Grrr. I was hoping to see a photo of a Mountain Lion taken by the 1d x. Stupid macs.lol. me too
Who has it running and with which EOS Utility Version?eos utility works fine with windows 7, perhaps you should install it on your mac.
I have got the Version from CD 2.11.4 which is not running!
Proud owner of 400 mm of prime glasscongrats!
Can anyone suggest a suitably sturdy monopod.. no way anyone can hand hold such a beast and get half decent shots!
yeah, i guess you're right i need another coffee!Good question ... but you can safely bet the best work from a 1DX wont be seen until it gets in the hands of an American!pffff, come on. like if no one else can make good photo's! america is not sacred. why should another part of the world wait longer to get the camera?
Haha! Come on the guy is obviously joking. Tongue in cheek humour it is called.
What I do not understand is why the OP decided to expand from the 1D X has arrived in India, to questioning how Canon is treating the US. Almost as if he wants to cause trouble. Would have been much better to just have a thread about India. No need for the "America" comment.
The 1D X has arrived in India great, just as it has in numerous other countries.
pffff, come on. like if no one else can make good photo's! america is not sacred. why should another part of the world wait longer to get the camera?I so wonder why Canon is treating USA, the mighty USA with such distain!Good question ... but you can safely bet the best work from a 1DX wont be seen until it gets in the hands of an American!
There's a number of versions of the Canon 400mm about. The current model is the ef 400mm f2.8 L IS mkII. It's the best of the breed, and the lightests. It has the newest Image Stabiliser.true, but as the OP stated it's a 5 year old 400mm. so i guess it's pretty save to assume he's talking about the EF 400mm f/2.8L IS USM. the 400 f/2.8 non-IS lenses are from 1991 (mk. I) and 1996 (mk. II).
The old version was the ef 400mm f2.8 L IS and this is optically equal to the current mk II version, but it's a big and heavy beast. Both of these lenses are listed on The Digital Picture lens test web site and can be compared. This lens has an Image Stabiliser.
The previous version to this was the ef 400mm f2.8 L mk II. This lens doesn't have an image stabiliser and is heaver than the newer versions. It has a Flourite lens element that puts it's IQ into the same league as the latter two lenses. This is an optical peach (as are the other two lenses) but it is a heavy beast and no IS. It's min focus distance isn't as close either.
The oldest version of this lens is the ef 400mm f2.8 L. This lens is the oldest and heaviest 400mm in the Canon EF linage
Would like to enquire whether a 5 year old 400 mm f/2.8 L make I (not II) which is in excellent condition is a good deal at 4000 euro, and what is its performance with a 2x TC III on a 1DX, whether images are still sharp.4000 euro seems a good deal to me. perhaps too good. just make sure you test the lens thoroughly, check if the IS still works etc. and you will have a really great lens for a relatively cheap price!
