I went to Digital Camera Warehouse today to get a card reader. While there I got talking to the salesman regarding the 5D3 vs the 7D and its crop factor. He says that the best lens for landscape work on a FF would be the 14mmL.

"I'll put one on the 5D2 and give you a look".

WOW!!! OK, so now I'm hooked. :wub:

But 5D3 first, almost got the money saved for that (assuming the price is in three digits ;) ). Then the saving will have to start again. Maybe for next Xmas.

Yeah, thanks for that... (he says sitting in a regional airport awaiting a flight for Adelaide, looking out the window at the open wide space of the Australian Outback...)

14mm prime and a full frame sensor, huh?

Damn this drug!!!

Yes 14mm would be nice, unfortunately my budget doesn't allow for wider than I currently have. Here are a few at 16mm

Since getting this 16-35mm zoom lens it is more often than not the lens of choice for most of my general photography. The above images were shot last Monday at Mt Donna Buang and Warburton

You're welcome, MM, I'm just here to help you. But I really don't see your problem. The 14 wont fit on your $30 Kodak PnS! :lol:

Yes, I've got the 16-35. :wub:

If, and I do stress the "if", I got the 14mm the 16-35 would be the Outback walk-around lens with the 14mm used for those extra special shots. Of course, the big advantage being the reduced number of elements and, therefore, it is faster - F/2.8.

I have do doubt that, with a little persistence, you will overcome the malady.

That image usually indicates to me that 1 & 1/4 hours of pain has come to an end... And I can ride back down and enjoy the buzz of 60+ for 20 minutes. Gravity is a ****!

walked past a teds store today and daughter let me wander in there for a peek. and noticing the x10 in the case there, asked the guy if could have a look at it. it looks a bit plain jane from the front but holding it feels a lovely piece of engineering. like the way the front manually zoomed lens works and also couples as the on/off for the camera. and that the optical viewfinder zooms with the adjustment on the zoom lens. on full extension the lens does mask part of the viewfinder. a lovely though. but its hard to know looking through the viewfinder what the auto focus of the camera is focusing on. or how to manually focus ? so while I love the optical viewfinder which was quite big and very clear, not sure its really like that on a slr that is really through the lens re zoom and focus with multi point focus identifiers slrs use. I think I would struggle with the x10 in that regard.

still better than the electronic viewfinders I loathe. I did think this was supposed to have some sort of hybrid optical/electronic?. little confused. I think i'll stick to my slr and lumix lx5 for now I think. maybe will check out the xpro 1 when its out see what thats like

Wonder why they have to go to Kenya to test it - they do have daylight in Japan.

Aaawwwhhh c'mon....don't deny a Canon field engineer an opportunity to travel somewhere exotic to test out new kit.... ;)

Maybe they were testing weather and dust seals...Japan only has Sea Lions

Boom tish!

Different prototypes are sent all around the world usually when developing the body (to test all weather conditions)... Just so happen some guy noticed one in Kenya...

They should test the camera against radiation? :ninja::P

for anyone waiting for canon to release a 24-70 f2.8 IS. looks like tamron here has delivered :)

http://www.dpreview....-70_2p8_divcusd

According to canonrumours, MkII still no IS.

Also Nikon D800 is out.

So I guess 5DMk3 can't be too far off the radar now, although they havn't fixed the 1Dx issues...

yeah looks like canon finally released the 24-70 f2.8 mkII non IS but yeah why non IS ? .... bizarre !

http://www.dpreview.com/news/2012/02/07/Canon_24-70mm_F2p8_II_24mm_f2p8_IS_28mm_f2p8_IS

also looks like 24 and 28mm IS f2.8 primes from canon yes with IS and theyre non L so probably not pricey pieces.

Must be a reason for that, although I don't really know what :P.. I wonder if Canon IS tech is heavier than others?
