EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Is the 7D MK II Really Selling Well?

I have no way of knowing but there are lots of rebates and free bees being offered so I doubt about it selling that well.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 1dc = Free beer

Thank you, I will be super careful from now on. It was a proper large restaurant and the kids very friendly so I never imagined I should be careful. But I totally agree with being cautious.

Besides 1dc (or 1dx) being a better camera than 5d3 is not the reason why I was shooting with it. I was in Thailand filming a movie and 1dc was being used as second camera while Alexia was the main camera. Shoots were mostly limited to daylight and the Canon would be free for me for my personal photography at night so did not bother carrying 5d3. :)

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 7D Mark II Owners first thoughts

I so so respect Canon for the improved weather sealing. They did not have to do this because the general customer would not know it or pay extra for it. This shows that they want to ensure their customers have a reliable camera. Admiration!

Funny story to share. I was in the walking street at Pattaya with my 1dc and 85mm trying to get photos and went for dinner.
The waiter was fascinated by the camera, started playing with it and soon the manager joined in. I ended up teaching them back button focusing. They googled the camera and were so impressed that they sent me beers on the house.
hahaha.

Thanks for posting these fun pictures. Here is one more. She kept waiting for a fish to appear behind her and did not notice that I took her photo.

I'm sorry, but I'm far from the only person who was rather ticked off by Maeda's comments regarding their sensor technology. Even the interviewer was surprised by the response.

And there's the real issue perhaps, if the Guy at the Top has convinced himself that Canon are still the leaders in Sensor tech, then it's a lost cause until someone with a better grip on reality takes the wheel. Wether he's a "Bold faced liar" or simply being disingenuous, it's as jrista said, simply "sad".

And I'm reasonably sure Maeda San is quite capable of defending his honour & good name without members of CR attempting crucifixion of other CR members in his defence, especially when he's clearly lost the plot when it comes to Canon's current abilities to develop the cutting edge tech required for Canon to continue to be the Market Leaders.

And it's just as sad that I agree with most pundits regards Canon stooping to using Sony Sensors in their top of the line DSLR cameras, especially when Nikon does, Phase One does, Hasselblad does, Pentax does, Olympus does & even Apple does (I know, it's not a dslr it's a phone), but you get the picture.

And those companies having used Sony Sensors seems to have given those companies a leg up regards Camera Sales.

If Canon produced a 1D body with the current Sony 50MP sensor embedded, I & I hazard a guess, a huge amount of others would be on it like flies on ..... Honey, and the fact that it was a Sony designed sensor & not a Canon designed sensor wouldn't have an iota of consideration in my purchase nor I believe would most others care who made the sensor, just like I don't care who made the Camera strap.

And jrista, if at times your views appear to pee some disgruntled CR members of from time to time, just move on to the stuff I believe most of the non disgruntled CR members (the majority i feel) look forward to reading from you, your technical ability and knowledge, and don't worry about Maeda San, I'm reasonably sure in his position he's been called a lot worse than a "bold faced liar".

Yes Edward you are right. Jrista gets a lot of unnecessary rude comments.

Will the Sigma 150-600 sports not be good enough for once a year Africa trips for the kind of photos on website?

Now I am nervous and feel like stopping the sale. :(

Why not wait and rent one, or buy one and return it if its not up to expectations.

Unfortunately the 200-400 is not for rent in my country and to get it in Africa becomes very expensive.

Two things:
1. I never dispute the quality of the lens. God forbid! But I use it once a year and can't justify it.
2. The 1.4x is a pain to use. One has to wait for the lens to 'cool down' before engaging it or it over exposes. Many times shots are lost or over exposed because of this. I think the ease of having the entire zoom range available without engaging the extender (150-600) would be easier.

I am sure you will love the lens combo with the 7D.

I appreciate your comment much. Am concerned too at times. :)

I am very curious as to how that can be. As far as I understand, the metering is controlled by the camera, and switching from 1x to 1.4x provides an immediate, real-time input to the camera's sensor to allow it to meter for the next shot. Considering the fact that cameras can adjust metering within fractions of seconds, being unable to expose correctly due to a rapid change in magnification seems quite unlikely.

But it happened to me so so many times. Please see the lion photos I have posted in this thread. Am baffled too.

My lens will be at Adorama used department soon. Any new reviews of the Sigma? I need to replace the Canon.
Btw I still get up in the middle of the night sweating that I made a mistake.

Lovely Keith. But I was thinking we should limit this thread to 'others'.
