Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Tamaron 24-70 f2.8 Review
« on: May 11, 2012, 03:35:02 PM »
;DI purchased the Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 VC on 5/4/12 for $12889.00.
Seems legit to me ::)  $12889.00 for Tamron 24-70 f2.8 VC.

That includes tax  ;D

This lens is definitely on my want list.  Nice to know about FOV difference.

What exactly do you mean "somewhat" popular? That movie is already at $210 million at the box office after its first weekend and has 93% score on RT.

That would be sarcasm sir. :)

Whoa, I missed it too, and I'm not just a member of the sarcasm club for the internet, I'm the President :D

Software & Accessories / Re: Manfrotto Monopod

I bought a monopod first because it seemed like a good idea, didn't really use it.

Once I got a good (carbon) tripod setup, I figured the monopod wasted money.

Suggestion:  Get a quick-release tripod ring for the 70-200 and leave it mounted --- I've recently found use for the monopod in this way and it keeps it light and usable.

Russian Blue.

August this year, my ex-baby (nyow my sister's baby) will be 20 years old!

I dunno what it's called, but there's this green square that works better than the rest.



Seriously though, Av for me most of the time these days.

It's great everyone is so supportive of Canon's efforts  ;D

Hrm, is this her or another one?

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Canon EOS 60Da in Stock at B&H

Well, does it take regular pictures as well as the 60D or is a mod required?

Does it have application beyond astrophotography (artsy IR shots etc)?

If you are good at taking those types of photos and know how to move product, the price tag isn't all that much (compared to everything else Canon announces these days).

The 60D and 7D are in NO need of an update.  ::)

If they bring a new sensor out for the 700D then there will be a need for update. The 60D needs updating to bring it back in line the XXD previously were. Was a disappointment for most XXD users. I agree with the 7D but then it would be nice to have a better sensor in it. I would buy it then. No point in buying something new for the IQ to be worse than previous models.

Honestly, a 7D with nothing more than the Digic V would be a notable improvement.  Not 'sell your 7D' improvement, but it would definitely be worth putting out if there was nothing else in the pipes.

From another thread:
Note that there are two 'flavors' - Digic5 and Digic5+.

The new Digic 5 processor is 6X faster and creates 75% less noise than the Digic 4 processor.

Compared with the predecessor, Canon's DIGIC 4 Image Processor, the Dual DIGIC 5+ Image Processor offers approximately 17x faster processing speed, and feature new algorithms that promote greater noise reduction at higher ISOs.

Looking back, they could easily get away with making a 70D that's only improvements were Digic5 and re-adding MFA . . .

Lenses / Re: 24-105 - versions?
« on: April 27, 2012, 09:04:16 AM »
If ANYONE is going to know, it's Roger over at LensRentals.

When they sell their stuff, they mention when the date code is 'good'.

That said, I don't recall seeing that comment on any of the 24-105s for sale.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 5D Mark III Light Leak Resolution (Canon USA)
« on: April 24, 2012, 08:55:19 AM »
BTW my 5D2 is affected as well. Can I send that back?

Me too! I feel ripped off.  All of my lens-cap photos were garbage. I thought I was just bad at taking pictures.

You know, it's crap like this that makes me yearn for low-end rebel and powershot announcements . . .

Congratz on front page though :)

Technical Support / Re: Canon 7D Unusual Problem?

I would make sure the camera is off when opening either the battery compartment OR the SD slot on general principal, but that's just me.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 5D Mark III Product Advisory
« on: April 13, 2012, 04:21:01 PM »
This information is for residents of the United States and Puerto Rico only

What about Europe ?
Same problems with the 5D mark III in Europe.

I would assume each country is accountable to respond in a way they feel is best to reach its customer.  So just mean Canon Europe would need to issue a comment as well...could not see this in one country and not the next!

Correct.  In E.U. Countries, Canon will be forced to go door-to-door with a physical hat in their hands to apologize.   ;D

Hrm, why was US pricing lower? :)

Will these new model have the same faith as the 1DX and be available in 6+ month!?!?!?!?

Honestly, the T5i will be announced before all of the new $3500+ body supply issues are sorted out.  Let's hope Canon isn't spreading themselves too thin financially and manufacuturing-wise.  If there's any significant delay on availability of the new lower end rebel(s) after announcement, then the answer would appear to be 'yes'.
