Canon General / Re: When does the year of the lens start?
« on: Today at 09:13:28 AM »
You mean Canon's year of the lens. (And fwiw, many here will state Canon never said it was TYOTL yet it was a CR thing)

No one has missed Sigma's, it's still going!

Canon General / Re: What do you Cheap Out On?

Wasabi batteries.

That's about it. I used to cheap out quite a bit but have seriously pared down my gear and it's left me with only top shelf hooch. I'm good.

The 400 is actually a IS not an HS model. Good kids camera. My 12 year old loves her SX series

The Canon body tech spec gaps are closing in and there needs to be a lineup refresh. The 6D, 50D to 60D gaff and the proposed 7D2 specs all muddied the waters and when you see other industries doing such a thing it leads to consumer confusion. Well, not for us smart kids in the CRF.

"Yeah, but you should see the other guy (gal)"

No. When I not ready to shell out for using a private lab's drum scanner I use the Nikon SuperCoolscan 4000ED at my schools lab. BUT, what I really had a good time with was an Ion iPics 2 Go machine and the iPhone app for said box. Easy, versatile and FAST.

Have a meeting, tell them you're flattered. Go in with your local property laws digital on your smartphone or memorized. Ask them to meet you halfway. It's just snapshot after all.

EOS Bodies / Re: 7D now marked as DISCONTINUED at Amazon

This is nothing I personally discontinued it right before I got my 5D3.

The more and more I think about this the more Sigma Art lenses stay in my bag. Two exceptions, tele and macro.

amazon seller account

"Mr. Badguy, here is my camera body..no, you don't want this big long white lens...it's an old worthless model" ;)

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

Lenses / Re: Yes! Finally, the 70-200 f/2.8 II

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.


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


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.
