Pat Cullinan Jr: Hmmm... The Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G ED AF-S sells for $1800. That's $1600 less than the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM.
What should I do?
Pins and needles, needles and pins.
What should you do?.......that's easy, Tamron is optically superior to the 14-24 nikkor, it's $600 cheaper, with VC and a more useful FL......oh and 5 yrs warranty. The 11-24 is in a league on its own.
mjordan1: Please, please! No more reference to "fluorine" coatings. Fluorine is a gas at room temperature and very reactive. The coatings used are " fluoride" coatings e.g. calcium/magnesium fluoride, both of which are ionic compounds and not elements like fluorine.
Is that the same "fluoride" in our toothpaste, thanks?
AllOtherNamesTaken: According to Lenstip, the Tamron 15-30 is sharper, 1/3 the price, is stabilized, and has 5 times the warranty:
"When it comes to the duel with the Canon EF 16–35 mm f/2.8L USM II the Tamron wins hands down. The Canon was able to compete successfully only in the frame centre, on the edge of the frame it was definitely worse. Still it is possible to use filters with it, a quite important asset in this class of parameters.
To sum up the boasting of Tamron about the superior quality of their new lens proved to be true. The company managed to present a device which compares favourably with its rivals, is cheaper, has optical stabilization and a 5-year warranty period – it would be difficult not to recommend it. Independent producers have been proving for some time that they are no longer specializing in cheap equivalents of brand name lenses. The Tamron 15-30 mm is an excellent example of that strategy."
You give up 4mm, but you gain alot
Curious to see some more reviews down the road.
You can tell a nikkor fanboy, Tamron is optically superior to the 14-24, it's $600 cheaper, a more useful FL an with VC. Accept it, Canon is the undisputed UWA king!
Canon just needs to build these fast EF-M lenses; 14f1.2, 21f1.2, 35f1.2, 50f1, 85f1.2, 100f2 and 135f2. Canon will be back in the game in a heart beat
Compared to 11-24 , 14-24's mtf seems like a kit lens......just kidding, 11-24 is just better.
MPA1: Only f4? Who wants a lens that slow? I think the Nikon 14-24 f2.8 is still better.
That's what I've been waiting for(11-24), but not the price tag.
This is a SLAM DUNK class action law suit, an engineering flaw by Nikon engineers, can't get any easier than that. Nikon just needs to slow down, it seem like they are coming out with a new FF camera every six months, at that rate, something is bound to get neglected. Sony and Toshiba already providing you with top grade sensors, slooow down and get the engineering and quality control right.
D800 to D810, D600 to D610, D750 to D7??......like what they say, three strikes and you are ???!
Hopefully these FW updates will find its way to professional sporting events like FIFA, NFL, MLB, F1,.....as of now you'll find large majority of A77 bodies in high school gyms used by high schoolers and soccer moms, unlike 7D II, no road rage please, I'm just stating facts. But hey, A77 II has super uber butt kicking sensor right, HOORAY!
Petroglyph: Another release Canon users have been waiting for (7DII). This one is certainly on my watch list. I wonder how the new 100-400 with 1.4X TC 140-560 f/8 will compare to the Sigma 150-600 f/6.3 S? That's a 2600$ rig (the Canon + TC) compared to a 2000$ (the Sigma)
Canon has an edge with TC attach to it, 1.4x or 2.0x.http://www.canonrumors.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/1004002mtf.jpg
Seems like a professional price tag, but, not so professional specs.
Hey Canon, your sensors still SUCKS! No F'ing slogan will fix that . . . . Bunch of Clowns!
Hey Canon marketing clowns, you still can't hide the fact your LOSING market share due to INFERIOR sensor, swallow your pride and put Exmore sensor in eos bodies.
Peter Gurdes: LETS TAKE THE CHANCE AND GIVE THEIR VIDEOS A THUMBS DOWN!!!
let canon USA KNOW what you think!!!
that will help more then complaining here.
I just thumb it DOWN, thanks for the link.
It's just bunch of OFFICE EQUIPMENT stuff, see impossible my F'ing A$$, CANON inc is such a LOSER!
Here in Las Vegas, count down is at -5:15:08, actual time is 3:44:52 am.
rrr_hhh: I don't get it at all : may be because I'm not a native English speaker ? But really, I would be hard pressed to translate any of these sentence into my own language.
I mean : one can launch a teaser without telling anything about the subject/object coming, but why on earth making such un-understandable statements : which image of Canon do you think they to are offering to their customers ? What I get from it us just that Canon isn't able to communicate, not even at the symbolic level in order to create a positive image of the brand.
Plus, given the avalanche of negative comments targeting those who don't think Canon is able to see the impossible, well, I just feel aggressed/insulted.
Talk about a communication fiasco...
No it's not hard to put Sony Exmore R sensor in eos bodies, that in itself is impossible.
I guess Canon is FINALLY putting Exmore R sensor in eos bodies. Bravo, bravo Canon, bravo!
tom1234567: images are Nothing special Samsung NX1 will be a better camera in my opinion, with 4kvideo plus many more enhancementsCanon needs to get there act together
It is just a matter of time before Shamsung gets caught mimicking one of its competitors again. EVF is NOT meant for sports/wildlife photography, not yet.
Canon's old sensor tech will once again OUTSELL Sony sensors. Too bad Sony does not have the length and girth of the EF system. . . . Just cute little lens line up, ha ha ha, CUTE!
