You have to call Canon Services, meaning, "We don't know what the hell's wrong, but we'll send you a new one."

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 1DX vs. EOS 5D MARK III for Weddings,
« on: August 24, 2012, 09:38:35 AM »
1DX or 5D III, and why?

Depends on type of shooting.

Better metering (color, exposure, etc.), reliability, responsivness -> 1D X.
Less heavy, silent shutter, good overall performance -> 5D Mark III.
+1

Put another way:
Wedding to photograph: 5D3
Runaway Bride: 1DX

 :P

(too tempting to pass up)

+1

Pompo, how long do all of the lights flash at once? Mine did when I slid the battery on, but it quit, and the first light began blinking and the battery began charging.  I gave it about 10 seconds is all.

Yeah it only took me about 1.5 hours.  Let me look at mine and try to figure out what is going on with yours.

Lenses / Re: Why pick 16-35 f2.8 over 17-40 f4

Brian,

At f/8 to f/11?  There is no difference.  Do not buy the 16-35L for landscapes over your current 17-40L.  There is no difference really, in IQ.  If you were considering something like the 24L, then yeah, it might be worth it, but the zooms are equal at those apertures and you'll be disappointed in the lack of improvement in IQ if you buy it.

Why is the AF system will be better than the 1DX/5D3 even a choice?  I can't take this poll seriously anymore.  :) :)

Yea I don't think this camera is going to happen.  If it does...someone in Marketing should get fired for giving out an upgrade to the 7D...

Correct.

Wait, so someone who sent in a 5DII got a 1D mkIV back?

Hehe.  No idea.  Wouldn't that be a surprise?

They actually went above and beyond and are sending me an E+ 1D Mark IV.  Really great service if you ask me.

Lenses / Re: 50mm lens. I Need advice!!
« on: August 23, 2012, 07:18:11 PM »
i have the canon 50mm f1.4 on 5d markii.. from my experience this lens is not very sharp, especially on wide open f1.4. it cannot be compared to other L prime. however, if u slow down to f1.8 or f2, the result are very sharp.

And actually sharper than the 50L above f/2.8.  I'm serious.
