Lenses / Re: Breaking GAS
« on: August 04, 2014, 05:03:08 AM »
So, I've tried to have a lens free year this year...  2013 was a big GAS year, so this year i was trying to break it...  And i've failed...  BIG time. I've just ordered a 500mm F/4 L IS II....  I guess in GAS terms, this is drug/drink equivalent of a month long bender?

It would appear when i go cold turkey the pent up GAS eventually explodes spectacularly....  I think it is better for smaller GAS release for me.

Ha ha - Enjoy (Once things settle down after the explosion) :)

If you are not in a hurry then might be worth waiting for the possible announcement of the 100-400L in the near future.

I am amazed how many poor images are posted on this thread . ( especially by those who consider themselves experts in their opinion !)

Okay - anyone going to bite?

Saw this beauty parked next to my car in our staff car park - had to get a shot.

It was really dark and was worried someone might run me over as i was almost horizontal on the tarmac.

85mm, 1/160, f1.2, ISO2000.

Cool shot and car, but the license plate is hilarious - intentionally or not, I'm not sure, but in the U.S. My Little Pony was a animated TV show for little girls:


Ha,ha,ha...so the owner could be female - it does not always have to be the boy with his toy  ;D


Ha ha - the owner is female :)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Manual Focus using 700D - Wow!
« on: July 29, 2014, 11:50:26 PM »
As 85 is too tight, it sounds like a 40 2.8 would complement your 700d very well.

EOS Bodies / Re: Photokina 2014
« on: July 29, 2014, 10:21:01 PM »
So, Photokina in September, what do we expect to see ?

I'm not expecting all, just some...

Canon EOS 7D MkII with 24mpx and next gen 70D AF tech
Canon EOS 750D with a 18mpx sensor and trimmed down 70D AF tech
Canon EOS M3 with same sensor and AF as 750D

Lol Canon 18Mpx sensor made it to most rubbish bottom model 1200D. Why do you expect they repeat this and put the same sensor into 750D and M3?
If they put in an 18Mpixel sensor, who says that it is the same old sensor?

Safe bets for the future is that ALL of Canon's new DSLR sensors will be DPAF. Keep in mind that one of the reasons why the 7D2 has been delayed so long is that they are having problems manufacturing the sensor. (statement by Canon executive) They have no problems making the 70D sensor, so why is this one any different? They should be able to churn them out easily.... plus the camera will not sell as many units as a lower priced 70D so volume should not be a problem....

The most likely explanation is that there is new technology involved (also said by a Canon executive). This is either a new fabrication process, a new way of doing things, or most likely, both. I expect to see finer lithography and the migration of the A/D circuitry onto the sensor. This should give slightly better efficiency and lower the noise level.... and that's a big thing! drop the noise by two stops and you should be able to 5D3 IQ out of your crop camera. Of course, if this happens then the 5D4 will get the same treatment and the 2 stop advantage will be restored.

This has to happen..... it is only a matter of time. The big question is if the time is now?

An extra 2 stops on my current 5dMK3 - that'd be very interesting.
