Not really rumored but long lenses as 400 2.8 and 500 f4 would be VERY interesting. also a ultra-wide lense with a wide aperture. 14-24 16-35 ...

Wish you were correct about being able to get a 500 f4L IS II for less than $10K.  Lowest price listed on current canon price watch is $10,187.

Try visiting our friendly neighbors to the north…. Camera Canada has it for $9730, and with the current exchange rate that works out to US $8740.
And I still don,t get why here the Superteles are way cheaper than in US, but you get all the good discounts on camera bodies, refurbished etc..

A little similar to the Sigma Art design... a little..
Maybe they just understood that putting gold coloured rings everywhere and names as long as the alphabet for their lenses is not a synonym of high quality?

Probably their 200-500 updated with VC. And hopefully better optics.
+1 or maybe a new like 150-300 2.8

I hate you all.. great deals never ship to canada -_-

Good point, but why not use a Canon full frame with the Sigma 120-300?  Just because it doesn't have enough "reach"?

No reason at all, and I would probably own the Sigma if it wouldn't be far more than double the price of my 70-300L - which is fine unless you want to use a tc. Also I have to say I'm currently very happy with the 6d-70-300L combination since it's both rather sturdy and still very portable, the Sigma is a "real" tele you don't just chuck into your backpack and carry around.
shooting sports a f5.6 vs 2.8 means 12800 iso instead of 3200. And if the lightning's bad, 25600 instead of 6400.. that's a reason big enough for me. Happy owner of the siggy 120-300os (non sport) on a 6d and shooting lots of events and sports.

i have been on the fence about buying that lens, i would be using it with the tc alot. i have looked at the test shots on tdp. it looks to be sharper than the older (non sports) model until you put a tc on it and then it looks worse? maybe that is some kind of fluke but that is what is holding me back. maybe you could take it to a store that stocks canon, sigma, and kenko tc's. i am sure they would let you take some test shots and let us know what you find out?
Pretty hard to find a store with these 3 here (Montreal) in fact without asking them to order from the manufacturer(kenko)

at this price tag it better have the best quality all around the frame from any lens on the market. What fool would buy a lens at this price AND manual focus if its not the best ever..

Hey everyone!
I am wondering if any of you have tried both of these teleconverters and sees noticeable difference in image quality ,  faster autofocus etc. Because I already have the mc4 and wonder if I should upgrade to the pro one ( I am (would be) using it with sigma 120-300 os on a 6d for sports) or if the sigma one is better than these 2 and should buy this one instead. I wouldn't really use it for nighttime sports since f4 is pretty slow and would even need to stop lower to get better IQ..
Thank you!

Software & Accessories / Best budget printer to begin ?
« on: June 05, 2013, 01:12:24 AM »
I have around 220 MAXIMUM to spend on a printer to start selling prints to make a little extra cash.  Which printer would be the best bang for buck at this price or less and what kind of paper would be nice ( as you see I am a beginner in this branch). I juste want to start a small business selling to family friend and people they know and maybe have a larger audience after who knows :) It's all about travel photography, landscapes, objects, architectural shots so I don't need a large printer so just a bit larger than normal ones maybe?, otherwise I will just go to a company that does large prints for panoramic landscapes of course... Thank you for your precious advices and knowledge!

Lenses / Polarizing vs ND filter Europe trip.
« on: March 11, 2013, 05:53:28 PM »
Hi all,  I'm wondering if it's worth it to buy one or another of these 2 filter types for a 2 months Europe trip. I mean for landscapes and what would be the benefits of a Polarizing versus the ND etc. It would be a 82mm filter (tamron 24-70 VC ).. Thank you!

From someone who knows, let me say that you can't effectively use a 60D for sports. You could set it someplace ahead of the action and perhaps get one frame if you practiced. That's if you were lucky.

I respectfully disagree with this, I have a 60D and I've shot many football and hockey games, also people running and never had a problem  with the autofocus even in very poorly light environments.. I simply don't understand why you say that. Ok you have the 1dx but don't compare apples and oranges.. 7d is better for sports indeed, but if you master your camera, you do get the shots when it count. 60D is a great camera but for now I would wait to buy a new aps-c camera..
