Definetely interesting camera. Liked the design from the 100,heard about the good IQ and the quirky interface.
Good thing they listened to their customers, this time I think I will buy it.

My copy worked very good on the 5d2; still very good on the 1d4 and the 5d3.
Tried before the redringed 17-40 and the 16-35II, both had horrible soft corners, the 17-40 also heavy chromatic abberations....

I use the Sony- case. And the short strap is wound around my hand.
Although the camera never slipped of my hand its a safe feeling
and the camera haa much more protection.
And closed it avoids the cam getting dusty.

I have the Sirui M 3204. Leightweight, quality and the folding makes it really small for transport.
The monopodability is a welcome extra.
Like it very much and carry it more often then the heavier predessor.

Excellent picture, interesting story and now he has some equipment again.
Sad thing to hear that even a talented person like him had to struggle.....

I had a Manfrotto 055xprob. Good, but heavy.
Then I gave the Sirui M 3204 a look and like it.
Same height, much lighter cause made of carbon, small folded together.
I'm 6'4 and dont have to bend down, the center column only a few cm out.
Good luck for your search!

Depends with which gear you feel comfortable.
I like the Colani- design of the bodys since the old T90.
And the "better" sensor: panta rei.

Thanks a lot!

Yes. The 32GB. No problem so far, very fast download on the Computwr with the Lexar (!!) 3.0 cardreader.
Have several 16GB 600x, never had a problem.

Depends only on you.
I simply love my 35/1.4.
Why? This is my favorite: persons and a bit of the surrounding scene, softly blurred away.
The 50/1.4 I don't take often; IQ is good too, but.....
What would life be without these sweet paon of decisions.
Good luck, and have fun with your chosen one!

Left eye. And leave the right relaxed open.

Lenses / Re: Bridge not sharp - why?
« on: March 11, 2013, 02:14:03 AM »
Far distance can cause problems because if the air between. Not only the moisture, sometimes its a flow of warm or cold air in it that causes blur and the pictures suffers being not sharp.
Telefotos are different; its not just getting things closer.....

If I were you- and I think thats the point- I would take my best equipment.
This is my 5D3, the Tokina 16-28, the 24-70, the 70-200 and the 1,4TK.

And the Sony RX100 if I am at a place, where I cant bring the big stuff.

Depends on you, how much you can and want to bear.

Best wishes for the trip.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 6D or 5D Mark III

I liked the IQ of the 5dMk2 a lot.
But the AF was awful not using the centre and/or moving subjects.

The 5dMk3 is an ideal allrounder, you would enjoy a lot taking picutres from erratic moving subjects like your kids.

Wasnt that 1066?
Anyway, the years past by....
