Buttons are easier to seal than a dial.
Nonsense; put an o-ring around the axis and be done with it.

If I have components of my EOS system sitting around for too long, I usually sell it so there's not much stuff just sitting around. My least used EF mount lens must be my Sigma 20mm F1.8 DG Aspherical RF - but I love that lens nonetheless and keep it for the odd special occasion that I need a really wide and bright lens. Astonishingly it also (almost) does macro with its crazy close focusing ability.

Other stuff I have that doesn't get used is two FT-QL bodies and an AE-1 program that I keep for interest's sake. I own a bunch of FD and FL mount primes too but some of these occasionally find their way to my NEX-6 via mount adapter.

I have an old 40D which is a cracking camera, probably my favourite Canon camera of all time bar the 5DIII (5DMKIII is like a full frame 40D with better AF and had been waiting for it for a long time).

I agree on this, I went from a 40D to a 5DMkII (which very much is like is a full frame 40D), and then to the MkIII which is the improved FF 40D with better AF like you said. Of course both the 5D MkII and MkIII destroy the 40D when it comes to image quality.

A few non-living rear-ends...

Cool where did you take these?

Dear Friend Mr. Rienzphotoz.
Yes, You and Me have the same Point of Views/ Dirty old man----No, Not Dirty, but Sexy Old man.
Ha, Ha, Ha.

I may be mistaken but in this case isn't your point of view 'from the front end of the subjects'?  ;D ;)

Been enjoying pretending this lens is a macro lens. Using live view and a tripod more than I ever have!

That reminds me of my recent trip to Japan, the cherry blossoms really are as spectacularly beautiful as they say  :)

How about a return to the APS-H size sensor for the 7D Mk II ?
Not going to happen!

An APS-H camera can not use any of the APS-C lenses, does not have the "reach" of APS-C, and does not have the low light capabilities or IQ of FF. You get the disadvantages of both with none of the advantages of either.

You would be better off with a FF camera.

APS-H came about when FF sensors were hard to manufacture and expensive. Now, the cost difference would be minimal. The real question should be how long will APS-C last in DSLRs....

APS-C in DSLR's will stay as long as it offers the reduction in cost, lens size and weight. Until it is killed off by the mirrorless camera's of course which I think could happen because mirrorless is the realm of compactness and portability. To me, APS-C in DSLR's is dead anyway and I can't see any reason to go 'back' to that format for my personal needs.

An open question for me is, what full-frame camera will have essentially the 7D II's technology?

I see two options:

  • The 7DII is based off the 5DIII, and thus the 5DIII is the full-frame 7DII
  • The 7DII is an expansion of the 70D and the 5DIII, and thus the 5DIV would be the full-frame 7DII

I've shot for nearly a decade now with the 20D and 5D, which are very nearly the same camera with different sized sensors.  I REALLY like this approach.  I'd love a 7DII for high-frame-rate and long-reach applications and a full-frame version that's slower (because of the larger mirror and shutter) as it's partner.  Shooting this way has really proven to have merit for me, largely because I don't have to switch UI and camera behavior when switching bodies on the fly at an event.

Honestly, the 5DMkIII is a full frame 7D as far as the body style is concerned.

Hey guys. New here, thought I'd post a shot I took at Yosemite this month.

Took it with a 60D and 24-105 f/4L, stitched multi exposure. Actually, the cropped sensor framing of this shot annoyed me to the point that I now bought a new 5d mIII. So this was my last cropped sensor shot.

What a way to end! Magnificent ;)  Welcome to the forum!

Hi Ecka.
Really nice shot. A caption for 4242.
Are you taking pictures of me? How dare you!

Cheers Graham.

Thank you Graham.
The caption is more like "You better feed me after the shoot, or else ..." :)

I love the green eyes :) This is a great topic, keep them coming!

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 16-35 f/4L IS Sample Images

Just FYI, you can see a full-resolution jpeg of the samples by clicking on:  (点击此处查看大图)  located directly below each image.
-brought to my attention by Bryan over at TDP.
Doesn't look very sharp in the corners (photo of the white house and the church). Or am I a pixel peeper now and does it look better than the 16-35 f/2.8 II?

This new lens seems pointless to me - it's even longer than the f/2.8II and weighs almost the same. The 17-40 is the hands down winner for travel and portability in general. If I'm going to lug a WA that big, then it better have a 2.8 aperture.

one more thing - just checked the EXIF of one of the last pictures I hae - it does not contain the serial number.
Just to learn for the new cam to come in - is that a feature I need to actively enable? I do not recall that I turned it of, but you never know...

Check the exif data of a raw file in DPP, it contains the camera body number.

That s*cks :-[, hope you still have the pictures assuming you went to the US on a holiday?

Looks like a FUN lens for aps-c users!!! Thankfully I'm immune to EF crop lenses now so that saves me from a little bit of GAS :D
