Sorry to hear what happened to your 24-70 and 1DX, and especially how Canon servicecenter dealt with it.
Thank you for sharing your experience here. Although I don't have to deal with the service center in Canada, you have given some good tips here that are valid for everybody.
I have spent a lot of money on my gear as well and I am not able to easily replace it. I would be stressed if there is an issue and understand your frustration. I once had an issue with my tamron 24-70vc. I had to sent it in. I was really stressed about how I would get it back. But they treated the lens very well and fixed the problem. Still, I am not looking forward to sent in any of my gear because of 'horror'stories (and I know, you mostly read the horror stories and seldom the good stories).
I hope that somehow they will treat you well and make your gear in order.
I would love to hear how they followed up your complaint and what solution they will offer you.
Good luck!

Lonely Diver by juzzlin, on Flickr

I met him at a small forest lake in Finland. Canon 70D + EF 300 mm f/4L IS USM + EF 1.4x II.


Very nice!

is that they are not able to make a reliable, consistent, AF, on their lenses for Canon.

And yet I've been using my Siggy 120-300mm f/2.8 OS hard for nigh on three years, shooting birds, aircraft, fast bikes, moto-x. touring cars - all the stuff that stresses an AF system - and the AF has not missed a beat.

So that's some first-hand experience for you, right there: apparently they can "make a reliable, consistent, AF, on their lenses for Canon".

Same story - over a shorter period (but still over a year of hard use) - for my 70-200mm f/2.8 OS.

Siggy users aren't idiots, nor or they inherently easily pleased: we use the lenses because they're bloody good at everything they need to be good at.

It seems that people generalize on Sigma lenses. Sure, there are people that bought Sigma lenses with AF problems. That does not mean that everybody has problems. I use a 50Art and it is spot on. It is obvious that on Internet you read more complaints rather than praises. Not saying I ignore the problems that others have - not at all - , but statements should be more balanced.

.....................
Overall, I think that there is no real info about the 7DII on this site ... less than a month before announcement.


Might even be less than a few days before announcement  ::)
Wasn't that the case with the 5D MK III?

I think that the new Sigma 120-300 f/2.8 is producing some great IQ images. Look at the photos of Keith_Reeder

That's not the new ("Sport") version, Candyman - it's the previous incarnation.

The Siggy 70-200mm f/2.8 is as good, and I can see that being a likely candidate for a "Sport" upgrade; and there's already a strong suggestion - from Sigma - that the 300mm f/2.8 prime will be given OS (and presumably "Sport"ed) in the forseeable future.
True. You mentioned that.
But still, I find the quality of the pictures very good - although it is the previous version.
Dilbert mentioned Wildlife in particular. I have to say I can't judge on other subjects  but very much like what you do with the wildlife. This lens appeals to me.

But then there's a 24-70, 120-300, 120-400 and three 70-300s. None of which are particularly good (especially the 70-300s.) In that space, Canon has a 100-400 that is well north of $2000, a 70-300 consumer grade lens that isn't worth owning (even Tamron's is better) and a 70-300L somewhere between 1200 and 1500 (depending on rebates.)

First things first:  Make sure the AF works for all (at least most!) AF points on newer Canon bodies!  If they can crack that, the world's their oyster.


I am sure they are working on that and fix this in firmware. This is one of the reasons they released the dock.

There is a lot of discussion about desired features - needed or not.
I assume that the marketing department of Canon is constantly checking the market for desired features of their customer base, feature development of competitors .....and so on.
That should mean that whatever features the 7D MKII will have at launch, it is based on the result of the market research and represent the desired features of the majority and must be able to compete. Not?
So if features are missing that some of you desire, maybe it represents features that are wished by the minority...not?
So that makes me curious what features really will be implemented....

This place charges AUD$100 to submit a camera for inspection. They didn't charge me anything more for the repair.

They wanted to charge me between 200 and 300 euro  because the camera was out of warranty  :'(
