Nice review. Thanks for this
I am on the fence and to be honest your review has put me off the fence
I have been playing with the ESOr's at best buy and camera stores. Came close so many times.
I too have photographed over 575 weddings in the last 14 yrs. So, What is continuing to keep me from pulling the trigger is what you have mentioned !!
1- I dont like how this camera moves focal points around. I thought it was me. Glad to hear others feel the same way. It needs a dam joy stick. I feel like I would be looking at the back of the dam camera, trying to find the focal points, instead of watching whats in front of me and being on auto pilot.
2- I cant get past the camera not having dual cards.In the last 14 yrs I have lost 2 cards to corruption issues for weddings. Both times I was on 1D bodies and the back up cards had the files. I know this has to be weighing heavy on your mind. For weddings, I just cant go there because its happened to me twice. What are you going to do If you loose a card ? I just cant imagine
Things that make me want to pull the trigger and buy
1- I think its a perfect studio camera and we own a studio. Im ready to pull the trigger several times
2- that 50R....OMG...what a lens
3- The adapter- you have confirmed what many have said
4- AV use---DAM YOU- I am an AV shooter and I shoot exactly as you do. The images look great. Im betting these are close to straight off captures.....This makes me want to go out tomorrow and pick one up.......but back to no dual cards and weddings......what a bonehead move on Canons part. They probably would have sold millions by now if it had dual cards
ALL this said....Hind sight being better than foresight.....would you have waited for a dual card body and a joy stick if you knew it was coming on next release ?......I might be willing to live w/o a joystick but I cant get past dual cards. What are you going to do if you loose a card?
As a 1Dx2 and 5D4 shooter I have everything i need..best cameras I have ever used...But dam...that 50R and that new 24-105R...those optics
still stuck in Washington
