Lenses / Re: Introducing the Canon EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II

The price is a whole lot better than I thought it would be considering what Canon did with the 70-200 MII and the 24-70 MII.  I have an original 100-400 but it has only been used a handful of times, if I used it a lot more I would definitely be tempted to upgrade.  Nice job Canon... took you long enough  ;D

On paper the spec's look really impressive, if it ends up being as good as it looks I imagine it may take a few sales away from the 1DX.  You could purchase 2 (1 for back up) and a very nice piece of glass for the amount of the 1DX.  I know the 1DX has some more features and better weather sealing but I don't think that will matter to a lot of potential buyers; will be interesting to see what happens.

EOS Bodies / Re: Are These The EOS 7D Mark II Specifications?

If these specs turn out to be true then this will be a great camera for sports shooters, curious as of to what the list price will end up being.

EOS Bodies / Re: Will the next xD cameras do 4k?

In regards to the 4K TV's you will definitely notice a difference between 4K and 1080P (HD).  I bought a Samsung 55" 9000 series a month ago and the details, clarity and color rendering is insane.  Know that the models you see in the stores are running a 4K demo from Samsung to promote the capabilities of the TV, at home viewing will be of slightly lesser quality but still stunning. 

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: EOS 5D Mark III Firmware 1.2.3 Available

If all of the feature requests are possible (the ones the 1DX are getting) maybe MagicLantern will be able to incorporate them... give it time.  Plus it's kind of hard to complain about something the camera never had in the first place yet you had no problem buying it.

HDR - High Dynamic Range / Re: Best HDR Software?

I prefer Photomatix Pro and I usually use the fussion settings to get a more natural looking HDR.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Mark II in 2014 [CR2]

I'd be really surprised if it got the 61pt AF system just because they want some seperation between the 7D and 5D MIII.  If they dumped all the latest tech in it and it just came down to one being one being full frame and one not then most would probably go for the cheaper 7D with more fps stealing sales from the 5D MIII, I just don't see them doing that.

EOS Bodies / Re: Safe to leave lens on camera?
« on: April 22, 2013, 12:52:02 PM »
I don't leave my lens on the camera body just becuase I've read a few stories where someone had their lens on their camera in their bag and they tripped and fell.  They didn't think much of it and when they went to grab their camera out of the bag the lens mount was broken.  Now I doubt that this is a wide spread problem and the lens mount seems very strong but it's just one of those freak things that I'd like to avoid.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D3 Firmware
« on: April 18, 2013, 02:06:23 PM »
I thought the firmware was also supposed address the issue of the AF points not staying lit during low light conditions or getting lost in shadows... didn't see any mention of that on the firmware description page.  I know there was comments made about it affecting the metering but still they said they were going to address the issue back in Spring 2012.

Lenses / Re: New 100-400 to Launch with EOS 7D Mark II [CR2]
« on: April 08, 2013, 01:46:17 PM »
Looking at their recent pricing strategy with the updated 70-200 2.8 and 24-70 2.8 I wouldn't be surprised to see the new 100-400 come in at $2,600-$3,100.  I bought the 70-200 2.8 MII (I did not have the MI version), when the 24-70 MII came out I didn't have funds available at the time to get the MI version and by the time I did they were gone so I waited till I had the funds and got the MII.  I currently have a 100-400 and use it once in a while and won't bother upgrading as mine works just fine and it is rarely used.  Had I already owned the MI versions of the other lenses I more than likely wouldn not have upgraded.

If those do end up being the specs I wouldn't be too surprised.  If they did add the dual slots and 61pt af then the only reason to get the 5DMIII would be for full frame, I think they want a little more seperation than that between the lines.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mark II - Light stain on a body!
« on: March 26, 2013, 12:19:54 PM »
Maybe try a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, those seem to work on everything.  Someone spray painted a friends car and it took it right off.  Please know I have never tried using a Magic Eraser on a camera body so it may do more harm than good, it is simply a suggestion. 

EOS Bodies / Re: Big megapixel camera?
« on: January 29, 2013, 01:30:17 PM »

I sure hope that they price the big MP camera is priced in line with the D800.  At $8-10K, it may be worth my while to switch.

I kind of doubt that because that is the 5D MIII price range, if they did then they would have to dumb down the features in order to not have the two compete with each other which I don't see Canon doing.  I wouldn't be surprised to see it possibly fall between the 5D MIII and the 1DX with the large MP but the specs of the 5D MIII.

Another thing to be aware of is some folks who bought from Ebay dealers reported getting a grey market product... not all of them but some of them.
