I didn't concern myself with anything, just bought the biggest damn camera I could afford. Aries btw.

Actually, in my opinion a Canon 70-200 f2.8 L IS II is a better choice.I think I'd agree - have experience with neither - but do realize that an 1.4 extender takes away 50% of your focus speed, so the "98-280" is a good deal slower than just the 70-200. Also, they don't overly affect IQ, but it is visible.
Am I on the only one that read the entire story and saw this line (it appears twice in the story):The price was added to the article at a later stage
Preorder the Sigma 120-300 f/2.8 DG OS HSM for $3599
It is definitely gonna be heavier (2.8kg vs 1,5kg)Has the weight been confirmed somewhere or is that the previous version?
going to hell for thisFor spreading the Word? I doubt it. Doesn't the gospel of John tells us the Word became flash?
I've shot through a lens of 3D glasses at an imax, just okYou know that those are polarizer filters and that you should be able to get better results with a regular pola?
Thanks to every one for your great replys. Given me a lot to think about. Has anyone ever used and extender with a 50mm 1.4? Could be a solution to having to lug a long tele around with me.The Canon extenders physically do not fit on the 50mm 1.4, I think. I've used a Soligor 1.7 extender with a 50mm 1.8II - let me rephrase that: I've tried to use an extender with the 50mm 1.8II. It hunts like Davy Crockett and only rarely achieves focus. No go as far as I'm concerned.
Max magnification of the MP-E 65 is 5x. 5 times 1.4 is 7x, 5 times 2 is 10x. As might be expectedHigher mag than the native lens - up to 7x with the 1.4x TC and 10x with the 2x TC.I've never owned a tilt-shift lens but did you mind explaining how the magnification increases that much rather than just 1.4 or 2x?
Yay, that is a good point. Don't want those markings to wore off. They make up 90% of the hood price (if it did not come with lens)Don't you believe that. I bought an aftermarket hood twice so far. Now I buy lots of unbranded stuff - remotes, lens caps, everything - and I'm usually very satisfied by the quality, but the mount of a hood apparently is very tricky to get just right. Also, plastic versus felt lining. Canon's hoods are far superior to the eBay stuff and no joke.
I'm glad to hear everything has worked out, and that you haven't given up all your gear. Enjoy the time with your baby, and hope you get plenty of beautiful and memorable shots.+1
If I could have one camera and one lens! I'd seriously contemplate a Leica m9 and a 35mm f1.4 ... Or I'd get a 1ds mark iii and use my zeiss 2/35. - cheaper option.You might want to read more carefully before replying. He's trying to free up some funds for his baby*, not asking for 'best regardless of money'.
Btw Unless you really won't use a 5d2 I'm not sure I'd be wanting to sell it either.
I have flashbacks of a product issue statement from Canon about this very problem. A certain product range was affected by discoloration over time due to some plastic issue. But I can't remember if that was the 5D3 or some other model. But looks similar certainly.I think you might mean http://www.canonrumors.com/2012/08/canon-rebel-t4i650-recall-again/ ?
There was some dicussion on it here as well.
