I wonder what the macro magnification would be with the optics reversed?

On Canon's Q4 earnings report shows camera sales are down article (315 comments in total)
In reply to:

Donnie G: No surprises here. Despite a market wide overall decline in camera sales that shows no signs of ending anytime soon, Canon profits while the competition starves. Canon's marketshare remains unchanged while its competitors can only manage to take marketshare away from each other. How is that possible? While the competition cuts each others' throats by slashing prices on their products to fire sale levels in a vain attempt to increase sales volumes in this constantly shrinking market, Canon has chosen to do the opposite, which is sell fewer ILC cameras at higher profit margins that reflect today's market realities, and sell more EF lenses. Canon rightly recognizes that their EF lens mount and EF lenses are much more valuable commodities than anybody's camera body. After all, even the competition depends on Canon lenses for sales success. I might buy a new camera body every 6 to 10 years, but I buy, trade, and rent lenses all the time. Which lenses? Canon EF lenses. :)

Donnie is right about the Canon lenses being a valuable commodity. It swayed me to their camp years ago when I went digital and the line still offers high quality (and high cost) choices. If Canon shows me a major (image) upgrade to my trusty T2i THEN I will buy.

On Canon EOS 7D Mark II Review preview (1261 comments in total)

Thanks for the in-depth review DPR. The 7D MKII really makes sense for me, currently being a T2i user and invested in several Canon lenses.. Much of my photography is outdoors shooting wildlife in sometimes less than ideal weather and light. Accurate and sensitive AF especially for BIF, good Hi ISO performance, serious weather resistance and pro-level build quality and a big RAW buffer click nearly every box of upgrades I could want. The new sensor tech available is amazing as your Nikon D750 video demonstrated, so please keep up the good work.

Good reach, not great plus latest IS. Very useful MFD for flowers, butterflies, etc. Not super heavy with a nice zoom range for landscapes or portraits. Just need to wait for the actual image results, then possibly bite the bullet and make the investment!

I actually enjoyed the aircraft and hydroplane pics. Well done DPR. AF tracking looks good.

SunnyFlorida: Simply Awesome! an OMD-5 with this lens will be a sweet combo

Kind of reminds me of the 50mm Pentax Super Takumar I bought used recently for $40.00.
