3 stops of vignette in the corner seems like a bit too much...

its an 8mp so it uses 4 pixels for each pixel kinda like a bayern 4 pixel so maybe it uses those for the dual pixel focusing.

how do these charts compare to canon charts?

most of the lenses patents aren't even exactly 50mm, 24mm 35mm etc...

Lenses / Re: Andy Rouse Reviews the EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x

It seems like a very nice lens. I have to ask myself though, if his only other choice were using the 100-400 how much different would these shots look? Sure the ISO8000 shots wouldn't have been possible at f/5.6. I guess what I'm saying is that it seems like a lot of money to gain one stop and IQ. This lens is 10x the cost of the 100-400, but is it 10x a better lens? It will be very interesting to see what an updated 100-400 will bring.

It gets more expensive than improvement in IQ all the time.

50 1.8 is 100, the 50mm 1.4 is 400 and the 50mm 1.2 is 1400... is it 14 times better? definetly not.
the 75-300mm is 100, the 70-300mm IS USM is like 500, the 70-300mm L is 1400 bucks... again, 14x better?

I was flummoxed when I heard that this thing is APS-C only.  Why?!  If this is a premium lens aimed at serious shooters, why go crop?  This is not a screaming need for the relatively few APS-C guys who spend big money on glass (i.e. birders, sports guys), so I can't make heads or tails of this.

Why not push for (idk) a 24-50 F/2 for the FF guys?  That would likely have a larger interest level.

Now that's a lens I would buy.

Seems like the XXD line is back on track.

Its just a 10% discount... Its not like it was 200 dollars.

To me it was an international purchase so first of all I have to pay 50 bucks just for their mistake.
Second, BH and Adorama lately are showing one price and then changing it in the cart to be able to sell at lower prices, as it happened with a camera I bought last week and you can try it on most canon products.
Second, I do not want or need the pixma printer nor the 40mm pancake lens.

The price is not like it should be 2400 and shows 240 dollars. A 300 dollar discount is completely plausible. Now I cannot even purchase the camera because it is not listed and my credit card is now maxed out. I am seriously in a deep problem here as I need this camera to be delivered before the 3rd of march and last time my credit card took 3 weeks to give me back my money.

EOS Bodies / Cancelled order from adorama because of price mistake, help!
« on: February 20, 2013, 02:12:53 PM »
Hi. I just placed an order last night from adorama.
They had a special on the 6D + 24-105mm for USD 2080 with a free pixma. I thought it was a really good deal, but not that it was a mistake, canon usually does rebates on printers.

Today I get a cancellation email.

Should I try to get something out of this or let it pass?
