I have to say that is quite impressive.

It appears better than my 6D and in a different league to my 7Dii although I don't have scooter to do direct comparisons.;-)a
Do you prefer lightroom for raw processing over canon dpp?


Thank you.

Short answer: I'd expect you'd see a solid 1 stop high ISO improvement vs your 6D.

Long answer:

My perspective: 7D (mark 1), 60D, 80D, 5D3 and 5D4.

The full frame sensors should have about 1 stop of high ISO noise advantage over APS-C, due to the fact they have over twice the surface area.

The more recent Canon sensors (probably starting around the 7Dii) have much better noise character - so even if they were not quantitatively better, qualitatively the noise is less objectionable.

For me, the 7D (mark 1) and 60D were good at 1600, just about ok with a decent exposure at 3200, and ISO 6400 was a last resort. In comparison, I'd judge the 80D as nearly 1 stop better (for my personal taste).

It's the same story with the 5D3 vs the 5D4. ISO 3200 was fine on the 5D3, with 6400 being OK. 12800 was usable, but pushing your luck. For me, the 5D4 is (for practical purposes) 1 stop better, and even ISO 25600 is usable.

I have prints from the 5D3 at ISO 25600, but the gap between the 5D3 and 5D4 at this setting is quite remarkable. From what I've seen, the 5D4 is closer to the 1Dx2 than the 5D3.


Camera, some lenses, too little time, too little talent

Wedding season is in full force for me

This new 1Dx2 makes my Job easy. The sensor is spectacular for highlight and shadow retention

Off camera flash and you get straight off camera images like this. A little topaz in the sky and ship it

Best camera I have ever touched

Remember: shadow retention is the camera. Highlight retention (well, preservation) is your finger.

I like the resulting photo :-)

Very nice! You used just one off-camera flash? Which one and where did you place it?

They aren't as hot (vmadvmadvmad) today as they were yesterday (sony just released a firmware upgrade to turn off the Camera Running Hot symbol on their latest greatest A9). I think we just found out why putting a large battery in a small, unvented, metal box, and running hot, can cause issues.


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.

But Jason Lanier's Sony cameras never ever ever ever overheats. Never. :lol:

I have no horse in the race so I find this all very amusing.

I figured you would run off and sell your pride and joy for a bottom basement price. Boy was I mistaken.

Wow no love for Sony in this thread!
For fun today I shot with my oldest Canon tech lens, the 28-300L today on an A7Rii and had a blast with it. I
was really surprised at how well it focus via the MBiv.
I do think amateurs like me can enjoy the brand wars more than the pros...and most in this thread are making
a living via photography.
I think I will add an a9 in the near future IF the FE 100-400 WITH 1.4TC can perform as well as the gold standard
EOS 100-400ii + 1.4TCiii.......those reports are what I'm waiting on.

If and when I leave Canon it won't be because of features/IQ/DR/etc. Just weight. Sony will eventually be an intermediary
between Canon and mFT. Sucks to get old :(

A large portion of 1DXII users are going to be sport and wildlife photographers. Big, fast superteles kind of go with the territory and Sony has exactly 0 of those in a native mount for the A9. The specs for the A9 sound great, but from what I've seen they kind of fall apart once you try to put on a non-native lens with an adapter.

On top of that, even if Sony comes out with 400/2.8, 500/4, and 600/4 E-mount lenses this year I think it's unlikely to sway many people given the ridiculous price of their lenses. Their 500mm f4 A-mount is heavier than the Canon (even though it lacks IS), and it has inferior MFD, but Sony has the nerve to sell it for $4,000 more? They must be high. I thought all the Sony/mirrorless fanboys kept telling us that cheaper lighter lenses was one reason body stabilization was so much better? How's that working out? At least the 100-400 stacks up better spec wise (and even has IS!), but they still want $500 more than the Canon. I don't care how good their bodies are, glass is far more important for what I shoot, and Sony brings nothing to the table in that regard.

LMAO

Honestly. I cant get past the sony menus and ergos of the camera. Servo on the sony is just about useless ( but that is probably inexperience with their systems ), battery life is ridiculously poor on the sonys and I dod not want to go out and buy a set up adapters to make all my L glasss work on the mounting systems.

Now that Canon has caught up with sensor technology, I see little reason for me or others to consider (other than size and weight) a Sony.....Yup I have investigated the Sony line up......Not for me

Extremely happy with the 1Dx2. does anything i need to to do and then some

But glad you are happy with the sony set ups

Oh well today was my first day with issues with this body, I was shooting in video mode and switched to camera mode and nothing would happen, pressing buttons, nothing, the only screen that was on was the lower one showing your memory card (if you have it set like that) pulled the battery, worked fine.....until it went into sleep mode after 1 minute. Pressed the shutter button and same again, only the small screen was showing and none of the buttons would do anything, pulled the battery and it was fine. Sleep mode again camera would not operate. Same issue all the time, turning the camera off will turn it off but once you turn it on again nothing works.

Im gonna be contacting Canon in the morning and taking it from there, got a wedding in 8 weeks so I should be ok by then.
