At the moment I'm done buying stuff...
Can anyone compare the 16-35 lens on a full-frame camera to the crop-body-angle-equivalent EF-S 10-22 on a crop-body camera? Similar sharpness? Better? Worse?
... I rather stick with a preset value
The Eg-S is available from Amazon and and other Canon retailers for less than $35. Can be installed on 6D, 5D Mark II and 5D Mark III for sure.
Sorry, haven't had a chance to read everything yet...If it's a debit card, call the bank. If it's a credit card, then call the credit card company or bank that issued. Sometimes the holds take a while to expire - this is almost always because of an issue on the bank/card side.Perhaps you should have taken the time. The issue under discussion involves a wire transfer...
QuoteA new 50mm will be coming in 2013, as the 35 f/2 gets replaced with a new IS version.Source: http://www.canonrumors.com/2012/11/two-lenses-to-be-announced-shortly/
Patiently waiting, any hope for a 50mm f/1.2L update? Buying something now dating back to 2006 is making me uneasy.
What would be your guess on how much of the lens can be used in a "new" 100-400?
Also, I am still trying to understand how similarly sized lenses (200-400 vs. 100-400) could be that different in price. I am guessing the "new" 100-400 would be in the 3k range, so 3x or 4x more for the 200-400. I would think that the primary driver of cost would be the speed and focal length on the long end, and that a zoom tele of x-400 f4 would be a little closer to a y-400 f4. Am I wrong to think this?
I got an explanation from the rep guy as to what causes the noise (please note I'm simply quoting him as I have no idea about this myself)
He said there's a brass or copper band around the inner barrel that has a brush mounted to it that reports focal length to the camera. And he had taken in 5 (!!) 24-70 2013 editions with the same exact problem. And he said that brush is simply mounted to hard so that it grinds, it's nothing faulty, and it would loosen up and become normal. He understand fully that I didn't want to wait to "break it in" so I simply got my money back.
