It's confirmed it's a firmware issue, update coming soon. Not clear on the details yet, but I heard it doesn't have to do with personal settings, so no point right now in going crazy comparing settings. Will find out more tomorrow.
Thank you for the info.

A bit outdated now, though, since this issue was addressed with a firmware update.

The best way to handle filters for lenses such as this is to do what they do with the big telephoto lenses and put the filter at the rear of the lens.

Do you think Canon will (if it's even possible) design such a lens to take a drop-in holder like the supertele lenses?  A slot for gels doesn't work for a CPL, for example, and even on UWA lenses they are useful for reflections and increasing saturation, e.g. foliage shots.

I'd say 70-300L. The 5DII will give you ~1.5 stops higher ISO for the same noise, which will compensate for the f/5.6 long end. In terms of DoF, f/2.8 on APS-C is like f/4.5 on FF.

Afterall, which camera has done more innovation with digital cameras recently, Canon or Sony?
And which company has done as little as possible?
Oh, you're bashing Canon? Big surprise. No innovation the last year? Where have you been?

Well, that's dilbert for you. Confuses lenses with cameras and talks out of both sides of his mouth.  Just recently, dilbert started a thread about the SX50 being the best superzoom ever, and now Canon has done 'as little as possible'.  ::)

Looking at the patent, probably no front filters.

Quote from: Sony Rumors
The RX200 will have an improved 28-140mm f/1.4-2.2 lens (compared to the current 29-105mm f/1.8-4.9)

If true, 140mm f/2.2 means a substantially bigger lens assembly, meaning the RX-200 would lose the current form factor - one big reason for its popularity.  I'm very tempted by the RX-100, but if the successor won't fit in a jeans pocket like the current model, no interest from me.

Lenses / Re: AFMA Accuracy vs. Precision
« on: May 12, 2013, 06:25:53 PM »
Just wanted to pose a question to those with sufficient experience AFMA testing and adjusting several lenses and bodies.

I've got a little bit of experience with AFMA...   ;)

I'm with AlanF on this. I have not noticed any difference in precision with an AFMA applied (based on FoCal and on substantial empirical observation). I do notice the difference with the high-precision AF points, and also between bodies (my 1D X is more precise than my 7D, which is more precise than my 5DII).

Ordered 43mm B+w nd64, and already have a 43mm cpl on way.


Happens to me on occasion.  Last time, the word "comes" turned out to be the culprit. Go figure...

Links are fine, Ben.  ;)


Your review is one reason I went with the TVC-33 - thanks again!

I have the Gorillapod SLR Zoom (bought when I had a Rebel T1i/500D) and the Joby ballhead (a bit annoying due to the dedicated 1/4"-20 plate), I have been considering replacing it with the Focus, and I like the idea of using a BH-30 on it (especially since I have one on my TQC-14).

Incidentally, at a brick and mortar shop a few months back, I ran across (and bought) a Joby SLR-Zoom Flash Clip, a cold shoe that clicks into the BH-1 ballhead that I have on the SLR-Zoom.  So I'll be able to use that with a 600-EX RT as a more flexible Justin clamp.

It won't sit flush, so the plate won't go in a clamp. One user here took a Dremel to the RRS plate to countersink the FastenR-T1, and reported that worked well.

Personally, I attach a FastenR-3 to a Kirk 1" clamp (QRC-1) with Loctite for each of my BR straps.  Gives me a secure connection that I can easily move from body L-bracket to lens plate and remove for tripod/monopod mounting.

EOS Bodies / Re: No 7D Mark II in 2013? [CR2]

The CR regulars seem to be in a belligerent mood on this thread.
There you go.... it has to be about the "weed dance".... you just gotta be smokin weed to try and follow this topic!

I suppose we'd be less belligerent if we were...   8)

Quote from: Nikon
Super ED glass also boasts a higher refractive index than fluorite,
making it highly capable of correcting aberrations other than
chromatic aberration.....

So it can correct other aberrations (as can other elements in Canon lenses)...but does Super ED correct CA as well as fluorite?  Nikon carefully didn't state that...

You have to disable Live View Silent Shooting.

What do you think of aperture?i use lightroom and on occasion go into photoshop.

I like Aperture - a great UI and excellent for library management.  But not a great RAW converter - I triage in Aperture, use DxO for RAW conversions, then bring the jpgs into Aperture.  I use CS6 for creative editing.
