Capitol Reef National Park scenic drive.Nice, really love the road leading your eye all the way back
Here are a few of my recent ones

24-70Yep, that's about as common a kit as you'll see for a wedding photog, simply for its ability to cover a huge focal range and handle low-light relatively well (especially now with the 5dIII). And then they'll have their preferred portrait lens (50, 85, etc) to when they have time to change a lens and pose a shot.
70-200 f2.8 IS II
Your welcome. My first practical experience with the issue was taking waterfall shots on a 50D at F22 with a polarizer to get a slow enough shutter speed to blur the water. I couldn't figure out why since I was using a tripod and shutter release they weren't sharp.Yeah, I've encountered the same thing, though I often find I am happy with f/16 or f/22 over an ND filter and the resulting vignetting
We don't know many details of the new FF camera yet, so actually it's too early to argue it should be 3D or 6D.Well, the original post actually does mention specs (though they could be entirely wrong
Interesting rumour. It's hard to believe that canon will come out with a 70d before a 7dmk2 as the 7d is older than the 60d...Thats the nature of consumer v pro level cameras. The Ti cameras get updated yearly. The xxD cameras get updated about every 2 years. Anything in the xD level usually takes more like 3 years.
I think you are underestimating folks just a bit when you say this. The group of pro and advanced amateur photographers who are able and willing to drop ~$4000 on a camera body are probably going to be bright enough to figure this out, don't you think? Sheesh.Yeah, it's like saying people are buying the 1DX because the X makes it seem more extreme!
As an astro-imager, I want more pixels. My telescope plus various optical components produces an image circle that pretty much covers an APS-C sensor. So I'll be perfectly happy in a couple of years when APS-C hits 40 MP, as it surely will.Based on pixel density, I wouldnt be so sure you'll see a 40MP APS-C camera. Heck, even the D800's sensor (made for high MP) only captures 15-16mp stills in APS-C mode.
Says who? Canon? If Canon says it's weather sealed, shouldn't that mean it's weather sealed without a filter? I'm not doubting you, just requesting a reference.Canon themselves in the user manual for the lenses that need it (it's mostly the wide-angles I believe)
...the 16-35 L II is fully weather sealed to protect against dust and moisture only when a filter (typically a UV Filter) is in place like all of the other current-at-this-time sealed non-super telephoto lenses). Even though the extending inside portion of the lens barrel is gasketed, This filter is necessary to fully seal the lens. The lens does not change in overall size, but the inner barrel extends to its maximum near 28mm from its minimum at 16mm. A filter completely encloses this movement - and does not rotate. Mouse over the pic below to see the limits of movement.It's the paragraph early on right above the picture of the front lens element
EDIT: Or the zeiss 18mm! It's not too big, and close to my ideal focal length, thoughts on these two lenses?Well, the weight there might be getting away from your "light" classification, but, if you're at the 18mm Zeiss, consider the 21mm as well (even heavier though). Every review I've read says its the best lens in that focal length range.
Some would argue that the flip out screen is not a gimmick and is actually practical in some applications.As someone who does video, I'd agree with you. I don't need it, as I could get every shot I now get with my 60D on my 50D, but it makes some things more convenient.
I'm interested if this has anything to do with mirror-less.The general consensus is that any Canon mirror-less won't be EF mount...since the point of mirror-less is to be smaller, and the EF mount makes the camera about twice as large as it'd need to be. More likely its just another light, portable lens like the 50mm f/1.8.
Depends on how long the interviews are. With a 16GB card you are pretty much at the same capacity as a miniDVCAM cassette anyway. A wee break every so often with these kind of interviews is probably welcome anyway.There's a physical file size limit of 4GB for video, which amounts to about 12 minutes in normal 1080 recording. A break here and there is nice...every 10 minutes though? And what happens if the person goes on a long tangent and you're running low on time?
Is it just me or do others also think a touchscreen on a camera is lame? Why would you want to muck up your LCD with smudges and fingerprints so it becomes a big messy glare?Most companies have done a pretty good job of solving this issue; don't see too many people freaking out that they can't see their iPad screen, and yet that is entirely a touch-screen interface.
It seems to me is just a "oooh cool, lets get this one Martha, it has a touch screen" gimmick?Sort of like a flip out screen was for the T3i. They basically didn't upgrade anything, but added a gimmick. Welcome to the Rebel line, where the T2i was the last really innovative upgrade. Reviews will tell, but it seems like the T4i is getting a few gimmicks (touch screen, video AF), with the AF being potentially the only real upgrade.
I would +1 for the Tokina wide, as it's a great UWA for APS-C - do be aware it won't transfer to full frame if you ever go that way in the future.Actually it will, you can use the Tokina at 16mm with no vignetting.
