  • This is unacceptable.

    In equivalent value, we're going to be forced to pay 55% more, a full $1,000, above the US price at launch, much more than any market-specifics might dictate.

  • Replied in Unbingo...? :(
    A Portuguese site just posted the price for this lens in my market - 2439 EUR. - ouch! In the past, I've seen them quoting an initial price higher than the actual launching one but, if that is the ...
  • Replied in Pretzeling
    ...Ok, let's try to reset this from my perspective, with the full assurance that I am not "out to get you" only because of your name ;-) I joined this thread because you posted a reply ...
  • Replied in No you don't.
    I am sorry Rick, as far as landscape photography goes, I am more keen to listen and see what the likes of David Noton say and do than what you find appropriate. Do you know why he and many other ...
  • What...!? Heck, no...only if dragged by my head and feet. :) :) :) PK
  • Replied in Double bingo !
    More, you mean...? You certainly can't be paying more than we do, here in Europe with our turbo-taxes, can you? PK
  • I was having a bit of trouble wrapping my head around that "sharpness can be good at $2,300 but it will fail at $1,700" argument it sounded as if you were putting forward. I now see it was all ...
  • Replied in Double bingo !
    Yes, it seems it will be. :) ...and, if the traditional relation between the USD and EUR price is kept, it seems I nailed the price too... The servers at my target vendor must be overheating just ...
  • It was about time. It was just silly, what was going on. It was a power play with Canon USA trying to "punish" Canon Inc. for making them loose money on the original "M". Pouting has no place in ...
  • You're missing by calling that "the only advantage". It's actually the advantage. You'll catch it if and when you start using one. PK
  • Replied in 'BR'
    I was afraid it was just a tech acronym to justify jacking up the price, as in : "Well, yes, it costs $2,300 but, you know, it does feature BR". Fortunately, it wasn't the case and it came out at ...
  • This is not my perception or my experience. I have about the same number of people asking me for advice on which entry level DSLR to buy as I had 5 years ago. What I perceive as happening is that ...
  • Yes, although the LP-E17 is also used on the 750D and the 760D, it seems that third-party offers are late to the game....Maybe the cameras that use this particular battery are perceived as a small ...
  • I must say, I saw this in Canon Rumors but being that the original link to the patent was in PhotographyBay, I thought it would be more reasonable linking directly to the source. In the process, I ...
  • Created discussions Tilt&Shift "à la carte"?
    How cool would this be?: http://www.photographybay.com/2015/08/24/canons-coming-electronic-tilt-shift-adapter-that-works-with-every-ef-lens/ PK
  • You're not helping the community by linking to a flawed testing. Why is it flawed? Because these were not made with the most appropriate adapter for this combo, which would be the Metabones IV. If ...
  • I think that, for their top lines, the probability is low. Sony is a 8+ trillion Yen multi-pronged electronics corporation. Canon is a 8+ trillion Yen one, but just centered on imaging, office ...
  • Replied in Unfortunately,
    Well, edges as sharp as the center on a 35mm f/1.4 wide open is something that does not exist, not even at the $4,500 price point of the Leica Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASP. On the other end, excellent ...
  • You're barking at the wrong tree here. GB was the "father" of that syllogistic sequence. I just condensed it for (...very near, I suspect...) future reference. My point is, precisely, that Canon ...
