Anyone have any idea when the 100-400 II will be in stock again at B&H or Adorama?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: I just want a stills camera.

I agree!, I have used a T1i, 7D, 6D, 1DX, and now currently use a 5D III. Not once have I used the video function in any of these cameras.  Now,…that’s just me and the needs I want of my equipment…Canon has some absolutely fantastic video features in their bodies…I just don’t use them.  The video function will have to just sit there patiently until the next owner wishes to explore and use it.  If there was a Canon body with better stills functions and no video capability…I would probably have it in my bag…..but cost/production reasons, probably not feasible, and that is OK.

Lenses / Re: 16-35F4 L IS, Any good?

I have had a couple of 17-40 copies and I have had several of both the 16-35 f2.8L vI and vII. I never liked any of them. But the 16-35 f4L IS I have is simply brilliant. I actually sold my Zeiss 21mm f2.8, because the 16-35 f4L IS made it redundant. I have not heard anything but praise for this lens, so if you're not happy with the two copies you have seen, it must be something wrong somewhere in the chain.
I also upgraded from the 17-40, which I used for many years.  My copy of the 16-35 is fantastic straight out of the box….fantastic lens!

Enjoy the warm weather!. I'm tired of winter and hoping for warmer temperatures. Where I am at, we still have a lot of snow. My snowblower broke and I had to buy a new one, so I hope that means the snow will end, and we will see an early spring!

Lenses / Re: $2,000 14-24 f2.8, vs $1,800 16-35 f2.8 IS, vs $3,000 11-24 f4

+1 on the 16-35 f4. 77mm thread and its amazingly sharp! It's a fantastic lens! If I need more than 16mm, I'll rent.

I'm glad they're focusing more on photography again and less on video for the 5Ds/5DSr.

What will become of the 5D Mark III?  It will remain an excellent camera capable of delivering terrific images.

This camera is obviously for landscape and studio work. Remember that canon isn't a body...its a system.  With the latest L lenses being sharper than nikon, and 50 mp... We should see some amazing results. If the rumors are true about lack of video features..that further confirms this is a landscape and studio machine. No one uses even 1600 ISO in studio or landscapes. Why all the fuss. Wait for the 5d4 to complain about iso when those specs arrive.
I'm very interested, very interested!
