I have both 70-200/2.8 IS and 70-200/2.8 IS II and I always go for the EF 200mm f/2L IS USM because it "is" that awesome.

I've used the following

EF 200 mm F/1.8 L USM
- Canon will not service this anymore due to lack of parts
EF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM II
- pretty solid lens. would go for it if I didn't have the previous version
- slighly lighter than the previous version

I own the following

EF 200mm f/2L IS USM
- Canon will still service
- lighter
- shorter focusing distance
- has 5 stops of IS
EF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM

If I would have only one lens I'd go with EF 200mm f/2L IS USM and use extenders to get 280/2.8 and 400/4

Has anyone else had any problems with their 400 series cf cards??
Having problems with yours?

Wish the prices of these two UDMA 7 cards remained the same. 64GB's below $100 and 128GB's below $237 today.

I would've gone with two 128GB Lexar 400x UDMA 7 cards at below $170/card.

With a 128GB UDMA7 card you can have these many RAWs & L JPEGs. These figures were based on what was written in each body's manual.

L JPEGs
1D X & C - 19,200
1D4 - 22,144
5D3 - 16,160
5D2 - 19,840
7D - 18,976

RAW
1D X & C - 4,480
1D4 - 5,600
5D3 - 4,160
5D2 - 4,608
7D - 4,960

Divide the figures by half if you decide on the 64GB UDMA7 card.

Note that 400x UDMA7 cards are not fast enough for the 1D C 4K recording. For that purpose you need a UDMA7 card that can write at 100MB/s or better like any 1000x UDMA 7 card or Sandisk's 100MB/s UDMA7 card.

How about a fast prime that is lower than f/1.0 :) Like say f/0.95 or f/0.7.

Canon General / EF mount's obselences
« on: January 15, 2013, 02:39:57 AM »
With Canon finally making a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera makes you wonder when they will abandon SLRs all together. If I am not mistaken it took Canon 5 years to transition from FD mount to EF mount.

So what do you think? Will we be seeing our beloved gear become yesterday's news or a decades old survivor?

That's not the 135 I want! Where's the update to the 400/5.6!

If Apple Inc cannot bring the jailbreakers to justice what hope of Canon Inc? They have better luck stiffing the grey market imports.

4K video should not cost that much!

Lenses / Re: Soon to be Launched EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x
« on: January 05, 2013, 10:17:19 AM »
To me the 200-400 is the super tele to have if you are (a) only allowed one as the zoom is very useful, (b) want the built-in extender and you have (c) a lot of light.

Weighs like a 600 and costs almost as much...  ;D

While canvassing for a 600 II I found out that Canada has a tax rebate scheme. If you you are visiting canada you can avail of this.

Without tax a 600 II sells for CA$11,395.44 vs BH's $12,800.00.

Actually that's very useful assessment. Is this the foot you are using now? I have this on the 400 at the moment.

I can barelly fill my 32GB Transcend 400x and find the buffering a bit annoying when shooting continuous on my 1D4 and 7D. I would imagine a similar instance with the Lexar 400x cards as well.

With lens feet from Kirk, RRS, 4th Gen Design and others which one did you go for for your EF 600mm f/4L IS II USM and why?
