I keep getting the following error while browsing the forum:

"Content Encoding Error
          The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression.

So...  er consider yourself informed? :)

using firefox and windows.

This really depends on what you shoot...  If you don't know which way the wind will take you, just getting a 24-105L for the moment until you see if you want wider or longer or just better in that range.

If i was in that situation i would get the 24-105L and 70-300L....  but as i said it depends what you shoot and  want!!!

Does anyone know if the EF-M lenses have a big enough image circle to work on a FF Sensor in a M body? If not, the emergence of a FF M is very very unlikely!

Lookign forward to seeing some reviews of this lens... if it is as good or better than the 10-22, combined with the 2.3x AF increase in the M certainly makes an appealing combo.

Does this mean there is not a new one coming out soon? 2.3x faster AF would certainly help...  the AF was the main reason I havn't got one...  lets see what people think of it once it is in the camera!

Interesting....  lets see how sharp it is.  All we need now is an M body upgrade...

The more I think about this, the more I think it would make sense to release this with a New EOS M  model? Wishful thinking?

My concern for the new lenses are size and weight.
More pancake lenses!

Agreed...  More pancakes all round please! on a side note I would also love to see a EF 20mm pancake.

one more thing ... in PARIS especially...
keep your kit VERY CLOSE -  I would run a little cable/lock thru the zippers on a back pack or carry in my front...
the little teenaged thieves are very clever and work in pairs in Paris... they partly unzipped our back pack TWICE at train station entrances ....EVEN when we knew they were there...

Nice bit of scaremongering there, and i would add a slight overreaction...  like any other city, the key is not to make yourself appear a target. I am British and have experienced exponentially more crime in London than in Paris, and i have never lived in London.

Paris is safe, just be as smart as you would be in any city...  Enjoy :)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: what to do

If i were you, i would sell both of your current lenses and put it towards buying a EF-S 10-22, EF 24-105 (2nd hand) and a tripod.

If and when you want to invest in a full-frame camera (6D, 5D etc...) you can sell the 10-22 for a descent return (it is a great lens) and you will already have a lens.

All of this depends on your budget though...

With extra cash i would grab the 70-200 f/4L IS and/or 17-40 f/4L.

there are lots of options, most are not cheap...  :)

Photo gear is like heroin...  be careful! :)

EOS Bodies / Re: Digitalrev speculates on D7100 vs. 7D2
« on: May 27, 2013, 07:41:17 AM »
I would guess the 7D II would be priced close to the 6D....  so you have to choose between FF or features/speed. if you want both you need a 1DX, which is the pro camera.

Only time will tell...  I'm just glad a got me a 5D mkiii and am not still waiting for this mythical beast!
