I heard the Canon 5D Mark 3 has no interchangeable screens anymore? Would be a shame for manual users like me ;(   Can anyone confirm this?

Confirmed.

Could someone devise a depth of opinion calculator, to minimize the circles of confusion.

And that's only your third post? Please keep 'm coming like that - I enjoy these types of statement ;)

200 2.8L i and ii
400 5.6L

Both still no problem to deliver good images at Canon 70d even at 100% and wide open.

70-200 2.8L, 24-105/4 IS is indeed very fine lens and still very competitive.

85 1.8 ,100 2.0 and 100 2.8 USM macro....great lens.

Yes that 24-105/4 IS is a superb lens.

No 100-400 replacement! This is the first time in a long long time that the rumour has been no replacement. Four years of saying it will come and now "no it won't".

First 100-400 rumour that I believe and I will be the first to laugh if it is wrong again :)

I think everybody's got it wrong and it will be a 400-100L, and it will be reverse engineered from the original.

I dunno wheather post my composition into City subsection or here... 'cause its the opposite of "nature":

Shinjuku Split by davidcl0nel, on Flickr

That's excellent, I like the day&night effect. Very artistic. Tokyo is also a cool city (I've been there myself!).

Samy need AF or they will go only for video.

But that is not the case...we`ll see...

For work i prefer af 1.8 not 1.4 mf.....  on the field you need fast and accurate af and that why we pay all that money for complex af systems.

If not...deam i will stay with 5d original and 3-4 samy`s

The MkII also pairs very nicely with MF, or even AF primes, one reason it stays in my kit :)

A related question:  how many non-Nikon shooters go to Nikon forums to complain about Nikon?

From what I've seen, many of the most vocal complainers on CR don't use Canon gear.  Some of them used to shoot Canon.  So why are they here?

Have they 'found religion' and are here to 'convert' the great unwashed masses?

Do they have inner doubts about their choices, and coming here to complain about Canon helps them continue to justify their decisions?

Do they think they're being altruistic, devoting their time and energy to show us poor, deluded fools how bad we have it, and how good it could be if only we make the same choices they made?

Do they honestly want Canon to deliver products that would meet their own needs, however niche those needs are, and somehow believe that complaining here will help accomplish that?

Or...do they merely want to sow discord?

Frankly, the vast majority of CR forum members are here to request and provide information, share techniques and images, etc.  CR is a great community resource, and like nearly all successful Internet forums, it attracts a few incessant complainers.   Look on the bright side – they provide some entertainment on slow rumor days...

I've never figured this out.  It happens with almost any product.  I'll see an article about a new iphone and most of the posts are from people criticizing it.  If I see an article, post, forum, etc. related to a product I don't want, use, or have an interest in, I don't read it, let alone leave negative comments.  What's up with these people?

Some people just don't understand the gear they're using. Quite often gear is unjustly being criticized for what is essentially user error. For example - "my lens is soft at 300mm" well ok but then that's to expect with a shutterspeed of only 1/20s :p

Another shot (5D MkIII + 17-40).


Sunset on the lake

On 500px --> http://500px.com/photo/81375833/sunset-on-the-lake-by-giuseppe-cammino?from=user_library

That's a great shot. The 17-40 will soon become an underrated lens  :-\

That's a nice teaser; aiming at the videographer obviously. I don't yet see a major advantage vs let's say the Sigma 1.4 EX.

Just a flower...

Lovely

Interestig bokeh/background. Almost looks like a painted glass window.

...from Samyang without autofocus.  :-\  Why hasn't anyone made this standby focal length yet??
Sigma offers some very good lenses for EOS-M at very affordable prices. Check them

Sorry, no. This has been dissussed before:

Not sure this is a landscape, but it's a massive panorama anyway (this is downsized to 1080 pixels height). Enjoy :)

with the 20 set f8 hard stop infinity and everything from 2m to infinity is in focus anyway its a wicked point and shoot when used like this.

I have a 12mm Samyang that I use on my Sony, and I've not quite figured out what is the 'ideal' setting for that lens. I use focus peaking but found that OOF areas with high contrast are still shown as being in focus. Wide angle MF can be really challenging, and I think I need more practice to build the necessary confidence.
