Lenses / Re: Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L Shipping This Week in United States

Well I'm glad my 16-35 f/4L satisfies my UWA cravings.

As a macro shooter I can't do without Live View so I guess I'm glad the video is there!

If Canon offered better focus screens, you wouldn't need live view!  :D

I mean, that really makes my point.  I'm not 100% with OP - there will be video, and that's a good thing, and a stills-only camera isn't realistic.  But still I want Canon to be sensitive to stills shooters and enthusiasts.  I believe in the SLR experience, where you hold the camera eyepiece to your eye.  Call me old fashioned.  I use Live View too but I resent that I have to because the focus screens are weak.

Not just weak, non interchangeable on that model.

Live view video stream for a svga lcd (at best) for short durations at a time is quite a low requirement  compared to 4k video capture for up to 29 minutes duration.

The entire camera, sensor, thermal concept, d/a componenta, electronics, heat sinks, codecs, firmware, menus etc. is different and more complex than a pure stills capture photo camera - even with live view.

That's great but I'm still glad.

Leica.

I see your point, I agree with your point but I accept Canon's decisions. I too am a stills only shooter. I use a 5D3, which can take amazing video in the right hands. There have been many threads and posts on the economics of adding or subtracting certain feature sets from a dslr and some folks get pretty heated up about it.

I see it this way, there quite a few functions on my camera that I don't use, video is only one of them. I just ignore those menus and set my custom functions to suit me.

Except for specialized shooting situations, I have yet to find anyone who isn't at the very least satisfied with the 16-35 f/4L. Lenses like this don't come along very often.

I'd love to see brush area selection improved. I'd like it to go beyond circular, elliptical and ovoid. Perhaps the ability to click an edge or boundary and pull the line in whatever direction you see fit in order to select only the section you wish to dodge/burn etc.

It's nice for once to have a critical piece of software that 'most folks don't consider needs too much of an upgrade. Good job Adobe!

I don't currently own any Sigma lenses but I have had a few in the past, two of them Art versions. I will return and pick up a 135 if they offer it.

When did Sony become the Dark Side? I have always thought that was Nikon. Fickle fanboys
