Not posted for a while, but after having my 80D for almost 4 months now ive realised im not going to use my 5Dmkiii much. In fact since getting the 80D ive more or less gone over to EF-S lenses rather than use my bigger and heavier my L lenses, although my 70-300L is still my fav lens.
I come to the conclusion that the 80D is a step down as far as IQ goes, but i can happily live with that. My 18-135STM has replaced my 24-70 f/2.8 II as my walk around lens, and ive now got a wider starting point with my 10-18 STM than i ever had with my 5DMKiii. Im not going to get rid of the L glass, its still the best, but im a lot happier with the extra versatility the 18-135 STM brings for daily walks etc.

Anyway, a few recent 80D shots.

how close were you to the bees?

Pretty close. 6cm/2.5" from the front lens.

I found this moth literally on my doorstep when I came home today:

One reason I chose the 80D over the 7D mkii was the flip screen. Today, this shot was so much easier than past attempts since I didn't have to get on my knees to try to focus. I'm sure a few more pixels don't hurt either.

I'm still getting use to this camera. I had the impression that the new Canon sensor has improved alot. I'm finding ISO 3200 is a nice limit in semi challenging light.

I hit the streets of Vancouver to give this camera a go......

I'll have to say I haven't touched a canon crop since the 50D. The 80D handles well and is very responsive. I do admit the touchscreen and swivel LCD is nice. Sometimes I almost feel as if i'm using my Panasonic GH3 in the way the body handles with virtually same swivel lcd etc etc....

I basically purchased this body for video duties. It handles rather well and I was quite shocked that an xxD body is this small!!

Post processing requires a totally different approach compared to my Canon FF. I do feel the IQ is not exactly where I thought it would be to be honest. The Fuji bodies I own to my eyes produce a much nicer RAW file with my fuji 16mm f/1.4 prime compared to my 80D w/ 24Lmk2 ( 38.4mm equiv). Even after micro adjusting I find the fuji to be more rich like what I'm accustomed to with my 5dmk3/mk2 bodies.

I take more effort in squeezing the most of the IQ I can with the 80D raw file. All in all I am pleased with the bodies performance but the high iso RAW files falls apart much sooner than my 16mpx fuji bodies.

If you go to settings and turn the sharpness to 0 and add it in post it helps the video IQ a lot.

I agree the RAW files are very flat. There is a lot of info in said file however. Im still learning how to make the most of the RAW files myself.

I'll agree....

The years I've had the 50D I was taking that body as "it is what it is".

I purchased the 80D blindly to some respect. I did my research on DP AF video and that was my main concern. When I purchased the body I literally looked at it closely for the first time. As I handled it at my local camera shop I said "huh is this a rebel????? " I never realized the difference in size compared to a 5d2/3.

I think I still need a tad more time to adapt to the files. I still haven't done much video yet. I did not buy the nano 18-135 kit lens but now I'm thinking I should. However now I'm researching on isolating my rode mic's so I dont pickup the AF motor noise on my L lenses. I really want constant aperture video with AF. Now I'm attempting to plan a diy rig so I can hold my rode mic's........

I've shot with a 5d2/3 for so long now that I'm just so use to their RAW files. As I've adopted Fujifilm bodies I will definitely say the RAW files are not sophisticated in compression but the IQ from Fuji's crop sensor is "WOW" compared to the 80D RAW files. Playing with the 70-200 f/2.8mk2 with the 80D is nice but what has shocked me is that my Fuji 16 mpx body with substantially cheaper 55-200 f/3.5-4.8 zoom has more rich files with less shallow dof compared to canon combo.

The 80D is still a strong tool in my tool kit. The RAW files still have good data in it to manipulate to produce very good files.

Hopefully people reading this do not think I'm slamming the 80D. I'm just sharing my experience with a different crop sensor I'm familiar with. The 80D with my 16-35mm or 24-70mm has produced great files but there is such a big difference between Canon FF and even my Fuji Raw files. The images I produce with my Fuji has fooled me in how it has an organic film like look with a full frame like meaty RAW file. The brand new 80D I just bought is a big jump from my 50D "thin" looking files but still it's not lush like full frame or fuji.

Check out this VW bus that's been converted into a trailer!! I'm pleased with the photo. If I used my Canon FF or Fuji this would seem like it has more data to play with in LR6. Nonetheless the 80D did a good job documenting.

So far I am disappointed with what I am seeing from the 80D :/

I think its going off the list for my new potential cameras

try one for yourself. I love my 80D, but I am also not impressed with what others are posting. They just aren't using it to it's potential. Once you go shoot for yourself and see how the raws handle, you might change your mind, if that's even what your issue is.

Blake please show us your files (select ones that you feel represents the Canon 80D and these files do not need to be from clients)......on my IPS calibrated monitor my files in Full res (not reduced) looks pretty good but not close to my Canon FF or fuji 16mpx files.

Blake i really want to see the way you process your files. POTN limits file size to 10mb and I've been uploading 2048 long edge so my files are small. I do not see a huge following for the 80D just yet. I purchased the 80D specifically for video but I'm working hard to see how much I can push the 80D Raw files.

My 5dmk3 with 85Lmk2 is eye candy....my 80D is not equivalent in how it utilizes that glass. However all of my L glass with Canon crop is quite good for a crop. Without a doubt my fuji crop sensor is still a massive jump in IQ to my eyes.

PJmak, test a Fuji X-T2 if your thinking about a different capable camera with very pleasant looking files. Sony A6300 is also a different system that will give you punchy colours and contrasty files. I'll have to agree and say buy / rent your own 80D. If you compare a Canon 6d Full frame to an 80D you'll see a massive difference in ISO performance and lush RAW files. The difference is the 80D will capture more images better in faster moving subjects. The next step would be 5dkm3 (new 5d4) or 1dxmk2. How much $$$$$$ do you want to spend????

I will have to say today I've taken a lot of photos with my 24Lmk2 and it was fun!! The Video capabilities of this camera in 1080 suites my needs perfectly!! This is what I bought the 80D for............

I dont know what I want honestly. With black friday around the corner and the 5d mark 3 orices going down fast, I really am confused.


I dont wanna rush into it. Not having any experience using any of those cameras doesn't help either.

I do have to say from watching and reading reviews, the 80D falls short in image quality and video performance

For still the 5dmk3 would be a great choice. However dont ask the camera to perform good AF in video.

The 80D AF excels and the stills is good. ISO performance is OK but to push it hard in low light your not going to rave about it. I find iso 3200 and properly exposing in low light you'll get good detail. The 5dmk3 destroys the iso performance of the 80D by a large margin. Just think Sony/nikon is much better.

If you have no loyaties look into a D750 or D610 or D810.

If you want dlsr video with good AF the 80D is extremely hard to beat due to dual pixel technology. The Nikon D7200 is a much better stills camera than the 80D but that's the Nikon dark side :)

Just you wait......... once the fuji X-T2 hits the market you'll see a lot of heads turn. The 18-55 fuji kit lens is extraordinary for an inexpensive variable aperture lens. Fuji primes are simply amazing (in most cases).

I haven't seen a huge percentage of photos from the 80D that is comparable to a FF. My personal fuji files I will say have shocked me in how good they are........(to my FF files)
