I have tried Tamron 18-270mm years ago when I still have my 7D. The IQ was soft. Hopefully this one will be as sharp as Tamron's current lenses.

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).
Number 1 rule for open source projects: Never ask for ETA.
This is probably a stupid question but I'll ask anyway - is this for photo, video, or both?
When you format, did you do a slow format or a quick one?
When you do a full format, the computer writes over every block back to simple 1's and 0's. It takes forever. A quick format just marked everything as deleted and is consequently recoverable.
I might be wrong about that, but that is my understanding.
In short the simple answer seems to be "more", I just came across the following http://www.lexar.com/products/lexar-professional-3333x-cfast-card (that's Lexar new 256GB Professional 3333x CFast™ 2.0 card) and the answer can change to "1".You still need 1 spare CF card and one SD card for Magic Lantern.
May I ask where you obtained the chip?
Yes! Love my 2 ART lenses, now they just need to make that UWA zoom
This is starting to look like THE! lens of 2014... I bet they sell tons of them!
