Reviews / Re: 5D3 shooting my cat at ISO 51k at 6:30 a.m.

Pretty impressive, as are your other night shots.

Does this mean you sleep with your 5D as well as the cat ?  ;D

@Sporgon: LOL. No, the cat sneaks in every morning. Attached to the bedroom there is a balcony where it normally sleeps in its "nest". So, my wife let it in...The room although slightly enlighted was still very dark. I could hardly see the cat... But the 5D did 8) I am amazed by these shots. Even the one w/o NR looks usable. I appreciate your comments related to my nightphotography. Cheers, Pedro.

To the other fellow posters: Thanks for contributing!
Still it is obvious that you sleep with your camera  ;D

Lenses / Re: Dropped my 70-200L F4 onto the carpet from my bag. Advice.

I also dropped my 70-200 2.8 ISii. I ran it through focal today and it used to have a adjustment of -2 and now it is at -1.
There is a CR0 that if you drop it one more time the adjustment will go to from -1 to zero!  ;D  ;D
But I wouldn't try it  ::)

Or 60000  ;D

Now you might be right, but a couple of low-resolution images on flickr are unable to show the technical merits of the lens (I like the photos though) because nearly everything looks sharp down-sized so much...
+1 We need 100% magnification for this. A screenshot from a corner of a 100% enlarged image could do I guess...

Just an addition:

My EF300mm f/4L (NON-IS) + EF 1.4X II is sharper than my 100-400 f/5.6L

But that's the very old EF300mm f/4L NON-IS which is out of the equation...

According to

EF400mm f/5.6L > EF300mm F/4L IS + EF1.4X III

EF400mm f/5.6L > ΕF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L

Center fully open:
ΕF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L > EF300mm F/4L IS + EF1.4X III

Edges, Corners fully open
ΕF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L < EF300mm F/4L IS + EF1.4X III

This is a rumors site. That does not exclude negative rumors. So I say ... NO!

OK I have no inside information but it the most logical. 16-35mm f/2.8 lenses have the same diameter more or less with 24-70mm f/2.8 L lenses.
And we all know how many 24-70 2.8 L IS  lenses exist  ;D  ;D  ;D

These desert islands much have an endless supply of batteries and AC power for all the walkman's and cameras folks have theorized about in the past.

You use it for 3 years as is, then you sell it and get 5DMkIV. Problem solved  8)

Lenses / Re: Educate me about why 70mm <> 70mm...
« on: January 05, 2013, 02:14:18 PM »
They cheat ... a little.

Canon's 100-400 at 400mm is reported to have less magnification than fixed focal length EF400mm f/5.6L.

The reported focal length is 360 to 370mm. So it is about 10% less!

10% less at 70mm means 63mm (I guess this is worst case).

All the same the 16-35mm f/2.8L (version I) is reported to be wider that 16-35mm f/2.8L II.

Maybe I should write an article for the site on TS-E use as few people seem to know how to get the best out of these extraordinary lenses

+1 (actually + 1000000)  When it is done not when it is simply announced  ::)

Calling it the Canon 1Ds mk IV makes more sense to me than calling it the Canon 3D
Or 1Ds X

and my workhorse 70-200 2.8 (I never ever leave home without that.)
OP said: Traveling light is a priority so can't really take a big tele and to be honest I don't really shoot over 100mm that often(not yet anyway).
