    Ya it was unopened, like I got it from the place.......put it on Craigslist and had 4 emails and 2 calls within 45 minutes
     

  7. wow that's amazing, thanks for the tip. Do you remember what the wording on your craigslist advertisement was?
    Can you pm it to me so I can sell my cards on craigslist also? And what was your suggested price on craigslist? :x:

    AZ, like a bauce!
    faster read/write speed. So if you shoot in bursts, the time it takes your camera to write it's cache to the CF card is significantly less. Hence, you can shoot pics faster.

  11. werd

    but have you noticed any difference between 2gig ultra 2 and 2gig extreme 3?

    I had a 2 gig extreme 3 once and that is the only card that ever failed on me. Not to mention I didn't really notice a huge difference between the extreme 3 and ultra 2 :dunno:

    don't get me wrong though, I still say extreme 3 > ultra 2

    yes, which means it has to be much more expensive, or have corners cut in its design.
     

  21. I'm sure since it's an L series lens there is no corner cutting. I don't think the 70-200 has many corners cut, 400mm f/2.8 doesn't seem to have any corners cut..

    BMW doesn't cut many corners on their M series vehicles. :dunno:

    you pull the SHITTIEST analogies ever
     

  24. For Canon the Canon L series lenses are "the best"....
    For BMW the BMW M series cars are "the best".... Don't agree with that go into a BMW thread and say a 3 series is better than an M series :mamoru:


    what would be a better non-photography related analogy?

    its like talking to a bratty child :bash:

    Lenses are not cars, and although I quite like the m3 and m6, they are not an example of no expense spared. Infact like mercedes their build quality has been a little questionable over the last few years.

    Corners are cut in every product, particularly lenses. Why does the 16-35 have any visible corner distortion at all? COST

    Sure it is a great lens, no one is arguing that with you. But you are insane if you think that price alone means better quality.

    Why did you bring the lens debate into this thread? Just accept that the ef-s is a great lens with similar performance and better focal range than a 16-35. This makes it a better choice for someone with no intention of going FF.
