By the way it will be my first ... cap picture

Keep in mind that the 400 2.8 version I is VERY heavy!The slightly older US date code that was in impeccable condition.
I too thinking about 400 f2.8 IS version I. Would be nice to have version II, but the price tag is little too high for me.
Or to put it another way, the noise characteristics of the 70D should be about that for a 40MP APS-C sensor using the same sensor technology without the PDAF split.But then the two parts are combined to one pixel so it isn't it a kind of pixel binning?
Hey not Nikon trolls at all here (I do not have anything Nikon - not even a PS)$100 off...soon will drop to $1500;)
The price in the picture is the kit price with lens, and even that changed to the latest [cr] - obviously Canon lowered the price in the meantime to counter Nikon...
.... but the pre-order price is released and THE RESULTS ARE IN (this is also in the first post):
25% of you were correct
12% guessed too low
63% guessed too high - don't you Nikon trolls trust our favorite brand to be reasonable :-p ?
Now, that was the worst thing to say. Everyone will wait for that camera and will not buy 70D at all19 AF points and a D-pad. To whomever said it would need a joystick, sorry...told ya!
Joystick will be in 7D II with 1D X or 5D III 61points AF system - 10fps
Well, that ought to DRum up some DRead from the DRoll DRones who DRool over DR, and DRag many a forum thread down the DReary path of DRivel, DRaining into puddles of DRoss.DRoolific sentence
Loctite Blue 242 is 'semipermanent' - a good hard pull with a long-handled hex key and the screws will come out. But they won't work loose on their own. Loctite has other products with a much stronger 'permanent' bond.Once more 100% precise. Thanks
RRS doesn't use distributors - you buy direct from them. They do ship internationally.
I owned both 1.4x and 2x extenders V.II for use on my 500/4 V.1 and 300/2.8 V.1 and when they V.III extenders were released, I upgraded both.It is worth. I have always been satisfied with my EF1.4X II but until recently the only use of EF2X II that was really worth was back in 2006 when I had used my 300mm f/4L (non-IS) with that 2X teleconverter and photographed the total eclipse.
I didn't really see any noticeable difference with the new 1.4x (perhaps just a tad in the corners) but I did find a noticeable improvement with the 2x on both lenses. Across the entire frame. I rarely used the V.II 2x because I was never really happy with the results. Now I use the V.III 2x all the time and am very happy with the IQ it delivers with both my 1D Mark IV and my 5D Mark III bodies.
If I had it to do again, I would not bother to upgrade the 1.4x extender for my use.
Just my personal experience, for what it's worth.
