Canon General / Re: Lost half of my Canon DSLR
« on: February 17, 2015, 02:07:44 PM »
Thanks guy.

Got broke-in last week, while our family was on mini vacation. Looks like they went through my office 1st, where all my camera gear been stored. Bodies and lenses were stored in Lowpro 200 roller - that was an easy for them.

Gear I lost:
5d iii
16-35 f4 IS
24-70 f2.8 II
70-200 f2.8 IS II
85L II
600EX flashes QTY: 3
The only insured item through house insurance was 70-200.

Working with the home insurance agent right now. Will see...

Sounds like they were in-out within 5mins, the cops were there within 10mins. I been live here for last 10yrs, nothing happens until now.

No, because is not FF. I want a small body that can deliver high ISO shots. Built-in EVF is a must for me.

1Dx & 400f/2.8 II @ f/2.8

I guess it won't be long now & this thread will be somewhat defunct, everyone will be posting to the 1Dx II & 5Ds/R threads.

Still, until then, the 1Dx has been without a doubt the most satisfying piece of Camera gear I've ever used.


This one with 200mm f2 IS @ f2

I ended up with a new canon 1dx for $4700 usa model and rebought a new 24-70 2.8 for now. Either way I made money and decided to save and think about what I want and see what else Canon announcesthis year. I was really hoping for the M3 to come here but will see what else comes to the usa later this year.

Give a7s + FE 35mm + FE 55mm combo a try  ;)

My 1st DSLR combo was 40d + 50mm f1.4. Bought it used through a friend for $400.

My most recent accessories to support current 400mm and up coming 600mm:

How about Canon produce a camera with IQ comparable to that of Sony/Nikon?

Or is that too much to ask?

Be nice dilbert :)

I might not happy with Canon mirrorless, however, Canon DSLR is hard to beat. While others asking for better sensor, I'm satisfied with 1Dx + 24-70 + 70-200 + 200 f2 + 400 f2.8 IS II.

Lenses / Re: 11-24 is here, with images of it compared to Nikon 14-24

As you know I just got the 16-35 f4, but after actually seeing this 11-24 I think I am going to have to get one, of course I'll await the reviews, and the 16-35 is an outstandingly good lens, but 11mm just opens up a range of perspectives the 16 nor 17TS-E can get to, throw in the usual weatherproofing and AF of the L's and even if you have to stop it down for maximum sharpness it still looks like a killer lens.

Think of the dynamic stuff 11mm will get you with the L series AF, it will become the new must have lens for skateboard shooting, snowboarding, anything that grinds rails, goalmouth, etc. Heck I'd like to put one on the EOS M and stick it as a remote above the wedding couple! So many possibilities of shots never captured before.

I think my Profoto B1 money is going on the 11-24!

It's hard to resist.

There are much better MILCs out there, so if this particular one doesn't come to North America, so what?

The market target group for Canon's MILCS are the people who buy their equipment based on the brand logo on the front. They certainly don't have performance as a selling point for the product.

"focusing up to 6.1x faster than the original EOS M" ==> hope this is not just marketing talks

Was about to click the magic button ==> "Resolution in non-central portions of the frame show an increase as you stop down from f/4 to f/8"

Looks like the demand for Canon mirrorless system is not that great in US

MTF charts will lead the way.

Current 16-35 f4 IS is good, but 11mm uhmm ::). You can always shoot @ 16mm with 11-24, but you can't shoot 11mm with 16-35mm. I know PBD will give me some S**** with this comment, perspective ;)

I recently sold my 5DIII to pay for a Sony a7s, which I use along side my a7r (and, much less often, my 6D).  If Canon ever makes a FF mirrorless camera that's at least as good as the a7 line I would likely buy one, but until then I doubt I'll buy another Canon body.  (Keeping the lenses, though....)

Since my wife doesn't want to give up her(was mine) RX1, I recently pickup an a7s as well. I rented it last Sep, I'm amazed with high ISO. It's great little camera with fe 35mm. attach.

for all those who find the EOS M3 ever so *ugly*, there is a much more "elegant, flashy, glitzy, smooth, sleek, cool, apple-like, totally premium" alternative available ...


*Oh so pretty*. Carved from one solid block of aluminium. The Leica apple of all mirrorless cameras. But functionally it's *pretty much* where the Canon EOS M was before it got the first Firmware update.  ;D
