I don't see the 5D3 or the 1Dx being updated any time soon.  That would be too short a life cycle for their pro cameras if the past teaches us anything.

I think we'll likely see the long anticipated 1Dxs, high MP camera that has been rumored for some time and possibly an updated 6D as the usual life cycle of prosumer cameras would be consistent with that.

Just sayin'  :D

Hmmmmm.... another day and still no refresh.

I've tried with Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox.  The site's front page has not changed all day.

This promo makes me think that their new licensing approach is not as successful as they had thought it would be.  I'll continue to use my 'perpetual license' version, thank you very much.

Also, the 580/600 can be used as a master and the 430 can only be used as a slave.

Be careful, Canadians.....

Import Charges (Estimated):  $123.15    ? ? ? ? ?

What import charges?  I've never had import charges on stuff I've bought from the U.S. before.

I always have to pay.  How are you shipping?  Are the packages shipped with proper papers, or are you having items shipped in a deceptive manner?

Nope.  Never had anything shipped in a deceptive manner.  I've purchased from private individuals and had merchandise shipped via USPS as well as from B&H.  Also from places like Cabella's.  Have never paid import charges.

A thought just occurred to me.  Perhaps they are referring to HST (if they are licensed to collect it).  However, that should still be under $100.

I had another thought.....

You could also consider the Canon EF 100 f/2 which is just as sharp as the 85 but shows significantly less fringing.  It's a lens many tend to overlook.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Off Brand: Nikon Announces the Df
« on: November 06, 2013, 03:20:00 PM »
Um, can't really compare Df to D610, Df doesn't have D610 guts, it's got D4 guts at less than half the price.

You seem to be one of those folks for whom "sensor" is synonymous with "camera."  Do you make camera purchase decisions based solely on DxOMark Sensor Scores?  FYI, there's more inside a camera than the sensor.  Let's look, shall we?

                                 D4                     Df                   D610           Like D4?     Like D610?
Sensor                   16 MP            16 MP             24 MP                   ✓
AF points           51 (15 cross)   39 (9 cross)    39 (9 cross)                                ✓
AF sensitivity         -2 EV               -1 EV             -1 EV                                           ✓
Metering sensor 91,000 pixel    2,016 pixel      2,016 pixel                               ✓
Max shutter          1/8000 s       1/4000 s         1/4000 s                                       ✓
X-sync                   1/250 s         1/200 s           1/200 s                                         ✓
Exposure Comp      ±5 EV             ±3 EV            ±3 EV                                       ✓

Look at that list, and explain how the 'guts' of the Df are more like the D4 than the D600/610...

Allow me to repeat my earlier statement, with a few modifications:  What Nikon has done here is analogous to taking a modern, powerful, fuel-efficient engine, (the D4 sensor), handicapping that engine with a three speed transmission (the D600/610 AF sensor, metering sensor, shutter assembly, etc.)...putting it into a Subaru Brat...and slapping on a Mercedes price sticker.

Nicely put.

Unfortunately, there are people in this world who don't want to be confused with facts when their mind is already made up.

Every time I buy a new lens, I say the same thing.  I've probably said it a hundred times.   ::)  Will likely say it again.
