Interesting, and thanks for sharing that. At least one of the problems with the RX1 has been solved. Charging in camera is just a ridiculous idea for those on full day assignments.

How do you expect the 7DII / 70D will be received initially:why are there no positive options? All those you have put up are negative.
Velbon makes some nice affordable tripods and monopods. And I agree fully with RickSpringfield that you should try them in a shop, see what you like etc.
The Sony RX100 has some great reviews as has the RX1. Some people here also talk none stop about the new Fujis such as the X100s and X-Pro2. I really like the look of the RX1.
As for a new camera, unless you have loads of cash, why not keep hold of the 7D and enjoy that for a couple more years. I try to make any tech I buy last 5 years or so. You still get great pics from your 7D and there will always be something better so why not hold off on that purchase.
Sell my 7D? Never. It's fantastic for shooting horse shows because of the crop factor and the FPS. But with portraits and landscapes it can start to fall behind. Maybe someday, when I can afford to upgrade to 1D, but not any time soon. I managed to save up $5,200 so that's what we're working with here.
Long time reader, first post. I bought the 6D + 24-105 kit from B&H 3 weeks ago, which is within the 30 day return window. Think they would honor this new price if I contacted them? Anybody had any luck in a similar experience?
If Canon were to release a new 400 f/5.6L with all the latest features (v. 4 IS, weathersealing, modern build quality and materials, better MFD, etc) what do you think the cost would be? I think it would have to remain below the price of a 70-200 IS II, but I could definitely see it coming close to $1800 or so given Canon's recent price structure.
This time of the year in Canada, its going to be a bit chilly as well. North Bay will be -25 C tonight. I expect CR guys problem is finding clothiing thats not too heavy.
I'm going to be doing a similar trip later this year, but I think I'll take my Fuji's
Stay safe and post pics and I expect a nice right up...
Tip to CR guys, if you can make your way to Preah Vihear, a temple a few hours north of Siem Reap it's very beautiful there. Southwest Cambodia around Kep is also very beautiful. Anywhere in the highland region in Vietnam is extraordinary, Da Lat as the most obvious, but remote areas in Dak Lak province is simply stunning. Even further north in Kon Tum. Qui Nhon on the coast of Vietnam. Clearly Hoi An of course. Mekong Delta in Vietnam is unique. Hue city in Vietnam will provide fantastic photo opportunities although the weather won't be the best at this time of year. Have fun there!
I've traveled to hanoi and i think it's more beautiful than Ho chi minh city. Anyhow becareful going on Ha long Junk cruise "Boat Capsizes in Vietnam’s Ha Long Bay, Killing Foreign Travelers and Tour Guide
