EOS Bodies / Re: Patent: Canon 11-24mm f/4 Lens
« on: January 27, 2014, 02:26:48 AM »
F4 sucks, well it does for me personally. Sure I use the 17 TS-E, an f4, a lot, but it is specialised and no real issue as an f4. As a general purpose ultrawide upgrade to the 16-35 f2.8 the focal length is very interesting, but f4 kills it for too many situations. Iso performance does not replace aperture, neither does IS, I want all three.

If you need the wide aperture for boke, certainly. I would still like to see a 14-24 f/2.8 L from Canon at some point in the future. Especially if it can top Nikon's IQ corner to corner.

I wish it was f/2.8...

The price might go near $3000 for that...
I understand that.  ;)


I don't really understand that, but I expect that ... even if it is f/4 ;D
I know that type of glass won't cheap but I'll settle for the f/4

I would not be surprised if this f/4 lens went for $3K given the size of the first few lens elements!
=+1 Fish...nothing surprises me these days.

Just out of curiousity, why?  I mean, practically, and not just because you want a collection of f/2.8 or faster lenses :)

24mm is too wide for events & people (where you might want the speed) due to the distortion, so odds are 99% of the use of this will be for landscape.  Landscape is f/8+ most of the time...  And the wide side we already have the 16-35mm f/2.8 for events & people - whose focal length is actually long enough to shoot people without unflattering distortion.

It is possible the f/4 design might reduce cost, size, weight, and actually improve image quality at smaller apertures where this would be used 99% of the time.
I've used the Nikon 14-24mm for events and people. I hoping was that Canon make a zoom similiar to that..yeah yeah the 16-35 good glass but the Nikon outshines it. The 16-35 mm I've tried it and "meh". I agree it would be used mostly for landscape. I have a streak of creativity.... I'm buying it regardless anyhow if this glass become reality. ;D

Animal Kingdom / Re: Where to go near Halifax Nova Scotia?
« on: January 25, 2014, 10:58:02 AM »
Peggy's Cove is nice and if you have some time and don't mind doing a little driving, go up to the north island of Nova Scotia and visit Cape Breton National Park and Meat Cove.  It is very pretty up in that area.
If you head to Cape Breton, try to hit the Cabot Trail on a weekday, far less traffic. Louisberg is a nice visit as well.

Peggy's cove is another nice spot. I like the drive in from Head of St Margaret's and the glacial erratics as you get close. You can wander around the area, then have supper in the restaurant near the lighthouse, and wait for sunset.

There is a place near Kentville, I think it's called eagles roost or something like that, where the feed chicken carcasses to the eagles so you can get interesting pictures....

Further down past the Annapolis Valley there are whale watching tours (Digby and Briar island) and I believe they have some bird rookeries tours too.
Thanks Don I plan to travel there in the very near future

Nikon and their legendary 14-24mm f/2.8G ED..

The only wide-angle zooms that Canon makes that come close are 16-35mm f2.8L II
The 16-35 is not close at all. The focal range yes, but not the performance, esp in the corners!

Software & Accessories / Re: Comfortable strap?
« on: January 23, 2014, 06:03:24 AM »
Hi,

I use a Crumpler Industry Disgrace Camera Strap. The neck strap is wide enough to evenly spread out the weight of a 5Dmk III and a 70-200 f/2.8 lens. I used it to shoot a wedding and it was comfortable all day. Although, I didn't have it on my neck much, more or over the shoulder.

B&H sell it:

Yep the crumpler works fine.

Canon General / Re: Why Scott Kelby Switched to Canon
« on: January 20, 2014, 04:01:47 PM »
I don't imagine he would have switched, purely for money as he doesn't need it.

Sure, and professional athletes already making $20 million per year don't sign contracts with other teams to make an extra couple million, because they don't need the money, either.  Right.   ::)

Put all the crimson lipstick you want on the pig, it's still about the money.
