Canon General / Re: 24-70Mk2 fell off my 5DMk3 and smashed
« on: March 29, 2013, 12:12:15 PM »
This is unfortunate. I am really sorry.

You reminded my of my accidents. The last summer I had 3!

The second one was an almost had a fatal camera bag accident. Now that bag contained:

5DMkII, 70-200 f/2.8L IS II, 35mm 1.4L, TS-E 17mm f/4L, TS-E 24mm II L, EF1.4X !!!

Fortunately EVERYTHING survived 100%. (This is a long story...)

In the aftermath of what had happened, when I was at my room I wanted to put my 35mm 1.4L on its lens pouch.
Well, it slipped from my fingers and dropped a few centimeters on my ... TS-E 24mm II which was on the bed!!!!!!!!

Both lenses fortunately had their caps on.

The TS-E lens had no issues, not even an external mark on it!

The 35mm was equally scratch free everywhere!!!

When I tried though to put it back on my camera I had to apply extra pressure to hear the click.

So by accident this lens is hard to move and fall BUT... I have to pay attention to make sure the lens is
really attached to the camera because it can seem attached but is missing a final twist.

Mine were user errors. You however may try to ask Canon and see how they respond.

I do not believe they will replace the lens for free but there is a chance they will offer you a generous price reduction to get a new one.

Well during 2012 , I got 5DMkIII,  35mm 1/4 and TS-E 17mm 4L.

The problem: During 2011 I got TS-E24mm II, EF100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS and EF70-200 f/2.8L IS II.

During 2013 I need a rest, oufff  :o

Lenses / Re: New 100-400 to Launch with EOS 7D Mark II [CR2]
« on: March 29, 2013, 11:43:53 AM »
A very solid source says as it stands, a new 100-400 will be announced alongside the EOS 7D Mark II in the late summer/early fall.
Hmmm how a CR2 rumor (for the lens) can include a CR1 rumor (the camera)?

Either should be both CR2 or... CR1.
Seriously now, the 100-400 II is becoming an ... urban myth....  ;D  ;D  ;D

1 lens: 24-105 f/4L IS

2 lenses: 35mm 1.4L  135mm f/2L

Some will autofocus only wide open at f/5.6.
Quite an indication that they are not really value for money as there are already incompatibility issues. By the time next generation canon cameras are introduced they may not even function fully open...
True some models work as you said but the future is unknown. Someone would have to find a truly cheap - and working - lens to take this risk...
Now, for Sigma fanatics I have a wonderful 14mm f/3/5 which works only wide open! In addition it serves as a nice paperweight... (there is no additional charge for that  ;D  )

EOS Bodies / Re: 7D Mark ii with WiFi/GPS or Without?

+1 with you, Azezal. Unfortunately, it seems we are few.
I'm even in a smaller group, no GPS, no WiFi, no swivel screen, and no touch screen.
There wasn't such a selection, otherwise you might had a surprise  ;)

Landscape / Re: Spiral Arm of the Milky Way above the Texas Desert
« on: February 20, 2013, 06:19:32 AM »
That's certainly true!  I'm not exactly a world class expert either, of course.  I just love Milky Way pictures!  I'm thinking the galaxy in your shot, is Andromeda.  It's the closest galaxy, and is on a collision course with us.  Will take a little while to get here though.
Yes! It is indeed Andromeda  :) You can enjoy viewing it even with binoculars...

As it seems, we may be getting closer to an actual 7D Mark II. I ask you, how would you prefer your 7D Mark II to be served?

And would you pay extra for the additional perks like WiFi and GPS?
1 .I wouldn't pay for gimmicks that I do not want to use:
2. Sealing could be compromised
3. I do not trust Canon to make a camera able to turn them off 100% to avoid battery drain.

And, for that matter, can we please just have the articulating screen already? Anyone that doesn't like it can just LEAVE IT WHERE IT IS. Seriously, I've needed one this entire week...and no, I don't want to go buy a dedicated monitor. That's a stupid suggestion.
Maybe a delicate articulating monitor is an equally stupid suggestion for a supposedly rugged (OK semi-rugged) camera....

Try to rent a similar camera. It will be a pity to come back without photos. Then you can have your camera serviced.

Welcome to Capitalism.

It's a hard and ugly thing.


...But still so much better than the alternatives.
Why? You assume there is only an alternative and in fact a worse one?

How about all other things being equal, companies try to play nice and still earn a lot of money in the process?

Very silly. People will go to Rio instead...

Lenses / Re: Canon 2X extender : Mk2 vs Mk3 on 70-200 f/2.8L IS USM
« on: February 14, 2013, 01:07:32 PM »
In testing, the 2X mk3 converter offers substantial image quality improvements when attached to any Canon lens over the mk2 version.
Can you please elaborate? Canon does not mention optical improvements.

Which lens did you use to compare EF2X II with EF2X III ?

Did you test wide open?

Did you compare the quality at the center, the edges or both?

Sorry for so many questions but I have EF2X II and if there is not much improvement in IQ I'd rather spend my money elsewhere.

Thanks
