Pricewatch Deals / Re: Big Lexar Memory Card Deals at B&H
« on: August 05, 2012, 09:09:53 AM »
I was going to replace all of my SanDisk Extreme Pro cards with these Pro cards from Lexar but my local camera dealer told me that because their is some behind the scenes conflict between Canon and Lexar that Canon does not support their cards and that they may not work in my cameras. Anyone have any information on this or know if there is any truth to it?
Lexar 1000x are the fastest memory cards you can use on modern Canon SLRs.

I hope to see 64GB Lexar 1000x at the price of 32GB cards by year's end.  ;D

Wish it was true. Would be nice to have a 135 f/1.4 even if it weighed 2kg.

I think the restrictions are there for health & safety and contractual reasons.

But with smartphones having more pixels that pro SLRs these restrictions become impossible to impose when it comes to contractual reasons.

EOS Bodies / Re: A New 100-400 & Coming Announcements [CR2]
« on: July 25, 2012, 10:40:21 PM »
I rather see a 400/5.6 with IS than a 100-400. Why? Cause you'll be shooting at 400 almost all the time!

The recently released zooms (70-200, 24-70 based on MTF) are beating older primes in the same range.  If the new 100-400 follows suit, there likely will not be a lot of IQ difference.  So...I see big advantages in the zoom: 1) when you want to shoot shorter than 400mm (air shows, birds flying toward you) and 2) much shorter retracted length.  For me, #2 is a huge advantage of the current 100-400mm over the 400/5.6 prime.

Assuming a prime and zoom of similar focal length and f-number are released the same year the prime will have the price, weight, IQ and technology advantage.

Not to mention today's 400/5.6 older than the 100-400 being replaced.

Canon prices are high for a number of reasons. Strong yen, high demand and year of release being some of them. Street prices on lenses happens between 6-9 months after release depending on how popular the lens is.

Haha, this looks almost as ridiculous as an iPhone with a Photojojo SLR mount attached.
Exactly! The M looks like an oversized lens cap.  ;D

Now I know how crazy I'd look shooting with the M.

I hope it is priced competitively to 43rd, Nikon, Pentax and Sony.

Wish the firmware also improves ISO noise.  ;D

This is a welcome upgrade from Canon and makes me happy I did not sell my 7D. Now only if I sold my 5D2 earlier I would have been able to buy the 5D3 by now.

552
So are you affected?

Cheaper than buying an underwater case for a point & shoot.  ;D

Lenses / Re: Lenses: 35L II & 85L III Next Up? [CR1]
« on: April 24, 2012, 01:36:03 AM »
Nikon updated their 35/1.4.

Time for Canon to do the same, me thinks.

Why? Does canon really need to replace these lenses? they are not that old.

The 35mmL was introduced in 1998.  Its not exactly a new lens,
I guess it is more an issue of priority. I think the 35L is a pretty reliable piece of kit and has plenty of potential left in it to satisfy most photographers needs.

1996 EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM.
Yes! This would be nice. Canon is short on long macro lenses (short on long!?). It would be nice if they could pull the minimum focus to around the level of the 100L, while also improving the bokeh above 5.6, perhaps with 9 blades instead of the current 8.

These are the L primes that are much older than the 85L II.

1993 EF 400mm f/5.6L USM
1996 EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM
1996 EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM
1996 EF 135mm f/2L USM
1997 EF 300mm f/4L IS USM
1998 EF 35mm f/1.4L USM

My preference is that Canon updates the EF 400mm f/5.6L USM, EF 135mm f/2L USM, EF 35mm f/1.4L USM and then the EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM before doing anything with the 85L II.
