That's a story that is all too common.
I prefer to buy cards from a reputable camera store, but will buy ones that are sold by Amazon, but not a third party unless its a store I know. Adorama, for example, sells on Amazon, but not thru the Amazon Prime.
Chinese sellers are getting clever, and shipping stock to Amazon to sell on their Prime program. Most of them are honest, but counterfeit batteries and flash cards are so common in China that it can be difficult for a buyer to know who the real seller is.
Actually all I can share is that quite often my camera can't focus on wide angle, but when it locks everything is just fine. It's not connected with anything like shutter speed, it's only AF system.Besides, I was told by one technician that this is impossible to repair, though I'm not sure now that he's competent.
I'm gonna AFMA it this week, hope it'll help.
I actually noticed that the problem I described appears only when I use wide angle lenses
The wider the angle, the bigger the problem — when I go to 16 on 16-35 it becomes totally obvious that something is wrong.
Thanks for the information, Besisika, it gives me hope. I'm sure that, with that second production facility, the wait times will shrink soon.
ifp, I'm guessing you ordered soon after that review appeared here on canonrumors? Same here.
I placed an order for it on 4/1 from BH so I'd have plenty of time before a July trip - haven't heard anything yet. Status is still "On Order". I wonder what the current lead time is.
there is a quite a backlog for them as they are super popular
So thats why the 6d has pathetic battery life compared to any rebel or the 60d. great
Have you the Tammy? Can you contribute for anything here at all?
In the case of the 1D X, you have 6.95µm pixels, or an area of 6.95^2µm: 48.3µm^2. The 7D has 4.3µm pixels, or an area of 4.3^2µm: 18.49µm^2. Again, because were working in two dimensions here, it's not a linear scale, you can fit 48.3/18.5 7D pixels into one 1D X pixel. That comes out to 2.61x 7D pixels per 1D X pixel. You would need a 2.6x TC in in order to completely normalize the crop difference between the 7D and 1D X, all else being equal.
