I want to win.  I WILL win.  8)

Sigma will want you to believe this lens is future proof. They allow a USB connection to update the firmware for new third party body compatability.

"Quantities are limited so act fast"

Why should we act fast?

EOS Bodies / Re: Why are flash sync shutter speeds getting worse?

I may be wrong, but with High Speed Sync on a flash, max sync shutter speed becomes less relevant.

Couldn't help but pick up one as a second body. Here in Canada they are now $1,699. I see the US price is around $1,899.

Software & Accessories / Re: Need advice - Pixma P9000Mk2 or P9500Mk2 ?
« on: August 08, 2012, 04:10:21 PM »
I have both and I have some observations. First, even if the heads get a little clogged for inactivity, after a clean cycle everything is OK. I have left them unused for weeks at a time and never had any recovery problems. Second, the printers have different purposes. The 9000 is way better at producing glossy color saturated work. The 9500 cannot reproduce the colour gamut you get with the 9000, but is better for B&W work and producing long lived archival quality prints. Depending on the photo, each printer will produce a different look. So to me at least it makes sense to have both and experiment to see which printer produces a better result. Email me back if you have any other questions.

I have no experience in MF world, but doesnt Hartblei have some mechanism that allows EF lenses on MF cameras?


EOS Bodies - For Stills / 5D battery overvoltage
« on: August 03, 2012, 06:05:10 PM »
Since the 1 series cameras have their battery voltage at 11.1 and the 5 series at 7.2, has anyone been crazy enough to say rewire a 5D grip to alter the batteries in series and overvolt the camera for faster framerates?

Lenses / Re: New Canon 50mm Coming? [CR1]
« on: July 17, 2012, 04:36:17 PM »
My. Guess. Better IQ than the current 1.4 and 1.8 And sigma 1.4 AND 1.2L at same apertures. 8 round blades. NO IS. The only benefit of the 1.2 L will of course be 1.2 and weather sealing.

For a little bit more why not EF 16-35mm and either Zeiss 21mm or Canon 24mm L prime?

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L II delayed?
« on: April 02, 2012, 07:43:20 PM »
Maybe is so they can reissue it with IS

I would send the lens to canon for a free calibration. Every new lens I buy is not sharp and I send every one to canon. They always come back much better.

EOS Bodies / Re: DXO vs Reality
« on: March 30, 2012, 07:39:14 PM »
I could care less about technical this and that. Bottom line, what are real world results preceptually (both on screen and in print) and what are the real world practicalities (useability, accessories, etc.). For example, if the final result is a print, does the DR and mega pixels really make a difference on the size/quality of print?

Canon General / Re: Starting lens upgrade.
« on: March 30, 2012, 07:31:09 PM »
get rid of the 18-135 and buy the 70-200. If you want to play with macro keep the 18-135 and get the macro. 70-200 and macro are crazy good after canon AF calibration (my recent 100L macro had to go back as it was very much out of focus). The 70-200 is heavy so be aware of that.
