Perhaps someone here can shed some light on the rumored 46 megapixel camera that was supposed to be announced at Photokina. Just got off their website and there was apparently no announcement of any kind that I could find of such a camera yet we still have the story here at the CR forum....did they not do any type of announcement at Photokina??? Just askingThanks, my mistake....just got em all mixed up!
It wasn't Photokina. It was a different show called PhotoPlus that is supposed to happen soon (sometime in October) in New York.
I called Henry's Toronto downtown store last Wednesday. The rep said as Canon Canada requested, the initial batch of 1DXs will directly go to CPS member. Non-CPS member, even placed their pre-order in mid-March will (probably) have to wait until after the Olympics (mid-August) timeframe.Not sure I understand the relation to the CPS situation. I am a CPS member and I called them and spoke directly with them and they told me in 'NO UNCERTAIN TERMS' that being a CPS member AT ANY LEVEL, would not expedite getting a 1DX!!!!
I will be in Katmai in late August to shoot bears...I always take the biggest lens that I have with me, my 500.....but I also take my 100-400 along with my extenders. I have gotten a lot of great shots with my 100-400 with the 1.4x and have been plenty close to the bears on many occasions to get great shots....having said that if I had an 800 I would never go there without it, with or without the extender....on the MK IV that gives you a lot of distance. Really depends on where you go and just how close you can get to the bears....I really prefer to be able to get within 50 yds of the bears....makes for some awesome stuff!Lets hope the 200-400 f4 is one of the len's announced. I need one for October as im off to the forest to shoot bears, with a camera not a gun.
400 + 1.4x is not enough for close ups at a safe distance of bears in the wild.
You need 700mm or more in glass.
