Lenses / Re: Canon EF-S 55-250 f/4-5.6 IS STM Announced
« on: August 29, 2013, 12:59:17 AM »
i use everything from tamron 2.8 zooms to "muh L lenses!". right now i'm borrowing a 70-200 2.8 (1995 version, no IS) for football season as last year i shot with the awesome 200 2.8 L (old version, early 90's). L lenses should stand for in a 'L'eague of their own.  that 200 2.8 'L' had the worst chrom abs in high contrast of any lens i've ever shot with but i didn't buy it for high contrast high light situations, i bought it because i needed a job to be done and only the 'L' version was up to the task. canon doesn't make a 200 f/4 consumer lens, and i was fed up with 70-300 4-5.6 crap tier lenses.

'L' lenses either go full retard with awesome features OR get you focal lengths and aperture combos that plebs can't get with regular EF/EF-s lenses. the red ring is just to show you're serious - take that as you may. i've seen plenty of red ringers acting like it was babby's first photo shoot or a freshman art student. it's a tool for a specialty job, kinda like a jackhammer or a grinder. you don't send a hammer and a screwdriver to do a jackhammer's job or a nail file to do a grinder's job. just like you don't send a gripped 5D mk III to do a cell phone's job.

PowerShot / Re: Canon PowerShot G16 Announced

the G series won't invade into M series aps-c size sensor territory.

it's ironic how us consumers/semi pro's seem to know it all about what canon should do, but canon doesn't seem to care since it sells rebels like starbucks coffee.

it seems like canon just has a metric ton of old tech they need to sell off and will wait until the last moment to make a comeback.

anyway the only thing that caught my eye is the 9.3 FPS, i have no idea how useful the AF system is but that alone would be killer for soccer moms shooting sports.

i'll stick to my OLD kodak Z915 superzoom for point and shoot crap. my 7D still does the real work.

Pricewatch Deals / Re: B&H Photo Has a Great EOS 60D Bundle Deal

this is a great deal overall it seems, and i know a lot of people that really need to get into DSLR photography that only have point'n'shoots. that and the 60D is a good camera for 90% of things aps-c shooters are going to shoot anyway.
