Thanks RLPhoto & SirPhil!
nice to see some 5DC owner opinion  ;)

so, SirPhil, comparing the Extreme 60mb/s to the Extreme Pro 90mb/S, you can actually tell the difference? I thought the 5Dc can't benefit from UDMA cards?

looks like i will be buying a 60mb/s 400x card at least, the question is 90mb/s 600X card benefit me at all?

even losing some speed? didn't expect that.....

any 5D C owner here shoot Raw + Jpeg? Raw itself takes time to clear buffer for me.... maybe its time to upgrade?

thanks for your reply, very informative! know nothing about those memory cells

Lexar do look faster than the Sandisk from Rob Galbraith's CF database, plus B&H is having a sale with them too!

does formatting the card frequently helps? if so, format at the computer or camera?

currently using Sandisk Ultra (probably their slowest card now  :-\ ) on my 5D1.

i find this combo to be very slow for writing speed (don't really care for reading speed).

and seeing these Extreme (not Extreme Pro) CF cards goes for $35 for 8GB at B&H, wondering if running one of these faster CF would benefit me at all? or is it limited by my buffer? which seems to be small?

I shoot Jpeg most of the time now becoz of this, shooting Raw is really lagging.

i assume the 5d2 and 5d3 has larger buffer, wondering what user with older Canon body like mine are using and want to hear their experience.

thanks for posting, and good news to know too!

i thought Canon had some VDSLR that pass the BBC test? no?

too bad the D600 can't do full manual control in video mode.

i didn't read the whole thread, but the op can consider the Sigma 17-70 F2.8-4, especially the newer one just announced in photokina.

or perhaps Tamron 17-50 F2.8, you can good optics but loos a bit range, but you already have those cover

the word "Crazy fast" to me sounds like you need the latest M4/3.

GF3, GX-1, EM-5, etc....

will wait for the Younguo (Spelling?) to make a replica unit of it.

didn't they replicate the ST-E2?

didn't even know there is a Canon 24-85 variable lens. must be old? how does it perform?

but the 24-85 Nikkor that comes with the D600 Kit is very compact, not tooo heavy as well.

i sure hope Canon can bring us some cheaper alternatives. maybe 24-85 F2.8-4 ? just like how Fuji "kit lens" has 2.8-4 on their 18-55.

Can you post some of your videos with that A99?  Not too many people have them yet.

Sorry, i didn't make it clear, i don't have the A99, but i think the SLT technology is the best if you want continuous AF in video mode, the A99 add a focus limiter so your focus wont jump during your clips, and the additional 100+ phase detection AF points embedded in the sensor, it tracks moving subject really well.

some complain i see is that AVCHD file size is smaller compare to Canon's newest, which is like broadcast quality if i am not mistaken

The T4i has some kind of continuous video AF, but its half decent. don't even come close to m4/3, NEX, Nikon 1, etc when it comes to video AF.

but the T4i is more for soccer mom, the 6D is not..... but i don't mind shooting my toddler sport activities with a FF A99 that do continuous video AF  ;)

Lenses / Re: Which to get next: 35 f/1.4L or 16-35 f/2.8L...?
« on: September 24, 2012, 10:37:05 AM »
if the OP decide to go 35L, i suggest you wait for the Sigma 35mm F1.4 just announced at photokina.

i love their 30mm F1.4 when i shoot crop, hoping the Sigma 35 will beat the 35L ?  ;D

so the dock is included?

adjusting AF speed is nice, but anyway to finetune AF instead of going to a sigma repair facility to make adjustment?

although i never have problem with sigma's AF, just want to know.... coz with that function, nobody can complain anymore?  ;)

i don't know what the "upgrade" is from the S100 to the S110, but the sensor size from Fuji's XF1 got me looking into their 2/3" alternative.

the difference between 2/3" vs 1/1.7" is much greater than 1/1.7" vs 1/2.3" small sensor.

will wait for some reviews thou.
