What was the warranty period?EU default 2 year warranty. Dealer has to provide the 2 years. I first contacted the dealer 2 years and 3 weeks after buying date
Was it the maufacturers / dealers 1 year warranty or an extended warranty?
Is there evidence of dropping or physical abuse to lens?
Even if you don't or didn't, it doesn't sound to me like the lens has lasted a reasonable period given purchase price and specification. In the EU you have additional consumer rights beyond the warranty, few folk are aggressive enough to pursue them, but they are there if you google.
Doesn't help you now, but, this is why you should carry insurance on your gear. If my 70-200 has the same thing happen, the insurance company hands me a check for $1000 and I get a new one.I wonder if insurances would not put this off as 'normal wear', which is usually excluded.
Sometimes you can come out ahead by selling it as-is on ebay to someone who needs it for parts, or can fix it for a few dollars. Those expensive parts are not really all that expensive if you put in used ones.Another good option. But I doubt I could sell it for 500 euro or more in this state
[...]3*3 sampling would get you to 22MP. The math:
4. HD Movie. From what i understand the 22 MP count was to help in the video mode. I am not sure how that helps because 1080P at 16:9 is 2.073 MP. For a strict 4:1 super scale, you need 8.29 MP. So not sure how a 22 MP is better for video than a 18MP sensor. There is no sensor photo site scaling and so in terms of resolution etc, both will be the same.
And speaking of frame rate, the 1Dx uses 2 Digic 5+ processors. At 12 fps at 18MP= 216MP/sec. Scaling that to a 22 MP sensor, Dual Digic 5+ would be able to move 22MP at nearly 10fts.Another hypothetical option to get the math working might be dual Digic5 instead of single/dual Digic5+.
One Digic 5+ would maybe do 5fts at 22MP??
So unless the 5d mk3/mkx has dual Digic 5+, I don't see how it can do 6.9fps.
On a single Digic 5+ CPU I can believe anything roughly under 5fps
This sounds a lot like phase-detection to usIt sounds like the system just takes a picture, measures the amount of blur, then starts zooming in one direction and takes another picture. Now it compares the blurriness of the two pictures and decides to continue focusing in that direction, or to focus in the other direction without hitting the front or back focus stop.
I'll have the finalists to show sometime this weekend. It's been more work than I thought it'd be.Thanks for the update! I bet I wasn't the only one looking at this site just a bit more often than other days
