Talk to the primary shooter, and tell him/her that you are going to quote: $10,000(to be split 50/50).  My guess, is that the problem goes away.  The lesson: You now understand the theory of weaseling, and will move forth with that intell in mind, next time you negotiate.

After reviewing the keepers from a Niagara Falls shoot with a 24-105, the distortion was enough to make me want to send the lens over the Falls in a barrel.  Both current 24-70s are very good, even in my hands.

Normally "mail-in" screams at me, "Run Away! Run Away!".  But, this year, I was successful twice almost  Once, hassle free with our Italian monopod friends, and once(plus 4 minutes) with the mighty Canon(rebate to show up in 3-4 weeks per the CS rep).  I suppose, I should not count my rebates before they hatch, but the Canon rep was very professional and forthcoming.  I had my "evil twin bark" at the ready on my iPad, but was happy that it was not needed.  I know it is rare, as a happy customer usually tells no one, but this encounter was truly hassle free.

Lenses / A tip of the hat to Canon Customer Service
« on: January 14, 2014, 12:23:11 PM »
Yesterday, I got a letter from Canon Rebates telling me that my "UPC" code for a recent lens purchase was invalid.  Today, I called and said: "Whattz up?".  The rep solved my issue in 4 minutes, and admitted that it was a problem on their end.  Well done, Canon!

Well played, Mr. Mackguyver!

Check out the autofocus spec on the Blackmagic Pocket cam.  I seem to recall reading somewhere that it was only "active" with 4/3's lenses.  For the price, it does sound like an intriguing small video cam.

Another positive vote for the SL1, especially for those days when you don't want/need to carry +/- a stone of stuff.

In a few years, we will be sayin: "If you remember 7Ds, you weren't really there!".

EOS Bodies / Re: In defence of the 100D
« on: December 16, 2013, 02:27:13 PM »
With the recently acquired pancake, the 100D is a solid "take everywhere/don't leave the house without it" kit.  Yes, it doesn't do everything a 5diii or a 7D does, but for hit and run, light travel, non-conspicuous snaps, it does the job.  And, the kit lens will do decent AF for video when needed.

EOS Bodies / The SL1 & an S95
« on: December 02, 2013, 01:39:10 PM »
I'm getting to olde to carry my bigg boy stuff very farr.  But, armed only with an 5 day olde SL1, the kit autofocus STM, a 50mm 1.2, and an agin S95, the keeper stills/video from a 10 day stay in swinginn Vegas exceeded my lame standards by a Ho lot.  The SL1 is now my travel body!

Another positive vote for the 1.2L, my only prime.  Excellent for video, and stills at midnight.

Sony, but video only.  Canon for stills, and am now exploring DSLR video.
