Since I can't afford Fuji x100s, my 5D III + 40mm pancake is my Canon x100s ;D

well, this got mostly settled...

bag wise, going lowepro pro roller x300.

lenses -

just sprung for the used 100 macro 2.8 (the non L).. read so many reviews that said don't even try to use it handheld, but, hell, lets see how it goes...I can give it a good test as a second shooter this weekend.

As for the 24 1.4...renting one for 8 days...from the 17th-25th.  8 days, 1 wedding, and a vermont trip...that should tell me what i need to know about that lens.

Great selection on x300 Chuck Alaimo ;)

I'm extremly happy with "Lowepro Pro Roller x200 Case". As you can see my signature, it fits all my current gear and much more... I travel quite often, therefore, I picked x200 as a carry on bag. I put all my electronic devices in this bag when I travel - phones, laptop, cameras + lenses etc... and carry with me on the plane.

I love the Lock and Go System . Zippers are huge. The bag is really solid and looks great.

Dylan,
You never have a problem with the airlines? The bag itself - empty - weight 13.1 lbs (5.94kg). And the exterior dimension being 24,2" (61,5cm)
[/size]

I fly with Cathay from LAX to HongKong quite often. The x200 bag fits just fine, zero problem as carry on. I do check-in my clothing lug though ;D

I love the retro design of x100s - IQ is really good. I hope Fuji will release FF with retro design soon.

Just a 2nd thought, I carry 5D III + 40mm pancake quite often. It's quite close to x100s body size ;)

Lenses / Re: Looking for opinions on a new lens. Zoom vs Prime.
« on: September 15, 2013, 07:17:36 PM »
I have 4 friends(Wedding Pro for 15yrs plus), all carry 24-70 + 70-200 with 2 bodies(FF) at the event. 3-4 flashes and million batteries.

In addition to that: 50L, 85L, 100 macro, and 135L for special shots.

They usually go in pair. Each carry 2 5D III

1st shooter: 24-70 + 70-200 with 2 5D III - general shooter
2nd shooter: 50L + 135L or 85L with 2 5D III - creative shooter

The 24-70 + 70-200 is a super combo. About you add couple more primes(24, 85) before selling it.

I plan to check out this lens tomorrow afternoon. What should I look for in used Telephoto lens?. Most importantly, what is the right price?

Lenses / Re: Rare opportunity to get some nice L glass which would you pick
« on: September 12, 2013, 10:44:58 PM »
Thanks all.

I have 2 scenarios.

85l
24-105
100mm macro
600exrt

Or
85l
6d body

Just not sure if the body would serve better than the lenses. The 16-35 is nice but not sure how much I will use it. I wish I could charge them all but I only have $2100 to spend and thats my limit.

May I ask, why 24-105??? when you already have 24-70

Lenses / Re: Did I make the wrong decision?
« on: September 12, 2013, 09:52:56 PM »

My question to you guys: Should I sell for the same price I payed, and look into the Sigma 35mm?

Sorry to say this...but you are the best person can answer your own question. If you feel 24mm is not for you, then try Sigma 35mm before sell it. You would get same resale value - either you sell it now or after 35mm. I found 35mm is quite easy to shoot on FF. I shoot a lot with my RX1.

I just don't see the advantage of keeping the lens that you hate or don't use at all - even if you lose $100 or so, sell it.......

agree with this review 100%.

I had this lens for 2-3yrs before getting the L.

You already have great selection of lenses.

I recently bought second 5D III, it helps a lot. 24-70 on one body and 70-200 on another. Missing shots are much much less :)
