"You can pick an A7r up for as little as $1700 used, A7s' used for as little as $2000."

Ever wondered why these owners are selling?

Is that cello full-frame or crop-sensor?

Why don't you copy your post to ThinkTank for their recommendations?

I have a Benbo.............. and a Benro!

Both are fit for purpose, and I would buy again.  Ditto for my Manfrottos!

Does this mean a Mark II might be imminent?  Why did nobody tell us?

EOS Bodies / Re: Eos7D mk2, How EXCITED will you be if . . .?

I'll wait for the MkIII.

I've run "carrying solutions" through my BS Reverse Demodulator, and it's come up with "bags".

Hope this helps.

I have various Manfrottos, even an original Benbo, but I'm glad I came across the Chinese Benro brand at the NEC a couple of years ago.  I now use one of their carbon fibre travel tripods almost exclusively.  It's light, sturdy enough, folds down small, and the price is right.  I'll bet they have a model that would meet your height requirements.

Will this feature be built-in to new C300's, or is it retrofit only?

Happy with my Benro head.  Although I haven't tried (or even seen) a Wimberley.

Let's hope this kicks loose a cross-device Aperture mega-application.  Apple has all the tools, and huge advantages with iOS7/OS X integration and a massive iPad population.  All it needs is some assertiveness, and possibly persuasion from its customer base - us!


I think the vast majority of dSLR owners simply don't see the need/utility.

Which is why I'm suggesting better promotion.  A campaign to show the benefits of owning even one extra lens would be an easier sell than upgrading a body. 

But on the other hand I can't be the only one with two EOS bodies and eight EF/EF-S lenses.

You're not!  Which is why people on this forum are not representative of the typical EOS users.

DARN! I have 2 bodies and 9 lenses.... I have to sell one off to be "normal"....

I have 2 bodies and 14 lenses... I'm ok being abnormal.   ;)

The point I'm labouring to make is that if the average EOS owner owns only 1.4 Canon lenses, then the opportunity for Canon is surely to sell them more.  This may require better promotion and/or more aggressive pricing.


There must be an awful lot of people who have only one lens, and don't really need an ILC.

At least a minority doesn't get a new kit lens with every body. A 24-70/105, 70-200, the odd prime paired with successively a 5D, 5D2, 5D3 and you're about to end up in the 1.5 lenses/body-group quite fast. And then you have 3rd party lenses, Canon wouldn't include those in the announcement. ;)

But on the other hand I can't be the only one with two EOS bodies and eight EF/EF-S lenses.
