I ended up getting a 14mm Rokinon lens for $300 from B&H, and an 85mm 1.2 lens for $1600 from canon refurbished.  And now I'm staying far away from canonpricewatch.com until I recover.  I'm hoping next year will bring an updated 100-400mm lens.  Maybe for black friday next year.
I was able to get the Rokinon, but have been really wanting the 85 1.2L and I missed it when I got home from work....crazy bummed!

Canon General / Re: "Pure photographic experience"
« on: November 06, 2013, 02:45:02 PM »
I guess "pure photography" might be something like William Henry Fox Talbot's idea of the "Pencil of Nature" – images drawn by nature with the photographer being just a servant to the sun. But I suspect that's not what we are talking about here.

If its retro we're after, lets go for some real innovation.

A button/switch on every camera that engages the sensor. If you forget to turn it on, you can shoot pictures the whole day, but not one will be recorded. And, while we're at it, let's make sure that the button "slips" once and awhile and even though you think you hit it, it won't record any pictures. That way we can resurrect the "pure" film experience of forgetting to check the rewind knob to verify that there is film in the camera and that the take up spool has actually engaged the film.

How about separating the ISO display from the actual ISO on the sensor, so that you have to select both. That way, you can recreate the "pure" experience of putting ASA 100 film in the camera and forgetting to change the meter dial from Tri X.

Or maybe, there can be a random feature where all the images on the card appear as though someone inadvertently opened the back of the camera without rewinding the film.

While were at it, let's extend the experience to Lightroom. Maybe every once and awhile when you upload your images, several of them will have chemical-like blotches on them or be undeveloped in the center, so you can recreate the "pure" experience of film sticking together on the developing reels.

Maybe have shots taken at ISO 100 have the same noise as ISO 100,000 to simulate the experience of someone developing the film using Dektol.

Better yet, sometimes the entire upload can be blank, simulating the experience of accidentally pouring in the fixer first.

I'll think I'll stick with today's photography instead of some retro "pure" experience.

I think I have done several of these!
kinda miss the smell of all those chemicals!

I like it…and I kinda get it….oh well.  I have a thing for the X100s and would like Canon to make something similar; retro, FF, no video (I absolutely have no use for it…,that’s just me though), and would accept my L glass.  But I also agree with many,..this may be a marketing ploy to scoop up buyers.  This will be an interesting thread to watch over the next day or so…but,….I like it

The new EOS-1 body is amazing and a big step over the 1D X. I like it.
Am I just not reading this right?,…are you referring to the current EOS 1Dx or a different 1 series body out in the wild somewhere?
