Lol....lucky you...keep her close and let her know how much you cherish her...every day. Mine left me 2 years ago and is in the process of Divorcing me. The cool thing is that now I can spend my money on what I like...but I'd rather have her company than not, even after the hell she's put me and my family through over the last 2 years.

I'll keep your advice GMCPhotographics ;)

One of my co-workers went through this situation last year. It wasn't easy process for him. I'm trying to cut down my traveling as well. The wife wasn't happy lately, since we now have 2 kids 3& 5yrs. Believe it or not, this is my 2nd times to China in 2014. I still have at least 3 more trips coming ???

Your situation, I hope everything will go well for both parties.

Tron, it sounds like a plan :)

I did have a thought about renting 16-35 II or maybe 14mm II. It only cost $150 for 2 weeks ::)
DON'T RENT IT. BUY IT! Feel some temporary G.A.S relief and save the 150$. You are going to buy it anyway. We all know that. Resistance is futile :) :) :) :)

I'll stay humble this time and put that $1300 toward to 600mmish lens ;)

And now Dylan a tough question. Actually a very tough one: Does your wife know? Does she even  know about this poll?  ;D ;D ;D

If the size and color is same as my 400mm f2.8 IS II, she couldn't tell the diff. That why I ruled out Tamron ;D

That is truly very Funny, deceitfully crafty, and smart.
Nice opportunity to blackmail him for a 10% commission or we rat on him to his wife. ;D

Rienz, I just removed you from my "buddy list" >:(.........Just kidding ;D
By the way, I was seriously considering blackmail for 10% commission, but since you have not removed me from your buddy list, I think I should also be nice and reduce my commission to only 7% of the lens price  ;D

Your G.A.S is not any better than mine. Are you sure you want to do that? ;D ;D ;D

OFF TOPIC:
I'm heading to China this weekend. My co-workers and I will visit Guilin, the mountain range in the weekend there. I'll pack 5D III(x2) and 24-70 II + 70-200 f2.8 IS II with 1.4x TC III.

Can't even take my A7r with me, since I have no decent UWA for this system >:(

 :). Buy a 16-35 f/2.8L II . There is time.
 :) :). Hide well at home your 400mm f/2.8L IS II
 :) :) :). Come back with your new white lens ...  ;D ;D ;D

Thanks for your thoughts guys. The poll shows 50/50, interesting.

Interesting, the poll still showing 50/50 between these two. And of course, the Tamron option ::)

Zoomy has upper hand now, interesting ::)

Maybe, but then again his wife my well be on the pradarumors.com and lvrumors.com sites chatting to her friends about the latest Louis Vuitton. She may be saying, "he thinks I do not know, but he has his eyes on this stupid lens he'll hardly ever use anyway. I hope he gets it, as I have had my eyes on the latest LV shoe and bag set for a while now. Those and a nice 2 carat gem. He won't even know, they all look the same to him!!!"

 :o
LOL..... ;D

1. Happy wife = happy me
2. Happy me = more L lenses. My need list is done. My want list is never end...

Win win situation here ;)

Be able to visit places you mentioned above would be a dream come true for me - maybe one day when the kids grow up a little bit more.

I live in California, 10min -15mins away from Huntington Beach. It's very well known place for surfing. The summer here is quite special. Be able to capture the pro surfers will be interesting in my photography collection.


Hi Dylan, I couldn't afford to get to most of these places until my mid 40's, I'de say you have plenty of time.

Huntington Beach is a lovely spot I agree, My Family & I visited the area in 2011, we drove from San Diego to Vancouver over a 5 week period, probably some of the most amazing Coastline on the Planet.

Well eml58,
If you ever come by again....I would love to buy you a beer or two ;) and some Vietmanese food :P

ok, enough of this now. Next topic: What's the better lens: The EF 2.8 14 L or the EF 5.6 800 L?

Neither.  The 14/2.8L II is better than the original, and the 600/4L IS II + 1.4xIII is better than the 800/5.6.

If you really want to compare just those two lenses, it depends on your needs.  The 14/2.8L makes a better hand-thrown projectile weapon, and the 800/5.6 makes a much better club.   ;)

Neuro, your title "CR GEEK" is well earned ;)

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Adorama Email Ad
« on: March 09, 2014, 08:33:24 PM »
Adorama needs to STOP this kind error. This is NOT the first time. It is confusing and misleading.

912
So, I was sitting watching some birds building a nest last night in our Boojum tree and thinking about getting out the 100-400 to try to get a decent shot in the backlit dusk and simultaneously goofing around online.  I log into canonpricewatch.com and see this ridiculous price for a 300 f/2.8 ii.  You know the lens I rented last fall and fell in love with and put myself on a watch list for a good refurb price and have since wondered about? 

And then the "GAS" attack hit me.  How could I avoid that price for a new one with a Canon Warranty?  About 5 minutes later I received my email confirmation even though the sun had passed its useful moment and the nest was now in the dark, but I didn't mind.  I guess I will need to figure out what to use to pay for it, but I will manage.

Guess I'll be looking at a 2xTC soon.  Anyone want to buy my 100-400?

LOL... ;D ;D ;D

Congrats JPAZ - don't forget to share some pics

Lenses / Re: Collecting gear
« on: March 09, 2014, 01:04:45 PM »
For starters get a 24-70 2.8L II, 70-200 2.8L IS II, 16-35 2.8L II, TS-E 17 L, TS-E 24 II L, 85 1.2L II, 35 1.4L, 135 2L, 100 2.8L IS Macro, 300 2.8L IS II, 500 4L IS II, 1.4XIII, 2XIII, 8-15 4L, then step back, relax, use them and decide what you need more...  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

You reminded me of a dude, Dylan777 ;D ;D ;D

+1 with Neuro and others - "Don't 'collect gear'. Figure out what you need to do that you can't with your current gear, then get what addresses that gap"
