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

I saw it last night, when instock showing 17 on hand. I added 4 units to basket, but for some reasons, I'm not comfortable with refur...items :-\

Came back 30mins later, 2 left and now SOLD OUT

Waiting for some decent deals, NEW. I set my price, $450(QTY:3-4 units)

Bottom line is, if these lenses can truly deliver high IQ & accurate AF, size wouldn't be a factor. Big aperture lenses have better balance when shooting with larger DSLR bodies: 1D X, 5D III, 7D, etc...

Just don't mount it to a mirrorless: EOS-M, A7r etc...

Looking at the picture, I was hoping for an UWA pancake... :-\

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)

It means compact FF mirrorless with fast AF + decent pancake lenses... ;D

S___.. must be asia only.
they get all the good stuff like the new EOS M2.....

Current M2 shouldn't be considered as "good stuff" - that just me ;)

Chief 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?  :o

or is he talking about the EOS M?

im puzzled.....

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 1D X Troubles (not funny)

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.

LOL... ;D

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.

Thanks Random Orbits for the info :)

Hmm.   :-\??? >:( :( :o :) ;)

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 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.
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.

I like the feel of 1D X with 24-70 II, 70-200 f2.8 IS II, even 85L II. I haven't try my 400mm on 1D X yet, but I'm sure the grip would feel MUCH-MUCH better than 5D III.

I'm waiting for 1D X II to come out, so I can buy a decent pre-own 1D X :)

Hi guys,
Have you ever try this B&W filter before? To have option from 1-5 exposure reduction is quite unique. I'm worry it might affect the IQ. I always have positive experience with BW, but haven't try this yet.


people pay 4000$ for non AF lens with only marginal better image quality.
i say sigmas AF in the new lenses is pretty good for the money.
If I can't trust it, it's worthless.

+1...I think is too early to tell. Sit back and enjoy the show Gents ;)
