Of course. You paid for it you have the right to demand what you expect from it. It is just some people expect unreal things. Of course a lens is a +/- 10 has a serious problem. I tested 5 with focal and no one was more than +/- 1 so I stopped because got bored of testing them.

I don't test them... either I'm happy or not... I have checked and adjusted backfocusing on a few.

I'm totally surprised of the IS of the 600 II... Testing at home today, hand held at 1/13 and still sharp.. Of course I was shooting at some books, but still handheld with available light at night... And 1/13!!!!

Lenses / Re: EF 600 f4 IS L II filter holder glass, what is?
« on: January 10, 2013, 01:15:37 PM »
yep... I saw in the manual after posting that says its need to be there... but looks like a piece of glass with some treatment, so I was wondering what it is... just curious.

Lenses / EF 600 f4 IS L II filter holder glass, what is?
« on: January 09, 2013, 11:30:55 PM »
Hi! I just got my 600, and I noticed that the filter holder it actually contains an installed glass, what is that glass for? Is an UV filter or something?

I think I understand what the op means. It means we paid 100 bucks for a shoddy/lazy software port.

It's always best to have code run natively- it will just be a better, smoother app, period. Witt that said, having two distinct code bases is a pain in the arse for devs. Someone's going to get the short end of the stick here, and sadly it's us Mac folk.

However to the op- chances are most n the forum are only tech guys as far as camera goes so eh don't really have a clue to what the negatives could be. So in this forum, the argument is a wash, unfortunately.

Lazy port? So you are paying only for the port not the developing of the algorithms to make it work? And how you know it is lazy? How many hours took him?

Really? Who cares? I don't think they are saying anywhere the software is compiled to run natively, and does it works and help your to get the lenses correctly focused? That's the important thing I believe...

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: Inside the Canon EOS-1D C

IP is priceless, and Canon like anyone else can sell it at any price they want. Software companies have been doing this for decades.

I sincerely hope the usual Canon bashers here don't rant in this thread cause Canon is selling the same hardware for double the price. As I always say, if you can't afford it, don't buy it. Just because you can't afford it doesn't mean you should rant about it - if you're so pissed go invent one yourself and I dare you to sell it at the price you're thinking of.

Ditto!!!

I ordered the RRS full gimbal and the TVC-34L Versa Series 3 Tripod since I'm 6' 8.5" but the tripod is out of stock for now...  I have another Gitzo Carbon tripod, but is not tall enough for me.

Now I have to find good locations in VA or MD to get some good photos.... anyone in VA or MD with good advise?

How you travel with this lens? Will airlines let you carry it on? Do you have to ship it as luggage?

45
Good, I guess I can start with that and then buy the rest if I feel uncomfortable with the side mount.  I want to get the TVC-34L since I'm 6' 8.5" tall, but as usual, anything I want from RRS is out of stock... These guys must sell a lot or not produce enough..,,
