OlyPent: Nice to see Canon hasn't throw APS to the dogs.

@Olypent: thats a OM mount lens and quite old. I thought you were referring to 4/3 mount lens.

Those Olympus lenses were never macro lenses. So far I think Tamron's 60mm f2 is the fastest macro albeit for crop cameras. In 180/200mm focal length Sigma 180mm f2.8 is the fastest lens. Zeiss Makro Planar are another set of f2 macro lenses though they never did shoot at 1x mag ratio. Other than these generally f2.8 to f4(f3.5 to f4 for 180/200mm macro with 1 exception) is norm for macro lenses on market as generally macro lenses are rarely shot wide open.

Tonkotsu Ramen: here we go!

$350 is even cheaper than I thought

Seriously I was thinking it would come around $400 mark but at 350$ its a good lens for a lot of people.

Satyaa: I'm done carrying any flash drives like this one. They protrude out a lot and break when bumped into something. It's outdated design for today's sleek laptops.

My 512GB SD card stays always in the laptop card socket. I also have a couple of these low profile ones that can stay plugged in, but am waiting for their 512 GB versions... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00YFI1EBC/

Lexar and Sandisk both make low profile usb 3.x flash drives. Check b&h or newegg both should have it in capacities higher than 128gb.

orion1983: What distinguishes USB 3.1 from 3.0 ???

In old school definition it was doubling of speed from 3.0 to 3.1. But now thanks to genius marketting the definition of both usb 3.0 and 3.1 has been diluted to suck money out of customers. If its Usb 3.1 Gen1 then max transfer rate is 5Gbps while for Usb 3.1 Gen2 transfer speeds max out at 10Gbps(both theorotical maximums).

For its MP-E 65mm and EF 100mm f/2.8L IS macro lenses that are always in my bag and love shooting with. Those two lenses are ones I cannot think of leaving house without.

No wonder super Tele lenses are expensive.

Chaitanya S: That usb port on card reader is convenient feature. I wish more card readers came with that. Also since I only Sd and microSd dont really mind missing Cf slot or presence of CFast slot. Looking forward to review by cameramemoryspeed before picking one up to replace Transcend reader I currently use.

Just checked B&H and its listed for $35(apprx) and not $40 which is quite reasonable.

Adoption of uhs-ii cards has been slow at best now sda announces uhs-iii standard. Lets see well this standard gets adopted in industry.

Chaitanya S: Somehow that 77D has buffer for 27 RAW shots while 80D has buffer for 25 RAW. So technically 77D can shoot a little longer than 80D in drive mode.

@Redfox88: Check specifications on product page of 77D at canon's website. They have specified the buffer depth there. 190 Jpegs, 27Raw and 19 Raw+Jpeg.

Chaitanya S: Eagre to know what the pricing is going to be of this new lens, if its below 1000$ then I might get it for shooting shy lizards and mammals.

I used to own the 150-500mm lens and really hated it when using it at long end. For me a lighter lens is quite attractive especially while travelling in Himalayas and packing supplies for 2-3 weeks of trip. On many occasions 70-300mm lens is too short and generally prefer 400mm focal length for shooting mammals at higher elevations.

I dont mind narrow max aperture are tele-end but its significantly lighter(than Canon's 100-400) and little smaller which means it will be easier to carry around. I dont think it will be that cheap but at that price(if it performs well at 400mm) it will be a good purchase over any 70-300mm lens from competitors.

chile7236: I would've liked to have seen this in an F4-5.6...

but then it would have been little bigger and lot heavier. Check Canon's 100-400mm lens and you will notice the weight saving due to smaller aperture.
