tinternaut: I think Canon users have been waiting for a long time.
I had a look at that post... and had a laugh with Joseph Black! How many times did you seriously need to increase your exposition by 5EV?? The maximum I've done in my life was about 2EV. All of the initial images are extremely heavily underexposed! If they were exposed correctly the difference would be definitely much less visible. And again, you're comparing a 21Mp camera of 2.5y ago with a brand new 10Mp camera!"I cant understand why people praise 7D"? I can. When it was released was a great camera that had very good performances and quite a lot of innovations. That was 5y ago. Can't stand from IQ point of view with camera released now? Really? I wonder why...
Alec_c: I'm voting with my pocket rather than with comments. Waited long to get a decent prosumer camera. No such in sight so switching to mirorrless. OOps, Canon has no good offer. What a pity! Maybe my (and others') money in competition's pockets would take the snub self-satisfied smile from Mr. Maeda's face.
Same for me. I don't shoot sports or very fast actions but I never had any issues or complains with the 6D focus points.
Have you ever used those cameras? I mean for real photography and not for laboratory tests...
Honestly that's a bit excessive. No "decent prosumer camera"? Ever tried to use a 6D for instance? Or the new 7D mkII if you prefer crop? Come on!
jwkphoto: My first digital camera was the Digital Rebel (300D) which I got 11 years ago today. Great camera and I still have it. I updated to the first 5D in Jan. 2006 which gave me beautiful full frame images. Fast forward to May, 2008. I had three jobs to photograph on Sat, the 17th so I got the 5D out to check it out to make sure it worked. On the fiifth frame, the shutter button fell apart with only 8,000 frames on it. The shutter still worked but with a half second delay and it would not focus. On Sat. I had a horse show, a high school reunion and dance school recital. I could use the DRebel for the reunion but not for the action photos because of the slow shutter lag. I ended up buying a Sony A300 because I had lots of Minolta lenses. The A300 has a very short lag and I got good action photos. It cost $250 to get the 5D fixed and I sold it on EBay. I've had Sony cameras ever since and never a problem and I'll never buy another Canon.
I'm using canon since 20years and I never had an issue with any camera... all of them are still working like new, same for the lenses. Maybe you were just very unlucky with your 5D...
Zerg2905: Oh, you all are still here?! I have left yesterday evening, and to my surprise now I see...more than 750 comments. Wow... What a waste of time, in my opinion.P. S.: dealers have started to offer the 7D Mk II with the BG E16 grip for free - sounds like a good offer (almost 300 EUR saving), can make the camera (even) more attractive...
Sorry, it's not a waste of time... some of the comments are really hilarious and I have a lot of fun reading them! :)Ok, on the other side it's a not very busy day at work...
Peter Gurdes: only way to make them realise how we feel is adding a comment and THUMBS DOWN on their youtube videos:
128 thumbs down against 21 thumbs up now... I hope the message is clear...
jcunwired: Out of 731 (now 732) comments, I'd bet not one of the posters (posers?) owns Canon equipment but most wish they did. Just thinkin' out loud here...
Just have a look on my equipment list and you'll see a lot of very nice Canon stuff. Still, this marketing bulls*t is really stupid! As I already commented they should fire some marketing guy and hire some good engineer!
Valiant Thor: Congratulations Canon; first time my bullsh*t-o-meter hit 9.9 this year.
only 9.9? I'm wondering what does it need to score a full 10 out of 10! :)
Couscousdelight: Many thanks to the Canon marketing team for the good laugh of the day.
Please, Canon, please, fire some marketing guys and hire some engineers!!!
Petrogel: What is really amazing, is that we haven't seen any "in depth" review from Dpreview personnel of any of the Leica's latest products. Either Leica is paying a Lot for it (not to review) or the "personnel" have nothing to compare this overpriced crap with.
Either-way this is an overpriced crap.
As far as I know this is only Leica, not some kind of rebranded Panasonic like the Leica D-Lux.
joyclick: why not put in a film cartridge and film transport levers and .....revive film photography a la fashion industry cycle?
Here you are! Just announced! http://en.leica-camera.com/Photography/Leica-M/Leica-M-A
RStyga: To complete the joke we need the price:http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1083146-REG/leica_10779_m_typ_240_edition.html
To be fair, I have to admit that it is a beautiful choice of design and materials, though, for a collectible.
It's definitely a collectible items like all the other special series... I don't think many of them will actually be used to take photos!
magneto shot: LCD'less is one of my wish list. My other was setting a possible shots of only 36,64,128. Limitations such as these gives u all the glory and film shooting experience, makes u a better photographer definitely without the fuss of film development.
Turn off the LCD of any DSLR and get a very old CF or SD card... is it a big issue if that would limit you to say 34 or 42 shots instead of 36?
MPA1: I've been after a camera that only uses the LCD for menu access forever.
However I want it to have AF and 10 fps too, so it won't be this one! I dread to think how much it will cost. EDIT I look it up. Rumour has it that it will be GBP12,000!
Uhm... I simply turned of the "automatic preview" on my DSLR... isn't that enough?Get the Canon 7D mkII... looks like to have everything you want for a much much lower price than any Leica! :)
Ozyxy: an announcement of a screenless camera without a picture showing the back of the camera!
Google for a photo of the back of an M3 and I guess you have it!
I would say extremely good, if not extraordinary. And the fact that the fuji 35/1.4 cost about 500€ against the Leica 35/1.4 at 4200€ and the 35/2 at 2700€ makes them even better!
pseudobreccia: Why would anyone want the Leica X when the Fuji X100S is on the market?
I'm actually wondering if all of those who don't like the x-trans has actually tried one (I mean with recently updated raw converters and not the ones available when first the sensor came out...)!
JEROME NOLAS: I am just waiting when Fuji drops the "retro look...."
The retro look looks just great to me!If you don't like it there are a lot of other choices (Fuji XM-1?)...
