What should I get between a Canon Eos 60d, with only 1000 shots, with 18-200mm IS lens and a Canon Eos 760d, with a Canon EF 28-135 f3.5-5.6 IS lens?

What if we add to the mix a Canon Eos 800d with 18-55 IS?

Mostly will be using it as a family camera, no sports or action photo.

All 3 cameras are around the same price used, but two of them I can see and test in person, the 800d I have to buy without testing."

Yes, you can use it. You propably won't see any benefits from using a brand new card on an old camera but you can use it.
So, Nikon rep told me that they will soon stop servicing D3s and that I should upgrade to newer model.
Problem is that they won't loan me a D5 to try it out and I don't know if the price difference with the D500 is justified. Has anyone here tried it?"

About the wifi, I don't use it but once in a while it comes in handy, like when a cute girl or a couple would like to have a quick share of the photo, I just quick process it on the camera, export into small jpeg and send it through wifi to their phone or my phone and send by email.
I believe the Nikon has a small dongle you can plug into the camera but there are Wifi SD card like EyeFi or Flucard.
I have a Flucard, it is quicker and easier to use than the proprietary Nikon one."

Depends on what you want to do.
For landscapes go Nikon since it has better dynamic range, D3200 sells used at about that price, D7000 is a bit more expensive.
For portraits and street photo meme then go canon, they have a nifty fifty for 100bucks or 70bucks used, nikon wants 200bucks new 150 used for their AF-s nifty fifty, unless you get a D7000 then you can use the older AF D lens which is about the same price as the canon."

"Alright gear fags, I've finally come to the conclusion that a 5D is nice and all but if I actually want to get myself to take pictures I need portability.

Would love some recommendations based on these factors:

1. Small form factor, something to grab and run out the house with I'm guessing this probably means mirrorless.
2. Interchange ables lenses as I mostly like to shoot with primes wide open. 35/50/85 is pretty much all I need for the portraits that I wanna shoot.
3. Good ISO preformance. I love to shoot low light, I know I'm gonna have to take a hit here probably but we'll see

Bonus: Sexy. Who doesnt like beautiful machines.

Thinking about getting an MC-11 and some older Canon stuff on the cheap. It sounds like the MC-11 doesn't like lenses made before 2006, though.

Oly 17mm 1.8

The 15mm is the most expensive, and I don't think the manual aperture ring will work on my Oly body., but apparently the IQ is the best of the three and the AF is solid. The 17mm apparently has the worst IQ, but seemingly has the best AF speed which would be good for street. The 20mm is the cheapest and has solid IQ but the AF is apparently awful, but it is super small which is nice. I already have the Pana 25mm/1.7 so I dunno if it'd be too close to that, too.

14 is a bit wide. if you're not happy with it, i wouldn't got with 15. Try and loan them, rentals aren't very expensive. If you've a local store nearby you can even come to agreement and they can let them try the lenses for free. It's standard practice among phototogs. As long as you buy one, they'll be happy. You can also look at Sigma 16mm f/1.4 dc dn. It's direct convert from E mount, so it's huge, but I've seen it get some nice reviews."

Moiré is usually induced by regular, man made patterns. Nature shots rarely exhibit any.

All right. I'm considering getting the Nikon D750, but one of the things holding me back is the fact that it has that optical low-pass filter. The D810, which doesn't have the filter, is too expensive to be palatable for me at this point, and so if I wanted a camera without it I'd have to sacrifice the full-frame sensor as a whole.
As a side note, if I did, I'd probably go for the Nikon D7200.
Is the absence of moiré control and sharper image definition worth going down from a full-frame camera for the sake of? I can't imagine it is, but I just want to make sure in case I'm retarded."

I don't, I just want to get the most out of my investments.

I'm just evaluating whether buying a developing kit and a good film scanner, or selling my film cameras and lenses and adding those money to the budget of the aforementioned kit and scanner.
The scanner would be able to output excellent 20MP pictures, even when shooting from the most portable of the point and shoot, but film and development costs make the process slower, making me learn slower.
A digital camera would make shooting cheaper overall, I'd be able to shoot much more and I'd probably learn faster, but they're a lot bulkier, and lenses are criminally expensive compared to vintage ones (my 50mm f1.4 cost me just 60€)."

Well, many manual vintage lenses can be adapted to a Canon dslr. And to most mirrorless of any brand. Chipped (for focus confirm) x to eos ef adapters are pretty cheap. Depends of what you have, not everything is (easily/cheaply) adaptable. And you probably still do want to have the kit lens too if you get a digital camera.

Something like a EOS 100d kit is not pocketable but definitely not bulky. (Got one for temporary replacement when my old one developed a problem. Found out it's good enough for me. I think it was like >300€.

If you want to go film, one option is get a vintage enlarger and couple of trays instead of scanner. I did it that way as kid in early stone age.

Film (and analog printing) is great fun and people managed fine with it but do not underestimate how much more convenient digital is."

>Depends of what you have
I'm in the Canon FD system: four zooms, and the nifty fifty I've mentioned before.

>not pocketable
Well, I mentioned pocketability because I also have an Olympus XA, which is incredibly small and produces really nice pictures. It's more of an added bonus of staying with film, than a strict requirement for digital: I'd be able to achieve great picture quality with something that fits in my jeans' pockets.

>one option is get a vintage enlarger and couple of trays instead of scanner
I considered that, but that would be as expensive as the scanner plus software when you factor in consumables, and would limit me to monochrome prints: color enlarger heads and color analizers are stupid expensive, and I've read the process is far more complex than black and white, meaning that initial yields would be really low and really bad. Moreover enlarger printing takes space, that I don't really have, and time, that I prefer to use differently.

>Film (and analog printing) is great fun
I know, and also I'd love to print my photos (currently my film goes through a lab that only does dev+print, but the prints are really bad and often they don't even print the entire roll, only god knows why), but that's something I just can't do now.
>do not underestimate how much more convenient digital is.
I did my math and I know it is. I'm considering sticking with film because I found a great deal on a very good second hand scanner, and I'm trying to figure out what those same money (plus the revenue of two zooms, the fifty, and a body - the rest has sentimental value) could get me and choose from there."

17-55 is more flexible. 28 1.8 would be good if pancake, sharper, just a bit better for lowlight and it's the focal length you use the most or at least very near it.

Arguably the Panasonic G9 is a better buy. Better video, has a top LCD and better EVF but a little bigger and Olympus IBIS is marginally better still. Also keep in mind Panasonic bodies work better with panasonic lenses due to the DFD system but olympus works the same with either.

But from my experience (I use a E-M5 II), micro 4/3 is a great system that's quite mature at this point. The only knock on it is IQ coming down from full frame but if you don't pixel peep, it's very good at this point.

Go into a camera shop and give the olympus and panasonic bodies a go, see which one you prefer."

Well, unfortunately those are not easily/cheaply adatable to dslr cameras. Adapters exist for fd to ef but either have optical elements (choise of expensive or suck) or do not allow focusing to infinity. So going mirrorless can be more realistic if you want to use adapted vintage fd (or rangefinder &cet) lenses.

I'd still suggest getting a 2nd hand digital kit for convenience and learning. Keep your vintage film gear for fun and nostalgia."

"Is the a7r2 worth the 500 extra bucks on the a7m2 when I plan to probably upgrade in the following years to m3 or maybe then even m4?
The m3 is again 500 bucks more than the r2. (875€ vs 1375€ vs 1899€)

Reasons that speak for it may be:
- more AF points, cont. eye-af
- higher DR and better ISO performance

Reasons I dont care much:
- More MP: Neither do I have Gm lenses to properly make use of it, nor do I print 3m wide to stand a meter away from it and nor do I do extreme cropping.
Resampling may be the only reason.
- bigger file sizes (have enough harddrives)
- slower buffer (dont shoot burst much)

Against:
- costs 500 bucks more but is only 500 bucks less then the m3.

Anything else that I missed? Is the sensor alone worth the extra price? Does it make shooting with it much easier (I mainly shoot people but not sports)? If not I'd rather spend the money on some glass.

That's the thing should should do. The first priority is the lenses, make sure you can afford an awesome workhorse lens, like the Tamron 28-75 F2,8.

That's why I recommend the Tamron 28-70 F2,8.

It's really that good and can give you that extra 1-2 stops if the situation gets too dark/slow.
You can consider its sharpness as a nice side bonus in your case.

It's on a completely different level than the kit lens."

- The camera is very sluggish when it writes 42MP RAWs into card. You can't even access the menu during that time.
One of the reasons people go for the mark 3 is the new buffer which speeds things up.

On the plus side, it does blow the A7ii out of the waters in Video recording."

maybe. I tend to buy my gear used because its much cheaper and I dont have that huge loss of value most gear encounters.

>>3389335
the m3 is way out of my budget, even the r2 is also hitting the limits hard but I dont want to regret my purchase and be eyeing the other camera all the time...

Does anyone has experience with eye-af and face detection on the mark 2? I just cant find any proper video on the internet.
I shoot a lot of candids with friends and when shooting wide open telling them to stop moving until I repositioned AF points or recompose my frame kinda sucks. Same for other types of portrait work. Is there any other fast way to achieve focus in such situation than those two modes?"

">>3389545
EyeAF is only really critical when you want those F1,4 - F2 shots.
But when you do need them, it comes in incredibly handy.

It works exactly like the AF back button on the Canon cameras, you hold down the EyeAF and then take the shot.
The A7Rii will have a massive advantage on this part because it's continuous tracking of the eye."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==3389665 && dateTime=="11/11/18(Sun)06:02:53")

">>3389555
but how is the actuall performence?

The PDAF coverage and density is significant lower on the m2 and eye-af only works in af-s mode. For a model that only moves slightly, is it fast and accurate enough?

Is face detection working fast and accurate even when leaving the PDAF covered area?
I dont shoot with extrem DOF too much, I like to incorporate the background a little bit more instead of just blurring it all out, so face detection would probably be enough most of the times."

I don't think I have met anyone who likes the face detection.

Everybody only use the EyeAF, and it's not very good on the A7ii, because it isn't continuous.
Rii's AF is much better than 7ii.
But not as good as the 7iii.
Not sure how else to quantify that."

>face and eye-af outside of pdaf area ( I knew it would probably do but i wanted to actually see it)
inside this area, does it utilies the pdaf points and works faster/better or is it contrast only?

Will back focusing works just as good or even better than relying on such half-baked af functions?

By now I'm more and more turned of by spending 500€ on some AF functions, silent shutter, min shutter with auto ISO and better ISO (its not like the mark2 is lacking in this regards just because something else is even better.).

I think spending the money on a nice lens i can take with me to future bodies will be worth more. The Sigma 20mm 1.4, even if huge, looks sexy af. Non closeup wide angle with smooth dof makes me drooling."

"I purchased a used lens at 82% percent the cost of a brand new one, shipping included, from eBay, because ever getting a deal on these stupid Samsung lenses is next to impossible.

The seller's description claims:
>It is in mint, or as near mint as makes no difference, cosmetic and operational condition
>The photos enable you to judge for yourself what immaculate condition the lens is in.
>I think anyone would really struggle to tell any difference between this lens and a brand new one.
>Overall, I’d rate this lens an easy 9.5 out of 10 for cosmetic condition
>in mint or very near mint

However, upon unwrapping the lens I immediately noticed four different spiderweb fractures on the internal elements. Only one of the sellers photos may depict these fractures, but without having referenced the physical item it would be impossible to discern. This gives me reason to believe this was not damage accrued during shipping, it was packed well, but rather the listing description was woefully misleading. Thus, I should have plenty of evidence to get all of my money back.

However, how concerned about these fractures should I be, both picture quality, and the chance of the fractures getting worse? I'd be happy with just a significant partial refund and keep the lens instead. I intend to use it hiking so there's less concern of knocks and scratches to a shitty lens. It's night so I cannot go out to take any test shots.

">>3391196
The reason I recommend Sony is that we know they are good, and it is pretty much either micro four thirds or Sony for mirrorless. Sony is mature and has the same ecosystem for APS-C and Fullframe.

It depends on what photography you want to start off doing straight away.

The A5100 is really light and inexpensive. Good for discreet stuff with a small lens and taking everywhere.

But the down side is it has no EVF, and no hotshoe (does have a popup flash) if you want to get into off camera flash for portraits.

It is $548 with the 16-50mm (about 24-75mm equiv) kit lens on B&H. Though that lens has a powerzoom switch rather than a zoom ring - that would annoy the shit out of me.

The OMD EM10 Mk III is $799 on B&H with the 14-42mm (28-84mm equiv) kit lens, but currently has a $200 savings making it $599 on B&H.

EM10 Mk III has the advantage of doing 4K video while the A5100 and A6000 do FHD, until you move up to the A6300/A6500 etc.

I should also mention the A5100 and A6000 are 2014 cameras.

I cant recommend any kind of lens more expensive than a kit lens without even knowing what you want to shoot.

I'd want you to be happy with what you get, and have the best in your budget range.

Best could be best in image quality, or best in AF, or anything else - which ever helps the most to get the shot, miss less shots."

It's the same ecosystem, really not much difference between them. Just look at prices and and features, and whether they have ibis for Panasonic. All Olympuses are with it, but it's sweet if you've Panasonic with ibis, as it opens up completely Olympuses side of the lenses as well.

Sony is a crapheap of a company. They make great sensors with incredibly shitty cameras attached to them.
Almost every part of Sony produces half-shitty products at best and act like total assholes.

The cameras work great. Lumix wont even have PDAF.

>Muh PDAF

Exactly what I was talking about: good sensors, shitty cameras
Every good point Sony has is directly related to the Sensors. Everything else (Ergonomics, Menu, extra features, battery life, stabilization, weather sealing, resilience, etc.) Is shot compared to the competition."

Don't worry, Panasonic will have plenty of opportunity to show off how bad their stabilisation is at the weight of full sized sensors.

And like Nikon fans, you will eat humble pie on the battery life as well."

None of those are an issue. Feels great in the hand to me, battery life is fine, shipped with 2 batteries by default, Ive never finished a second battery after an entire day of shooting.

Travelling is fine, it can charge through camera via power bank. I also have a dual charger with USB input, and total of 3 batteries just in case.

Stabilisation is fantastic honestly, especially if you get an OSS lens combined with body stabilisation. Stabilised manual lenses on FF is great too. Weather sealing has also been fine in rain, and that is also to do with the lens.

Not to mention the AF is amazing, eye AF is a treat on wide open 85mm, which even works on my first gen body with CDAF only, just not as amazingly as third gen, but still pretty good. Animal eye AF is in the works too.

Ridiculous desu, I would prefer it if Panasonic could come up with strong competition, it would be better for everyone, and help drive more innovation. But I doubt it on their first gen."

I don''t know, you could ask the shop, since it depends on each shop, right?
Some shops have them in tock.

It's not like there is only one source to get camera gear from. Just apply some common sense."
