About me:

My large collection of Canon FD lenses is back to life. Thanks to mirrorless cameras and adapters. I particularly love the FD 35-105mm w/macro, f/3.5, which is well known for its clarity and sharpness, and the FD 50mm, 1.2, L.

sh10453: In my experience, I have found the MicroSD cards to be very unreliable.
I have used various brands, including Samsung 64GB, SanDisk 128GB, ..., etc.
None of them lived up even close enough to the designated capacity.
In fact the SanDisk 128GB U1 stopped taking anything after 10GB of data.
The Samsung 64GB Class 10 is as bad or even worse.

I have given up on MicroSD cards beyond 8GB.

I would think that the heat would cook this tiny card before it completes loading the 400GB.

Thanks to all.
I'll try a different source.

The Chinese are getting very close to that on eBay, and at around $30 or less.
I don't need the genuine Italian leather to protect my gear. It won't do it anyway.

Right, and the made in Taiwan stuff some years back.

Even if that is their aim, they did the lousiest job they could do.
I think a small team of 5th graders would have done a better video.

I'm surprised this slipped through DPR's EIC

Good job ... Now I'm going to Wendy's for some fries.

I liked their grilled chicken breast mandarin salad, and I have heard the same from many people.
Wendy's stupid wisdom decided to discontinue that salad :(

This is what you get when you subcontract with Nikon to make your lenses, especially in the early 1990s. ... :) Hold your horses.

I respect this initiative from Canon (to do the free repair even on a lens that is 24 years old).

I'll just wait for the Chinese version!!

I have no doubt the YN-26EX RT will be out soon :)
I have paid Canon for a dozen speedlights or more over the years, but not this time.

@Barry ... I think "Chinese" has become generic for cheap labor, which applies to many other countries, like the Philippines, Vietnam, Bangladesh, etc.
So it makes no difference.

You are absolutely right.
I think the question should be:
WHEN WILL THESE CONSUMERS LEARN???

"In other words: approximately double the cost of the regular Leica M Monochrome Typ 246.".
Well of course, this one comes in a gift box, which alone is worth $8,000, almost!!!

Investors will likely make some good money on this one, but maybe 20 to 30 years down the road.

How are the results of the M series using EF "L" lenses (with an adapter)?
Anyone is doing that?

I'm interested in getting the body only when this one comes out.

On article Canon unveils stabilized EF 85mm F1.4L lens (530 comments in total)
In reply to:

MrImprovement: Full frame, sharp, good bokeh, but manual focus 85/1.4's are available for under $350. The Nifty 50 from Canon is cheap, and has AF. Thus neither the construction of the 85/1.4, nor the addition of AF, can possibly justify the price. $499 to $699 is a far more reasonable range, if that.

Obviously you have never owned a Canon "L" lens (one with a red ring).
So I find it impossible to explain to you.
I think you are better off if you stick with the EF-s 18-55mm f/3,5-x.x.

In reply to:

Najinsky: Sorry.

I keep looking at it to see if perhaps my mood is influencing my response, but it's same every time. Visually unattractive, contrived, pretensious, me too.

As a personal project to explore technique and practice skills, it's probably a great technical result, and probably a success, but as something to share, it generates only disinterest for me.

Don't want to sound too harsh, but when something is published in this manner, I feel an honest critique is deserved all round.

Sorry.

I couldn't have said it better.
To each their own, but this is not how I enjoy photography.
Photo of the week? MEH.

I decided to do it. First time to do an eclipse. My EF lenses are too short (70-200mm L is the longest), and I knew that won't do it.
So I resorted to my old FD lenses and used a 130-650mm Soligor (Canon FD mount) with an FD-to-Sony-E adapter.
Overall, I wasn't disappointed with the results.

Glad that the battery finally died ... One minute would've been good enough. I feel dizzy now.
