Really looking forward to selling my Sigma 35 and picking this up as soon as possible.
I don't approve or disapprove of tagging rail cars. If the rail companies actually saw it as damage, they would put the necessary resources into stopping it. They obviously care very little.
For me, I get to shoot it almost every day as a train comes right past my home here. I've got a gallery with 1600 rail pictures, almost all graffiti.
The guys running the local train got so curious eventually they stopped the train one day and asked me why I was taking the pictures all the time. When I told them it was for the graffiti they said, "Oh, well we'll have to get you some better cars."
As a working pro that makes a living off my tools (currently 1DX's), there are a couple of features that I'd spend a lot of money for. ..
#2: Digital crop that would allow cropping into the sensor on the fly, similar or better than the Nikon D3/D4 can do.
Interesting. May I ask why? It's a nice to have, maybe, but if that (software) functionality adds "a lot of money" to the cost of a body, I'd prefer to put that money into memory and crop in post.
For most of my work there is no time for post processing. My images go straight from the camera to viewing stations where my customers can view and purchase the images. Selected images also go straight to slideshows running on multiple 50" screens. If a parent sees a good shot on the 50" screens, chances are they are going to head to the viewing stations to look and hopefully make a purchase. A my larger venues my selected shots are projected on 20'x30' screens. Again no time for post processing.
The crop on the fly ability allows me to put a more tightly cropped image in front of the customer, whether it be on my viewing stations, 50" monitors or 20'x30' screen. For me this increases sales.
I'm surprised to see so many suggesting a battery grip. I've always thought they looked too bulky, plus most of my work is in landscape mode, but I'll have to try one sometime!
I'll check out the other products that have been suggested.
