Here is my best friend! We love watching birds and squirrels in the back yard, he's quite the hunter!

Animal Kingdom / Re: Show us your Hooters (Owls)

I think owls are super cool thanks for starting this thread! Could anyone tell me where and how to find owls, I rarely see them but I'm sure that's what the owl wants.

Why are there bottles of dos Equis in the exhaust pipe? Don't warm the amber beer please  :(

APS H format serves not useful purpose in digital anymore. Sensors are so good now, a C size one will do just fine.

But I love my 1D mark iii, don't make me get rid of it!

Can someone (I am thinking of you, jrista) explain why no low-pass filter is better than a non anti-aliasing one (except to Nikon, who can probably save some money).

Anyone bueller... bueller. Back on topic lol?

Lenses / Re: 70-200 f2.8ii or i

You will not go wrong with either one. For portraits, unless you are enlarging the prints to huge dimensions, you probably will not see much of a difference. For peace of mind, if the money difference is not a major factor, get the MkII. It will last you for decades, well beyond your current body.

+1 this is so very true, I have the 70-200 2.8 usm so I guess I don't know what to call it since it's not the mark I but I love my 70-200 so much I couldn't imagine how much better the mark II is but it's your money and bday. Like the post I quoted stated you can't go wrong with the piece of mind having the best! It's certainly a chunk of change but well spent for sure.

I totally agree that the 7D2 will be a great action photography camera.  I wonder how the ISO performance will be vs. the 1D4.

This is what I am wondering too. I keep waiting for the 7d2 as a possible replacement for my 1d3 but I'm still looking at the 1d4 as well.

Lenses / Re: Lens repair?

Hello I would love to offer my experience. I actually sent a canon 28-70 2.8 to midwest camera to have it fixed and they advised against the repair based on the scarcity of parts. The 28-70 2.8 has a common issue of a foggy rear element so look for that too. And I do like midwest camera I just got my 70-200 2.8 back from them. It took a month but it's back and works great. So if you do get it I'd really recommend midwest camera for the late model canon repairs.

Ok thank you for the very detailed reply.  You answered all my questions. I will pass on it and spend my money a better way.  Thanks again!

Hello all saw on my local Craigslist a listing for the camera mentioned in the title and was looking for advice on it.
I saw Kai of DigitalRev using something similar to this http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=38plXCYCvKQ
Any idea if this is a good deal? Is it hard to get film for these? Is it hard to get film developed for this camera? The photos Kai took were pretty cool with this camera and it made me want to try one and sure enough there's someone selling one locally. Thanks guys

Well bummer I've been wanting a calibration system, why did this deal not last longer than a few hours.

Lenses / Re: Prime v Zoom Bokeh

Keep the 85 it's far sharper in your test shots than the 70-200. Look at the wood post sharper, given the dof is different still more detail. Plus you said you liked primes better for weddings. You can always fix CA in post btw and if I recall the 5d mark iii does correct CA for canon lenses.

Lenses / Re: Canon's f/1.2's: What is really going on?
« on: April 29, 2014, 10:54:05 PM »
so have we decided adding a few drops of motor oil will keep our lens mounts running smoother and extend their life?
Yes, but don't forget to send the camera and lenses in for an oil change every 3000 mount operations.
Otherwise, there will be a few dozen atoms lost after some years.

Now this is the reason I love this forum! You know if you use synthetic oil on your lens mounts you can go up to 10,000 lens mount operations! I move lenses like a crankshaft to a piston at 9,000 rpms but still no wear!
