Leandros S: Good up to 87mm, definitely soft at 155mm. Skin tones tend to look posterised at full size. Most shots I looked at were ISO 100 f/5.6. Stopping down might help at the tele end, but if higher ISOs don't keep up, it might be a camera for bright daylight - as the samples and other commenters suggest. I assume the lens narrows down to f/5.6 quite early. f/4 at 11mm is sharp. I tried downsampling to half size (to just under four megapixels), and I'll say at that size and ISO 100, most won't notice the skin tone flaws unless they know what they're looking for. ISO 400 (polar bear) looks good at 1/4 size (1 MP), ISO 1600 (bouncy castle) you have to take for what it is - acceptable for documenting personal events but not for your portfolio.
I agree wholeheartedly.
graphikal: The illustration of negative space is not a compelling one. Nor is the model and horse picture a good example of use of the rule of thirds, a rule that tends to turn out boring photos anyway when slavishly applied by newbies.
''You know, some people find no usefulness in composition rules. All they want is to shoot their cat at ISO 25600...''
I agree. And it's telling a couple of posters didn't mind admitting they know nothing about the rules. :)
On the complaints about the ''hand'' I didn't find it distracting at all. The hand wasn't cut at the joints or the wrist. And notice how the baton anchors the hand to the scene.
Parsek: Great news, very interesting camera. Can not wait to see results.
PS: Canon needs to outfit all future dSLR's with swivel screens.
If I'm not mistaken, after the introduction of the 20Da, a few weeks later another model came out. Could this mean a 70D soon?
Can the 70D be far behind?
If I'm not mistaken when the 10D/20D? astro came out, the ''normal'' version appeared a few weeks later. It has been quite awhile for the 60D.
