Too bad the tamarin review did not compare this lens

Looking to under how my flash works. Like how does high spec synch work in detail- number of times it slashes at different shutter speeds, why does it go into high speed synch at 1/250 in Av mode but not M mode.
English. Do you speak it?
He sounded somewhat believable until he started going on about the amazing high ISO performance. I mean yeah the 1DX high ISO is very good.... BUT so is the D4 that he has! The 1DX high ISO is no better at all than his D4 and the 5D3 high ISO is worse than the D4 high ISO (although the extra MP on the 5D3 helps a bit in some ways). And failed to mention one thing he'd bring over from Nikon other than the shutter feel.... the dynamic range difference at low ISO where the Nikon actually is much better. So then you start thinking about all the money dangling above his head again.
I do like Canon's UI a lot better myself though.
Canon are lazy. They are currently just using the same numbers they had in the 1980's and 1990's, but with a "D" tacked on the back. Given that they are moving to EVFs in the next couple of years, I suspect that they'll go back to the start, but replace the "D" with an "E" (for EVF, Evolution etc). We'll have "C", "D", and "E" cameras, and it will be immediately obvious what type of camera it is.
I don't get this. Is this post saying that they are continuing to split the 1D product line? I thought the 1DX was created to be the camera that could do it all, so wouldn't it make sense to just upgrade the 1DX?
I expect the top model of any product to be full-featured, containing everything that's available in any of the lower models. Any departure from that is a serious design failure.
As the Dalai Lama said to the New York hot dog vendor, make me one with everything.
I guess you'll never buy one, then. The 1-series bodies don't include a green square/full auto mode, nor do they have an IR receiver for the RC-# remotes. The lowliest xxxxD has both of those features.
Why is it that I'm getting this feeling Canon went out of its way to integrate the Eos 1D and 1Ds series into the 1 DX, and now everything is going back to the D and Ds format again?
(that's Lexar new 256GB Professional 3333x CFast™ 2.0 card) and the answer can change to "1"
That's a whole lot of eggs that will fit in that one basket. I think I recall my momma saying something about that…
That is freaking awesome! I'll have to try that for my 600/4 L II. I assume that is either a 500 or 600 in your Bataflae?
