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
What should do if i want to use both of my flashes outside with my 7d ?
135mm f/1.8L IS USM
No. The upcoming announcement is from Canon, not Sigma
Ya, it's Canon - they'll be releasing a135mm f/4 IS.
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...
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.
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!!
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.
Years ago, I was taught that the 100mm lens was the best portrait instrument. Now, it seems, this 1.2 seems to be accepted as the lens for faces, softening the background. Well.... which is it? 100 or 50? I am assuming a full frame configuration.... Would not my 100 f2.8 do great for portraits?
And please, no snarky replies. It is really unnecessary to be superior.
