The t3 plus kit lens was selling at 300 @Christmas time.  If you consider the lens is called at$100 New,  the the body is only worth around$200 which isn't much. 

This will bring up the value of their entry level line.  And having said that... it is entry level.  What do people expect?  It is supposed to be capable but leave you wanting more.

No, it means a makeover , lipstick, curly hair, a new dress, blush and all the trimmings. Then he must pay for all new gear buy sleeping with Nikon fanboys.. Oh, the horror...

I hate in movies when I see a "pro" photog rocking a t2i... or something silly like that.  Sure there are some... but not as it relates to the context of the movie.

- May I help you ? - I'm just checkin' some L lenses out.

              Are you looking for something in particular ?

              No. Well, yeah. Something... with pretty bokeh and reach. 200 f/2, 200-400 x1.4, 85L...

              Yes.

              - You got nice stuff. - Thank you.

              - How much is this ? - I don't think this would fit your body.

              Well, I didn't ask if it would fit. I asked how much it was.

              How much is this, Marie ?

              It's very expensive.

              - It's very expensive. - Look, I got money to spend in here.

              I don't think we have anything for you.

              You're obviously in the wrong place.

              Please leave.

Canon EOS Kiss X70 Specifications:

    18MP APS-C sensor
    DIGIC 4

    3 fps

Looks like recycling of older sensors....

Looks actually pretty similar to the 550D  / T2i....     my camera has just gone up in value, it's current again ;-)
That's what I was thinking... the t2i has just been redesigned with a new a new name.  Maybe different size... but it isn't anything new... unless I'm missing something.  Toy camera DOESN'T COUNT!

you know I've gone full circle I really really wanted it and now I don't know.

I'm confused: did you go full circle or only half-circle?   Full circle is when you're back where you started (you wanted it, then you didn't, now you do again.)   ;)
I'm at 540 degrees at the moment.... so full circle and change.

is the Sigma 50 going to be on par with the Canon 100 L or is it new standard?

I have sharp lenses.

I'm not sure I get the comparison between a 50/1.4 and a 100/2.8  ???

I'll bust out my depth of field calculator.... and it's broken. 

I suppose my point is that if the 50 and the 100L at a similar depth of field are equal in sharpness and the pettiness of the bokeh... I may pass.  I realize they are different focal lengths with different innate properties... but still.  It the 50 v my new 135L.  I suppose what I'm saying is that I was something transcendent for my money.

I just picked up the 100L macro and I don't find it that sharp, I was using it for portraits and I'm thinking I may go back to 85L and return the 100L. The sigma 35 is sharper then the 100L so there's a good chance the Sigma 50 will be sharper too. I need this bad boy to be released already.

Really...? I had two 100 Ls and I've loved them both.

Canon General / Re: So much redundancy...

Back in my days formative days I listed to a friend of mine complaining (ranting) that his 28-70mm lens and 80-200mm lens left a gap between 70 and 80mm and he id not know how to fill that gap.  He was quite upset about it.  I pointed out the gaps between 0 and 28mm and 200mm and infinite, but he explained nobody needed to shoot wider than 28mm  or longer than 200, but, what if he needed a 75mm one day!…

Anyway, I don't think there is a problem owning 2 lenses that have the same focal length as long as those lenses each serve a purpose.  Just don't be obsessive about it.  If a lens is not being used ever, then by all means sell it.

That's funny.  I'd be more concerned about the 16-28 and the 200-400... than the 70-80 gap. 

Speaking of... when is the 200-400 1.4x coming down in price?

Think I will have to try it couple times in the shop, to make sure it's worth it, lol.
I want to go to nyc and spend a few hours trying on gear at b&h... though I have a small concern that they will pretty woman me.

There's something about a lens in your collection that never gets used and is, as you say redundant, that gnaws away at the back of your brain. The 85mm 1.8 was like that for me.

I feel like I have just the right amount of overlap between the zooms now with just a few choice primes at carefully chosen focal lengths. Finding those focal lengths was (is) a bit of a mission though!

Having the 135L I often wonder if I would also benefit from the 100L or if I should swap. Focal length wise the look is kinda similar and potentially the 100L could kill two birds with one lens. Portraits and macro. But there's just something about 135mm @ f/2 that is soooo creamy and bokehlicious that you just can't give it up!

Keep them both I say.

I remember the first time I heard about the 135L.  I couldn't ever imagine paying that much for a lens... especially at 135mm.

The 85mm sold... so there's a little less redundancy in my life.

I hope Sigma decides to take on everything Canon and Nikon has to offer, if it's better or cheaper of both. As long as the lens does the job, I really don't care which name is on the box, but I do care about what I saved of money to put into other purchases.

I agree... I have a Rokinon fisheye that is really good... and I grew bored with the focal length, but I don't care that it isn't a Canon or what have you... though it does have a red ring around it.

People often mention it... expose to the right... so you over expose your image a little and then in post move it back... less grain... more info that's not lost...
