I notice Sandisk has introduced a new Extreme CF card - package is gold. This could be old news, but wonder how fast these cards are compared to the Extreme Pro CF card (VPG-20 vs VPG-65) in a Canon 1Dx.

I am glad to hear that Canon may pro-grade weather-seal the 7D II. What I am looking for basically would be like a 1D X body except with a APS-C sensor -- I would love it if they would build in the vertical grip rather than making us buy an attachment. If Canon offered a pro-body with a 1.6x sensor as well as the full framer, that would be ideal. I like having both a 1.6 and full frame when shooting sports but the 7D isn't rugged enough. I do love my 7D, but I can't believe it's 4 years old already. I wish Canon would go a little faster.
Heads up.... just picked one up at B&H for $799.00....
I buy and sell lots of lenses and cameras. Having the original box not only adds to the resale value, it sells faster as well.
I always wonder when there is no box if its stolen, or if its a refurb. In some cases, there is a good reason for a used lens not having a box, but not often.
Unfortunately I see no evidence that this lens is real. Sure it would be nice to see, and I'm hopeful that Sigma is preparing to introduce more lenses like this, but this image proves nothing.
It is not a photograph. It is a software render of a 3D model. But that doesn't disprove the lens' existence: Sigma use renders like this as product images all the time.
But someone else could easily have created the model and rendered the image (using the same software?) to look like Sigma's images.
It would be an interesting lens option. Hopefully sharper than the EF 24-105/4 (and my experience with the Sigma GV lenses says that after calibration it probably would be). But at the same time bigger filters and increased weight (and possibly higher cost) would be negatives.
Like all these rumoured Sigma lenses, we'll have to wait and see. But fingers crossed!
Sorry for this topic, but I'm at the point where I want to upgrade to full frame after having a 600D for a couple of years.
I want it for 50/50 photo and video, I would get the 6D but the video on the MK3 is much more superior! I've not spent this much money on a camera before, hence my last minute doubts and hesitation!
Thoughts on if its even worth thinking about waiting on the Mark IV please!
hmmm... those look like zip fastener tracks top and bottom, and I don't think the "teeth" are teeth at all, though I don't know what they are. I'd guess we're looking at some sort of camera bag - maybe top-loading holster style.
A high-megapixel dual-pixel version of the 1DX and an 800F5.6 with a built in 1.4X teleconverter...... to make sure those bank accounts get depleted before Christmas
We know from the 70D that canon can put 40Mpixels onto an APS-C sized sensor.. all you need to do is read the two halves separately and there's your high megapixel sensor.... scale it up to full frame and you have 50M dual pixels... 100M single pixels... or set the gain different for each half and 50M pixels with 20 stops of dynamic range.... or bin a bunch together 20Mpixels with better low light performance....
The time will come when pixels get grouped/split according to need....
