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

Canon EF Prime Lenses / Re: Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM

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 !!!

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...

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

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

I tried my 24-105 yesterday on my 5D3 and I noticed that IS was noisier than when it was on my 5D2! But even on 5D2 it was noisier than what it used to be a few months ago  :-\

It's time to get 24-70 mrk II ;D
And that way I will have no ... IS noise problems  ;D

Having said nice things about my 24-105, I tried it today on my 5D3 and I noticed that IS was noisier than when it was on my 5D2! But even on 5D2 it was noisier than it used to be   :-\
