On article Canon unveils stabilized EF 85mm F1.4L lens (531 comments in total)
In reply to:

1Dx4me: this lens is not for a guy that is used to Nifty 50!!!! i think the $1599 is a very reasonable price for a lens of this caliber and it will sell like hotcake (to people that understand the value of super lenses such as this) when ready for sale!!! makes me laugh hard when i see some comments that canon should sell this lens for $600!!!! you should stick with your EFS lenses and go away ;-)

Agree!
Being said, I wish Canon can produce 135L F2 IS as long as the quality is the same or better than older version. For now, I'll stick with 85mm f1.8 until full review of 85mm L 1.4 IS is out.

I always like something like StreetWalker® Rolling Backpack V2.0 as I shoot a lot on location. Dedicated backpack or roller does not serve my purpose. Being said, I also own lowepro roller and I only use it when I travel out of state.

StreetWalker® Rolling Backpack V2.0 is probably what I will buy once BHphoto has it in stock.

My favorite lens: 24-70L II and 70-200L IS II. However, I just wish 70-200L IS II is lighter. Saving up $ for 16-35L III. In term of prime lens, my choice is 135L

This is great for on location shooting. I'll grab two when they're available. I own AD600, AD360 so I know how good it is.

I love his pictures and style of shooting. It's all about to understand the subject and capture the right moment. Dream job!

On article Meet two nomadic photographers who travel full-time (152 comments in total)

Congrat to the couples with their rewarding lifestyle. I'd like to travel and there are many places on my bucket list. However, with family, mortgage, work, kids...etc..., living that dream seems to be out of touch. Hmm...may be we should have done that when we're young, no family, no kids :)

obviously, this is a type of art ( and I admire the the technique here), but I don't understand why a couple would like this type of offensive wedding (to me it's kind of weird) as wedding is the most beautiful thing ever happened to man and woman. And I agree with some of the folks here that the couple may be an experienced model. IMO, it's a great showcase.

Emacs23: At the cost of colors?
Although that should not be such a huge problem considering how color blinded modern Canon cameras are.

I'll stick with my trusty 35mm L 1.4 and save $ for 24-70mm L II which i will use often.

On article Opinion: Why the Canon XC10 is a big deal (797 comments in total)
In reply to:

Nukunukoo: I want this camera. I want it to go down to $1800 next year!

some of local news and tv guys in my area start switching to use iphone to record movie clips because bringing large camcorder is not convenient for covering the news. However, i see them still hang a dslr around their neck for taking picture.

So may be XC10 is game changing for them. For me, i probably spend 2500 on new 5D III. We will have to wait and see this in real world experience from the users before judging it.

Lassoni: What's the camera that the sigma is attached to in the second picture? I don't see mode selector. Some sigma camera?

Too bad, it does not support Canon 550EX as i have several.

If this thing works great, i think i'll let pocketwizard TT1/TT5/AC3 go. I shoot mostly manual flash when off camera anyway.

I look at their site and the manual does not mention of changing power of strobe. If it does, then it's a big plus for me.

I'll wait and see the review.

On article Best Camera of 2012: And the Winner is... (1413 comments in total)

Hmmm....I'm not sure about the how the poll goes, but i would agree with someone here that not all of us can put our hand on all of these gears and gives honest opinion.

I still use 5D II and saving $$$ for 5D III (and yes, i have tried 5D III from some of my friends who own it).

Anyway, it's interesting that Olympus gets in 1st place and i'd love to try it out...
