It's overdue, and in high demand. I'm sure this lens will be well received if it stays under 2k.

This statement has been made before for new Canon products and is almost definitely untrue - I expect the new lens to easily be priced above 2k.

So your saying it's not over due and not in demand and wouldn't be well received if it was under 2k?  ???
;D

Lenses / Re: Canon 14mm II for "Yangshuo, China"

So, to sum up, do you intend to get:

2 x 5D3 bodies
14mm 2.8L II
24-70 2.8L II
70-200 2.8L IS II

I think it is a very good combination.

Just some thoughts/suggestions:

I would swap the 14 II with TS-E 17 L if I knew that I would be able to shoot interesting buildings.
Also, I would get a 70-200 4L IS instead of 2.8 to lower the weight. But then I do have both lenses so I can chose.
(So the last one is more a though rather than suggestion).

I have the 300 2.8 II and I love this lens.  I was in your dilemma awhile back a chose the lens over the 1dx.  I still want the 1dx but I've been able to get by without it for the time being.  Since you have the 5d mk III, 7d and both teleconverters, I think you would get more benefit from the 300 2.8.  If you got the lens, you could run two bodies--one with the 300 (and a 1.4x converter) and one with the 70 - 200.  This is a great set-up for shooting sports.  Can't get into Candlestick with this set of kit?   Join the club.  You can't start at the top, shoot local sports with this very profession level gear.  Sell the 300 f4 and the 100 - 400.


+1
That's my idea. I am saving for the 300 2.8 II (and already have the 1.4 III - that was easy)
This is indeed the best scenario. 300 2.8L IS II is a lens that will serve someone for decades...

Well, there is a CR2 that next year we will make the same discussion about a CR2 for a new 100-400 f/4-5.6L IS  ;D

Also if the file does not exist now, try to retrieve it by a recovery program - some SANDISK cards used to come with a license for such a program - and see if it is intact.

I second that. Canon should get the engineering staff to start again working on great ideas.

It seems to me it's not about ideas, but about laws of physics - the innovative 200-400L is heavy for a reason, the same reason why they left IS out of the 24-70L2. And they are innovative with IS primes and hybrid af on the 24-70/4, while your request for just "updating" the traditional 35L with better iq contradicts the great ideas you seem to want.

One real innovation though will be the new line of DO lenses, there have been lots of patents on CR, but who knows when these will be released - probably only when they sold a non-DO prime to everyone so people have a reason to upgrade :-p

If Canon released a new line of DO lenses, I bet you would see a lot of people in forums like this, complaining that they don't have enough contrast...and wishing they would make a counterpart that did not use diffractive optics.  There's no shortage of people who like to complain.
More than 10 years have passed since the Canon introduced a DO lens. They should be able to make DO lenses with enough contrast by now...  ;D

We are going back to HK to visit family this November, our annual visit, and one of our destination will be :

Hope you can see that too, sometime.

£200 vs. £825 is too much. It comes to whether you trust this service center. In addition, as it is now I doubt you can sell it for a lot of money too.

Is this an artifact from a focused LED headlamp hitting the sensor in a weird way?
No way! Have you also shot in raw? Is the result the same? Do you see this on your camera's screen?

When I told this story to a friend he told me that once he had taken an extender with him  thinking he was taking a teleconverter!

What's the difference?
