Epson 4000

09 April 2005 - 06:16 PM

If anyone has an Epson 4000 (or know someone who does), could you send me a message please?

I would like to ask a favor and have someone do an 8x10 print that I can use a comparison with another brand. I'd be happy to hand over a few bucks to cover ink/paper if that is an issue.

I need to buy a large volume printer within the next 30 days or so.

Thanks :-)

New Canon Lenses?

05 April 2005 - 08:05 AM

I know this is outside of the realm of lenses for uw stuff, but I just thought I would ask. I am wondering if anyone has heard any rumors about Canon releasing some new L series lenses?

The EF 24-70mm F2.8 has been plagued with problems relating to soft images at anything less than F4 - which is a shame. I am a Canon fanatic, but it's ridiculous to pay $1200-$1300 (US) for an F2.8 lens that is gaining a rep for only being sharp at F4. (I've thought about buying one just to test it myself, but Im holding off). I really need a fast lens in this range... or longer. Maybe I am a perfectionist, but if I buy a 2.8, I expect my images to be sharp at 2.8.

So... my question is basically... has anyone heard any rumors about a replacement for the EF 24-70 F2.8
... OR....
any rumors about a next gen replacement for the EF 70-200 F2.8 IS lens? (I haven't heard of sharpness problems with the 70-200, just throwing that out there as well.)
