I think if your purpose is to do group shots and hand held landscape this is the lens to get. I'd only consider a f/2.8 if I was doing action shots.

Coppersmith Barbet,(Megalaima haemacephala), by alabang, on Flickr

The Coppersmith Barbet, Crimson-breasted Barbet or Coppersmith (Megalaima haemacephala), is a bird with crimson forehead and throat which is best known for its metronomic call that has been likened to a coppersmith striking metal with a hammer. It is a resident found in the Indian Subcontinent and parts of Southeast Asia. Like other barbets, they chisel out a hole inside a tree to build their nest. They are mainly fruit eating but will take sometimes insects, especially winged termites.

This is how rumors start. ;)

I regret not jumping ship to Nikon when the 800e came out. Now Nikon comes out with an update and canon is still dragging their feet with a high mp camera. I loved my mk III , but I see the limitations when I print anything larger than 30x40. I never thought canon would sit back and twiddle their thumbs and scratching their heads for two years, let alone almost three years for an update.
That could get Canon to do an update.

It must be truly great because I can't really imagine needing anything better than is offered by the 5DMkIII.
This is always said until the next latest and greatest shows up.

Canon General / Re: CF CARDS
« on: June 26, 2014, 04:14:57 PM »
I think cf has another ten years of life... but smaller with universal support is big.

The day is coming, but I wouldn't sweat it now.
No one's saying CF cards will disappear overnight but it will lose relevance to newer cameras once a CFast-based Canon body starts shipping. Whatever sales CF cards has within the decade will be for legacy hardware.

CF5.0 spec allows for 116,415TB data storage but at 167MB/s it would take more than 23 years to transfer all the data.

Nothing inherently wrong with the previous version. Canon will service it for about 1-2 decades more.

When Canon switches to CFast then I can see them switching to USB 3 from USB 2.

Apple dropped Firewire altogether because of the bandwidth limitation of the standard at 40MB/s and 80MB/s. These were fast during the time of USB 1.x and USB 2.x but Firewire pales in comparison to USB 3 speeds of 500MB/s

Thunderbolt 1 & 2 are spec'd to 1,000MB/s & 2,000GB/s respectively.

What probably restricted Canon from transitioning to faster I/O is size, heat, power draw, price, usability, demand & workflow.

It is possible that SDI is too high end or it isnt as popular as HDMI. If you do want a pro video camera then get a Cinema EOS and not a EOS?

just curious what you guys think the next cameras will have in regards to their connection for tethered shooting?  Will Canon put USB3 or Thunderbolt and if it's Thunderbolt could there be a new version of Thunderbolt that doesn't coincide with today's version?

I have not kept up on the computer news but I do remember when Apple dropped firewire 400 that a lot of cameras were using for tethered shooting

thanks for any insights

p.s  any reason why they won't put SDI connections verses HDMI?

Neuros actually my alternick. ;) he's the Bruce Wayne to my batman.

I agree. If it doesn't work at -30c it is useless for cricket.
As for major sporting events the next ones are the 2016 Sumner Games in Brazil, 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and 2018 Winter Games in Korea.

I dont know of any major sporting event in 2015 so my bet is the new 1-Series body will be out sometime in 2016.

The Rugby World Cup is a truly massive sporting event, and will take place in 2015. It will take place in England. I can't wait, as am already looking forward to it!!!  ;D

World cup of Cricket also happens early 2015. Thats three major events in 2015!
and the Constance Bay Ice Fishing tournament. That makes four!

LOL@ Constance Bay Ice Fishing tournament....times a billion!   ;D
you've got to test a pro level camera in cold weather :)

If it does not work properly at -30C it is completely useless as a camera. Well known fact.

Didnt bother waiting and got a 40/2,8

Wow....a completely different lens, even a 24-70L would have been a more versatile alternative
5mm narrower
2-stops slower
95% cheaper
Available, yesterday.
L-like optics

You buy the pancake because you want the following
- prime
- modern design
- tiniest prime
- lightest prime
- under $150
- Available, yesterday

In contrast the 24-70 is a bulky, heavy, unwieldy & pricey mess that's uses a 82mm filter.
