Lenses / Why no 400mm f/4L IS exists?
« on: January 05, 2014, 08:05:43 AM »
The most obvious reason would be that Canon doesn't make it  :P

but could this just be a marketing thing? Or maybe such a lens would sit close to the 300 f/2.8 II in price which if combined with a 1.4x TC makes an excellent 420mm f/4?

Thoughts ...

EOS Bodies / Re: 6D clearance sale

The Henry's camera chain in Canada is having a clearance sale and the 6D is listed......

Strangely enough, neither the 60D or the 7D are listed as clearance items...

Gentlemen, start the rumour-mongering :)

I saw 5D III is on sale for $2545 through BVI :o :o :o :o :o 5D 4 must be right around corner ;D

Yes, Yes ... G.A.S. worsens!  ;D ;D

Just one question about this lens guys ... mounting this lens on the body gives me the heebie-jeebies given that the rear lens element is right on the mount. Do you find this to give you problems in the field?

But unfortunately, I was disappointed with the 2.8 IS II. I thought it would be a "halfway point" between the 70-200 f/4L IS and the 200 f/2L IS, but unfortunately the reality was the 200 f/2L IS at f/4 has more smoother backgrounds than the 70-200 f/2.8 does at f/2.8!


Bokeh is not really the strongest point of the 70-200 2.8 II. It can get real nervous under some conditions.

I believe there always are some compromises in the design of zoom lenses. Yes even in excellent lenses such as the 70-200 II.

I expected more resistance from the lens mount on a magnesium body which eventually supports lenses that weigh several pounds. :o In practical use, a 6D with Samyang 14mm would be more appropriate to stand behind the goal. 8)

Guess you never played football. The player in question gave it quite a whack.

Also, a 6D wouldn't make any sense ... you need the fps that the 1D bodies offer to shoot a fast game like football.
