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.

Chaitanya S: Hopefully that remote will work(via firmware upgrade) with M5 as well in future.

yes, the remote will work with the pz-e1 accessory in controlling the zoom of lens.

DPAF can be quite disruptive for other cameras in its class.

On article New Canon EOS 77D sits between Rebel T7i and EOS 80D (52 comments in total)

basically a 80D in rebel sized package. though its going to be tough using that 45 point af with EOS XXXD ergonomics.

Chaitanya S: That tripod collar doesnt inspire confidence. Also 10-24mm is quite compact, when is that lens expected to release?

It looks similar to one seen on 150-600mm lens which is quite plasticy and fragile though 70-200mm lens isnt too heavy and might be fine. Also Arca dovetail is a nice addition but that Arca swiss dovetail seems more like a guideline rather than a standard. Between different manufacturers there always are some issues with interoperability of Arca style quick release products.

Chaitanya S: $400 for a flash with GN of 45 only. wow Sony users must be really happy to spend on overpriced crap.

@brendon1000: have you ever gone to Sony for service in India, its one of the most frustrating experiences you will ever face. Turn around times of 2 months(if you are lucky) and countless hours of arguing with incompetent staff. Thats one of the reasons why you shall never buy a camera from consumer electronics manufacturer. Nikon and Canon are lightyears ahead when it comes to after sales service, hell even Tamron and Sigmas service centres are better compared to Sony. I didnt know Nissin also didnt have service centre in India, though they have appointed official distributors for their products here.

Chaitanya S: Eagerly waiting for review of 10-24, should be good video users.

@Birdiemaker: Come on down to Himalayas or Deccan plateau and you will understand why f/4.5 is too much. I usually end up using ND filters as the camera warns about too high shutter speed during daytime shooting. Different people have different needs, for what I shoot(animals in their habitats in broad daylight) I dont need fast lens.

If you want small sized flashes, Nissin's i series of flashes are cheaper than this flash.

10-24mm is ultrawide angle zoom so DOF is not a concern, you can always set the lens to f/4.5 or slower and treat it as a constant aperture lens. Also I am not sure where you checked the price but 10-14 is only 499$ on preorder and at that price its an incredible deal. Much cheaper than Canon and Nikon's offering of same focal range.

couchpotato: There are plenty of 512GB or even 1TB USB flash drives out there.

Corsair Voyager GTX has 256GB and 512GB versions with 450MB/s read and 360MB/s write on the market for more than a year. How can Sandisk claim it has the highest capacity and fastest USB flash drive?

@Howaboutraw: Not sure where you are living but Corsair has been a reputed memory manufacturer for ages now. Only recently they ventured into making other Pc parts(seems like every Ram maker has been doing that now).
@Couchpotato: Intel was also doing everything in house but since Samsung entered ssd market they were caught sleeping with pants off. Now sadly even Intel has to source controllers from 3rd party.

Usb 3.1 is quite misleading marketing term. That drive still uses 5Gbps interface not full 10Gbps interface.
