Well, for zoom I use the 17-40, supplemented by a Samyang 14mm prime...

I think it will work.It might be worth asking if the new battery (and firmware) would include further measures against
I will ask for confirmation tomorrow at Photokina and let you know the results.
I accidentally did just that, yesterday. Thought I'd somehow broken the camera and it was stuck in Live View. First time it's been in video mode since I bought it...for years canon has not done much (nothing) for the studio/landscape shooter.
TS-E 17mm5. GET RID OF VIDEO FUNCTIONS, that's the domain of video recorders.
Why? As long as they don't hinder stills functions, what's the big deal? Just don't toggle the switch.
FtfyI think the new camera sounds ace and I want one but I'm a bit miffed at the price here in the UK. at current exchange rates the US price of 1800$ works out at about £1100 and the European price of 1700 euros at about £1350. Yet we are to be charged £1600. Rip off Britain strikes again.
It's the same here in Oz. I was hoping for a price of au$2000 based on the us$1799 price but it's being priced at au$2499. Maybe we'll get the US pricing if we get rid of the Union Jack from our flag and replace it with the stars and stripes
Of course it's "cool for landscape photographers". I'm sure we've all been doing that in one form or another for a while.Thanks for the laugh!
Back in the day before handheld GPS was available, if we came across a scene we liked, we drew two lines, in the form of an 'X', on a large piece of paper with contour data which related to elevation, called a 'map'. If we wanted another chance to take a picture of the same place, we would use that map and go back to the location.
That is totally awesome, ... and somebody has way too much free time on their hands.You mean..
+1 Thank you!Hi, I published a plugin for this recently, maybe you'll find it of interest.
It shows focus points for all all (post-2002) Canon DSLR and all Nikon DSLR. Currently needs Lightroom 5.
Thanks Chris. Nice job
Very useful plug in
I'm going to disagree.
That's the thing...I shoot wildlife/sports/action photography. I use a T2i right now when I'm shooting with a crop. Know why? My glass is all Canon. If it wasn't for that I'd have switched. The 70D offers absolutely no improvement in image quality over the T2i. It's the same flippin sensor, just using new technologies to squeeze a .001% image quality improvement out of it. Now this is coming out with the SAME F'ING SENSOR. The sensor is about 80% of the reason you'd buy a camera, once you choose your subject matter. The 7Dii is going to be a glorified T2i. Same old ancient sensor technology, with a few useless bells & whistles, none of which get down to the root: THEY HAVEN'T MADE A SINGLE INNOVATION IN SENSOR TECHNOLOGY IN YEARS. It's the same mediocre sensor, just rehashed. This is why they're starting to, or will continue to lose market share to other companies. Absolutely insane that it took a half decade to refresh, and it's basically going to be the exact same camera with the exact same sensor, just with a tiiiiny bit extra squeezed out of that sensor. Absolute garbage. I can't tell you how pissed off I am right now.
Don't let me laugh. The reason you bought a T2i as a camera for wildlife/sports/action photography is for sure NOT the sensor. Be honest, it was the price.
What a thought that the sensor would be 80% responsible for the purchase of such a camera. If sensor quality would be that important to you, then you would have bought a 1-series. Nothing else. What a bullsh_t you are telling here. And what about the 5D3 sensor? No progress made?
As a wildlife/sports/action photographer you are not interested in those fps, 65 crosspoints AF, f8, ... ? You really make me laugh man, don't call yourself a action photographer if you are only interested in the highest quality sensor.
If you have that good Canon glass that you can't change, then simple do buy a 1Dx and stop complaining and stop telling such a nonsense !!!
