Came across this link buried 2 or 3 layers down at Canon Watch. Suggests it will be called a 7D Mark II and will have GPS

Absolutely, positively can’t wait for the next UPDATE to this CR thread …or better yet, getting the real scoop. Been saving gift cards/cash for 18 months now and unless this new 7D2 (or whatever it is called) in in the stratosphere, I am in for a new crop sensor camera. Currently have the 5D3, SL1 and M. looking for a wildlife/sports camera body :D

Lenses / Re: 85mm f1/2L II and event photography?
« on: August 22, 2014, 03:34:19 PM »
I am curious to know why no mention of the 135 f/2L USM as a alternate lens is not referred to in this thread. Is the autofocus too slow or reach from 85 to 135 make it less attractive for wedding photographers?
I used the 135 for events (but not weddings), but generally it's too long for a lot of applications.  It's good in big rooms or outdoors from a distance, but I always found the 24 & 50 to be better suited, at least for my style.

Ok... understand the reach issue indoors... I've used the 135mm indoors only in big rooms or gyms (not smaller rooms and I have never done a wedding). On a separate issue, I have not been impressed with my Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens... I have found that the pictures appear to be flat/dull...do you folks think I need to go to the L f/1.2 to get comparable quality to my 135mm ???
Yes, the 135 works well in large rooms - see shot below taken in a large warehouse-sized event/exhibition space @f/2, 1/160, ISO 3200 - but is a little long for general event use. 

On the other hand, the 50L is essentially a 50 f/1.4 with a tougher build, better AF motor, weather sealing, better flare resistance, with better resolution and contrast below f/2.8.  The bokeh is a bit smoother and the colors a bit punchier, but they are far more alike than different, at least above f/2.  If you're unhappy with the 50 f/1.4 below f/2 and plan to shoot at f/2 or below, it's probably worth the upgrade.  If you don't like the f/1.4 from f/2 to 2.8, you're probably not going to find the 50L to be much better.  To answer your question - yes, the 50L is more like the 135L in terms of color and contrast.



Ok thanks for the advice. I may rent one (50mm f/1.2) just to try it out.
