I'm looking at the specs of the just-announced 80D (45 AF points (all cross type), 27 of which will work at f/8, and (I assume just the centre point) down to -3EV). In terms of cross type points, number of f/8 points, and low light AF that's (on paper) better than the 5D3 and original 1Dx.

That surely bodes well for a 5D4; I thought they might use the 1Dx II AF system but, say, leave just the centre point at f/8, but it doesn't even look like they could do that now (otherwise it'd look worse than the 80D in that area). I guess competition is good for consumers. Who'd have thought it eh? ;-)a

Well, 80D is OT in this thread, that said, if in fact the spec is correct,

(lenses with maximum apertures of f/8 or higher, and some lenses with extenders attached may operate at a maximum of 27 points)
from Canon USA

the above would mean AF @ f/8 which in and of itself would be a big leap for the XXD line, and I have not seen specified.

This is more than likely a repost (since I'm always late to the party), but in case someone else didn't see it, this is worth a look.

It shows a 3-stop underexposure between pre-production 1dx2 vs. a 1dx at iso100. The shadow recovery is... dare I say it, Sony-esque. :lol:

Is it April yet? I need it to be April.

Indeed. My mind is blown. (Hm... no emoji for mindblown. They need to make one).

That actually looks to be at least 2 stops better in the shadows, just look at the section under the table, the 1DX starts to get the blotchy blobs of color, the 1DX2 is just clean. Perhaps this 2 stop improvement won't be seen across the board at the various ISO levels, but definitely in the DR arena where you start to pull up shadows. This is going to be an outstanding camera for wedding shooters, as well as landscape and architectural shooters.

Based on what I have seen so far, they are somewhat going to hide the information in the ISO settings - i.e. I think the base 100 ISO is actually 'underrated'. If you search for and pull up the 1Dx vs 1DX II pictures, the ones with the hockey goalie in the dark arena with see that new 1Dx II is swa lest lousy.


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.

I'm impressed that you can get that much info out of them.

I ordered in the first minutes after the announcement, well before their emails arrived. Still all I get is that I'm early on the list and that's better than I've gotten for previous pre-orders! :)

Based on Exmor sensor graphs, you'd expect a "great" result from Canon to show a couple of stops at ISO 100, then tailing off to where they were (and where Sony is) around ISO 800 (where read noise is no longer the main issue). I.e. matching Sony somewhat. You're not realistically going to see multi-stop shadow improvement at ISO 800 unless they've done something really groundbreaking.

Great images, but talk of pattern noise in shadows in high ISO shots doesn't make that much sense; by that time other sources of noise have drowned out the read noise issues (hence Canon being competitive at high ISO even with their "traditional" shadow problems).

It may just be that they've improved noise across the board (though if he was using jpegs then it may partly be better noise reduction in camera).

Is CPS of any benefit for the amateur like me...never made a penny off photography and dont plan to
but have a few EOS bodies (T2i,6D,7Dii,1Div) and several whites (300/2.8,400DOii,500/f​4)....
Reason I ask is I plan to add 1DXii this summer.

The silver membership isn't all that expensive. CSP does a great job of turning service requests around really quick. They do an outstanding job of cleaning, calibrating and repairs if necessary at a discount over non CSP owners.

I was a member before I started making money as a photog. I've always found CSP to be a good value and insurance policy for all of my gear.
