If you bought a Canon 5D Mark II you bought the wrong Mark II

That’s right because for a fraction of the price you could have bought a Fuji GW690II . I know what your thinking, well if I didn’t have a 5D Mark II I couldn’t call myself a pro. That’s right but you could tell all the poseurs that there is more to life than digital full frame, over twice as much more to life. The Fuji GW690II’s image is 2-1/4 x 3-1/4 which is 57.15 x 82.55mm and a 5D Mark II is 24 x 36mm. Put the pieces of your mind back together and crunch some more numbers for me.  A 5D Mark II cost $2,499 at Adorama right now and the three versions of the GW690 run from about $400-900 at KEH, which leaves you about $2,000 for a scanner and film.

Canon lens rumor

May 21, 2010 Leave a comment

According to a U.S. tech rep from the midwest Canon is developing an affordable prime to compete with Nikon’s popular 35mm f/1.8.  The lens is supposed to be a 31mm f/1.8 with a the same micro USM motor found in the current 50mm f1.4.  To say that PTC is excited about this is an understatement.  Let’s hope this ain’t just a rumor.  Peace.
