Pricewatch Deals / Re: Canon 6D discontinued?
« on: October 25, 2014, 12:57:13 PM »
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B009C8T05C/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1414255451&sr=8-1&pi=SX200_QL40

Is this a mistake by Amazon UK?  Both body only and kit options are marked as discontinued. Will there be a surprise at the New York show?
2 to 2,5 years seems a very short lifecycle.
I guess it is a mistake  :-\

Saw this beautiful owl on my walk yesterday morning.

That's a great one Tony. I like the others too.

Also, any thoughts on SD cards? I'm eyeing up these Sandisk Extreme Plus cards. Not quite as fast as the Pro but they're a lot cheaper. Is the Sandisk Extreme Pro overkill? (Note - I have one 16Gb Extreme Pro I use with my EOS M - which probably is overkill!)

I use Lexar 32GB 600x (bought 2) and I am very happy with those.

I sold my 6D and all my canon gears 2 weeks ago... I'm in a phase where I am pissed at Canon (it happens in cycles). not sure if I'm gonna switch to Nikon (I tried the D750 with sigma Art 35mm and I was really impressed) or Fuji (considering XT-1 with 3 primes)... or maybe wait for the first quarter of 2015 to see if a new Canon system/mount comes out.
What I can tell is that if you get the 6D with the 35mm F2 IS you will have a great combo!


+1. Feels also very good balanced

I gotta say that Eagle shot is pretty darn awesome

Agree. Very promissing lens

Thanks Candyman. They are a difficult bird to photograph. While we have them in our area, in 3 years, it's only the 3rd time I've managed to hold the button down long enough to get an image :)


Well done! Thanks for sharing

Pardalote. I went to photograph a Kingfisher, which I'd heard in the area. Didn't find the Kingfisher, but this one popped up next to me for a few seconds, long enough to get 3-4 frames off :)
5D3 with 300mm f4.



Beautiful. Great timing

Here's a 600mm shot wide open that I took yesterday.

Gone Away... by Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott, on Flickr

The lens is great - I just don't do a lot of this style of photography (or even particularly enjoy it).


Very nice photo with nice colors. I like blue with the combination of brown
Just a question: Isn't there a small focus shift to the small branch behind the bird? Looks it focussed on there. Used Flickr to zoom.
