O no, not a merge
I don't want a flip screen on my 7d successor
10 fps sounds good. What about noise reduction?

I would replace my 70-300L if the IQ of the new 100-400 is better than the 70-300L
What do you think, will it be better?

Unfortunately the 24-70II is still not available in the Netherlands. And.....the indicated prices 2 weeks ago was 2259 euro. Now several shops list the 24-70II for 2579 euro !!!!


The 70-200 II is listed for around 2179 euro. 400 euro difference. I guess better to wait for a good price of the 24-70II

Hello Kliphten,

I had a similar question. Read some of replies here:

I use a Transcend 16 GB 600x voor more than 1 year almost every weekend with my 7D shooting soccer. Around 500 photo's. Works great, never had a problem.
 
I have to admit that I will buy now two 16GB Lexar 1000x that will hopefully give extra boost to my 7D. I'll keep the Transcend for my upcoming 5D MK III
 
(I have sandisk Extreme 8GB 60MB as backup)

I think that Neuro is saying; the experience of range for 24-105 (cropcamera) on a FF camera, is like 15-44 on the crop camera. Coming from a crop camera and going to a FF

Hello darkcloud154,

Welcome to the forums.

If you want to shoot sports and wildlife today, get the 7D today. I am using it and I am very pleased by the performance. It just got a firmware update and the camera can hold out until 2013 (I believe longer as well)

The CF card is a stayer since the performance is very very good. Especially for sports. Look at the Lexar 1000x

So if you want to shoot today, go and get it

It's really a focal length decision. 

The equivalents on APS-C are 15-44mm and 44-125mm.

You already have two great (if slow) lenses for FF - I'd wait until you get the new body, and see where the f/2.8 would give the most benefit.  For me, it's 70-200, but I'll likely get the 24-70 II at some point.


Indeed there is no hurry to buy the camera and lens at the same time. Good advice to hold on a bit and first use the FF camera with my existing lenses. Giving me more clue. Patience is good. Exitement is high

I am going FF in October with 5D MKIII
I would like to add the 24-70 f/2.8 MK II. I like the aperture f/2.8 & zoom flexibility in one lens for indoor photography.
However, maybe the 70-200 f/2.8 MK II may be a better option. I don’t have experience on the different ranges (from 24 to 200) on a FF, just the crop (7d) So, I don’t know what I will notice or miss.
I couldn’t check all my files but I would say 1/3 of my photos are between 24-70, 1/3 between 70-200 and 1/3 between 200  to 300mm.
I currently own a 24-105mm for walk around. I really like this zoom for outdoor photography because it is giving me a good range which is important to me.
I currently own a 70-300mm L for sports mainly (with my 7D) but as walk around lens as well (small , not too heavy)
What would you do? 24-70 MK II or 70-200 MK II?


Ps (I will also add the 135mm f/2 to my primes)
Since you use these focal distances equally, I would get the 70-200 II first. Its price has settled more, as has the manufacturing process, so there appears to be less variation between lenses. Later you can pick up the 24-70 II when it has experienced the same.


That's a very good reminder. You're probably right that the first shipments may have varations. The lens is very tempting but your reminder is keeping my both feet on the ground.

4th pool box : will be discontinued

i believe the current 5D2 users will keep their camera or upgrade to 5D3

+1
New FF users with small budget will go for 6D. And who knows, it may be a FF entry winner....

I am very pleased with the 70-300 L. Though I use it mainly for sports (a "poor man" lens for sports) The frontbarrel of the lens is smaller than the rest of the lens and it extends about 7cm (being 7cm wide/diameter) - filter size 67mm
Depends on the fence but you should be able to move it through the fence.

I use the 24-105L as well. Great for general purpose and the 105 reach (plus IS) will be appreciated on a FF camera

This combo works great for me. I hope it will also when I will get my 5D MK III in October

Lenses / Re: What 3 lenses do you dream of and long to own?
« on: September 28, 2012, 12:10:01 PM »
It was:

24-70mm f/2.8 MK II (will own this lens in October - if it arrives ;-))
135mm f/2 (will own this lens in October)

It is:

14-24mm f/2.8
200-400mm f/4
600mm f/4 MK II

479
Did you consider for indoor the 135mm f/2. ? Sharp and good for indoorsports
If you need the range between 135 and 200, you may have to stick with the current lens though it is f/2.8
I don't own the 200 f/2.8. But review and comments are very positive. The lens sharpness is beaten by the 70-200 f/2.8 MK II and the 200 f/2

EOS Bodies / Re: Best FF option
« on: September 24, 2012, 07:21:55 AM »
...............?  If you believe Roger Cicala, only Canon lenses made in the last two years are designed to take advantage of the new system.  You may be looking at over $5,500 for a Mark III and one of the new 24-70 II lenses to get true large aperture focus accuracy.

But as others have said, the equipment does not make the photo, you do.

Mike

But as others have said, the equipment does not make the photo, you do. True
 
But besides that, is there anyone using 5D MK IIIor 1DX and the 24-105 or 70-200 MK II that suffers from this while shooting?
