Why is there no photozone review on this lens yet? I have checked their site every day for the last three weeks...

How I see it is that everything I take needs to either fit in or hang from the bag, or around my neck. That probably rules out a full-size tripod. On past trips, I've carried a smaller one around, which seemed too much a compromise, taking up much-needed space in my pack and still too small for eye-level shots.
The 1DS III is my workhorse, I've put a lot of miles on them over the last four, nearly five, years. In most all situations, the results are equal to the 1DX. It's the 7D that I would likely leave behind for a second 1DS.
I'd like to think I'll find uses for the reflector, even if it will only add a touch of light to a small space, say, five to ten feet away. It does fit in my bag, so long as I don't carry the laptop with me.
One more thing I plan to take is a hand-held light meter. I know it seems redundant in this day of more sophisticated technology, but I've found it most valuable in getting that shot in a confusing mix of light, especially if I use my 7D for flash.
Standard, I agree about the flash, since I learned most of my skills from a bunch of existing light enthusiasts. And, given today's technology (the 1DX is awesome), I don't think I'll have any trouble with anything up to about ISO 6400.
I haven't yet heard any comments yet about my carrying along a small reflector. If I can fit it in my bag, I probably will, as it can make light a little more available.
Great picture! One thing I would do: position the model slightly to the right, so her head is not intersecting the window sill...
It was on his canonfieldreviews website, which is defunct now. Mirrored here:
Ole Jorgen Lioden once did a review on the 7D and referred to use in the arctic. In that review, he compared to his 1Ds MkIII and 5D MkIIs and 40Ds used by others. He commented that the 40D and 5D MkII were apt to failing in the extreme temperatures, but his 1Ds MkIII and the 7D both coped without problems (he even dropped his 1DsMkIII in the Arctic Ocean). For the actual review, he used the 7D in deep snow, where it was actually covered in snow. I would therefore say that the 1D X shouldn't have any problems, as it is at least as weather sealed as the 1Ds MkIII and moreso than the 7D.
I work at Sony Electronics.
Yea we've got FF Mirrorless already.
We're often times the first to market or very early to market. I remember announcing the world's lightest laptop 6 months before the first macbook air. Even after the launch of the AIR our's was still the thinnest and lightest but did anyone know haha? I remember carrying the world's first OLED TV to a convention in Las Vegas. We never advertised it though, the images were stunning and the design was sleek. 2 years later Samsung made a huge TV ad campaign and without saying it made it sound like they were the first to make the OLED TVs. And their TV was IDENTICAL to our aesthetically, they basically took our tv and rebadged it as a samsung. I think that's my biggest frustration with this company. We don't advertise anything and unless you're really looking for a product you would never know we made it. I'm so tired of watching great products get launch with zero visibility.
Just wanted to release some steam about the biggest issue that irks me about Sony. Other than that the company is awesome, they treat us real well, we get good discounts and the work culture here is great (I knew a few people who worked at Samsung that we're very happy).
