Reviews / Re: 5D3 shooting my cat at ISO 51k at 6:30 a.m.

You know, the 5D3 has its place in the bag next to my bed. Others have books on their bedside table. My 5D sits next to it in its bag, always eager to explore the available light  8)
Well, you just have to clarify: Is the camera bag closed, semi-open or open ?  ;D

Pretty impressive, as are your other night shots.

Does this mean you sleep with your 5D as well as the cat ?  ;D

@Sporgon: LOL. No, the cat sneaks in every morning. Attached to the bedroom there is a balcony where it normally sleeps in its "nest". So, my wife let it in...The room although slightly enlighted was still very dark. I could hardly see the cat... But the 5D did 8) I am amazed by these shots. Even the one w/o NR looks usable. I appreciate your comments related to my nightphotography. Cheers, Pedro.

To the other fellow posters: Thanks for contributing!
Still it is obvious that you sleep with your camera  ;D

I also dropped my 70-200 2.8 ISii. I ran it through focal today and it used to have a adjustment of -2 and now it is at -1.
There is a CR0 that if you drop it one more time the adjustment will go to from -1 to zero!  ;D  ;D
But I wouldn't try it  ::)

Yes and it will be $6000
Or 60000  ;D

Now you might be right, but a couple of low-resolution images on flickr are unable to show the technical merits of the lens (I like the photos though) because nearly everything looks sharp down-sized so much...
+1 We need 100% magnification for this. A screenshot from a corner of a 100% enlarged image could do I guess...

Just an addition:

My EF300mm f/4L (NON-IS) + EF 1.4X II is sharper than my 100-400 f/5.6L

But that's the very old EF300mm f/4L NON-IS which is out of the equation...

According to http://www.the-digital-picture.com

EF400mm f/5.6L > EF300mm F/4L IS + EF1.4X III

EF400mm f/5.6L > ΕF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L

Center fully open:
ΕF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L > EF300mm F/4L IS + EF1.4X III

Edges, Corners fully open
ΕF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L < EF300mm F/4L IS + EF1.4X III

This is a rumors site. That does not exclude negative rumors. So I say ... NO!

OK I have no inside information but it the most logical. 16-35mm f/2.8 lenses have the same diameter more or less with 24-70mm f/2.8 L lenses.
And we all know how many 24-70 2.8 L IS  lenses exist  ;D  ;D  ;D

These desert islands much have an endless supply of batteries and AC power for all the walkman's and cameras folks have theorized about in the past.

You use it for 3 years as is, then you sell it and get 5DMkIV. Problem solved  8)

Lenses / Re: Educate me about why 70mm <> 70mm...
« on: January 05, 2013, 02:14:18 PM »
They cheat ... a little.

Canon's 100-400 at 400mm is reported to have less magnification than fixed focal length EF400mm f/5.6L.

The reported focal length is 360 to 370mm. So it is about 10% less!

10% less at 70mm means 63mm (I guess this is worst case).

All the same the 16-35mm f/2.8L (version I) is reported to be wider that 16-35mm f/2.8L II.

Maybe I should write an article for the site on TS-E use as few people seem to know how to get the best out of these extraordinary lenses

+1 (actually + 1000000)  When it is done not when it is simply announced  ::)

Calling it the Canon 1Ds mk IV makes more sense to me than calling it the Canon 3D
Or 1Ds X

and my workhorse 70-200 2.8 (I never ever leave home without that.)
OP said: Traveling light is a priority so can't really take a big tele and to be honest I don't really shoot over 100mm that often(not yet anyway).
