Software & Accessories / Re: Louis Vuitton bag
« on: March 03, 2014, 08:41:57 PM »
Nope, not spam...

The new Camera Bag from Louis Vuitton will hold a gripped/pro body and 3-4 lenses.  It comes with one internal divider, so there's plenty of room for the lenses to roll around and bash into each other.  There's also a handy outer pocket that will hold approximately 300 compact flash cards. 



This attactive, full-featured camera bag can be yours for a mere $3,750 (a real bargain at slightly less than a 5DIII + 24-105L kit).  You can purchase your very own here.

 :o

This is a "must have" bag, but I'm going to wait for BIGVALUESINC special sale ;D

... so I choose the trusty Canon 100-400 L IS and I also got the EOS 70D to get that little extra reach (also the sales guy made a really good deal) ... so now I feel a bit relieved from the GAS ... but that's only till the Sony a6000 releases.   
Isn't it great? Having sold my 5D2 I bought a second 5D3 and now I feel as if I had a good dinner after being hungry ... ( = GAS relieved  :) ). I found out that for me the solution is to sell old gear (if and when I find a buyer of course) and get a new item. My list of old items has decreased though  ::)

Congrats on 2nd 5D III ;)
 
Are you ready these?: 300mm, 400mm, and/or 600mm ;D
I have the 500mm f/4L IS II  :)

In addition , I have the 300mm f/4L (non IS). It is a very old but very sharp  (even fully open) L lens so I am not selling it. So for now I resist to 300mm f/2.8L IS II   :)

P.S I forgot to mention that recently I got 24-70 2.8L II and I upgraded my Canon version II teleconverters to version III  :)

I guess...you good for now ;D

I recently bought the 1.4x TC III. It's not bad when attach to my 400mm f2.8 IS II ;)
It ... cannot be bad! Even my EF1.4XII with the 300mm f/4L non-IS was an excellent combination!
Now, will you get your 400mm 2.8L IS II a present? A 2XIII  ;D

I did have a thought about x2 TC III for my 400mm, however, I'm little concern about the IQ.

I heard 600mm + 1.4x TC III is quite nice, therefore, I'm more leaning to that direction. I still have plenty of times to think about this combo, because my photography bank account still quite empty ;D

I think one of my favourites, we had planned this shot the day before, the Male Leopard was mating so we knew he would be in the area late at night, not hunting, moving slowly as his work was cut out for him mating about every 5 minutes (tough guys these male Leopards), light was from another vehicle placed with it's headlights on the Animal.

We were able to set up quite close to the Animal without spooking it, allowing a series of Images, of which I think this was the best.

1Dx & 300f/2.8 II

AWESOME shot eml58 ;)

It's always nice to see your and Gary photos

Pricewatch Deals / Re: New Lens Rebates From Canon USA
« on: March 03, 2014, 09:39:00 AM »
Of course... two weeks AFTER I get the 135/2L...

Chances are that you paid less.

And if you didn't, you're likely still within the return window.  So, return it, repurchase it, and get the rebate (although you may lose some of that to shipping, depending on where you bought the 135L).

Either way, the 135L is a great lens - enjoy it!

+1 with Neuro. I did that with my a7r + Zeiss 55mm - when Sony was offering $200 discount in bundle. I got $200 credit back without shipping back and forth. BH is AWESOME about this.

Below are the list of lenses and Speedlites that qualify for the mail-in rebate program.

Boring.

Enough with the mail-in rebates. Bring back instant rebates.

What wrong with american express gift card? It's good as cash ::)


its actually just cash too...


if you call the number on the back of the card you can request for a refund of the balance of the card. they will mail you a check.

Didn't know that...thanks

In my case, it's not necessary. Will buy something from BH anyways. Since I'm looking at 16-35 II, B+W 82mm is not cheap ;)

Lenses / Re: Speculation: Year of the Lens
« on: March 02, 2014, 09:18:45 PM »
It took a ton of consideration when I bought the 70-200 is mkii... and that was two grand.  I can't see a future where I pay 4 grand for a lens.

Would I consider paying a premium for a lens that is in the top of its class, but I think two grand is where that willingness starts to  die out.
I said that when I first got into photography.  Then I need more reach for indoor swimming...300mm f2.8 IS II - 400mm f2.8 IS II become necessary ;)

I have no regret buying my BIG WHITE yet :)

EOS-M / Re: Is the canon eos-m a dead end system?
« on: March 02, 2014, 01:27:16 PM »
Sony needs to release uwa asap for a7 system. ...otherwise, it could be "dead end" as eos-m.

FE 16-35/4.0 zeiss/sony is next up for 2014 according to the roadmap.

Current 24-70 f4 size is kinda big for this system. They need to release compact prime at f4.
