Camera Body Gallery / Re: Anything shot with a 1DX II
« Last post by R1-7D on Today at 12:27:37 AM »
Thanks Jack and Click. I'm having a good time with it.  Went back and got a few more of the heron again today. Haven't had time to go through the photos though.

Here's some of my pups in the backyard though. :)

Is it confirmed that there won't be IS? Or has IS simply gone unmentioned so far?

There's no CR3 on IS to my knowledge. 

People tend to lump the 16-35 f/2.8 and 24-70 f/2.8 lenses into the same 'workhorse handheld zoom' bucket, and it appears that in that bucket, Canon would tend to go [f/2.8 non-IS] or [f/4 IS] for such lenses.  My money is on non-IS for that reason, but Canon may shake things up and offer it for the video crowd.

So who is the bookie that takes all these bets you make?

If there was a bookie for this, I'd fear for my financial future.   ;)

It's also being called the 16-35 f/2.8L III according to CR, not the 16-35 f/2.8L IS.

More circumstantial evidence to the 'non IS' camp, I guess.

EOS Bodies / Re: Help! 1DX II Cfast issues!
« Last post by R1-7D on Today at 12:22:59 AM »
I got my 1DX Mark II last Monday with the included CFast card and reader and haven't had this issue as of yet. I read on another forum that you need to format the card on a Windows OS, so I did using Sandisk's formatting app. Then I put the card in the camera and formatted again.

I've not had any trouble. I primarily use a Mac with Adobe Lightroom CC.

Nice job Graham.  I flicked through a few on Flickr - looks like you were having a bit of fun playing with shutter speed :)

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 6D Mark II & New DSLR Body in 2017

I'm thinking the new DSLR body could be alluding to the FF mirrorless? that would make more sense than a new version/addition to the current lineup of dslrs.  The FF ML wouldn't necessarily be new in terms of raw specs, but a different system that is not in the current lineup.  I know the heading says DSLR..

Industry News / Re: Small Camera Shops Need Help

I like to buy my equipment at two local camera stores.  I'm willing to pay a little extra to have access to local service and support.  However, the in-store experience isn't great.  I'm not a professional photographer so I don't get much attention - a couple minutes at most.  When the merchant figures out that I'm buying at the lower end of the market, he starts looking for somebody else to help. 

So, I'm not particularly sanguine about the potential loss of my local bricks and mortar stores.  I wish them well, but they are pretty indifferent to me.

Lenses / Re: Any rumor of a Zeiss Milvus 180/200mm (f2.8)?
« Last post by Perio on June 25, 2016, 10:49:39 PM »
The Zeiss 100MP much smaller than a 1:1 macro would be, still it costs much.

135 and 200 seems reasonable, but I dont want to wait till the 2050's. Even a new Canon 180 II with IS or 200 f2.8 would largely satisfly my needs, but Im afraid of buying the Sigma 180 OS since Ive used Zeiss lenses...

Do you think we get the Zeiss 200mm/2.8 soon? Any rumors around?

I haven't heard anything so far. I'd assume that it'd be very challenging to manual focus 200mm lens...
