Lenses / Re: When is the New 100-400 Coming?
« on: May 16, 2013, 10:15:22 AM »
if you have sources to tell you that there are prototypes.

why donĀ“t they tell you at least if it is a push-pull design or not?

or is a push-pull design tested and a "normal" design?

Lenses / Re: Who has pre-ordered or will order 200-400

See now I have a dilemma...I have been saving my money to purchase the 400mm 2.8 for the past couple of years and I'm about $1500 off from paying straight cash for it. I am planning to have it by the time fall rolls around for some high school football action. Now with this lens finally becoming a reality I wonder should I just go ahead go for this or just go ahead and pull the trigger on the 400 since I've been saving for it for so long...

Decisions, decisions...
Unless you will need less than 400mm I cannot see why you must change plans.

400 2.8 L IS II weighs the same as the 200-400 and is one stop better...

Am wondering what gear we all want that is not being manufactured yet but we wish it were.

I start:
A focusing screen (for cameras that accept interchangeable screens eg 1dx and 5d2) with proper split screen focusing aid. This will help me use Zeiss lenses better and focus manually Canon lenses in low light etc.
And, if I could: 24-105 f2.8 IS with good corner sharpness. This will be my ultimate travel lens.

Thank you.
This may not quite impossible judging from Tamron's AF 28-105MM F/2.8 LD Aspherical (IF)

Too expensive, too heavy, too short. But then I am not a pro so its just an amateur's opinion.

Still, the 500mm f/4 IS II is very tempting even for an amateur...  :)  :)  :)

If you shooting with FF, it is almost a no brainer to take 24-70 II over 3 non-L primes

My mini-review of this lens.


+1 Nice practical review.  It was a very good idea to compare the lenses with similar framing. That way the DOF difference is obvious.

Just a simple question: How many Canon lenses have suffered fluorite element fracture in the field?

I guess there are professional on this forum to enlighten us...

Since I have a CANON system I would get SL1 (the same reason other posters said).

I would just like to compare it (size-wise) with 18-55 and with 18-135 and 15-85.



The 2 links refer to SuperWASP (W.A.S.P. = Wide Angle Search for Planets) an  extra-solar planet detection program.

They use an array of EF200mm 1.8L   Canon lenses.

So even if Canon lenses are not taken to space they are used in space projects!

First, there has to be an EF14-24 !!!

if there was one... why should i ask how LIKELY.. ?   ::)

how likely is it

You did not say how likely it is to be an EF14-24 you said

"how likely is it that a EF 14-24mm can be used with screw on filters"

There is a slight (er big I mean) difference...

What a pity, it seems I will not be able to take my Canon tele lenses on my next space mission! Oh wait! I have nothing to do with space missions...  :o

I can enjoy however my Canon lenses on earth  ;D

EOS Bodies / Re: Buy 1DX now or wait for an upgrade?
« on: May 05, 2013, 01:30:55 PM »
Upgrade will be announced by late October and will ship by January. I'm also waiting.

I know many will disagree but look up the product cycles and dates of the announcement and shipments of both the 1D and 1Ds.

You're going to be really disappointed in October and especially in January.
Well, he didn't mention the year, did he?    ;D

I someone wants the best who are we to discourage them?

Canon could use the money to improve their R&D department...   ::)
