Okay, I know this is going to come off as assholish to sensitive people, but I don't mean it that way, I'm just really curious why some people do reviews like this.
I have a feeling people like to hear themselves talk or see themselves on video. This review could have easily been done as a simple web page or even PDF. We are coming to a time when the bandwidth we use may be regulated or charged per usage, so it only makes sense to do it in web page format to reach the maximal audience. Secondly, a written review could be read quicker, as well as if you were only interested in a certain aspect, you wouldn't have to sit through the whole video, you could just scroll to the appropriate section. With a video, I either have to suffer through the whole thing, or just not watch it and then miss out on important points. If I'm at work, I can't watch thirty minutes of video, but I can sure read a written review.
Could someone enlighten me? To me, I feel as if you're doing a review "for the people", so to speak, then you should do it to "reach the people" as easily as possible. To give an extreme example, if I want to educate people globally about proper hygiene, I'm not going to make a 4K video, because most of the people who need educating about hygiene wouldn't even have television. Again, a bit extreme as an example, but just trying to drive home the point and see if anyone could explain to me why these types of reviews are unfortunately so common.
I didn't know there is video feature on 5D
Ok... let's say my pocketbook started suggesting some chapter options... like the 300mm f4 is... a little over a grand... 420mm at
And I save nearly nine grand....
The IQ of the 100-400L is a bit better than the 300/4 + 1.4x, and gives the convenience of a zoom and not having to muck about with a TC. I'd recommend picking up a used 100-400 – that way, when you eventually give into temptation (you know you will, right??), you won't lose much when you sell the 100-400L because you're not using it anymore.
