Sounds like a 5D4 upgrade without warranty for 1K. If the mod really can bring a lot of benefit, I would consider for it since my 1.5 year old 5D3 is out of Canon warranty.

Optical zoom will always outperform digital zoom, and there aren't yet many smartphones with optical zoom (and those that do look like the neighbor kid's toys on Toy Story), so smartphones haven't yet replaced, for example, the $90 Canon PowerShot A2200.
Enjoy your new lens and stay away from "correcting" my posts, otherwise i will have to chop your typing fingers off.
And think about what i wrote, every time you turn the zoom ring of your tammy 600 the wrong direction.
Any reason you wouldn't just dump the cr2 once you had the converted DNG?Because alex keeps improving cr2hdr all the time, next up is floating point dng because it allows more resolution from dual_iso output ... but to profit from that, you have to have the original cr2s available.
Awesome, that's really interesting. So can these cr2hd files that it puts out still be read by LR/ACR? Feel fee to point me to documentation or a FAQ or something.
I've been keeping a lazy eye on how things are coming along for the 6D (e.g. tragic lantern), wondering when it'll be stable enough for me to take the plunge...
Any reason why Alex hasn't be snatched up by Canon?
He likes to innovate, Canon doesn't :->
Just to re-iterate my point, that price is just a guess to allow for pre orders. Much like this other Australian retailers guess:
I just had a good rebate experience from Canon with my 70-200 2.8LIS2 purchase. The $300 Amex rebate card came quickly and the website was simple to use. I don't know about others experiences but there was no reason to cry about mine.You are very lucky. I had two bad experiences. One was for a printer rebate in 2009. The rebate center told me there was no serial number with the UPC code. After I send them my rebate scan which actually included the serial number, then they send me the rebate check. One was just happened months ago for my 100mm Macro L. They didn't want to honor the rebate because of the mismatched information between the rebate form and invoice. The biggest problem is Canon's rebate form didn't mention that and how they can deny the rebate. After I search from Google and found out thousands people had problem with Canon rebate, I decided to file the problem to BBB and noticed to their customer department. Then I got my rebate approved in the next day.
I do hope the new version will keep the same bokeh quality.I believe it will be better. However, I don't like the rumor price.
CONGRATULATIONS Canon ... how about putting out some really good discounts to celebrate this milestone? but instant discounts please, without the mail-in-rebates!+1
Multiple drives, multiple locations - even when traveling. In addition to my current working copy, I have 2 complete backups (one 2.5" USB3.0, one 3.5" SATA drive that are updated when I download from camera or weekly) in a firesafe, and another 2.5" USB3.0 I store offsite and update monthly. All this times 2 since I have a different sets for different purposes.
The 2.5" backup travels with my so I can download to it on the road from my laptop. I also download to my Ipad and let it upload to a PhotoStream on the road when I've got a WiFi connection for my offsite backup.
I retire my drives every 2-3 years and start with a fresh set. I keep the old ones around for archive, just in case. I store them offsite with other family members.
The only failures I've had were not the drive mechanism itself, but the cheap USB interface card (Seagate and WD, 2.5" and 3.5"). In both cases I was able to remove the hard drive from the enclosure and plug it into a SATA enclosure with no problems or lost data. After that I began buying enclosures and drives separately. I'm currently using a Thunderbolt enclosure on my Mac - noticeably faster than USB3 and FireWire.

So despite the trolls, DRones, and naysayers, Canon is still doing something right (namely, selling more dSLRs and lenses than their competitors).
