the gorillapod ball heads are next to useless for anything bigger than a speedlight though, any kind of small arca swiss style head works ok though especially if you use L-brackets

This "Video" has nothing to do with humor. ItÂ´s filmed violence, nothing more. I would not allow such a piece of S___, if I were responsible for Canon rumors. What about creativity, what about ideas?
haha its mine too, not a fan of the grainThe ultimate thing we should ask, is noise always a bad thing?
What is wrong with a grainy photo? EVERYTHING shot back in the old days was grainy when enlarged much (except maybe the 16x20's...) Watch an old 30's movie. Find some old WWII footage or pictures. Is grain always bad?
What is wrong with embracing the grain as an artistic expression?
Because it looks awful, and it did all those years we shot film as well. It's like sprinkling dirt and sand on your pictures. It's the second worst image artifact next to unintentional motion blur, and ahead of unintentional missed focus.
Of course, that's just my opinion.
I've got one of the tiny ones, it looks like a toy. It came with a used DSLR I bought, but I've never used it. I'm a little doubtful as to what it might be good for.
I would usually say buy it now, but, after owning five of the 24-70mm lenses, I will not buy another. In fact, I've been hooked on prime lenses, so I may not even buy a new version if it comes out.
If you buy one, test it carefully for decentering, which has often been seen, and be prepared to exchange it until you get a good one, or you get tired of returning them.
Although a wide aperture lens is needed for very low light images, a 60D which does not have focus micro adjust to tweak the lens AF when wide open might be a disappoiintment. The shallow depth of field at f/1.4 needs a very accurate lens AF adjustment, and the Sigma is noted for inaccuracy, even the 35mm L often benefirs from being tweaked to the actual camera body.
