Lenses / Re: Sigma 50mm F/1.4 Art listed in Belarus for $790

I doubt this lens be made in Japan. It's more likely be made in China.

We all know the labor cost in China ;)

If you really think that, you don't know Sigma!

Indeed I don' I really need to know Sigma when my lenses are L? :P

If you take $790 and consider what that must pay for, it becomes a bit difficult to believe that this lens can compete with the Otus in any way.

(If memory serves me right) 10 lens elements, of which 3 are SLD and one aspherical, a fast reliable AF system, housing, hoods and caps and casing and profit ... I fail to see how it is possible to produce a high quality product, with tolerances to compete with L-series, Otus and others, for that money, no matter how efficient you are or how cheap your labor is.

I'd be delighted if they prove me wrong. That would make this lens a significant game changer!

I'm not a big fan of eos-m, but it's the best value for crop mirrorless body. I mainly use this camera at work. Photograph electronic components etc...

Shouldn't be more than $899.  In fact, I'd probably still buy the Tamron for $1,299 even if the Canon were $899.
It needs IS and thus this one needs to be discontinued.

-1....if I have to do it again, I will buy the Canon II over the Tammy

Not sure what there's left to improve besides weight to be honest.

The biggest improvement over the MKI was the much improved MFD and updated IS imo, but either version shoots wide open all day long leaving folks more than happy with the results.

By coincidence I'll be there the following week on vacation, organised as a mystery tour by Chinese friends after official visits to Hong Kong and Shanghai.  I had intended to take the 5DIII plus Tamron 150-600 for nature and 24-105 for general.

 I have been trying to persuade my wife to take the 70D with the 15-85 as it could provide a back-up body and I could omit the 24-105 and we would have two cameras ready all the time.  However, she wants something small for her handbag.  She needs something without any buttons, mode dials etc that can be pressed by mistake and set off the self- timer etc. Anything foolproof to recommend (apart from iPhones etc)?

Feel like home(in US) when I log on to CR site...still seing all buddies chatting :)

I'm staying at Pullman Dongguan Forum, in Dong Cheng District. Here is from the balcony at Pullman

Thanks guys ;)

24-70 f2.8 II for now, until f2.8 IS releases

On top of that, another MUST have lens is 70-200 f2.8 IS II.

Lenses / Visit Guilin, Mountain Range, in China - Lens selection

Hi guys,
My co-workers and I will visit Guilin, China. From March 21th to 23rd.

I'm packing these. What do you think? Too much? too little?


having sold my 5D2 I bought a 5D3. I made some tests to check it but due to bad weather and work I did not have the chance to use it. So now I tried to test it again.

It works fine but I noticed 2 things:

1. There is a infinitessimally small dot on the glass of the back LCD. It is just a dot
and can be seen only when the LCD is off.

I mentioned it and I was offered an exchange.

However, since I will have to pay the courier I guess it will cost (with insurance) more than 50 euros.

Any suggestions? (since it is very very small and can be seen only when LCD is off)

2. The image counter seemed a little over 500 while I had shot less than 10. But I do not
remember whether  I had formated the CF I put in the camera before using it.

Could this be the cause?

They claimed that this is the cause.

If you bought the camera as NEW from authourized dealer, then you should demand the dealer to take the return/exchange at no cost. You think the 500shots came from Canon? or from returned customer?

Sonalpharumors reports the following rumor with a SR5 rating (i.e. "almost certainly correct!")

(SR5) New Full Frame E-mount cameras to be launched within the next 5-6 months (likely at Photokina).
I can confirm via multiple trusted sources that Sony will launch new Full Frame E-mount cameras within the next 5-6 months. I guess it means they will be launched right before the Photokina September show. NONE(!) of them will be a replacement of the current A7 and A7r models. All we know for sure about these new models is that they will have an advanced hybrid AF system similar to what we got inside the newly announced Sony A6000.

The surprises: I can already tell you that there will be many more cameras in the months to come (RX and Alpha and E-mount). I am working on those rumors right now….be patient ;)

That is a very interesting development, coz the a6000 auto focus system has received a lot of praise from pretty much every photographer who got their hands on it ... and from what I've seen on youtube videos, it does seem to be awesome ... and to have it on a full frame camera (which might be priced modestly) is even more awesome ... exciting times.

Feel like my G.A.S just kicked in ;D

The Sonalpharumors guy will be working overtimes on all new interesting rumor cameras.

Now, I understand why we have all the sales going on lately. Hope they will have an UWA FE e-mount by then ::)

Was wondering how often fellow CR members visit this forum.

Unfortunately, I'm 'Option 5' - It could be from my smart phone, tablet, laptop or the pc! I suppose I just want to stay up to date with all things Canon.

Can you add another option for 20+ ;D

Are you having fun with 70d + 100-400?  :) Any photos want to share?
Yes very much ... its a nice combo and when I receive the white lens hood, I'll pretend its a 200-400 L IS lens  ;D ... here are a few pics from last Thursday (all the images are cropped to death)

I really like 2nd and 3rd photo ;)
