EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 7D on it's way out?

I think it remains very important for Canon to have an APS-C series with a good, quick body with weathersealing.

I totally agree with that fact ! Wildlife photography is a huge market for Canon and the 1.6x crop factor is essential ;)

In my opinion, if Canon produces 3 new bodies in 2012 (1DX, 5DX and 5D mark III), we won't see any 7D mark II this year  ;)

So right now i've my 40D, a 70-200 f/4 L IS, a speedlite flash 430 EX II, my Gitzo monopod and i've ordered the Loka backpack from  F-stop and Lenscoat gears.

here's a link for F-stop gear :

The 7d will come later this year with the 300f/4 L IS II ( i'm an optimistic guy :P )

If this rumor is true, hopefully it'll end all this crying posts ! And if that's true that's a smart move from Canon ;)

you know what, i don't really care about these bodies because i can't afford them for now and i might be wrong but we have already great bodies available ;) But a great lens, affordable and  weather sealed that i can use for wildlife photography that's what i'm waiting for !

Of course i'm talking about new versions of the 300 f/4 L IS (since 1997), 400 f/5.6 L (since 1993) and even 100-400 f/4-5.6 L IS (since 1998).

And i think (i should say i hope) one of them is coming this year 8)

I am certain 99% will not need 36mp images

How many of us do A2 or A1 print ?

In my opinion wiith 18 to 20mp you already have very high quality A3 printing... But once again i'm not taking photos in a studio.

I really hope Canon will not go into MP race

Me too, i don't need that kind of gear for wildlife photos but clean high ISO images, yes  ;)

I'm thinking about the 100mm macro f/2.8 L IS ; it could be a good answer in my opinion.

Take a look at this deep and detailed review :

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L II Announced
« on: February 07, 2012, 08:05:56 AM »
The version 2 is 145g lighter than the version 1, that's a huge drop off for this kind of lens ;) No IS could be in relation with the weight ? And imagine the price with an IS version :o

The price of the 24-70 is ridiculous. With an IS, it might be justified, but with out one, no way

Ouch... the European price is more than the 70-200 f/2.8 IS II

2300 € are you kidding ? It's really too much but it's the trend we have already seen with the big lenses and in my opinion that will be the same for actually relatively affordable lenses like the 300 f/4 L IS or the 400 f/5.6 L !

Too bad :-\

EOS Bodies / Eos 1Dx and 5D mark III / 5 Dx tonight

With the Super bowl coming tonight, one the biggest sport event in the world, do you think these bodies will be tested by accredited photgraphers or canon team crew ?

They already have the 400/4 DO to cover that spot, in a much smaller lens body with much lower weight, and is otherwise a superb lens outside of the limit on resolution and IQ

But many users who bought that lens have been disapointed considering its high price

If i'm not wrong, this is the 4th patent of the 300 f/4 since early 2011... So can we conclude the actual one will have a new version in 2012 or 2013 ?

A 400 f/4 L IS and weather sealed would be a dream and an instant favorite lens for numbers of wildlife photographers if the price is correct (i bet between 2500 and 3000$)...

If  one of the 300 f/4 L IS II weather sealed or the 400 f/4 L IS is due to be produced this year i'll be a buyer for sure !
