EOS Bodies - For Stills / No Focusing Screens for 5D MIII?
« on: March 02, 2012, 08:16:18 AM »
From the specs it appears that the new 5D essentially shares the same viewfinder as the 7D and that interchangeable focusing screens will no longer be available (they also don't show up on the Canon site as they do with the 1D X). 

This is likely a deal breaker for me as manual focusing through the viewfinder with the standard focusing screen, and the 7D focusing screen, is practically impossible to do accurately with fast aperture lenses.  Specifically, Zeiss lenses will be much more difficult to use.  Anyone who claims otherwise isn't as critical of focus as I am, because when a viewfinder can show a DOF no wider than f5.6, getting critical focus at f1.2 requires trial and error at best.

Yes, you can still use LiveView, but that is only practical when shooting from a tripod (landscapes, for example).  It's too awkward to use LiveView in normal shooting conditions (for me anyway).

I'm sure I'm in the minority here, but I find this to be a bummer.

EOS Bodies / 1DX and focusing screens
« on: October 30, 2011, 02:19:42 PM »
Has any one seen any info on whether or not interchangeable focus screens will be available for the 1DX?  Given that the viewfinder has an electronic overlay like the 7D, I'm guessing we will be stuck with the standard focusing screen like the 7D as well.  This will be unfortunate for those of us that manually focus a lot, as the standard focusing screen blows for it and is damn near impossible to use at large apertures.

Any word on this?

Lenses / Lens Price Increases Taking Affect
« on: January 28, 2011, 10:14:51 PM »
Looks like B&H and Adorama are applying the rumored Canon price increases.  Many lenses have gone up a decent amount.  I noticed that their Macro flashes have also increased.
