I'm running Mac OSX 10.8.2 on my MacBook Pro and have no issues with opening 1Dx and 5D3 CR2 files in Preview.

Lenses / Re: Educate me about why 70mm <> 70mm...
« on: January 05, 2013, 02:00:52 PM »
I have noticed by looking at the patents that we see detailed here on Canonrumors.com sometimes that the REAL focal length and the REAL aperture are not the same as the MARKED focal length and MARKED aperture.

What I mean is you see a patent for a 50mm f 1.4 lens and the details on the patent will say something like it's really a 51.2 mm and f 1.51. (not real numbers here, just an example I made up)

So maybe "70" on the 24-70 is really 68.2mm and "70" on the 70-200 is 73.1mm.

Don't know this for sure, just something I have seen from the patents and am speculating on.

Option won't be there until you have enough posting (10 if I remember correctly)

I think mine was more like 14 or 16 before I could set up my signature.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Anyone still using a 20D?
« on: January 03, 2013, 10:00:56 PM »
I had a couple of 20D's back in the day. It was a good camera and still is. 8MP is good enough for a lot of things. It most definitely has it's limitations compared to todays cameras. Mostly being ISO performance.

If I drop something I send it to Canon Repair. I can't take chances on something being wrong with it.

Just skip to the best and get a Gitzo. I've owned several Bogen/Manfrotto monopods and tripods over the years. The Manfrotto's are good but tend to fall apart after a few years. The Gitzo keeps on going.

I just got one last week. I have only used it on the 1Dx and haven't put it on the 5D3 yet. Love it on the 1Dx so far.

None of my IS lenses including my 300/2.8L IS II make any audible noise with the IS on. Of course, it would't surprise me if some people on this board are listening to their IS lenses with a stethoscope.

Lenses / Re: Buying used lens
« on: December 27, 2012, 09:31:51 PM »
Lately I have bought most everything new. Years ago, I bought a 300/2.8 Nikon lens and a Nikon 1D ($5000 new at the time) on eBay. Both of the sellers had a high number of feedback ratings and were 98-99% positive ratings. I felt like if this many other people had good things to say then I could trust the seller. Both times the equipment was in perfect condition and the sale went off without a hitch.

Technical Support / Re: Repairing Scratches - 5D MKIII
« on: December 27, 2012, 09:25:30 PM »
Back in 2006 I was on a job in the Northern Territory of Australia and I scratched up the top cover of one of my 1D2's pretty bad. It was just cosmetic and didn't affect the operation or IQ of the camera at all. A couple of months later I sent it to CPS Repair for something else and they replaced the scratched up top cover for free. I guess Canon didn't want a scratched up camera out there.
