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?

If this lens with a 2x tele competes with an 800mm prime super tele, then it has justified its price tag.  This lens with the 2x mark iii essentially would allow a photographer to replace a few, several thousand dollar lenses (along with their weight and bulk).  Hopefully, this will get some good super teles on the used market with lower prices so us regular folks can afford to pick up a super tele.  Not all of us are brain docs ... lookin' at you Neuroanatomist!  ;)
Yeah but a 400mm f/4 with a 2x multiplier becomes a 800mm f/8, and not many cameras focus at that aperture, or focus with at most 1 AF point. And to be fair, this would compare to 800mm with a 1.4TC (1120mm f/8)

Nikon without TC:

Nikon with TC

Borderline perfection!!

Here's the Canon to compare:

If that's the price for the tech with the TC, aren't we better off with a 200-400mm f/4 like nikon for 7 grand?

Amazing what they can extract from a video! 8MP images... imagine what can be done!
All those almost pics that you would get!

How do you reckon it will stack against a EF 70-200 mk.ii +1.4TC?

It is a stop slower, so hard to compare... It is definitely gonna be heavier (2.8kg vs 1,5kg)

2012 and 2013 seems like it might be the Sigma era.
i hope it doesn't go over the actual price of 3 grand.

So lets see...
Nikon 200-400mm f/4 = 7 grand.
1.4x TC =300 bucks.

Seems a bit expensive if you ask me... 7-8 grand would be killer!! But it most probably will be 10-11

The only lens I would buy would be a 100-400mm right now... Or a 400mm f/4 below 3 grand.
