+1But in general, I see no reason to go OCD nuts on how you clean lenses. They don't get THAT dirty anyway and I use mine is all kinds of environments. The worst issues are usually finger smudges with dirty fingers that contain oils.+1, some people go way overboard on this stuff.
+1,..I agree. I know a lot of users are wanting some video improvements/specs,…but I would like to see improved IQ for stills. Over the past 7-8 years I haven’t used video at all,…that’s just me. I had a 7D and sold it. It was a light hungry body and noisy as the ISOs were pushed. I loved everything else about it though. I’m very interested what come out!
I hope the 7D successor comes without any video-recording capabilities whatsoever. A lean and mean STILLS machine.
+1Get the feeling it's not easy to make money with photography these days. Those who shoot as their main job seem to drive Yugos from what I see personally and those who shoot AND sell products and build up a giant web presence and following seem to live in nice homes in La Jolla, CA or the fancy part of CT .It's definitely tough out there for all but the very top photographers, at least in terms of making six figures, plus. I am in awe of people who do nothing but product reviews and seem to live quite well in terms of farms, horses, and trips to tropical islands, not to mention any names...but I guess a percent or two of big white purchases adds up
The reality is that stock is
all butdead and that was a huge source of income in the past. It's been supplanted by workshops, books, videos, and affiliate links.
They say that if you want to make money from photography, you need to teach photography, not do photography. Scott Kelby has done rather well with this model.
Though I thought in the past that 14-24 could serve me well, I am happy with my 16-35 f/4 IS. For me 16mm is wide enough and with fit for my 77m CPL and ND filters+1! Just ordered one to replace my 17-40L...cant wait!
Please post pictures as soon as you can.YES! Anxious to see how this lens performs!
