I may have found a bug.  When a batch of images are selected and you engage 'Quick View', the arrow keys stop working if you change the viewing size.  I had to double click the current image to full size and then double click again to return to viewing size to re-enable the arrow keys.  That never happened in v.3.

I have been a regular visitor but first time to post here  :)
I use a mix of supported / not supported cameras (7D, OK, but 60D, G16, S100 not OK).
i would like to use DPP 4 though. Any suggestion? Is it possible to use both on the same PC?
Thanks for any assistance!

It installs separately and does not overwrite v.3 so you have both versions operational.  At least that is how it worked on my computer.

Canon EF Zoom Lenses / Re: Canon 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L Mark II

I would be interested to know if you think the packaging would endure a trip to the other side.  (Aussie) I have mine ordered via a third party and wondered if it needed re-packing   cheers brian

The Canon packaging is surpurb, multiple layers of protection, it can withstand lots of dropping. This is the best packaging I've seen for something in this class.
 
 Adorama also surrounded it with air bags, so it was in pretty good shape.
 
I did take it out this morning into the cold frosty air and took a few shots to try to see if there was front or back focusing.  It looked pretty good, I'd guess that its front focusing a very tiny amount, not enough to fool with right now.
 
This is a photo from about 40 ft at 400mm, full frame, and then crop.  There was no wild life this morning, but my neighbor's dog was herding his horses.  There is some motion blurring, that dog was moving fast, and 1/500 was too slow.  The white horse in the background is almost 1/2 mile away.
 

 
 
 

 
 
The banner was 40 ft away and moving in the breeze, but 1/500 was plenty fast to freeze it.  The depth of field was shallow, so there are some oof areas where the flag is not flat.  Adjusting the focus a couple of steps back might prevent that.  I was surprised to see the individual threads.
 

 
 


Very impressive.  I'm sitting on pins and needles waiting for mine to arrive.  Hopefully tomorrow.

The European site asks for a camera serial number and would not accept mine from the 5DIII.  I'm guessing because it's registered in Canada.  Would not let me download without it.

Interesting!  Is that part of Canon's new gray market push?  It does not make sense, try downloading from Australia.  Chances are that its a bug in the site.

Canon Australia does not show that version available, but thanks for the tip.  Guess I'll wait until Canon USA or Canada list it.

 
I'm downloading it right now from Canon Europe with my registered camera serial number from the USA.
 
Make sure that you enter zeros and not O's in the serial number.

Still did not work, but using....  0123456789 did work.  :D

it works with serial 0123456789, at least for me ... good luck !

Thanks.  That worked for me as well.   :D

Wow!  The user interface is a lot different from the previous version.  Will take some getting to know.

Technical Support / Re: How to remove a filter that is bent.

How would you like to buy a used lens from that guy who removed the filter in the video?    ::)

While some wait for the price of a new camera or lens to drop a couple of hundred dollars, I'm out using and enjoying mine.  Well worth it.   ;D

Congrats.  It looks pretty good from here.  Seems to take the TC well.  Keep them coming.

Hoping mine arrives next week

You should know that Sigma has apparently stopped production on the 24-105 f/4 lens.  This may not bode well for the future availability and service......  http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=23874.0

You don't have the Canon 24-70 f/4L IS on your list but that's the one I would be taking a hard look at.  Very sharp lens and no compatibility issues with present or future Canon bodies.

For Canadian websites we might not even get any shipping until January... *goes to cry in a corner*
(this is for the 100-400 II)

I just got off the telephone with my dealer (one of Canon's largest in Canada) and here is what I got.....

They have been informed by their Canon Canada rep that the warehouse will be releasing shipments to the dealers after the 12th. That is the most up-to-date information at this time.

I'm hoping that means early next week in my hands.
