Re: more

and maybe to add some further thoughts here - see also the 135 f/2.0 on the 5D II vs the 85 f/1.2 on the 50D - even if you add here 10 -> 15 % linear resolution win for a probably higher resolving future crop DSLR, crop has no chance even though the 85 f/1.2 is almost double the price of the 135 f/2.0

When it comes to quality the FF wins hands down at the primes and at the zooms - and yes - a decent wide angle zoom lens is missing for FF but hey - there are plenty of excellent wide angle primes and a 14-24 is rumored too. BTW - the highly praised 14-24 Nikkor on the D800E losses against the TS-E 17 on my 5D II - especially in the corners of the frame - so quality wise I am not sure whether I'd like to have a wide angle zoom at all - my TS-E 17 is just unbelievably good from corner to corner - so any zoom will have a hard time to convince me

BUT there are rumors of a 7D II with APS-H sensor - make it 24 Mpixel at 8 fps and I will buy it immediately for sports and action on my 300 f/2.8 II - that would be nice to own!! That would translate into 70 MPixel with my TS-E 17 fully shifted and four frames stitched - sweet!!
