I also saw someone using a T2i with a 300 f/2.8. XD
Backup body, perhaps?

Probably. Looked hilarious though, haha. 

I might have seen it actually. I saw a body the shape of a 7D (non-griped), but couldn't see a mode dial on top. It had black tape covering the Canon logo and the places where the potential "7D" and "Mark II" badges would be. It was paired with 200-400 f/4 IS. It was during the first game between Croatia and Brazil. :O

Yawn. The tele market is already flooded with lenses, but we are still waiting for a sharp UWA-zoom from both Canon and Sigma.

This is awesome. Now, Sigma, give me that 135mm f/1.8 OS please? 8) :D

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 70D Announced

I'm a videographer, but I'm thinking about switching from my 5D Mark II to the 70D if the noise isn't too bad. The main reasons is that the 70D has a Digic 5+ processor, which is the same as the 5D3 if I'm not mistaken, right? If the magic lantern team manage to hack the 70D, which I'm sure they are, that could enable 1080p RAW video recording. Also that AF in video recording looks quite handy when its hard to focus manually. Lastly, its a generally better camera, functions wise, than the 5D2, which only has the fullframeness to brag about, which although is really nice, but I could give that up for generally better specs and that lovely processor. :3

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Big Canon EOS 5D Mark II Price Drop Coming

I've been looking for a used 5DII for a few months now, almost bought one a few times now. I really hope this price drop affects Sweden too, because if they were to start selling 5DII bodies new for around 11.000 Kr (coinmill.com, US to Swedish currency conversion) that'd be super great! :o :)

Also, I'm going to use it mainly for filming so the "outdated AF" etc wouldn't really bother me that much.

Aha. I see. Thanks! :)

EOS Bodies / What does the "D" in all camera bodies mean?

I've been thinking about this for a little while now, but I still don't know the answer.
What does the "D" actually mean in camera model names such as 5D, 7D, 6D, 550D, D7000, D800, D90 and so on?

Can't wait. If Canon is to announce a new cheaper Full Frame/7D Mark II, 70D, 6D, I might buy it if it's under $2000. If not, or if it's released next year, I'll buy a 5D Mark II. It's price has really dropped recently. :)

Lenses / Re: If you can have ONLY 3 lenses, what would they...???
« on: August 14, 2012, 09:44:04 AM »
I'd go with a wide angle, normal and tele i.e. 16-35mm L II, 24-70mm L II and 70-200mm L IS II. :)

I am a young pro cameraman (mostly documentary) who has earned enough money that I would feel comfortable upgrading from my personal camera from a T2i to a FF camera. So my decision is, do I buy a 5D II right now or do I wait until Canon announces their new entry level FF camera. It seems like the price will be about the same so I am torn. My usage of this camera will be 75% video, but I also do some side photography. I need to start compiling some pros and cons because at this point in my life dropping $2K is a pretty big deal.

I'm sure it would be best to wait for the official announcement of the new FF camera before I make my decision, but I am impatient and if the answer if the 5DII I want to get it right away.

This sounds like it was me who wrote it... XD I'm in the exact same position..
