Is there any real world data?  Will they increase effective buffer in a 1Dx? or download any faster?

He is saying this website is not very good, but still is posting here.  He posts something that really is not answering the question, or is useful... to set a example??

so in short he complains that on a RUMOR site not every news make it to reality?

ah... i see.  ;)

I see said that blind carpenter as she picked up the hammer and saw.  :o

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon New vs. Refurb

Never had a problem with a refurb (or new item for that matter).

Consider that after a month or so, your new camera will be in refurb condition  ;D

If you need reach, go with a crop sensor.

If you need low sensitivity, go with a full frame sensor

If you have EF-S lenses, stick with a crop sensor.

Canon General / Re: Canon USA Changes the CPS Program
« on: September 15, 2013, 03:30:51 PM »
Compared to NPS, I am very pleased with CPS  My only major wish is CPS would help us get newly released equipment such as 200-400.

Other than that, I am pleased with the program.  It could always be improved, but everyone's desire would be slightly different.

Lenses / Re: Why are Zeiss lenses manual?
« on: September 15, 2013, 03:23:07 PM »
I hear about the great Zeiss lenses, and read the great reviews on them.

My question is, why do they ONLY seem to do manual focus lenses? Could they not really clean up on the high end market by making them work with the Canon/Nikon AF systems???

Thanks in advance,


Here is the real reason why Zeiss does not make AF-Lenses for Canon and Nikon:
From the Zeiss Q&A:
Because of the patent situation, it is not currently possible to offer a ZEISS AF lens for the other camera systems with EF and F mounts
And also:
In its collaboration with Canon and Nikon, ZEISS currently is not even licensed to use the autofocus interface on the camera.

This is the correct answer, the others are just guessing.  Zeiss does not wish to reverse engineer a lens and end up with a poorly focusing one like some other third party lenses.  They do have a agreement with Sony, and make AF lenses designs for Sony.  They don't actually make the Sony lenses, just license their design and their name.

How does Tamaron, Sigma, etc make AF lens for Canon and Nikon?

Lenses / Re: LENs and Camera in a warm/high temp room
« on: September 15, 2013, 02:46:48 PM »
I keep my camera keep in a spare bedroom with my computer, etc in our 100 year old house - only occasionally air conditioned.  Room hits 80+ in the summer (air conditioning keep the temp to around 80-84).

I would rather the room be dry and slightly warm versus humid and cooler

Landscape / Re: Milky Way near the moon?
« on: September 15, 2013, 02:44:03 PM »
This is the reason pictures of the moon taken by the Apollo astronauts do not show the stars... contrary to the beliefs of some conspiracy theorists  ::)

they were shot in a hollywood studio?  Actually if there were, then there would have been stars!

Technical Support / Re: Internet upload sppeds????

Hi Canonshooter,
DSL is only 3/4 of the description of your service, sounds like you have ADSL, Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line, it is usual for upload to only be a small fraction of the download speed. To get round this you would need SDSL, Symmetric DSL which generally has as the name implies equal upload and download speeds, you better need it though as it is usually expensive.

Cheers Graham.

thanks. I have seen ADSL did not understand what the A really meant (knew A stood for Asymmetric but I failed to think about it).  I have never seen SDSL.

nice shot.  Might try HDR to help reduce highlights from buildings overly bright lights
