Paul JM: What disturbs me is the fact that this lens, and its predecessor which I own and love, are not on the list of recommended lenses for the 5dsrhttp://www.slrlounge.com/canon-announces-new-list-of-recommended-lenses-for-new-5ds/but the non-L f2 35mm is ! What is going on Canon ? Do they really feel that the non L has better optical characteristics then the 1.4 ? Do they really NOT recommend this new L series lens on their new high quality 50MP sensor ? Do I sell my 35mmL and 'upgrade' to the f2 lens ?
Photomedium, that is not helpful advice. We all to some degree rely on advice from others about camera gear, and there is no shame in that. If you dont believe in listening to advice from others, then you are really wasting your time participating in these forums at all. But specifically in relation to your advice, things are not so simple. Just buying the camera, then trying it out with a pile of lenses, is expensive and time consuming. To be frank, if the resolution of Canon sensors now out resolves my current lens collection, then I would probably not buy the 5dsr at all, but given the expense of changing both body and lenses, may look at other options, e.g. the Pentax 645. It is not a matter of supervision by Canon at all, but exploring other options.
Yes, but they didn't list the 35 1.4 series i either. Surely they rate that lens higher than the 35 f2Nor the 15mm L prime. Nor the 300 f4 L prime. Difficult to reconcile L series prime lenses not being on the list

jonathanj: The content is fine, but the presentation is awful. Text too large, way too much scrolling, and no pre-loading of images meant I gave up halfway through.
Jonathan, readers are looking for insightful comments about camera gear etc. Try to stick to that if you can, otherwise the site just drowns in kb's of complaint over nothing, that interests no oneNow. the content. There were some things that actually mattered. The initial claim that 4k contains twice as many pixels as HD (it has now been corrected to read 4 times).
you cant be serious. One keyboard short cut to drop the size of the text and the problem is resolved. By all means criticise the content, but if you are too lazy to change the text size.....
Studor13: Wonder when they will fix the bug that stops you from printing anything bigger than A4 on an Epson 3880.
Yes, I know I can get around it by printing via Photoshop but I really shouldn't have to.
I print on Mac directly via USB. No problems at all with larger paper sizes
Really ? I dont seem to have any problems printing either A3 or A2 on the 3880 directly out of lightroom. When do you feel this 'bug' appeared ?
Jinu Justin Dcosta: which is the best camera for wedding photography , presently owns 5D mark 2. Pls suggest......
My firs question would be to ask what aspect of the 5D mk2 is currently rate limiting for you ? I own and still use that camera, not as much as I once did, but I have held off buying the 5Dsr as I dont currently need the 50 MP sensor, and find that the frame rate and focusing of the mk 2 are fine
how big are the uncompressed files ? Any users prepared to share the size of their files please ?
bootsofspanishleather: re have a Fuji X Pro 1 camera which I love. What might I expect from the X Pro 2i f it ever is released. Question 2, What advantage does the X Pro2 have over it's lighter, smaller cousin, the XE 2 if any
Kind of difficult to answerI also own Fuji (XE1) and Sony (A7R)but you are asking about a camera that does not exist yet (X Pro 2) and comparing it to a camera that is due for updating itself, if the camera line has not been axed (XE2), and asking it on a Sony forum ! Not sure anyone can answer this currently
neil holmes: 15-35 2.8-4 lens.
I doubt many others would want it but that would do me.
Neil it is nonsense because you are asking for Fuji's fixed prime option to be replaced with an option that already exists in other models. You could walk into a store tomorrow and buy an XE with kit prime and have almost exactly what you are asking for. If you want a smaller non interchangeable then Fuji already have that option too.
if you dont want a fixed prime, then buy one of the other x series bodies. Honestly nonsense post.

Mike FL: This T1 is "Weather Resistant" with no IBIS, but FUJI's WR OIS zoom lenses is no wider than 27mm.
By looking FUJI's lens road map, FUJI has No plan to release a OIS WA lens wider than 27mm.
So far, no good.
Mike if you have a look at the offerings of Canon and Nikon in the UW lenses, virtually none have OIS. I love OIS, but in long lenses when hand holding in low light is a problemGenerally if you are shooting wide, if the shutter speed is getting so slow that you need OIS, you are better off using a tripod. At these shutter speeds, if shooting people you are going to get movement artefact, and if shooting architecture etc much better on a tripod. Have a look at the premium SLR wide lenses
Mike why on earth would you want IS with an ultra wide lens? Makes no sense
Mark Banas: Waiting for someone to do the math on the prize value vs. # of prior paid entries. ;)
That said, it's great to have any excuse to shoot more panos, and I see Peter Lik was one of the past judges, while Aaron Spence is one of the current ones. The standards have gone up!
Juck, if you are considering submitting a self portrait, and are short the $16 required, I am happy to sling the money to you to keep you quiet. Would that help ?
Dont you think that it is a little odd that for a major comp like this, well established over years, that the OP focuses first up on the cost of entry ?
Do you expect them to run the competition at a loss ?
Once the third party developers put together an FPV option to work with this, it will a fantastic option for drone use. Fantastic
brycesteiner: >> Noisy high ISO imagesThey don't look bad at all. I've seen much worse. Maybe I'm blind.
>>Heavy for a mirrorless cameraPeople don't get mirrorless cameras just because of the weight, but because all mirrored cameras don't hold a candle to the quality of the VF and the better images you get because of better feedback.
>>Subject tracking in continuous AF can be unreliableEasily fixed on a firmware update. Good to bring this to the attention of Sony.
>>No quick way to magnify AF point at 100% to check focusSeriously? How many people actually do this?
>>Over-sensitive eye sensorThis is a real problem. I would just turn it off
>>No touchscreenThis knocks MacBook Airs too, but I actually find touchscreens to be extremely annoying and themselves are a con. Computers and cameras that don't have them are better because then people don't leave their greasy finger prints all over, especially when the touchpads built have far better response and gestures.
Bryce, as so often happens on these forums you are seeing things from your own perspective only. The criticisms raised are absolutely valid. If I were buying this camera (I am not, I have the A7R) I would be upset that it is more heavy that what I already have (weight is a significant advantage of mirrors), I dont want noisy high ISO, and I often magnify the AP point to check focus, almost every shot. One of the advantages of this system is the use of 3rd party lenses, and I manually focus them always
