2014 is a good year to release the 14-24.  8)
All the numbers of 2014 are in the 14-24  ;)

Economic recovery around the globe will further recover and we should expect a very exciting 2nd half of 2014 for new gear.</p>


Wouldn't bank on economic recovery 'cos the factors causing it aren't going away  :(

Lenses / Re: What does Blue Dot on a box means?

I would urge the seller to explain it. If you don't have a good feeling with the answer, return it.

where they put a yellow sticker on it and sell  it on as new  ;D

Always wondered what actually happens to lenses that are returned 'I got x copies before I got a good one' type of thing. Unless it's actually broken what happens I guess is stock just keeps getting rotated round buyers until a happy match if found?
Exactly.
But if you are not satisfied, don't keep it.

When a person pays 2K$+ for a lens its does become a concern if the lens is 100% brand new not a returned / repaired and labeled as new one. At some places online it was said the blue dot is put to mark the new stock compared to the old one based on the serial numbers. But as said there is not clear cut answer to this question so far.
Very much understand your concern. You buy and pay for something new, you should get it new!


Sometimes I see dot stickers because a lens was part of a kit package. They separated them and sell them apart. But of course the 70-200 does not apply to that category. I would urge the seller to explain it. If you don't have a good feeling with the answer, return it.

I would not be able to manage with that bag flying KLM. Allowing only 12kg. The lowpro is already almost 6 kg. So I won't be able to take the gear I want to take.  :(
Would be great if they would make the same roller but only max. 2 kg (empty)

well, this got mostly settled...

bag wise, going lowepro pro roller x300.

lenses -

just sprung for the used 100 macro 2.8 (the non L).. read so many reviews that said don't even try to use it handheld, but, hell, lets see how it goes...I can give it a good test as a second shooter this weekend.

As for the 24 1.4...renting one for 8 days...from the 17th-25th.  8 days, 1 wedding, and a vermont trip...that should tell me what i need to know about that lens.


Great selection on x300 Chuck Alaimo ;)

I'm extremly happy with "Lowepro Pro Roller x200 Case". As you can see my signature, it fits all my current gear and much more... I travel quite often, therefore, I picked x200 as a carry on bag. I put all my electronic devices in this bag when I travel - phones, laptop, cameras + lenses etc... and carry with me on the plane.

I love the Lock and Go System . Zippers are huge. The bag is really solid and looks great.

Dylan,
You never have a problem with the airlines? The bag itself - empty - weight 13.1 lbs (5.94kg). And the exterior dimension being 24,2" (61,5cm)

@stephan00 & @ Jim Saunders


Thank you for posting images. I like to see images from field use.
I am in process of saving for 300 f/2.8 MK II and plan to use it also with the 2x extender. I am curious about the IQ result. It seems to be good.

Canon General / Re: I hate photographing my family for posed photos...

Two suggestions:

1. You're never a prophet in your own country. Consider hiring a professional portrait photographer -- and get in the picture yourself.

2. Failing number 1, try a technique I've found successful, especially in dealing with eye issues. Get everyone placed as you want them and tell them to close their eyes and take a deep breath. Tell them to keep their eyes closed and count out loud from 10 down to one -- and on one open their eyes. (You don't do the count, they do as it keeps their minds occupied so their bodies can relax.) On the count of two, you open up with the fasted fps you've got.

Whatever works! Good luck.
Good advice. +1 on the fps

Lenses / Re: 70-200 Halo issue?
« on: September 13, 2013, 08:44:38 AM »
I bought mine last year in october. I do not see this halo effect.
I would say that this person got a defective lens. Recommendation is to bring it back and exchange it.

..only that he has done that 3(!) times already...

Don't know what to say.
I used my lens indoor in a theatershow some weeks ago. I looked over the photos again. There is no such flare as he showed in his photos. My number 89xxxx1957
