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

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II [CR1]

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

65
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

Lenses / Re: The sharpness curse!

Hate me for loving that 1.4 sharpness, I REALLY don't care  :P
..
Great photo of your beautiful daughter - turning a "snapshot" into a true photograph!  I don't hate you for wanting the sharpness wide open - I'm sure nearly all 50L owners would be beyond excited if Canon came out with a 50L II that was razor sharp at f/1.2!
+1 Exactly! And then they would forget about the previous L "unique" characteristics and they would enjoy their new sharp 50mm L lens  ;D

Only 2460 focusing points ? If it does not have 2470 points at least it is useless...  ;D ;D ;D

OH, BY THE WAY: The number of focusing points has to be ODD in order to have a central one  ::)

Only if the focus points are symmetrical.  For a counterexample, consider three points in a triangle, with a fourth point in the center.  :)
Technically true but without any purpose. Anyway I still insist in a camera having at least 2470 points (ehhmm 2471  ;D ;D ;D )

EOS Bodies / Re: What do you hope-for MOST from Canon in 2014
« on: June 24, 2014, 11:58:34 AM »
EF 16-35 f/2.8L IS or if they ... can't include IS then EF16-35 f/2.8L III.

Sharp fully open up to the corners, low CA, low distortion, low coma (very low coma), low vignetting and ... low price (OK just kidding for the price)
