That's nice and all but the 7D2 does not have NFC you see. ;)

Another excuse for an add-on accessory perhaps?

Looking at 7D II specs, I can't wait to see rumors 5D4 & 1DX II from Mr. CR

+1... Btw, too early for 6DMK2?

I've read everything there is about dot-tune and was very hopeful I could have the same success like lots of people who used it from countless forums.

Result? So inconsistent w/ my 70D and the 4 lens I have. Its good some find it useful and works for them, but for now I've reverted back to the 0's.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 7DII - Did you preorder?

Nope; nor planning in the future, timing and all that's why.. A very solid body though, specs-wise.

I already have the 70D and the next body I'm gonna have will be a fullframe; by then the 70D will either go or retained as my cropup.

I've also came across this but couldn't remember where, all I remember there was a quick dismissal on the topic.

Good thing its being discussed again. Thank you, new thing to keep in mind and I've learned a thing today.

After 6 yrs. in the capital, I'm back here at Southern Leyte, Philippines - 80 miles from where Typhoon Haiyan wreaked havoc last year.

The scenery here is dominated mostly by vast coasts and few big forests.


Canon EF Prime Lenses / Re: Canon 35mm F2 IS

I got mine today, bought it pre-owned at roughly $460. It was bought stateside by a photo studio owner, still in excellent condition and can pass as new.

Anyway, I'm still testing it now. Pics to follow.

I have a 4x6 hard edge, soft edge, & a reverse grad from Hitech, all 0.6 except for the 0.9 rev. I also have their 105mm cpol.

So far they are quite good optically and quality-wise. My SE has few tiny scratches, but they don't scratch that easy though, specially if you store them in a quality filter pouch - one thing I've neglected before.

As Robert mentioned they are worth the price. I would've gone for the Lee's if only they were available at the time of my purchase; Singh Ray was just too expensive for a hobbyist like me.

Thanks candyman.

That's the best I can get out of the Canon EF 75-300 USM III, soft lens, given to me almost for free. Gonna upgrade my tele soon, as I'm starting to use it more and more. :)

Software & Accessories / Re: Lee Big Stpper with UV filters
« on: July 19, 2014, 07:06:43 AM »
The reason I remove mine off, is solely because of vignetting. AFAIR, using only 2 square filters it vignettes at 10-11mm; adding the 82mm c-pol at the end further increase the vignetting up until 13mm.

If there was a UV filter attached, vignetting would be worse. I live near the coast, yet no matter how much I want to leave the UV on for added protection I just can't coz of vignetting.

Lenses / Re: Review: Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS

"The good news is that the corners of the 16-35 f/4 L IS are very impressive – prime-like."

"..snip...that will show the Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 L IS USM Lens performing clearly superior to the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 L II USM Lens and comparing remarkably well even against the excellent Zeiss 15mm f/2.8 Distagon T* ZE Lens."

That will bring a lot of smile. ;)

Neuro's post sums it up. You might as well try and decide upgrading to fullframe now(or a little bit later) and skip the 70D.

Because you can't have it both ways, with those L lenses you'll have "normal" zoom lenses which might not be wide enough for you; going with the suggested lenses still limits you to crop only.

I have a 70D and the 10-22mm btw.
