<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)

Those JPEGs look really good in high ISO.

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  ;)

I really like the "gritty reality" feel to this shot.

With 70-200mm f2.8 IS II. Calico Ghost Town in California, some old and rusty tools.

Thanks Skulker

Great photos and very nice colors. Did you use a preset or 'played' with the coloring yourself?

Thanks candyman.

I used preset from vsco as a baseline and some adjustments to my taste.

I was using my 70-200mm today for softball... it would have been tough to limit myself to only 200mm... so I think I may be keeping the lens even if I do elect to upgrade to the 200 f2...

My 6yrs got picked as top five swimmers in her class. She will be competing tomorrow with other teams. Can't wait to shoot with my 1DX. The 400mm will be mounted on 5D III this time. Wish I have another 1DX... ::)

Finally, I got a chance playing with this lens for about 4hrs. Took over 700 photos with 1DX. My final verdict is this lens going to stay in my bag.

In Ai servo, keeper rate is little less compared to f2.8 - 70-200 f2.8 and 400mm f2.8. However, IQ on the keepers is AWESOME. Let me say that again.....FREAKEN AWESOME ;D

Today I was shooting more softball, and in the 2nd game, I got into a fight with the umpire regarding a quick pitch (pitch is thrown before the batter is ready), and he was being petty and removed me from hugging the fence on the side of the field... so that went well... Damn umpires.

LOL.... ;D

I'm a bit more lucky than you JD. Since I share photos with the coach and other parents, he gave me decent spot = great view. With 200mm & 400mm on hands, getting the shots weren't that difficult.

I saw other teams came with their own photographers. Many of them were black/gold.

My 70-200 is my most used and most loved lens.  I bought a 200mm f1.8 a little over a year ago.  Touched the paint up and sold it for $300 more than I paid.  It was interesting, but I never felt like it was a replacement for my 70-200.

With excellent IQ, fast AF speed, and zoom range 70-200 it will be hard to replace the current version. Here is another shot with 70-200 f2.8 IS II with 1DX, able to frame the shot.

My plan was to sell the 70-200mm f2.8 IS II, after 200mm f2 IS arrived. Posted it on ebay last night, however, I ended my auction today. Just couldn’t do it guys.

Dam you L lenses
I don't blame you!!! :) :) :) The 200 f2??? :) :) :) : You're shooting with class!!! :) :) :) early Christmas present? Congrats!!!
Didn't you pick up a 600 not too long ago Dylan???

Not yet. Still shooting with 400mm. My 6yrs + 3yrs will join junior golf team early Feb. If thing works out for them, 600mm sounds very temping  ;)
