EOS Bodies / Re: Patent: More DO Supertelephoto Lenses
« on: May 19, 2013, 03:49:29 AM »
By my reckoning a 500/5.6 DO IS would weigh about as much as a 400/5.6 (2-3lbs) but would sell easily sell for 500/4.0 IS II prices.

I can also confirm to have read on BH Photo's site that the Lens Case is indeed included with the lens.

Kindly correct article. Thanks!

If I recall correctly the 100-400 IS zoom is shorter than a 400/5.6 prime.

I personally do not mind it. I do mind people who have double standards on it. It is ok for photographer A to remove this and that and "Photoshop" it to death but photographer B cannot do the same just because.

When posting respect the community standards or contest rules.

I am not surprised.    Don't treat rental equipment any different than if you owned it
I agree. I am sure this will become popular where I live in 12 months so I know not to join such festivus.

EOS Bodies / Re: Buy 1DX now or wait for an upgrade?
« on: May 05, 2013, 12:03:57 AM »
Upgrade will be announced by late October and will ship by January. I'm also waiting.

I know many will disagree but look up the product cycles and dates of the announcement and shipments of both the 1D and 1Ds.

The Canon Lens Case is molded to fit the lens only.

As such your options are the following

a) get a 3rd party replacement lens foot like those sold by 4th Gen, Whimberly, RRS, Kirk, Jobu, Naturescapes, etc.
b) attach/detach lens plate when putting the lens into the case
c) get a new lens bag like a Lowepro Lens Trekker 600 II AW. This bag is not airline carryon compliant by 3-4".

Lowepro Lens Trekker 600 AW II Small | Large


I opted for option A and C. In addition the lens case of Canon does not allow the transport of the lens with body attached for simpler deployment in the field.

Lenses / Re: EF 800mm f/5.6L IS II [CR2]
« on: May 01, 2013, 01:41:48 AM »
Why bother with a new 800mm if there's not much to improve at the moment?

Simple, the 800mm was something Canon has that Nikon did not.  Now Nikon has a better one that sells for $18K, so Canon wants to pass it, pricewise anyway.
20k for a 800mm IS II? I'd be willing to pay that amount for a 1000mm f/5.6 IS that weighed 4.5kg, more than 4-stops of IS and minimum focusing distance of 6 meters/20 feet. :)

and the 1200 F5.6 is also way overdue for updating.... and probably costs more than my house.
I'd be more inclined to get that than an updated 800mm

I see this as a sooner replacement than the 800.
