Lenses / Re: wide angle needed

I can just add to what Macguyver is saying. I have the Zeiss 15mm and 21mm and they are both phenomenal lens, especially the 15mm, which I totally fell in love with it this summer. But the 16-35 f4L IS is a lot more versatile and the IQ is very impressive. Be also aware that the Zeiss 15mm has a 95mm filter size, so filters are not exactly cheap.

Just curious... how much did you sell it for?

This is my last shot with the 85 1.2L II ... And it is of the guy who bought it from me. I took it to demonstrate the 3D pop and phenomenal bokeh of this lens. I pushed the preorder button for the Otus 85/1.4, so I did not see the point in having both. Not very often I am selling a favorite lens, but this time I did ...
I got $100 more than I paid for it, so it was a good deal when I bought it and a good deal when I sold it. Bought in the US and sold in Norway is normally a good deal.

I´ve been through them and in my view this looks very promising. It was after I saw these I pushed the preorder button. I am really looking forward to see how it works on the 200-400 f4L IS 1.4x and 600 f4L IS II lenses. If IQ is OK with the 1.4xIII extender on the 600, it gives phenomenal reach.

If you download the images and tweak them in LR you´ll see lots of additional info in shadow areas etc. I´m not sure what kind of processing they have been through. I agree on your ISO assessment.

Since we´re into horses and manual focus lenses. This is my neighbor´s old horse, shot with the Zeiss 135 f2.0 lens @f2.0 and the Ec-S focusing screen, during today´s focusing practice (more pleasant than jogging  ::)). He is moving towards me, so I have to continuously adjust focus. My number of keepers are constantly improving.

I would like to add the return of the EG-s Screens again. I did like them alot in my 5Dc.
Agreed! If I can´t get a good precision screen for manual focus, I don´t believe I will buy the camera.

Went walking today on the Beach, found this Guy, not as pretty as the recent shot by Eldar, less well fed perhaps.

1Dx & Otus 55f/1.4 @ f/1.4
Oh, this is massively good!
And I believe he came ashore from this ship ...

I wish Canon and Zeiss could agree on an AF license ...

I'm surprised that the 12/14-24 f4L has not been mentioned.

It´s kind of funny that on the day Canon releases the 7DII, this thread starts.

These threads tend to derail every time. We should have one common goal and that is to make sure Canon spend all their R&D money on the equipment we want. And instead we end up describing each other as DRones, Nikonites, Canonasses or what have you.

Yes, Canon´s cameras are probably better cameras than Nikon, but the sensor in a Nikon camera is better for most of our use, than Canons sensors are. Yes, Canons lens lineup is better than anybody else's, but I still want to be able to buy Zeiss lenses. Yes, Canons CPS is probably the best service in the business and I want that. But I also want at least the same quality sensor in my Canon camera as I could get in a Nikon camera. This is very very simple and it has nothing to do with being a Canonmonkey or a Nikonass. And please don´t reply with the crap statements about sales volumes etc. It´s a waste of CR space. The majority of those buying a DSLR does not even know that there is something called DR. And if they do, they believe it stands for Doctor!

Some of us wants a 24MP camera with splendid DR and high ISO performance. I wish you could get it. I want a 40MP body with splendid DR at lower ISO. Someone wants 4k video. I could´t care less, but I hope you´re gonna get it.

Some of the more agitated Canon sensor defenders here starts to sound like an antique arguing the slide ruler´s advantage over a calculator.

I am still able to live a happy life with my 1DX and 5DIII. But I was very disappointed when I realized that there was no 5DIV or 1DXs coming to Photokina, with a Nikon/Sony busting sensor in it ...

Preorder button pressed, so then it is time to wait ...

Too tempting to pass, so I pushed the order button. Looking forward to verify its high(er) ISO performance and how it works on the 200-400 f4L IS 1.4x and 600 f4L IS II lenses. Looks very promising to me, especially the AF system.

My list is not very long:

- Resolution (should be minimum 40MP)
- DR improvement (at low ISO is OK with me, provided they improve it enough)
- Metering locked to AF point
- EC at auto ISO in manual mode

I have never used video on any of my SLRs and I don´t believe I´ll start now ...

 I have played with some of the files at:
http://web.canon.jp/imaging/eosd/samples/eos7dmk2/
And they look very promising to me. I will wait for more objective reviews, but it seems likely that I will get the 7DII as a supplement to my 1DX for birds and wildlife and keep on waiting for the high MP/high DR (at lower ISO) alternative ...
