$2,099 - $2,399 is my guess for this, just based on inflation alone, and that assumes that $1899 was close to correct back in '08

I love using the 70-200 2.8 that i got last year during the holiday rebates. I imagine IF - and that's a big IF - it is released, then I'll start seriously looking at it either 1-2 years down the road during another holiday season rebate.

Oooo ooooh a CR2 rumor for the 100-400L MkII.  Where have I seen one of those before?  Oh, was way back in October, 2010

In the meantime, I've missed so many shots like this:

Yeah well... How about this CR3 from 2008??

Canon EF 100-400 f/4-5.6L IS [CR3]
It's coming
The source that spoke of the 5 new lenses from Canon claims the 100-400 is indeed getting an upgrade. It'll be slightly faster and possess a 5 stop IS. He wasn't sure whether or not it would be a push/pull design or not.

Canon EF 100-400 f/4-5.6L IS = $1899 USD


Mine is covered as part of my personal property insurance within my renters' policy. I definitely suggest calling around.

Definitely some nice images.  I always look forward to reading your posts. Definitely safer to risk the camera and not yourself at horseshoe bend.

Rebel xTi and EF 70-200 2.8 IS II
Constructive comments and critique always appreciated so I can continue to improve
I like the colors and I like what (I believe) you are trying to do. But to give you some feedback, I believe there is a bit too much pine in the left and bottom part of the image. I would crop it enough to have the chest of the bird in focus  in upper right rule-of-thirds cross point. The you would get attention to the birds, but you would still get the depth and the proper surroundings for the two birds. If you had managed to get the focus point just a little further away from you, you would have had the other bird in focus as well.

Thanks for the comment and advice. You certainly read my mind with the effect I was trying to achieve.

It's nice having a bird feeder with lots of trees around for these smaller birds to hide in.  Better results will come the more I practice and listen to the community here.  Here is another shot, just have to get that branch out of the way.  ;)

Same situation over here. Input tracking number, refreshing the webpage at least once an hour. Shows a shipping weight of just over 6lbs. A lot of padding in that box...

or maybe they threw an extra lens in the box by accident?  ;)

My Lens is scheduled to be delivered today :) eagerly waiting
Oh yes, the joy of 'soon to arrive' new lens, always exciting.

first L glass purchase! just ordered this from b&h. :D :D :D

I used this lens on a t3i over the weekend at B&H and was blown away. Time to wait for it to fall just under $2k like it has the past two years after the holiday season.

were you also the one holding the bird? if so, that must have been difficult to shoot left-handed   :P

Wow, some great pics in this thread, here's one of mine. Shot with the 50mm f/1.2L

just a matter of time....

And particularly with the touchscreen interface, it really should not matter where the touchscreen is... on the back of a camera, a phone, or a tablet with a large enough screen to see decent images from liveview. The screen on a DSLR body will NEVER be as good as an iPad or similar screen.

When mentioning the iPad, are you referring to the size of the screen or the other aspects of it (dpi, color rendition, etc)?

If you are referring to size, I agree. Reviewing on a larger screen is always preferred. However, I do think that that the screen on the back of the 5D3 that I played with in a store is pretty darn good, especially compared to the xTi of '07.

Landscape / Eclipse for Australia!!!

Calling for help from the Aussies of CR.

If you plan on photographing the eclipse, please post some images you capture. Looks like the majority of the globe won't be able to experience it. Posted two links below that might help anyone with timing.

PS: Please take caution when shooting into the sun.

Give both a try and see which you like better. I personally use Lightroom.

I had asked a while ago for advice on photographing Chickadees. I got lots of useful advice on setting up blinds, use of long lenses, remote triggers, etc. It turns out that what I needed was a pocket full of sunflower seeds.

Taken with a 60D, 100L macro lens, ISO320....while using the camera one handed :) This is the full picture, no cropping.

this is awesome, nothing like having them eat out of the palm of your hand

The OP said he bought the 5d3 with the kit 24-105.

24-105 = general lens = check

The fisheye is definitely a specialty lens though.

I dont know what kind of photography you do,

but it seems you're missing an all around general lens - 24-70L II f2.8 (highly recommend)
and fisheye 8-15L f4, not recommended for everyone, but it's one coolest lens in my kit
