EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7DII lightmeter on top LCD.
« on: November 18, 2014, 05:21:52 AM »
Hi,
   Look like those DSLR which got an exposure level indicator scale in the right side of the viewfinder will not have this feature on top of the LCD.

   By looking at the number of people thought you mean exposure compensation meaning not many people know it... may be that's why Canon removed it since there is already one in the viewfinder.

  Have a nice day.

EOS Bodies / Re: A Real EOS M Replacement Coming Soon? [CR1]

Hi,
    Good... need the EF-S 24mm on my crop DSLR, so I can bring out more often.

   
I'm not sure of the performance of the 24 105 STM yet, but for only $50 more or less you can get a 24 105 F 4 L.  granted it might be grey market, but it is still an L lens.

And if the MTF graphs are anything to go by then it is an L lens that has lesser IQ.
    May be this EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM will be the new kit lens for the next new full frame DSLR while Canon prepare the upgrade for the EF 24-105mm F4L...

   Have a nice day.

Hi,
    I initially thought the yellow box mean "Yellow Card", but realised that it shouldn't be the case as the admin got so many "Red Card"... ha ha ha  :P

    Have a nice day.

Hi,
    He mention it focus as fast as the big white prime and looking at the MTF chart, I think this will replace both the old EF 100-400mm L and the EF 400mm F5.6L.

   Have a nice day.

Hi,
    Did you on the GPS?? When the GPS is on, sometime there will be lag on the AF.

   Have a nice day.

i don't know if this was mentioned but it has exposure compensation in manual mode.

I thought I remembered reading that Canon had included that but I couln't figure out how to get there when I was shooting today. I kept having to drop out of auto ISO. I guess I'll have to go back and read the manual again. Looking forward to using it. I'm guessing that's why they added the meter display on the side of the viewfinder?
Hi,
   I set the "SET" button in the "Custom Control" as "Exposure Compensation", then I can use exposure compensation in manual mode by pressing the "SET" button and turn the main dial.

   The side exposure scale will show both exposure compensation and flash exposure compensation at the same time and will show the brightness different if you use "AE Lock" function.

   Have a nice day.

Lenses / Re: First Image of the EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II Lens
« on: November 08, 2014, 05:11:05 AM »
Hi,
    Hope the "Zoom touch adjustment ring" is a tension ring that can use to lock the lens at any focal length... If that so and the lens is very sharp, I might consider sell both my EF 400mm 5.6L and Tarmon 150-600mm to get this one.

    Have a nice day.

Hi,
    Found one minor issue when using it over the weekend: With GPS on and when the camera went to sleep, the camera sometime won't wake up immediately after you tap the shutter button... sometime need to tap a few times.

    Anyway, below is 2 shots using Tamron 150-600mm @ F8.0 at ISO 1000 and ISO 4000 with high ISO NR turn off:
ISO 1000


ISO 4000


   Have a nice day.

Hi,
    Got it very late... manage to take a test shot at a cat @ iso 6400 using Tamron 150-600mm @ 150mm... hand held shot... Open directly from DPP 4 and take a screenshot at 100%... DPP default NR look quite good:


   Have a nice day.

Hi weixing,

Congrats on the new camera.

I'm thinking of getting a 7DII to replace my starter camera (600D) and I have the Tamron 150-600 too - I was wanting to know;  how is the autofocus with this lens attached and how does this combo work for you so far?

Thanks for any reply,

Cheers again.
Hi,
   Only manage to have a quick test and compare to my 60D at center point, it's seem to be a bit faster at AI servo @600mm, but more "decisive". The real test will be on the weekend when I bring out for birding.

   Anyway, like the AF selection level which can change the AF select mode very fast.

   Have a nice day.
