With that lens lineup, a lack of action shots and the need to cope with challenging light, my vote is for the 6D

The question shouldn't be about the "1dx for books?", it should be "Where can I find a machine that flips through the pages at 12 pages pr second.Or 'how do I use iBooks?'
With the 70D's dual pixel AF and the push for video, why not update these two with STM AF?
If you'll forgive me for a bit of poetic license with the abbreviations, I'd prefer the lenses' AF motors to retain their Ultra Speed Movement instead of being made Slow To Move.
For all my non-L lenses, or should I say all lenses which won't accept the Canon TCs. Such as: 24-105/4, 70-300/DO, etc. Just for the so-called "emergencies" when you need some reach.It varies from lens to lens, so if you want people with hands on experience to answer, best to say which lenses
With the 70D's dual pixel AF and the push for video, why not update these two with STM AF? IS on the 10-22 would also help video shooters. And a bit of an optical refresh never goes amiss - as good as these two lenses are, they were both introduced when APS-C cameras had 8MP.Canon has just announced price cuts on the EF-S 17-55mm 2.8 and the EF-S 10-22 wide angle. Could be a sign, or it could be coincidence. Certainly both lenses could use an update/upgrade.Both are <10 years old, and really, an update/upgrade would mean they'd cost as much as their L equivalents, maybe even more. Unless Canon is churning out an EF-S 10-22 f/2.8, no point in updating the current model, which is a solid lens.
While I am waiting for the 1Dx shipment to arrive I was just pondering if I would find uses to keep the 5D3 or if it was likely to not see the light of day again if I should sell it while there was still a little bit of market left in the resale value.Do you ever see yourself wanting to use two bodies to save swapping lenses so much? If so, the 5D3 is more than a perfectly capable 2nd camera!
Does canon read cr?Canon has somewhere in the region of 200,000 employees. Some of them will read CR (I've spoken to Canon sales reps who do), but as to whether the people who have any say about product direction read it, your guess is as good as mine.
So let's start dreaming...Yeah, and it could easily be the same size/weight as a nifty fifty. While they're creating such a technically simple lens, what about making the TC 4x which magically retains the f4 aperture?
A 100-400 F4 constant, with build-in 1.4 converter (which keep the f4).. for less than 2500 $.
could go well with a 7d markII
What set of primes would you recommend for someone shooting large format square film?
Personally, I went with the 35L, 85L II, and 135L (the classic 'holy trinity' of fast primes).
I beg your pardon OP but could I add a question to everyone here (in reference to Mr. Neuro's statement, may be he will also jump to share his understanding/opinion here).
Why does not this "holy trinity" include the 50L? Alright, 85 is 50mm more than 35 and 135 is 50mm more than 85. So they are equally spaced. That may be one logic (not a very strong one though). But is there any other reason to exclude 50L? We could have an "unholy foursome" (ok that did not come out right)....
It is true that 35>85>135 has 50mm in between. But it may be a better "spacing" to look at the field of view ratios. 135mm film is 24*36mm; so a 2:3 aspect ratio. The ideal spacing would be to have your focal lengths a factor 1,5 apart. That way the vertical FoV is the same as the horizontal FoV of the next lens in your series. An ideal series would look like (starting at 24):
24>36>54>81>122>182>273 with a bit of rounding:
Technically speaking, only lenses with an EF-S mount are EF-S lenses. Which means all third party lens with an image circle only designed to cover an APS-C sensor are in fact EF lens.
Third party "digital" lenses are not the same thing as EF-S lenses, if you want to butcher the safety stops then some EF-S lenses can be used to take
crapheavily vignetted images on a ff camera with the risk of severe damage to that camera, hardly seems worth the effort.
I do remember back in the day people did experiment with the practicality of various EF-S lenses on EF mounts, mainly so they could use EF-S lenses on the 10D as that predated EF-S and was EF only.
The Tokina (Third-party "digital") 11-16mm f/2.8 lens is in fact designed for crop lenses, and is so marketed; yet its construction does allow it to be used, without vignetting, at 16mm, on FF cameras. I like it because I can use it on both my 6- and 7D bodies, with very satisfactory results. I tried this after learning about it on this and many other forums...
Just curious to ask if caught for cheating the customs, who will pay the penalty and if the items are seized/confiscated finally, who will be responsible for it ?
No Import Tax/Duty to Pay:
Any import tax/duty charged will
be billed directly to us.
Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you, unless an Import Handling Charge is included in the price of the goods.
The idea is to get a solid camera, with basic but ESSENTIAL still (NOT MOVIE) photograph taking capabilities without breaking the bank.I can't imagine any manufacturer who has cracked putting a video mode into their stills cameras leaving this feature out in this day and age. Even if its not designed from the ground up for video (which the dual pixel AF in the 70D arguably is), throwing in basic video features with current sensor readout, processing and storage speeds is now almost no more than a firmware feature copied over from a previous model.
