http://www.canonpricewatch.com/ has a "group buy deal" going on for some pretty sweet lenses. The one that caught my eye is the aforementioned lens, though there are others. That's over $1300 off. Nice!

You've gotten some good advice here. My contribution would be to advise that you get a tripod that is tall enough (with ballhead attached) to bring your camera's eyepiece to eye level without raising the center column. Even on the finest tripods, using the center column should be avoided as it introduces unwanted movement. A well made and reasonably priced set of legs that will do this is the Sirui M3204X. I would also suggest you have a look at a Markins Q3 ballhead. They are simple to use, buttery smooth, small, lightweight and are solid as a rock.
I almost got a heart attack there, just like how I almost got one when I tried looking up for 300mm F2.8's price.
So that means that I want a tall tripod, even though this usually translates to heavier tripods, right? You are also saying that a direct support from the three legs rather than having an extra section is better, right?
i paid $25 for a pu120 for the tamron 150-600
another annoying note on the tamron is that the foot only have 1 hole for a lens this size i would have prefered a double hole for mounting the arca plate
Happy LionsFood and sex - an interesting mixture for sure...
Canon specifically said WiFi wasn't built in due to concerns from their military customers. That's why it's the optional module.
The 6D comes out in a WiFi and non-WiFi version - or is that a GPS and non-GPS version? Either way, that's a truly weak excuse on the part of Canon.
Am I the only one incredibly psyched about the rumors that have been floating around about a few rumored (unannounced) Sigma lenses?
There have been rumors of several incredible ideas:
135mm f/2.0 OS
Dear god, please make these lenses a reality.
Don't know why we need another 24-70 lens, but a 16-20 that doesn't have a bulbous and curved front element like various 14-24's and others would be very welcome.
that's a sweet setup (cam/lense)
That tripod looks like it couldn't possible hold that weight.
Is it stable?
I was having trouble reading the label, did it say "Desmond"?
what is the manufacturer and model?
