Lenses / Re: EF 24-70 f/4L IS & EF 35 f/2 IS

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.

as i read it (yen price) the new 24-70mm f4 is will cost around 1700-1800 euro here in germany.

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...

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

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.

There's a very good Firefox Add-On that I use, called Ad-Block Plus.
In short, it blocks ads.
But one very useful side-effect of it is that you can see *exactly* what sites are looked up on each web page. You'd be surprised how many websites are referenced on one single page.

Anyway, there's the "big" 3rd-party advertisers that are on almost every page, google ads, tribalfusion, doubleclick.net and all the rest. Just block these 3rd-party sites and you block most ads.

You know what's interesting about www.senscore.org?
They don't use a 3rd-party advertiser. There are No links to anything else on their page.

You know what that means?
Those ads for nikon aren't just random "it's a camera page so we'll assign it a camera ad" links like you get on place like here.
Those ads for nikon reside on the same website as the scores.

You know what that means?
Nikon are paying that site directly.


Now, if they are paying for one site they may as well pay for another  ::) (just saying there is an "if' in the beginning of the sentence)

The Hoya HMC will degrade image quality.
Interesting. Have you used HMC Super?

If I want to shoot daylight landscape with tilt-shift lenses and get amazing detail at low ISO's, I'll go D800. 

Except for that pesky 'PC-E 24mm control knob hits the flash housing' issue...

Yeah, except for that!  :)

I 'll put it in another way: If  I want to shoot daylight landscape with 5DMkIII or 5DMkII I would chose TS-E 17 L and TS-E 24 L II  ;D
