... still hoping the 400 f/5.6 L IS gets replaced by a 500 f/5.6 L IS ...
Boo hoo I want one too  :-[

glad to see I'm not the only one!
Yes! As many of us who want a rather big white L telephoto that does not cost a 5 digit amount  ::)

Maybe next time he should use a fast prime ;)
+1 I was about to comment on that when I saw your comment. The 24-70 2.8 II is not the end all be all lens. But I agree the picture is superb  8)

Thanks for the info Ray
Maybe the tape from the light leak fix is interfering with AF assist  :o :o
;D  ;D  ;D

Lenses / Re: EF 24-70 f/4L IS & EF 35 f/2 IS
« on: November 05, 2012, 08:11:55 PM »
both lenses are completely off the mark.

35/2.0 is in need of a successor, but like the current one it should really have been a low-cost, decent IQ lens, rather than unnecessary IS at the price of an L lens.  A modern 50/1.4 Mk. II  with IQ at least equivalent to the Nikon AF-S 50/1.4 at the same price would have been far more urgent.
+1
24-70 is a total mess. Ridiculous that the 2.8 did not come with IS on top of the excellent IQ.
Instead of the 14-70/4 Canon should have improved the 24-105 and extended it to 24-120/4.0 IS - with better IQ than Nikon but at the same price.
+1
I agree on both. Canon is missing the obvious.

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...
