Re the discussion on Version 1 versus version II lenses & AF Speed, I've owned & used both versions of the 300f/2.8 & 400f/2.8, both the version II lenses have faster AF speed & lock on is much quicker, weight of course is remarkably reduced, IQ not so sure on, not much between versions in my view.

The 1Dx allows much faster AF lock than the 5DMK III , less noticeable with the 200f/2, 300f/2.8, 400f/2.8, 200-400f/4 & 600f/4, but remarkably noticeable on the 85f/1.2 & 50f/1.2

Lovely image. I'll vote for square too as for me it gives your subject a bit more of a pop.

I will say now, after having shot a soccer match tonight, that the 400 f/2.8L II IS auto focuses MUCH faster than my version 1 I had.  I had 615 razor sharp photos, which is way too many but that was not even possible with my version 1.  Well worth the cost in my opinion.  Great shots to all who have posted here and I plan to keep contributing.  Thanks.

That's interesting, and good to know.   Do you think it's the same with the 300 2.8IS and 2.8ISii?  I sometimes think my 300 2.8IS isn't as fast to AF as my 70-200 2.8ii.

Agree this is interesting, as I haven't read/heard this before (I mainly go to TDP for reviews).

As for the 300mm MkI and MkII lenses, I did not notice any major differences in AF speed on my 5D3 when I tested them back to back a couple of weeks back. Since MkI lens left my home together with it's new (and happy) owner earlier today, I am no longer able to do an actual test for you, sorry.

kaihp...thanks for the info.  I wonder if the difference would be noticed specifically on the 1dx?

+1

The difference in AF speed is likely to be greater due to higher voltage from the 1dx battery.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Features on the iphone 6+

Yes because all we need is more slow mo 240FPS 720P cat footage shot in portrait orientation because the previous 120FPS 720P cat footage shot in shaky portrait orientation will look like garbage now.  ::) ::) ::)

With that built in IS?  You bet.  I want smooth, ultra slow mo, portrait-oriented feline goodness from my telephone

Then by all means the Iphone 6+ is the product for your type.

My cat refuses to be filmed with anything less than 4k!

Lenses / Re: New crop standard zoom?
« on: September 11, 2014, 10:41:46 PM »
Any rumors about that? I'd buy that lens in a heartbeat for ~1000$... ::)

It's called 16-35L/4, I'm positive that Canon designs the latest and greatest L lenses with use for crop sensors in mind. The 24-70L2 might also work, but it's missing the wide end on crop and you have to carry a lot of glass you don't use. In any case the 7d2 is designed for tele, for standard focal lengths you're supposed to buy a ff.

As for a weather sealed ef-s lens from Canon, imho forget it - their marketing people will commit seppuku before giving away such a valuable differentiation.

+1

If one  needs weather sealing etc in a Canon lens, one has to invest in a L series lens.

Not to make people feel old, but it was not that long ago when our home computers had only 40mb drives.   >:(

My first HDD was 10MB!

Same here!
