EOS Bodies / Re: 7D Mark 2 Preorders "sound off"
« on: October 13, 2014, 06:35:19 PM »
If you ordered one the first day, it should arrive in the first batch.  Amazon usually delivers a month or two after Adorama, but it seems to improve a little each year.  I think Canon gives priority to real camera stores. 
 
I pre ordered the original 7D, there was a lot of hype, but I already had a 5D MK II, and it was a big disappointment compared to the FF. I fully expect the same thing, lots of hype, but, in the end, its a crop camera sensor and limited by the area of the sensor.

How is Amazon not a real camera store?  They sell a ton of photography gear.  In fact, they have more options than any local camera store in the Phoenix area.  They may not quite have the selectivity of B&H or Adorama, but I guarantee you they are more of a camera store than the vast majority of camera stores (what you think of, at least) out there.

Amazon is a selling hub, calling it a camera store because they sell a lot of camera gear well, you also might as well call it a lingerie store. A deodorant store. A battery store etc etc. It's just Amazon and not a Canon Dealer.

Photography Technique / Re: Yellowstone in Winter - what to take?

I can't comment too much on the gear but I do know it can be really cold there.  I don't know what your cold weather experience is. But i would suggest you bring a lot of layers. It can get into the -20 during that time.  It is usually better but February and march are the snowy months.

Yeah I'm from Northern Utah and I always think I'm ready for the weather up there. Damn it gets bitter.

I'd go with a 6D and 7D II over a 5D3.

You're going to need both to beat a Mk3

do we really have to do 'the math'? Aren't crop factors and TC factors impregnated in our heads?

To produce stunning images, a professional doesn't need to understand the science of light, they just need to know what works for their images. Some photography educators are charismatic story-tellers, some are technically accurate, very few can be both at the same time.

And yes, people do make mistakes. I know in my previous job I used to offer technical training sessions and I would often find mistakes in my materials often while I was presenting something newly put together. I've heard a couple of pro photographers in seminars who claim to love using their Canon EF 24mm f/1.2 L or Canon EF 24-70 f/1.4 L or (2.8 IS)... I just let it slide because it's more important to get the gist of what they're really trying to convey rather than nitpick the little details and derail their communication process.

You can't just come along spouting common sense and rational responses to everyone here!
Next we'll all be singing Kum Bay Ah

Timbuk 2 will never let you down

+1

Actually +5...I have that many, yes.

I have 3, my son has one. You can get an inset if the 'snoop' isn't right for you, they're pretty much bomb proof

I passed on the Tamron 150-600 due to the long end not being as sharp as I would care for so I'm going to take a long hard look at the Sigma C version.

Low light and iso yes (7D vs 5D3)

I would take a wild stab and say for most with multiple bodies and/or a great deal of glass it's economics. That is if you are dissatisfied...my 5D3 and all it's playmates work just fine thank you.
