Lenses / Re: Patent: Supertelephoto DO Lenses With Macro Features
« on: December 21, 2012, 10:22:36 PM »
It would be quite incredible to see a super telephoto lens with macro features that has a focal length greater than 200mm. 800mm + macro would be unbelievable!

This addition will be greatly welcomed. It's really needed out there!
As for the f/4 non-IS, it's not so necessary.

With the big price difference between this lens and the IS II one, you'd think they'd keep it in the market.

Seems like Canon is updating their current 50mm line. Might as well do the f/1.8, too!

Since this is CR1, I'd say the greatest probability that one of those lenses get produced goes to the 100-400.

I'd definitely go for the 50 f/1.4.

Lenses / Re: Ditch 100L for 70-200 L II ?
« on: December 13, 2012, 08:51:47 PM »
The 70-200 II is an absolutely amazing lens. The range and f/2.8 on it is simple awesome to have, and coupled with a telephoto extender, it provides an even wider ranger of possible usages.
All three lenses, though (100, 135, 70-200), are amazing lenses with multiple ways to use them.

The 16-35 definitely covers a wider range of focal lengths, which is useful for certain purposes, but the 14-24 is theoretically better in every aspect except for the focal length in the long-range. Here's the main question: would a photographer get the 14-24 for the wider focal length and better performance, or would a photographer get the 16-35 for the versatility in focal length? I'd definitely pick the 14-24. Any day. It just offers so much more!

Going with the 17-40 would be a great choice. It's a good lens to have when you upgrade to FF, and it performs quite nicely. Its build is quite solid, and it's water/dust resistant. Plus, it takes 77mm filters, which is what many lenses take!
Hope this helps  ;)

Where's the 12-24?
A lot of us are waiting for that lens from Canon, too...

Does that mean the EF models don't have a 1.4x built-in teleconverter?

I wonder what the 600EX without the RT would do to the price of the current 580EX IIs on the market.
The 600EX-RT and 580EX II are only $10-20 apart at the moment.

EOS-M / Re: EOS-M With Viewfinder Coming Late 2013? [CR]

In a way I think this goes against the whole purpose of the EOS-M line.

That'd what I've read only on a couple of sites, and I can't confirm the accuracy of that statement.
I hope the brand isn't being relabeled, although I don't think it's an issue unless the filters are being made differently.
Thanks for the help.

Software & Accessories / B+W ND filters from
« on: December 03, 2012, 02:58:03 PM »
I heard B+W filters are now Schneider Optics filters, and the main question is this:
Are the filters being sold on actually B+W filters or will they turn out to be Schneider ones?
Has anyone ordered from this website before and received a B+W filter?
Here's a link for a reference:

Also, what's the main difference between the two filters other than Schneider being the parent brand?
