I am actually re-aligning my entire lens collection. I have a 1DX coming along with the 24-70LII. Here is what I plan to do with the double rebate...

7D for my wife with a EF-S 15-85
16-35L II (owned ver 1 and now want new model. I currently have the 14L but selling it)
70-200L II (Just sold but want back again)

24L II (Sold and realized I loved it)
35L (Never owned but want. I just sold the 50L and want to try the 35L)
85L II (Sold and realized I loved it)
135L Never owned but want for indoor events)
100L Macro (Looks like fun. owned the 100 macro before)

Another 600EX Flash

Since my wife has starting enjoying, i am trying to justify the "double up" on some lenses.

I am going to buy either a 60D or 7D for my wife next week and thinking about taking advantage of double rebates for quite a few lenses. What is the consensus on utilizing this double rebate right now. They are lenses I could live without...

Wondering if Christmas rebates will be better. Any thoughts.

Thanks,
Danny

EOS Bodies / Re: Skin cover for 5d3 / 1dx

I've never seen the point in screen protectors for a camera. #1, my screen never gets scratched, and thats with professional use, #2, if it does get scratched... so what? The screen doesn't take the photo. Who cares? The camera is a tool. A carpenter doesn't put a protective cover on his hammer so the nail doesn't scratch it up. :P

As far as a skin is concerned, sure, who doesn't want flames on their camera? But for the price I'm sure they would charge, no thanks.

He would if the hammer cost $6800! As for Screen protectors, That is a no brainer. I think not doing because the price is the epitome of "penny wise and dollar dumb"

Lenses / Re: Owning the Canon 200-400 f/4L Vs 400 f/2.8L II
« on: July 05, 2012, 09:55:02 PM »

Ever since the 200-400 was announced, I've given this a lot of thought.  I have young kids that will be going into field sports very soon so I've been planning on a big lens for a while. 

I personally don't think I will ever shoot longer than 400mm so for me, it's the 200-400 or the 400.  Since both are going to be in the same range, price doesn't play a factor for me. 

I'm leaning towards the 200-400 because of the versatility.  If the IQ difference is too great, however, I'll get the 400mm.  If there is very little difference, then I think I can lose the light/speed and go for the 200-400. 

I guess what I don't have experience or knowledge on is the difference in background blur between the two lenses.  That could play a role so I'd love to see someone shoot the 400mm at both 2.8 and 4.0 and post the photos.

You and I are in the exact same boat... I too want to get a lens for my kids sports.

I don't know if I will get back into it, but I used to shoot some for the larger sportfishing mags and I used my 300 2.8 for jumping sailfish and marlin. I will say that the 200-400 would be an absolutely killer lens for that use since a fish can be 20-120 yds from a boat in a matter of seconds. Having the 200-400 on one body and the new 24-70 on another body would be a heavenly match.

2x converter on the 200-400 sorry ^.^

I should have asked rather than assumed... Yes, true.

With the 2x converter you would lose any usable auto focus

Where do you find that info? Page 79 of the 1DX manual classifies the 400 f/2.8L II with 2X Ext in Group E giving the combination Cross Type AF across the 3X7 Center focus points and Some AF across the rest of the points.

Would anyone know if skin covers for either of these cameras are available anywhere? I searched and failed.
Thx.

YES!!!!! Please, please, please speak up if you know of a skin. Also, screen protectors for the 1DX. I have an extra XO Skin for my 5D3 that I think will cover the main screen and the top screen.

3/14/12 at 9:39PM. Told today that my order is not yet ready for shipment but that I should make sure my CC company knows that a charge will come in the near future (whatever that means)

CSR went on to say that they have many bodies coming in to cover pre-orders and he sees that my order was placed early on. He would not go into any more detail than that.

Lenses / Owning the Canon 200-400 f/4L Vs 400 f/2.8L II
« on: July 05, 2012, 12:37:40 PM »
When the 200-400 lens becomes available I will be purchasing it or the 400 2.8 prime. The delima of which of these 2 lenses would be more effective is making me mad.

The versatility of the 200-400 with the built in ext will be excellent. To think, though, that with the 1.4X and 2X ext gives you 3 incredibly useful focal lengths is equally incredible.

Owning the 70-200 f/2.8 II and using both ext's on it often, I think that the 200 to 280mm range of the 200-400 would go unused much of the time.

I have owed the 600 f/4 300 f/2.8 and the 200 f/2. Of all of those lenses, the 300 f/2.8 was my favorite.

Has anyone else given this much thought?

Hey guys, I can confirm again that there is a high possibility that BH are receiving quite a lot of the 1DX in their first shipment. Just chatted with them over live chat, and I was told there is a high possibility for me to receive mine in the first shipment, so lets all wait impatiently! ;D

What time did you order on March 14th? I am leaving town this weekend and would so love to take it with me...

I ordered my 1DX from BH at 9:30 PM EST on March 14th. (I believe that this was the first day) I just contacted them and they noted that mine is not scheduled to ship yet. They did note though that they have already shipped some out.

What time did you order? I would hate to think that by waiting a few hours, I have cost myself another few weeks of waiting...
