Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM...since sold and upgraded to the f/2.8L IS II version. Great lens! I thought I was crazy for spending that type of money on a lens ($1050.00, 5 years ago). Oh how things are very relative. :-)

What is "GREY MARKET" again?
I was shooting a wedding yesterday. 5d iii worked great with one major exception. When shooting couples dancing (iso around 5000 1/200 s ). it was not able to deliver a sharp image (maybe one sharp in 10 shots) lenses used 50 f/1.4 , 85 f/1.8, 135 f/2L and 16-35 f/2.8 L II. Servo mode tried differnet cases different settings (points, first image priority etc). It was not a motion blur. Does anyone have an experience working with these lenses in servo? I mean I tried everything with no result. Are these lenses simply too slow for tracking? Was it too dark? Thanks.
not sure if Canon should buy Hassey, but perhaps they should buy a portion and allow Hassey access to their sensor and digital body technology.
If we look 5-10 years out, 35 mm format bodies will be maxed out with resolution and FPS. 25-100,000 ISO will become nearly noiseless. Where does Canon (or Nikon) go from there?
An increase in resolution will require a larger sensor. Challenge for Canon to get consumers (pros) to switch to MF is that the current lenses will not (most likely) work on MF bodies. So even if Canon came up with a $10,000 MF body, another $25,000 (or more) would be required for a new set of lenses.
I would like to have your feedbacks on gimbal tripod head.
To support BIG WHITE, which Gimbal head you guys use? Any third party(low cost) out there?
At this time, I'm leaning to Wimberley + Wimberley - P10 Quick Release Plate: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/404536-REG/Wimberley_WH_200_Gimbal_Type_Tripod_Head.html
My WimberleyII Arrived today....AWESOME Thanks everyone.
I bought the WIMBERLEY II and a cheap gimbal head on amazon(not as smooth as the Wimberley)
I'm going to return the cheaper version: http://www.amazon.com/Opteka-GH1-Heavy-Gimbal-Supports/dp/B0071BIQZC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1399066268&sr=8-1&keywords=gimbal+head
I'm looking to take my photography hobby to the next level, so to speak , so I'm thinking of buying me a tripod and a tripod head. I've done some research online, but I think I'm more confused now, than when I started thinking about tripods and heads. (I guess, that happens a lot). From my understanding, Manfrotto and Induro seem to be the best tripod brands, so I'm looking to get the above mentioned gear from either of these two. I'm more inclined, however, towards Induro products.
In so many words, what do you guys make of this?
That was how I felt with the erratic and occasionally brilliant old model Sigma 50mm f/1.4.I say Sigmas AF in the new lenses is pretty good for the money....If I can't trust it, it's worthless.
My two copies got used for some personal work, endless testing but simply couldn't be trusted for client work. Therefore ultimately worthless.
I truly hope Sigma finds an AF fix for the new lenses deliverable via firmware. The optics are clearly awesome, but without dependable AF they're a commercial no-go.
Hmm, from scratch you say?
5D mk III - 3500
24-70 mk II - 2300
70-200 IS mk II - 2500
and maybeee Sony RX1 or some fast prime probably sigma 35mm or sigma 50mm
