Mine are not exactly the same colour either. The extender is a little greyer. I think they have both always been like that though.

RE: "Big Game" photo. It's always funny to see a 70-200 f/2.8 look so small and the 70-200 f/4s look tiny
Was actually thinking of a rain drop(s) running down the surface. If light can get in so can water, and the lens release button looks like the sort of place water could run into and divert into the camera.
Hi Expatinasia, have a look at this video, at around the 3.45 mark.
I haven'y tried that with my own a7r, but I did have mine on a Jet Ski in Australia in December videoing my son on those Water Plume thingys, covered the a7r in a reasonable amount of salt water, washed it off later with a soaked towel of fresh water, still working, impressed me at least.
I've tried the light leak thing on mine, friend of mine also has the a7r we bought them same time same shop in Singapore, unable to get the light leak issue, but I can on my 5DMK III's, hasn't seemed to have caused much of an issue to date though.
My point/question was that if this happens:As I mentioned before, light rain will not get inside the camera even with the FE 35 f/2.8 lens mounted on it.The light leak occurs with the body cap in place, but is more severe with a 35 f/2.8 Sony lens mounted instead of the body cap. The leak is worst when the light is shined onto the lens-release button area. It is also bad when the light shines onto the lower left quadrant of the lens mount, and directly above the lens mount. Other areas either didn’t leak or showed only a thin line that was far less pronounced than these areas.
Then surely that means that rain/water/sweat etc could also get in through those spaces?
That would worry me more than the light issue, but I do not know, which is why I am asking.
"Water" getting inside: if you are referring to small water splashes I don't think there is anything to worry about.
"Sweat" getting inside: maybe if Kingkong is sweating
I'm using the price.com.hk Android app/website to search. My Chinese is (very) limited, but there seem to be several sellers offering it for HKD44,800. But they could be "grey imports" - but hey, I'm not in HK so I don't care too much.
When I was in HK in October, I found the 600EX-RT's at lower price than advertised in the app. The "Sim City" shopping mall in Mong Kok, Shan Tung Street had several well equipped shops. DCfever is even registered as an official dealer by Canon HK.
Shoot me a PM if you need more info.
My only problem with that group buy is that I'm not in the US to take advantage of it
That…and the fact that the deal has expired.
Well, I did see the group buy while it was active, so I won't complain that the deal has now expired
In HK you can get them for around $5800, which is not so bad.
Thanks, Helen. I am actually buying the extra CF card as I have noticed it does not increase the shipping cost, so added value for me. I am buying it through B&H with the Tascam DR-60D which I notice you do not currently stock as well.
Another thing for you to consider, is B&H has cheaper shipping rates - US$ 10.50 in the case of a 64GB 1066X Lexar CF Card. Strange as you both use UPS.
Cheers, and thanks for being visible on the forums, it will definitely make me think of Adorama for future purchases.
I don't remember the last time I paid for shipping on gear... well... when I buy used... but from bandh, adorama, and amazon... I never pay shipping.
I am actually in the process of buying a new 1066X CF card and decided to check Adorama out as I rarely go to their site, and they do not even have the one I want....
I'd be interested to know which one it is, so I can alert our Purchasing Manager. Thank you: Helen@adorama.com
The Lexar 32GB 1066X CF Card and 64GB 1066X CF Card. Adorama only seems to sell them in packs of two and I only want the one 64GB 1066X card. Thanks.

Thanks. I was going to ask how you found them as I had followed the path from the home page, but then I notice that neither of these two products have an image next to them for some reason which is why I may have overlooked them earlier. You may want to get someone to put the image up, as when it is greyed out like that with "image coming soon" it looks like you do not have them - at least it did to me.
You are 100% correct - major fail by our admin!! I've already alerted our purchasing department to get onto this asap. Thank you - BTW Can I get your email address before you place / pay for your order?
What does this issue mean for the camera's weather sealing?Try to aim the flash light through clear plastic drinking bottle with the cap on
The light leak occurs with the body cap in place, but is more severe with a 35 f/2.8 Sony lens mounted instead of the body cap. The leak is worst when the light is shined onto the lens-release button area. It is also bad when the light shines onto the lower left quadrant of the lens mount, and directly above the lens mount.

As someone who’s currently building up a collection of kit, I’d like to thank Alan F for his brick wall shots. I can clearly see that the L glass plus a 2xTC offers better IQ than a third party, 1/3-of-the-price lens.
Let's make 1/7. The cheapest improvement on IQ level over the Tamron is the 300/2.8 L + 2xTC.
It's 1070$ vs 7250$. If you can afford/justify the latter, then you should get it; for everyone else the Tamron is a no brainer.
