Lenses / Re: supply of 16-35 f4 is and decision on WA for travel
« on: February 25, 2015, 06:06:05 PM »
Well..the 16-35mm f/4 IS is just a great, great lens..it just hits the sweet spot with price and performance and the IS just makes it a no brainer.  Surprised that  Canon produced this....I have the Sigma 50mm and the 35mm Arts and I plan on getting the new 24mm Art as well....  I think it will kick the Canon in the buttocks....performance and pricewise....
I would imaging that Canon will replenish Canadian stock on the 16-35mm f/4 IS long before summer...Have you contacted a dealer and inquired about a preorder so that you could reserve one so that it is yours when it arrives.
It they don't come ...I think you can just cancel the order with no penalty if some other opportunity comes your way.

I sold my f/2.8 to buy my f/4. (Even trade for a better lens!...that never happens.). No looking back...If you have used both you just put one down and use the other because it's so much better. I know that I did!  8)

This is awesome to read. I've updated my review with this information and linkage to the article.  Roger's work is invaluable because, unlike we lens reviewers, he has intimate knowledge of what works in internal construction.  The photography world is a better place because of him  :)

Here HERE!   I second that thought...Roger and his team have furthered my knowledge of photography in ways that always surprise me....and all that from a guy who has been known to wear a lens case on his head as a hat.  Ya have to love it!

My GAS just acted up a bit.  I need some chamomile.

Yes...Yes..... I have the 35mm and the 50mm Arts....should I just make this a clean Trifecta....I mean....it would further justify my Sigma Dock if I use it for 3 lenses instead of just 2, right???  :P

Apparently the demand for Blurry 36MP High Resolution Exmor shots was not what Sony had hoped ;-)  They couldn't AF track Beast mode.

Well...if the last play of the SeaHawks had been Beast Mode...the game would have been over.  What dumb bells...they let the Ball-Deflators win!!??

EOS Bodies / Re: POLL: How many mp do you want anyway?
« on: January 31, 2015, 08:33:57 AM »
25MB is fine with me...I just want black blacks, and increase DR.
I have a 5DIII....I will not be buying one of the 50MP cameras...and I doubt that I see a 5DIV in my future.
The camera I own is REALLY quite suitable for my needs.   Does it compare to some newer offerings out there...no..but at this point if you have a good photograph...no one is really going to notice!
...but that is no excuse for Canon not to improve.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Firmware: EOS 5D Mark III Version 1.3.3
« on: January 29, 2015, 01:55:08 PM »
I'm concerned about what Canon are doing in the background with this f/w "upgrade", what they aren't saying. Alarms for me include the fact that it's something you can't unroll, once this is in, that's it. No going back.

I also read somewhere that they are taking a hard line with third party batteries - has anyone spotted anything weird with using them after this update has been applied? I have six batteries and three of them are (good quality) third party units from Calumet and Hahnel. I don't want them mucking around with what battery I choose to put in my camera.
Just checked with the new firmware installed on my 5D III.
I have 3rd-party batteries and they work fine.  I get the same message that I always got... "! Cannot Communicate with this battery. Use this battery?" . ...to which I reply OK and the battery then operates the camera perfectly but I do not get read out of the charge on the battery..that is the only downside but that is the way my 3rd-party batteries have always operated with my camera.

The Canon website says the firmware file specifically will be 18.94MB.

Does the firmware totally replace the previous firmware or is this 19mb just an update?  That's a lot of data

I never realized these firmware files were so big.

That is what their website and my computer say for the file size.
Replacing or updating the firmware...I have no idea....it just changes to the new version.

FYI ...I do not use ML (too afraid   :P)...so I updated my 5DMarkIII using a CF card. I use Mac operating system.  I downloaded the update and followed the instructions in the instruction file...but Canon has it wrong, (at least to my reckoning). You would think that they could get something this simple right. The instructions say to download the version 1.3.3. I use OS 10.9.5.
The Canon instructions say to check the file size of the downloaded file on your desktop with the specification for the file size on the Canon website. Just so you know...they do not match up.  At least they did not on my iMac. The Canon website says the firmware file specifically will be 18.94MB. My firmware update file was 17.99MB.   So if you are detail oriented...don't be alarmed...Canon is off by 1MB on the file size.   I thought that maybe Canon was referring to the whole download, which includes the instruction file...but that doesn't match up either!  LOL! The whole download (firmware and instruction file) is 19.9MB.
So if the actual firmware file that you load on the CF card "5D300133.FIR" is 17.99MB rounded off to 18MB..you are good to go.
If anyone even reads the instructions anyway!!!! LOL!  :D
