Was it actually from Amazon? Or fulfilled by an Amazon seller?

Is Canon working on another mirrorless camera to replace the M2 (even though the US doesn't officially have it)? The hybrid sensor in the M2 that had better high ISO capability and a good EVF would be enough.
lensrentals should buy it...Quoteabout 20 of these lenses on the planet according
and outside? how many more?
On the other hand, if such a big player as Canon or Nikon would jump on the MF train that could really boost technology, in particular the currently mediocre high ISO noise performance of many MF systems (digital backs) could profit tremendously.
I will explain
Lately there have been quite a few occasions I wished I had an unobtrusive telephoto zoom. I have a 70-200 f/2.8L II IS, obviously not unobtrusive
-70-300L nice, but big and white
-70-200 f/4 also big and white
-70-300 non-L ain't too bad, but has dated autofocus I'm not a fan of
-100-400 big and white
-135L cant zoom; though if Canon updated this lens I might go this route anyway
So that leaves 70-300 DO on full frame, or 55-250 STM on crop. I have two 6Ds but have been contemplating getting a 70D also for some time.
I do know the pros and cons of each route, was just looking for opinions of others.
Not buying anything until after photokina as I want to see what the 7D2 looks like (and it will probably push down price of 70D).
i think the best way to go is to use a thunderbolt or usb3 external portable drive to store the raw/originals as well as the catalog/database of edits. the newer models have 2 hard drives in one enclosure in a mirrored raid in case one of the drives inside fails. just plug the external drive into whatever laptop you want to use and you have instant access to the latest files and their edit data (provided you have e.g. lightroom installed on both those 2 laptops).
if you are intent on using a NAS, it will be a better user experience to have that device on a dedicated gigabit ethernet wired LAN segment/subnet. configure the address manually on your laptops, without a default route/gateway. the wireless interface should be on a different subnet with a default route and dns server address so that it can access the access point or router and internet name resolvers.
so, get a gigabit ethernet switch, plug in the NAS to that switch, configure a private IP address (different than the wifi addresses) on the NAS, configure the IP's on the laptops within the NAS network address space (without default gateways), and then plug the laptops into the switch.
i think i remember that lightroom does not support network storage for files & catalogs but i could be wrong. and i don't even know if you're using that software or not.
Here are some angle of views
First column is 35mm focal length then the angle of view (not half angle, full angle) for the vertical, hortizonal and diagonal dimensions.
Equations are straightforward. Perhaps I should make an iPhone app.
35mm V 35mm H 35 MM D
11 95 117 126
14 81 104 114
16 74 97 107
24 53 74 84
35 38 54 63What would the angle of view be? Keeping tripod feet or your own feet out of frame could be a practical limitation, unless cropping to panorama format.
