  • P.S. Canon said (about the new DO lens and flare):
    "The new DO takes a new approach, putting the paired DO elements close to the camera instead of at the outer end of the lens, Westfall said. The...

  • What I mostly notice is (i) lack of CA, it's spectacular for that, (ii) it's front heavy and (iii) the out-of-focus stuff has a particular look, I like it which is why I haven't sold the lens as I...

  • It's really a case of whether you can read all the pixels (in a 16:9 crop) out of the sensor at 24-25-30fps, or merge pixels on-sensor. If the hardware can't do that then you're going nowhere...

  • Canon make great sensors, their problem is digitising the data off-sensor throws away a chunk of the DR (example - 6D sensor has over 15.5 stops of DR, cameras has just over 12). However that's...

  • If you're counting on-sensor PDAF points you should compare the NX1's 205 with the 15,000,0000+ on the 7DmkII. Plus the 7DmkII ones can be used as part of the picture, you don't have to guess the...

  • The target users are out in a field shooting 10fps and aiming the camera by hand - WiFi is little use to them as it's too slow for the volume of data and will eat the battery.

    It's super-rugged,...

  • The 7D mk II is a specialised wildlife/sports/action camera with probably the best AF out there and a super-rugged water-resistant body. It also has an extensive range of high quality telephoto...

  • It doesn't look like there will be a high end Nikon DX camera ever again... They want to sell you FF. Also to compete it's need an improved version of the D4s' AF system, would they put that in DX?

  • I have a GH4, for its target uses it'll be a lot better, especially as it has access to a huge range of super high quality telephoto lenses. It's just a targeted camera, rather than a general...

  • (Actually I shoot spherical panoramas stitched from multiple images, taken with the same exposure, the darker areas need quite a bit of a shadow pull so you can see the scenery as they are...

  • Karl - surely you saw Blade Runner... everyone will need that for their Esper machines...

  • If you shoot action or stuff in the distance then the 7DmkII rules. Also if you need a super-tough weatherproof camera. If not the 6D has a lot of advantages (less noise, lenses are the correct...

  • The 6D is a nice FF sensor in a cheap consumer camera. The 7DmkII is a super-tough Sports/Action/Wildlife camera with superstar AF and high burst rate. If you want a crop version of the 6D you need...

  • The aim here is different and the video focus is targeted differently. The 70D is for making "ordinary" movies, so you can do focus pulls using the touch-screen. The 7D is for...

  • It has (well, should have) better AF than a 5DmkIII (in common with the 1Dx it has two DIGIC chips, also more powerful ones than the 5DmkIII). It's more a mini 1Dx with a slightly lower burst rate....

  • I find it a pain to carry a bunch of batteries around and try to keep them all charged up, always asking for trouble. Others may differ. Do remember you can only leave one battery charging...

  • Yohan - better when the Sun is bright and allows a more stable shooting position.
