Went to the Balboa Beach last weekend with 5d III + 40pancake. At the end, it took 4 bottles of drinking water to rinse off ocean water and sand.

I can imagine while so close to the water. And, the gear survived?
Great photos!

Yes, wonderful photos
I like the photos with the mirror.....foreground OOF and B&W and the mirror image in color. Great job.

It's been a while since anyone's posted to this thread, so here are a couple of recent shots:

Great series. I especially like the waterlilly, the three looking at you and the last photo - so cute!

lots more to come sounds a bit funny...
well a lot has been rumored here:
- new projectors
- new printers(at least one of them 'Pro')
- a couple of powershot announcements

Sorry to hear what happened to your 24-70 and 1DX, and especially how Canon servicecenter dealt with it.
Thank you for sharing your experience here. Although I don't have to deal with the service center in Canada, you have given some good tips here that are valid for everybody.
I have spent a lot of money on my gear as well and I am not able to easily replace it. I would be stressed if there is an issue and understand your frustration. I once had an issue with my tamron 24-70vc. I had to sent it in. I was really stressed about how I would get it back. But they treated the lens very well and fixed the problem. Still, I am not looking forward to sent in any of my gear because of 'horror'stories (and I know, you mostly read the horror stories and seldom the good stories).
I hope that somehow they will treat you well and make your gear in order.
I would love to hear how they followed up your complaint and what solution they will offer you.
Good luck!

I met him at a small forest lake in Finland. Canon 70D + EF 300 mm f/4L IS USM + EF 1.4x II.

Very nice!

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: What does Sigma do next?

is that they are not able to make a reliable, consistent, AF, on their lenses for Canon.

And yet I've been using my Siggy 120-300mm f/2.8 OS hard for nigh on three years, shooting birds, aircraft, fast bikes, moto-x. touring cars - all the stuff that stresses an AF system - and the AF has not missed a beat.

So that's some first-hand experience for you, right there: apparently they can "make a reliable, consistent, AF, on their lenses for Canon".

Same story - over a shorter period (but still over a year of hard use) - for my 70-200mm f/2.8 OS.

Siggy users aren't idiots, nor or they inherently easily pleased: we use the lenses because they're bloody good at everything they need to be good at.

It seems that people generalize on Sigma lenses. Sure, there are people that bought Sigma lenses with AF problems. That does not mean that everybody has problems. I use a 50Art and it is spot on. It is obvious that on Internet you read more complaints rather than praises. Not saying I ignore the problems that others have - not at all - , but statements should be more balanced.
