Nice concept, but unless manufacturers can make a profit, they will not spend the time or money.  All about their return on investment.


Age old question:  what is in it for them?

Lenses / Re: Proper way to set down gripped camera

Depends on the setup you are using.
 
If tripod collar, flat on bottom of grip and foot.  If no collar, on left side.  Does not appear to create a discernable amout of stress on the mount.
 
YMMV

Love the airport's disclaimer in the article about the security threats.  Not very comforting.

Neither of these lenses function well with a teleconverter from Canon or Kenko.

... to be precise: Canon doesn't fit (or destroys your lens),

 
this confuses me...are you referring to the Canon TC?

How do you think this will effect the future pricing for the 580EX II, as dealers try to get rid of their existing stock?

B&H has an online quoting system that you can use.  Follow the prompts to "sell equipment".

Their process is to offer no more than 70% of current retail value for used equipment.  Nothing near what you can get thru a private sale on CL ot net on e-bay (after their fees), but that is the compromise between the "speed and convenience" of dealing with them (their sales pitch).


You will definitely not get top dollar for your gear at either Adorama or B&H.

Hey gang, as part of the "oh, by the way" discovery process, now I need to consider a bag or pack to tote one of these monsters to/from the ball fields.


Think Tank Galss Taxi looks good, but sure there are many more option out there


What do you use?  Do you keep strap attached?


Thanks, Dan.

They look like some type of recycled plastic material.  looking for my (Dutch to English) translator button to read the description.  Fortunately, I do not do much tropical travel, but moisture is everywhere.
 
@D.Sim - did your sister ever figure out you were the "borrower"?  I have two sisters and that would have been an interesting "discussion".
