I lost all respect for Ken Rockwell after reading this:
I know he, in his weird way, was trying to be "funny"...but so many things just go over the line in that page. When reading his photography pages, and when you see him in the few YouTube videos he is in, you get the feeling is a crass, arrogant buffoon...but when you read his "Where do Babies Come From"...you realize he's everything you fear he is...then you throw up.
I don't even bother to click on links to kenrockwell.com anymore...all I ever see now is...where do babies come from... T_T T_T T_T T_T T_T
This actually makes me accept that a couple of countries Ive lived in has internet censorship. He must have been drunk.
this will be softer than a marshmallow....
Would that be a new marshmallow or a 3 month old marshmallow?
It was a difficult choice between the sigma and the canon for me
I really liked the canon and the IS but I decided for me the extra sharpness wide open and extra stop of light of the sigma was worth more, but that was when prices were equal with the big drop in price the canon is alot more appealing especially because its ALOT smaller and lighter.
And that is exactly why I do feel that Canon made a mistake with initial pricing. There are those that argue that a high price for early adopters is the way to go and perfectly justifiable. It may be justifiable, but it is also a mistake, IMO. How many others like you would have purchased the Canon instead of the Sigma if the initial price had been $200-300 less for the Canon? This excellent lens has had next to zero buzz because it was initially overpriced. Contrast that with, say, the new Tamron 150-600mm, which has a waiting list of months everywhere in large part because it is a a good lens at an excellent price. For that matter, look at the "shorty-forty". It seems like it has ended up in just about everyone's bag (including my own). Would that have been the case if it was even $100 more expensive?
I don't even use my 40mm very much, but I don't sell it because it represents such a small investment that it is worth hanging on to.
In autumn I ordered an Fstop backpack, containing an internal storage box. This backpack is great for one to two days hiking. But the problem is to get access to the camera, if you need it immediatly.
I will have to look for another backpack with an fast release on the side, sized about 25-30 liters.
It has to contain a Canon 5DMkIII (with grip if possible), 100-400mm L, (or 70-200mm 2.8 II). One 100mm 2.8 Macro, 50mm 1.4 and a 18-35mm 1.8 lens. No notebook. Place for some food and drinks and clothes. good carrying comfort needed.
Price: Not above 500$.
Who can help me?
I love my KATA 3in1-30 Backpack/ Slingpack, that can open the camera with lens on the Sides and on the top.
Have a look at this one:
It's an updated and new style. I Love the rotating middle. I've tried it with a 5d3 and 3 lenses (70-200 2.8 v2 & 24-105 attached) + flash inside. Worked really well.
Slightly OT (but not much I think!) I have been checking the DCW website pretty much every day and this morning I saw that they have a listing for the 50 Art in Canon, Nikon and Sony mounts for AUD996. I have absolutely no connection to them, I just thought that a legit pricepoint would be of interest (and of course as a heads-up to any Downunder CR folks)
How can they lose? This is going to be a huge hit, perhaps even more than the 35 Art...
