The 2 links refer to SuperWASP (W.A.S.P. = Wide Angle Search for Planets) an  extra-solar planet detection program.

They use an array of EF200mm 1.8L   Canon lenses.

So even if Canon lenses are not taken to space they are used in space projects!

First, there has to be an EF14-24 !!!

how likely is it

You did not say how likely it is to be an EF14-24 you said

"how likely is it that a EF 14-24mm can be used with screw on filters"

There is a slight (er big I mean) difference...

EOS Bodies / Re: Buy 1DX now or wait for an upgrade?
« on: May 05, 2013, 01:30:55 PM »
Upgrade will be announced by late October and will ship by January. I'm also waiting.

I know many will disagree but look up the product cycles and dates of the announcement and shipments of both the 1D and 1Ds.

You're going to be really disappointed in October and especially in January.
Well, he didn't mention the year, did he?    ;D

Lenses / Re: Verifying USM / Af noise in Canon 24-105 L

I tried my 24-105 yesterday on my 5D3 and I noticed that IS was noisier than when it was on my 5D2! But even on 5D2 it was noisier than what it used to be a few months ago  :-\

It's time to get 24-70 mrk II ;D
And that way I will have no ... IS noise problems  ;D

Having said nice things about my 24-105, I tried it today on my 5D3 and I noticed that IS was noisier than when it was on my 5D2! But even on 5D2 it was noisier than it used to be   :-\

Since I got 24-105 I added 35mm 1.4 L, TS-E24 L II, 135mm 2L to my collection
(plus some other that have completely different focal length). Add to that my already existing EF50 1.8 (version 1) and EF85mm 1.8.

So I do not use it so often as I used to. But still remains useful: As a walk around lens lens when 1 lens is better than no lens at all.
Be that excursions, birthday parties, etc.

I would not sell it.

I have Zeiss Distagon 21mm 2.8 ZE and I love it!

But I also have Canon EF135mm 2L and I love it too. AF is very important at 135mm at least for me. Also, since tt is difficult (although not impossible of course) to improve on this lens as far as IQ is concerned and even if Zeiss prove a little better it won't matter.

So it is Canon's EF135mm 2L for me period. YMMV though...

Lenses / Re: EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x Available Mid 2014?
« on: April 24, 2013, 06:14:04 AM »
First, the correct (complete) title of this thread should be:

EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x Available Mid 2014? (CR1)   ;D  ;D

Seriously, apart from the few (my guess) who will need one (and only one) big white that will have to stay continuously on the camera, a 500mm f/4L and a second one with less mm (either 70-200 2.8 or 300 2.8 ) are just fine (and do exist!)




1109
So this update does not address the issue with AF-assist beam lag. Is that a separate update?
+1 I was hoping that they would include that fix too...

1110
I also shoot stills only but I do not consider it a "video" firmware update only.
They will add f/8 autofocus capability after all.
