United States / Photography is Terrorism?
« on: October 11, 2011, 08:48:26 AM »
Here is a link to a news article about a man in Scotland who was banned from a mall because he took two pictures of his daughter with his cell phone camera:

Living here in the USA, I am glad things aren't to this point yet, at least not where I am from... but that somewhat-related post I saw earlier about possible mandatory shutter noises in cell phone cameras could be heading this sort of way, maybe?

Lenses / 300 2.8 (Mark I) Availability
« on: July 18, 2011, 01:07:59 PM »
Back in late May, I purchased a Canon 300 2.8 from Abe's of Maine. They told me at the time it was backordered, but they thought it would be available soon.

This lens is still on backorder, and they say that Canon says that they have no information on when it will be available. This whole time, the 300 2.8 has also been on backorder at BH, but adorama has one for about 1,000 bucks more...

My question is: does Canon intend to fill this backorder? Will I get this lens, or is Canon simply saying nothing hoping to hold out until the 300 2.8 Mark II arrives, and tell me I'm out of luck then?

Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?

Lenses / 70-300 4-5.6 IS (Not L) Parts on Backorder

Hey Everyone,

I'm having my Canon 70-300 IS (not L) repaired, and the parts (inner housing) are on backorder. Anyone else experiencing this issue? Is Canon trying to phase this lens out?

Lenses / 400 F4 for ASP-C?
« on: December 06, 2010, 01:58:29 PM »
I wish Canon would make one of these: a 400 F4 IS, not DO, designed for ASP-C. Hopefully it would be inexpensive (comparitively; I wouldn't mind 1,500-1,900). Though EF-S would probably make it incompatible with TC's, so hopefully they could make it ASP-C but not EF-S?

Is this a crazy idea? Or would others buy this too?
