Lenses / Re: Lots of New Lenses Coming in 2014 [CR2]
« on: November 10, 2013, 12:27:16 PM »
OK, I might have to update my lenses but still allow me to ... order:

a 400mm 5.6L IS with at least the same quality and AF speed
a 16-35mm 2.8L III (Please better corners and less coma)
a super quality 100-400 4.5-5.6L IS II
a 14-24 f/2.8L for people who need this and have the absurd idea that a 16-35 2.8 is not necessary
a 35mm 1.4L II (OK I will have to upgrade mine but I will accept one with NO coma)
a 135mm f/2L IS (same as before I will have to upgrade mine but IS in 135mm is so useful... )
a 600mm f/5.6 DO with L lens quality (I don't say that I will be able to afford it though and since it will be a 600mm/4L IS II ... almost killer it will most probably won't happer)

So I am ...  fine with 7 lenses! See I left one more for spare ...  ;D  ;D  ;D

On second thought:  24-105 f/4L IS II that will improve a very nice otherwise lens (so at to make it a 24-70 2.8 II killer - OK it won't happen most probably)

@Marsu42: hello,

we are both at CR and Magiclantern forums but I feel this it is appropriate to ask here:

Does 6D ML  support fully uninstall (unlike 5D3) ?

card writing speed faster (UDMA)
I can accept everything else but I seriously doubt this one.

5D3 supports UDMA 7 and can be really fast at card writing (albeit only when writing at Compact Flash).

Against all "hope": A DF-ish FF, 1Dx sensor, 5D3 AF, no video, native ISO 51200, extension H1 and H2. A stills only body for Christmas... 8) Just to keep up with the Joneses. US $ 2.8k (as Canon will ask a bit more)
I think you will be SLIGHTLY disappointed  ::)

Besides, he's taken his fight to DPR:  http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52443217

Well spotted, that is hilarious.

But what is even more funny is that if you read the replies on his thread he got no sympathy at all from the dpreview crowd !  ;D
So no respect for the president ?   :o  :o  :o

Haven't you seen his signature?

by the way.... canon has just released new software updates.

has someone looked for hints?
sometimes you can find hints about new cameras when you inspect the code.
I do not want to disappoint you but Canon did something strange at least as the USA site.
They claim to have newer updates but the release numbers correspond to older versions!

I do have these releases (DPP, EOS Utility, Digital Solution disk) since September.
Now why they have done this eludes me...

If it does not start with a 5, 6, or 7 I will be very disappointed...
Me too although we can pretty sure it will not start with 5 or 6... yet!

I do not think a new rebel is worth the teaser.

Unfortunately I admit it looks very much like a rebel  >:(

Lenses / Re: 24-70 II with IS
« on: November 07, 2013, 09:21:39 PM »
I believe Canon issued the non-I.S. first because it wouldn't sell...later
when the one with I.S. was available

I'm really hoping this is the case.  I've been thinking about trading in my fairly new 24-105 5D3 kit lens towards a 24-70 II, but considering the hit I'll take on the trade-in, I feel compelled to keep using it in the hopes that a 24-70 II with IS is in the nearish future.  The "ish" after "near" is a concern though.
I wouldn't worry. It will take less that 10 years... probably  ;D

Where is Terje the one post wonder? ... I'm betting that Terje is "he who must not be named" of this forum ;D

If I did take that bet, the only question left would be, "How much do I owe you?"
;D ;D ;D
;D ;D ;D ;D ... but its amazing that people like Terje specifically target a member with their very first post ... I mean do people like Treje think we are that dumb that we don't even know that "------" is same as " -----"?
Still they get to live in a very nice - albeit cold - country...  ;D

Lenses / Re: 24-70 II with IS
« on: October 24, 2013, 08:31:38 AM »
When the 70-200 f/2.8 L came out the non IS version was sharper than the IS version.  I would suspect this will always be true no matter what focal length.
I am with you on that ... partially!

Canon introduced the 70-200 f/2.8 IS II which corrected this!

However, it has done this by almost doubling the cost (compared to the non-IS lens)

By the way the 70-200 2.8 L (which I used to have until it was stolen) was the first zoom I used with fixed lens quality (judging from large B&W prints back in the 90s).

For now, your comment applies to the 300mm f/4 series lenses too.

The f/4 non-IS lens is reported sharper than the IS version. Although I do not have the IS version
I have compared 300mm f/4L non-IS lens with EF1.4XII extender and found it sharper that the 100-400 L lens. This implies a very sharp 300mm f/4L non-IS lens. Now, if Canon introduce a 300mm f/4L IS II things will change again...

Lenses / Re: Which TS lens is better
« on: October 22, 2013, 07:23:46 PM »
As others stated, you should decide based on focal length only.  Personally, I picked the TS-E 24L II as my preferred focal length, after spending some time shooting my intended TS-E subjects with at both 17mm and 24mm (testing was actually done with the 7D + 10-22mm; I bought the 16-35L II and sold the 10-22mm about a month after getting the TS-E 24L II). 

I bought the 17mm TSE II (incredible) Lens first...based on the fact that (much to my surprise), I could use my Canon 1.4X III to increase the focal length of the 17mm to 24mm and get as-good (OR BETTER !), IQ as the 24mm TSE.
Better?  If you're referring to the original TS-E 24L, maybe - but the TS-E 24L II is sharper than the bare TS-E 17mm, and decidedly sharper than the 17 + 1.4x (very obvious in the TDP crop comparison).
I was talking mostly about functionality. You can crop a little but cannot always go backwards.

Sorry - your statement about image quality suggested otherwise…
I am sorry I answered to the wrong post!
