Will likely be $2,400 - $2,500 here in Canada.  I still want one.  I will definitely be on the pre-order list.   ;D

Second  look (who am I kidding), after several looks I noticed there are no focal length markings, which by reference to 70-200 and 70-300 layout should be visible wrapping over the top.  Excitement fading  :'(

It is probably racked all the way around to the short focal length setting and the last mark is top/center in that position and not visible from this particular viewing side.

If it produces images as good as the 70-300 L it will be a winner.

Nik Software (now owned by Google) has set the standard for customer service.  At least in my view they have.

I recently contacted them to ask if my original Nik modules (pre-Google days) would be compatible with my new computer's operating system and updated version of Photoshop.  They responded to my email within a couple of hours.

Their reply was that it would not be compatible, but that I should not worry..... they were supplying me with a complete suite upgrade (7 modules)..... NO CHARGE.  I was stunned to say the least.  The tech rep even went so far as to tell me that if I had any difficulty with the installation to email or call him and he would help me through it.

These guys now have me for life.

Thanks a lot everyone.  That is really a lot of great information and some great tips.  It will come in handy at build time.

Software & Accessories / Windows 7 install
« on: October 17, 2014, 02:14:12 PM »
Can anyone give me an idea how long it will take to do a 'clean' install of Windows 7 ???  It will be installed on a new machine with an Intel i7 4790 4GHz processor and 16GB of DDR3 RAM.

Also, are there any potential pitfalls to be on the lookout for ???

Thanks.

The newer version of DPP does not support my operating system.  I run Vista 64.  Updating my operating

So it's ok upgrading the camera even if you already have two very good ones - but not upgrading a an old OS (released in 2007), the only one unanimously regarded worse than Windows 8?

From a developer perspective, there are many new features which became available only from 7 onwards (i.e. better support for high DPI displays, color management). while Vista market share is only around 3%, making the effort to support it not so appealing.

If your software runs on Vista 64, it will run on 8 and 7 as well (you can downgrade your OS but with some OEM licenses). LR is still available as a standalone product outside CC. Scroll to the end of the page, and you'll find a link to buy LIghtroom 5 standalone. It won't run on Vista too, anyway.

Today the digital workflow is not the camera only - software plays its role as well. Complaining because we can't use the latest camera on outdated OS looks a bit unfair to me. I understand we all prefer to spend money on the toys we like most and not on something we may regard as "not so imporant", but sometimes we need to accept realilty.

I understand what you are saying.  If you look back a few comments, you'll see I have decided to build a new computer.  This thread has been very enlightening.  The new computer is at the top of my list now.  :)

We're going to build one.   :D  I have a friend who is a bit of a geek and has been through it.  He's offered to help spec out the components and get stuff together.  In the weeks ahead, I hope to have it all together.

Thanks for all the input.

Cool. It's easy to get caught up in the "upgrade" mode and spend more money...

Lots of info over on Seven Forums- check it out.

A fast processor and SSD can get to the Windows splash screen faster than you can get into BIOS if there are issues with your build (even if you enable the features that are there to slow things down enough to get to BIOS). That said:

(1) Consider a motherboard with a legacy PS/2 port

(2) There may be a specific USB port that gets power first, read the MOBO manual

The i7 processor and an SSD is at the top of the list, along with Windows 7.

What is the purpose of a PS/2 port?

If I was to sell my 70-200 f/2.8 IS II, I think I would have to give up photography.   ;D

Ya might wanna go for a little more than 16MB Ram.   ;D
