jackpro: this is another option http://enlightphotopro.com/gear/the-orbis-ringflash/

the orbis is designed to minimise hotspot at flash connection point so sinister bottom lighting it is not - the rayflash advantage is it can take my 85L the orbis can't http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=EeUt9PF6jD0#t=162

Nishi Drew: Reading the comments, it is clear how many people can't handle switching lenses :)

A light Canon 6D with a 24-70 f2.8 will be the wedding shooters choice but sigma hit it out of the park with the pricing wow

cool - people are an interesting subject & as long as he maintains copyright via publishing a low volume coffee table book no harm done. it gets a bit dodgy when sites like dpreview promote the photog by publishing pics that it gets a bit nefarious.

///M: WOW, Canon can spend all this R&D on matched cinema lenses (which will likely be only sold to rental houses) for this niche market, but can't come up with a viable mirrorless camera with compact lenses, really? 1/2 of the DSLR sales in Japan are mirrorless cameras, it does not matter how small the crop sensor bodies get, they are still big and bulky compared to the micro 4/3 and other systems.

The video industry is a huge untapped market for Canon DSLR is declining as mirrorless rises. I think Canon as usual knows exactly where the money is.

Roberto Mettifogo: very good for movie making, solid, precise focusing and follow focus ready, precise markings on the barrel, don't complain about price guys, this is not for the sunday photographers... it is a high end lens for digital cinematography, and most of the user will rent them, the price is good.

awesome in vimeo link these cinema lenses have the higher contrast not unlike zeiss but still that creamy look of canon top notch also see this http://vimeo.com/55985070 canon zeiss compare

On Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Preview preview (128 comments in total)

Interesting thinking going on at Canon HQ. Couple this with a 6D wifi uploading straight to facebook, low light focusing camera, perfect events rig combo, as you wouldn't shoot below F4 anyway.

On Fashion Shoot: Tips from a Pro article (82 comments in total)

Good peek at the fashion photography world. This view centres on hair shots, Catwalk is more sports photography & editorial is the super budget end. Advertising catalogue work is the well paid end. Great read!

On Canon EOS 6D preview (1035 comments in total)

Untethered event photography in low light direct to facebook is the new market segment, Canon have produced the perfect camera for that. SD cards are cheap, The camera is similar priced to the MKII with better low light, Interchangeable focus screens is that an option? 97% coverage viewfinder is fine for run & gun work, lighter for hand held is always better. I am not sure that Canon have stumbled at all. GPS tagging has been wanted as well. People who make money out of event photography will be quietly pleased. Occasional sport shooters may still need the MkIII. I see a lot of wedding shooters who use the occasional prime as being very interested as well. Sure Nikon have some great cameras but the lens market for Canon is so much bigger with second hand lenses a plenty as amateurs switch brands .
