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.

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. ;)


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


2020 is getting closer every moment.  ;D

In the big picture, what does this actually mean? Lesser cameras being sold? Camera business moving more towards online stores? What?

nor on mine, and I'm known to play with my zoom ring

What's the point, if your lens doesn't extend??   :o
Priceless :)

hahahhahahaha. To OP: All is good. Keep playing. No seriously there is no issue with your lens.

Canon pls hurry and pls do not price it very high. Pls.

There is no reason to use Av mode for anything...
"No Reason" is a mighty big place...a touch dogmatic?

On a 1-Series you can turn off modes.  Primarily I like to work either in Manual or Av, so the rest are disabled. So when I toggle the mode control, all I'll get is either M or Av.

Last night I shot a swimming & diving championship event at a major swim stadium. The light levels vary slightly from end top end of the main pool, and Av is perfect is this situation. To achieve max shutter speed, I'm locked on f/2.8. Only the ISO or exposure compensation get adjusted. Earlier in the week I shot the final dress rehearsal of a stage production of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. Naturally the lighting was all over the shop, as it should be for a stage production. Av was perfect. Track & Field athletics? Av please, especially under lights at night. In fact, just about any dynamic shooting situation where there are either subtle or substantial lighting variations, Av works for me.

Works for me too. Perfectly. If I want to override it I use exposure compensation.

All other things being equal, sharpness is a result only off proper focus and appropriate shutter.

Nothing to do with how exposure is calculated/set.
