By the way, does anyone know when the 5D Mk3 is coming out? And what about any leak news about the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM len yet?
acerl310 Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2010  Student Photographer
The 5D MK3 will not come out anytime soon IMO.

24-70mm IS? Definitely not next year. They currently have 4 new lenses for 2011. The fisheye, white lenses and extenders.
aliasangel2005 Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2010
I get all of my rumors from Of course I won't hold them to it. At least it gives me an estimated time. 5D3 probably will be 3rd or 4th quarter. Canon already patented the new 24-70. You can see the spec and design info on that link above.

Oh, so you say. I'll hope they release it earlier! So I can't get my hands on a cheap 5D MKii by 2012! :lol:

24-70mm? The one they have right now is already expensive. I can't afford anything that goes above 1,500 dollars. However, I can handhold it at 1/20 without any shake (rifleman's hold / machine gun hold). It's all about technique! I bet the new 24-70mm would cost 500 dollars more.

Happy Holidays! :)

PS I'm not saying I don't want to have a 24-70 IS ;)
aliasangel2005 Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2010
The 24-70 mkii, might be $300 to $500 over the mki. However, I might wait for a Canon Rebate to buy it. Having the New IS helps for 4 clicks/stops at low night situation. I certainly can use the IS for better chances of tack sharp images. It certainly wouldn't hurt. Nevertheless, I can still shoot with the primes that we have without getting the 24-70mm.

Merry Xmas to you too.
acerl310 Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2010  Student Photographer
I saw your prime kit lol. Yeah, you can easily afford the MKII IS! :D
But then again... why do you need IS if you have lenses with the same focal length with enormously bigger apertures... just my two cents :)
aliasangel2005 Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2010
Well, there are three of us into photography. My two bigger brothers and I. They got me into it not too long ago. The two brother are in charge mainly buying prime because they are professional. They put me in charge of buying zoom lenses. I certainly don't mind because we can trade/use each other lenses if we buy different lenses between the three of us. :D

Ah, I see I see. So you can have a camera and a lens when they're working haha!

I have a 1DMk1 and a 1DsMk2 and my wife, who prefers a smaller camera body, has a 350D with a vertical grip … I had a 5D for about 6 months, then sold it because it wasn’t getting as much use as I thought it would

As far as the size, the 1D series is not only much larger in every dimension, but it’s also a lot heavier

There are many reasons for them being this large and heavy … in addition to them being made out of a magnesium metal body, there are a lot more internal components to the larger 1D series and a lot more reinforcing done throughout the entire body - and that all adds weight to the camera … the entire lower part of the body of the 1D series is basically for the battery, which weighs almost as much as an empty 350D body by itself – the 1D series is made for very long service life and to be used in harsh environments that would destroy most cameras after a few minutes – professional photographers, especially news and nature photographers, are really hard on their equipment and need it to be really tough ... but the downside is very high cost and large, heavy equipment most of the time

The 5D is also a really large body and I've found them to be really similar to a 1D type body if the battery wasn’t there … they are also much heavier than the 350D – the 5D is basically a high end camera without the weatherproofing and internal reinforcements of the 1D series … the 5D really excels in studio use and is amazing for low light/high ISO work

Having said all this … there are plenty of times that I will ask to use my wife’s 350D when I want to take some photos, when it would be just as easy to use one of my pro bodies … just because it’s a much lower cost camera doesn’t mean that the quality isn’t still excellent … in fact, I think it’s really one of the best values in DSLR bodies that you can get – the newer Rebel XTi 400D is similar to the 350D with a few internal improvements and an increased screen size (which is really nice)

I've found that in many cases, the Rebel XT 350D will take photos that are just as good as my 1DsMk2 … of course this isn’t true in all situations, but for the most users, I would recommend getting a Rebel and a few decent lenses as a great way to get into photography with a kit that will grow with you and that is easy to upgrade in the future … don’t think that you need to spend a lot of money, or have a top-of-the-line camera to take great photos – if you don’t plan on printing your photos larger than 8x10, a Digital Rebel is a really excellent camera to own

Just do yourself a favor and get some nice glass with it (the lens you use makes a LOT of difference when it comes to image quality, more so than the camera body in many instances) and take the time to read through a few online tutorials to get the most out of it … again, you don’t have to spend a fortune to get great results, but if you do your homework, you can put together an amazing camera package that will do everything you want it to do for many years to come – and if you take your time and do some research on it, you can put it together without spending a fortune

Too many people think that you have to be rich or spend a fortune on photo gear in order to be a good photographer ... but I think we've all seen some amazing photography out of several amature photographers here on dA, sometimes when they’re using the most inexpensive or basic cameras ... the equipment does matter to a certain extent, but not as much as the desire and talent of the person behind the camera

The-Canon-Club Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2007
Oo wow! Good luck with that, they're lovely cameras :plotting:
goranfoto Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2007
on this photo.... is the size of the cameras proportional to their real-life size?
i.e. is 1D really that much bigger than 350D?
The-Canon-Club Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2007
Yes, thery are in real size, and yes it's that much bigger, the 350 is the smallest of canon's digital SLR (along with the 400D)

I'm dyin' mainly for the 350D .. but I would love a 30D..
dreamin' is all i have right now.
The-Canon-Club Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2007
I have the 350 and I love it! but i wish I had waited for the 400. Because the 350 is not very solid in the housing (cheep plastik)
