FWIW, I saw an active photographer with a 1D-type body neatly anonymized in black tape, with a 400/2.8L IS II, covered in black lens coat neoprene during the Kitzbuhel downhill race. Fingers crossed!
Wow ok that's postive...!!! It would be nice to see some of those shots too!!! :) :) :) :) :)

Hi All,

I though it would be nice to start a Topic based on favourite spots around the internet people use to help them decide, which Canon gear to get.

I found inspiration for this Topic from a post I just replied to. If this has been done before, it doesn't hurt to get get a fresh update.

To start this list is from Rienzphotoz:

1. michaelthementor.com
2. the-digital-picture.com
3. Dave Dugdale's youtube channel
4. thecamerastore tv youtube channel
5. digitalrevtv youtube channel
In addition I also, follow/watch at least dozen other reviewers, infrequently.



I've added these youtube channels:

Matt Granger - (He's a Nikon guy in Canon Clothes... but his views have help me with my 70-200 purchase)
Jared Polin - If you like Kai, this guy must be his US counterpart with substance.
Dan (Learningcameras.com) - Nice and clear. Great video on Canon 5DmkIII vs 6D
Indy Mogul - Top for Indie DSLR film makers! If your into that stuff.

actually the best camera review site is Amazon.com(not DPR crap, I mean Amazon user reviews)
Amazon is great but not troll proof!! I use it frequently!!

Colonial Photo & Hobby is the only camera shop in Central Florida worth a look. They are really nice and carry a good range of stock but can't match B&H prices due to sales tax, having said that B&H didn't use to ship to hotels.

There is another store Southern Photo near Melbourne, but they concentrate on Nikon gear, they are a Nikon Pro agent and have very little Canon gear and their prices are high.
I enjoyed shopping in Colonial. I agree they're the best game in town

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
