The 200mm 2.8 is nice incognito, but it gets warm in the sun . . . tradeoffs.

The rumor didn't say the same sensor, just Olog-hai there preemptively complaining.
well we are not all braindead fantasy freaks who believe in miracles... gaffer gamgee.
my last 5 predictions were dead on.. i would be glad to be wrong this time... but i doubt it.
the first APS-C camera from canon to have a new sensor design will be the 7D MK2.
If this is accurate, I don't know why there would be a need for much "final testing" if the 70D is to have the same sensor as the 60D.
I'm also not sure why everyone assumes that the 70D and 7D II will share the same sensor if the 70D gets a sensor upgrade. Canon has three sensors in three full-frame bodies. It's very possible we could see a new 22-24 mp sensor in the 70D and then an 19-22 mp sensor in the 7D II.
You have to look at the intent.
The aspect of altering photos that gets to me is when a photo is faked to be misleading. It can be done with or without photoshop.... like a news story about a car accident where children are hurt and someone throws a big stuffed animal into the scene to try to make it a tear-jerker.
If the altered picture is so silly as to be unbelievable, I can accept that it is in good fun, but not the sneaky ones that attempt to deceive.
For example, big storm and flooding hits New York... Photos start to appear like the shark swimming in the subway and on flooded streets.... those are attempts to deceive. The one of the Statue of Liberty hiding behind the pedestal as a huge wave crashes against it or the ones of Godzilla are obvious fakes with no intention to deceive.
If I took a moonlanding picture, added something to the image like a wire, and started to claim that it was proof that the moon landing was faked in a studio, that would be an attempt to deceive..... while Lucky the cat in the picture is obviously not.
I didn't trust my 5DII - I always took multiple shots so I could pick the the best.
I trust my 1D X - I always take multiple shots because I leave it set to 12 fps, and even a brief press of the shutter fires off 2-3 frames. I agree that sorting through them is a bit annoying, as I really don't need to delete due to missed focus. But with kids, it helps because I almost always get one with no blinks.
It does S___ me blind when people compare camera phones to pro gear stating categorically that they are just as good.Take a look at the "no 7D2 in 2013" thread..... I posted pictures of the moon from a 60d and from an iPod to end a ridiculous "gear does not matter" debate. Although phones can take great pictures, particularly in the right conditions, once it gets a bit more challenging there is no substitute for a "real" camera.
Just when I got that 400 mm f/2.8 IS II...
Lol, and I got the 600 II. But that meets my needs more than the 200-400, since 840mm f/5.6 is better for me than 560mm f/5.6.
I'd still like an updated 100-400L, though, as a more portable option.
I use kaesamann B&W filters because I want to get years of use out of them. Plus, I've noticed less cast with them than other tiffen and Hoya filters.
