From this afternoon at the playground, I pushed the swing and quickly pulled up my camera and took one shot before I had to get out of the way, needless to say, the 50 Art focusing issues are very much gone. Shot at 1.4.

Great to hear that Viggo... oh, and great shots too.

Anybody got similar 'upgrades' because of white lenses ?

Yup. 300/2.8L mounted to 5D3 :D

One big bummer is nothing as far as settings seems to transfer between the two. Not even simple things like exposure or check marks.

Are you saying that doing an edit in DPP3 (e.g. curves & WB edit, and star-rating) doesn't show in DPP4? :o
My edits are coming over fine  :)

For the DLO module, I wish they had the old 400mm f/2.8L IS USM in there too, like the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM.

So you are proposing that Adobe make updates to every version of their software every time a camera manufacturer comes out with a new camera? Nobody does that, not one software manufacturer.

Well, yet again, Adobe are unique amongst software manufacturers in that they do end up enabling you to use your new camera with you old software.

pbd, aren't you contradicting yourself here?

Yes, you can shoot take a 6D and edit the JPEGs from itin CS1, but you cannot import/edit the RAWs in CS1.
My stepmom had to upgrade her PS when she moved from 1Ds to 5D3 for this particular reason.

To add to the conspiracy theories: What does 1Dx, 1DC, 5D3, and 6D have in common that older cameras doesn't? - separate W/T AFMA support. As as as I understand, it's the EOS Utility that brings the SDK with it, and this might be the reason that Canon decided to cut here. If this is true, we should see this in the SDK API and Rich from Reikan/FoCal would be pleasantly surprised :)

I have now used it both on the 1DX and 5DIII with Ec-S screens (not meant to be on the 5DIII, but it fits with a little push and a steady hand). Focusing was a lot easier than I had expected and in reasonably good light I hit it almost every time.

Eldar, that's very interesting information. I sorely miss the split-prism center (to the point that I bought a 3rd-party screen for my 50D), so I'm going to give this a try.

A 10D and a 50D body.

10D: 1MB/s CF write speed. Need I say more?
50D: I was never happy with the pictures coming out of it. They always seemed a little noisy and a little OOF, no matter what I did (including AFMA).

If you read Andy's blog, he seems like a pretty sincere blunt guy.

There, I fixed it for you ;D

Its almost certain that the firmware will be tweaked, its just so complex that there are always bugs.  When new models come oput by the thousands, and there are tens of thousands of users, many of whom are doing strange things like taking photos with lens caps on, then additional bugs will be found.

Agreed. The basic axiom of More Users Find More Bugs still applies :)

The weight is a habit with the 1dx + 200 f2, the results from it makes it lighter ;D

Yes, results like that are very 'bearable' ;D
And very cute lady model there too ;)

Quick update: went to local camera shop today(by myself this time) looking for a backpack to fit 24-70 II and 70-200 combo. Some how, my American Express got charged @ $6,000ish :o

Local camera shop has one left - display unit. My freshly brand new 1DX should arrive next tues or wed - with 3yrs Canon US warranty for less than $6200

Hope the wife is not reading this thread... ;D

Congrats Dylan. I hope the shots from the 1Dx will mellow your wife  :D

Lenses / Re: What was your first L lens?
« on: June 06, 2014, 12:06:55 AM »
My first L was the 17-40/4L, which I bought the same day as my first DSLR: the 10D, just 10 years ago now.

Later came the 70-200/4L (non-IS), which was sold for a 2nd hand 70-200/2.8L IS (MkI).
I still have the 17-40L, but the new 16-35/4L IS is fueling my GAS :P

Thanks all, I have about a thousand images of him, so I could feed you for a long time. And with the risk of being boring, hereĀ“s one more.

I'm not getting bored at all (yet). The bokeh looks a bit odd, but I guess that is an artifact due to shooting through the thin wire mesh (chickenwire?) you mentioned earlier?
