Yeah. What lunatic continues to buy gear they hate?

you have not read, what he wrote. He is using multiple Canon bodies for stills and video. Out in the wild.
The last thing I'd want out there is a body from another manufaturer, with different user interface, different sensor characteristics, different batteries, etc. ... how about you?

If my livelihood depended on it, I would.

I might still do that in part (even though I do this for a hobby). I did not like the WA lenses of Canon so I might just pick up a used D800 (sell quite cheap these days) and the 14-24.
There is some truth in the WA part (I am thinking mainly FF corner IQ and coma)

But for landscapes and architecture my TS-E 17mm and for landscapes and astrophotography my Zeiss 21mm 2.8 cover these limitations.

For those who expect a new 200 f2 ii, what new features do you think will be implemented in it? Does anyone know how much more expensive the new 300 2.8 ii was as compared to the 300 f2.8 i when the former was released?

Currently  I have the 1DX, the 5D3 and 2 x 5D2, 4 x T3.

Four T3 bodies? Was this model chosen just because of price or is there something specific about the camera that makes it more appealing?
After owning one for more than a year now, and after buying a 5D2 earlier this year, I'm still quite satisfied with the performance of the T3. One example is that If I'm doing HDR I prefer the T3 because it gives a cleaner image with long exposures. I'm guessing those cameras spend a lot of time looking at the sky?



I was about to get the 24-105 f4L for Christmas, but everything’s on hold as I would hate to miss out on something “new”.
My wish list of “new” models is as follows

EF 17-135mm f4 L USM IS (preferred option as this would suit almost all my needs and would be a permanent fixture on my camera)
EF 24-150mm f/4 L USM IS (dreaming now! :P)

Lets push the boundaries further, what would be your ULTIMATE dream lens??

I'm waiting for the 50-500/f1.4L IS USM

Are you sure you want a lens with a 357mm front element?

Now there are other lenses, but these are the most crucial IMO: (I have / or have had, all these lenses)

Canon EF 14 2.8 L II (2007) has bad IQ, lot's of CA/coma in the corners, beaten well by the Zoom lens 14-24 2.8 Nikon, as well as the Samyang 14mm.
Canon EF 16-35 2.8 L II (2007) has bad IQ,, lot's of CA/coma and soft in the corners. It has it's strengths in weight and portability but need an IQ upgrade.
Canon EF 24 1.4 L II (2008) has REALLY BAD IQ!! CA and so much coma in the corners that it basically useless in low lit sutations wide open. Beaten well by Samyang 24 1.4! Wake up Canon!!
Canon EF 35 1.4 L II (1998) has bad IQ, lot's of CA/coma/soft in the corners. An old lens well beaten by Samyang 35 1.4 and Sigma 35 1.4, needs an upgrade, but IMO 24 1.4 is more important to prioritize!
Canon EF 50 1.8 II, (1990), the oldest 50mm is the best 50mm Canon has. Corner sharpness is bad, but still beets all other 50mm from Canon, still this lens suffers from CA and is beaten well by the Nikon 50 1.8 and Sigma 50 1.4.
Canon EF 50 1.4 (1993) is suffering from severe CA wide open, well beaten by the Nikon 50 1.8 / Sigma 50 1.4.

Canon need to pull their finger out of wherever they are currently (the Cinema division) and respect and prioritize the DSLR customers which have put Canon where they are.


Have you even tried these lenses or are you chart watching? Your comments are extream and very irritating to those of us who actually use these items in a professional guise....which the L lenses were created. They weren't designed for web trolls who claim knowledge, but their experiance seems to come from looking at web reviews. I use a 35mm f1.4 L, 24mm f1.4 II L and 16-35IIL day in day out professionally and have for many years. If you think those lenses are junk because of a few minor aberations...then you really need to get a grip. No lens is perfect, end of subject. All of the lenses above, I use wide open and I have produced great photos which sell and sell. A fast prime shot a f1.2 or f1.4 is a remarkable thing and a lens which is delivered to the customer with pro build, AF and great optics for around £1200 is quite remarkable. These lenses are astonishing and can produce amazing photographs in the right hands. If you pass over these gems because of some crazy elitest attitude...it really is your loss....but please don't come on here and spout your views as verbatim...as you will be challenged!
Consider this, most of the best photographs ever taken were taken on quite lowly kit...Steve McCurry, Cartier Bresson...to name a few. Perhapse we should be more critical of our photographs than our lenses? I suspaect that 99% of modern lenses and cameras out perform their users.

Well said!

Just watched the imax 3d space movie that included some pretty good info on the Hubble space telescope...awesome tech. 

I'm hoping a smaller version of the Hubble is coming from canon in 2014...ef mount "L" of course....red ring optional.

The new 'white' paint color.  ;)

I'm afraid I tend to agree, here, New White Paint same as the Series II Lenses, 20% less weight ?? (Not sure how much, but some weight saving).

I say "afraid" to agree only because I would love to see the 200f/2 get the series II Lens treatment, but it's my view that the current 200f/2 is so good I just don't see why Canon would do anything to it.

Plus the new Lens should it get the series II treatment, will get the Series II price increase, I had the 300f/2.8 series I and the 400 series I before upgrading both Lenses (have sold the 400 since though), in general the price increase for the series II over the series I has been in the order +/- 30% increase, that would likely see a series II 200f/2 move to above 8K, not sure that would be a smart move for Canon.

Why mess with perfection ??
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing

None of the EF-S, all the specialty and non-L primes, probably a couple of the zooms depending on price and performance, plus the 135, 300 and 400.
35+ years of Canon gear...good grief! Still have 2 FTb cameras in working order, too!

I like your list. I could buy:
EF-S 16-55mm F2.8 (my favorite)
EF 200mm F4 IS Macro (could even be F5.6 because for macro I'd only use narrow openings anyway)
EF 90mm F2 IS (great for portrait)
EF 50mm F1.8 IS (if quality and price are fair)

Hopefully Canon listen to your ideas.

Agreed. Aren't most of the current TS lenses f/3.5 max aperture?
