Obviously means no 7DII coming soon.Or it means that the 7DII is going to be way more expensive ($2500) and they are going to keep the 7D in the product line.
SUPER happy with new firmware =D
The 50mm f/1.8 & 35mm f/2 are super light and hardly stick out past the grip, are smaller in diameter than the camera, and are a stop faster. What is the point of making it smaller than the grip? Is there really a Canon DSLR owner out there that is pissed because the 50mm f/1.8 & 35mm f/2 are just too large and heavy?Forgive my ignorance, but what's special about this? It's only 10mm wider than the 50 and a stop slower.Its small!
i still cant see the point of all these f2.8 primes coming outSeriously. I don't get what Canon is doing with the lenses. We have had multiple lens announcements this year and all of them have been disappointing for multiple reasons. The 35mm f/2 is already very small and light. I would have definitely preferred that they just improve that...maybe make it an f/1.8. I have yet EVER to hear someone with a DSLR complain that the 35mm f/2 was too big/heavy. You would think in 22 years (the 35 f/2 came out in 1990!!!) they could have just improved the 35 f/2 and made it sharper, with faster focusing, and maybe a pinch smaller though I doubt anyone cares about that. Who the crap is approving these Canon lens choices.
Just get a Canon 17-55mm f/2.8 IS or the way cheaper sigma and tamron version and all your problems of figuring out the correct focal length are solved. Still not sure why you would buy either of these lenses.The 28mm seems like an odd length to me.
A 28mm is great on a crop camera IMO. A bit wider than a 50mm on a FF.
Does anyone know for certain if the Canon grips are made with a metal frame? It occurs to me that since I started using Black Rapid grips, all of the wait of the camera and lens will be hanging from the tripod mount on the bottom of the grip...one made of plastic only concerns me.Typically the grips are made on par with the body. The 5DIII grip should be weather sealed. I have used these aftermarket grips on the 60D and you could hardly tell that it was aftermarket. On the 7D it is a little more obvious the difference between material choices. For the 5DIII I will probably take the Canon grip since it's a new camera and I will own it for at least 3 years. Just bought the 7D a couple months ago and went aftermarket for the grip since it will only be my primary camera for a couple months. I plan on getting the mark III, I have just been waiting on full lightroom support, the grip and accessories to be out, and reviews for the new Tamron 24-70 f2.8 VC to determine whether I want to get the 5D kit or just the body and go with the Tamron.
