I can't say about the other cameras, but as for the 6D I noticed a +/- $50 slash on the actual price for almost a week now, here in the Philippines.

At first I thought it was just grey units but turns out they're from Canon's store themselves.
Kinda opposite to the article, this time here Canon is actually selling a bit less than the re-sellers.

Mail in rebates don't exist here. >:(

Ok, that makes it easier for me. I'm solid on keeping the lens now.
Tbh, I was serious letting it go outright before I've asked, glad I did.

Thank you all.

^ Thanks for pointing out the f-stop and ISO difference pbd.

I'm still thinking of selling the 35mm due to the 35mm overlap, I guess my concern is more on the FL.
But I'm not selling it right now after reading various thoughts on this, not until I've tested it w/ the 6D anyway.

If I like it on the 6D, I'll surely keep this. I can borrow a thrifty fifty from a friend to test that FL too. Its either a 35 and a 50 as my walkaround lens, one lens, atleast for now.

Now that I'm thinking a lot about it, 22mm on the 70D is roughly 35mm on FF, it can feel a bit too wide as a walkaround lens for me; otoh, 35mm is 56mm and very near to the 50mm on FF and feels a bit too tight also.
Think I'm also gonna take the 40mm pancake into consideration. ???

Thank you all for the response. :)

I guess I'll keep the 35 IS for now, and see how it is on the 6D.

Also, I find the 35 on my 70D a little bit tight. Its supposedly near 50mm equivalent FL on FF, but I might be one of those that doesn't dig the 50mm FL, all the more reason to keep the 35mm lens.

Lenses / 16-35 f/4L IS with EF 35 f/2 IS
« on: February 25, 2015, 09:54:00 AM »
For those who have owned both lenses, what can you say about the pair, specially the FL overlap, etc.?
Do you still keep both? Or did you sell one and kept the other?

I'm going FF sometime next month, so I'm selling the 70D and 10-22mm to fund a 6D and the excellent 16-35mm f/4 IS UWA.
I also wanted to sell the 35mm f/2 IS (to fund an 85mm, or a 50mm) since I'd have that FL covered by the UWA, but I haven't convinced myself yet as they're totally different lens with different purpose.

I wannna end up with a 6D; 16-35mm f/4L IS; either a 50mm or an 85mm -leaning towards the latter since I want to wait for the 50mm STM version. And of-course I'll retain the 70-200mm f/4L IS.

What do you guys think? Maybe I should also sell the 35mm now?

Lenses / Re: Review: Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 Di VC USD
« on: February 24, 2015, 05:52:18 PM »
Thanks for another very informative review Dustin, cheers.

Like ahsanford, I agree on the filter factor. I don't even mind the weight, nor the filter size if there was, nor the range if it would have been only 16-30mm.
The comfort of having f/2.8 without going for the price of Canon's f/2.8 UWAs got me excited for this lens until now.

I really like this lens, but Canon's 16-35mm F4 is perfect for me. I know, can't have it all but dear Tamron, so close.

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Deal: Canon EOS 6D Body $1199
« on: February 19, 2015, 02:54:39 PM »
Pretty good deal to me. How far can it go down?...

The lowest I've seen here is still around $1300 equivalent to USD. And that's pre-owned w/ at-least couple thousand clicks, may or may not include remaining warranty time.

With price slashing going around, its very tempting yet makes me wonder if 6DMk2 will soon arrive. I guess its just because of the Yen huh.

A 50mm 1.8 STM would be perfect for me, plus it can be a carry-over if I'll go FF.

That's true, although it doesn't look as if this lens will have IS from the rumour so far.

Yeah, from 52mm to 49mm filter size, I'd think there'll be no IS too; plus the price-point.

EOS Bodies / Re: 6D Mark II speculation...
« on: February 04, 2015, 04:22:18 AM »
I don't see why people are so obsessed with the number of af points for a camera like the 6d - it's isn't and won't be made for tracking. And unless your screen is plastered with af points you have to do a bit of focus & recompose anyway. I'd rather have 11 full cross points than a higher number on the spec sheet.
With -3 ev focusing already, Canon could just make all the 11 af points cross-type and call it the 6DMk2. They don't even need to change the body, just the label, lol.

I seriously hoped they tweak the gps' battery drain though.

Lenses / Re: New 50mm & 70-300mm Coming Soon? [CR2]
« on: February 03, 2015, 09:36:59 AM »
If the 50mm lens is an f/x IS USM model, following on the heels of the 24-, 28- and 35mm models introduced in 2012, it'll be interesting to see how it's priced at launch ... "stratospheric" like the above three initially were, or more "realistically," like recent L zooms.
I'm going for the latter this time.

Maybe the 70-300 won't have the STM, just a plain replacement for the 70-300 IS USM.
