I'm generally tired of trying to judge image quality from photos that have a depth of field of about 3/4 of an inch. Please stop doing that.Shoot landscapes using 28 or 35mm at f8 please. Thank you.It's image quality (sensor resolution and dynamic range) were want to judge, not techniques to get 3d effects using blurred backgrounds. Let's stay focused people.
very disappointing results from both the lens and the sensor.
testing lenses at iso 2000?? whatever - sheesh.
techjedi: Hopefully this will reduce the price of traditional coated lenses.
You tried stand up comedy yet?
Who needs it ? - I mean seriously.It's just another attempted wallet emptying exercise - hohum.
tony field: The camera sounds interesting. I suspect that the common shooting will be done in APSH 1.3 crop mode giving a 30MP image. Use of 51mp will be used "where appropriate".
I will be curious to see of the R version will deliver better results with current Canon lenses. Of course, all current Canon lenses will produce "sharper images" with the 51MP sensor on the R or S versions.
Yes but you can't shoot crop mode in Raw mode.Jpegs only as far as I know. This limits the idea a fair bit.You can shoot M raw but you get the whole frame which means soft corners mostly.I'd want 1.3x mode for raws with the masking in the viewfinder for shooting - not cropping afterwards with "guess" framing during shooting.
Imakefoto4U: A rectilinear 11mm Canon L lens plus zoom to 24mm is something I have been waiting for. I have all the wide Canon Zooms and only the 8-15 is wide enough but it is not rectilinear. The expense and weight will be ignored if the results are superb.
maybe you should consider the 14mm. Much more practical, lighter, cheaper, faster, wide enough and very sharp. You could even get a used one. Not saying anything. Just saying.
Fazal Majid: The weasel language around the low-pass filter on the 5Ds R suggests an arrangement like the Nikon D810, with two mutually canceling filters, rather than the better arrangement on the D810 without a LPF in the first place.
he means the res is way past what the lens can do so any comparison, as you mention, is really unimportant.Why Canon didn't think 40MP was just grand is beyond all reasoning. Problem is bean counting marketers wants to fool morons for profit. Its so sad.
Gesture: EOS-M page only listed version 3?
Life as you know it will go on without any major or even minor hardships.
BigBen08: I'm curious, why isn't it on Canon USA site?
lazziness, lack of integrity, overworked employees, lack of passion, too busy texting friends during work hours, greedy webmasters with too many clients, lack of awareness, lack of communication and on and on - you know!... all the things that are dragging the economy too it's knees.
terence_boylen: Could someone explain why this is a big deal (no sarcasm)? Does DPP do anything better than Lightroom/DxO/whatever?
It does it better and for free. End of any sensible discussion right there. Unless you actually like adobe draining your wallet any way they can think of, then yak away.
ozturert: DPP 4.X is a parallel development with 3.X. I think development of 3.X still continues and 3.X supports all Canons.I think Canon will cease 3.X when 4.X supports all Canons.
Lot of peeps not keeping their comps updated and then complaining about spped. On a side note - I'm sure 60D support will come around - keep your pants on.
Suave: I sure hope they made it a bit faster.
Is your operating system a 64 bit version?Well how about this...ACR could be waaay faster and DPP could be more than adequately fast, if you had a faster proc (eg:i7) and a 64 bit OS and more memory - like 16GB. I have 32GB and top notch SSD drives. DPP is amazingly fast for what it does. Adobe can bite me with there regular cash infusions that they expect. Consider it as the real problem - not the programers lol.
This is fantastic. I can process files from all my Canon bodies in one great program. I'm loving it.Thank you Canon.
the only thing needs to be faster is your computer.
webrunner5: Why do people come on here and knock a camera they probably are not going to buy. If you don't like it don't buy the damned thing.
But don't mock people that want to buy one, or would if they had the money. Jesus, this site is just getting goofier everyday. Sony has just come out with probably the best camera 99% of the people on here could only have dreamed of 3 years ago, and all they could ever need and still knock it.
Go out and take a picture, which 95% of the people on here will never print, or make a penny off of and have a nice day. Its just a camera people. A darn good one at that.
A good analysis
Lower left corner has CA looks like at least 5 or 6 pixels wide.Lower right looks ok. Bad copy
I'm shocked at how poor the IQ is - have you checked you microfocus for accurate focusing?
This lens is apparently garbage - take it back to the store for a refund
