Lenses / Re: Please give me an advice for an prime lens 300/400mm
« on: February 19, 2015, 04:30:18 PM »
I am pretty much in the same boat as you and I ordered the 400 f/4 DO IS II.
I have the 200 f/2 and the 400 weighs even less!

From everything I have read, this is going to be the best lens for me.  Also I am not willing to spend 10K+ on any one lens.  I just can't wrap my head around that and the weight of the bigger whites will for sure make it a much less used item.

EOS Bodies / Re: Interview With Head of EOS 5Ds & EOS 5Ds R Development

So they ran out of room for the headphone jack?  It's not something I care about, but why did they use that huge double USB port???

You need the A/B connector for a device to act as a host (e.g. for the print button everyone uses).

I'm not certain the standard connector would fit any better. However, I don't suspect that top hole goes a long way towards keeping the door closed. Seems that they could have deleted the top one and added a headphone jack in its place.


But look at the 7D Mk II ports, it is basically the same size and has USB 3.0 and HDMI and has the headphone and mic, PC and remote so they could have added the headphone.
To differentiate all the lines they just do stuff like this.  I am not a video shooter so does not bother me but there is no other good reason to keep the port out.

EOS Bodies / Re: After a 50MP camera what is the next breakthrough?

Again, this is mind-boggingly narrow sighted, to a level that almost defies belief.

For you, those are the features that are important and you are looking for.  To others, we want more megapixels over other things.  I myself want more megapixels than dynamic range or focus.  You know why?  Because I print large a lot.  I love minute details in my prints.  I've never had an issue with dynamic range that I couldn't correct by bracketing (remember, I'm talking about myself, not others).  I focus manually using live view, so improved auto focus is not important to me. 

So you need to absolutely stop making such blanket statements.  Just because this is not what you want, does not mean it is not a great product for many other people.  I won't be complaining when Canon introduces a lower megapixel, high ISO capable, premiere auto focus camera.  Why?  Well, I'm smart enough to know that even though it won't benefit me, it will benefit others.

I take it that you don't understand that this is a forum designed for people to post their *personal* opinions on Canon related topics.  That's all that is ever posted here -- a person's personal opinion/viewpoint. 

The fact that you are surprised that someone posted what they would like (an opinion) questions whether you understand the purpose of these types of internet forums.

You have the ability to post *your* opinion on the topic, as do other members of this forum.

You don't have to agree, or even understand, someone else's opinion, just like we don't have to agree, or even understand, your opinion.  But all opinions are welcome here.

No one, other than the Mods/owner of this site, has any authority to mandate what a forum member can and can't post.

"So you need to absolutely stop making such blanket statements" is really totally out of line.

Let's play nice and recognize that people have different opinions. An opinion you don't agree with is not necessarily "mind-boggingly narrow sighted, to a level that almost defies belief".

Would you like it if someone called your opinion that?

+1000

Wont even go there to analyze the SoullessPolack statements like this one:
"So you need to absolutely stop making such blanket statements" because they are screwed on so many levels, pathetic...

Also agree, maybe the OP was trying to be clever but did not come off as such, more trolling but who knows.

Consider one of the messenger style bags from Timbuk2:
http://www.timbuk2.com/snoop-slr-camera-case-messenger-bag/144.html#/dwvar_144-4-6061_size=3&dwvar_144-4-6061_color=6061
Or, they sell just the insert portion and you can put it into whatever bag you'd like (obviously assuming it fits).
http://www.timbuk2.com/snoop-camera-insert/869.html?dwvar_869_size=3
I have a standard Timbuk2 messenger bag in small size with the Snoop insert.  It holds gripped body w/24-105 plus my 100-400 zoom and a flash.  I got a regular bag only 'cuz there were more color choices.  XS should fit what you want to carry.

I was going to suggest the Snoop insert and you could probably put it in different bags.  Fior me the Snoop and a Timbukt2 bag or a small Billingham would be the best.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 1D X Power Adapter
« on: February 05, 2015, 10:24:40 AM »
I have one for the 1DX and 5/7 series.  They work just fine, no issues at all.  There is a small rubber piece that moves out of the way for the cable that I had never really noticed on either camera.
I go both used from the ebay for a fraction of the new price,

Lenses / Re: Who is going to buy the 11-24 f/4L?
« on: February 04, 2015, 04:21:56 PM »
I think I am pining for the 400mm f/4 DO II over this one but I am going to wait and see how these new bodies and this lens test out and the images look.  I have the 16-35 2.8L II and while it may not be the best overall lens it has served me well when I wanted to use the wide field of view.

I recently, about two months ago, sold my 5D Mk III and got a 1DX.  I would not want to get rid of the 1DX now for the new 5Ds. 
If I had to choose a new high megapixel right now, it would probably be the Pentax 645z.  After reviews and comparisons are out we can see if it is better or not.

EOS Bodies / Re: What will become of the 5D Mark III?
« on: February 04, 2015, 12:13:03 PM »
Well, I sold mine in November of 2014 and used the cash to put towards a 1DX.  I'm very happy I did.  I don;t know if it is just me but it seems to focus a lot better and meter better too.
Now this new 50MP beast, not sure if I "need" it but I greatly look forward to reviews and images from it.

Wifi, it is really nice.  The 6D Wifi with connection to iPad for viewing of shots is very nice.

Thanks, I am going to order now that I see it.
