Also have my UPS tracking # for Friday delivery...
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.
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.
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.
2x converter on the 200-400 sorry ^.^
With the 2x converter you would lose any usable auto focus
Would anyone know if skin covers for either of these cameras are available anywhere? I searched and failed.
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!
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.
