EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Where do you buy 5D Mark iii?
« on: July 21, 2014, 08:37:26 PM »
Very simple, SAVE your money and buy it from authorized dealers. If you can wait, X-mas is the best time. I highly recommend Profeel: http://stores.ebay.com/PMI-Digital?_rdc=1 . Ask for David, awesome to work with.

My sources are: BH, Profeel, Adorama, and Samys

Software & Accessories / Re: Apply Loctite to RRS foot replacement?

It's good to know some of you do apply 242. I just picked up a bottle 242 at local hardware store. Will apply it tonight.

Software & Accessories / Apply Loctite to RRS foot replacement?
« on: July 20, 2014, 04:30:26 PM »
Hi guys,
I recently picked up RRS foot replacement for my 400mm. RRS recommends Loctite 242 to secure it. Do you use any Loctite on your foot replacement?

Thanks,

1D X Sample Images / Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx
« on: July 20, 2014, 02:13:52 PM »
So, this nearly made my cry. My son and I was watching a show at an amusement park the other day and this guy in front of me had an 1dX, but CLEARLY didn't know how to use it, he was pushing buttons and obviously didn't get the results he wanted. He looked sooo cocky I didn't even want to ask if he needed help... Then he rested his camera on his knee and I took this shot to see what he was doing wrong perhaps, pretty obvious to me. I wish someone that knows what a 1dx can do, could have had this camera instead of him.




Oh my word! I feel your pain  >:(

For $6K body, it should work... ::)

I got this on pre-order - without stick shift, 100% auto ;D

I asked someone in the know recently if Canon had market research on who buys the EOS 5D Mark III and for what purpose. I was told that the videographer focused purchaser of the EOS 5D Mark III was less than 10% of the total sales. The camera is, and has always been, for the still photographer.

What was the proportion for 5D Mark II sales (for video)?

To put another perspective on this, if you want to experiment with 4K video or start building your 4K catalogue then you're forced into buying Panasonic or Sony.
Speaking from minority group, I don't care about 4k or 8k. I need & want 5D 4 to perform extremly well in low light, faster frame rate, even more AF cross type and don't mind little DR improvement.

The 50-500/f1.4 is missing from Canon's lineup.

You're wrong. My source confirmed "24-500 f1.2 IS is coming. IQ is slightly better than current 70-200 f2.8 IS II through out focal lenght"

Reviews / Re: Review - Canon EF 135mm f/2L
« on: July 16, 2014, 01:33:24 PM »
I've been raving for the 135L for awhile now but it seems to get washed out by the "eermegerd 85mm 1.2!" Consistently... :/

It's a near perfect lens and it deserves a makeover with a bump in aperture and IS. That will make it a lens that I'd have absolutely no reason to own a 70-200II. Dedicated portrait photographers would flock to that prime instead of spending the weight and monies on the 70-200II.
I just love the 135L. It's the reason I like primes over zooms. Light, small, fast and affordable.

Since I don't do photography for living, I can live without 135L. The 70-200 f2.8 IS II is a MUST have lens for my shooting.
It won't replace the 70-200LII but it'd give a nice alternative to shooters who don't need the size and weight and need some extra speed.

There is nothing much to complaint about current 135L, except lacking IS for those 1/60 or slower shots.

I've been thinking about 35mm to go with 135L for low light. The love for 50mm focal lenght has changed to 35mm now.

Lenses / Re: Year of the lens....a joke....?

I could see realistically:

100-400L IS II + 7d2 before photokina,

then announced at photokina:
35mm f/1.4L II
50mm f/1.8 IS
85mm f/1.8 IS
135mm f/2L II
New FF body, maybe

Count me in for 35mm f1.4 II. You forgot IS on 135mm ;)

I've been holding out for Canon's supposed 50mm IS and possibly even an 85 IS.

We're over half way into 2014, I just may have to buy glass from a different manufacturer :/

Any word?

is that a promise or a threat?  ;D

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: A7r Arrived - Meeting New Buddies

Hope everything will go well for you John

I tried the adapter with Canon L lenses...it feels  :-\

That is the exact feeling that I had/have with it. LOL. Although, I pretty much expected to be underwhelmed with the feel ergonomically. Was hoping that the IQ would compensate for that initial feeling. It has not.

Thanks for the well wishing, I certainly hope it works out also as I hate having to return stuff (in this case, from multiple vendors).

If the plan works and you decide to keep it, I highly recommend the Sony grip. It does help with larger L lenses. 

If you REALLY-REALLY like a7r, then, their A-mount to e-mount adapter works BEST with their a-mount lenses - AF is very good. Just more $$$ to spend  ;D

I spent quite a bit of $$$ renting most of A-mount prime and zoom lenses, to test with my a7r series. Their A-mount primes are REALLY good. 135mm A-mount + adapter work extremely well with a7r for portrait works. Hint: DETAILS ;)
