Beautiful photos guys.

Love this thread

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: How long until the next FF body? Or buy now?
« on: November 15, 2014, 11:14:13 AM »
I'm not familiar to the Canon ecosystem and I'm not sure what choice is wiser. So if you guys could give me some advice, it'l be highly appreciated.
If there is a new FF Canon on the horizon, how long do you think until release, based on experience with previous Canon releases in the past?
What would you do if you were like me - wait or risk and buy, and then sell it cheaper if new FF body is released eventually (can't afford to have two bodies)?
There are good 6D deals now(5Dmk3 is ridiculously overpriced, even the second hand deals).


If that the case, I suggest you shouldn't wait for next FF.

I will pre-order it.

One of three missing lenses in my kit.

Only because I have very little shame...

Is your name pronounced Dih-lan or Die-lan... because in my mind I've been using the latter for the past few years... and I feel a little racist when I think maybe I'm just adding the odd pronunciation because I know you are of asian decent.

Call me whatever you want JD, except "late for dinner"  ;D

Just in case:

Frankly, I never understood the attraction of ordering a product before it is reviewed. Is being the "first kid on the block" one of the motivations?

Based on the MTF charts, I would pre-order it if I have a need for it.

Besides, Canon latest releases seem to be SUPER.

You will love it. It's not one bad thing about it, I think it's the only lens I have nothing on the "not so good" side. I mean, the 200 is heavy and very expensive even though it's the best lens I have ever tried. But the 50 Art, I have nothing.. Perhaps the outer points sometimes aren't as good in Servo, compared to the 24-70, but it's also two stops less dof..

But make sure you get a copy with consistent AF. I have owned two 35 Art and two 50 Art and only my current 50 Art has a working AF, the other three could not be used for anything at all.. REALLY useless..

Indeed and it worths every penny  ;) This lens is just too good at f2

I was going to keep my 85 L II when I bought the 50 Art, but for the first time, have had multiple copies of the 85, I started to dislike it, the bending corners, the horrible purple fringing, the slow AF. And found the 50 art to be pretty flawless, and even though I tried to still use the 85 with the nice bokeh, but it just wasn't good enough seeing the ridiculous results from the Sigma wide open. It's my most used lens and along with the 200 f2 I had no more second chances for the 85. Haven't regretted ONE second, and the 50 Art just keeps me happy..

Still in love with my 85L II ;)

Lenses / Re: Canon 100-400 mk ii (with/without 1.4 ext) vs sigma 150-600

Based on previous experience, nothing is quite like canon AF. And I don't mean that some Sigma's are AF duds, but the sheer speed and presicion of new canon L lenses are unmatched.


Would be nice if:

1. Good Ai servo AF tracking, similiar to a6000 or better
2. Batterry life, up to 500 shots per
3. Built-in EVF, same as RX100 III(pop-up version). Keep the camera even thinner

MTF charts look impressive, especially with x1.4 TC. That would be 200-900mmish with 7D II, I feel the G.A.S is coming ;D

Can't wait for 35L II.
