This post is merely to push the insanity to page 10.

Wait for it . . .

It's only going to be page 4 for me... is that a setting or something?  Maybe your pages are in metric?  LOL!   :D

Lenses / Re: The Great 200mm Shootout

"The third-party lenses and Canon Non IS are cheaper, and probably good enough for many uses. But don’t kid yourself; they aren’t as good."

But that is the key.  They may be good enough.  There is always a balance between cost and quality. Few photographers are in the position to afford the "best" how ever that is defined.

True, but it's more often that I read/hear that the offbrand is just as good as the first party brand but x% cheaper.  People tend to think more highly of what they have relative to the other options.  It is one of the reasons why I like TDP and Lensrentals.  Lensrentals has the volume to get representative data, and TDP has evaluated so many lenses that I appreciate his recommendations and comparisons that much more.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Import 1Dx worth the risk?
« Last post by mackguyver on Today at 01:56:57 PM »
I bought a Canadian import and after a little over a year, all is well.  It came with a Canadian (NOT North American like all other bodies) warranty card.  I sent it in for repair last week, literally on day 365 of the warranty and though the repair was not covered (corrosion :(), all of the paperwork referred to the repair as "In-Warranty".

I know nothing about the bags you asked about, but recommend the RRS bags. It opens at the top quiver-style and all the way. Padded with shoulder strap.

...Based on the impressive amount of screen space used by all of the OP's lengthy posts in response to everyone in a thread he started, I guess he wants the attention.  That and some kind of validation from this forum to the same points he made in the beginning...

...From a psychological standpoint, it's rather interesting...

Yes, I have to admit I have a morbid attraction to these kinds of train-wreck threads., although at some point they tend to veer off into territory that usually has me feeling pity for the wives and families of the posters (not being sexist, but it is usually male posters who go seriously off the rails.)

Remember the guy who wrote in mad as hell at his wife, because she bought him a 5DIII, when he wanted an older model 1D?

Or there was the guy who took his new 6D out in a speedboat in the ocean in the rain. People kept telling him to put it away and he kept saying, "don't worry, it's weatherproof"...except of course, it wasn't and he was shocked...shocked...when it quit working.

As I recall, these guys didn't get the validation and sympathy they were looking for either. Magnardo's complaint is a little easier to understand, but it seems that what really irritated him is that that people disagreed with him.

My observation is: if you want sympathy, call your mom. If you write to an internet forum, expect people to disagree with you.

Look at Think Tank Retrospective.

+1 on the Retrospective line.

They look just like a regular over the shoulder bag but hold gear securely. Problem is they'll never hold all the gear the OP mentioned.

I have the largest Think Tank Urban Disguise bag.  I can't remember what numerical size it's called.  It should be big enough for what you need.  I like it but have been meaning to get a Think Tank glass taxi or something similar.

Overall though, I love Think Tank.  The quality is fantastic.

Hey Keith, that looked like a fun experiment! The "use a MF lens with TS adapter" would seem more applicable, and might be interesting for those who have MF lenses gathering dust in their storage, but if you don't have MF lenses or need really wide TS, why bother with adapters when Canon has made good equipment already?

Shooting at the James river again, yesterday.

Not too many bald eagles but lots of ospreys feeding on the river.
