Lenses / Re: Holiday packing help

As always: It depends on your shooting style. I would take the a wide angle, normal and tele.

24mm
40mm / 50mm (I love the 40mm for the size on the 5d)
70-200mm

15. Removed "support" for 3rd party batteries...

Really?

You can still use them, but you get a warning and they are shown as 100% charged.

Canon General / Re: some money left. what should I buy?

Buy what ever you need  ;)

The only thing missing in your list is the 5D III or 6D (when you want a smaller camera).

You could buy a universal lens for your 60D, like the EF-S 15-85mm.
If you like primes, you could buy something like 24L, 35L or 50L, a tilt-shift lens (TS-E 24mm or 17mm) or do you need some longer lens? 300mm IS II with converters or the 400mm IS II.

If it has to be spent on canon gear and you dont need anything, I would like to have a TS-E 24mm and the 24L  ;D

If none of the programs worked, and the programs actually did a deep drive scan (which takes probably hours), then you can't do anything. A file-recovery is successful, when you do it right after you deleted (including replacing) the file. If you wait too long (which you probably did), then the drive uses the sectors again and overwrites the data.

You can employ a professional company to try to recover your data. I have heard things about magnetic properties of disks that allow you to recover data after it is written over (not numerous times) but you are in the forensic territory there, sorry to say.

That is actually possible, but will cost you probably a few 1000$ per Gigabyte and you don't even know, if they recovery anything useful.

I'm sorry to say than, but your files are probably lost.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 6D pricing... so much difference worldwide
« on: November 28, 2012, 11:15:53 AM »
One reason is VAT.  In EU and most VAT countries, my understanding is that you have to advertise INCLUSIVE of VAT.  The US does not.

If you strip out the relevant VAT charge, you will be closer.  Now the fact that the US has lower sales tax or no sales tax at all (depending on where you live and how you buy), that is what each country/state votes for I suppose.

Now this is not the only one reason.  There are a myriad of others, like import duty, business tax and payroll taxes etc.  Take for instance the female employee at Canon USA. Canon has relatively no legal obligation towards her if she wanted to go on maternity leave, while the Scandanavian employee has a mandatory 2 years (if I recall correctly).  Regardless of who pays for that directly, the money has to come from somewhere.

Then last but not least is volumes and turnover.  Not a lot of countries beat the USA on this one.  Especially not us here in Canada where bodies are beginning to  come on par but not lenses.

In Switzerland you can preorder the 6D for 1965 Swiss Francs, which is around 2100 USD and INCLUDES tax. And Switzerland is obviously smaller than the USA (and Canada, Germany, UK, ...). The two stores, which have this price are not shady, I buy at both regularly.

New Tele-Lenses:
100-400mm/4-5.6 (<2500$) OR
400mm/4 IS USM (not DO) (<4000$) OR
500mm/5.6 IS USM (<4000$)

I have a 300mm/2.8 but want more reach...

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 24-70 f/4L IS Coming [CR3]

Its probably the kitlens for the 6d, but then it has to be small, light and cheap. So 450g and around 500$ street price? Everything else, doesn't make sense in my eyes.

I love the long end of the 24-105mm and that is the only reason i never switched to the 24-70/2.8.

Do you shoot weddings in switzerland?  ;D
