Pocket hand warmer packs are great for keeping batteries ready to go and not cold depleted. True it only gets down to about -5F where I shoot but they work fantastically.

I truly wonder if all these folks that go off about DR actually pay attention to Subject Brightness Range and Zones. You can chat all you want but does your work reflect actual attention to detail and texture in a wide Zone range say 3-7 at the very least?

It's hard to accept that it's "cheaper" as well, when it comes right down to it.

Yes, the lens itself might be a few hundred cheaper than the Canon version, for example, not not if you have to buy a new set of filters for it, in the 82mm range, instead of the typical 77mm. And then carry another set of filters around, just to use this lens.

In fact, about the only "pro" lens from Nikon or Canon that's 82mm is the Canon 24-70/2.8 II. Almost everything else is 77mm, which means an expense to use it, for a demographic generally looking to save.

Even for Canon, 82 is the new 77. Really, are you going to not buy the glass you want because of a filter purchase? Use it without until you can afford if it's a savings issue. Unless it's a field Macro lens or you shoot in crazy bad conditions, get the glass that's right for you and deal with the filter later (or buy a step up/down/ring)

Have fun with the new gear guys, I have (I hope) over 100k clicks or more left on my Mk3. Funny thing, I bet it'll still work when the new models come out!

All of their non competes are over as well then and those shooters will have a plethora of mags and rags to submit with.

2 sources help me make decisions

TDP and Lens Rentals. Anywhere else always leaves me scratching my head.

Having the 16-35 f/4L, I really have no desire for anything else, even the same glass with IS.

I know it is hard to find a perfect bag.
But I really want to avoid having many different bags. I hate owning stuff that I rarely use.
The Loka could fit my needs. I would like to actually see one before buying it. I live in Europe, I can't see on their website where it is on sale.
Looking at the picture I can see that the Tammy fits in. Not sure if a 70-200 would fit on top of that.
Anyone has tried one of these?:


Gee, that's a sentiment no one here has ever held ;)

Bags are like shoes and bike saddles, very hard to find the perfect one and it's usually a lifelong journey(Meanwhile you end up with a grundle of them)

As a recent owner of the 350 I can 4/5 star recommend the 450 Protactic by Lowepro. I *think* it can hold all you want. YMMV. But man this thing is SOLID. It makes my Lowepro Sport 15L seem like it's made out of tissue paper. Not the fastest for pulling/pushing your gear out of the bag but retains it very well and the storage options are numerable.

What's better than the 50 or 40? On my SL1, the EF-S 24 2.8 (with the forty in my pocket)

Yes! Thise teo pancakes make a very decent combo on an SL1/100D.

I'd love to have the same for my new 5d iii. But ungortunately, the 24 pancake is only EF-S.

The 40 IS the same as the 24 on a crop, well close enough. I love the 40 on my Mk3

Until I finally got around to getting the Mk2 24-70 2.8, I loved my Siggy 24-105.
