Solid body  :)

At f2.8, the 70-200mm has better sharpness than 24-105 at f4. The gasket should make contact with body nicely.

You might have a bad copy. Return it

Hmmm.  Maybe it is time to upgrade my G6!  Well, when I want something small I've got my M.  And, my wife is VERY happy with her RX1000iii 'cause she really wanted a viewfinder.

It's too early to tell, but I doubt this will out perform your RX100 III. The EVF is a nice feature to shoot outdoor. The price remains primary factor for these two. I don't see how Canon would priced at $800ish. If it around $600ish and MUST BE pocketable then Canon has upper hand.

Lenses / Questions: Canon 200mm f2 IS
« on: September 13, 2014, 12:45:59 PM »
Hi guys,
Quick questions for those owning 85L II, 135L and 70-200 f2.8 IS II.

1. Is there room for 200mm f2 IS II to blend in?

2. In what situation do you pull out the 200mm f2 IS II?

3. Did you sell any lenses after 200mm f2 IS purchase? Why?

Thanks in advance
Dylan

I'm probably going to get one just for the AF system. Any other improvements are gravy :)

That the key to sell 7D II - speed and accuracy for outdoor shooters

Just small incremental upgrades.  Not much to show for all the years of development if you ask me.  I'll skip the mark II, thank you.

I'm really torn.  One group that I talk to is saying that the 70D was only a marginal upgrade over the T2i (that I currently use).  They're also saying the 7Dii is going to probably only be a marginal upgrade as well.  I bought the T2i years ago when I was first learning how to shoot.    But there's a lot of people on this forum saying the image quality would be massively improved over the T2i if I switched to the ii.   

I'm photographing mainly wildlife, about 85% of what I photograph is birds, smallish ones.  In actuality I'm only using the center focus point probably 90% of the time as well, since I'm good at getting in the range of my 400mm, and it's close enough that the center point covers most of the bird.   

May skip the ii, and maybe go to a 5diii or 6d or something, since I'm not hurting for reach in the least.

My sources said, 7DII has clean IQ up to 12800ISO too.

Yup, -2ev. There is no point for -3, since 7D II is an outdoor camera.

Not so, good AF is always relevant.

Even flash photography sucks if you can not get the camera to focus!

"good AF is always relevant" - yes, therefore dual cross points in rumors specs will be MORE benefits than that -3EV.

The joystick will be huge benefit for that 65AF points.

Looks nice

my bet is 2

Or is that -2?

Yup, -2ev. There is no point for -3, since 7D II is an outdoor camera.

What body are you going to apply Ec-S with? 1DX?

I thought I saw few threads Eldar mentioned he applying ec-s on his 5D III - I could be wrong on this.

So far..........NONE

Zeiss 85mm seems interesting, but then, no AF. I'm really BAD with MF.
I'm expecting the Ec-S screen from B&H today or tomorrow and will let you know how it works out.  The 5DII and 60D versions really made manual focus a pleasure.
