Lenses / Re: Safari 300 2.8 Mkii or 200-400 1.4x

Is the 200-400 not an obvious choice? I do not understand the question.

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 16-35 F/4L IS -- Reviews are trickling in...

For those testing the IS, are you half-pressing the shutter (or pressing AF-ON if you use BBF) and then letting the IS system operate for ~0.5 s to fully stabilize the image?  I've often found that if you simply press the shutter on an IS lens, you get a shot that's not much better than no IS.  Here are some tests I did with the 100L.

Thx much for this.

I've been holding out for Canon's supposed 50mm IS and possibly even an 85 IS.

We're over half way into 2014, I just may have to buy glass from a different manufacturer :/

Any word?

16-35 f/4 IS makes it the year of the lens!

Interesting fact you point out and I am sure it has value.

BUT you must consider real life situation in Africa. The exhausted photographer at end of day empties out several cards (while doing other things like charging so many batteries) he may not have energy to low level format cards. Just a quick format and get ready for next day.

Yes, if the difference was more that 5 photos before buffering or more than half second before buffering, I would take the time out to low level format.

Technical Support / Re: HOW TO USE THE NEW BATTERIES ?

Dear friend Surapon. Unlike wine, the batteries deteriorate over the years, and keep them without use does not prevent them from deteriorating. Specifically, the Ni-MH batteries should be stored discharged, to prevent premature aging. The exception of the great ENELOOP, which has a special chemical composition for longer life.

As you have 4 batteries, you can number each one and rotate to all be in use. If you think you can take months without using a particular battery, keep it uncharged to preserve it.

Wine goes bad too without proper storage!

You must rotate all 4 batteries. If you have the possibility of putting 2 away, then you do not really need them. In that case, next time, buy only 2 and replace them when they die with fresh batteries.
