EOS Bodies - For Stills / The 5D Mark III Fix
« on: May 02, 2012, 12:38:25 PM »
From LensRentals.com
LensRentals.com has received their first shipment of fixed 5D Mark III bodies. They did what any of us would have done, they disassembled one to see what the fix was. It turns out the fix is two pieces of black tape. I actually joked with a friend that the fix would be “some kind of tape job”. This sort of thing is pretty normal inside electronics, so don’t be worried about tape coming off and that sort of thing. I have seen entire modules held in place by tape inside cameras.

If the fix works, who cares how they did it. :)

Astrophotography fun
Well, this subject is way beyond my level of understanding. However, the Canon EOS 60Da is now in stock at B&H for $1499. So if you’re into the stars, apparently this is the camera for you. Unless you’ve modified some other camera to do the same thing.

From B&H
B&H has started shipping 5D Mark III’s to customers today. No word on the quantity they have received or how long the preorder list still is. No word from Amazon or Adorama on stock or shipping.

does anyone know if the rebate holds if you buy two lenses and one body?

B&H told me there is no limit on quantity. Their web site shows the discounts with multiple lenses.



It seems the glitch has been corrected by Adorama and it no longer calculates the same way for me. 

Save more than you thought?

I’ve been told and shown that Adorama is actually tripling rebates when you buy a qualifying camera body with a qualifying lens.

For Example (When Bought Together)

Total: $5248

Stay with me know, here are the discounts that have been applied to the above order.

The Canon EF 85 f/1.2L II regular price is $2199, when you search it on the site it is listed at $150 off at $2049. When you bundle it with the 5D Mark III Adorama takes another $300 off. So the savings on the Canon EF 85 f/1.2L II is $450 when the rebate program is actually for $300 off of $2199.

Thanks Jeremy (View POTN Thread)

EOS Bodies / Canon EOS 5D Mark III Landing This Week?
« on: April 30, 2012, 05:48:27 PM »

From a major retailer

I was told just a moment ago that new shipments of the Canon EOS 5D Mark III are expected at retailers this week, perhaps as early as Wednesday.

As soon as they’re in stock, I’ll let you know.


EOS Bodies / Canon Rebel T4i [CR2]
« on: April 30, 2012, 05:12:27 PM »
Canon Rebel T4i coming soon
I’m told the announcement for the Rebel T4i will happen very soon. There may have been multiple delays in announcing it while Canon deals with production of already announced products.

The megapixel count will not match the 24mp of the new Nikon D3200 I am told. It will have DIGIC V, new video features and a few ergonomic changes. Still waiting on the definitive specs.

From a different source, we’ve been told there may be a new autofocus technology when shooting video, as well as a touchscreen.

Tamron EF 24-70 f/2.8 VC
Don’t want to wait for the new Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L II? Don’t feel like spending $2200? Wanted some form of image stabilization, perhaps the new Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 VC is for you.

Quick MTF Review
Roger at Lensrentals.com also did a quick and dirty MTF comparison between the new Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 VC and the current Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L. The Tamron faired quite well.


Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 VC vs Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L (Higher numbers are better)

Roger also mentions the autofocus performance is pretty good on the Tamron, maybe not as quick as the Canon, but much faster than Tamron’s 70-200.

You can read the entire quick and dirty review at LensRentals.com here.

Canon General / Canon Aims to Sell More Stuff.....
« on: April 29, 2012, 02:57:24 PM »

… of course they do

Canon is projecting selling 27% more DSLR cameras this year, to the tune of 9.2 million units. They’re also aiming for a 17% increase in compact camera sales, up to 22 million units.

With DSLR sales growth, lens sales should take a similar path upwards.

Said about their compact segment

“… we will further differentiate and enhance our lineup by launching new cameras offering the image qualities that approaches SLR cameras; furthering the improvement in design and qualities, and by incorporating features such as network, connectivity capabilities.”

Cue the mirrorless rumors.
