If the OP wants the best IQ only, then the OP needs an 8x10 view camera with the best lenses and best wet darkroom or killer digital back-end.  Cuz it's all about media size, right?

This [CR2] rumor said that it will arrive within the next 12 months.

Well, now it's been 15 months.  :'( I couldn't be more annoyed.

Last time I checked, this is STILL CanonRumors.com

Everything you read on the net is true, so what gives with the 12-24????

What should do if i want to use both of my flashes outside with my 7d ?

With the 600 on the 7D you can fire/trigger the 430.  If you can afford another 600, also buy the new ST-E3-RT transmitter.  Sell the 430.  I have three 600s and the ST-E3-RT, and it's rock solid relaiblily inside and out.

I have no experience with your third party flash units.

A "big" lens announcement?
Could it be a "big" lens announcement or perhaps the announcement of a new "big" lens.
I'm just aching with anticipation...


Yes, is it a big lens, or a big announcement about a lens?

Mr Sigma - go for a 400/4.
All the other lens fl/apertures combinations are covered by the big boys.

EF 400mm 4.0 DO IS

The Canon 400/4 DO is very expensive and is slightly mediocre optically.
I was thinking that Sigma could wisely ignore the 10 year old DO concept and give us a conventional sharp wide open 400/4.




Gets you a 200/2 and a 400/4 with no future AF compatibility worries and high resale if you need; all for $6500 USD.

You can see my gear list in my sig.  I'd take the 5D3 and the 35L.  I recommend a 600rt flash purchase over the 16-35 if you don't have a flash.  I think you'll take some people (wife) pictures and the 600 is great for fill inside and outside, and bounce indoors.  Have a nice trip too.

Lenses / Re: AF dead on my EF 200 2.8L - thoughts?
« on: August 24, 2013, 04:33:00 PM »
The AF died in a 200/2.8L I owned once.  I bought it new and it died a week later.

The 6D won the EISA best advanced DSLR of the year..... A category that the D600 would have been considered in... i imagine it was selected by people who know what they are talking about!!

We're up to the G16 now.  Where does the time go?

I'd say most of the M bashers in this thread have never used an M.

And here come the posts about back-focus issues in 3, 2, 1.

Many claimed 50L is soft. I like my at f1.4 to f1.6. Photo below shot with JPEG straight out from camera. Only resized to post here.

And that is justification for the 50L right there. With te 50 1.8 it's only really good around f/2.2 or above, the 50 1.4 prob around f/2 but if you actually want decent quality with nice bokeh at f/1.4 - 1.8 you're gonna need the 50L. Oh and it wont break so easily either.


I've owned two copies of the 50/1.8, and a singe copy of the 50/1.4.
