Lenses / New built-in TC lens
« on: January 24, 2015, 05:00:52 PM »

The 200-400mm's built-in TC seems seems to satisfy most customers. Have you heard some rumors about a new lens with this technology ? 300mm 2.8, 500mm f4, 400mm f4... ?

Thanks ! Have a nice day !

Lenses / Re: Tanzania with minimal gear
« on: June 21, 2014, 04:09:05 PM »
I just returned from a trip to Namibia (a little different from tanzania). Like you I had questions about the gear to take with me. In the end, as many members recommend, I went with 24-105mm and 70-300mm. It covers almost all my needs. You can take a look at some of my pictures if you want!

Personally I prefer the 70-300mm than 100-400mm especially concerning bokey (and weight)

Hope it helps

Video & Movie / Namibia - 5d III

I know a number of photographers dream of a trip to Namibia. I had the chance to spend a few weeks in May and I can say that the reputation of this country is not a lie. I think I have a relatively conventional route:
- Etosha
- Epupa Falls
- Khorixas area (incredible)
- Spitzkoppe
- Walvis Bay / Swakopmund
- Sesriem / Sossusvlei
- Back to Etosha!

It was my first safari experience so i made some mistakes in etosha but i think i have learned. I saw elephants (easy...), lions (male, female, children), leopards, cheetah... I do not think there are areas  better  than others. I still prefer Hallali, water points around are exceptional (many carnivores) and people are more respectful of nature. I was shocked to see that at Okaukuejo, everyone was laughing, talking loudly, without looking at the spectacle of the water hole...
If (with my limited experience) I had to give advice:
- Leaving the camp as soon as possible
- Do not drive like a maniac on the road
- Take detours (I saw lions in the middle of the road and so many other things ...)
- During the day, do not just look at the water point but the whole area around, especially the shadows

For equipment, I had a 70-300mm L   5dIII (also 24mm and 24-105mm). Of course sometimes i was too short, but the equipment has still allowed me to take some "acceptable" pictures . I let you judge.

Do not hesitate to ask questions!

Thank you for this answer. Indeed, it would be very useful. I keep in mind your idea of a kickstarter project !  :P

Canon General / TC switchable like built-in TC
« on: March 28, 2014, 09:11:57 PM »
It's probably stupid but can we imagine a tele-converter switchable like the one in the new 200-400mm ? I suppose that it's impossible due to the extra lenght that the TC creates between the lense and the camera but i wanted to be sure !  :D

Thank you  !

Just a question, is it the only DO tele patent ? You "heard" something for 300mm, 500, 600... ?

Price it at $2999 and you'll have quite a few takers who can't quite make the financial leap to the f/2.8 version

and those who want to have a 400mm f4 while they do hiking or traveling ;)
