Thanks... I hope they can fix it soon, i'm going to Kaziranga at the end of next week!
It took a ton of consideration when I bought the 70-200 is mkii... and that was two grand. I can't see a future where I pay 4 grand for a lens.
Would I consider paying a premium for a lens that is in the top of its class, but I think two grand is where that willingness starts to die out.
And at 400mm the Tamron looks sharper across-the-board compared to the Canon 70-200 II with a 2x TC.
So if you already have a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II (& you wanted to go longer) for about the same cost of both Canon Extenders, you can get the extra 400-600mm range and better sharpness by going with the Tamron?
If I'm understanding all this correctly, for someone like me who typically photographs "static" landscapes, this is a no-brainer right? At least until the Canon 100-400mm II becomes available...
in the last 18 months SHE has bought and surprised me with a 5DIII kit, 70-200 IS II, a 24L II, and a 17-40L.You are a lucky man
Do wives get more agreeable over time? Or is it that you don't realize, that it is you who have adjusted your desires to be more in agreement with her wishes as the years go by? I'm not married, but from what I know of them...well, I better hold my tongue on this!
