    Canon Deals at Adorama, EOS 6D, EOS 7D, 70-300L & 50 f/1.8 II

    Re: Canon Deals at Adorama, EOS 6D, EOS 7D and 50 f/1.8 II Canonrumors seems to have become a pricewatch site lately. Would love to see less noise about existing cameras and more about what's comming up !

    buying the 5DII and need two amazing primes to cover my range??

    x2 on the 135/2L, great performer. As for zooms (if money isn't an issue...), the 16-35/2.8L and a 70-200/2.8L would cover you for most situations (along w/ your 50.) Also, a 24-70/2.8L is a good indoor range. Consider renting some lenses online (eg. here) before you buy.

    7D Firmware 1.2.5 Posted Again

    I have a 50/1.4 that needs similar amounts on my 5DII (and a bit less on my 7D.) I wouldn't worry about the numbers unless you have some L lenses that dial in at similar values. Be carefull w/ the zoom BTW. You need to measure it at different zoom settings. If the values differ, choose a setting...

    What's the longest you've ever waited for the perfect photo?

    About a year. It was in a spot I would drive by to work as well -- an armchair dumped in a patch of small sequoia trees. When I finally did get a shot I wasn't happy w/ it and went back the next day; the conditions were just the same ! (After a year of waiting, two days in a row) -- just to find...

    *UPDATE* Firmware 1.2.5 for EOS 7D

    Canon JP still seems to be struggling w/ the aftermath of the quake, they list 1.0.8 as the latest for the 60D. Canon US hosts 1.0.9 for that camera (haven't checked Canon EU.) Another interesting bit is that Canon US doesn't list DPP 3.10.1 for the 7D but for any other camera w/ raw support...

    UV filter for 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II?

    I use B+W 010M (UV haze MRC) on most of my lenses. Beware of uncoated filters, they flare easily. An alternative would be 007M (Clear MRC).
