lynmay: Not only is it crazy expensive, but once again
only made for men.

It would be great if female photographers could
get the tough gear made for men, but build
for the needs of active female photographers with
out it being twice as expensive.

Of course, if this company made it only the
Queen could afford it.

Thanks Saxton. I've tried several and since I travel from desert to alpine having something that fits right is a must.
Thanks again. Don't know what the LGBT response had to do with female photographers needing gear that works?

In reply to:

Francis Sawyer: Canon needs sweeping management change. They can start by hiring someone who knows something about motion and still photography, and codecs. And marketing.

And common sense. Come on, it's 2016 and Canon's cameras still don't have intervalometers on them for time-lapse. That's just one WTF example. The outdated codecs are another.

Funny thing is, Canon could've taken Red's market. And they utterly failed.

Actually the 80D now sports Interval,
but yes, they have got to start keeping up
with the competition or they will be where
Sony was several years ago after they
purchased Minolta's photo line.
Sony took several years to listen to their
patrons and some of us jumped ship and went
to Canon before Sony caught up.

On article The Canon that can: Canon EOS 80D Review (681 comments in total)

Good improvement over the 70D for sure and
it's on my short list, BUT...

What happened to Focus Peaking that Canon
has on the Class "M" camera?

Excellent! Professionals, both musician and photographer.
Great Article, but sad that it came as soon as it did.

Incredible set of photos! Truly photos that were made
and not just a copy of what "is".

Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing
your creativity and skill.

The SE works much better for portability. I just
received mine yesterday and it's replacing my 5s.
I have my professional cameras for serious photography,
so the thought of lugging a small "tablet" phone around
for dual cameras is not a concern.
The only reason that I upgraded iPhones was because
my son gifted it to me. I'll appreciate the better screen
and 12mp camera, but it's only a secondary tool.

Hopefully, as the American people begin to realize that
bigger is not always better, the corporations will follow.
In order to maintain the consumerism attitude that will
be a given, until we have nothing else to consume.

I hope it does stay up. I've been with them for years
and it's a great community of photographers of all sorts.
I would hate to loose that photography asset as well
as the community.

Hopefully this is not the only set of images for the Studio tests.
I downloaded the JPGs both from the 80D and the 7DII and noticed
that the 7DII test images are better lit than the 80D, so the
"results" from the 80D test images are not an accurate
account of the camera's ability to produce comparative
images.

Download them and take a look. If you look at the bottle
Just to the right of the 20 Schilling note you'll see that on the
80D image the bottle top and neck are lit to the right.
On the 7DII image in the same location the bottle is equally
lit on the right and left of the bottle top and neck.

You'll also see that the Test image for the 80D is darker
on the left side of the entire test image.

I can only hope that DPR will reshoot this test for the actual
review, if not then there is some marketing play going on and
the 80D may be steeling too much of the 7DII's thunder.

Hopefully not. Just wanted other members to be aware of this
and to download images for themselves.

This lens was released in 2014. Guess DPR didn't want to post a review until they were CERTAIN the lens was
a keeper ;-)

Haven't heard of a dust issue with this lens, but then
most photographers that I know use high quality
lens filters. Maybe that helps.

I discovered the same thing that Dianoda has.
I have used the reversed hood on my 70-300 L and the
100-400II to push-pull on these lenses. Works
well unless you need the hood then I just grip it
and fine tune with the zoom ring. It's the best of both
worlds.
