EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Cannot Keep Screwing It's Customers Over
« on: December 21, 2012, 07:28:41 AM »
Lower prices is never a problem. Instead, initial very high prices are. But we set our own rules. If price is very high and we think an item is not worth it we simply don't get it. Let them try to sell it.

For example this is what I am thinking about the new 24, 28, 35 IS prime lenses. They are simply not worth it. (But this is just me. I wouldn't get them anyway.)

Today (21 Dec) is the big day. The world is going to end and we're all going to die. Remind your wife of this and suggest to her that you open your presents this morning.

Then, pretend to be surprised when the world doesn't end (unless, of course, the Eta Carinae hypernova event happens today and we actually do all die).
So the non-5DMkIII world ends and a the 5DMkIII just begins  :)

Don't know what I did to deserve my wife but I would so do it again and again (and again)! I hope you have as much fun with yours as I have had with mine. 8)
Now you have to be more precise: you mean wife or camera?   ;D
Well, why not both? ;D
Correct  ;D

While finding a hiding spot for my wifes present at home (macbook air), i was rummaging at the back of the guest room closet to see if there was space there, i found a 5d mkiii kit!!!!

Well you had better upgrade that Air to a Pro Retina! Fair's fair! Otherwise she might swap the 5DIII back for a 6!
;D

Now you have to buy a good compact flash card like Sandisk Extreme 32Gb or 64Gb (and optionally a similarly sized SD card). That way you will be fully prepared.   :)

Software & Accessories / Re: EOS Solutions Disc latest version?
« on: December 20, 2012, 09:02:42 AM »
hello,

it seems that the Canon site has been updated. Now the 27.1 disk products exist as Canon free updates.

I used the following link:

For example:

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8L Non-IS to Be Discontinued in 2013 [CR2]

The lens is not cheap and most prefer the IS version.

Maybe a new version will be released at a higher price.
Very interesting. A higher price would make everyone to prefer the IS version.

I used to have this lens since 1996! Unfortunately it was stolen 3 years ago.

I was printing B&W and I realized that it was the first zoom I had with a prime lens IQ.

When it was stolen I got the 70-200 f/4L IS which to tell the truth was much lighter and smaller (an ideal travel lens).

However I could not forget it completely. A year ago I also got the 70-200 f/2.8 IS II.

Although I got the IS version, I will feel sorry to see it discontinued.

Although I have the 70-200 f/2.8L IS II I think I am addicted to 135L.

It is small, light and super sharp.

Hi,

I have a feeling that if I purchased the 135 I would use strictly for portraits and nothing else. With the 70-200 I feel that would would use it all the time.

Thanks,

Then you just answered to your own dilemma!

Zeiss 21mm might be my fave now.  The Canon 24L II proved pretty pointless for night sky more open than F2.8 anyway.  Coma extends well into the photo, bad coma, so it tends to make it a little pointless for that added F1.4 to F2.8 range it would allow at night.  Unless one likes big ol wings off their stars I guess.  Samyang 24 F1.4 had less coma and might be interesting.  Canon 14L had plenty of that too.
+1 I use Zeiss 21mm 2.8 fully open. I had used a 16-35mm 2.8 fully open and the stars were ... seagulls at the edges! My 35mm 1.4L has coma too. Thanks for the coma information regarding 24L II and 14L.
