If Canon 11-24mm is true, it should be the best choice for me. Now I am happy with Samyang 14mm.

OS? Isn't that the widest optically stabilized lens anywhere?
Bring on the 24-70/2!
It’s noted that Sony has no interest in competing with Hasselblad or Phase One and that their medium format camera would be something “completely different”. Perhaps a compact MF system?
Sony is being quite aggressive in trying to find new markets in still cameras, and if the system is priced affordably for medium format, they could have a winner if this true.
If you take $790 and consider what that must pay for, it becomes a bit difficult to believe that this lens can compete with the Otus in any way.
(If memory serves me right) 10 lens elements, of which 3 are SLD and one aspherical, a fast reliable AF system, housing, hoods and caps and casing and profit ... I fail to see how it is possible to produce a high quality product, with tolerances to compete with L-series, Otus and others, for that money, no matter how efficient you are or how cheap your labor is.
I'd be delighted if they prove me wrong. That would make this lens a significant game changer!
I doubt this lens be made in Japan. It's more likely be made in China.
We all know the labor cost in China
I just installed ML on my 5D III (1.2.3-ml-Nightly.2) which is my first time installing ML. It installed well and I can bring up the ML menu screen by pressing "delete" in live view.
But I must be missing something (major and too obvious?) because I do not see anywhere any button for Dual ISO or AutoExposure (auto ETTR I presume)? How do I enable these?
Reading through ML forum and threads, it seems nobody bothered to give a step-by-step instructions on how to enable, shoot, and post-process Dual ISO.
Writing to both CF & SD cards works on 5D3. I don't really use the SD card, so I enable the write protect to prevent the mess on my SD card.I have never used ML. If you are booting from the SD card can you still write to both the CF and SD or do you only use the CF card?
Good question...anyone have an answer for some ML wannabees?
When I used it with the 60D, no problems using the same card its booting from...
So, I would assume that it works from both SD and CF, and it can most likely record on both while its booting from atleast one of them.
Since you know the number, I assume that you know official government inflation excludes certain categories like food. I believe that you can feel the inflation is much more than 2% from grocery stores, restaurants, and many many places. That's why stock goes to history high and richer became much more richer.
In March 2004, the Dow Jones industrial average was about 10300, and today is 16340. If you put 7000 in the stock market your stock will be worth 11000 without dividends in average in the past 10 years.
The CPI does include food. Its the first item listed.
Inflation and the Dow Jones are two different animals and aren't comparable. No argument from me about the rich getting (much, much) richer, that's a plain fact, but it has nothing to do with inflation. Back to lenses though, as someone pointed out earlier some of the super tele's got a big boost in resale value after the vII's were released with huge new price tags. Pro level camera gear is pretty unique in how well it holds its value. And really, even if you lose a little to inflation, it isn't much in the grand scheme of things when you consider how much this hobby/profession costs.
Steve, nice photo, and after reading one of Alan's posts, I tested my 300 with both extenders using FoCal and found that wide open was sharpest bare and with the 1.4x, and f/5.6 and f/8 were even with the 2x. There was a very slight boost at f/6.3, but after reading the-digital-picture and others, I had assumed that f/8 was sharper than f/5.6. Your lens might not match those results, but so far Alan and I have found that to be the case.
That is interesting. I've only ever eyeballed the results and it seems like I get better results stopped down slightly. Of course, my 300 is the non-IS and there may have been some improvements made to IQ since 1987.Actually I disagree that. You have better think about that from finance point of view. Money actually loses its current value in the future because of inflation. For example, you buy 300mm L f/2.8 for $7000. You may sell it for 6500 ten years later. However, you will lose 5% inflation of 7000 yearly. That means the future of your $7000 is about 11500. You actually will lose not 500, but 5000. The more you invest in you lenses the more you will lose in the future.
Inflation has been under 2% for the last three years and has averaged 2.31% for the last 10. Inflation is a real thing but not as big a factor as you're making it out to be.
e: quick calculation shows a $7000 lens purchased in 2004 equivalent to $8668 in 2014 dollars. Also, its worth remembering that the 300 f2.8 did not cost $7000 in 2004.
