God I hope they don't do something stupid like that. they need to get rid of the EF-S system and go all FF sensor in all cameras

I can't see that happening. There would be no more "entry level" dSLRs if it did... they'd all be too expensive.

That's not any issue.
The percentage of people who think we world will cease to exist as we know it, if they don't have a full frame camera, are greatly over-represented in a forum like this one.

In the real world, there are many APS-C customers.

EF-S on an Extension Tube would fit on a FF body ( I think), why you'd want to do that is beyond me (unless upgrading bodies and no cash left for that 24-70 2.8 )

What extra reach would that be exactly?

Quick quiz- In the current Canon line up, what body has the least amount of "reach"?

Answer: The 1DIII


Huh? The 1DIII isn't full frame?

why would canon make the canon 5d3 accept ef-s lenses? i thought the ef-s was specifically designed for the aps-c sensor cameras. i mean if you want a lens that is 100% compatible with a ff camera, why not buy an ef lens? i mean if i wanted a lens that is compatible with all canon cameras i would save up the money instead of settling on a lens that is only compatible with the aps-c cameras. this whole debate is like being able to use diesel in a car that runs on gasoline... yeah it would work but can do a lot of damage

To entice people to upgrade to a FF camera and keep their EF-S lens line-up. Marketing wise it would be a good thing

Nobody said it was...

My post was in response to someone saying the APS-H format gave more "reach", which it does not. In fact, none of the 1D APS-H cameras have had more "reach" than their 1Ds FF counterparts. "Reach" is a function of pixel density, not crop format.

True, but most people look at what the uncropped image looks like when printed in the same format, and then APS-H does have more reach than FF, as it will record less of the subject, when using the same lens.

I hope Canon does not waste their time making it capable of using efs lenses, seriously how many people that actually have a 5D want to use efs lenses? they are better off spending their research money on something much more useful

there is not one efs lens I have any interest in owning and I am willing to bet the majority of FF users feel the same

I'm not sure if this is how it works on the D700, but in theory on the 5DMK III, FPS could be improved when using an EF-S lens since it wouldn't have to process as large of an image.

If they could bring it up to the speed of the 7D when in crop mode then it would eliminate the need for an extra camara for someone who shoots sports as well as portraits.

Anyone mention there's only something like 6 EF-S lenses in Canon's lineup and that they're not all that spectacular except for maybe 2 of them. Why would you buy a crop camera to use two lenses? Why?


My village called. I was told that they missed me.

Speedotron users, untie!
