Lenses / B&H USED DEPT Supertele
« on: January 27, 2015, 01:21:05 PM »
Dear all
I wish to purchase my first supertele- preferably 300mm 2.8  IS version I for sports and maybe some wildlife with use of Tele 1.4III or (2III after I will purchase this one) in the future.
To cut story short. I wonder if anyone bought used lenses  from B&H store. How their rating system for used lenses look in reality. Your thoughts and experiences
I'm not U.S resident so buying from CPW is not an option  :( If someone ask me to pull trigger for Version 2
Any info appreciated
Regards

Lenses / Re: The f/4 Pentacon
« on: December 31, 2014, 01:46:43 AM »
Leaving for a trip pretty soon, and wanted to assemble the best range, lightest weight, reasonable speed, and affordable outfit I could, and ended up with these five guys I dubbed "The f/4 Pentacon". Did not set out to select all of them with f/4 but it just sort of happened that way. No real questions or issues here, just thought it was interesting to share ...
8-15/4 L
16-35/4 L IS
24-70/4 L IS
70-200/4 L IS
300/4 L IS

If  only 200-400mm F4 Tele would be much lighter and more affordable you would have perfect quintet ;)
By replacing 300mm F4

Lenses / Re: buying advice: canon 85mm f1.2 II or f1.8?
« on: December 18, 2014, 03:37:03 AM »
The 85 f/1.8 is not even close to the 85L

Try these on a 85 f/1.8 :P:









Clartephoto these are really nice
 Unique look and that blur.... Simply amazing
Now I really want one

Hi all, I'm here again with a buy question: lots of online reviews state that the 85mm f1.8 is nearly identical to the f1.2 II in terms of image quality when stopped down to f2. It even focuses faster than the L version. All that the f1.2 version has going for it seems to be that it is very sharp wide open, and has slightly better sharpness and contract than the f1.8 version. Again, money is not an issue here. Is the f1.2 II worth my money with nearly identical visuals and even slower focus, to be offset with f1.2 for low light conditions? Let me know your real-world thoughts! Thanks!

dash2k8 you should get 1.2L version You said money is not an issue.
Don't want to spend money , rent 1.2L before you purchase to make your decision more firm

I just found that B&H Photo no longer keep  expected availability November 2014
Adorama still keeps it expected availability November 2014
Camera Canada shows no expected date of availability
No news emerge in net. No new sample photos
Is this means that release of this item can be next year?

Welcome to CR forum Dawid
Very nice pics. I wonder how much did you cropped (if any) your pics from football field using 300mm f2.8? Amazing job with 6D
I like the one taken @ 17mm f4 in basketball arena
Keep up good work

Lenses / Re: Canon 600mm f/4L IS II USM Purchase
« on: October 10, 2014, 07:37:53 AM »
I don't believe Canon has ever offered a rebate on the 600mm lens.  I'd encourage you to check out canonpricewatch.com's current 'street price' deal – it's several hundred less than I paid for my 600 II around two years ago.
+1 on CPW-Street Price: http://www.canonpricewatch.com/product/03580/Canon-EF-600mm-f4L-IS-II-USM-price.html

I recently bought 200mm f2 IS through them. A+ service from CPW. The best thing is the lens is BRAND NEW/SEALED from US authorized dealer(very well known) with Canon 1yr standard warranty. Couldn't ask for any better.

Does anyone knows if they selling it outside US. I'm not talking about this lens in particular. Just out of curiosity? Some great deals I see there
Regards
You can get it in practically every country on earth. But the US has always had the lowest prices.

Excuse my lack of knowledge in this matter. Does this street price referres to price in any shop on the street or in particular shop.
Unfortunately the best prices here ( where I live) cannot beat those from  B&H photo after shipping and custom taxes ( only for more expensive bodies and lenses $2000+ )

Lenses / Re: Do you keep all your boxes?
« on: September 21, 2014, 02:50:40 PM »
I keep all the boxes since I bought my first DSLR in 2007. I have 2 large plastic boxes each 135L dedicated only for this purpose ;) 8)
I think when you try to re-sell it is more easy to ship although you still need to buy some bubble wrap or something.
Also I 'd like to think that if I sell it again buyer will not question mine ownership. ( Still I could steal it from someone like me  ;D and claim ownership unless he/she registered the product)
Somehow I need them around even I do not really need them.

Lenses / Re: Official: Canon EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II
« on: September 15, 2014, 01:43:37 PM »
It is a dramatic improvement, and they seem to have solved the contrast problem. However, it is now only 250g (1/2 lb) lighter than the 300mm f/2.8 II and so you pay your money and takes your choice between two outstanding lenses. I'd love to try the 400 DO. 800mm is very attractive with a 2xTC but we'll have to wait to find out what the AF is like at f/8.

For some (me included) this might be a Big dilemma between excellent  300mm f/2.8 II and 400 DO II ( looking promising). Can't wait to see first reviews and pictures from production models
