How much slower? Is it possible to put a time or percentage against this?
I have to admit I was unaware of this issue. I want to get a 5D3 next year but I will absolutly be using it in low light flash situations, off camera lighting not an option. Is this a show stopper?

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

I like these though the first is my preference it feels more Dutch than UK for obvious reasons.
Was wondering though if you had any issues taking pictures in these areas?

+1 A simple elegant solution to a complex problem ;)

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 :)

+1 well said

ah ha so I got it spot on yesterday  :P

I bagsy the cred on that  ;D

Maybe they think the f4 brigade will go for two lenses instead of the one 24-105 like a poor mans version of the ideal pro zooms. Roll on the 14-24s

Any chance the IS version is actually an f4L lens?

That would be a M00t lens because of the 24-105L.

ah true true

Love red squrrels, hope it's ok to post this link, love this photogs reds

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  .

So it is subjective  ;D

Pricewatch Deals / Re: The 5D Mark II & 5D Mark III Get Cheaper
« on: October 25, 2012, 08:42:49 AM »
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.

Thanks interesting,

Worst UK Lowest Price:  £2299.99  23/09/2008
approx exchange rate in 2008 2$ - 1£: $4600

Wow some difference to the 5DII body only - $2700 you remember, not ever UK taxes can account for that!

Worst Lowest Price:  £2999.00  04/03/2012
@ current exchange rate: $4842

Current Lowest Price:  £2399.00  25/10/2012 
@ current exchange rate: $3872

Curently $3199 at B&H

Thats only $637 of a ($) difference which will be UK taxes and the current UK price is in line with the initial 5D2 UK price

Now there is a good chance I may have gotten my sums wrong somewhere so appologies if I have but it looks to me like someone leveled the playing field
