Lenses / Re: Canon EF 16-35 F/4L IS -- Reviews are trickling in...

So, the lens has truly negligible coma! What a dilemma. It is f/4. OK, I knew it when I bought it but now wmy 14mm 2/8 II will fight with the 16-35 for their night use  ;D

With regards to the 12/14-24 idea, would people prefer f4 and greater sharpness or f2.8 and take a slight hit on absolute sharpness - I don't believe you can have both - personally, I'm holding out for 12-24 to replace my 16-35II, I'd take a hit on absolute sharpness for a f2.8 aparture.
Can you please elaborate? (about absolute sharpness).  Also I believe we can have both sharpness and 2.8 judging from 24-70 2.8 II lens.

Lenses / Re: Canon 24-70 f/4L IS disappointing?

I would sell both to get the 24-70 2.8 II.

I got this lens yesterday :)

Now I need to go on vacation to test it (2 birds with one stone  :) )

I just made a few internal test shots and the IS looks promising.
Congrats!  I'm itching to get back out with mine, too...the weekend is getting closer at least.
Thanks  :) I gave my EF24mm 2.8 (non IS) which was not being used and saved 250 Euros of the price (initial 1050) Now I want to see how it performs at the edges since I had sold my 16-35 2.8 version 1 for this very reason (plus the fact that it had coma).

It is interesting that it is as big and as heavy as my 16-35 2.8 was!

Lenses / Re: Safari 300 2.8 Mkii or 200-400 1.4x
« on: July 17, 2014, 08:28:15 AM »
If I had the 300 2.8 IS II and a 1.4XIII I would put the 1.4 permanently for the safari. It would be an excellent 420 4L IS. This and the 70-200 would be enough. Plus the 300 2.8 + 1.4 combination would be lighter than the 200-400. Just my opinion. However, keep in mind that I did not and I will not have experience with a safari so take all this with a grain of salt.

For me it was the year of the lens (well actually all years from 2009 up to 2014 were the years of the lens).

I mean judging from the lenses I bought ...  ;D

Yet another 100-400 L II rumor. And it is a CR1! Quite reassuring  ;D

25
Two questions:
What can Canon put into a T6i to make it interesting?
Only a better sensor, oups  ::) They will put it first into more expensive cameras  :)

When we will know the final specification for Canon 7D Mark II


When Canon makes an official announcement. Until then it is rumours and speculation.
19Mpixels, 8.5 fps,  23 AF points, 0.5 stop improvement   ;D   ;D   ;D

about another 30% off without video feature. I'm in ;D
+1 (actually -30  :) ) for that especially for 6D's video...  ;D

EOS Bodies / Re: Eos7D mk2, How disappointed will you be if . . .?
« on: July 07, 2014, 10:25:31 AM »
I will not be disappointed because ... I will not buy it anyway ;D

I keep my disappointment for 5DMkIV  ;D

Canon 7D it's ok, but the new all espected 7D Mark II will be better than may Canon 6D - 24 Mp + better low light ISO.

Must a joke of the day... ;D

Perhaps the laws of physics don't apply in Romania.   ::)
especially for ... Count Canon  ;D

Canon lens classification is very specific.

Telephoto is a designation that includes 135 to 300 mm non-zoom lenses.

It does not include anything else.

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/ef_lens_lineup

My wild guess is an Image Stabilized 135mm f/2 for want of any better idea.
Hmmm,  I guess there is a CR2 that RLPhoto will buy you a beer  ;D
