Lenses / Re: how to get 300 2.8
« on: September 17, 2014, 06:39:04 PM »
I finally got an 85L mkii after about five deals that went bad and a year of pining.  So my gas should be satiated for a few months.  Having said that... I think I may wind up looking at the 200f2 or the 300 f2.8 sometime here in the not too distant future... It is quite troubling.

Congrats JD
I think 85L II and 200mm f2 will be great for kids. Want to race to 200mm f2 finish line with me?  ;D

sell as is "be honest with current condition" and move on.

Too much MP for my taste.

My 5D Mark IV is going to be made by Sony and have a 36MP sensor.

Company likes Canon, I wouldn't worry about hardware issues. Firmware, yes. Can be updated.

The price drops, Uhmmmm, is another story. If 7D II turns out to be popular camera(which I think it will be), the price drops could take 6 months or more.

Size looks good. Very promising.

Ever mull over the 200mm f/2L and the 1.4 tc?  It's not quite 300... it's not quite as sharp, though you also wind up with that extra stop of light if you are shooting indoors.

I played with it last couple days. Just like many mentioned, the compression of 200mm and f2 are insane.

My GAS status is now up-north. This could be the last purchase for 2014  :)

If I have a need for an UWA tomorrow, I would go for 16-35 f4 IS.

If there is a poll for most "boring and crappy photos", mines will be at top  ;)

From the beginning, I build my gear based on my kids. Times went by, I
m getting bored with just kids photos. Decided to try sports and wildlife photography, well things are getting much more interesting now. Wish I have more times.

About try diff. type of photography? Sports, wildlife, moon star etc....

Many claimed there is not much diff. in IQ between Canon 300mm f2.8 ver.1 and 2(only weight). I had the oppertunity shooting with ver 2 for over weeks. IQ is just SUPER.

If I have to choose one one, I would go for Canon.

A very interesting read. Canon has made a real breakthrough in DO. I would love a short new 100-400mm for travel. A bit worrying, however, for all those who have invested in series II glass if it all suddenly becomes obsolete.

Current 300, 400 and 600mm II are SOLID. I got to play with all three. I wish I have couple millions in the bank to own all.

Good size for the beach. Will wait for the price to drop.

Too tempting to pass, so I pushed the order button. Looking forward to verify its high(er) ISO performance and how it works on the 200-400 f4L IS 1.4x and 600 f4L IS II lenses. Looks very promising to me, especially the AF system.

Good to know your G.A.S still there Eldar  ;)

I'm working on my 200mm f2 IS
