Lenses / Re: Review: Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS
« on: June 30, 2014, 10:33:21 PM »
damn you guys just gave me GAS, here comes a 16-35mm F4 :)   

i like doing landscapes so far i have been using the 24-105mm will i like this lens? is the IQ going to be noticeably better?

I wish i could see what Canon has in R&D ,i really think they have something very advanced but they want to milk small updates on each camera release at one point they will run out of what to update and finally give us a intervalometer in camera :)

i just toss mine in the backpack i thought this is one of the reasons they are build with that magnesium alloy body. When i had the 550d then i was more careful that thing felt very weak all plastic.

Agree -- the 5D3 body will 95% likely be fine, but there are other features to consider.  I've had a lot of lens caps fall off when I just throw it in a bag with other contents, once resulting in a scratched filter (thankfully not the lens' front element).   Also, multipurpose bags like backpacks and messenger bags often carry 'other' cargo that can leave junk, crumbs, dirt, dust, etc. which can scratch an LCD or do a number on the grippy bits.

For me, I don't like loose items clawing at any part of the camera when it's in a bag, so I usually use the previously linked Tenba photo insert.  I'm not arguing my way is better -- it's entirely personal preference. 

However, when I'm in a hurry or if I need a mixed payload of camera + 'other' in the bag (clothes, work items, pens, etc.), I sometimes just wrap the 5D3 + lens with a winter hat and call it good.  I've had zero issues with that thus far, but I do admit I baby the bag a bit more in that arrangement.

ahh i miss read the original post, i use a camera backpack :) but when i don't i usually have some sort of clothes inside and i use that to wrap the camera so the screen or top lcd don't get scratched.

what's the buffer like? imagine you can do 24fps at 39MP and turn that into some high resolution video.

Wonder if we'll see a product advisory from Canon with the white rubber turning black...

more like these where black and Canon just selling them as white cameras :).

Apple have thousands of patents awarded each year (the system in the US is different to Europe where it is harder to get a unique patent) but that still didnt stop the stock market marking Apple down recently. Sony also have  thousands of patents every year likely as many as Canon.

Apple had less than 2,000 US patents issued in 2013, around 1,200 in 2012, and just over 800 in 2011.  Apple has ~7700 patents total.  Canon has averaged over 2,000 patents per year for the past 15 years (meaning they've had more patents granted in the past 4 years than Apple has had since the Steves founded the company). Canon has been in the top 5 worldwide for issued US patents each year for >20 years.  In other words, they have a long history of innovation.

Apple is trading recently much closer to its 52-week high than to its 52-week low.

Regardless, the point is that you seem to be implying that Canon is not innovating, and that's simply not the case.

It seems like they are innovating in AF and some other stuff but what everyone means is they want Canon with a better sensor then Sony's. I am sure Canon has something its just how long does it take to make and are they still working on it? even the high MP canon is still not out to compete with Nikon so i am sure they have something and waiting for the right time to release it. I am perfectly happy with my 5d iii but if i had the chance to get something better then Sonys sensor or even close to the same i would want it but that's eventually going to be on Canons system.

Could Canon just be milking out the profits on the current sensor tech? and just waiting until the last moment to release there new sensors?

never used a EVF is it like the live view on the back? is it going to show blown out areas? i don't know doesn't sound so great maybe i am wrong maybe it can make some things easier to see the exposure before you take the shot just not sure how it is. How is it in low light?

i always wanted this for 5d mark iii

A new function to keep the exposure constant by altering the ISO or shutter speed in manual exposure, when the aperture value changes when zooming or changing lenses has been added.

cant use Manual with 100-400L since the aperture changes while zooming.

with ML it shows RAW histogram that and you can get auto ETTR if you want.

only time i cant shoot manual is if i shoot kids soccer with 100-400mm when i am zooming the aperture changes, rest of the time manual i use the metering to get me close then i adjust for perfect settings.

Quadro comes with drivers and firmware that are optimized for graphics applications not for games that's all your paying for that's why a Quadro cant run games like a Geforce.

What about weather sealing on 3rd party grip comprising camera?

From what i read Canons grip for 5d3 is not sealed water will easily get inside.

i had similar experience with Canon, I dropped a 10-22mm lens and it basically split in the middle glass looked okay i emailed them and told them what happened expecting to pay to repair it but in the end they fixed it and sent it back with the fastest shipping all for free :) they replaced the housing. Most companies would even  try to blame warrantable problems on user.
