    We’ve received the pricing for the new RF lenses

    These new lenses are likely extraordinary, but to be honest buying this glass and reselling 8 L lenses won't bring me more money. I'm glad Canon has a good working adapter for EF lenses. In a declining market, the new system will be a hard sell with glass this expensive.

    Selling gear

    There's a freeware that will give you shutter count I use that works VERY well with my 5DIII https://sourceforge.net/projects/canon-eos-digital-info/

    Patent: Tiny Canon 100-400mm lens and camera

    It's the market it will enter what worries me!

    What about that EF 200-600mm f/4.5-5.6 IS from Canon?

    I'm really starting to wonder if Canon has abandoned development of any L lens in an EF mount now.

    Patent: Canon camera with in-body stabilization and in-lens stabilization working together.

    The most important question now is "WHEN"? Once I see a reliable eye-autofocus, dual card slots and dependable IBIS with an improved sensor, I'll probably buy but who can say whether I will ever see that time before I close my eyes for the last time.

    The Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L USM: The developers answer 10 questions

    The new glass looks amazing but way too expensive for now. Love to get into this system but RF glass is a one way street. EF glass allows me to go both ways.

    The first supertelephoto for the RF mount to be an RF 500mm f/4L IS [CR1]

    With all this emphasis on RF glass, I'm really interested to see how well the R and RP and selling. This new glass is uber expensive and those of us with EF lenses , it's a hard sell to justify buying one way glass. I'll be waiting a while longer before I consider a new body. A couple of...

    Ricoh predicts DSLRs will bounce back

    Sales are going to be the driving force and where R&D will be positioned. Pentax is in a state a denial. If people switch entirely to mirrorless, I can't seem them transitioning back normally. The statement reminds me of a Kodak moment and we know where they went. I agree both have their...

    First time lapse vidieo using EOS R (love it too!!)

    Seriously great work with mega talent behind the lens.

    A couple of EOS R cameras that can be considered “pro” are in the pipeline [CR1]

    Sadly after 10 years with Canon I'm now exploring other options. I'm stalling because of a major investment with EF glass. If I do make a switch, I will miss Canon ergonomics. Their bodies fit my hand perfectly.

    Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L USM coming May 9, 2019

    I'd be very curious to know how many are selling their DSLR's and EF mount lenses for this new very expensive gear.

    Canon Inc. releases Q1 2019 financial results

    I'm smelling even sooner abandonment of Canon's DSLR line from this recent financial report/projection. They continue to suggest the supporting of the EF mount but that doesn't smell any better. I have a good number of Canon EF & DSLR's in my possession. This inevitably will decide on a new...

    Patent: Canon RF 28mm f/1.8 & RF 50mm f/1.8

    That's good to know. The RF glass I find very expensive and quite honestly, I find little incentive to even look at it with a large collection of EF L glass.

    Patent: Lots of small, light and fast EF prime lenses

    It's still a wait and see game on EF mounts & DSLR's. There hasn't been anything released to speak of since the 2 ML's have been released along with RF glass. There's talk about 1Dx Mark III but otherwise, all has been VERY quiet.

    Umbrella frustration

    A C-Stand will benefit you but an umbrella that large used outdoors will act like a full fledged parachute and be tempted to collapse or be destroyed by a fall. You might look into a brolly instead but honestly, anything over 35" outdoors even with a C-Stand will at the very least require an...
