To the original OP, have you considered digitalrev? I know it's tempting me!

This does not make me happy. Looks like I won't be buying a new camera this year afterall.
guysguysguys, everyone relax!
If this rumor does turn out to be true, it's gotta be a new kit lens for the 6D, most likely in response to Nikon's 24-85 VR. This would make it very light, easy to handle on a lighter FF body, and quite cheap.
I've played with the 24-85 and while I don't think the IQ passes muster, the size and weight are simply superb. It's about the same as my 85/1.8G and handles very very well on a D600, whereas the existing 24-70/2.8 would feel like a front-heavy hog.
Canon is not trying to sway any of you to give up your 24-70/2.8's in favor of this lens, they're just recognizing that the 24-105 isn't the ideal lens for the next generation of entry-level FF bodies. Assuming the IQ doesn't suffer as much as on Nikon's version (and the L designation implies it won't), it'll make a great addition to the Canon lineup. Take it for what it is, not as a replacement for any existing lens, and all will be well, I promise
Any chance the IS version is actually an f4L lens?
That would be a M00t lens because of the 24-105L.
No it is not subjective: Correct white balance means that a white, gray, black or full gray scale surface is displayed without discoloration and have the same RGB values from the whitest down to black .
One should distinguish between the use of gray cards that are more suited for exposure and not white balance and a card where the white balance should be made towards whiter area with a value around R 220 G 220 B220, . The cards should also have such metamerism characteristics that a white balance can be made in different color temperatures.
Best results do we get from a card with for example four different surfaces from black to white so that we can adjust curves towards more points than one grey.
And if the WB results not fit the taste - that is a subjective opinion and we can adjust cooler,warmer etc .
just curious, anyone know how much the 5D2 was eight months after it’s release?
As far as I recall, the 5DII price at launch in 2008 was as follows:
5DII body only - $2700
5DII body and 24-105 lens - $3500
I cannot remember the price several months after launch. However, the price in early to Q3 2011 was as follows:
5DII body only ~ $2200
5DII body and 24-105 lens - $2800
Hope that helps.
Prices wend down today to $3200 at all major retailers. This means we will see a lot more $2900 and less deals at ebay stores real soon. Plus the holidays are coming real soon. If you can wait a bit i would. I'm not suggesting waiting another year. Just saying prices are about to get a lot more attractive. Hopefully
