Do you require autofocus?  If not, older Minolta supertele lenses (500mm and 600mm) come up on eBay, etc., from time to time, and are not too expensive (relatively, that is).
Yes, AF is required. Using 60D, 5D2 (and maybe in some month the 7D2
Seen the Sigma 800mm. Is this lens  ok?

Third Party Manufacturers / looking for an >400mm third party lens

My Canon 300mm 2.8 II  is heavily broken, a NACA 7. I used it with the 1.4 & 2.0 converter
Now I am looking for an new lens >400mm.

As I looked in the www, the Canon lenses are extraordinary expensive. Does anybody own an >400mm third party (Sigma, Tamron, Tokina,...) lens that is worth buying? I do not want to spend another 8000 € for this lens....

One question: New sensor technology by using "white" dots (not only red green blue) to get really white dots. Does thaht Canon use too in the newer Cams?

Disappointed.

Yes, it's more a 70d (my guess $1400+, iif it even exists) equivalent ... but disappointing? For $1200?! Starting Price! This is so economical I first thought it would be a typo - probably that's why Canon will expand the ff route like their CEO recently said, more money to be made in the high-end enthusiast's segment. The only positive news for Canon: The d7100 will be sold out for months, so Canon will have some time to counter.

+1

i GUESS it is pretty hard for nikon to sold out d7100 as soon as they want since nikon users already hear about the rumors of nikon d400

This was discussed on an Nikon blog too: The D400 will an high end crop model. priced between the D600 and 800. Very fast AF, many cross sensors, maybe continuous raw shooting @5 fps. UHS-I fast cards....

The 7100 seems to have an very good IQ with low noise up to Iso 6400.
 Better superb IQ @6400 then low IQ @25600....

And, this Cam has an  an very good AF with an big AF area in the screen. And Able to use lenses with an maximal aperture of 8!
(Nikon blog)

(I would be pleased to use my 100-400 with my 1,4 III converter on the 7D2....)

And again: Nikon did it right.
Let us see, if the 7D2 is the plus of 600-800$ worth, when the 7D2 will come on market in the End of 2013.
The 7100 will be availaböle in some weeks....

Friends of mine told me that they read in an Nikon blog this night that the 7100 will be able to use UHS-I cards. If you use 2 of  theses, 6 fps in raw will be able. continuously. And using lenses with an "maximal" aperture of 8!!!
 I do not know if this is really right, but we will see in some days, when the first users will hold the Cam in their hands.

EOS Bodies / Re: Are you really serious about 6D?
« on: February 08, 2013, 06:39:38 PM »
I just returned from an meeting of our local photoclub and I am a little bit dissatisfied.
Three members bought an 6D and we compared the pics. And they are really different. They took the same lens to shoot equal macro photos. The IQ is visible different. One cam had obiously more noise >400, the other one´s IQ was visibly more flat (color and contrast).
The owners of the 6D will tra to send it to Canon to optimize the IQ.

In my eyes it ist dissatisfying, if you spend 2000€ and a lot of time in choosing the "right" camera. And then it is just fortune if you get an goog model or not.
Sorry, but I had to say this.


p.s.: There is one person owning an brand new Nikon 5200. There is an really good idea in showing the aperture and speed by making it graphically visible on the display.

My photographic background and lightning system got ruined 2011 after hail broke the glass of my conservatory.

So I bought it at Phottix and other Chines companies and saved more then 900€!!!!

I bought the grip from Ayex.

There seem to be other brand names for the same item - does your grip have also the blue 60d markings like the Meike one described above?

95€ @ amazon [...] So, it was a good deal. 265€ for the Orirginal Grip is a little bit to much  :o

Then again, shipped from CN it's currently €50 + €10 tax if you're unlucky (I missed the €30 deal, shame on me).

Interresting, but the Grip looks identical to the Phottix Grip for my 60D. Has an inprint on the upper side, the Phottix has none.
 But it does not work on the 60D. I don´t know why.

Pricegap:  :'(

I bought the grip from Ayex. Seems to be identical. But its taste is neutral, not unpleasant.
95€ @ amazon. Fuction is ok. Buttons are well built and the pressure, you need to push is the same like on the camera.

So, it was a good deal. 265€ for the Orirginal Grip is a little bit to much  :o

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Confirms 70D; Future of Semi-Pro DSLR is FF
« on: February 01, 2013, 04:36:52 PM »
The increased interest of prosumers for FF camera will not be caused by Canon not making crop anymore, but by Canon making much cheaper FF in the (far) future.

In this case, they'd better start making cheap ef lenses, too - people might want some tele lens offers that are sharp *and* don't cost 3x-5x the price of the camera body...

I don´t think that Canon will do that.
The "better" compact Cameras are more and more apearing on the market. My son got an Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200. 450€. And I think that the shots are even as good as my daughters E0s D600. Half of the price. As fast as. 

So, Canon maybe will seperate on the market. Average lenses will apear from other manufacturers. But the "Primes" will still be from Canon.  And they will be priced over 2000€

Does anybody know, if Canon will allow AF with lenses that hat an beginning aperture of 8.0? Or will this not be happening?

Is Nikon allowing it?
