Lenses / Any rumor of a Zeiss Milvus 180/200mm (f2.8)?
« Last post by laza99 on Today at 04:43:22 PM »
The Zeiss 100MP much smaller than a 1:1 macro would be, still it costs much.

Here is a pic of future expansion of the line:

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?

In effect, the real price of a 1DX just dropped by about 10% in England and Europe as the Pound and Euro drop in value. It's not any cheaper to consumers...

Well, no cheaper for 'local' consumers.  But for those in nearby countries, who's currencies are getting relatively stronger, products are getting cheaper.  Colleagues of mine in Switzerland already routinely cross the border to shop in Germany and France...in fact, they complain about traffic and crowds on weekends – I expect that will get worse.  When the Canadian dollar is much weaker than the US dollar, it's cheaper to buy Canon gear from Canadian sellers (and CPW's street price deals ship from north of the border).

When a member is manifestly trolling or posts a ridiculous assertion and backs it up with incorrect information, and has a long history of doing so, I'll respond with ridicule and scorn, and do so unapologetically.

'Worse' is refusing to acknowledge one's mistakes. 
'Worse' is failing to learn from one's mistakes.

Responding with ridicule and scorn has been ineffective.  You may wish to try some other approach.

Your judgement regarding effectiveness (or lack thereof) is predicated on an assumption regarding my intent. You may with to consider if that assumption is warranted.
True 'nuff.

I though GB was a strong nation that could influence. If they could not influence the EU to change their ways what say do they have in the wider world.

Maybe they got rid of the shackles, but at what cost to the country. They took the easy way out and IMO didn't really think it through.

Cameras are luxury items, fluctuations don't hurt the general public, they don't depend on it like oil. Canon will lose profit but they should have already planned for currency changes.

I remember Richard Branson being quite brutal about companies moaning about currency variations.  His point was that businesses should work to be neutral to currancy movements by endeavoring to buy and sell roughly equal amounts of goods and services in each currancy.  No one is capable of achieving exact parity, but his point was that there are plenty of companies that rely on a particular currency disparity to survive and if that vanishes then they are doomed.

So canon is now officially doomed.  I think that's the first time we've heard that around here... ;P

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 6D Mark II & New DSLR Body in 2017
« Last post by tcmatthews on Today at 03:14:45 PM »
I still hope the 6DII is announced before Fall 2017.  But if the release of the given how long it is taking for the 5D IV I would not be surprised if it is delayed until then.  As for specs I think it will be around 22-24MP with dual Pixel autofocus and it better have an articulating screen and the same body style. 

As for the other camera I hope it is a long awaited return of a Full Frame Rebel camera likely with a tweaked version of the 6D sensor.  I still think Rebel F or what ever it will be called would be a good deal.

here's one.
a segment of a luna moth wing I picked up on our driveway, probably left over from a predator meal.
100 mm f/2.8 II, with Kenko 36 + 20 + 12 tubes on 5DIII.
