Single point auto focus

Just interested how many people use single point a/f most of the time,with the amount of options on all new camera's e.g af expansion/zone af/41 point/61point etc

I find i keep on going back to single point

EOS Bodies / 1DX Pricing starting to drop in Aus

1DX pricing has started to drop in Australia

I'am buying one next year just waiting for  New Year sales before buying it and I  rather get in the new year (like buying a car if you buy it in December it is already a year old in January)

Have been watching the price slowly come down in Australia over the last few weeks

Grey market is anywhere between $6199 to $6969

Canon dealers are between $7199 $7215 $7297 $7599

I was in Japan earlier this month  the 1DX is going for 648.000 yen works out to about $7623 Aus dollars 

So at the moment it is cheaper to buy it in Aus either way

thanks

Lenses / fd to ef lens adaptor/converter
« on: March 13, 2012, 06:42:13 AM »
Need advise on which one to buy that does work ok 

there seem to be plenty of them out there most seem to made in China

The reason for the adator is i Found a Canon 7.5mm f5.6 ssc fd fisheye lens i have had stored away for twenty years,i forgot i had it until went looking in some old camera bags today. i thought it might be fun to take some shots with it again,guess the novelty wore off it but i want to give it another go

this lens does not have a focus ring because everything is if focus,it has a aperture ring and a built in filter ring with sky/y3/o/r/cca4/ccb4 colours

The only thing i remember about buying it was it cost me about a months pay and i had saved for weeks to buy it,things you do when you want something you can't live without

EOS Bodies / Canon 1DX pricing in Australia
« on: January 14, 2012, 04:46:03 AM »
Canon 1DX  RRP pricing in Austalia" rip off"

Canon USA expected retail pricing around $6800

Canon AUS expected retail pricing around $9990

The aus dollar has been higher then the us dollar  but we still are going to asked to to pay more then $3000 more down here for the same camera. that about 45% more ??

Then if you buy the camera from the a us canon dealer canon australia don't warrant it here ??

I just don't understand why the huge price difference i know we are a smaller market but 45% more does not make sence
