Can't you just put it into a 5Dmk3 with the latest firmware?the newer non-genuine's are decoded, fully compatible no communication errors
If it's not genuine, the camera will flag it out.
I have 2 batteries that has all the Canon logos on it and look identical to the original, but when i loaded them into the camera, it says unable to communicate with the battery so i know they're fake..
Deal like this make me sad and make Canon Australia look like an absolute joke.
The MkII focuses slowly. The original focuses much more sloooowwwwwly.
First I confess I don't do much landscape, certainly not a primary for me though I do like to capture a good scene when possible.
When I do landscape I am always wanting a wider lens than my 17mm on 7D, equivalent to 27.2mm FF. As you have this as your special landscape kit how do you cope with 28mm when landscape is about the only thing you cannot take a step back to compensate for lack of width?
Not criticising, just curious!

You tend to want to include too much and come up with weak compositions. Sure, there are times it is the only option for a dramatic shot, but, on my last trip, I found myself shooting in the 17-30mm range a lot more than 11-16. Heck, my 3rd and 4th best shots were at 85mm and 200mm.
Doesn't say where he shoots, but, if I was anywhere near mountains, that 28-300 combo would be perfect for variety. Plus, you can always stitch together a few shots at 28mm to create 20mm. Big advantage to no lens changes as well, if you are in the rain, wind, snow, dust, etc.
i have the canon 15mm fisheye picked it up used on ebay for $650 a couple of weeks ago. i have used the 8-15L my photo buddy has one and i was going to get one my self but, i couldn't part with the price of entry for the L zoom just to expensive for a specialized lens for occasional use so i went for the alternative, wonderful lens, sharp at f/2.8, fun to use and reasonably cheap, recommended
So....can you borrow your bud's Zoom and give us a side-by-side at 15mm f/4 with a 100% crop for comparison???!!!!???!!!!?
Actually ...I don't really need it...I am very happy with my Canon 15mm f/2.8..paid same price as you..bought it new just as the 8-15mm zoom hit the market. Its a cool lens, and perfect for "my" needs!!!!!
