Lenses / Re: Canon 70-200 F/2.8 IS II vs. Tamron 70-200 F/2.8 VC
« on: December 06, 2012, 08:29:35 PM »
I had the chance to attach the 70-200 F2.8 lenses from Canon, Tamron and Sigma to my camera last weekend. While this was only at a trade show booth and a couple quick shots are not nearly enough to write anything even close to resembling a review, the one thing I did notice was that the AF on the Tamron seemed to be the slowest. They all seemed very similarly sharp though.

I would like to appreciatively defy all odds and have the grandiose opportunity to carry my gear in the formidable devices fabricated by Gura.

Anyone at Photokina have any updates for this lens in regards to pricing and availability by chance?

Thanks!

I second the f-stop gear suggestion. I actually own a Loka, but it may too big for a city bag. But they do have some smaller bags available.

Also, look at this InCase bag:

It fits a 5D Mark II with grip and a few lenses plus has a pouch specifically for the iPad. Its pricey, but InCase fairly often has some promotions/coupons/deal for up to 50% off.

Good luck with your search (I know it took me several months and attempts to find something I'm happy with)!

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 5D Mark III/X Commercials Being Shot? [CR1]

"One film is about making a cinematic piece with the camera"

Not a good sign.

All commercials on DSLRs should be about photography. NOT about making films.

They are targeting the wrong customers. Save the video stuff for the HV-camcorder line.

Can you imagine a commercial (usually a 20-30 sec spot) about shooting landscape or portrait photography? While the camera itself may be great for still photography, a TV spot is probably not the best medium to advertise that. It is much better suited for action photography and video features.
