Sorry to see this discussion...it seems we are still  waiting for a really good all around 50mm.

Both yes and no, mine worked for 6 months and it's been extremely consistent and so perfect it makes most other lenses look like you won them on a vending machine. And the AF and tracking have been as good as the 2470 II. But if it only lasts a few months, that is quite a big issue, I agree. If I had known the working copy would also stop functioning I would have given up on it way back in April.

This is the last chance it gets ..

I just wish canon made a great 50 or 85 1.4....it's really a shame that it has to come down to this.

In what way are your pictures suffering when you say "Keeper rate is down"? Curious.

sanj...too many OOF shots.

I've been wondering the same with my 5D3. I think I'm around 100k or so.

Problem is that there's never good time to send it out :( There's always something fun to shoot, so I cannot part with my camera...

so it doesn't seem like there's a normal maintenance schedule. ( like you would have with a car)  :P

once a year is probably as good a plan as any.  i'll probably start doing that.   

thanks

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Canon 1DX maintenance?
« on: December 27, 2014, 03:44:57 PM »
I've hit roughly 70,000 clicks on my 1dx and I'm wondering if it's about time to send it in for a clean and check?  Is there a general recommendation/rule that I should be following?

I've recently started to notice my keeper rate is significantly down (shooting sports) and I'm wondering if a clean and check would help.   

Thanks in advance for your help and advice!

My guess is 12-18 months for the 1dx ii.

I've seen the 1dx for around $5800 recently, where the 1dxii will probably cost $7500... So that's another consideration.

Feedback is apreciated. :)

Luke Skywalker....I love them all!  Well done!

The only one I would've done something different with is the girl in the tree, I love the shot, just not the leaf over her right eye.  The setting and subject are so beautiful that I don't thin you needed anything more in that shot.

Thank you so much, Darth! Yeah, that ninja-leaf sneaked in my shot there. But we decided to keep ist since we both love the photo. I had two models that day and letting them climb the tree was the best idea ever :D. Here is another one of a girl within the same tree. :)

Beautiful shot!
