My new Benro C-0681 just arrived. Wow it's light! Although it's the magic dreidal for me, a few weeks late. But I still got something!

Thanks for all the replies.
I'd explore Zeiss options but AF is a must for me. Children and weddings don't always wait for MF.
Really, pros these days will choose L for the build quality, weather sealing and reassurance that they will work and get the job done. Sharp all around and will last a good while
Any estimates of the weight of the 24-70 f2.8 IS ?
I suppose you use a different working color space (like AdobeRGB). Even if your setup is correct, make sure you export in sRGB. Some browsers (Chrome is one example) ignore embedded color profiles and always assume sRGB, and some websites seem to ignore or remove color profiles altogether, especially the ones that process the uploaded files to create different sizes (like flickr).
Can someone do this with a really new Lens? (70-200 2.8 II or 24-70 II)?
There was a Rumor that Canon changed Autofocus algorithms and Focus is now checked after focussing and corrected if not perfect (u can see this when the Lens does a tiny step after the first fast and large one). But it works only with new Lenses and Cameras (rumor said so)
Tamrons are junk. They're good starter lenses but that's about it.
It's awesome that you can assign the preview DOF button a function to change to AI Servo, but even when you perss it the camera remains in One Shot Mode. Is there a convenient way to immediately switch not only to the Servo, but also to a burst shooting mode?
Exactly. Now that they decided to hit the world up for $2,300.00 on the NON-IS version, what the heck are they going to price the IS version at? There has to be a limit ofo what the market will bear, and I think they already went to that limit on the NON IS.
Having had pretty much the same problem, I just ordered two Yongnuo YN-622C's. Depending on your location, you should be able to get them for anywhere between 80 and 100 USD for the pair. Anything cheaper will be far less versatile. Most alternatives with equal functionality are more expensive (Pocket Wizards, Phottix Odin) or again less functional (Phottix Strato, older YN's). Flip side is that build quality of YN is far from stellar.
I have this and I also have the aluminium version which is a little heavier they are great can be converted to monopod if needed and basically do everything
extremely good value for money tripods they come with a nice padded baga nd fold down to a nice compact size
From what I've read about issues and download time, locking up the camera while downloading, and lots of other things with various Canon Bodies, I have decided to not buy one, not even for my wifes G1X.Well, darn....
Maybe for a 10 mp camera with small jpeg files, it would be practical, but firing off shot after shot @30mb with a 5D MK III, they sound totally worthless. Even the faster cards don't cut it, I wouldn't even consider the low end ones.
Thought it might be a fun toy....from what I'd read..the 'pro' version of the eye-fi card said it would handle RAW files....
Anyone out there that uses the eye-fi?
You can also download the software from Canon. Maybe it bit more work. On the other hand, you can choose what you want and what not. And, online is always the latest version of the softwareNo, straightly speaking you CAN'T
In order to install online updates you'll need to have the original Solutions Disc (actual disc or ISO image) in place
Well, actually, you can. It does take a little more work. Keith at Northlight provides instructions. Basically, you either spoof the Registry (Windows) or delete a file from a duplicated installer package (Mac), which 'tricks' the installer into thinking you've already got Canon software installed. In spite of the check for previously installed Canon software, every updater is actually a full install.
But of course, you can only update as far as the latest available download from Canon, and the newest cameras usually ship with a version of DPP than is later than that, a version not made available for download until a newer update is released.
