I must sayin was impressed seriously with the 5d3, the only thing I didn't like because the 5d2 was better was IQ.. people needed to really try to say the 5d3 had better IQ! But it has marginal better color, and less sharp, same res, same noise under 1600 and less DR. I'mpI'm pretty sure everybody expected and iq upgrade like the one from 5dc to 5d2...

The got ONE camera right since way back, the 1dx. They need to make better lower priced cameras to compete at all the  next five years. They may keep a lot of customers but won't get any new ones...

Used this type on and old tamron, every single time I took it off or put it one it slipped and dropped onto the front element. Useless. The canon ones I place to one side and lift up or down on the other side, gripping the firmly before and after lifting. But then again, when was the last time I used a lens cap? 6-7 years?

Why didn't you just aim the lens down?

Because then the lenscap flew sideways off a small bridge and was never seen again :D

Hi guys!

Anyone had any experience they like to share about this portable light?

How much power does it give over two speedlites? I need a simple and light setup that packs a punch. Will be used for portraits, not sports but also need to freeze some action like kids at play.
Can I shoot at 1/1000s and have any power? Tired of speedlites ::)
Thanks :D

How many of you guys here have upgraded to the Canon 1DX from the 1D MKIV and never regretted it?And why?
Thanks.

I bought it and sent the 1D X back. The camera has many problems. For one thing I do not think it is natural to be able to take pictures at such a high ISO. God made noise to be viewed as noise. We shouldn't tamper with that. Also I miss the 3mp drop from the old 1Ds III. When pixel peeping at 300x on my 30" monitor I can really start to see the lack of resolution and this bugs me. The high frame rate sounds great in theory, and the improved AF system but together they create  more work. Several years ago it was very easy to sort out the non keepers from the keepers, they were obvious. With the 1D X I would have to sort through hundreds of near identical pictures that are equally in focus. I could have lived with one of these problems, but taking all of them together I decided to send the 1D X back.

I always likes a good funny :D

The mag ratio of the 24-70 is pretty cool. My girlfriend only have the 100 L for food photography, she's always saying she wants a lens that can do a bit more, maybe this is the lens to swap the 100 L for...

I'm not getting excited anymore. The two lenses will be 200-400 and the 24-70 f4... and you can buy them two years after the release of the 32 f4 in 2018...

The 35, 135 sells in serious numbers so why update? Man, those lenses must have been crazy good for the time when released! Wish Canon would release lenses so good it would take 20 years for it to even a point to update, hint 50 L does not quite to that...

Thanks Neuro! Now for the real question, why in the name of mother did they change that! I really miss the old way.

Also when using the ec I can't really see what's going when wider spread than +-3.. is this the same with the 5d3? I can't remember, but thought that used the old way...

Let me guess... the real one that hits the street will be f/4 and have no IS.

Oh, and cost $2,499.

 :-X

And arrives in 2016..

Thanks.

You've been asking these one-line quiz questions about the 1DX since July, without ever responding to or thanking the people who replied. In August, you even asked where you could get a screen protector for the 1DX.  ???

Just buy the damned camera!

I thought I recognized the nick! LOL !

And yeah, just buy the damn camera already!!

I'll keep it very short, because I could ramble on about this Neo Anderson of cameras for days.

I have neverever even for one second regretted the upgrade. If one thought the mk4 was a big upgrade over the 1d3, you'd be blown away over this upgrade.

Why I love it: Fullframe with superior fps AND the best af ever, not just 90% good, but in many cases 100% hitrate.
The layout, the vf, the grip and feel. But most of all the metering and general image quality. Noise is almost not visible at normal size print at any value under 25600 iso.

What I don't like is poor battery, keep at least two! The new iso button.., too small and weirdly placed. And from what I have found, or not found, the ability to spread the bracketed images on the ev scale with the small wheel and move the whole scale with the rear wheel, like I could on the mk4.

Very small minuslist and about battery, if you hold the button down in a soccermatch I've seen people get 5000 images on a battery but I get around 1100 images, and compare that to the mk3 where I got 3000 easily and you see my point.

1d x THE perfect camera for me, you get so many fantastic moments you just don't get with anything else. Yes one can time the perfect moment and not "need" 12 fps, but not if the AF can't keep up, and with 12 fps you have 12 perfect moments you have never seen in just one second, pretty frikkin' awesome..

So it's just the way it is and changed from the 1d4?

Thanks anyway!

What if they followed the new trend with weight loss, then this lens could be VERY light. That is worth something to someone, say,6d owners.

It's still an insane idea by canon... I think a few lenses must be updated first and that the timing is the stupid thing here. Seems canon care more about getting people to buy a fullframe than keeping them there...
