Canon 200mm L f2.8 II, similar to 135L in term of weight & size. This lens is sharp and the price is great.

I do not know why so many people hate this lens... I love it! I don't care what Sigma or what ever present, that 1.2L Glas is so damn lovely! <3
Shot on a 5D Lr + Ps for Skin. (all at 1.2, except the last one at 1.4)

Quote from: Dylan777 link=topic=20652.msg390479#msg390479It means compact FF mirrorless with fast AF + decent pancake lenses...
S___.. must be asia only.
they get all the good stuff like the new EOS M2.....
QuoteChief Financial Officer Toshizo Tanaka told an earnings briefing that sales of pricier compact cameras had actually increased after Canon adjusted its camera production and line-up in the first quarter to meet customers’ demand for more sophisticated products
what does that mean?
to me it looks like canon has done nothing different then the past years.
new powershots, same old minimal rebel updates, a 60D update called 70D.
what has canon adjusted?
are the P&S really are more sophisticated or has canon released the 7D MK2 and nobody told me?
or is he talking about the EOS M?
Coming from a 5DIII, I'm having some issues with my 1D X. Some of them might just be my ignorance, but others are just frustrating me. And a few just seem impossible to solve.
First of all, it took me 3 or 4 days to figure out that the rubber plug was not the battery. After removing that, I was able to get the battery into the camera. After another week of experimenting, I realized that Canon has moved the power switch back to where it was on my 5DII. That seems so backwards from a supposedly innovative company. After that, I ran into the following:
1. My camera is missing the mode dial
2. I'm scaring people and filling up my memory card because each time I push the shutter it goes really fast3. Related to #2, my flash tried to keep up but ended up burning out
4. It's missing the pop-up flash, just like my 5DII and 5DIII. What's happened to Canon's quality control?
5. No matter how hard I try, I can't get the battery grip off
6. The memory card door is on the back and won't slide open
7. It came with a double battery charger, but only one battery, I must have gotten ripped off - damn white box sellers!
8. My charger came with a cord instead of a flip out outlet - must be a foreign model?
9. My camera has 3 extra DOF preview buttons - they must have had a lot of spares?
10. I flipped some lever or something and now my viewfinder is blacked out???
Any assistance or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
No, but I have a Schneider (parent company of B&W) variND filter (up to 11 stops, see link below). IQ is fine, but max ND affect is a function of lens focal length. At 24mm, I could get about 2-3 stops minimum before X-banding happens (depends where the sun is) . With the 70-200 II at 200mm, I was getting about 7-8 minimum.
You might want to check whether or not the outer diameter is the same as for both sections. Although mine fits a 77mm lens, it's diameter is 96mm at the front to reduce vignetting for WA lenses.
Hmm.The 1D X is only heavy until you hear that glorious 12 FPS, and the 5DIII is only blah until you use it and realize how much better it is than the 5DII . I'm kidding, but I do love shooting with both of them and I find the extra weight on the 1D X to be pretty minor when attached to the 300 or 70-200 2.8.
But I want more than the 70D! 6D has been fun and will be a second. 1DX - so heavy??, 5D3 - perhaps, 7D2 - like others I'm (im)patiently waiting to see. Never the less, I'm not at all displeased with CANON!
The 7DII is going to be interesting when it comes out but I fear it will disappoint a lot of people. The 70D and 6D have really encroached on it and Canon's not likely to cannibalize 6D sales with it. It will probably be a 70D in a tougher body, with limited upgrades like 9 or 10FPS and extra video features. If it has the 1D X/5DIII AF and can AF at f/8, that will be huge, but I bet they'll cripple that. I really doubt it will be the mind blowing, 5DIII/1D X destroyer many hope it will be.
people pay 4000$ for non AF lens with only marginal better image quality.If I can't trust it, it's worthless.
i say sigmas AF in the new lenses is pretty good for the money.
Maybe, the end of unsharp pictures, if the evolution of the lightfield system continues.
