Yup. I'm more than satisfied with my 16-35 f/4. I also await the 85 as well as the 135 Art. I wonder if they're also working on a 200?

This is probably the truest statement anyone has made about the 7D II so far. I've tried and tried to demonstrate to everyone, through theory, math, and even some visual examples (of which I clearly need to do more) that an APS-C sized sensor will NEVER perform as well as a FF sensor (all else being equal). The 7D II may close the gap, temporarily, between the 7D line and the 5D line, but it won't overtake the FF in terms of IQ.and even if there was some new magic technology that allowed the 7D2 to outperform the 5D3, you can bet that the same magic technology would be rushed through development and we would see a 5D4 that restored the FF advantage....
As long as canon and all other digicam makers are able to put wifi and gps into quite a number of measly and cheap 1/1.7" and 1/2.3" dwarf-sensored compact and bridge cams .. Powershots, elphs, coolpix ... And are able to get regulatory approvals for those pieces of junk around the world ... There is no excuse on earth for not putting wifi, gps and rt flash commander into every single dslr they make.
Plastic zoom and focus rings, hmmmm, that's first in the the L world with a full plastic outer shell.
As you have supplied wonderful photos of Lees shoddy workmanship in the manufacturing of your filter system, could you please supply a photo that was ruined by this inferior system?
No? I didn't think so.
Some expect a bit more of the gear they with their hard earned money buy, I guess. Like something they come to expect from other manufacturers: deliver flawlessly when it comes to such things as basic chemical treatments to an adapter ring. Never had that from any other manufacturer.
Let's say it this way: If you buy a car and it already has markings on the finish and the window is a bit broken or you can't get some color finish off of it, then you take it home anyways without questioning that for a second? Really odd attitute I must say. What "show me your pics" has got to do with that, is beyond me...
I did send the ND glass back for a replacement. Fingers crossed...
I just bought a Lee filter system and I am really shocked about the build quality of that system. The adapter ring has a faulty finish with markings on it, which then were fixed with a pen as a cover up. After returning that adapter ring I got another one just like it. I conacted the manufacturer which explained to me that these markings are caused in the manufacturing process, quote: "The marks inside the ring are voids left during the anodising process. The rings are suspended in the solution by small wire 'hangers' and these leave voids where they touch the metal."
This I never have seen from any other manufacturer.
See picture for this.
Above all my 0.9 ND pro glass came with tiny specles of yellow finish on the glass right under the yellow label. This goes well 30mm into the middle of the glass. On a glass worth of 200 Euros. Also not what I would call high end. This is just bad quality so far. I haven't given up on it completely but one more of this stuff not gone through the quality control or badly produced and I will send the whole shabbang back.
There is a water and object ingress standard at least in Europe, IP XX, where the first number stands for objects and the second for water, I think it was something like IP 00 means you can get an industry standard finger in there, and water that runs in runs out and IP 67 means that dust has to be below so many microns and you can pressure wash the item and water won't get in.. This is just from memory so feel free to correct me!
Anyway back to the point if it doesn't say IP XX on the label it isn't weather or water resistant!
Markins generally is thought of as not playing well with other gear.
I have the Markins Q3 on Gitzo monopod and the Q10 on Gitzo tripod. 7D with RRS L-Plate and 2 lens with collars and RRS lens plates and never had an issue with compatibility.
I wonder if this means they're still on track for a September release. Although sooner would be cool, I don't think it being out of stock at Amazon means that it will be released any sooner. It might be construed as further evidence that the September release rumours are accurate though.
Refurbished 5D mark iii is out of stock the most of the time. At least I couldn't catch one in stock.
Looking at canonpricewatch.com how do I know if camera has full USA warranty?
Which tripod are you referring to? I've seen lots of feedback from Amazon users complaining that heads will not fit on their tripod which has a 1/4 inch screw and was not intended to have a head attached to it.
You will need tripod legs, not a complete tripod that a camera mounts on if you want to install your own head.
I apologize if you already know this, but if not, you might be disappointed.
BTW, having a head that causes a expensive 70-200mm lens to flop over because it doesn't lock or hold its position might become a very expensive one if your lens flops down and takes camera with it onto the pavement.
The two that I have need to be tightened with a wrench to keep them locked in place.
thanks i know it's not that good but that what i have , so these heads will work on this tripod will they fit right
