lol...Rusty, you are one funny dude!  ;D


You think that's funny, check out what I changed my signature to today!   Bwaa Ha Ha!!   ;D


Funny...and I'm sure we would all agree that whatever Surapon said, it surely would be very respectful, friendly, polite, and helpful! :)

That is true. But I find you very helpful and polite as well!

And yes, if one did feel the need to have one shot, this is a great firmware update. Very thoughtful of Canon.
I am telling myself: If Canon thought there was a need to do this, then one shot must be 'sharper'.

Now I understand. Clearly understand. Thx much ALL!!!

However I am very surprised that servo will not focus on still objects. Everyone is saying that. But that has not been my experience so far. Or perhaps I have not noticed it. Hmmm.

Eml: You not only photograph beautifully but write beautifully as well.

Thanks for all the replies. The penny still fails to drop. It will one day, I hope. Currently either I do not know something or brain cells not working.
Perhaps soon I will have an 'ah ha' moment. Waiting.

sanj....your wrote "either i don't know something or"...could it be that you don't know that one shot is better(sharper)than servo for "non action" shots?   I'm sure you know this but I just thought i would point it out just in case. (i'm sure you do know because i've seen your awesome images)

the main reason for wanting the set up steve describes is to quickly and more easily switch from servo to one shot by having the buttons right next to each other.  ("af-on button" and "*" button)   (servo and one shot)

Northstar: No I did not know that 'one shot' is sharper than servo for still objects. I thought is was about getting focus, not the way one got focus. And I believe that once I get focus and I remove the thumb from the back focus, I am as good as 'one shot'. Am I wrong?

Having said all of this, I am positive that I am missing something... I will get it one day and go 'yeyyyy'.

Realize that the safari will end but the camera will remain with you. So choose the best camera, and not a camera just for this trip. Go with latest technology and select 5d3.

:( I do not understand. I have been using back button focus for a long while now and it seems fast enough. On the top lcd I leave it on servo focus.
What am I missing here? In any case I have the 1dx set exposure on the focus point.

Would love to understand this post, I constantly want to improve my technique.

Is there any evidence to presume that it will have similar IQ as the Zeiss? Any reviews/data? Or charts? (which I do not understand anyways...)

Very nice. Makes me trust the 2X more...

You do not necessarily need to be famous to have assistants. You just need to hire...

The 300-600 MkII supertele lenses were something like 18 months from development announcement to launch.  Hopefully Canon can do better...

Canon did have earthquakes, tsunamis and melting nuclear power plants to contend with during the creation of the Mark II series as well. Gotta take that into account. ;)

True.

253
Thx. But a member already beat you to this and that thread going strong. :)

2020 is getting closer every moment.  ;D

Oh, I thought this thread was about the EF 800, not the 7Dmk2... ;D

Epic!
