The store said they're ordering a new batch, so maybe I will give them a try when they arrive. I know I can MFA or get the USB dock to handle this lens... but maybe I'm just using it as an excuse to deflect another impulse buy.

 

The dock looks pretty interesting in that it allows different MFAs for different distances:

but I've still got my 35L and I'm still waiting for the 35/2IS to join the rebate program.

the result is not ultra perfectly smooth all the way, but still light years better than what i could do handling the camera. really cool.

you moved it by hand right?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ps: can i has your amp? ^_^

Yep, moved by hand, the tripod head that i used wasn't ideal for this - didn't fit properly, so I had to be careful how i moved it - have a new one arriving tomorrow. Also my first time using a slider, so hoping it will improve with a few practice runs...smily_headphones1.gif

I ordered one as I never bought a bag that will hold everything in past due to the usual higher prices.

Oh, and Canon has finally come up with a new 20.2 MP aps-c sensor, in the 70D.

I'm glad they're continuing to stick to the LP-E6 battery.

It's unfortunate genuine Canon LP-E6 goes for $60 each eek.gif  and that the latest Canon firmware updates don't support third party LP-E6 batteries fully.  I just ordered a "genuine" Canon LP-E6 from an overseas vendor who swears it's genuine, at a better price, so we'll see..

Pretty cool autofocus feature in video mode on the 70D.

Thanks for the tip.  Got mine earlier this week and I finally filled it this morning

 

Like you, just bought it to have a bag that would hold everything but, unfortunately, I've still got too much gear!

 

 

I've actually got four more Canon lenses but two of them I never use and I'm thinking of selling the third.  Ideally, I would have liked to get one more lens in there plus a GX1/20 combo.  I'll play with it a bit more to see if I can make it work but it was still worth the $50!  On the other hand, you can also see why ThinkTank charges what they do and still get it.

post #2533 of 2679

 

Yeah, I need more llike two of these for all my gear, but for $50 shipped, I'm happy with the purchase.

 I could definitely use this bag with those rolling wheels if I shoot a wedding or something.

I ordered the EOS-M/22mm kit on $299 sale from B&H when it was already backordered, but they honored the backorders unlike Adorama who cancelled all the backorders. I just received it, and to my surprise, B&H is honoring the EOS-M/22mm backorder with EOS-M/22mm/90EX kit! That's right, 90EX flash included for my $299 order gs1000.gif

 

EOSD4257

 

I was also happy to find out the cheaper Viltrox adapter works great with EF lenses.

 

EOSD4261

 

Finally, a sample shot with EOS-M/Viltrox adapter/85L with the 90EX acting as master to fire an off-camera 580 EX II.
