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

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

To quote Roger from lensrentels.com:

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

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

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.

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

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.

Great review - I totally agree. A remarkable piece of engeneering.

I used this lens a lot... until i got my 85 1.2 II which is now mounted most of the time because the 100L is just a little too long for portraits on APS-C.

But still, my most favorite shots where taken with it.

Lenses / 70-200 2.8 II vs. 85mm 1.2 II - general opinion
« on: July 26, 2012, 04:24:24 PM »
Hello all,

I want to buy one of these two lenses within the next weeks. Having read all the articels about IQ, autofocus, weight, I don't need any advice like "my lens is sharper" or "the 85mm has a lot more/pleasing bokeh".
These are questions to those who own both lenses: Which one is you favourite for portraits and why? Do you prefer the 85 or the 70-200 when it comes to low light shooting (e.g. portraits in the woods at late afternoon)? What else do you use the two for and which one do you use more often? What makes one of the two lenses more remarkable than the other?

I currently own a 7D with the 15-85, 100L and 70-200 4.0 non IS. I usually use the 100L because of the background blur but find it slightly to long for my purpose. My 70-200 has the obvious zoom range advantage.

maybe it is for the 1.3 crop sensor mirrorless - anounced "sooner than later" :D

*just dreaming*

looks fun to me. lets hope it is not too pricy. might get one if it's priced similar to the 50 1.8 :)

Anything about when they could be in the stores?
I need a new cam for my next trip in august and I need to get to know it......


Don't even think about it.  This is a CR1 rumor! Even if it was CR3 with an announcement next week, it could take 2-3 month to start shipping.

I'm glad I bought my 7D last November. It is a great camera and will stay great Camera even after any 7(0)D announcement.
