Not nice of them to not have support for the 400, 500 and 600mm lenses.

I think the new AF system, esp for live view and for video shooting is a big leap for this camera. If it's as good as the marketing is selling as it is then it should be good for what ever mirrorless camera that canon brings out.

This is what excited me most about the 70D announcement. If some iteration of the dual pixel live view focus makes its way into a new EOS-M, Canon will have a strong contender against the NEX.

When you're shooting stills in live view, you're often using manual focus anyway. And it's not a rival for mirrorless cameras because it lacks the two things that make mirrorless cameras attractive in the first place - small size, and small lenses.

Everyone goes on about the sensor is the most important part that always have to be an upgrade from the last generation. Canon isn't going to come out with a new sensor unless it knows for sure that it meets their own high standards.

That's the problem - Canon hasn't had a sensor upgrade to its crop line for the past four years, and, in the full-frame line, it's basically been stagnating at around the same level of capability. A level of capability that, even four years ago, was behind the competition.

So in all this flood of blogs posts and potn posts, did they announce MFA?

What I'm asking is were the naysayers in this thread wrong, and I, right? :lol:

I haven't seen where they've changed the sensor technology to give cleaner images. Only the Digic 5+ and different algorithims for jpeg noise reduction. According to what I've read they're only suggesting ISO's equal to that of the 60D. Is that what everybody else is seeing???

There are now two photosites per pixel, which, if they are read independently, should average out the read noise and reduce low-ISO noise.

^^^ I saw where it talked about the two photosites per pixel but it really didn't mention noise levels only in the terms that it would be similar or close to the 60D with a slightly bigger pixel density (20.2 vs 18). I think most here were hoping for better iso levels and that's what Canon was originally touting but this sounds like the same. I could be wrong and I hope I am.

I'm psyched about the video AF.

To me, 'high ISO' means 200, while 400 is 'very high'...

Ahhh, but to me it means 2500 - 5000 for shooting sports in gymnasiums and football games at night. 7 fps is fine for speed, 19 points is fine for focusing and most cameras have good enough noise levels up to 800 for me but I'd like to shoot at 3200 at basketball games to get a decent shutter speed.

It's only the two-generation old variations of those lenses that are unsupported.

What kind of setup do you need to receive photos from this wifi, assuming you don't want or can't run the provided software? With eye-fi you get plenty of other http servers doing it.


My imagine composition sucks. I need a heavier lens.

what new sensor performed worse than the sensor it replaced?

The 18mp, when updated with the on sensor phase detect originally, took a hit in raw high ISO performance. =p
