I'm no longer anxious about this...I purchased a Rokinon 14mm 2.8 to hold me over.
+1 but 17-40!

Email to Lexar didn't prove to be useful. All they did was say there weren't aware of any problems with this card and offered to replace.
Actually... I don't care about 50L v 50 art as much as I care about 50 art v 85L mkii.
So if anyone wants to compare those...
Sounds like apple Vs orange
Just received my Tamron 150-600 mm. To my vast disappointment, it would not focus beyond 300 mm unless I manually brought it close to focus. However, on a whim, I found that under the 5DIII AF menu, "Lens drive when AF impossible" was "OFF". When I turned it "ON", the lens focused just fine! So, save yourself some aggravation and change your settings before you dump the lens in the box and return it!!
Are here any practical Infos about the lower Distance Sharpness Problem of the 24-70 1:4L IS ?
I am not shure - do i need an 24-70 or not .
I´ve testet the 24-70 2.8L II from a Friend - very nice - but i would like an IS !
actually : 17-40 4L - 50 1.4 - and 70-200 4L IS
i realy like UWW - so an 12-24 would be a Dream .
Have a nice Day !
For tripods stability, portability (size&weight), cost and capacity are the main factors to consider and generally you should find you own balance.
I use Sirui T-2005x or T-005x (for APS-C cameras/small lenses) for travel; and Manfrotto 055XB for general use.
For the tripod heads, I have used both ball head and geared types. Ball heads allow faster positioning but if you are into high-precision positioning (like in the case of macro-photography) you should consider geared heads like:
- Manfrotto: 410 or 405 (I personally use 410 and very happy with it.
- Manfrotto: XPRO-3 (not a real geared head but friction controlled)
I find the quick release of Manfrotto more practical (spesifically faster) than the Arca-Swiss types. Just my 2 cents.
Do you know Berlebach, a german manufacturer of wooden tripods (which is a great and traditional material for tripods since it dampens vibrations very well):
I have the precursor of this one: http://www.berlebach.de/?bereich=details&id=265&sprache=english since years and I am very satisfied.
