I'm anxiously waiting for a Sigma Art super wide i.e. 15mm 2.8 rectilinear.

In the past they would normally just put the prototype guts into an old body shell but if they don't fit then they need to go to plan b.

A wide zoom that compares in sharpness to the 24-70 and 70-200 version II lenses.

I'm a gold member and my turnaround times are many times faster than guaranteed.
And one time when I had a 1D Mark IIN go in for repair for a third time with the same issue they sent me a Mark III back.
Canon user for LIFE!

This download is clearly labeled as "preview." Which in my mind says it's a little further along than beta.
The full release is set for the end of the month. Can we stop the Canon bashing until it's officially released?

From a RAW. Not real crazy with the skin tones from RAW. JPG's were solid.

I'm having a hard time mustering up any excitement for a 16-35mm f4. I was hoping for the rumored 14-24mm.  :-[

Just give me a sharp, low distortion wide angle. That's all I ask for.

The 100 f2 is underrated? The last one I tested had so much CA in it I could barely make out the image....ok that's slightly exaggerated but it was a LOT!

Lenses / Re: Should I choose the 70-200 2.8 II?

The EF70-200 2.8L IS II and the EF24-70 2.8L II are the two FINEST zoom lenses EVER MADE. The literally have no equals or competition. They're worth their weight in gold. I can't recommend either of them any higher. I used to love shooting with my fast prime L lenses for their amazing IQ. I literally can't tell you the last time I used any of them.

I LOVE the optical ability of the 24-70 2.8L II but the build quality leaves a lot to be desired.
•The button on the lens hood is malfunctioning and requires that I tape the lens hood to the lens
•One of the rubber grip rings has become stretched and is barely holding on to the lens
•There's a stringy, velvet material that has worked it's way out of the lens barrel now

It's going in tomorrow

Do we know for sure the week doesn't begin on arrival of the item?

First thing I see is the cartoonish cloud on the invite. For some reason I seriously doubt this'll be EOS or high-end equipment related. Basing that on nothing more than a hunch. Am I reading too much into it? Apple's press invites usually have a tiny or subtle hint at what the announcement could be about. Has Canon ever used a "cloud" before? Could they be starting up a cloud based image storage service?
I'm rambling now....what say others....?

I fly about four times a month, many airlines have started to actually weigh hand luggage in the hope it is too heavy and you have to pay to check it. Which airline are you using?

Avoid, Southwest, Spirit, AirTran and AA from many destinations, plus any of the multitude of "budget" airlines, total ticket price to actually travel is often way above regular scheduled airlines.

I've never had any airline attempt to weigh my carry on gear and I travel with a LOT of gear. If it can fit in overhead bin you shouldn't have any problems. What you don't want to happen is you get stuck on a small regional sized plane that has limited overhead baggage space because then you'll have to gate check your bag and who knows what can happen to it. You're totally at the mercy of the baggage handlers then. Will they drop it, toss it, lose it....makes me nervous when I'm out of control of my camera bag.

Lenses / Zeiss vs Canon
« on: April 24, 2013, 07:52:04 PM »
Anybody have any side by side comparisons of Zeiss lenses against Canon?
I'm mostly looking for Zeiss 15mm 2.8 to anything wide made by Canon.
