Canon has them up on the refurb site right now for $3,999. Soooo tempting, but i think i'll keep waiting for my pre-ordered 1DX.

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II - Your thoughts
« on: April 30, 2012, 10:50:14 AM »
I will buy it because i don't have a zoom lens in that range, and have held off on getting one until the 24-70 II was announced. I have a 16-35, 50, 100, and 70-200, and also shoot with a 7D and a (sold now, being replaced by 1DX) 5D II. This lens sounds to be of equal or better IQ than my 70-200 2.8 IS II, so as much as i think the price is high, i think it will be worth it.

Lenses / Re: L lens vs Full Frame

I own a 7D, and just sold a 5DII. The 5DII blew the 7D away in IQ in my opinion. Going to a full frame body will make your 50 a bit wider than on your cropped body. It is tough to say, because both are a big step up in IQ (an L lens or a 5DII). Most will tell you to go with lenses, as they are a long term investment, but i think once you try a full frame body (the 5DII is an awesome camera and is priced right now that the 5DIII is out) you will love it. I'm going to go against the lens idea and recommend the 5DII to you. Get a good lens when you build up cash again and you will be amazed all over again, as an L lens on that body gives amazing IQ.

Lenses / Re: Lenses to shoot the Milky Way. Is a 17-40 enough?

A 14mm is a 14mm, if you are ok with a fixed focal length then it gets great reviews. But the 16-35 has alot of zoom range when you go from end to end while looking through the viewfinder, which may be a big benefactor in framing in your shot. I own a 16-35 (haven't had it long) and think it is a great lens, and is versatile being that it is both pretty sharp and can zoom. My personal opinion is go with the 16-35, 14 is very wide.

You didn't post what lens you will be using on the 5DII. Will you keep the 50 1.4 and have that as your only lens?

I own a 70-200 2.8 IS II and love it, but it is way above your price range you are looking at. Could you possibly try to get a 7D, 17-55, and a 70-200 F/4 IS all refurbished for your target price range? The F/4 version is no slouch, but won't let in as much light as the F/2.8 version ( but the F/4 version will be noticeably lighter in hand). That would be a good combo i think.

Nice write up, does the windows virtual machine require purchasing a windows os and running it on something like parallels? I am new to macs and am just trying to figure it's os out, so i haven't looked into integrating the windows on it (but i got a parallels program for free from b&h when i purchased the computer).

It sounds to me like reikan foCal is the way to go, but you need windows (mac os not yet released). I haven't used it yet, but will as soon as the mac version comes out. I've seen many good reviews on this product.

EOS Bodies / Re: 1d X field test

I saw a great youtube video that was shot in three parts by a canadian camera retailer. The first video compared the 5DIII to the D800 in studio shooting and low (as in ridiculously low) light, the second video was comparing them in low light action shooting (rodeo type event), and i didn't watch the third comparison because it was comparing video capability which i don't use. Anyway, it boiled down to both camereas having an advantage over the other in certain scenarios but no clear cut winner. At the end of both of the videos, the guys in it both agreed that a complete brand change would be foolish, as the real world resluts were too close to justify. Bottom line is, nikon shooters have a great camera in the D800, and canon shooters also have a great camera in the 5DIII.

I have a 1DX pre-ordered, but have really been leaning more towards a 5DIII lately. I have been questioning whether the IQ will seem like a downgrade from the 5DII i just sold, as i want a replacement for both my now sold 5DII and 7D. I think the reviews are getting better and better about the 5DIII now that it has been out for a little while, but i still feel there is alot of gray area about the 1DX and what exactly keeps pushing the release date back. Decisions, decisions....

Actually, the 200-400 1.4x is rumored to be over $11,000 which is ridiculous.

400+1.4 extender? Heck, i would love for my 7D to autofocus to F/8 so i could get a 600 F/4 and a 2X to give me 1920mm.
