  • I thought the 400 DO II came with a white plastic element cover/plug from the factory?  I've seen someone with what looked like a plastic lens plug and I assumed it was from the factory.
  • The V2 lens covers are very effective. If you find a way to damage the element with that on, you've really screwed up. The V1 covers were equally effective but a pain to put on. I liked the Lens ...
  • Replied in Annoying
    Yes... the new type sucks when putting on, great when pulling off. Overall, I prefer the older style.
  • My only complaint is... people really only care about passenger planes (yes, very self-centered), so a 238 mph closing speed would only be applicable at take-off and landing. In all other aspects,...

  • Replied in Possible...
    I'm on 1Dx4's side here, but in all honesty, a battery can lose voltage over time, and a lower output voltage could lead to slower AF performance. But, again... I doubt that would be the issue. My ...
  • Thanks for the clarification on the tone, but I don't see this as argumentative. Honestly I think the bulk of your post reinforces many of my points. The fact that you considered buying two $2000 ...
  • The 200-500 isn't a bad lens. I would say its like the 50 1.8's, great for the money, but honestly pretty average. I think the 50's have an advantage of there not being a great 50 out there (or at ...
  • I'm with you on paying a little more for the constant 5.6, but not all is great with Nikon's 200-500 5.6. While IQ is reasonable, or great considering the price, its AF is noticeably slow and its ...
  • Personally, I only shoot wildlife and landscapes, but I can say this lens changed the way I see wide angle photography. In some respects, you could say it changed the way I see photography in ...
  • That's actually apart of the thinking that brought up this thread, did Canon just shoot itself in the foot as far as sales go? Why buy a 600L III when you may have to adapt it new body a couple of ...
  • Created poll thread EF to RF Lens Purchases
    If you're like me, you are probably questioning any new lens purchases (EF or RF mount). With the RF mount looking to be the direction Canon is moving, it seems a little odd to buy new EF lenses ...
  • I think he borrowed this copy to determine whether he wants to buy it.
  • Every test crop I've looked at shows the edge being better than the corners. Here's a test site ( Optical Limits ) that uses numbers to validate the relative score of a lens. Personally, I've never ...
  • While the illustration does show a hair of increased size, I don't know where that rumor came from, but I'd guess the optical illusion of showing the lens elements moved back helps to make it ...
  • Replied in Cost
    Yeah, I'm with you, and will hope for the best. Tech is definitely getting better in regards to lenses, and its not a stretch to think it may not be as bad as it has been in the past.  One other ...
  • Personally, I'm very sensitive to CA, both lat. and long., but I don't feel like these are bad at all for a 1.2 lens wide open. But to each their own.
  • Replied in Cost
    True... but I don't know a soul who thinks focus by wire is an improvement in usability. Fly by wire on planes offers HUGE advantages, for example, by controlling multiple movable surfaces in ...
  • Replied in Cost
    I'd bet the biggest reason for focus by wire is simply cost. It wasn't put on the $120 - $200 lenses for nothing. You can delete the physical hardware and the software is the biggest hurdle from ...
  • Replied in Possibly...
    I have two reasons in mind. First,  it is very possible it lost a little IQ because of the optical corrections they needed to make to drop the weight. This formula is substantially different, and ...
  • Rumored specifications (1) 28MP full frame sensor (2) Dual Pixel Auto Focus (3) IBIS (In Body Image Stabilization) (4) 10fps ...
