EOS Bodies / Re: 5D3 Shipment in Europe?!?!
« on: May 09, 2012, 09:29:28 AM »
Many european countries are still dry. One major german official distributor told me he had still to see one kit delivered by canon germany. All what they had was coming from HK gray market. Same is happening in Italy. HK is also dry at the moment. There were plenty of 24-105 kits and bodies there until last week but now zero. Prolly this has to do with the light leak fix thing, even though Canon sales strategy has been recently somewhat confusing. They have raised prices pretty much on every popular item (DSLR lenses & cameras) and availability in general is extremely low. OL good marketing tricks.

Wow! Where was the first shot taken? Looks fantastic.

Great photos on this thread btw, makes me cringe when I look at my own photos :(

Thanks! It is taken in Hampi, India. I have recently put some more photos into a slideshow, here

EOS Bodies / Re: The 5D Mark III Will Start Shipping Again - but when?
« on: April 28, 2012, 02:39:43 AM »
we got some units this week from hk gray market, body and kits. Cameras are not affected. Sixt digit is "0". HK supplier says availability is ok/good. On the other hand european distro is suffering. Many canon official euro distributors still have to see the first batches. I think Asia and USA were canon primary focus markets for 5d3 relase.

They only sell to Australian customers as far as I know, but they are linked to a distributor which provides to many online grey sellers (as I am moving into the retail business, I won't name names). I have never had any issues with them and was also one of the first to get a 5D Mark III due to their fast turnaround and shipping.

I know of someone who purchased and received one last week, so they had stock at least as late as that.

yes. there's stock in HK of 5D3 bodies (and kits) and grey market never got short of these. We will be receiving some units next week so I will be able to check serials, but I am nearly sure that cameras will be affected. My HK guy said they just don't care and they are too busy to check. As a matter of fact it will take a while to clear the market from "defective" units. I don't really think that Canon recalled them. Their policy will likely be "if customer complains we will offer a "fix".

Lenses / Re: Canon 1.4/24L or Carl Zeiss Distagon 1.4/35
« on: April 23, 2012, 10:32:59 AM »
canon 24 from 1.4 to 2.8 is quite soft and pretty useless.
I'd consider also the zeiss 21 2.8 which is an amazing lens and is a clear overall winner. Never tried the zeiss 35.
Also i dont have any experience regarding usage in freezing conditions

EOS Bodies / and the real D800 competitor is ....
« on: March 14, 2012, 04:51:24 AM »
....5D2!!!! aka the poor man's FF

Canon is flooding the market with these. In Italy prices as low as 2300 eur for the 24-105 kit. Smart marketing move, since D800 are nowhere to be seen. 5D3 will be hitting distributors next week, with several pallets of cameras already allocated by canon.

Availability to the market, more price choice on FF and production capacity seem to be canon's weapons of choice against D800
