If I could put my storm latches on my pelican case it would be perfect. The 1510 is a tested workhorse. Go for it.

Leave your feet on people! Let's not let the rest of the world, Non Photo Gentiles, think we are a bunch of weight conscious weenies!

Image Quality over weight or get out of the darkroom. (Or Internet Forum)

I'll cut you some slack if you are injured, disabled and whatnot...there's the 100L 2.8 Macro for that.

It will be a 1D Mark V in a 7D size body, hence the change to 1Dx because it is full frame.

no

This is so crusty and tired. It will be made of Unobtanium, have a crop mode, you will be able to control your Saeco machine via wifi, it will take 10 pounds off of women and smooth all wrinkles off your Shar Pei.

Look it will most likely have fast fps, a dual digic something, dual cards and be priced above the 6D and below the 5D3.

Beyond that we'll know when we'll know. Why on earth are people speculating it will and should have features above the 1D line is preposterous. The only thing I see it having better than the 5D3 is  interchangeable focusing screen capability and AF. And if it has a new AF it will not be far more advanced than the 5D3 but only incrementally better. Perhaps only in a way that benefits Servo modes.

Enjoy your 1.3 crop bodies, I just don't think it's realistic they're coming back. Meanwhile I hear there's a new Edsel, Pinto and Pacer coming this fall

+1

But...what's wrong with the old Pinto?  Aside from those pesky exploding gas tanks, I mean...

My Dad had one and the irony of it was that he had a Corvair as well.

Threads like these makes me think the H in APS-H stands for 'Holding out for something that won't materialize'

You made a great choice, the right one imho. I leave the foot on most of the time. It can be a great auxiliary grip if it fits your hand size and positioning. I too have the RRS lens plate for that model but there are many other brands that are fine as well such as Wimberly and other Arca Swiss compatibles.

I have owned 3 different Canon 70-200's and the Tamron with VC. I now have the Canon 2.8 Mk2 and would never consider anything else. Weight be damned, image quality comes first. Oh and build, nothing else will do.

Seriously, and this is rather difficult, I would go with the 1DX and 24-70 f2.8L II first. Next lens would be the 600 f4L IS II. Then 70-200 f2.8L IS II and then Zeiss 21mm f2.8. But the dilemma sounds more like a nightmare than anything else ...

Really? No Otus?

You guys are great and obviously have your priorities in order.

1. Family
2. Security
3. Beer
4. Photography

2 and 3 are interchangeable

I think I'll do a mountain of flip flopping on this topic in the next couple weeks. I like the idea of no gear worries, weight and care. The S95 and the SX40 aren't bad cameras and may just be the ticket to mas Presidente and a glorious tan.

Yes, yet another travel light but get all my potential focal lengths and apertures which I might want thread.

I will be at an all inclusive but will venture out a few times. (Probably use the 40 for those trips)This is strictly for holiday with a lot of drinking/sun/family/water laziness etc.

I'm taking a 5D3 and an S95, but haven't made up my mind on lenses. I am thinking small hotel safe, light packing, focal length needs, my styles. Hate this. lol,  I'll be packing in an Incase sling fwiw.


Here are my two ideas for a small bag:



1. Heavier-   5D3+ Sigma 24-105, Sigma 35 1.4, 40 pancake
I'd have a walk around for day, prime for low light and a tiny semi normal lens (discreet and light) for excursions.

2. Lighter-    5D3 + 40 Pancake and 100L Macro
Primes aren't as versatile but these are super light lenses as most here know. I'd lose my UWA but I like the 40's perspective and colors. We all know how awesome the 100L is for flowers and family.

Anyone who has been to Bavaro beach? What did you find you used the most?


TIA

Yawn... this is turning in a Nikon vs Canon thread.

You know what? When two photographers are fighting over Nikon/Canon, the third runs away with the Sony.


blah blah blah dslr brands. I'll take film brand/type debates over DR and pixels any day....the proof is much more easily digestible and seen.

5D3 + Sigma 35 (Old School)
5D3+ Sigma 35 , Canon 70-200 2.8L ll (See above + reach)
5D3+ Sigma 35 , Canon 70-200 2.8L ll, Sigma 24-105 (See above + walk around)
5D3+ Sigma 35 , Canon 70-200 2.8L ll, Sigma 24-105, Canon 100L Macro IS (See above + close and cozy)

Oh come now, not THAT well written. Cheeky yes, but eliciting 'Don't let the door hit you' comments nonetheless.
