The current 50mm f/1.4 needs improved build quality, not IS.
I thought it needed improved Image Quality wide open...

Just keep in mind that software that corrects distortion lowers the resolution. At least this is what I have seen reported even for the superb Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 (which by the way has a mustache distortion).

Better start saving for the 200-400 with 1.4 built in as it looks to be current replacement
No way. These two are not similar. They differ by a digit in the price and by a few Kilograms in weight  not to mention the size ;D

But if it costs so much (justifiably, of course, because of the IS and FF format), I might rather spend a few hundred more and go with the 1.4L. Let's see...
+1 Exactly! Actually this is what I have done already. A 35mm 1.4L II would cost a fortune and it would raise the price of the used 35mm 1.4L (judging from 4-70 2.8 version I)

I believe you but it's unrealistic to expect that this lens will sell at that ridiculous price. This is expensive even for a f/2.8 version...

lets hope so..

the YEN price translates into ~ $1800... and from the past experience the price here in euro is the same as in dollar for the USA.  ::)

canons pricing has gone to ridiculous levels. so i would not rule 1700 euro for this lens out.

maybe canon is going the leica way.
i really don´t know what they are thinking.

but i do know that the new prices are driving new customers away from DSLR´s.
 

Indeed! Though, if Canon wants to go Leica way, perhaps they should consider offering Leica quality?..  ::)
Well said...

I received this lens from 1st patch last 4 digits were xx18. The lens was sharp, but it has little vignetting at 24mm. I decided to exchange for another copy.

Replacement arrived on Oct 31th, last 4digits are xxx1932. It's sharp and has same vignetting at 24mm.
Since the first was sharp, I believe that you risked a little. All lenses exhibit some vignetting. I have never seen reports of vignetting that varied in different lens copies. YMMV.

They specialize in introducing useless or almost useless lenses  ::) (at least relative to the lenses we all wait for)

So instead of a 400 5.6L IS, 100-400 L II, 35 1.4L II, 14-24 we will get these 2 stupid lenses?  :o

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 1Dx ISO100 high DR shadows SNR improvement
« on: November 04, 2012, 03:41:42 PM »
This is routinely applied in astrophotograpy if combined with precision German Equatorial Mounts. It is also used when combining many video frames into one photo (see registax). But I doubt it can be used elsewhere. You have to exclude leaves, people, water, clouds maybe and I am sure I haven't thought of everything...

One year went by, but it is still under in rumors. Do I need another year to wait for it?
Yes!  ;D

It just kills me when people complain about the weight of todays DSLRs'.  ::)

remember the canon 1V sans grip

Best... Form factor... EVER!

a 1D like this would be killer
+1 You reminded me of my used EOS1n cameras  I miss this kind of design... :(

EOS Bodies / Re: Official DXOMark Sensor Score for the EOS-1D X
« on: November 03, 2012, 11:32:25 PM »
there are  calculations who shows about 24 stops of DR when the eyes and the brain interprets  scanning of a  motive, scene from the blackest  to whitest
So there will be a rumor that in the year 2120 Canon sensors will have 23 stops of DR and Nikon 25  ;D
The problem is there will be still arguing whether this is valid because DxO will have downsized the 300 Mpixel Canon and the 500Mpixel Nikon images down to ... 8  ;D

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon to start using 0.18um (180nm) process for FF?

Regarding "Canon says that..."
Well, total BS. Or actually, even worse than total BS - it's "Marketing speak"! 
Well you happened to use two expressions for something I used a combined one: "Marketing BS"   ;D

My cats may not like the experiment (the always sit outside the door to the workshop and meow when I play with ultrasonics), but I think I can confuse them for a few minutes for science.
Nooo poor cats. If there is not such thing as ... cat ear plugs  ;D put them in a room far away and close the door.
