Is he crazy?  That 300mm f4 IS does not have a seal on the lens mount!

IS is awesome. That said, the lens you own is going to outshoot the lens you can't afford all day.  Seriously, there is always going to be more expensive equipment available.

Cool!  Definitely looks like a version II IS super tele, but does not appear to be a 300,400,500 or 600.  That just leaves the 800, and i have not seen a photo of that one.  it looks smaller than an 800 though.  I'd guess 500mm f4 by it's apparent size.

Nikon users call their 3 big pro lenses the "holly trinity".  14-24, 24-70, and 70-200.  I have read more than one Nikon user say they have the 14-24 and 70-200, and a 50mm f1.4.  They see no reason for the middle ground 24-70.

Me on the other hand, I love my 24-105mm f4 IS.

« on: February 16, 2012, 01:07:27 PM »

But if that's what it does, can it use the crop only lenses with a smaller image circle?  Or is that a problem for nikon as it would be a problem with ef-s lenses?

Yes, Nikon FF cameras can take their DX lenses and then default to "DX" mode.  The 12MP camera then take a 5.5MP or so photo.  Or when using FF lens, you can choose the DX mode for faster frames.

Canon has not done this and indeed EF-S lenses canon be used on FF cameras.

70-200mm f/4L IS would be my first choice to be honest.  But all of this really comes down to money.  The 70-200 2.8 IS II, is obviously the best, it's just a question of do you want to pay for it, and then do you want to carry it.  It's big and heavy, but awesome.

Obviously, the 5D was purposefully limited in some areas just to keep from cutting too many 1Ds sales.  AF was one of them.  I mean -2 to +2 on the exposure compensation instead or 3?  That's software for $@#$%#$ sake.

On the other hand, it is/was one hell of a camera for the money.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: DOF FF vs Crop...
« on: February 13, 2012, 10:10:33 PM »
But wait!, is light particles or waves?

Yup, FF menas shallower DOF vs cropped.  Yup.

And I go with Wave–particle duality btw.

Lenses / Re: What will the new mk. IV Canon Extenders have
« on: February 12, 2012, 04:27:32 PM »
The rear element need not float to mean you cannot use a teleconverter.  It basically just has to be in the way.  Plenty of Canon lenses have the rear element in the way, but not floating.

Nikon and Canon make their teleconverters this way, and 3rd party manufactures do not seem to.  I would asume Canon/Nikon do t for IQ reasons and 3rd party goes their way for cost/compatibility reasons.  But I don't see this changing.

This is Canon Rumors.  You are looking for Canon Rumor Rumors.  It's a site about rumors of when we will see other Canon Rumors.

EOS Bodies / Re: Latest Canon disappoints wants me to switch over to Nikon.

why can't people post negative things about canon on this forum? Im not slating canon, only to voice my disappointment. You sir seems to be rather narrow minded about your brand.

They can and do all the time. There are countless posts on topics like the 5DII's AF sucking, and more lately about the D800 being the canon killer.  Why can't someone else respond to your post with their opinion? 

I have had it with this forum, I am switching to VivitarRumors.com!

EOS Bodies / Re: What will a 5DMK3 with a 24-70L kit lens cost? (guesses)
« on: February 08, 2012, 02:38:41 PM »
Is it certain that the new 24-70II is going to be the kit lens for the 5D MkII successor?

No.  There is no solid info on a 5D3, and there has been rumors of it for 2+ years.  Which lens it will have as a kit lens is speculation on top of speculation, or people just really wanting it.

Kit lenses are rarely the best newest lens Canon has introduced.  My guess is if the 5D3 is offered as a kit, it will include the 24-105mm f4 IS as it's kit lens. (I'm not saying this is what I hope happens, just what I think will happen)
