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

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 :)

Ergonomics... (and a few thousand dollars for direct advertising from Canon  8) )

EOS-M / Re: GREAT AND CHEAP BATTERIES FOR EOS-M
« on: January 19, 2014, 04:22:53 AM »
You are not giving me some real technical data above, number of shots depends on so many things - it's not an accurate measurement.

I guess you don't have a discharger which can show you real discharge time of this type of battery, but here is a fast and simple test:
Shoot with original battery and the magic one while the camera turns off and shows message "Change the batteries".
Put the Canon battery in the original charger and measure the time until the battery is charged.
Put the magic battery in the original charger and measure the time until the battery is charged.

In this case you will have the same input (mine says 0.54A) and depends on capacity when the batteries will be charged ;)

The other easy thing you can do is to check the weight:
"A significant part of the weight in a LiIon battery is Lithium metal. Two batteries of the same nominal capacity should have similar weights.
I'd guesstimate that a 10% difference may be due to happenstance and construction, but beyond that I'd be suspicious.
In larger & heavier batteries this test will work better than for very small batteries."

I don't believe those are 2200 mAh and I don't like batteries which someone sells with different charger (usually they are NOT decoded and the camera does not show battery level).

I got 2 of this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2Pcs-Full-Coded-1250mAh-LP-E12-Battery-for-Canon-EOS-M-Camera-Show-Battery-Level-/170895464586?pt=Batteries_Chargers&hash=item27ca29d88a
They are working fine, I don't see any difference with the original battery.


Thanks, Dear noncho.
Thanks for another option for all EOS-M users.  For 2200 mAh storage power, I just read on Amazon and Read at the label on the Batteries per the Photos that show in this post. I do not think that they lie to us, This Sell in USA, and Very dangerous to not tell the Truth. Up to this After noon I take 85 More Photos = 85 + 438 = 523 Photos so far, and Still Full Battery in one charge = Magic for me.

Surapon

You really believe that you have 2.5 times higher capacity in this third party battery in the same small package? And you believe that your new small LP-E12 are with higher capacity than the original much larger LP-E6 (used in 5D III/7D, 1800 mAh) because this is what the label said?

Sorry, but I have some technical background and I don't believe in magic and miracles just because I'm using 3rd party batteries too  ::)

Lenses / Re: 135L or 100 Macro IS?
« on: January 17, 2014, 12:14:35 PM »
Well, you have some portrait lens, but you don't have macro.
If you want to shoot macro - get 100L, I have just bought Sigma 105 2.8 OS macro because I like to have macro lens.

135/2 is another beer :)

Third Party Manufacturers / Sigma 105 F2.8 EX DG macro OS
« on: January 16, 2014, 12:59:03 PM »
Sigma 105 F2.8 EX DG macro OS was somewhere out the lights, because the lens price was too near to 100L.
But about 2 months ago Sigma drop the price in USA and Europe and now it's much more interesting. I bought one and I'm impressed - 100L is slightly better only with focus speed and accuracy.

I have 100/2 and 200/2.8 and they NEED replacement - 100 have horrible purple fringing, 200 needs IS.

The weather sealing part was awesome :D
I'm going for some tape to make my lens sealed too...
