panther fan: I don't know about US law, but people view etc... could get you in some legal troubles in europe.

Everyone you photograph, so not only your client, but probably also other wedding guests for example would need to sign something so you would be allowed to upload the photos to adobe.
Not sure how Adobe wants to address this problem

ya think.......?

I wonder how many people who comment negatively about this test would be prepared to put their money where their mouth is and try it themselves, in the air, for real.

Those that would be prepared to do that, then better they are prevented from doing so, for their own sakes: same as you don't let someone drive a car even if they think it's perfectly safe to do so after drinking alcohol.

Toselli: I have an objection: while shooting a quadcopter to a wing in theory is the same than a wing hitting a static drone as far as mass energy and damage, I think that leaving out aerodynamics changes a lot: a wing moves an insane amount of air, making turbulences that would make it incredibly difficult to hit the wing in that position.
In fact how many times did this happen in real life?

so you'd be confident on that basis sitting in the plane yourself to try it for real?

DigitalFFUser: Colors should be either neutral/accurate or eye pleasing .. but they are none ... I don't find them eye pleasing nor they are accurate. Too much red cast!!!

My D850 produces the cleanest most accurate colors at ISO 64 that I set to my liking in LightRoom/Photoshop.

colours were certainly different between Canon and Nikon when I shot film......

paul simon king: I like the 100% VF on my *old* FF Canon amongst other things: I just cannot see the point of FF mirrorless .

is that what you think photography's about?

JJSo: I wonder if I have to put the bag down to the ground if I want to access the stuff? Every picture shows it's down. I'm sometimes hiking in a muddy environment and would not feel comfy if I had to put the bag down for each lens change.

same here- not so much mud but lots of wet sand!

My priorities are:
Small compact rangefinder style
Fast af
Small very high quality lenses

That’s it

Nikoncanonfan: I just don't get why people are so bothered about using existing lenses. I couldn't care less about mine. Don't you want nice new superior lenses optimised for mirrorless? You can sell the old ones or keep them to use with your old cameras. I have a pile of EF L lenses I won't have any interest on compromising my FF mirrorless Canon with them...

pros on a budget- buying mirrorless.....Hmmmm

The only reason I would buy any Canon Mirrorless would be if it was very significanltly smaller and lighter than a DSLR. None of the current Canon mirrorless interest me in the slightest as there are apsc Canon's that are already very small and light and have all the advantages of a DSLR over mirrorless.

So if they're going to do a FF it would need to accept current WA lenses, otherwise there's really no point AFAIC, and be really super small and light (for a FF)

The IS is brilliant on my current Canon lenses so no need for IBIS which would just bulk the body out.

What I'd really love is a FF and a dedicated 35 or 50mm exceptional quality small lens

In other words something akin to a Leica but without the stupid price tag

wow - that means that crop circles exist already all over the planet, and it's actually the weather that brings them out!
Wow - I never realised!

I think the subscription model makes sense if it's your business but if not then, for me at least, it doesn't. However I can't knock Adobe for doing what makes them a profit. I could live without Photoshop but love LR,.

All the same I'll never subscribe, I just hate that payment model, so when LR becomes unworkable (probably when I buy my next computer which will no doubt have incompatible software i.e. MacOS 12 or something) then I'll learn one of the other programs I've already bought just to help fund them develop.

I wouldn't mind paying Adobe for perpetual licence upgrade but they don't want that so someone else will get it, but that's no skin off their noses.

It's just the way things go, no use grumbling about it, adapt and move on is my motto

In reply to:

Joed700: I'm glad I sold my version ii and got a good price on it. The 70-200mm f/2.8 has always been Canon's strongest. The price is right on the new lens compared to both Nikon and Sony's. I'm really hoping this new lens will bump up a couple notches on the resolving power against the 5Dsr.

the optical setup is the same as the old lens on the 2.8 so other than flare there'll be no changes in resolving power
