Lots of very high quality images in this challenge!
Very nice! I see you used the 135L, my favorite lens :-).
Also used a Lee Big stopper for the long exposure
Collett: Looks like a sweet walk around combo. Significantly lighter than my 5dIII plus 50L.
Because the Zeiss will likely be as good (and perhaps better) as the 50L at F1.8, while the Canon 50F1.8 is not and is not even close. I am thinking any new Canon 50F1.8 is going to weigh significantly more than the nifty fifty, have better IQ but doubtful it will be as good as this Zeiss, and have a price tag closer to the Zeiss. Also, Canon does not have a FF body that comes close to the weight of the Sony - nor one that is 36mp. Add the saving in weight of the body AND the lens - and it is significant.

Very nice capture!
HGFGKM: Are photos from aquaria allowed in this challenge?
Wondering the same thing.
Looks interesting to me - as a complement to my other Canon DLSR's. This form factor will be sweet when coupled with a 24-28mm pancake lens. Too many issues with Canon's mirrorless, especially w/r/t focus. The size and weight is small enough to keep many Canon DSL shooters from trying 4/3's, Sony Nex, Oly, Fuji - etc. as a supplement to their DLSR. Why not have the functionality of a DLSR, small size, and the ability to swithch lenses with your other Canon bodies compaired to the alternatives? I have an older Rebel that my wife uses and I use when I want to travel light, and this or its successor will likely be that camera body's successor - if they don't come up with a FF version of the same (understadably a bit larger) :-)
Collett: THIS CHALLENGE SHOULD BE THROWN OUT. INCONSISTENT AND ABRITRARY RULES HAVE BEEN APPLIED.
No - you made the comment that they would be allowed and left many entries alone that were clearly not the photographers POV - and relying upon that I entered the challenge (only one entry). Then my entry got disqualified andthe others were still in at that point. It appears you dumped the others in an attempt to be consistent. Look - the problem is you changing the rules as you go alongbecause you were not so clear initially. If you change your rules - you should err on the side of being overly inclusive and letting the voters decide as was you INITIAL decision. However, these discussions would have likely been spoilers for entrys such as mine with the poll vaulters feet anyways regardless of what the initial rules said.
See your statement below "I just cancelled the disquallification on this photo and a couple others. On reassessment I decided that technically it meets the criteria of it being your feet with a background and I will leave it up to the voters to decide how fantastic it is." You did not cancel the others when I made the statement and instead you changed your mind again in stating that you disqualified all of these - hence the term abritrary at the time I made the post.
