Lenses / Re: Shootout: EF 16-35 f/4L IS vs EF 17-40 f/4L
« on: September 27, 2014, 08:57:31 PM »
Very nicely done!  I appreciate the detailed comparisons at various focal lengths and f-stops.  I have been contemplating buying a 16-35 f/4 and this review helped make my decision to do it.
You gotta love cr and members with GAS ;D

The image still shows the mirror.  We'll know when their seriously considering mirrorless when it goes away.
I'm in the late 30. I have high hope in canon ff mirrorless will be ready on my retirement  ;D

Although I haven't try 200mm f2 with x1.4 yet, but I have feeling it can't win the bare 300mm f2.8 IS II in term of IQ.

Let us know how the f/2L trial works out for you  :P

All I can say is awesome ;)

Mind if I throw in a curve ball into the mix?  I've been thinking about a 200L f2.  Which is a 280 f2.8... and a 400 f4...with extenders. 

I too have thought about the 300mm, but the 200 seems more flexible with the added stop.  Thoughts?

JD, here are some photos with 200mm f2 + 1.4x TC III.

These are raw, straight convert through LR5 with lens profile correction, minor adjustments in highlight & shadow etc...+25 in sharpness. 10-15 contrast: http://dylannguyen.smugmug.com/Lens-Test/200MM-F2-IS-14X-tc-iii/n-93P6B#!/

1D X Sample Images / Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx

There are few lenses in Canon line up that you MUST shoot wide open. This is one of them. @ f2

Aaaaah  Very nice shot Dylan  :)  Lovely little girl.

Thank you Click, Candyman and Viggo.

@ jrista

The RAW files from a7s are very to work with. Not much room to crop though.

Lighting / Re: Speedlites - How many are enough?
« on: September 26, 2014, 11:36:46 PM »
Started with five 600EX-RT + one Canon ST-E3-RT Speedlite Transmitter. I feel three are enough for my needs. More likely will sell other two.

BTW, The Canon ST-E3-RT Speedlite Transmitter works extremely well with 600ex-rt. Couldn't miss a single shot.

Lenses / Re: Canon 600mm f/4L IS II USM Purchase
« on: September 26, 2014, 11:27:36 PM »
I don't believe Canon has ever offered a rebate on the 600mm lens.  I'd encourage you to check out canonpricewatch.com's current 'street price' deal – it's several hundred less than I paid for my 600 II around two years ago.
+1 on CPW-Street Price: http://www.canonpricewatch.com/product/03580/Canon-EF-600mm-f4L-IS-II-USM-price.html

I recently bought 200mm f2 IS through them. A+ service from CPW. The best thing is the lens is BRAND NEW/SEALED from US authorized dealer(very well known) with Canon 1yr standard warranty. Couldn't ask for any better.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Why haven't you left canon?
« on: September 26, 2014, 11:15:48 PM »
Because Canon system works - from 1dx to their L lenses and flashes.

If they can come up with a decent FF mirrorless, few pancakes and adapter for EF lenses, I can smell the trouble for Sony and Fuji ;)

EOS Bodies / Re: Poll: Would you buy a high MP Canon EOS 5DIV?
« on: September 26, 2014, 09:55:22 AM »
No, but I'd likely buy a high MP 1-series body.

+1

-1...I hope Canon will release another 1-series just for high MP shooters, not in 1DX II.

I would be thrilled if I'm a 7D II owner  :)

I love this one. Well done.

+1....One of the best kid photos on CR - that is my vote.

EOS Bodies / Re: Poll: Would you buy a high MP Canon EOS 5DIV?
« on: September 26, 2014, 09:29:32 AM »
The question is hypothetical and presumes

1) a 5DIV would improve generically on the 5DIII but with a significant MP boost (at least 32MP compared to the existing 22MP for the 5DIII)

2) the price range of such a camera would follow the pattern of the 5D-family (around 3.500$ at launch)
+1 Plus, the poll assumes that Canon will mess with 5D series and increase the MP count instead of improving noise and DR.

+1
