Well.. first of all, no, I'm neither a Troll nor did i ever believed to have any impact on canon  :). But yes, there was a reason to start this post. Reading so many specs an rumored specs i was up for a more emotinal debate and i got it. Thanks to everyone, i think there have been some really good thoughts in here. And finally believe it or not, it helped me to get closer to a decision- eg my priority about video af changed and my patience.

Now i will focus more on weather capabilities and viewfinder... seems to be more important. And no, it won't be nikon.. but maybe pentax...  again thanks for sharing your thoughs.

That should have been whether.

weather: The state of the atmosphere at a particular place and time as regards heat, cloudiness, dryness, sunshine, wind, rain, etc.
whether: Expressing a doubt or choice between alternatives


I don't know if the focus was perfect on this since it wasn't done with 10x liveview and the AF is very dodgy since they locked out the new f/8 AF for this combo but one of the better looking frames produced this, not exactly THE sharpest thing in the world, but plenty useful and usable and with more noticeably more detail than an upscale:

I mean damn why do they have to lock out the f/8 for the 70-300L?!! It's such an awesome lens for hiking/walk-around/long landscape and to be able to use it at 300mm and pop on a 1.4x TC is one of a few of the main reasons people cared about f/8 AF ability! That would be so awesome. The results are plenty usable optically, if only it would AF! This is what we were waiting for.

Sure don't say that it is officially supported, fine, but don't lock it out either. That doesn't prevent anything. People can still pop on that combo and having it hit at the short end whether the firmware works with it or not. Stinks they locked it out.

Someone on another board claims it works with the 1DX but that they removed it from the official compat list. So why did they have to go and fully remove it from the 5D3 and not just done the same thing (assuming the story is true)?

Just two days man! Just two days. Hang in there.

BTW, which time zone will Canon follow for this release? Japan time? or GMT? or EST? ... coz if its Japan time, 30th is just about a day away.
Japan - my guess...

Wow! Never seen mainahs fight like that! Great pics.
Thanks ... neither have I seen any birds fight like that ... these Mynahs were just crazy ... I seriously thought one of them would die but luckily they all seem to have survived.
Nevertheless, great pics! Well, even though you took it with that "N" camera! >:( Bah! Or should I say "khalliwalli!"


I wonder if the 2XIII now works with the 100-400 zoom?
Wouldn't that go to f11?

Brilliant! And true! Thanks. A good laugh in the morning usually sets the tone for the day :)

A flowering cherry tree near Portland OR was full of these probably immature rufous or Allen's hummingbirds.

Throats showed no color at all.

1dx at 4000 f 5.6 iso 1250 better beamer for some.
Lovely shot! Could you describe the method you used?

All the same, think I'll wait..  :)
Just a few more days...

I have for many years said that I would rather go blind than not being able to listen to music. Now that I've owned a few cameras and used them for a number of years, I'm more and more willing to sacrifice an ear and keep (at least) one eye.

Caveat: If you show me a picture of Justin Bieber and play one of his songs, I might end up both blind and deaf... ;)
LOL! Well, just my opinion, but he sings better than I can...

One of my best shots. At least for yesterday..  ;)
I managed to annoy a Red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris) by not moving out of its way and insisting to stick around and photograph him/her.
Was the national anthem being played while you photographed him?

He has his hand to his heart!
