Reviews / Re: Review - Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS II
« on: July 01, 2013, 05:21:20 AM »
The optical module for the 600 f/4 II lens is now available for the users of DXO optics software.
Works nicely  ;)
Very nice picture. And much more on topic  :)

I only put Microsoft software on my Windows PC ... not

just curious... what type of PC (Personal Computer) can you put MS software on?

It doesn't matter.  If you don't buy third party stuff, you're just not getting the well-rounded experience of the technology you are involved with and using, even if that third party stuff sucks.  Get with it man.
;D

Canon's answer is complete BS!

I have 300mm f/4L non-IS for a few ... decades!

I have used it with 3rd party Sigma 1.4 and Tamron 2X.
Now I have Canon EF1.4X II and EF2X II

With EF1.4X II it autofocuses fine with all my analog and digital bodies and the quality remains top!

With EF2X II it manual focuses except with my 5D3 which autofocuses fine with latest firmware.

If you think so highly of third party lenses I must ask you to buy my Tokina ATX28-70 f/2.8 which although very sharp with my EOS1n and EOS620 cameras it is a nice PAPERWEIGHT on my EOS5Dx cameras.
So except for a case where I bought a Zeiss lens 3rd party is not an option. PERIOD.
Everyone who tries to tell me otherwise, they have to buy my nice Tokina paperweight first.


Is it the f2.6-f2.8 version or the constant f2.8?

If it's the first one send me some pics and I will seriously consider buying it (if it is marked pro II rather than pro SV and working to specification in good order etc) if it's the constant f2.8 / SV, you are probably right about it.
It's the constant f/2.8  :(

This thread title made me very angry - it's Canon fanboys like OP that drive the insane Canon glass prices up. 3rd party lenses can be just as good as Canon's at fraction of the cost. Don't blindly recommend Canon's glass against Sigma, Tamron, Tokina, Samyang etc. - they all have some outstanding products, while having to reverse-engineer the AF communication.

I was lucky to get rid of 2 Sigma lenses in part exchange in a shop.

EOS Bodies / Re: Pick between two options for the Canon 7D II
« on: June 28, 2013, 11:24:45 AM »
I don't like those options at all.

ISO 6400 is not really usable on 5D3, so on 7D2? Not gonna happen... I guess this comes down to the definition of "usable". My shooting style is to avoid high ISOs especially when it's dark.

Then the slow burst rate combined with the higher mega pickles... What's the point? Well, if it's a macro only camera then yeah, I'd go with this options just to get more room for additional cropping.


Megapickles? ROFL. Best typo ever.

Why do you say 5d3 not usable at 6400...there's been some truly awesome example online at even 12800 (or am i thinking the 6d?)

?
I've had no issues with my 5d mkIII shooting very usable images at iso 6400 and highter...

I like mega pickles too...but as to the best typo, go check the 70d spec topic...feature number 3!

the OP edited the typo out, but it is preserved via insert quote  ;D

My 2cents for 7D II:

1. 1D X AF system
2. 10fps
3. Solid body, similiar to 5D III
3. wife etc
4. ISO same as rumor 70D or a bit better
5. Sensor technology same as 1D X  or 5D III - crop size with Dual DIGIC 5+ Image Processors
6. More poweful battery

Wow, that's quite a feature...   ;D
Will this "feature" be the same in all continents or they will be variations depending whether the model is sold, like Japan, EU or USA?    ;D  ;D  ;D

(Just like Kiss/Rebel/ etc...)
Could be the new feature make cause some folks to order their new cameras as "grey market"...  :D
Or even get multiple bodies (for redundancy of course)  ;D
One should always have a backup body... or two...  ;D
Bought from a separate place (one grey market one through Canon representatives)  ;D

┬┐How about this?

20.2 CMOS
Dual Digic 5+
14 fps
Dual CF Cards
etc, etc, etc.
I like your specs but I believe not all are realistic.

20.2 CMOS YES
Dual Digic 5+  YES
14 fps NO 10fps probably (just like 7D fps rate was less than 1D4's)
Dual CF Cards NO either one or 1CF and 1SD (it will not equal 1DX)

Still, nice specs...

What type of toggle with this have?  Do you think it will go back to the joystick of the 50D and 5D MkIII?  Or will it be the pad in the 60D and 6D?
I bet the joystick will be there. It will have AF 19 points at least so omitting it would cripple the AF somehow...

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II Mentioned [CR1]
« on: June 28, 2013, 07:43:40 AM »
How many years is there a CR1 about a new: 35mm 1.4L and 100-400L  ::)

OK, it's a rumors site but still...

Landscape / Re: friendly reminder!!! Supermoon tomorrow!!!
« on: June 28, 2013, 07:30:31 AM »
Here is my Supermoon shot from the night of June 22nd. I used TPE to calculate where the moon was going to rise. What I didn't expect was just how FAST it rose. Seemed like it took 15/20 minutes to go from the horizon to an angle too high to shoot in relation to any buildings on the Brooklyn side. I only had a 70-200 on me, having a 1.4x or longer lens would have been very helpful in this situation.



Nice shot. I believe however - since the moon is extremely brighter than the bridge - that lowering the highlights to the minimum was not enough. Did you combine 2 different exposures (even from the same raw file)?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Medical joint overload by heavy dlsr?
« on: June 27, 2013, 08:32:36 AM »
Now that you uploaded the pictures I understand the need for APS-C/70-300L/flash/no tripod combination.
But, how about a gorilla pod or a big bean bag (at least for the subset of your pictures you take by crawling...)?

EOS Bodies / Re: Beginning of a new Canon starting with 7D Mk II?
« on: June 27, 2013, 08:27:09 AM »
Would like to see a 7d MK II with AF and metering functionality from the 5d MK 3, if they can do a sensor in the 24mp APS then this will be good and match against the Sony & Nikon as well along with a decent buffer and 8fps this will be a hit.
YES! And since it will be an APS-C model the same AF sensor would cover a lot more of the screen which would be yet another plus.

I think it will feel heavy no matter how you hold it.

Do you have a monopod with a small/light ballhead to rest your gear there maybe?
