very nice. If I didn't have to pay the mortgage and car loan, I'd order now.  Meanwhile, I'll buy a few lottery tickets and if I win........

Sell the car.

Every frame in focus.....hmmm

At that distance with the ef 14mm f2.8 L, I'd guess all frames would be in focus, so the statement made is probably true.

Wow!  Really F6.3 being marketed as a sports lens?  Maybe on the planet Venus.  Rarely is F6.3 enough to stop sports action.

If you're that close to the sun, an f16 lens will do.

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Deal: EOS M w/22mm f/2 STM $249

Btw, for those wondering how good the EOS M image quality is, here's a small album of photos I've taken with it.

Half was taken with the 18-55 kit lens, the other half with the 22mm. No photoshop, just lightroom adjustments and B&W conversion, except for the tree shot, I used a filter for that one.

Is that Danny Trejo?

United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland
I find this a bit confusing, UK or Republic of Ireland?

Both.

The part about loving it because good focus is rare and hard to achieve is a masterpiece in spin doctoring. :)
GUILTY as charged ;D

Yeah, sure, but when it hits, it's so worth it.

(will be 14 soon, deciding between the 16-35/4L IS and TS-E 17/4L)

Buy both, why decide?

I think putting 4k in a sub 4,000 camera would cause canon to become its own competition with their cinema line of cameras.
They don't want to cannibalize the sales of their expensive cinema cameras.

That's a common strategy, and the companies that have used that strategy all have one thing in common:  their sales were cannibalized by their competition, instead of by themselves.

Panasonic and Sony are going after Canon video shooters.  If Canon won't give us 4K, or even sharp 1080p, then we will get it elsewhere.  I am about to buy a GH4 for my video work, even though I won't be able to use my L lenses with it.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 5D Mark IV To Feature 4K Video?
« on: July 05, 2014, 12:04:14 AM »

And, I have no idea whether adding and upping the video features on a DSLR increases the cost or helps pay for the R&D for features that still photographers are coming to love (e.g., live view).

Live View comfortably predated video.

My 50D had live view.

I think its too soon for 5D3 refresh but this would be my list for me to buy a 5d4.

Stills Side

1. Blinky AF point
2. Linked AF point Spot Metering
3. 1/250th Sync speed bump. (1/500 would be even more sweet)
4. Built in RT transmitter
5. 7 FPS bump and improved buffer for dual card writing. (pitiful if you use the SD card slot currently.)
6. Dual CF or SD, just pick one or the other.
7. Add dual custom buttons like the 1Dx besides the lens mount.
8??. Did anyone notice the second curtain sync C-fn through PC sync missing in the mk3? I was positive this was on my 5Dc or the 5D2...
9. Make the Rate button do something else beside's rate and protect. :/
10. Slight screen bump in resolution/size and/or Touchscreen with optional toggle.
11. Lastly, Any ISO/IQ/Resolution bump is nice but these other features are much more important to

Numbers 1 and 2 would be great.  Your number 4 item is odd, who here would want dual SD only?  I'd venture to say most, if not all, users with cameras at this level are well invested in CF cards.

Testing my willpower ATM.

Does anyone know the diameter of what size lens can fit in there?  Mainly I'm curious if I can use this with a 200 f/2.0 for that nice ring light effect on portraits.

200/2?  Umm, it won't fit.

Best part on that page:

EF 200-400 f/4L IS
This seems to be a lens a lot of people would like, I just don’t think a lot of those people would pony up the $4K-$5K it would cost. I haven’t heard any rumor about such a lens being in development.

15
I'm surprised at the better than expected prices.  The 16-35/4 would make a great family travel lens for me.
