Thanks a lot for this info

I am trying to get my photography business running but I am encountering a problem I am sure we all have:

"Everyone's a photographer!"

Not to be overly cynical, but you are the "amateur who wants to be a pro" that the already established pros were bitching about last month.   ;D

I get the same idea while reading the OP, you are the amateur trying to be pro... just as the rest

4. It's missing the pop-up flash, just like my 5DII and 5DIII.  What's happened to Canon's quality control?

WHAT!?!??!!
The 5DIII have pop up flash???, I must have gotten ripped off - damn white box sellers!!!!

Hi everybody

The online pre-submit form ask me for an promotion ID, the pdf of the promotion says TBD, but the website dont accept it.

Lenses / Re: Hurry Up!!! Sigma 35mm 1.4 699 dlls in amazon, lightning deal

Thanks for the heads up on this.  Had planned to wait to see if Canon would announce a new 35L, but at this price I couldn't wait any longer.  I ordered one which should be here tomorrow.
You are welcome  :)

Apparently quite a few folks backed out of final purchase. According to the site, only 86% (of whatever number they were offering) were sold...

Thanks to that guys I got mine... I was in the waiting list  ;D

Lenses / 24-70L II + step down ring to 77mm + polarizer
« on: October 22, 2013, 07:09:34 PM »
Hi Everyone!

I pulled the trigger with the 24-70L 2.8 II, so I bought his 82mm UV filter... however... the 82mm Kaesemann polarizer is over 200 dlls!!!... auch...

I already have the 77mm Kaesemann polarizer.

Someone has tried to use a 77mm filter with the 24-70L II with an step down filter adapter?

How bad is the vignette?

Thanks Everyone!

I have the 'holy trinity' – 35L, 85L II, 135L.  Well spaced, and a versatile collection of focal lengths. 
+1 If money is not an issue

85mm 1.8 is amazing too

Technical Support / Re: Canon 5D3 at airshow
« on: August 16, 2013, 03:24:06 PM »
Jim & Click,

Thanks, the 109 is actually known as a Buchon and it's Spanish. That rascal Hitler sold 'em to Franco minus engines (ahh, what a gent, never buy a used car from a Nazi dictator, that's what I say). It wasn't until 1947 that we (the Brits) sold them Merlin engines to power them. It was weird to see a Spanish Buchon Bf109 painted in German colours (they had to get special permission to do so) and sounding like a Spitfire. I don't think there is an emoticon to describe all that.

Take care.

Beautiful picture... I would need extra underwear if I saw (and ear) that plane...
