Maybe a stupid question and maybe answered on those 4 pages, but is this a full frame lens?

IS on a 50mm? Why?

I shoot video, I need IS. The 35 f2 is already fantastic. A 50 w/ IS and the 135 w/ IS would be perfect matches.

Do you need a new camera right now? Do you need the new features right now? If not wait and see what the 7D2 actually will cost and offer and then make an informed decision.

The new AF system in live mode sounds very promising. Can't wait to see it in action.

Sounds exciting, but what does it mean? Clean at 12000 or 25000? Or even higher? Sounds promising for the 7D MII

Before I make any decision I will wait for the 7D M2. I am not in a hurry. I would have loved GPS and wonder why this is missing. Well, still just a rumor....

Not really revolutionary then. Wondering how long it takes for real new sensors.

If those are as good as the 35 I get both, looking forward to the release :-)

The focus ring could be loose maybe so it might need repaired.

BTW, does the distance scale on the lens move once you start turning the focus ring?

Hi, the distance scale doesn't move. It hangs...

I already talked with amazon and they are so kind to exchange for a new one. Took me some time convincing...because I have it already for 2 month....

Thanks to everyone for replying!

Lenses / Is my Canon lens defect?

I have a quite new 70-200 IS USM and have trouble with manual focus on it. If I turn the focusring the focussing doesn't follow fast and properly. E.g. if I try to focus manually from infinity to close focus then if I turn the focus at first nothing happens and then if follow but not with a constant movement.

Something must be really wrong or is it me?

About Munich - anything specific you want to see there? I personally don't like Munich that much and suggest you visit Nuremberg and close by Bamberg instead. Of course if you have something specific you are interested in Munich then it is different.

For me the idea of a small and lightweight DSLR seems quite attractive. I have used and worked with Sonys NEX-5 and have to say that I really prefer to look through the lens and not on a screen to compose pictures. That is why I am not really interested in the Canon EOS M either.

What is a little disappointing here is at first the sensor which seems to be the same as in the 60D, 600D, 550D and now used for quite some time and also the price point seems to be a little high. Well, the street price can be quite different but I would somehow expect it to be lower then 550D if this is the entry model. After all they called it "B"? Strange naming for sure.

I just switched late 2012 to Canon from Nikon. I was always shooting Nikon since 1991. Before that I was shooting Carl Zeiss Ikon.

Why did I switch? Back in the film days the film one used was in charge for the color rendition. Now its the camera makers, the sensors and the algorithms.

When I got my first digital DSLR I bought a Nikon - of course because I had all the lenses. But in 2011 and early 2012 I was trying on a long vacation ( 3 weeks in rumania) a Canon and a Sony next to my good old Nikon. I was shooting around 4000 pictures and afterwards I could tell for every one by just looking at it from which camera it came and which one I liked best - Canon.

So - I just got a Canon 5D Mark 3, 17-40, 24-105 and 70-200 all f4.

You understand that the camera doesn't have autofocus while recording, right? 

A simple way to remotely start/stop is to reassign the shutter release to start stop video (you can do this in the menu) then use a timelapse remote or other shutter trigger to start stop.

Hi everyone,

Thanks a lot for all the feedback. Yes I understand that the camera doesn't focus while filming. So basically I want to record myself "sharp" with no one else to support me. I will look into the RC6 and how I can make it working for me.
