EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 7D Mark II Coming in March? [CR1]
« on: February 22, 2014, 01:01:51 PM »
I don't know how many people out there are waiting for this Camera. It's a very very long wait now. It is still really surprising still not to have a CR3 news on this.

I've really wanted a 7D2 to be released by canon ... Tired of waiting I got a 5d3 in October 2012. Now I'm not sure what the 7d2 will offer which will make me get one after having been spoilt by the 5d3.

I also got the 5D MKIII in October 2012. I wasn't thinking of getting rid of my 7D before the release of a 7D MKII but I did. Now I am not waiting for 7D MKII because it will have less IQ than my 5D MKIII. I am looking for buying a 6D that equals the IQ of my 5D MK III and being an excellent travel/street/landscape/portrait backup camera.

Interesting. I wonder if Sigma would redo their 85mm f/1.4 into an Art version. And, would be curious what will be the size of the 85mm f/1.4 Art

Did you do some post-processing? If yes, what?

Cog, ...glad to hear you pay well, hopefully they will tell their friends and you'll get more subjects.

I guess they do tell.  ;D Each time I see more and more cardinals in the bush. But maybe it's just spring coming. They started to to chase each other and fight. But they can be nice and charming as well:

charming and modelling as well....
Wonderful capture!

It may be sacrilege to say this on CR, but I think I'd take the Lamborghini Aventador - but only because I don't need 20 of everything :)

Also, did you see these posts / photos on CR from London - I'm sure Sochi looks like this, too:

What is the story about all of them wearing this vest? I mean just for the CF-cards or? ???

Edit: I see that it will make them recognizable as photographers like here but else...

1D Mk IV with 70-300L & 1.4x TC
Magnificent sir! ... didn't know that the 70-300 L takes the 1.4x TC ... is that a  Kenko TC or Canon?

Must be the Kenko. The 70-300L does not support the Canon ext.


I very appreciate that you took the time to write this article. It is very helpful. Thank you!

With the same IQ as the 70-300L and IS, I would buy it, even if it is bigger and has more weight than the 70-300L
Love to have this zoom reach on FF (hope it is EF)

Not exactly "flying" ... but at least it's a bird!

Wonderful subject!

Can someone please direct me to Dustin Abbott's thread about the Tamron 24-70/2.8 VC ? (Looking, but no success.) Thanks.

Here it is:

I am so much on the fence between the Canon 24-70/2.8L II and the Tamron 24-70/2.8 VC. Would love to hear why you chose one over the other and if you are still happy with your decision. I am very aware of the physical differences between the two and the various test reports out there, but I am more interested in "how they feel and taste", if you know what I mean ... Comments?

Did you check out the review thread about the Tamron that was done by Dustin?

I bought the Tamron after I used / compared it with the Canon 24-70 f/2.8 II. The last one was a tad better in the corners and a tad faster AF but not significant for me to justify an additional 1000 euro. If money is no option and you need the best of best, then you may go for the Canon. I am very satisfied with the Tamron (which is also better than the Canon 24-70 f/2.8). And, I like the stabilization while using it in low light situations
