Lenses / Re: Review: Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II
« on: February 27, 2015, 03:31:49 PM »
Having been shooting around with the new 100-400..what this lens can do up close is stunning from the original..it’s such a big plus+... having that capability in that range, being able to get down eye level with wildlife, flowers and other subject matter. Additionaly its IS... I'll be using it at the Yuma airshow on Saturday with my 5D3..no TC...we shall see how it works out..

Total BS why Canon kept the ISO level lower..."testing". It's all marketing, at a whopping 50Mp you can bet the next 5Ds and 5Ds R wont have more MP's just a much better DR and better ISO..But not by much...perhaps a few added features...the 5D4 should have some serious features added coming down the pipe...

EOS Bodies / Re: What will become of the 5D Mark III?
« on: February 04, 2015, 03:54:39 PM »
5D3 is STILL a great camera. It will hold its own even after the 5D4 comes out maybe well into the Mark 5 as well. Low iso is allready great.. I would like to see cleaner and better low iso's (banding/dynamic range).. Only if Canon can improve the dynamic range considerably in the 4 and 5 will I consider upgrading.. Of course its going to have slightly better AF and perhaps improved functions overall but will they really be all THAT much better..It's hard to say..

Great shots Jason.  8)  I especially like the 2nd picture.

Much thanks Click!..I crept up on this guy only having my 70-200 with me...leaving my 100-400 back at camp..was lucky enough to get just close enough for a few quick snaps

Looks it might have a "manual" slide option or a twist...notice the band between the zoom and focus ring...might be a tension ring...?

I wouldn't mind it having the same ISO but better Dynamic range. Weather or not its in the processing formula or ISO is the big question...Sensor, Processor, ISO...? no banding at high ISO's in dark areas...

I love my 100-400 and the way it functions. This new design dosent sound all that great to me ???. I'll stick with what I have...Wonder if it will totally stop being produced?...
Thinking....Rather than purchase a 1.4 TC I'll buy a 1.6 TC in the 7D II...give me 160-640...being that I have 2 5D'3 and want a longer reach and faster shutter...bonus is having the improved AF/improved IQ...

Better than the 1.4X extender on the 100-400 ??...??...??

APS-C 100-400=160-640
Full Frame 100-400 w 1.4X=140-560

If Sigmas 150-600 is anything like their lenses of late...then its a 1-2 punch in the face of Canons new missing in action 100-400...
