Why would the viewfinder coverage Lessen over the mark ii ? 98% atm, to 97% ? More like it should go up.... or at least stay the same.

I can't really figure Sony out. A mate of mine is one of their UK 'advocators,' and I have obviously got my paws all over his Sony flagship and been baffled as to why it is as such, but despite wading into Canon's and Nikon's sales, seem to completely lack any ambition. Their lack of Super Telephoto glass is striking, as is any equivalent of a 1D/D3 body. I appreciate not everyone needs a body built like a tank, or insanely responsive AF, or Super Telephoto's; if you were a news agency, or an ambitious free lance planing on all things, which system are you going to buy into?

OK, they have AF Carl Zeiss lenses which is a big plus as a selling point, they still lack Canon's and Nikon's armada's of across the board glass, which is something they don't appear to be at all concerned about addressing. All in, i'm not even that impressed by their camera bodies to be honest, but mid table that may just be what i've been seeing from Sony users I know!

Agreed, one of my best photography buds shoots an a100 (which he is starting to bemoan the age of, given ISO400 on it looks like my ISO1600 and theres hot pixel hell with long exposures and such that drives him batty) I will give that the Sony and Minolta glass definitely has a nice character to it, and the bodies themselves tend to have their own unique "draw" to an image...

Agreed, the Alpha system lacks super telephotos except in the used market, and the used ones go for absurd amounts of cash (I think a used 600 f/4 for instance goes for almost as much as a brand new Canon 600mm f/4L IS ffs...and it doesnt have a SSM in it! You could easily get a used old Canon 600 for less..) and heck even normal lenses, like the 200mm f/2.8 HS come to mind, currently selling for around a grand used, When you can get the equivalent Canon or Nikon lens for less than that (Though I will tip my hat, that lens is stonking awesome, even on the 24mp A900 FF sensor it practically matches the sensor at f/2.8...but still its a lot of cash...)

They also lack a long macro lens, and some of their lenses are -baffling- (Their 28-75 f/2.8 for instance, which is the Tamron 28-75 f/2.8 with a built in focus motor, is also $700 or practically twice the cost of the Tamron! double ew tee eff!)

And I even question Sony's commitment to the Alpha system with the NEX system on the market, is Sony truely going to stay comitted to the Alpha system in 2-3 years? Especially if the E-mount is more profitable for them and probubly a little larger market (Going against Olympus, Samsung and Panasonic is possibly easier for them than going against Canon and Nikon, Sony is selling to consumer persons as opposed to photographers where their brand recognition means something) Sony also has stated pretty bluntly they do not want the professional market, at all and do not care about the pro level stuff....From what i understand their service is pretty craptastic too and certainly not on the level of Canon or Nikon professional services....

The NEX system also holds a lot of promise if they correct the lens situation and offer a more advanced camera for people who want some power...both seem to be things Sony is doing (Theres some good lenses rumored, including a 40mm f/2 OSS pancake...Which sounds quite awesome, and the 24mm f/2 Zeiss) and the rumored NEX-7 with its integrated viewfinder and twin dials will hopefully correct that..

My predictions based on past product cycles.

5D Mark III will ship December 2011.

7D Mark II will ship before December 2012.

1D Mark V January 2013.

Single digit EOS bodies have a three year product cycle.

Seeing as how there has been no 1Ds MkIV,. I can buy the theory that there will be only a single 1D body, that will be full frame.

The question is, will it be the traditional $4,500.00 launch price pof the 1D (since the MkII version) or will it be closer to the 1Ds?

Somewhere in between?

My gut tells me it would remain closer to $4,500.00 as the premium for FF is falling.

I simply can't see either Nikon or Canon coming down off their 'traditional' flag ship launch price without a cheaper, action-focused second pro body; even if it is full frame this time round (which it's going to be). It would cheer up newspaper editors everywhere if technology comes full circle and once again grants us full frame sports photographs shot at super fast frame rates as opposed to the crops of the last ten years. But the 1Ds4 will obviously cater for a different market at much richer resolution. I reckon August is announcement date

Can we add a dual card slot to the 5DIII? :)

I predict that before the end of the year we will see a combo 1D/1Ds with either both a FF sensor, & a 1.3x crop sensor factor, or a straight FF sensor. It will have minimum 8-8.5 FPS, 1,200,000 (or thereabouts) res rear LCD screen, video, and dual CF card slots.

The 1DIV was announced at and still sells for $5K.
So, it seems that Canon is establishing a new tradition here – and I can bet that even a newer tradition is awaiting us when the ‘merged’ 1DV is announced :mrgreen:.

The 'merged' 1DV will be announced at $5.5-6K, IMO.

I'm unsure on that truthfully

It would be a cool feature, and Nikon's been going dual card slots on their recent bodies, but im not sure Canon willl

Sorry all for being away, I had surgery and im still recovering

Still going for no merger this time round and a 1Ds3 replacement at 1Ds3 launch price (or thereabouts)

No 5D3 or 7D2 announcements until well after new 'flagship' is available.


bye for now

Why should Canon bother with a replacement of the 5d2 when it came out after nikon's d700 and sony a900 were on the market? Both of their successors are not even announced yet.

Keep on waitin' y'all! :lol:

There will be no 1dsIV. This model line will either merge with the regular 1d or superseded by the 5dIII which btw will have dual DIGIC processors running Android OS and will be in black only. One of them is untrue. ;)

One reason why I'm thinking there will either be a straight 1Ds Mk IV, or combined 1D Mk IV/1Ds Mk IV type body is two fold...

One, my own prediction, and secondly, and likely more noteworthy something I read on the BPN forums.

World renowned professional wildlife photographer and Canon shooter, Charles Glatzer was asked if he'd traded in his 1Ds Mk III in favor of the 1D Mk IV. This was his response:

"I have 2 MIV and my 1Ds III. I love the 1Ds III IQ, but for action images needing the
fire power the MIV is the ticket. Wait till you see what comes out before
years end
."

So putting two and two together, and with someone of his stature possibly having some sort of "inside information" it seems only logical to think that a "combo" 1D/1Ds series Canon camera with the resolution quality of a 1Ds, AND the firing rate of a 1D is rather imminent.

At least that's what I gather from that last statement of his.

One can sure dream and hope!
