So you're gonna keep us in suspense and not even list what you bought?   ;)

LR 5 is in beta. Does this mean no release except by subscription?  I've got CS6, and I'm quite happy with DxO and Aperture, but maybe it's worth buying LR while I can, just in case...   ???

According to "The Queen" of Lightroom, it appears we are OK.  Lightroom will exist in the cloud model but not exclusively.

Thanks!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Do you trust your camera?
« on: May 06, 2013, 06:44:56 PM »
I didn't trust my 5DII - I always took multiple shots so I could pick the the best.

I trust my 1D X - I always take multiple shots because I leave it set to 12 fps, and even a brief press of the shutter fires off 2-3 frames.  ;)  I agree that sorting through them is a bit annoying, as I really don't need to delete due to missed focus. But with kids, it helps because I almost always get one with no blinks.

100-400 f4-5.6 IS II

Yeah, I'd have voted for that one.

6201
As the saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is...

6202
I had purchased one and a place was held on my credit card but it seems that has now disappeared.. i assume they cancelled all orders.

As expected.  I would guess the online orders depleted their electronic stock, then a human reviewed it and discovered the price error, canceled the existing orders, and they again had stock.

EOS Bodies / Re: No 7D Mark II in 2013? [CR2]
« on: May 06, 2013, 03:27:49 PM »
Although, if it means a 7D2 with tweaked 7D AF and an old process sensor way behind Exmor and a 3D with 40MP and 3 less stops DR than the D800 for $6000 though.... gonna really get ugly this time.  :o

Ugly in here, probably. Out in the real world, though, as usual Canon will sell them like hotcakes...

6204
Indeed...I could sell mine for a tidy profit.  But I'd rather use it!  (I do have an ExpressCard/34 CF reader for my 17" MBP, too.)

EOS Bodies / Re: Where's the 1DX firmware?
« on: May 06, 2013, 03:16:23 PM »
Ok, I'll correct you.  ;)

Canon announced they would release the Speedlite AF assist fix for the 5DIII in April (which they did, rolled into the larger update announced 6 month previously), and that the 1D X AF assist fix would be released in May (IIRC, they stated 'late April' for the 5DIII and 'late May' for the 1D X).

Edit: yep, I R'd C...

i did use a cokin CPL on a lot of these shots including this one.

I see...in that case, a little softness at f/10 (which should be quite sharp, otherwise) doesn't come as a surprise.

Reviews / Re: Review - Canon EF 24-70 f/4L IS
« on: May 06, 2013, 01:37:34 PM »
Good review, but I still don't really understand the purpose/use for it in the lineup, especially given the cost vs. the 24-105/4L IS (which delivers similar IQ).

It's the 3 sentence logic often found in politics (see Yes, Minister):

1. We have to do something (24-105 is getting old, significantly better iq update would be too expensive, 24-70/2.8 is w/o IS and also too expensive for the general crowd)

2. This is something we can do (manufacture a lens with decent iq, Canon-only tech hybrid IS, macro mode, good profit for Canon and potential to lower the price after some time like the 6d)

3 = 1+2: This is what we must do.

So, basically this lens is a solution in search of a problem.

6208
FWIW, I'd have used a CPL on the shot, which would have boosted saturation and contrast in a way that PP can't really match.

6209
sounds tosh to me
Great and helpful post.

Most of his posts are similarly 'helpful'. And a signature full of links. Imagine that...   ::)

Lenses / Re: Any one ever seen a zoom extender
« on: May 06, 2013, 12:15:49 PM »
Em...no.

The OP is suggesting a zoom extender, i.e. twist a ring on the extender to zoom from a 1.4x to 2x.
