EOS Bodies / Re: "Two New FF Bodies in 2014" - if 5DM4, would you jump in?
« on: November 29, 2013, 06:09:50 PM »
I know that if they actually rolled out the 5DM4, I'd be very interested in it.  However, if you own a 5DM3 and have realized how amazing this camera truly is, what would it take to make you grab one immediately?

I'm so happy with my 5DM3 that I truly can't wrap my brain around what they'd have to put into a mark IV to make a guy like me jump in.

Thoughts?
1. One full stop better in high iso
2. 8-10 fps regardless battery levels
3. More dual cross type AF points
I know I'm dreaming here...

Ok...getting back to real world now. We might see extra features like wifi, gps, 1/3 stop better,  7fps and the price will be @ mid $4000.

I will follow RLPhoto footsteps this time. ..bvi deals :))

Dylan, We are now waiting for images!!!

Will celebrate Thanksgiving with family and friends today.

I live in Orange County, CA(92708, 30mins south of LAX). I have no experience in wildlife, Never been out there on the REAL field. So, I'm not sure what to expect. To be safe, will start with local zoo tomorrow ;D

Will post some pics. Happy Thanksgiving Eldar :)

I was so looking forward to test out my lens at local zoo. I got 3 batteries fully charged from last night. This morning, the wife went to work and the kids went to grandma for 4-5hrs, perfect time to test the lens right? Nahhhhh.....RAIN-RAIN and MORE RAIN in California :( :( :( :( :( :( :(
From what I have learned, "It never rains in California ...", but then, Murphy never takes a vacation ;)

 ;D

This will be perfect pair for the zoo

Third Party Manufacturers / Leica CEO: DSLR might not be alive next 10yrs

I better enjoy my recent purchase Canon 300mm f2.8 IS II before my DSLR dies ;D

I'm not sure how they going to make 24-70 f2.8, 85mm f1.4, 135mm f2, 70-200 f2.8, 300mm f2.8 list goes on...small enough to go with mirrorless body.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Question sir , EOS-M or EOS SL-1
« on: November 29, 2013, 10:05:21 AM »
This is a perfect case to look at Fuji X-series.

I'm currently shooting with Fuji X100s, best IQ in crop, fastest AF, and awesome compact retro body style. Couldn't ask for more, except 35mm sensor.

correction: fastest AF in mirrorless world

EOS-M / Re: Continuous shooting on EOS-M + EFS lens?
« on: November 29, 2013, 01:13:08 AM »
So I'm thinking of getting the EF 85mm 1.8 lens with the Canon adapter for shooting bike racing with my EF-M. Per the manual, there's a "sports" mode that focuses and shoots continuously, which is great since there are only a few seconds as the racers zip past, and of course each shot needs to be refocused. However, another part of the manual states "When an EF-M lens is used Servo AF will be used to focus; if an EF or EF-S lens is used, focus lock will be used instead." Which also would explain why EF-M lenses shoot 1.2 or 1.7 fps and EF and EF-S lenses shoot at 4.3 fps. So, if I understand correctly, I can't continuously shoot (and focus) unless I use a EF-M lens, and there are no telephoto lenses for the M. If so, this is very frustrating! Am I missing something??

Please tell me the OP is joking ???

Even with Fuji x100s(fastest AF in mirrorless world), you can get ONE shot in focus. Anything else after 1st shot is out of focus.

Good luck with focusing when the subject running toward you

EOS Bodies / Re: POLL: The 2nd ff camera in 2014 will be...
« on: November 29, 2013, 12:42:25 AM »
I don't understand this poll, since both cameras are less than 2yrs old.

2014 might be high MP FF and/or 7D II as super crop

I found the pre-announcement teaser videos very enticing.  But as soon as I saw a picture of the real thing, my interest dropped to zero.  I do not know who would buy that camera at that price.

+1

Fuji seems to be on the right track with retro design.  Can't wait for ff x series.
Df is too bulky with too many buttons.

Lenses / Re: Next purchase 300mm f/2.8 L II - should I sell the 100-400?
« on: November 28, 2013, 10:06:47 AM »
I'm planning to get the 300mm f/2.8 L II next and have saved up for the most part. I'm confused whether I would need the 100-400 after I do get the 300. That said, should I sell the 100-400, I might just be able to give myself an early Christmas present or else I have to wait a few months.

All you guys who have used the 300, have you needed the 100-400 after getting the 300 f/2.8 L II? If so, why?

They differ in portability, so the question is how would would you get close to a portable solution to 400mm.  A couple possible options are

1.  selling your 70-200 f/4 and your 100-400 for a 70-300L, which is compact and portable but you lose some range.2.  selling your 70-200 f/4 and your 100-400 and using a 2x III with your 70-200L, but this is a heavier, bulkier solution.

-1...sell both lenses and use the money for 300mm + 1.4x and/or 2x TC III. OP already have 70-200 f2.8 IS II, there is no point getting 70-300.

Looking at OP signature:
1. 24-70 II
2. 70-200mm f2.8 IS II
3. 135L
4. 300mm f2.8 IS II

This combo looks MUCH better, not to mention, BEST OF THE lenses here

EOS Bodies / Re: Two New Full Frame Cameras in 2014? [CR1]
« on: November 28, 2013, 09:39:26 AM »
To get me upgrade to 5D Mark IV, Canon needs to have these:

1. One full stop better in high ISO
2. 8-10 fps (even when the battery at 3/4 or half left)
3. Tries not to sell @ $4000 from beginning, then, drops to $2500 few months later

That last point was completely avoidable, If you bought from BVI. :)
