Hey someone's out to get me!  Seems I've been stuck at 819 posts for a long time - is there no hope of getting beyond a 1DMark 4 >:( :( ;)  What gives?

Jack

You have yet 178 posts to go to get to 1Dx. Next target is the 300mm f/2.8 II  ;D

Lenses / Re: How many years before we see a 50L II
« on: July 28, 2014, 01:44:11 AM »

.................
Look at the lenses that Canon has updated in the past ten years and the age of the predecessor:

24–70 L II: 10 years
16–35 L II: 6 years
70–200 L II: 9 years
70–300 (L as an alternative to non-L): 5 years
300mm IS II: 11 years
400mm IS II: 12 years
500mm IS II: 12 years
600mm IS I: 12 years
24mm IS: 24 years
35mm IS: 22 years


Only those last two replaced lenses that were more than a decade old, and both of those were IS upgrades to previously non-IS lenses.

I am not sure the 16-35 II has been updated .....Is the 16-35 f/4 IS really the update?....

Not quite as dangerous or ferocious as Edward's African big game animals.

Unless you're a cricket!

I havebeen seeing this doe in the same spot for 3 days now so I threw on my camo and stalked to the edge of the bean field where i saw her yesterday. It took almost 2 hours of crawling but i got to within 10 yards . I hope she makes it through another hunting season , she is real pretty to look at.

It is so beautiful to see them free. Great photo!
Damn those hunters  >:(

Actually this means that Amazon is phasing out Cannons for Nikes due to the better dynamic rage and pixels revealed with the 810D.

And I thought heptagon meant Amazon was starting to sell cold war relics in place of American Civil War relics. ;)

Those Nikes you posted have quite some range. And they're big and white, too. Nice!

I don't know if you've been following the news recently but anti-aircraft missiles don't go down very well right now, especially in the Netherlands  >:(

Lenses / Re: Canon 24-70 f/4L IS disappointing?
« on: July 27, 2014, 08:29:17 AM »
I too have both 70-200 f/4 L IS and 70-200 f/2.8L IS II for the mere reason that when I bought the first the second didn't exist yet!

However there are cases where I need the 2.8 and cases where I don't so I can do with a lighter lens.

So I keep them both!

Indeed...  I bought the 70-300L as a travel telezoom, after owning the 70-200/2.8L IS II for a while.


I bought the 70-300L first - as travelzoom (occasionally sports in good daylight) and only after that I bought th 70-200 f/2.8 IS II - what a great zoomlens with wonderful IQ. It came very handy when shooting indoor musicals with limited and changing lights.
I have a few lenses in the same focal length but all for different reasons and pusposes....ok I suffer - a bit - from GAS  ;D

« on: July 27, 2014, 07:03:08 AM »
So, Photokina in September, what do we expect to see ?

I'm not expecting all, just some...

Canon EOS 7D MkII with 24mpx and next gen 70D AF tech
Canon EOS 750D with a 18mpx sensor and trimmed down 70D AF tech
Canon EOS M3 with same sensor and AF as 750D

Canon EF 50mm f1.8 IS < hopefully f1.4
Canon EF 85mm f2.0 IS

Canon EF 100-400mm L

Canon EF-M 16-120mm

Sigma 24mm f1.4
Sigma 85mm f1.4

Zeiss Otus 85mm f1.4

New Fuji X with the 24mpx APS-C sensor - probably in the X-Pro 2 with fixed lens first ?

What else ?
Considering Canon already released a 35mm f/2 IS, it would be nice to see the 50mm /f2 IS and 85mm f/2 IS
Looking forward to the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art and the 24mm f/1.4 Art
But what about the 135mm f/1.8 OS of Sigma?  And will it be Art level? Or Canon with an updated 135mm f/2 IS?

It's a sure sign that the 7D will soon be replaced with a mirrorless APS-H 1D-style camera called the 3Dx.


That would be the best news for wickidwombat....

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Sigma 50 1.4 Art NOT bokehlicious?

The only reason for me watching his videos is entertainment. I take his reviews with a grain of salt.
I also think he is wrong about both bokeh and build quality. I love the results of the 50A

Very nice review. Thank you for the time you have spent on it.
I am really impressed of the detail the Zeis lens captures like in the crop of the dandelion. Still I will hold on to my 135L obviously AF is an important reason.
