    It is tempting for sure these sale prices, I promised myself no more big purchases for a while since buying my 500mm f/4 IS. But the prices of some of these items is substantial marked down!...

    Not to take away from what you said, but the 5Ds could also do 1.6 crop modes. Which is a bit of a misnomer because it doesn't really crop anything and just basically a guide for you to crop in post,...

    In so many ways a lens like this, when it is such a huge upgrade is kinda easy to review and recommend.

    It is just a tremendous upgrade no matter how you slice and dice it compared to the original...

    This looks like an impressive camera for the money, something that kinda interests me.

    Improvements for a birder such as myself.

    I'll take a look at my 500mm f/4 IS tomorrow morning.

    I'm very glad I purchased it. And while I often wish for a 600mm f/4 IS, I don't miss the nearly 12lbs it weighs! My hands are really sore...

    I've got some third party batteries and chargers and they all work. I like better my original canon stuff, but as you said it is very expensive. Keep an eye out on your local classifieds, one time I...

    Yeah, that's pretty cool. Personally having used the 1Dx III, I would spring for that. I have a 1Dx and it is fine body, but it is a far cry from the Mark-III. Night and day the difference. And they...

    Well at least you still have your gear, I also had a phase of not doing any birding. But I find that I never dropped the hobby completely even if I took a hiatus. Do you have a site or a flikr page...

    Good to know, all my lenses get used regularly. So knock on wood that won't happen to me. LOL.

    I'm assuming you are still very much into birding as always Nate? I'm tempted to no end to get a...

    Good points, if they could add AF tracking that be crazy. Although I'm pretty certain that is physically impossible at 192 fps. It's processing power is pretty well maxed out just dealing with taking...

    Just saw on my FB feed from the Digital Picture that they pulled the firmware update. That is very strange.

    I agree with you 100%, the 600mm f/4 IS II is a fantastic lens. Very versatile and still very modern. If you are into computers at all reminds me of some of Nvidia's Titan version of their graphics...
  19. RF 800mm and 1200mm lenses, do they make sense?

    The 800mm doesn't make a lot of sense to own in my honest opinion. It is much more expensive than a 600mm f/4 and extender and less sharp. If you compare it to the EF 800mm f/5.6, the EF version is...

    Well I guess there is a new firmware that allows you to shoot 195fps in RAW on the R3.

    So my question is, for how long? I know it said between 2 and 50. So does that mean it can capture up to 50...

    I think you are pretty spot on about this, while I would love for the R1 to have 50mp like the A1. Canon has been historically been pretty conservative on their high end bodies as far as resolution...

    R1, general thoughts and updated info.

    So, there has been plenty of talk about the R1. Understandably so. I was thinking of making a R1 focused thread where some of this information can be condensed.

    So from what I know, and would love...
