United States / Re: Broken tripod collar
« on: August 02, 2012, 07:19:09 PM »
My ring (for my v1 lens) is broken EXACTLY the same way! I broke mine last month and have been trying to fix it at home. I tried glue, but it won't tighten. I try tape and it actually was able to stay in place better. I sent it to a place to repair... $175!!! They said that canon sold there's for 105... (I had another part broken on it also)
I hear you man. I was able to buy a genuine mint condition collar for $50 on eBay
. But I must say I was pretty miserable up until that point. I had to wait about 2 weeks to find one.

EOS Bodies / Re: How much will the 5d3 cost at the end of 2012?
« on: July 04, 2012, 03:13:11 PM »
This is how I look at it. If I save $500 and have no warranty, I can use that $500 towards repair if needed. But the chance of a new camera needing repair within 1 year of use is very rare, so I rather take that risk and save the money. And its ever more rare to have a repair within a year costing more than $500.
The cameras they sell are probably imported, but they are made in the same Canon factory, the same way as the USA models. And ofcourse, they offer a 30 day money back guarantee.

How about how much will the 5D3 be from Authorized Canon Retailers at the end of the year?


Well lets see, you can buy it now from an authorized dealer for $3218. So end of the year, around $3000 I'd guess.

Hi I am new to this forum I want to ask you let say if I buy 24-70 II lens and I am using Canon T4i what will be the Pros & Cons ? Please advice

Pros:
Excellent sharpness (according to MTF charts)
Constant aperture @ f/2.8
Future proof if you upgrade to full frame
Good tele range (70mmX1.6=112mm)
Pro Build quality

Cons:
Expensive
Heavy
May not be wide enough for crop sensor camera (24mmX1.6=38.4mm widest)
No STM motor (slower and noisier focus in auto focus video function compared to STM lenses)
82mm filter (If you plan on using filters, it'll cost you more)
No IS

I've used this since December and really like it, seems strong, is adjustable mounts in tripod mount but you can screw a tripod onto it, also has a back up fabric thing that ties onto another spot for add saf

+1 for the carry speed. I have the double strap and just love it. But buy from http://www.carryspeed.com/ website directly because they have the newer design with c3 plate.

Lenses / Re: Best (Recommended) ways to clean your lenses?

I just throw mine in the dishwasher.

LMAO  ;D. Btw, just checked your site, you got some amazing work.

This is a rumor...you might not see a Nikon like that either.

I bet you that the rumor is pretty close to being true, and it'll ship before the 1D X is shipped in mass quantities to the general public.

And when will they ship the D800 in mass quantities? lol

Seems like eBay has finally blocked the seller from selling anything else for now. I think he has sold ~$50K of stuff in 3 days. In any case, its a little too early to file claim with eBay. When I try to file, it says to wait till June 08. My purchase below:

I found this seller on eBay selling new 5D II kit with 24-105mm lens + other accessories for $2399.99.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/200765254988?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

I actually bought the item from him 3 days ago, but the seller states the shipping time is 15 business days. I figured the worst that could happen is I don't get my item and file with eBay and get my money back. But not sure how long the eBay process will take, so I may not have my money for a while if something goes wrong.

I have been following the seller's activities for a few days and so far he has sold about 15 of these (according to his 'feedback left for others' tab. I also noticed he sells either 3 at a time or 5 at a time, and lists them again once its sold out. He has no prior history of selling expensive equipments. So thats where my suspicion comes from. He is registered in Australia, but item seems in to be California...hmmm. Anyway, what do you guys think, is it legit??

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon fixed 5DIII light leak with tape
« on: May 02, 2012, 08:00:28 PM »
If the tape was part of the original design to combat the light leak issue (before it became an issue), I doubt anyone would've complained.
