km25: The images to me a bit noisey. It low is performance is middle of the road. It would be nice if they offered a nice low light model. But the big thing is lens. they need a road map bad.
A lens road map with a mostly zooms is either weak and/or new. They need some sharp fast primes. But if you want a high MP APS camera, the camera is a very good choice.
Now you start claiming about the moviecapabilities of the Fuji because you're out of arguments, too. I read the whole thread and I think you just recently purchased a NX-1 and now want to defend your decision. If you can live up with your system it's ok. But to nag on Fuji, Canon or Nikon won't make you a better photograph at all. A good photograph doesn't care about his equipment as long as it serves him to work flawlessly. I've seen Pulitzerhonoures pictures made on even worse cameras than a 10 year old Canon or on a 5$ cam from ebay with a recent filmemulsion.
When I look at your galery you should not worry about your equipment at first.
NaumFilm: The camera does not work without the lens (((Who connects lens adapter lenses canon?Who has experience?
Yes, Samsunglenses are better than from "Canikon", that's the reason why everyone uses them professionally. All hail the emperor.
It seems there is no way for fanboys to enjoy a good camera like the NX-1 without peeing on someone else.
Sdaniella: ... next step ...Canon TS-EF 11-24mm F4 L IS STM !:D
11mm TSE equals due the larger lightcircle to an 11mm mediumformat lens. 11mm@MF is about 6mm FF equiv (645 or 6x6)... this will most likely never happen :)
Ben O Connor: An Olympus Cameras
- Compact as XZ-10- Raw capable- Sharp F 1.8 zoom or sharper (F 0.95 !!!!) single focal length (24 or 35mm ) Zuiko optic- Has to have at least swivel screen or hot shue, while has built in flash ! (as in GM1 of GF7)- Underwater housing and stylish (yet affordable) leather/copper accessories. - Useful video (by built in IS or 4k or something else which is useful!)- Around 499-699 €£$
That would be an awesome replacement for my XZ-1, even I own a GM1! I would buy it.
There is nothing, was, and will never be something which ever beats a bright, real, optical Viewfinder! This is something which can't be measured on reviews, which can't be seen directly on testcharts but the photographers knows...
EVFs are like alcoholfree beer, feels like something real, but it taste like pee. ;)
Stollen1234: hmm i thought Sony has the best sensors on the market?? then why this new camera is getting only 80%??!!
haha funny Sony
No, I compared the technology, not the price. The A77 II is 2/3 of the price for the Canon 7DM2 (not 50%) but the Autofocus is not on par with the the 7DM2 with only 15 crosspoints and the body is not near the quality of the 7DM2. It has even no Dual Slots... so you compare the price of a pro and a consumercamera. Canon tried SLT technology 15 years ago, there were no advantages. People see the advantage of the sensor on DXOMark, but not that 50% of the light got lost before it even reached the sensor ;)
Battersea: I hope Canon starts shopping there.
@falconeyes. I second that. They should improve their fabs to compete with Sony or Toshiba... but sometimes people forget how small the Camerabody-segment is in the whole company. So, the pressure on the company is less intense, I think. For Nikon it's important to keep the pase to survive the game, they have nothing except of cameras... so they switched to different vendors. Canon is a little bit too selfimpressed, maybe they will get the payback soon (but not from Sony, but from Fuji in my opinion).
Anyway, I still enjoy using some of my older cameras. For example, I'm always impressed what an old 5D is able to do with 12MP@Fullframe.
Edit: The Sony A7S came back to this old magic formula ;)
@hippo84.Your pronounced SLT features like phase detect AF in video and LiveView, no mirror shake, 12fps, EVF and so on are *all* gone by now. What resists is the loss of light. For example, Canon has the DPAF for phase detect AF all the time, has 12 fps and even the mirrors are getting better all the time (less noice, no vibration). EVF is a disadvantage for me, but if I *would* need one I use anything attached to the HDMI or look at the screen.
Since I've shoot on film I live with the drawback of the digital sensors in general ;) But fun aside, of course there are drawbacks on the Canonsensors, but I think the screaming is quite overdrawn. And the DR-haters gonna hate, in every forum, any time.
If you shoot at 10 frames/Sek into the light just to pull up the shadows then we have a different opinion about photography. But that's ok. I think Canon should improve massive on the DR, at least 2 stops should be possible without any great inventions, but to nag on it all the time is quite boring. They will work on it, I think.
Sometimes I would like to know what kind of pictures you shoot if you permanently run into 13 stops or more ;) Maybe the engineers of Canon were too busy with the fabulous 100-400mm L II, 8-15L or 11-24L. Something we can't see from Sony. The lenses are a shame.
I think Canon has different priorities... but always remember, 99% of the buyers are not pixelpeepers at DXO/DPReview ;)
@falconeyes. Interesting way to see a camera (sensor/film), but I think on a digitalcam the sensor is an important part of the whole equation. And there is more than just Dynamic Range, there are colors, Autofocus-technologies or different demosaicing. Furthermore I think a living competition is better for all of us.
Because they *can* compete, they just compete on other edges. If you carefull look at the Sony A7S you will notice the DR of the A7S is quite lower than on the other A7 Models. So it seems that an improvement on ISO has impacts on DR. This is also true from ISO800 and upowards. The "advantage" of >13 stops get lost after a few stops when the lower light is used. Now on the typical Canon-Pro-customer (maybe a 1DX with sport-reportage) this is more important than some DR-Range on ISO100, because you often use the higher modes. In fact, the DR of the Canon is *better* than any Sonysensor >ISO800.
Even if, and only if, you care about the last stop oif DR, regardless of the lenses, the whole system or the abilities of the DPAF-techology you can choose another camera for this purpose like a FoveOn or a D810. This trolling about DR is quite nerving and it's not ybout protecting Canon, it's about understanding compromises in engineering.
@The Jacal. You're welcome.
G3User: BUT, Nikon's 14-24 is a 2.8 lens. Enough said. What a joke of a lens Canon!
Clearly you don't know what 11mm is and why you would need it.
This would suggest AF on a TS-lens. Patent pending... ;)
I guess he is sad with the nikon-lineup ;)
MustyMarie: This guy is one incredible bike rider - search youtube and you can see his awesome stunts and skills!
Found out about him several years ago and was so envious !!
He really is, but doing this on an eclipse for pictures is for me a bit of attention whore.
ZeneticX: Canon is like Apple now
they don't give two sh!t about the competition because they know no matter what products they roll out, there's a solid base of loyal customers that will buy them in an instant
@Thoughts R Us I understand your point of view, but apple was nearly dead before Jobs came back, I think this tells you a lot of his importance as a person. Don't forget that innovations from today were planned 3-4 years ago. So we still live with his fingers in the current profile, I think. What was invented after the iphone came out? Making it bigger or faster? Building it in 25 different colors? What was invented after the iPhone came out? The coloured display?
I think they are on their cenit now, but time will tell. It's not the baddest thing to get a bit down to earth I think. And you didn't mention the projects who failed like the iMac, the whole Apple TV idea or the Maps-project.
mpgxsvcd: “At some point 8K will come for that reason, in the future there will need to be one product that will satisfy both needs.”
He isn’t talking about Canon here. He means that some other company will do this.
For me it sounded like "we missed the 4k-hype, let's jump over it... we come back with 8k". But maybe it's just my reading.
Luckily I'm not interested in video at the moment, so this touches me "nada"...
Aur: The dismissive attitude of the competition outpacing them is sad, it's very reminiscent of Nokia.
Saying they would use better sensors if anyone made them, Sony and CMOSIS sensors have way more dynamic range, some have global shutter and they're generally simply better.
Saying they provide enough lenses. Carl Zeiss their Sony lineup have all brand new lenses with MTF charts that easily beat Canon's offerings.
"Carl Zeiss their Sony lineup have all brand new lenses with MTF charts that easily beat Canon's offerings."
Haha, you wish. They are just average. You should read the comments about the 24-70f4 for example. The best optics keeps Zeiss for themselves, call it "OTUS" and make them available for the *really* important mounts. The lenslineup from the Sony/Zeiss Coop is a shame for it's pricetag.
Edit: f.e. http://www.photozone.de/sonyalphaff/867-zeiss2470f4oss
Except of the buildquality this is quite a optical desaster for a "Zeiss". I could give you quite a few examples, but you can find them by yourself. I think this is some intermediate stuff in a Zeissbranded body.
