Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Sony A7/R "Bundle Deal" up to $650 Off
« on: February 19, 2014, 02:14:22 AM »

This Viltrox zinc-alloy one seems okay as well.  I have a Viltrox Canon EF to M adapter which works OK though a bit loose on camera end.

My adapter EF to EF-M looks exactly the same and it's good, but I can't understand why EF-NEX is 5 times more expensive...

EF-S 24 would be near to 40 pancake FOV on FF. It's also near to EF-M 22/2, so I hope will be cheap, light and F2.

I'm going to buy 11-22 soon, it's still the best ultra wide small lens for the price.

Canon General / Re: Patent: EF-S 17-55 f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
« on: February 05, 2014, 02:42:44 AM »
18-55 IS STM is good enough - CANON we don't need new kit lens every year!
What about EF-S 40-120 2.8 IS, what about EF-S 15-50 2.8 IS, what about some new primes/pancakes for crop and M...
Or you are waiting Sigma to kick your *** again...

Lenses / Re: Which lens is should I buy.
« on: January 31, 2014, 10:18:51 AM »
I wanted the same as the author - good long lens for wild and walking around with 60D.
There is no perfect choice for that, but I end up with old Sigma 100-300 F4 + 1.4 extender.
And it's good not expensive option for me. 70-300L would be better(picture and IS), but a stop darker(no AF with extender) and more expensive.
Samples:

Bird, 420 5.6 wide open (300+1.4 extender)


Landscape 250mm


Autumn leaves ~200mm

Lenses / Re: zooms vs primes for landscape
« on: January 31, 2014, 09:07:01 AM »
It really depends what kind of landscapes you like.
I like both wide and telephoto, and if you have enough primes you can make it. I think the long end have more lens opportunities for landscapes both for primes and zooms. At wide end something like 16-35 is much more usable.

Software & Accessories / Re: Comfortable strap?
« on: January 23, 2014, 10:37:00 AM »
I bought this one(received week ago):



It looks nice, but it's not more comfortable than the original Canon 60D strap.

EOS Bodies / Re: Patents: Canon 85mm f/1.8 IS, 100mm f/2 IS, 135 f/2 IS
« on: January 22, 2014, 09:02:59 AM »
I don't see the point of a 135 f/2.8.
At the time of superlative sharp f/2.8 zoom lenses (24-70 II and 70-200 II), why would you buy a 135 that doesn't add anything "big" to your pics ? Maybe a tiny little bit sharpening ? Is it really worth it…? For me, it definitely ain't.



I see the point - small and light 135 2.8 IS prime for M would be nice :)
