Lenses / Re: sorry i have to ask....

You seem to forget that it wasn't Canon, who said "2014 will be the year of the lens". CR guy said it *could* become a good year for lens announcements based on his rumor-sources....

But seriously, there are a few lenses I would like to see, although I might never own them (12/14-24 2.8, 35 II, TS-Es, 50 1.?). Just sit back, enjoy what's comming and what's not and keep clicking.

Canon has over 70 lenses available.  How many more do you need?   :P

Seriously, it's past time for a 35L II.
Here you go ;):

This is just the cinema version of the current 35mm L, but nice try. ;)

I'd really hoped for the 16-50/4 IS ...  :(

I will love to have a 16-50 f/4 IS too. But I don't think that's coming. It is probably a figment of someone's imagination. Sigh

How about this source of imagination:


Software & Accessories / Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga for RAW editing
« on: March 09, 2014, 06:38:00 AM »
Hi all,

Does anyone of you have experiences with the Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga? I need a Laptop/ Ultrabook for traveling and university that runs Lightroom 5. The hardware looks good but I'm a bit worried about the display for RAW editing.
What's your opinion?

Thank you

Give us more rumors!!!

Widest FF zoom lens: 12-24 L f/2.8 USM
Budget high quality lenses: 50 f/1.8 or 2.0 IS USM

I'd take both :)

EOS-M / Re: The Next EOS M in 2014 [CR2]

I thought earlier reports suggested that the new M would have a VF?   Wonder if that is off the plate now?

I'm sure Canon has different models ready or in the plans. However, they think the consumer market is bigger than the prosumer market. So no EVF this time.

[...] it will be smaller and provide a better AF experience. It’s expected the 20mp sensor from the 70D will be present in the new camera.</p>

Sounds good! Hopefully the also announce some new lenses along with it.

I expect the following lenses:

100-400 II
An UWA Lens
More primes like the 24/28/35 IS: a 50mm maybe a new 85 1.8.
35 1.4 II
Maybe new ts-e lenses

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Teaser
« on: November 08, 2013, 12:42:13 PM »
Good to see the rumor-mill heat up again.

The body looks like a pro body.

Can anybody tell/ guess wich lens shines thru in the teaser? the front lens diameter compared to the total diameter of the lens does neither look like the 50L nor like the 50 1.4 - random guess: NEW 50mm :)

Thanks for posting! I'm sure we'll see this on the CR front page within a few minutes  ::)

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 7D Mark II Spec List Surfaces [CR1]

Good.  Now release a 5D4 along with it with the same everything except sensor size, pixel density and frame rate.

I'll buy both together.

That camera is called EOS 1Dx.

AF system similar or the same as the 5D would mean it would cover the hole frame - simply awesome but I only believe it when I see that.

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Sigma 24-105 f/4 DG OS Gets its Price
« on: October 25, 2013, 10:19:33 AM »
Lots of trash talk going on here...

Sigma is facing a few problems with this lens, but so far I think they made the right decisions:

1) The EF 24-105's price is low, when purchased as a kit or as a used kit lens.
2) The EF 24-105's IQ is quite good.


1) The street price of this lens will soon be low enough to challenge the Canon.
2) Well, we will see  ;D

One thing to keep in mind:
Neither Sony nor Nikon offer lenses like this, so there might be a bigger market on the dark side.

<p><strong>Sigma 24-105 f/4 DG OS ready for preorder<br />

</strong>The Sigma 24-105 f/4 DG is scheduled to ship on November 4, 2013 according to B&H Photo. The new Art series lens from Sigma will be priced at $899. This is significantly less than the <a href=\"http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/397662-USA/Canon_0344B002AA_24_105mm_f_4L_IS_USM.html/bi/2466/kbid/3296\" target=\"_blank\">Canon EF 24-105 f/4L IS</a> when purchased new. Although, you can shop around for easy “white box” deals that bring the lens below the Sigma. However, if the Sigma performs better, then the small additional cost may be worth it.</p>

OK...this is funny...4 posts back on the rumor homepage is the canon 24-105mm alert for $639... That is quite a bit cheaper...plus the Canon has IS.  I am a little slow on the uptake sometimes...but the Sigma has no IS...correct?
I owned the Canon and it is a very decent Zoom lens ...especially at $639!...
I am A Sigma Fan...own the new 35mm....but I am wondering if this lens really best the IQ on the Canon "significantly" asit will have to to sell well, right?

The sigma has stabilization. They call it 'Optical Stabilizer' (OS) instead of 'Image Stabilizer' (IS).

The lenses sigma announced recently (18-35/ 35 1.4) are now sold for 20-25% less than at the beginning. I'd expect this lens to have a 600-650 $/€ street-price tag within a year.

Software & Accessories / Re: Raw processing on iPad/tablet
« on: October 25, 2013, 07:19:44 AM »
I have tried on android and ipad, find its not really very workable unless its for like one image for some quick sprucing up, not much different to what you'd do to a jpeg.

The apps are just too clunky for anything else but hopefully someone else has worked or found something out that Ive missed.


May I ask which apps you used?

Before getting my Mac setup, I borrowed a friend's Mac Air 11 inc and played with Lightroom & Photoshop ... for quick edits while on the road, I found it to be adequate but I eventually bought a 13" MBP 2.9 Core i7 750GB HDD (mid 2012) model and a 21.5 inch iMac (2013 model). I sold the my 2012 MBP a month ago to get a 13 inch MBP 2.6GHz Core i5, 256 GB SSD (early 2013 Retina model). Comparing it with the size of 13 inch Air it not too heavy (like the 2012 model was) ... even the thickness has also been significantly decreased from the previous MBP.
With my limited experience, I'd suggest 13 Inch MBP Retina model ... It is definitely faster than the Air and the Retina screen is plain awesome for photo editing ... now with the Mavericks installed I find it even more faster (than the Mountain Lion).
Happy shopping
I find anything less than 13" inappropriate for editing. Even while traveling. 13" just about lets one see the picture properly to pick the best of a burst.
I have the current air and must warn you that photos do not look half as good on it as they do on the imac. Am unsure if that has something to do with the quality of mac air screen.

I often heard people say 13" is the minimum and for the past 6 years I also used two 13" laptops (HP first, then Acer) for everything.
The 13" Air was not included because the Retina model is not much heavier/ larger/more expensive. However, I want to keep things as small and light as possible so the 11" Air is my first choice.

Please don't turn this into a MacBook Air vs. Retina thread, I'm interested in what peoples experiences with tablets are. :)
