What does this issue mean for the camera's weather sealing?

Try to aim the flash light through clear plastic drinking bottle with the cap on ;)

My 5D III came from the 1st patch of production - what "light leak" issue?

And now Dylan a tough question. Actually a very tough one: Does your wife know? Does she even  know about this poll?  ;D ;D ;D

If the size and color is same as my 400mm f2.8 IS II, she couldn't tell the diff. That why I ruled out Tamron ;D

That is truly very Funny, deceitfully crafty, and smart.
Nice opportunity to blackmail him for a 10% commission or we rat on him to his wife. ;D

Rienz, I just removed you from my "buddy list" >:(.........Just kidding ;D
By the way, I was seriously considering blackmail for 10% commission, but since you have not removed me from your buddy list, I think I should also be nice and reduce my commission to only 7% of the lens price  ;D

Your G.A.S is not any better than mine. Are you sure you want to do that? ;D ;D ;D

OFF TOPIC:
I'm heading to China this weekend. My co-workers and I will visit Guilin, the mountain range in the weekend there. I'll pack 5D III(x2) and 24-70 II + 70-200 f2.8 IS II with 1.4x TC III.

Can't even take my A7r with me, since I have no decent UWA for this system >:(
;D ;D ;D
I thought you bought the Sony 10-18mm UWA lens, I know it had some funky color issues to the left edges of the frame, but I thought the image itself quite decent, wouldn't that lens do the job for your trip?

By the way, speaking of GAS, I ordered two white lens hoods (for my 70-200 f/2.8 L IS II & 100-400 f/4-5.6 L IS lenses), they should be arriving before next Monday ... so I can pretend that my 100-400 L IS is a 200-400 L lens ;D ... and here is the screen shot of the order

I returned the Sony to BH. Besides the funny looking colors, the IQ doesn't look right(that just me of course).

Are you having fun with 70d + 100-400?  :) Any photos want to share?

For me, it will be hard to go back to crop. I do miss 1.6x factor sometimes ;)

Honestly for guilin forget long glass,
I took a 70-200 and 2x tc there, i used the 70-200 bare for the night performance in yangshuo but very little otherwise
tried it with the 2x tc from the boats but its just not long enough, 90% of my shots were 16-35 f2.8L II and a few 50mm f1.4

i'm back in shanghai this weekend and the surrounding area next week but epicly busy with work. might try go take some pics on the weekend maybe do some night stuff.

edit: just checked your gear if i were you get the 14mm samyang take your 24-70 and the 135L and done forget everything else.

Thanks for your advice.

I have decided to go with 5D III(x2):
Day time: 16-35 II(landscape, f8 - f16) + 70-200 f2.8 IS II with 1.4x TC III(interesting objects & people portrait f5.6 to f8)

Night time: 24-70 II + 70-200 f2.8 IS II (since both of these lenses are sharp wide open)

So basically ... no, I'm not considering the A7R any longer.  8)

For me...I'll stand by for Zeiss FE UWA for my A7R ;)

It small to carry around and produces HIGH quality images.

For Guilin, you definitely want an UWA.  I would take either my 16-35 or my 17 TSE. If you take one of the boat rides, you will miss many shots without an UWA. 

Make sure your dishes and cutlery on the boat are clean too.

Thanks KitsVancouver for the info.

renting an UWA is my best option at this time ;)

Lol....lucky you...keep her close and let her know how much you cherish her...every day. Mine left me 2 years ago and is in the process of Divorcing me. The cool thing is that now I can spend my money on what I like...but I'd rather have her company than not, even after the hell she's put me and my family through over the last 2 years.

I'll keep your advice GMCPhotographics ;)

One of my co-workers went through this situation last year. It wasn't easy process for him. I'm trying to cut down my traveling as well. The wife wasn't happy lately, since we now have 2 kids 3& 5yrs. Believe it or not, this is my 2nd times to China in 2014. I still have at least 3 more trips coming ???

Your situation, I hope everything will go well for both parties.

Tron, it sounds like a plan :)

I did have a thought about renting 16-35 II or maybe 14mm II. It only cost $150 for 2 weeks ::)
DON'T RENT IT. BUY IT! Feel some temporary G.A.S relief and save the 150$. You are going to buy it anyway. We all know that. Resistance is futile :) :) :) :)

I'll stay humble this time and put that $1300 toward to 600mmish lens ;)

Thanks for your thoughts guys. The poll shows 50/50, interesting.

Interesting, the poll still showing 50/50 between these two. And of course, the Tamron option ::)

Zoomy has upper hand now, interesting ::)

Maybe, but then again his wife my well be on the pradarumors.com and lvrumors.com sites chatting to her friends about the latest Louis Vuitton. She may be saying, "he thinks I do not know, but he has his eyes on this stupid lens he'll hardly ever use anyway. I hope he gets it, as I have had my eyes on the latest LV shoe and bag set for a while now. Those and a nice 2 carat gem. He won't even know, they all look the same to him!!!"

 :o
LOL..... ;D

1. Happy wife = happy me
2. Happy me = more L lenses. My need list is done. My want list is never end...

Win win situation here ;)
