Canon General / Re: What is your Least Used Piece of Gear?

7D body, MP-E 65mm Macro lens, 430 flash.
Battle of Britain Flight Lancaster. Newcastle Airport, for last year's Sunderland Airshow.

Not really one for b&w conversions, but I thought this was appropriate.

(bigger here).

Canon 7D, Siggy 70-200mm f/2.8 OS handheld.
Not a 6D but have some experience with Canon and moisture...

My 5DmIII was in Maui last year and reacted very poorly to the wet conditions.  Moisture built up quite a bit in the viewfinder and the LCD on top.  Took EVERYTHING off, out and apart and let the car AC blow directly onto and into it for 30-45 mins while driving and the moisture seemed to go away.

As soon as it was buttoned back up, the back button and the top wheel ceased to function.  Other buttons seemed to reprogram themselves and in general, the camera was a mess.  CPS took it and diagnosed a problem in a control board and fixed it but the days of allowing it to get into that environment are done!

I'm not going to read much into this, though interesting that they are also talking about the 7D Mk III already!

There's a couple of film bodies (EOS5 & EOS30) and a Tamron 28-200 that I haven't used in years. Of the kit that does get some use, it would be the 550EX Speedlight.

I completely agree with jrista, and the rest of you that are sceptic. That buffer depth shows that it just has to be old data dressed up to draw traffic - mine takes at least 23 frames of RAW with the latest FW. BTW the site didn't respond when I tried to check it. (A 500 error - server side failure.)
Software & Accessories / Re: Camera bag for camping

I have been using a Gossamer Gear Mariposa backpack which is an older version of the newer that has a removable hip belt.  When bringing photography equipment, I replace the hip belt with a Think tank belt and attach my Think Tank holsters, lens bags and accessory bags as needed to the exposed side portions of the belt.  This gives me an ultralight backpack with the ability to add photo gear as needed and the camera and lenses are readily accessible in the side holsters.

Thanks much for the info, I was planning to get an Osprey Volt due to the low weight and ergonomics but the option of using a Think Tank belt makes this one a worthy option. Question: which TT belt do you use, the Steroid or just the Pro is enough for the well being of your hips?
Lenses / Re: 50mm Coma Sigma Art vs Regular Sigma F1.4

@extremeinstability: thanks for this and generally for all your coma tests. They are very useful.

Still looking for a very wide, very bright lens with not much coma.

I know that you  would suggest the Samyang 14 2.8 but I had found a used (but excellent) Canon 14mm 2.8 II for about 1000 Euros less than the street price. After getting rid of old gear I didn't want I paid about half of the used selling price. So I took it and left happy  :)

True there is a little coma at the corners but nothing serious like my now sold 16-35mm 2.8 (version 1).
My experience: 100 L macro, very light rain, brushing against wet foliage.  The shots started looking funky - too dark, blurred.  I stuck it in a Ziploc with rice and the next day it was fine.
