"This lens kicks butt, takes names, and basically posterizes the manufacturers who make the cameras this lens will fit on."

Ah! at last a lens review I can understand, no techno bollocks just straight to the point ;D ;D

EF 35 f/2 IS

Well that's a first, two images from Canon I really like!!  ;D

That's making me think 6D + 35mm could be a really good low light/street setup

Sorry about the acronym Rusty, normally I hate them ‘cos I don’t know what half of them mean myself  ;D

I have to admit when I wrote that I was kind of angry/frustrated and was thinking it might just flush someone out into saying what actually goes on. One reflection that’s silly and never going to happen.

The reason for the frustration is simply that I have for some time been planning on getting a 5D3 next April/May time it simply ticks all the boxes for me and one of the first and important uses will be a wedding evening reception. Exactly the sort of event I thought this camera was built to excel at. Ah well at least time is still on my side, there may be a fix and I can just use what I’ve got now anyway if needs be.

Louis - why not start a thread on the new Canon forum, you may get a bigger ball rolling there? I’m not a pro so don’t have any weigh or real reason to complain that’s business related.

I hope I’m right in thinking that issues big enough to be affecting business raised by pros are addressed by Canon as a priority!

There is no way low light AF assist focus accuracy wouldn’t be part of a new camera’s field UAT

I’d love to see the paperwork from the in field testers of this camera.

were/did they
a) completely incompetent
b) yes men
c) report accurately basic issues and were ignored

I wonder if some of them frequent this web site but can’t say anything  :-X

I have used HDEW and while they may import from HK or wherever you have no risk of import duty ( as they are UK based ) and they bolt on a three year warranty.  It may not be a full Canon warranty but I have had cause to rely on it with an earlier purchase and the camera was repaired quickly, no quibbles and well by what looks to be a reputable repair shop in Glasgow.  So only one experience but one satisfied customer here ( £2000 for a 5D III not too bad )

Hi Chasn

I'd be interested to know the name of that repair shop?
If you don't want to broadcast it please PM me

Anyone checked them for light leak yet?

Good to see Nikon going on rampage right now that better for us as a costumers, but anyway this camera will cost 1,150$ it is 350$ more than the Canon 650D and even more expensive than the 60D.

But since Nikon announce there cam thats mean Canon will follow it in a short time i hope they release 70D or 7D MK II

cheers ;D


Interesting from UK pricing
£720 - $1150.7  less 20% UK tax  £576 - $921

and that would be 'early adopter' price

Is the UK getting this camera cheaper?

What happens to all these recently purchased new lenses (from B&H, Adorama, etc) that are returned or exchanged because the original buyer thought it wasn't good enough? Are they resold as new or refurbished or used? Are they checked out by the original seller? Just wondering :)

I'd like to this too, I suspect they are just boxed up and sold on to the first person to come along with lower standards or don't know any better

404
Thanks for the info Ray
2 - 5 seconds!!!! I can manual focus quicker than that. Maybe the tape from the light leak fix is interfering with AF assist  :o :o
For me that's getting on for not fit for purpose. I look forward to seeing if/how this is addressed

Digital rev now cover all import tax for UK buyers, which is why the products UK pound are more expensive than they were.

Add it to your basket. On the right hand under the price it says:

No Import Tax/Duty to Pay:
Any import tax/duty charged will
be billed directly us.

Sorted. I intend to buy my 5D MKIII there when I have enough, there are no negative reviews from UK buyers in over a year. Why pay £500 more for it in the UK and postage is free. I got my original 40D there some 5 years ago had no issue with customs. They offer a full year warranty with up to 5 year extra, this is based out of Hong Kong but send it back to the Surry office and all is sorted for you. Just as good as any other with a great reduction of cost.


That's the thing about DigitalRev, I've hear lots of good experiences like yourself I've also heard the opposite that poeple have been hit with customs and that they are a bit naughty on the packaging. But they must do a lot of business into the UK and I'd have thought customs would be wise to them. Your quite correct about the statement on their web site. I hope UK prices do come down more but if not I guess I may be giving them a visit.
