Yet another blatant example of Canon crippling their non-pro cameras. How long do we have to wait until the 7D series gets a state-of-the-art voice recorder?
If these lenses are going to be officially announced soon then DPR already has the information. They are using a loophole (in the form of quoting a "rumor site") to unofficially announce the lenses without breaking any confidentiality agreement. Very clever indeed.
Rbrt: USB 3.0 ! Why is it that so many others have stayed with 2 for so long?
USB 3.0 is a little bit of a marketing gimmick. Most hard drives/PC cannot support the 5Gibt/sec rate so it's not all that useful today.
I'm a fan of Vanguard products. They do not have a high profile name but they make both quality bags and tripods. I have an Uprise 38 and have used it for business trips as well as a general work bag. It is well made, has tons of pockets, expandable and has a professional clean look. Glad to see Vanguard getting some visibility here.
marike6: What did we learn? That the 24-70 Nikkor is still the best standard zoom money can buy, the D800E the highest resolving camera DSLR in existence, and that the Tamron 24-70 VC, especially on the D800, is a great value.
What did we learn? That people will continue to believe what they want to believe regardless of what the information and data show.
