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?

Lenses / Re: 70-200mm F 2.8 IS 2 VS 70-200mm F4 IS

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.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: What a waste of 1-serie camera
« on: December 22, 2013, 10:58:30 AM »
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.

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Amazon Rocks

I would love amazon even more if it didn't collect sales tax.

+1...I would support local camera stores IF ONLY there is no sale tax. With my recent purchase, 400mm f2.8 IS II price tag + .0775% sale tax =   :'( :'( :'(

What happened to the 300 f/2.8 II?

Love everything about 300mm(from IQ, light weight, AF-speed) just little short for my shooting. Decided to go with my original plan, the 400mm. According to MTF chart, the 400mm is good as 300, with 1.4x TC is slightly better. I'm speaking on paper data of course.

Excellent! How do you intend to handle the weight (3.85 kg)?

Happy Shooting with the new lens!
