I shoot raw only. If I need quick jpegs is use the "Instant Jpeg from RAW"  plugin.

My guess is a 50mm 1.8 or 2.0 with IS and maybe a new 85 also with IS.

EOS Bodies / Re: The Canon EOS 70D is Hitting Stores

For the moment it appears only kits have made their way to retailers.

In the picture it says bodys and kits!? :o

Will there be 200-400mm f2.8 ART for $4000? ::) ::) ::)

That would be too large and heavy. How about a 200-500 f/2.8-4, where the aperture is constant (maximum of 2.8 ) between 200mm and 350mm, then allowed to increase gradually to f/4 as FL increases to 500mm? Even that would be larger than the 200-400s from Nikon and Canon. (I've been suggesting a lens like that to Sigma for about 3 years.)

How about a 500mm f/5.6 OS HSM 'S'? Handholdable for <=5K?

We were also told that Sigma is planning something “big” for Photokina 2014 a year from now. It was hinted that it could be new super telephoto lenses.

Top level super-selephoto-lenses will definitely be a step up for sigma. But I think it will be a lot more difficult to sell >4000$/€ lenses were AF-performance is even more challenging  and customers have higher expectations compared to <1k lenses.

Haters gonna hate, my shutter's gonna click, that's it!

And by the way... it's not yet officially announced!

Canon General / Re: How ready is your camera gear usually?

To quote Roger from

10. Your favorite lens

    Is never in your camera bag because it’s always mounted to your camera
    Is always in your camera bag in case you need it for that special shot

    Is on your desk near the computer where you can look at it while thrashing those who make negative comments about it in the forums

Source: The gear-head/pixel-peeper quiz. (

I usually keep my camera and lenses in a glass cabinet to the left of my desk. When I go out to shoot I usually grab just my camera and one lens. If I need more I also have to customize my Lowepro Flipside 300 because I use this as my college bag.

<10min for me then

attached is a nasty pic (the glass removed) :D

Lenses / Re: EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x Review from TDP

Excellent review. If I can ever convince myself to buy a big white, this will most likely be the one!

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II Mentioned [CR1]
« on: June 24, 2013, 11:25:35 AM »
Sigma’s 35mm f/1.4 DG seems to be taking a lot of sales from the current Canon equivalent, here’s hoping that forces Canon’s hand on getting a replacement ready.

The Sigma is cheaper than the EF 35mm f/1.4L mk1, and would be all the more so compared to a mk2.

So Canon would have to either cut the mk2's price or make it a magnificent performer. I wouldn't bet a fart on 1st option, so I guess Canon is taking it's time to make the best 35mm f/1.4 mk2 it can make.

If they make it a 35mm f/1.2 and/or insert IS they can bumb up the price to 1.8K - 2K for me. IS-version is never going to happen, though.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mark III with Continuous RAW Video Recording

The 1Dc is basicaly a 1Dx with other Software and a bigger heat sink.
I'm not sure if it is the same problem here but I'd be carefull not to damage my 5D due to more heat from the raw output.

Since you have a 70-200 2.8 IS II mentioned in your signature you should consider getting/renting a 2x extender. It will keep your kit lighter and cheaper. The IQ is said to be almost as good as with the 100-400mm.
Have a fun and safe trip. :)

It was also mentioned that the price of the EOS 100D was “a bit expensive”.

How does this even make sense?!  :o

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon's Roadmap for 2013 [CR2]
« on: January 27, 2013, 06:00:54 AM »
everything points to a new 100-400L

I believe in a 100-400 L II when I see it. This lens is the successor of the never going to be updated 24-70 2.8 IS / II here on CannonRumors ::)

I need one to take self-portraits. Wait! Where am I supposed to hold this 'thing' ?! :o

This is one of the ugliest cameras I've ever seen.
