natural phenomenon of SLR cameras
No one is conflating any such thing. In the previous discussion the possibility was raised that the upcoming 80+ MP R body would be a mirrorless equivalent for both the 5Ds and the 5D Mark IV with no plans by Canon to release another 35-40MP R body for those wishing to move from the 5D mark IV to the R mount. Kind of like the 1D X replaced both the high speed APS-H 1D Mark IV and the slower FF higher resolution 1Ds Mark III. That's the context of the previous comments you're responding to.Why do you keep conflating that this is the upgrade for the 5DMIV not the 5DS/R?
This upcoming camera has always been portrayed as the replacement for the high megapixel camera, not the general purpose pro camera. The 5DMV and the equivelant RII will more than likely come outjust before christmas next year, or in spring of 2021. I personally think it does show the interest in the R system (& mirrorless systems as a whole) as people are doing mental gymnastics trying to justify buying this when it comes out early next year instead of simply waiting for the RII, which will most likely be released at the same time and on the same rough release interval as a (possibly final) 5DMV.
All "pixels" in a raw image file are single linear monochromatic luminance values. There's no more color information there than if you put a red, green, or blue filter in front of a frame of B&W film.Maybe I haven't understood debayering correctly: For me it was giving e.g. 10 Megapixel (2.5 Red, 5 Green, 2.5 Blue, millions) sensor the 10 full color Megapixels in the image by extrapolating the color signal of all pixels to their neigbours to give them some cull color information.
Some color adjustment is surely necessary, but I think this is much easier than calculating full color image pixels from single color detector pixels.
True. My bad. 40% of the file size reduction will unlikely reduce post production efforts.Rendering time is usually based on the *uncompressed* size of an image. Most image editors/viewers work with the raster image with full values for each pixel.
How much does the EF 100mm f/2 cost? How much does the Zeiss Planar 110mm f/2 cost? How long has that design been around, by the way? (Hint: it's been around a lot longer than 1991.)If I look at the Zeiss planar which has a very good reputation, it has macro at f/2 so this is possible. The EF f/2 100mm is an "old" lens introduced 10/1991. If I look at the design of the EF-M 32 there should be some progress in (1) new glass types, (2) new aspherical lens possibilities, (3) new methods of optics calculation. You are right, it is not easy, but I think it would be possible @ 1200-1400 EUR on RF mount - maybe to much for some hypotheticel target group.
The lenses that you're not getting any points for have all been discontinued and usually replaced by newer versions. The older lenses that you are still getting points for are still in the current catalog and have never been updated (other than the EF 70-200mm f/4 L IS that was only replaced by the EF 70-200mm f/4 L IS II a year ago, so the meter is ticking on that one now.)I'm in the U.S.A. and using the Canon USA site.
The points values don't make a lot of sense. There must be some other method they're using to calculate points. For example, I got a full 8 points for my old Canon EF-S 10-22mm that I bought with my Rebel XTi! Yet as you correctly stated, neither my 16-35L or 24-70L (both original versions) qualified for a single point. I also got 8 points for my original 70-200 F4L IS, but the F2.8 version doesn't get a single point. I have no idea what methods they're using to assign points.
Pretty much anything i focus on has this backfocus. For my tests on a tripod i focused on Things that had other objekts behind them, so i could see if the object behind was actually sharper than what i had focused on.What kind of target are you focusing on? The AF target should be flat and exactly parallel to the camera's sensor. If you're trying to AF on a tilted target, it's probably just a case of the area of sensitivity being larger than the size of the AF "point" displayed on your screen.
Okay Michael, I'm big enough to admit you got me on that one. Let me rephrase."
I'm not picking an argument with you, just making a statement. There is nothing wrong with overkill, might not be for everyone but if you only want 1 camera to do it all then a high MP camera can."
So how about shooting 10+ fps for sports/action/wildlife in motion?
No single camera can "do it all" as well as other cameras can for specific purposes. High MP cameras are specialized tools, just as very high frame rate cameras are. More general "all purpose" cameras balance the suitability for most use cases somewhere in between the extremes of the specialty cameras.
Okay. I should have consulted an archaeologist. But I do not believe Canon rates the current R as a pro body, so I don't think the RII will be either. A new name will be given to a pro FF mirrorless.Dunno what you are talking about. My 5D2 has a single card slot and less than 4fps burst rate.
Sorry, I was not clear about f/2 planar, I meant this one (EDIT: english version of lens description for convenience :How much does the EF 100mm f/2 cost? How much does the Zeiss Planar 110mm f/2 cost? How long has that design been around, by the way? (Hint: it's been around a lot longer than 1991.)
But beyond that, the Zeiss Planar series is not nearly as well corrected for field curvature as the Batis and Otis series are. The Planar was a well corrected lens in 1896 when it was introduced. It's a slight variation of a standard double Gauss design, same as the EF 50mm f/1.8, EF 50mm f/1.2 L, EF 85mm f/1.2 L / II and a ton of other prime lenses in the 35-85mm range (for 135 format cameras). The Zeiss 110/2 is a medium format lens with a field of view about the same as 50mm cropped to a square in the 135 format.
Raw files do code color information because the positions of the pixels are coded in the raw files and connected to r, g and b filter"lets". Shurely you need the information about which pixel/ADC value is filtered by which color (red, green blue) to reconstruct color information and therefore you need some piece of software. So the Bayer pattern is some approach to have alle three color filters at the same time but not at the same pixels to make "one shot color photography" possible.All "pixels" in a raw image file are single linear monochromatic luminance values. There's no more color information there than if you put a red, green, or blue filter in front of a frame of B&W film.
If you can figure out the CPS point system, you are a true genius!They do here in Canon Netherlands, according to my CPS account.
I rarely spent more than five minute in there before I had kids. Now the "library" is a retreat. Turn on the exhaust fan, and it's like a white-noise sanctuary for as long as I can get away with it.I'm a quick worker in the, ahem, library and rarely spend more than 5 minutes there.
Beyond that, I can read the text transcript of most videos in about 1/3 the time it takes to watch a video. Why waste time when I can be learning three times as much in the same number of minutes?
