if you like Olympus might be worth waiting until you can get a look at an OM-D...

i've seen a lot of people upset about the focusing points....

whole point of tt5/tt1 and ac3 is that you can choose to shoot ttl or manual selecting at camera.

and if using a manual and light meter just press test on your tt1to fire your speed lights. 

I have a 2nd tt1 and ac3 which i use to test my lighting so i'm not having to carry the camera around all the time.  but equally you could just take it off the hot shoe

I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about dumping all my Canon gear and joining the Nikon camp but after crunching all the numbers its simply isn't worth it for me. I have a 5dii, a collection of lenses and speedlites that i've amassed over the years and to sell it all and start again just seems crazy.

I know a lot of people on here are hurt to have to admit that Nikon has a "better" camera in the D800 but really, what would you do with that camera that you can't already do with your 5dii or iii?

What brought me back down from my i'm jumping to Nikon high was the fact that i have all the gear i need right now to cover (pretty much) every situation i encounter on my photographic endeavours.

I will be upgrading to a 5diii in the future (simply for the AF) when the price is right but for now, just because cameras like the D800 or 5Diii exist doesn't mean that my 5dii stops taking photos...

... now where's my 35mm 1.4L ii?  ;D

hate to say but a bad workman blames his tools.....

i'm told that the shorter the focal length the harder it is to put IS on a lens so a canon 24-70IS would be both physically large and expensive (although tamron are maybe saying it isn't the case).... it is the one upgrade i'd make in a flash though if canon ever make one...

I dont know why everyone still harps on about IS

I do not even think its necessary these days, the 5d mk II has good higher iso & no doubt
the 1dx and the upcoming mk III will exceed the previous versions

in any case, looking forward to this lens as on a budget. my guess is around 1600 at launch

noise is noise....  i want to use the lowest iso possible...

for a serious answer, i'd buy a mid level camera and lenses..  maybe decent light system.. and the rest of the cash i'd invest in training....

Thinking of selling my pocket wizards and canon flashes and going for the qflash system to give me a bit more flash power...

Just wondering if anyone has and what they think before i pull the trigger?



the inverse of the focal length....  so 1/50th for a 50mm 1/400th for a 400mm
