Much thanks for all postings!
I own following lenses for landscapes: 12-24 4 Tokina, Canon 28-70 2.8L, 50mm 1.8 (the others are >70mm)
I am looking to get an 24mm 2.8, or are there other lenses that i should buy? (I do not have the money to get an Zeiss or another extraordinary expensive lenses.)

My only must-have landscaping lens suggestion would be the Samyang 14/2.8 UMC. Because it is a killer lens for the price and you don't really need AF for 14mm. Other than that, any sharp lens should do.

I would question using a 64G card for stills.  That's a LOT of eggs in one basket.

There is no rule that each and every card must fail some day in their lifetime. Therefore having many "baskets" only increases the chance of failure. Switching cards adds even more risk to the mix. You can get your images corrupted by accidentally touching the SD card contacts, or dropping it in unfortunately nasty places :).
For more safety 6D offers a WiFi data transfer connection, so you can "seal" the card door and never use it again, if you like :).

Very Zen vibe. Well composed.

A redstart? I am most envious :)

Thanks.
Yes, it looks like a Redstart (male).

It is funny reading this and other like threads and then remembering all the times photographers say "it's not the equipment, it's the photographer".   ;D ;D ;D

Doesn't work for lens collectors :)

Let's reframe the discussion.

It's not the telescope, it's the astronomer.

Every photographer knows - it's the lighting :).

That's true but the night sky is sooooo dark! ;)

Yes, but the actual subjects there are the light sources. In astrophotography "it is the equipment" that makes a better picture :).

To you or anyone, where did the "kiss" name come from, for the Rebel line in Europe?  Is it meant to market to certain people, and if so, which people?  In America they could almost use "kiss" also, if for no other reason than almost nobody in the potential customer base, would associate it with the rock band.  They're too young, and even their parents are almost too young too, lol.  To me, "rebel" seems more fitting, but maybe that's just because I'm accustomed to the name and the line over time.

Actually, "kiss" is the Asian name for Rebel series. In Europe we have D series - 300D-700D, 1000D-1200D and 100D aka SL1.

My mistake.  Where did it come from, if you know?

Could be the same place all weird Japanese stuff comes from :).

Haha, that is not very reverent of the Japanese, who design and build your cameras...

... and I love my Japanese cameras :). I just don't understand some design and marketing decisions they make. Like my 6D having 1/180sec flash sync and that option is not available if the flash is not attached to the camera, so I have to use 1/160sec shutter speed with my non-TTL triggers. Not a big deal, but still...
Selling lenses (non-L) without a piece of plastic called "lens hood" and asking an unreasonable amount of money for such accessories (like $70 for a hood for the 35/2 IS USM) is beyond my logic as well :). Canon started implementing "the pinch cap technology" lately, so there is hope :).
