Reviews / Re: Review - Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II

I'm going to order this  lense (70-200) ... show I wait? I see it's almost 2 years old - is Cannon to release a new version?

Thanks!
Mojo

You'll have to wait at least 12-15 years...

Lenses / Re: Will Canon step up to Zeiss with a 55mm 1.4L?
« on: February 22, 2013, 02:17:40 AM »
Yes, of course i would pay that. I have wanted a great 50 since I bought my 350 D and the current L I find to only work properly with AF on the 1d X and even then.. But the issue I have with it is the iq one AF point off center really isn't fantastic. I had more keepers with the Zeiss 28mm than with any of AF lenses in the 5d2.

I have said many times , why is the 1,5kg only acceptable weight for a 70-200? If I can carry that, I can and would love to, carry a 50 that weighs that if it means extraordinary IQ, and this Zeiss seems to it.

Have you tried AF speed and accuracy against the 35 L?

The AF speed and accuracy are as good as anything Canon offers. Sigma has finally nailed AF with Canon.
I would argue this is a better lens than 35L in every way but weather sealing. Some would favor the OOF rendering of the Canon over the razor sharpness of the Sigma. To each their own. No reason for a current 35L owner to switch though.

The 35 L isn't weathersealed either, and it's one of the biggest reason I want the 35 L II now that the sigma isnt't sealed either.

I must say that the 35 L is my favorite fast prime, and I have had them all.

This is a snap from the other day at , hm, think it was f1.8

the focus tracking in servo on the 5Dmk3 with this lens blew me away, I have never ever seen a sigma lens perform like this lens. the 85 is ok but it cant compete with the 70-200 in servo and i would put this 35mm in the same category of the 70-200 for its tracking accuracy. very impressed so far

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Which external mic for Canon DSLR?

Thanks all. I went with the Olympus LS-3 recorder, no syncing, no fuss, just EPICLY better sound than any of the other on camera mics, I can control everything, including stereo-spread. HIGHLY recommended for handheld amatur-video.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Mark II Spec List [CR2]
« on: February 19, 2013, 03:04:56 PM »
I don't really believe that the noise performance would be that much better than the current 7d. They went down on res compared to the 5d2 with the 1dX and up in sensor size to be better than the 1d4, the 5d3 has the same res as the 5d2 and still is only better over 1600/3200 iso. So increasing the mp from 18 to 24 on an aps-c sensor doesn't read killer high iso performance for me. MP still sells....

"What the 6d should have been" are we
Somehow missing the fact that the 6d is full frame and the better FF is called 5d3 and the better 5d3 is called 1d X.

The 7d mk2 is a fast camera with advanced AF, sits
Between the 5d3 and the 1dx like the original 7d did between the mk4 and the 5d2.

I would live to see a aps-c with the 61 o
Pt AF, pretty much covering the whole VF, lol.

If it's a 50 or 55 I don't care about, but if Canon decided to make a 50mm f1.4 L and it was the size and weight of the 85 1.2 I don't care. I care about them matching the Zeiss f1.4 (which is VERY high up on my list now as I love 50mm) with the AF of the current 50 L.

Canon needs a good 50. Seeing the samples from the Zeiss makes me very excited about it, can I live with MF? Not so sure, I mean, I can shoot a lot with a 50(55) mf, but there's a lot of things I would love to shoot with that IQ, but needing AF.

And to own both the 50 L and the Zeiss 55 f1.4 is an option, but not when I also want a 24-70, since I don't cr@p money...

This is so not great news for them.. I really like that it's in out there though. I would go mental if I found out someone was running around testing my gear before I bought it thinking it was brand new. I could buy a demo-product, but not when it's full retail and nothing is said about it. Really dissapointing stuff..

I can't wait to try this! It looks awesome! If it had AF I would def get one..

I wish it was sealed and that they used white print, because the yellow look cheap and ugly.... Is the canon-version white white prnt perhaps ;D

.. And nothing about the 35 L II, well it's only rumored several times a year for the last better part of a decade.

Does that mean I should turn it off if I never use zone and all 61?

No need to turn it off, but if left on it's not doing anything for you...

Thanks a lot! I was a bit surprised by this, lol. Oh well, the 1dx hardly ever misses anything  for me anyway  ;D

« on: February 13, 2013, 02:02:55 PM »
Really? I thought iTR also worked with 4 and 8 expanded, at least the color tracking?

Nope - 61-pt auto and Zone AF only.  See p.95 of the manual.

Wow... So I haven't even tried color-tracking at all? That is weird because with the 1dx and same settings as the 5d3 with 4 point expansion the 1dx tracks waaay better, and I'm not sure the 50 L benefits from the higher drive power from the bigger battery...

Does that mean I should turn it off if I never use zone and all 61?

I have my camera normally in Av mode with a set shutter speed I don't want to go longer than, but I LOVE the recall function , I have set the AElock button to recall because I use af-on to start af operation so they're right next to each other. With normal Av I have my au servo set up to normal movement with no expansion etc, case 1. And on the ae lock button I have the camera set up for fast erratic motion with every setting, faster shutter , actually smaller shutter to give the af a bit more help, 4 expansion, customised case 6 etc. that way I can shoot EVERYTHING without taking the eye off my viewfinder, so all the things I had to change to switch between fast action and more
Normal movement in the menus I can now have active by moving my thumb 5 mm! Best thing ever! I also ha r one of the front custom buttons to switch to one shot when needed. It speeds up the shooting process from 3 minutes to a split second.

I usually say if you see me without the 1d X, it wasn't me. It goes everywhere I go, even if it's a trip to the grocery store, and why not ?
