Hey nuclear, any chance you can do an unboxing and review of the D4? I think having that content on OCN would be amazing, as well as making most of the photog board jealous tongue.gif

Any chance there's going to be an F7 with the new tech from the D4?

Probably not, but that would be awesome.

So.. with about 3 weeks left till bonus day, I'm trying to figure out exactly what it is I want to do with some of the money. My original plan was sell my 5Dc and pick up a 5Dii with bonus money, and be good for a while on gear (hopefully)... but now, I'm kind of rethinking that a little bit.

Firstly, nobody has made me any reasonable offers on my 5D. I got one guy that wanted to offer me $925 for everything (including grip, extra batteries, extra charger, etc). I dont regret that at all, my 5D is in awesome condition,etc.

But beyond live view, higher ISO (which I can do in the camera if I really need to via exposure comp), and a couple of other things, I really dont have a need for it. If I want video or am shooting action, I have my 7D; else, for portraits and landscapes, etc, I feel like the 5Dc is perfect for me.

I am back on the 35L kick though. Adorama will have them for $1255 brand new (that's $2 cheaper than refurb + tax direct from Canon), and after shooting with my 85 a bit today, I really think that a 35L will be a good complement to it (better than the 50). I could actually get it for cheaper if I return the 430 EX ii I bought back in the middle of December (I had a credit from my 70-200 purchase) but I'd have to send that back soon, and I kind of want to keep the 430s in case of emergency (or in case I actually get to do any of the funky lighting stuff I wanna try this year).

35 1.4 on full frame is just some sort of insanely good combo. You can NEVER go wrong with it. Also I have a working D70 I got for basically free, wonderful.

Today was officially the first day I've used a Canon SLR and not griped about the ergonomics. I was at my local botanic garden shooting the N2020, and a lady asked me to take a picture for her. Canon 60D, 18-135 IS. Must say that was a very nice setup to hold, and the 60D felt surprisingly good in my hands...

I just bought new tripod legs and simultaneously butchered my pan head mount. Livid as hell.

I really have to say the 60D is really quite comfortable in the hands.

Seriously?? Dudeman already hates me. But I suppose I could post some pics if you like. Be forwarned, if it's not the high iso phenom it's supposed to be, it's going back. In that case I'll find a used LNIB D3s.

The samples I've seen aren't any different, to my eye, than those of the D3S. That being said 12800 looks about the same as 800 on my D90 mad.gif
