My 7D continues to be available for service, and continues to take decent pictures. It will keep fulfilling that role until something comes along to justify the upgrade. Until that time, no sweat from me.
YES! THIS! I'm noticing it on the 16-35. On close subjects it seems OK, but on landscape shots at infinity (or far away focus) I can't seem to get past the blurry/hazy extreme corners...I almost thought the lens was defective, actually, until I examined some of the shots I took at closer distance....weird.
I try as far as possible to completely discharge the LP-E6 in camera (so it will no longer power the camera) before I recharge it, though I'm not sure if this really makes much difference to battery life/ recharge performance.
If anything, that's worse. Li-ion batteries are better used frequently but lightly. Frequent full discharges will actually reduce overall longevity.
When I only used crop, the 17-40 was one of my most used lenses, but once I switched to FF for landscapes, it rarely found a use, except for some more creative ideas, as the corners are simply not good enough on FF, even at f/8-f/16. Mind you, the 24-105 suffers form the same deficiencies between about 24-30mm, but then I now use the 24mm f/1.4 MkII for landscapes at 24mm.
I never understood, what is the specific advantage of this hybrid IS?
Too slow for a prime; it seems (because I have not tried it) to lack the clarity of the L primes based on the TDP comparisons. It has IS, indeed, but so does my 24-105 with 1 stop difference. Two stop faster, and I would jump on it.
WE WANT BETTER PIXELS
NOT JUST MORE OF THEM!
Your pixels will be smaller....
This made me realize that even $399 was too much for it.
Now, the 35/2 IS for $399 would have been another story...
