I also have a 5DIII. The 24-105 is a very, very good lens. It is good at everything but it is the best at nothing. You can find a prime that will do any task better. Today I hauled around a bag of lenes and left this home. I ended up with some good shots, but kept changing lenses.95% of what I took was between 24 and 105. So I ended up cutting a photowalk short because I was tired and on top of that I got some dust on the focusing screen because I was constantly changing lenses in the wind. I should have just taken the 24-105L. Larger point. If you are going for a walk about, this is your lens. If you are going to a specific event, with a specific task, you can probably find something better. Public speaking? I'd go with the super sharp 135 f2L, but you will give up the IS. Keep your 24-105L. Leave it on your camera unless you have a specific task.
Start with a 50mm F1.4 (Sigma/Canon or a 40mm pancake though I like the F1.4 more than F2.. You can acquire later whatever you think you need. You can also sell it if you find out later that you don't need it. A 24-105 F4 L is also a good start. You can sell it later if you don't need it also without losing much (maybe gain a little bit more if you purchase it as a kit lens).
They will probably go bankrupt before the end of the year.... but what seems to to be hard for many is that it now seems that this particular third party lens is actually better than its original counterpart...
Canon has been over taken in the sensor department by Sony/Nikon and now they're being overtaken in the lens department.
1.8 + OS = dont think so!!!!
So lets see if I understand this... The 7D2 MIGHT be 21 megapixels, or it MIGHT be 24, or it could possibly be 18. And the 70D MIGHT have one of those sensors.... or it could be something else.....
Yeah, I know... sounds like a company that knows what it is doing, doesn't it?
I love it when this site gets interpreted as if the url is canonfacts.com
ALL OF THIS STUFF IS SPECULATION PEOPLE. HEAR SAY. ANECDOTAL EVIDENCE. A DUMPING GROUND FOR PROTOTYPE SPECS THAT WILL NEVER SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY. THIS SITE IS FOR YOUR ENTERTAINMENT - THAT'S IT. STOP BASING YOUR HAPPINESS OFF OF WHAT YOU READ HERE.
I'm really excited about this lens, and I don't even own a crop body. I'm excited about the implications for the future. If this lens can be produced and has good optics (which will be the real issue), it raises so many interesting implications for the future.
A 27-55mm, or even 27-50mm f/1.8 FF lens would be absolutely amazing if it had good optics. Once the technology is out there, reverse engineering means that this advance will soon be in the hands of other manufacturers. The very nature of putting out an APS-C only lens means that the price has got to be somewhat reasonable, as there are not (to my knowledge) many APS-C lenses over a thousand dollars US.
I remember back in the day in San Francisco, there were these independent electronic stores along Market Street. They were generally rip off stores designed to get tourists. One of the stores had a large sign out that said...
GOING OUT for BUSINESS!
The capitalized letters would be like 3 feet tall and the for was a tiny word easily mistaken for the word "of". They wanted to make it look like they were liquidating their merchandise when that is their everyday strategy.
Another business type that does permanent going out of business sales seems to be the Persian Rug market. Great deals...every day!
This sounds like a sweet upgrade from the 60D. I bought the 50D over the 60D because of the body-design and materials. Even though it was lower-spec in some ways. Add WiFi, GPS, weather-sealing, 6.5fps and Digic 5? I'd seriously consider it if I wanted a crop-camera..
It is full of the latest "bling" that consumers crave - who cares if it takes good pictures or not, just as long as they're better than my iPhone.
