Is it worth the upgrade, not really.

I know why. Because it can't shoot 120 film which you love :)

Big horn lamb near Banff AB; the 'halo' around it's legs is caused by the sun shining through the fine hairs on its body, not by over sharpening...

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS Still in Testing [CR2]

Yes, because that's what everyone is screaming at Canon for: another UWA L zoom.   ::)


Maybe even a 70 - 200 f/2.8 IS III which is even better or just lighter/shorter a tiny bit. Yes i know 200 f/2.8 means a lot lens, but maybe it is a little bit easier now. Or it is worse but a lot lighter, but with a very good correctible profile. I don't need 12 extra lenses to get the chromatic abberation to zero, if the color is absolutely predictable and just one click in software.

Pygmy elephants in Northern Borneo. I wouldn't have liked to use shorter than 400mm for this shot.


Very nice capture! You gotta love elephants.  8)

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Patent: New Rear Screen Concept for DSLRs

... I think a lot of us have always assumed eventually the entire back of a camera would be an LCD/OLED..

I would suggest that particular route is a blind alley.

unless of course you have programmable contours otherwise you can't use it without looking at it.  There's no tactile feedback.  Which is the exact complaint I have with a few modern car systems..  on my ancient MB everything is tactile, which means I can do everything by touch without taking my eyes off the road.  In that sense cameras should be the same.

Although my gut feeling is the same as yours, in practice, I find myself using the touch interface on my 5D IV and SL2 almost exclusively, so in practice, my gut feeling is not panning out.  I think that Canon has really done a fantastic job with the human interface on the touch screen, its very intuitive.  So, young people who are used to touch on their smart phones are going to feel at home with Canon's touch in the future.  There are so many things I like about the touch screen that they override the few things I don't like.  I hated trying to push the zoom pution multiple times, now its just a pinch gesture to magnify the screen and move to the area I want to see, really fast and easy.

I think we are talking about apples and oranges.

A touch screen is very useful for reviewing images and for navigating through menus. Much more intuitive and easier than punching buttons.

Buttons, click wheels and joysticks are much more useful when one is shooting through an optical viewfinder. The tactile feedback is important when one can't take their eyes off the subject.

I don't remember that I asked, but it's cool anyway. What I do ask is to make 30 min service for the plutonium and uranium members :)

Jokes aside they also mentioned "CPS Gold members’ benefits will now be enhanced with two-day service turnaround". That's nice.

That's actually a sad news - we won't see the new 24-70 IS in 2018 for sure :'(
