naththo: If I were you as a Canon Fan I would buy that 7D MKII over 7D. A huge improvement. I don't understand why some people think it is same as 70D in sensor performance, pffft 7D MKII is a pro camera, 70D is a toy to compare! 7D MKII got dual core processor thats great for sports shooting seriously!
@naththo,are you telling 70D iis a toy? You are insulting Canon, thinking that you are praising 7DmkII . 70D price is THOUSAND dollars. Cannot Canon make any better than a 'toy' for $1000 ?
If you think tough built of 7DMKII is superior, I agree with you, but it is unnecessary burden for people who prefer lighter cameras.
Also people like swivel LCD, which is really convenient. However, people cannot use it for BIF kind of situations, as they need to see through optical view finder.
So overall, when it comes to speed and speed and speed the 7DMKII is worth it. Otherwise 70D is by far much better value.
wassim al malak: peace for all .
PLEASE stop negative complains .let's concentrate on the positives and discuss it , let's evolute our skills , let's enjoy photography , let's enjoy those new cameras and specs .
photography is an art , photogrpher must be at the high-end of the morality and positivity .
it's about depth of feelings
@wassim,You are correct and just perfect.I understand it is me only.I cannot help 'peace' reminding me of group of men proudly killing innocent people and women covered in long robe watching it.when I was innocent young man, the word 'peace' reminded me the face of Budhdha in meditation, a sun rise in beach. Now things changed.
Is it only me? that feel uncomfortable when the word 'peace' is used?whenever someone says 'peace' I cannot avoid glimpse of killings,fully covered women flashing in my mind.
The wait is not over.
May be this camera will make 70D sales to increase, because people may think waiting is pointless and 70D is better value.
gskolenda: Come on Canon from a video perspective, This is Crap! No Time lapse, No Wifi,No Slo-mo FPS, Limited codecs! I'm still buying a GH4 twice the camera, and 4K to boot! I don't want tohear about who needs 4K, If your thinking that, then you don't understand 4k's benefits!
what are 4K s benefits, when we know it is going to take too much memory in camera and difficult to upload in youtube?
Are there other benefits ? if so, how can i get them when downsizing ?
sir_bazz: Where's the Direct Print button?
Deal breaker right there.
Scorehound,I think sir_bazz is sarcastic.
quiquae: Given that this is a zoom and not a 600mm prime, I wish it had a somewhat shorter MFD. (I know it isn't trivial.)
also tjere raises the question.. what is minimal focusing distance at 600mm, if 230cm were for short end?
So, this is all Canon has for this photokina ? already Canon is lagging behind. OR did I miss any canon announcement news?
bottom line:will retail at $7995.
Branko Collin: If I've learned anything from some of the arm-chair lawyers in this thread, it's that Lensrentals.com must be filthy rich by now because of all the copyrights that automatically devolve to them every time someone takes a photo with rented gear.
I am amazed 5 people liked Branko Collin's comment.
If we extend Branko's logic, all photos are owned by Canon Inc, Nikon inc, Olympus inc etc and the photographer is monkey.
Looking at the quality of photos, I conclude that: "on average, monkeys are better than photographers"
I hope it is not a service recall announcement for all cameras sold in India. :-D
Yannis1976: Would be interesting to compare with similarly priced m4/3 zoom kits e.g. G6+14-140mm or Oly+14-150mm. Also there is no mention I think about macro performance.
JordanAT,20lbs + back pack you carried and 2 lbs FZ1000 you want to carry are your preferences.Smart people might choose something decent between, about 4 lbs. if you don't want to discuss about DOF, fine the cleaner iso capability will make APS C dslr a better choice.
Which 18-250 kit lenses are f/2.8? -- irrelevant as FZ1000 is not F2.8, a APC-C sensor will have a shallow DOF even with smaller aperture , and has higher iso capability to compensate lower light available and lower noise side effect.
skimping 30-50% on the long end -- 250 * 1.6 x crop factor > 400 mm zoom.
What light you buy back with the larger sensor you throw away with a dark lens, and any detail you ends up getting thrown away when you have to crop to the center of the frame -- these should be tested and proven. Not claimed just.
I have no doubt that FZ1000 will perform very well in such comparison. But the colors, smoothness will be poor.
yeah.. all your photos are very severely photoshopped.. i got it..
superb composition.. how did you take it?
wkay: So on the studio comparison someone tell me why on the right side of the image the FZ1000 looks better while on the left side the RX10 looks better? DPreview cant align the cameras in their studio?
this was asked weeks back, and they told "due to lens complexities cameras are likely to have one side sharp and another soft".
Absolutely... This camera should have been tested against a 18-250 lens & APS-C SLR.
