28-135 won't cut it. Go for primes or an 18-135 EFS. If you want EF, go for a 24-105L. You'd appreciate the its much better performance and build.

I guess that the Adorama sale on the G1X is over. On Sunday, I bought the $799 bundle deal they had which included printer, and software along with a $400 rebate. (Its back up to $1288 now)
This came out to $399 net, and I can sell the printer for $250 and the software for $30, so after thhat I paid about $120 for it. If I like it, I'll sell the G11 I now have for about $300, and end up with $150 or more back from the deal.
Unless you are desperate, keep an eye out for more deals like that as the holidays approach.
I hope my camera did not get destroyed by the storm. Adorama shows it as pending, and shipping is likely to be delayed for a few days. I'm in no hurry though.
i have Canon 5D MK II, what is the difference between MK II & MK III anyway?
Having the latest technology is great. But is there anything wrong with the 5D2 and 1D4? If not, might as well save up the money and wait for the next generation of bodies. The ones you have still hold their ground at this point in time.
Some of Canon's problem is the world economy...but much of it has to do with the RIDICULOUS prices that Canon is attaching to MANY of their products. WAY out of line with their competitors. I feel some massive rebates coming on sometime soon...I for one am buying NOTHING Canon until the company gets real...I bought a 5DIii 4 months ago...and now see it online for $700 less than I paid for it? Canon....that is insulting to your customers. I expect the price to drop...but nothing like this. Also delivering products that are far below their hardware capabilities and having hackers embarrassingly shoewng your own firmware ?
Everyone...let's do a Canon boycott for 6 months...right thru the holidays and bring this arrogant behaving company to its knees!
These price drops may not be good for early adopters. That's why patience is always a virtue. But you had enjoyed your camera 4 months earlier than the rest of us. Right?
To me...it should be 1st come 1st serve, regardless when you placed your order.
Adorama has a combo deal for the G1X, it includes the camera, printer, and adobe software for a net price of $399 after $400 rebate.
I've been looking for the price to drop to something reasonable.
If I sell the printer and software, its a better deal yet.
As expected, the price of 5D3 is now equal to D800... it may fall even further in time to come... Canon has already recovered some of their manufacturing costs from the early adopters.

...Basically, this whole thing is just trying to let some of you see that there are reasons to switch. The world is not black & white. There are many people in all sorts of different situations and with different needs and in different financial circumstances. It's not as easy as "X reviews better than Y!"... there are more variables...
There are reasons to switch and reasons to stay,
So make a choice and go away.
