Re: Accidental Lens Release

Hey, Ron2 - I wouldn't be too sure that some of these guys got the point.  Lots of fanboys who think of the Canon brand as a religion and trolls that just want to argue.  One of my personal favorites is the guy who thinks that the lens release button is so big so you can change lenses with gloves on.  My other favorite is the guy who doesn't want any changes to the release button even if they result in an improvement.  
You gotta love it ...

"Great you got the point at last."

 

Not so sure about that but you certainly haven't got the point.  The button on a 1 series is substantially the same as it always has been. The size is nearly the same and it is somewhat recessed.  Exactly the way I want it !

A lot of Canon stuff. Along with, a lot of other stuff.

Re: Accidental Lens Release

It's not so much a loyalty to a brand... it's annoyance with people who wont accept responsibility for their own actions or inattention.   

 

 

 

Sure, everyone occasionally makes a mistake.  But repsonsible people own their mistake.  They don't look for someone else to blame.

I don't know whether it makes me a fanboy or a troll, but my personal favorite is that I can float over this spat, not caring who's right or who wins, because I've always held my cameras in a way that keeps any part of my hand from being anywhere near the button. Problem(?) solved!  Smiley Wink

LOL! Indeed - this may be why they don't seem to get it - they don't actually have time to use their cameras - they are too busy here denying that there could possibly be an issue with a Canon product!

 

Fanboys much? Hehe.

Nice to see you boys can do math for whatever reason?  Let's see now just who has the experience.  I am over 70 and been retired for 14 years from a very large major company where I did photography.  Plus I ran a good private photography business.  I still work every day to this day.  I got my first camera in 1955.  I still have it.  I shoot both brands of camera.  Nikon and Canon.  You can read some of my posts where I legitimately critique Canon.

 

I will try to show a little more courtesy to you two but I think I am well qualified to comment on this issue. I have seen your type many times.  One day you buy a high dollar camera and next week you are experts.  Nice!

 

Your complaint is nonsense.  Learn how to use your camera and stop whining about it.

A lot of Canon stuff. Along with, a lot of other stuff.

Re: Accidental Lens Release

I’m new to this forum because a few days ago my 24-105 IS II fell off my 5D MkIII.  I read through this entire thread and since there seems to be a dispute about whether the cause is poor or sloppy user technique or poor design of the lens release button, I decided to see if I could find some of the poster’s work to see if they looked like advanced users or not.  I started at the beginning and found an Instagram page for michaelgirman the first poster.  I’ve got to say that judging from his photographs, he has a sound grasp of technique.  He’s shot everything from available light portraits to travel to abstracts with some studio shots.  My conclusion is that anyone who can get the results with a 5D that he does, isn’t sloppy and doesn’t have poor technique.  Draw your own conclusions.
