Form what i have read in other posts, they may have to make a design change with the lever to engage the teleconverter. I heard it may need a lock to avoid switching it on accident. Don't quote me on it, but it is a possibility.

Isn't there another web site that is "Birds as Art".  I'd guess this is a play on that, maybe trying to capture all the miss typed google searches.  :-*

Do birds fart?

Heck yes, they could clear a room  ;D

1dX 24mm f1.4 L II@ f4. Light Quadra in a 70cm Deep Octa.

That photo looks very nice, clean, and sharp. Well done.

Yep, first thing i thought was some type of armor for the body, not a new camera. He used a few different bodies and brands for the shoot.

Lenses / Re: With my 5D MK III is an f/2.8 lens really needed???

2.8 also gives a much nicer background blur, and can be shot at 2.8 without IQ loss. I wouldn't trade my 70-200 2.8 is II for anything......well, except for a 600 f4 is II

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Has anyone ordered from DigitalRev?

I live in the USA and ordered hoya filters from them for a big savings. There were no issues with receiving the items, but one of the filters had a manufacturing defect. I had to return it to them because it is considered gray market goods and the us distributor wouldn't honor the warranty. The real issue i had from that point was that from the time i sent it back until the time i received the replacement was about 2 months. They paid me back for the return shipping however. Bottom line, the initial shipment went well (if the filter wasn't defective), but you will not have a US warranty assuming that's where you live. I am not bashing them, but i may think twice about ordering anymore goods from them.

f2.0 200mm

Is it just me or do gary's shots of these animals on the previous pages just don't look "THAT" awesome. They seem grainy, a bit blurry here and there and the bokeh is just not beautiful. Compared to other shots posted here, these look more like rebel than 1dx. No offense, but I really want to know what's wrong cause that is not what you await from a $13000 setup (1dx+200mm 2.0)

Your first post ever (at least under this alias) and you put down a guy? Go find something better to do with your time.

.....or wait for the big mp body, if they will let you wait for it to be announced and launched. It might be around $9,000, and will likely be a landscape/studio shooters dream machine.

I'd like to at least hear a direct statement from canon about development, that way we would have an idea as to whether it will be a $3,000ish D800 competitor or a $8,000+ 1 series monster.


Pricewatch Deals / Re: Big Canon EOS 5D Mark II Price Drop Coming

A new 5D II for $1,699 is a steal, and the 5D III should be down to $3,000 most everywhere in the next couple of months. If you search daily, (or check back here and at the digital picture) they notify you of price drops. Numerous times the 5D III has sold for $3,000, and that fire sale adorama had on their ebay store saw them go for $2,749 (almost made me buy).

I was tempted to pre-order the 600 f/4 IS II during double points, that's a big gift card there...

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Canon 5D Mk ii for $1899.00 on Amazon!!

Supposed to drop to $1,699 everywhere until they are sold out. I believe they have or shortly will be discontinuing this camera.

Wow, good thing i sold mine back in april. Current owners will see their resale plummet. Great camera, just didn't love the AF system. That's $60 less than at the canon refurb store.
