On 'See Impossible': Canon counts down to... something. article (1665 comments in total)
In reply to:

cpkuntz: Apple has always had insufferable advertisements, but at least the company behind them makes products meeting contemporary standards of quality. They don't put Intel 150 MHz 486 processors in their iPad. Canon still puts ancient sensors in full frame cameras, leading to the laughable situation in which entry-level crop cameras from everyone else have better IQ than Canon's $3000-$7000 pro cameras.

Just compare the d5300 and the 5dIII on this website (via a7r page):

Of course quoting us dxo scores. 5DIII kills D5200 sensor in low light - your argument is invalid.

Donnie G: Nearly 1,000 comments about a corporate ad campaign from this site alone. Ha ha ha, LOL. Seems the teaser was very successful in reminding average people and businesses that Canon is involved in a lot more than just making consumer cameras and lenses. BRILLIANT!

Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, Ricoh and Panasonic cameras will be long gone before Canon turns into Kodak :p

Ron A 19: So much anti-Canon sentiment here! And yet, Canon offers the most complete lineup of any camera and lens maker out there and is the only company that makes a real profit in this business. If you want expensive "enthusiast" gear, there are many options that are compatible with Canon cameras. If you're a pro who makes money from photography, Canon is an excellent company. People on photo gear forums act as if images taken before 2014 are subpar in image quality. Rest assured, the new dual processor fast focusing 7DII can crush almost any other camera for sports. Nobody needs a gigapan image taken at iso 402k or a 1 kg 35mm lens.

I disagree - the 6 year old 5D mark II remains an excellent camera by today's standards, unlike other 6 year old cameras like the Sony a900 (no video, still too few good lenses) or the Panasonic G1 (12MP up to ISO 3200).

Canon is the only camera and lens maker making a serious profit these days. This is due in part to their incredible market push. This is a brilliant move - Olympus, Panasonic, Nikon and Sony camera divisions are all bleeding money, but Canon, with minimal innovation and lots of smart marketing is turning huge profit.

This is just plainly false.

On Sony shows off upcoming full-frame lenses at Photokina article (324 comments in total)

I wonder how this 35 1.4 zeiss will compare to the newly announced ZM 35 1.4 from zeiss. My bet is that the added AF and IS will make this a better bet, plus it'll likely be much cheaper.

So basically mirrorless is very close and a higher MP camera too. Awesome!

Ben O Connor: Its a beautifull 35mm F 1.7 Leica lens on a beautiful metal/leather body. And still complains.

4K.... what 4K many of you still has tv with tube and listening music via winamp !!! STOP COMPLAININ' !!!

LOL winamp! Ha!

Seems like they fixed the 23mm Leica T lens to the body. But is it a different lens? This one is a 1.7 and the other is a 2.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II First Impressions Review preview (1866 comments in total)
In reply to:

Valiant Thor: "Enthusiast photographers have been waiting in agony for a replacement to the Canon EOS 7D for five years."

Their agony must have turned to hopelessness, despair, depression, and maybe anger when they learned what Canon came up with for those five lost years.

I still don't quite get all this negativity. What else would you guys want in this new camera? Higher ISO? Wifi? In what way is it insufficient for pro needs?

Just look at the specs, this thing is a beast! Dual processor, 10fps at 20mp, insane autofocus systems (contrast and phase detection) and a 1090 JPEG photo buffer! It's made for pros who have specific uses, most sports photojournalists. For enthusiasts, $1000 less will get the similar 70D.

Seriously? This thing is awesome! It's basically a 1DX replacement for sports photographers and is 1.5X crop, which is perfect for action that requires a tele lens. What else could anyone need? I honestly don't know how they can top this camera.

That would be awesome! White box 24-105 for $300 :p And this new lens is probably better than the relatively old, high distortion L lens

Direct link | Posted on Sep 15, 2014 at 16:23 UTC

These are ok, but I was really hoping to see some new bright primes and some L replacements to counter all the Otus and Sigma action that's been happening lately.

On Fast and full-frame: Nikon announces 24MP Nikon D750 article (406 comments in total)
In reply to:

Ron A 19: Nikon seems out of ideas :(

I personally think that the camera makers should stop making new bodies and build more (and cheaper) lenses. That way, i can develop my system once I buy into it. Also, I don't feel like my camera is a piece of junk after 1 or 2 years. And the more lenses I have, the more likely I am to stay with that system. Just my thoughts...
