Lenses / Re: I bit the bullet!

Now that the Nikon 80-400mm upgrade lens in now in the hands of customers and reviewers, perhaps Canon will think it is now safe to announce their new 100-400 lens (I'm hoping for 200-500 F4 non-push pull - probably would be too heavy) version.
200-500 would be monstrous in size, price and weight.

The fixed 500F/4L IS II costs at the 10K region...

I was expecting a bit more believable prank.
Simple, choose between:

7DMkII
EF35mm 1.4L II
EF400mm f/5.6L IS
EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II

(All shipping May 2013  ;D )
OK I meant shipping May 2014  ;D  ;D  ;D

(It has to be believable...)

Canon General / Re: 24-70Mk2 fell off my 5DMk3 and smashed

Since this was the very beginning of a long night of shooting I decided to get a little rough with the lens and managed to jam it back into alignment.  It snapped in and seems to be working fine now.  I need to AFMA all of my lenses now, but so far problems in site.  Any thoughts on sending the 24-70 into CPS for alignment if I don't see any problems with it?  Kind of worried about getting the lens back worse than when I sent it in.
I cannot imagine how you fixed it but if it seems OK (left part = right part = very good) and focusing is 100% OK
in all focal lengths then my opinion is: DO NOT SEND it. Enjoy using it!  :)

You did not need to go in such trouble. You could just mention the EF100-400mm L lens successor post. There is a rumor for this lens every year  ;D  ;D  ;D

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

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?
« on: February 20, 2013, 12:50:13 PM »
+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  ;)
