Oh yes, a touch screen. This seems like a rebel feature.
I can just imagine the hassle a touch screen would create. You put your eye to the viewfinder, your nose touches the screen before the light sensor switches it of...and .... crap, wrong exposure/wrong white balance/incorrect AF drive mode/etc. You just missed your epic shot.
I'll happily pass on touch-screen DSLR's, thanks! :-P
I wonder if the EF 100-400 IS MkII will another 'push-me, pull-you" design? I've never used this model(the original) or even held one, so I don't know how I'd like it in the field trying to quickly zoom on a moving object.apparently its not
I have bought more than 20+ camera accessory including tripod, filter, remote shutter, cf card(transcend) from hong kong ebay.. Never have any trouble.. It is normally for that cheap price if u ever travel to hong kong and see their local price... But for those expensive stuff like camera body and L lens, i will not bought through ebay, but have a holiday in Hong kong and shop at there.. cause the [ travel cost+L lens and body ] still cheaper than the cost of [ L lens and body only ] in my country.
nope I have a spec of dust inside my 300f4L and it causes no issuesIf a lens has some small dust internally it's nothing to walk away from I'm guessing?It theoretically reduces the contrast of the lens. Nothing you'll notice in your pictures. However, many people like the idea of having a clean product. If too much dust starts heaping up it might become noticable or make the moving parts in the lens move less smoothly, or in the worst case scenario, block the aperture curtains. Doesn't really happen much in real life though.
After reading this article I no longer fear dust. http://www.kurtmunger.com/dirty_lens_articleid35.html
According to our dealers here in australia there are 2 kits the 24-105 kit and the kit with the 24-70 II
leedervilles price for the 24-70 kit was tempting as it put the lens at $2200
god knows what the retail on those lenses are going to be here maybe $2800 or 3k
Yep i'm in Oz too as it happens, but I'm more keen to find out when the 24-70 II kit will be in the US so I can go over there and buy one
It just surprises me that there aren't more people in the States asking whether this will be a kit and when!
take some pictures at home and leave them on your cf. Bring the cf to the states (or zurich)
In case they want to see the camera show them pictures you took home on a previous date on the new camera of course .....
You're so wise.
If the 5D3 will display photos from another camera, would it?
i really want to see a performance comparison between the 580 and 600 as on camera flash using a 70-200 f2.8 at 200 to see how the 200 zoom compares to the 105 max of the 580, That would be the only reason for me to consider this flash since i already have quite a few 580s and odins for remoteHow do you like the Odin's? I would imagine you prefer them over the PW miniTT system and the Radio Poppers since you own them.
Here's a tip: get a tripod and shoot at ISO 100 more often.
You beat me to it. High iso and IS lenses are not a substitute for a tripod.
no but there are places you are not allowed to take a tripod and so can only shoot handheld
so its good to have the option if you need it
