Is RAW worth it? - Yes...  as long as you want to edit them and get the most out of your images.
No - if you don't want to have to do any post-processing!

Can't wait!  I'm only interested in the putative new pancake (and that is for my wife, not me), but it still very exciting!

Lenses / Announcements before Photokina
« on: September 09, 2014, 01:33:29 AM »
Don't new announcements usually occur BEFORE a big even like Photokina?

If so, surely we should be getting press release notifications soon? Does anyone know of any NDA's finishing soon (even if they do not know the content of it)?

I'm super keen for the new pancake! :)

I find there is a direct correlation between my shutter count and the number of times in that period I have managed to head to a national park...  :)

For street and general photography my shutter count is low ('high' keeper rate, 2/5 perhaps), but when i go to a national park, it is more like 1/10-100! :)

From what i am hearing, it is US only...  but other countries have dropped a bit.  I just hope that it drops a bit here in India...  I've been saving a long time for my 500 f/4 and would be miffed to buy and then it loose value right away!

One fairly large foto company with a number of stores  in Germany has dropped the prices of the big whites (300 to 600 mm) by about 8%. That means rebates of 500 to almost 800 €.

Thanks...  i'm checking it here in India everyday, but still nothing! :(

Prices are dropping here in Australia too.
Local prices are pretty close to grey market + freight.

to be honest, I think it is stupid for canon not to at least match this price....

I'm not expecting the same special treatment as Canon USA, but at least some reduction would be nice...  :(

Lenses / Lens price drops around the world

We have all seen that Canon USA has reduced the prices of 26 lenses. Moreover, it is possible that this price-drop is permanent.

Has anyone heard of any other Canon branch doing likewise? I know the rest of us non-USA Canonites would love to see this....  Any rumours/thoughts?

I have cash for a 500L, and was about to pick one up when this happened...  I'm asking my contacts here in India if it will also be applicable, but no one seems to know. I guess i am not asking the right people! :)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7DMk II or the 1DMk IV

If i were you I would skip the second body and go for a better lens!

500 f/4 would be ideal! :) 

The 5D III is great for BIF, so grab better glass!
