Re: Vote for Your Favourite Canon Gear of 2016

I'm guessing I'm early, way too early, on this post. Followed the link and that is not the voting experience I expected.
Or perhaps you just want us to post regular posts with our choices?

If so, my choice would be "Jack D's new default":
Camera - EOS 1D X Mark II
Lens - EF 400/4 DO IS II USM

Worked for me, and I also chose the 1DXII.
But sorry to disapoint you, the 400 DO II is from the year before ;) (or maybe even 2014?)
I voted for the new 16-35 :)

I still can't see anything special. I just get redirected to a new tab on the forum with this content. *shrugs*

I'm not disappointed. And the 400/4 DO II could have been released in the 1950s and I would still select it. To me, as a birder and wildlife shooter, this version has given us solid performance coupled with bloody nice IQ in an (almost) affordable package that we can haul around for the entire day. It will not only forgive us for slapping a 1.4x extender behind it, it will still shine in the IQ department. That is a quality worth paying for - and some day I will.

Because it's the 50/1.4 L IS coming in 2017. :)

I hope I fixed that for ya! ;D

I think the category winners in this pole are going to be very clear cut!

Re: Vote for Your Favourite Canon Gear of 2016

I tend to look foward on gear that I would want to buy and that is no gear that is too expensive since it would be a waste for me ;). I look foward on the 6D mk II
 
Re: Vote for Your Favourite Canon Gear of 2016

most anticipated...

50f1.4 USM II, although there's more chance of a 10-3000mm f1.0 for full frame...

best of 2016..

lens:

EF 70-300 f4-5.6 USM: because it's the only one released this year without getting a mauling online.

Camera:

The 1DXII was a real full blown next generation camera, so get's the vote.

Re: Vote for Your Favourite Canon Gear of 2016

The 50mm f1.4L IS ii was a limited production run. Only 500 were distributed worldwide and other than it being sharp to edges with great bokeh, IS autofocus and unobtainable contrast with no CA I can't say more under the NDA.

;D

And they say waterboarding is torture

Re: Vote for Your Favourite Canon Gear of 2016

Too bad there is no "none of the above", or "nothing really excited me" option. That's why I did not vote for anything.
