I've lurked and read the forums for a long time now... Don't often log on to post. I did today to let Wilmark know that he is a horrible person.

Browsing in the lens section of the Canon Refurb store today I noticed an interesting paradox.
Currently in the market for a teleconverter, the 1.4 II is listed at $349 in the Refurb outlet:
However, the same product - brand new - can be had for less at B&H:
MacBook screens tend to be pretty color accurate if I recall as well.
They aren't and have never been anything close to color accurate in comparison with industry standard color correct displays. (I have not checked this in about 5 months) In fact they usually have a hyper contrast and over driven vibrance that gives them an incredible 'pop' which throws off what your images will look like on other monitors and in print. It's like putting some cool effects on your images that will not show the same on anything other than very similar equipment, that isn't good for consistency.
90% of all visitors of DXOmark have NO clue how DXO is measuring sensor performance.This is EXACTLY why Canon has an enormous marketing problem on their hands.
and from the 10% who know, only half understand why they measure that way.
