Bravo, Nikon. It's great to see boundaries being pushed in the MILC marketplace. If I had this specific need (ecotourism, snorkeling, etc.), I'd be all over it.

Really like that lens and it works well on crop and FF, with two different flavours ;-)Thanks for sharing. I always enjoy the pics you post!
Nope. Used same lens/body combo for about 6 months before finding the 1.2L for a bargain.I just read 50 1.4 review and completely have no idea why NOONE mentions about its huge problems with AF.I've never had this issue, at least not that I know of (also using a 5D3)... but I also don't necessarily do focus calibration tests. I take photographs of subjects, and if they're "off" I adjust (I've done this with my Sigma 35 1.4 slightly).
Anyone else have this issue?
Megan FoxIt would be a dead giveaway if the thumbs were visible in frame. (If you don't know to what I am referring, google it.)
100% Raw I need all the help I can get too cover my crap technique..You beat me to the punch. This is exactly my attitude!
Also keep in mind that with the Joby you need the UltraPlate to use it with an Arca head.Not true at all. As i mentioned in the thread referenced by the OP, I use the RRS B2-FAB-F with my arca plates. I assume most of the Black Rapid users employ the same solution.
I'm from Australia... Central America is not that closeTouché. If you are going to make it a photo-focused honeymoon, take your good equipment and just be smart. At the resorts where I stay, its not uncommon to see tourists with 1-series bodies hanging around their necks, so you won't be the only person there with nice gear. My vote goes for the simple and effective combo of 24-70 plus 70-300. I agree a fill flash is a good idea.
The consensus seems to be to take a telephoto over the UWA, which is helpful to know.When visiting the jungle with waterfalls, caves, large Mayan complexes, and whatnot - there are ample opportunities to use the UWA. But if you want to pack light, just reply on the wide end of the 24-70.
On a side note, I have been looking into Central and South America a lot lately. I have heard, though travel agencies, etc., don't really advertise it, that Belize has a lot of crime. A friend of mine just got back last week and I spoke with her yesterday and she confirmed that.While I have no basis to comment on the experience of your friend, I will respectfully disagree that Belize has a lot of crime. At least as an across the board statement.
I'm having a hard time selling the 17-55. Damn thing is in mint condition, cleaned by Canon inside and out and shoved straight back in the box. $799 but nada. I wonder if the Sigma 18-35 is swaying peoples decision?I've had the exact same problem for probably six months. Still no takers at $700.
