Sorry, but not the same thing for me: one reduces the image circle, the other enlarges it.

Which are you saying enlarges the image circle? This adapter and what I described take a full-frame image circle and concentrates onto a smaller area (the size of a crop sensor). This has two effects: the light circle is brighter, and the crop sensor now has a similar angle of view through that lens as if it were a full-frame sensor.

.71x focal length means the focal length is 71% what it was before.

This makes me happy. I wondered in a post on this forum if such a thing were possible and now some one has gone and done it. I must be a smart guy! ;-)

I used my 5D Mk III and 24-105 in light to medium rain for over an hour with no problems.

good luck with your own shoot, bchernicoff!

Thanks. When I got there we ended spending most of our time talking about what he wants to do long term. He's interested in portraits as well as shooting his work and wants to convert one of the rooms in his workshop into a small photography studio. The room is large enough and has a high, matte-black ceiling, so it's perfect. We're going to work to get it setup over the next couple of weeks. I'll let you know how it goes. I did mention that there were probably other people in the area that would pay to use it, so we'll see what he thinks.

It's not just Canon. When my father owned a camera store in the late 90's he could buy Kodak film at Sam's Club cheaper than he could get it from his Kodak rep. Volume based price discounting has killed small retailers.

Sorry as I am now a Ex Jessops employee I can honestly say that all cameras were a loss leader.. The trade price on a 7D was around £1100 or more.. Jessops made huge losses on cameras sometimes well over £150.. The idea was to try and compete in the market but sell profitable items like memory cards etc with the cameras.. I shall greatly miss Jessops as I was a devoted customer before I worked there..

78 years of trading and servicing the general public has been torn apart in less then 2 days..

Sorry to hear you've lost your job. Hopefully, you can find something soon.

I just found this thread. Did you ever find a place? I'm about to start working with a guy in Alexandria on something similar.  We are looking at using his workshop space for the shoots.

It's a sad day for our British friends.

Nikon J1. I bought refurb with 10-30 VR lens for $340. Great little camera.

Lenses / Re: Canon 24-70mm F4 IS - anybody bought one yet ?
« on: January 04, 2013, 03:52:28 PM »
Even if this lens was exactly what you wanted, why would order one now? Recent history has demonstrated that the price will drop by at least 30% in a few months.

There have been a lot of people bashing Canon on this site recently for the price drops. I'm not one of those people and understand why it happens. I'm not bashing them now, but the question being asked is whether anyone has bought one yet. I think the answer has to be "no" unless you have some urgent need for this exact lens. You could buy a 24-105 now and sell it later when prices come down.

Actually, it's looking like I am going to sell my 24-105 and get the Tamron. I'll be trading reach and filter compatibility for improved IQ and one stop of light.

So, when it drops to $999-ish it would be a good alternative to 24-105. Smaller and lighter with macro and better optics and improved IS.

The steps get farther apart the higher you go. I've had the 1D Mark IV for a long time now.

Uh oh, looks like you've been demoted...

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Review - EOS 6D By Gizmodo
« on: January 03, 2013, 09:55:17 AM »
I've noticed that over the last 18 months or so the quality of Gizmodo's content has gone way down. I haven't used a 6D so I can't comment on their review.

You are being mocked for asking this.

The GoPro was designed from the ground up as an action video camera.
The 7D was designed to be a very capable still photo camera with a cinema mode. I wish people would stop calling it a video mode. The cinema mode is designed to allow cinematographers to film things cheaper and with smaller gear than possible traditionally. No matter how much people might want to think of them as a video camera, they aren't.
