  • I agree with you John.  I have been holding out for a new 1series camera that would be more along the lines of my 1Ds Mark III.  I love that camera and as much as the 5D Mark IV is amazing, the ...
  • The 5D m1 was amazing as my first DSLR after a 10 year break from my old film cameras.  However, the camera that just checked off all of my boxes and blew me away every time I used it was when I ...
  • I agree with what all of you are saying.  Just for me, to cover my 11-24, Sigma 105 f/1.4, and as an alternative to the drop ins for my 300 f/2.8, 400 f/2.8 and 600 f/4 I thought this was a pretty ...
  • Congrats!  I don't regret getting my v.II at all.  And that extra cash certainly helps ease the blow. Enjoy!
  • Thank you!  I will definitely post some pics once I shoot more with both.  I've shot more with the 600 at this point for capturing the many species of birds around my area.  But looking forward to ...
  • I too opted for the v. II of the 400 and 600.  I kept scouring the internet for image data for the v.III lenses but all I really heard was about the weight savings.  Saving $7500USD between these ...
  • I have this for my R and just used it for the first time this past weekend with a model on a location shoot.  Lots of bright sunlight and I wanted to shoot wide open (f/1.4 mostly).  I didn't get ...
  • Frank, I agree with you.  I bought some Aeos and Neo 2 Rotolights as well as some Godox HSS strobes.  Different uses but both equally interesting and good for the right situation. When I first ...
  • If you have the v.2 of both the 1.4x and 2.0x they will stack (that's what I use on my 300mm f/2.8).  But, if you use the v.3 of the 2.0x it won't stack to a v.2 or v.3 of a 1.4x.  Unless you buy ...
  • Well let's hope for both of our sake.
  • I only have the v.1 but I have to agree, that lens is so versatile and amazing AF and handling.  I have the older v.2 Extenders (1.4x and 2.0x) and while it slows the lens down a bit, it comes in ...
  • Perhaps, but I've never seen Canon announce anything they manufactured as becoming "obsolete."  And while I get your point, I think there will always be someone using older gear that wants a ...
  • I agree.  But also, I think there might be support for the v.2's until about 2028 or so.  I just think the resale will be strong for a while and if you change your mind or want to upgrade later ...
  • I was in the same boat.  But, for $4K less and the fact that whether I bought v.3 or v.2 of this lens, I would usually use it on a monopod or tripod, so the weight difference wasn't the main ...
  • Hermit, Do you have any sources we can see/read regarding these claims?  I am trying to wait to see more reviews of both the 400/600 III lens before pulling the trigger.  I feel the v. II lenses ...
  • As a photographer who chose to go with Canon in 2008 when I got back into photography - I specifically wanted the 85mm f/1.2L II.  So I get your obsession.  After using it for over a decade I ...
  • That's exciting!  I know I'm debating between the 400 III and the 600 III. Not sure I can afford both, and either could be effective. I look forward to hearing what you think and seeing images from ...
  • Hi srs0, I'm in the same boat.  I am about to purchase either the 400mm f/2.8 III or the 600mm f/4 III.  For the large investment I too am concerned where the EF mount will go and what is coming up ...
  • Thank you to you and RawPaul etc., for the information.  I finally get to get out this weekend and shoot. So I will check out how the RF 50 as well as my old faithful 85/1.2 work on the R.  ...
  • LSF, Thanks for sharing.  I just got my R this past week and haven't gotten the chance to really put it through it's paces yet.  Just fiddling about the house with it after work.  But I had a ...
