Canon General / Re: Consumer DSLRs "dead in 5 years"

I'm a big fan of FF mirrorless...however, DSLR still play major role in my photography.

DSLR will die ONLY IF mirrorless can track moving subject as DSLR and lenses need to be smaller to go with compact body.

I do look forward to that day 8)

My 24-105 was worst. To me, it's normal.

However, if your copy still within 30days return policy, then return it and ask for new one.

Just got off the phone with BH, about pricing. All I can say is BH is AWESOME and so I DID. My 1st BIG WHITE ;D ;D ;D

Pricewatch Deals / Re: The opposite of a good deal

If you bought the lens when you needed it, there should be no frustration ... but if you bought it even though you did not need it, at that time, then you'll just have to live with that frustration. get frustration off your chest, let shoot more with that lens ;)

Pricewatch Deals / Re: EOS M & Lens Sale at B&H Photo

The 85 f1.8 for $349 is a crazy good deal, anybody on the fence about that lens then please, just get it!

Neuro, I got the 22/2 $299 kit but will probably not bother with the 18-55, it makes the package much bigger so kinda defeats one of the purposes for me, but, I was using the M with a 100L macro last week for fun and was shocked at how user friendly it was compared to my normal 1 series. It is going to be doing some serious product shooting in a couple of weeks because of that tryout.

Indeed, $334 is cheaper than a used copy on CL. Even though I already have 85L II, I'm was temped to pull trigger on f1.8 due to low price. At the end, I will save my $$$ for 1.4X TC III & 2x TC III ::)

For retro style, combination of Silver/Black works for me.

Lenses / Re: Graduation and Concert coming up which lenses to rent?
« on: November 25, 2013, 10:02:46 PM »
70-200 on FF is not that long. You might need 300mm f2.8 IS II for graduation.

For concert, if you can get close 50L is wonderfull in extreme low light. This lens shines at f1.2 - f1.4

Tiny FF mirrorless:
1. Better tracking than current 1D X + 12fps
2. Tiny lenses
3. Clean image at 12,000ISO
4. Make hot coffee

Lenses / Re: Price History of 300 2.8 II
« on: November 25, 2013, 12:03:27 AM »
I got my eyes on this 300mm f2.8 IS II for 6-7months - hoping for $500 - $600 discount/rebate. While Canon offers rebates on other lenses, nothing on BIG WHITES :-\

I finally pulled trigger on this lens through BH last week. Give BH a call about pricing. I'm glad I did ;)

If you want to save some money, refurb copy goes around $5800ish through Canon site. I saw couple times, however, I decided to go with BRAND NEW. My copy will arrive this coming Wed, since I selected FREE SHIPPING OPTION :o

Lenses / Re: Ken Rockwell reviews canon 50mm f/1.0
« on: November 24, 2013, 05:08:45 PM »
I'm not sure what coming down Canon product pipelines, but recent released primes seem to aim at f1.8ish with IS.

I might keep my 50L f1.2 and 85L f1.2 II around until I see f1.2 replacements. IS is helpful, but I still want that bulky red-ring large prime - that shallow DOF :P

Otherwise - f2 prime on ff mirrorless seems very attractive to me :o

Haha gratz Dylan! You got paid and that wasn't by seeling out, just by accident, even better!

Got in a situation kinda similar last week. I showed a few of my cityscapes to officials I was accompanying in Chongqing for meetings about urbanization. I now have a proposal for exhibition. :D
Even better  ;D

Priceless if I can shoot this lens at 1/60, indoor. Look forward to see IS on next version ;)
