I agree you won't get the advice you are looking for here. Too many posters (myself included) suffer from GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome).

BTW, I'm surprised you haven't snagged the 24-70 II  :P

Canon General / Re: So what have we bought this Black... Er, Weekend?

Nothing ... gotta work on my savings for the 300mm f/2.8L II.

BTW, I live in India and there is no such thing as a Black Friday sale in this country. Canon sets the pricing policy for its products with an iron hand and prices almost never come down, not even temporarily.

Lenses / Re: Next purchase 300mm f/2.8 L II - should I sell the 100-400?

Thanks for the replies.

So basically its neither here nor there ...  :-\  I guess I'll wait and get the 300mm first.

I don't want to end up with seller's remorse. Used 100-400 pop up for resale in India infrequently and if I sell it now and need it again, I'll probably have to get a new one  :(

Why don't you try it and let us know?  ;)

The settings registered under the custom modes do not change the global settings for the 5d3. I guess it should be the same for the 7d as well.

What is BVI?

To get me upgrade to 5D Mark IV, Canon needs to have these:

1. One full stop better in high ISO
2. 8-10 fps (even when the battery at 3/4 or half left)
3. Tries not to sell @ $4000 from beginning, then, drops to $2500 few months later

That last point was completely avoidable, If you bought from BVI. :)

I initially thought why the heck "British Virgin Islands"  ??? but then it struck me ... BigValueInc  ;)

It has been around for some time now. If I remember correctly, Mt Spokane mentioned it first (here on CR) a few months back.

Cheers ... J.R.

At this point, I'm completely satisfied with the MK3. What I'd like is some new lenses.

+1 ... Same here.

Two new FF in 2014 ... Availability in 2015? so basically only announcements for two FF in 2014  :(

I guess we'll have the "Canon is doomed" trolls having a field day

Eos M Fullframe ?  ;)

If it does materialize, I guess AvTvM will be happy ... but then, maybe not because it will be made by Canon :P

Lenses / Next purchase 300mm f/2.8 L II - should I sell the 100-400?
« on: November 28, 2013, 08:02:10 AM »
I'm planning to get the 300mm f/2.8 L II next and have saved up for the most part. I'm confused whether I would need the 100-400 after I do get the 300. That said, should I sell the 100-400, I might just be able to give myself an early Christmas present or else I have to wait a few months.

All you guys who have used the 300, have you needed the 100-400 after getting the 300 f/2.8 L II? If so, why?
