That's pretty awesome. An f1.8 zoom finally. Not that I'll be buying a lens specifically for crop on a hurry but that's a great step in that direction none the less.

Go sigma. I love how tamron and sigma are stepping up.

Pro lab preferably, but that said I just I did just get one yesterday just from a consumer lab in a shopping centre just for fun. It's an acceptable print actually all things considered.

There's a pro lab not far from me I've used periodically for years dating back to film days. Damn good lab called bond colour here.

I also fully expect the 7d mark ii to be approximately 3x the current price of the 7d.

Buy one now. Don't hesitate. And besides, the mark ii could be a longer wait yet than we realise, who knows. But either way, we're going to be paying for it!

I have a mamiya rb67 too. My most preferred by far.

Mamiya. But not digital, I have an RB67 pro SD. Nice big negatives.

Some members at apug (analog photography users group) were discussing k14 development a while back. One could check there as a last hope. But it's not exactly do-able except for the few.

Zeiss distagon 2/35.

I love fast primes, and that optic is for my own style, stellar.

Lenses / Re: Lens purchase strategy

I agree that only buy what you need. Others have summed that up well above.

My strategy is make use to the best of your ability what you have, for many of us don't have a huge bank account.

Secondly, get the best damn glass that you find appropriate. For me, I had only a 10-22 on my 7d for a while. I purchased a zeiss distagon 2/35. Now the others I may find appropriate are well... Very expensive. Like the zeiss apo-sonnar 2/135. I may buy a zeiss 85mm, for I do kinda need a tele. Notice I somehow mysteriously got addicted to zeiss! Whatever your choice I believe in getting the best that will last you years, If that's L lenses, cool, if its other then also cool. But really think before you buy or else you may be wanting.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Can't they make 28mm F1.4
« on: February 27, 2013, 05:02:55 AM »
Pretty sure sigma have a fast 28mm! Never used it though. It's not a new lens, but it's also supposed 'macro' or in real terms, pretty close focusing at least.

Lenses / Re: Could we ever see leaf shutters in EF lenses?
« on: February 23, 2013, 10:26:13 PM »
A leaf shutter lens would expand the size of the lens. I think there could be an issue with mounting them on the current bodies. They'd need a re-design.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Nikon 7100 has been anounced

So does this mean the d300s died? Or is this only one of possibly 2 high end crops?

No aa filter, interesting. Canon's about to be beaten hard it seems. I hope they at least have the option of no aa filter yet.

Canon General / Re: Bag question
« on: February 15, 2013, 02:55:33 AM »
The lowepro pro-runner 200 might be ok, the 300 will be or the larger trekker backpacks will also be more than adequate.

Lowepro have no shortage of larger capacity bags. The s&f system with belts etc may be another option, look them up, go to a good store which stock them and look in person too.

The new tamron 70-200 f2.8 vc might be worth a look too, seems good from reviews. But it's more expensive than the canon f4 is but not quite in the cost realm of the is ii canon.

As far as 35mm lenses are concerned, if you can deal with manual focus, the zeiss distagon 35mm f2 in my opinion is awesome... Real awesome. I'm glad I took that over canon's 35L (yes I tested it). But I'm sure the sigma is quite decent too.

Technical Support / Re: at what shutter speed you turn IS off?
« on: January 27, 2013, 07:54:08 PM »
*sighs* the only time you really should be turning it off is if your shooting fast moving objects/people or on a tripod. And that depends what lens in some cases. IS 3 mode is for fast moving objects for example but doesn't occur on anything but big expensive glass.

The hum in the lens from the IS doesn't get louder by the way!

Canon General / Re: Why did you choose Canon?
« on: January 27, 2013, 07:44:50 PM »
I've used nikon all my life disregarding other larger formats. The only canon I had in my bag was an old ae-1 program with just one lens, still works too.

Skipping to the new age, I have been very slow to adopt digital. My dad gave me a 7d on loan for a few months. I nearly completely hated it, as the system just works very differently from nikon even comparing to f90x's and f5's. however I realised how good it was. Christmas 2011 he mentioned I can keep it. That was that. Digital here I came.

Unfortunately though I had already steered my partner towards nikon. So sharing lenses is out.
