Hm. So my copy of CS6 will stay a looong time with me.

And sure this will make me look around for alternatives.

As mentioned before: a Polarizer would be helpful.

Although not a native  english speaking person I would highly recommend this book.

They are allowed to invite me.
Rumors (!) said, they are well paid for their visionary decisions and leadership.....

Owning two "serious" bodies (5d3, 1d4) the Sony RX100 is a kind of backup and more: its more stealthy.
Using this little piece reduces the attention sometimes significantly.
Cellphone: no.

Lenses / Re: 50mm 1.2L vs 35mm 1.4L for events photography...

For events  I would take the 35L because of the wider angle.
Depends how close you are and your style of shooting.

I have the Lowepro 75 and the Thinktank 50 v2.
The biggest advantage of the TT is the possibity to unzip an extension, so a 70-200 fits with hood not reversed.
The Lowepro has more space for extras and the better cushion.

Use them both, then you know which one is ready to go and which one stays.
If you want something else, rent and try.
Good luck and dont forget to have fun (making pictures!!)

Sometimes funny things happen with different card/cardreader combinations.
I have an issue reading the Sony SD 16GB UHS-1 with the Lexar USB 3.0 reader.
Loads very slow, then tells me, the files are corrupt.
Same issue with the Hama USB 3.0.

With an old Hama 2.0 device the download worked fine.

Interseting thing: also cardreaders can be updated by firmware. I dind`t know this until a friend told me.
Didn`t help in the case of the Hama USB 3.0/Sony SD combination......

Sure C. is developing something new.
And I am sure, also a new FF.
They always will.

Time will tell.
You can be sure by buying a 5d3 to have a good tool now.  ;)

Its a fine glass. Had it once, liked it a lot.

But then I had the money for the IS v2......

Epson 3800.

Try it, look how much you use it.
If you dont like it, sell it.

My copy was a lemon. Changed it for the Tokina 16-28; this I used a lot on my trip in Venice.
And yes: humans in the corners, espacially on the wide end can look a bit distorted.

Never tried to lock pictures, and thank you for the warning.
If this happened to two different cards, Canon needs to explain this.
The first one is/was ~ $ 300?
If you get an answer, please post it.
Good luck!
