Received the lens from Canon today and..........................

The paperwork states the following:

Your product has been examined and it was found that the adjustment of the AF assembly was incorrect causing inaccurate focus.  Electrical adjustments were carried out on the AF assembly.  Product functions were confirmed.


let us know how it turns out after Canon service

I took the 1Dx to the speedway last night.
I don't often shoot sport in low light but the 1Dx held my hand and helped me.
AWESOME shot Skulker. Love the action.

I was also looking forward to some colorful clown shots or something...

I agree that the OP was a bit out of line.  I think it was meant as harmless commentary but it is my hope that perhaps now in hindsight the boorish nature of it is more apparent.

I gotta say that when I go to swim meets for my son's school wearing two DSLRs, one with a 70-200 or 70-300 white lens and the other with a 24-105 so I can get shots faster and easier, I feel like a show-off pretentious clown that thinks he's some kind of pro photographer.  I imagine there are more than a few folks that have thought or snickered to themselves about 'that parent' that brings so much 'over-the-top' camera equipment just to shoot their son swimming.  (Of course, by now some probably know that I've done this for years and post pictures of several teams' swimmers for everyone to access free of charge.)  My point is that I often feel self conscious like I have too much in terms of gear most of the time.

OH, and count me together with JonAustin... [head spinning!]  The work infared did on his DIY Lighting rig is truly enlightened!!  I'm a tinkerer myself and based on the detailed description, it makes me want to build one like this just for the experience.  SUPER COOL!!   ;D

Be proud of what you have. If shooting with 2 bodies help you get more shots, I say, keep on shooting.

I'm now 100% shooting with 2 bodies at my kids activities. Keep in mind, we are there to photograph the event, not discussing camera gear. Save that topic for CR  ;)

"I guess I'm just looking for some encouragement to buy the 6D"

We here for you. DO IT, DO IT, DO IT ;D

6D will be great if you don't have a need adv AF. With true Auto ISO, you will enjoy shooting in M mode more. Throw in 40pancake, you will not miss A7r at all.

Cool Viggo

DON'T try this on your wife photos ;D

First, ask yourself why did you buy mirrorless camera over DSLR? I highly recommend staying with their native lenses - smaller, lighter, more balance and most important of all faster AF.

Otherwise, there is no true benefits carrying mirrorless with an adaptor and larger EF lenses.

<p>I’ve had at least zero people ask me when they can preorder the new $70,200.00 Canon CINE SERVO 50-1000mm T5.0-8.9 Ultra-telephoto Zoom lens. So for all of you, here it is!</p>

I'm going to wait for $200 rebate 8)

I used CPW-street price twice. Both transactions were successful through Canon US authorized dealer. Came with Canon 1yr standard warranty. I would use CPW-street price AGAIN ;)



I rather pay $150ish more just to ensure my purchases are NEW and from legit dealer. How often do we hear BVI selling new 6D & 5D III, but came with missing accessories... ::)

Now that DPR has upgraded their review, some of the things are falling into place. 
One of the strong points is the much better lens on the G7X, sharper with fewer CA's.  For jpeg images, Sony has a lot more sharpening, and apparently does some in camera CA removal as well.
Check out the DPR test image setup, and compare raw images, they are very close except for the Sony CA at the edges.
AF speed is a weak point for the G7X.  It would be enough for me to drop it from consideration.  I'd already dropped the RX100 MK III due to its short zoom range. 
It does appear that someone wanting a tiny camera will have to determine which features he values most, because no camera has them all.
With all things being relatively close, I'd go for the faster AF speed, but there are just too many features that may appeal to users on one camera or the other.
+1...In addition to AF speed, I like the idea of having EVF for afternoon shooting.

I still like my 5D III + 40pancake. Still, it's nice to have a pocketable camera for an afternoon walk sometimes.

I have used the camera since friday. It is inconsistent in af accuracy. Most pictures are soft. When all hits then the pics are great but for a $700 convience camera it shoukd work better than that. I would like to consider the rx100 but do not like the short focal range and handling. I think the extra bulk and IQ would be better invested in the sony a6000 for the money. At least your carrying apsc sized sensor and hopefully the af can keep up.

I got my eyes locked on RX100 III as well  ;)
