Re: Accidental Lens Release

Agree Schmegg and like you I hope Canon are wiser and can at least look into this and consider it further in future designs

Re: Accidental Lens Release

"I hope Canon are wiser..."

 

I do too and they leave it as is.  I do not want it one tiny bit more difficult to change lenses. If Canon has features you don't like and can't seem to over come, try a different brand.  I like it the way it is.  Most of us do that is why your concern is falling on deaf ears.

 

You admit you are aware of the "so called" problem, yet you still succumb to it.  Alter your technique!

"I'm sure almost everyone except the most thick-headed would agree that a well designed lens mount system would prevent accidental release of the lens in all but the most violent and freakish circumstances."

Re: Accidental Lens Release

ebiggs1. What camera and version do you like the way it is? 5D mark 3 or the 1DX. Two different designs which one do you want Canon to be wiser about?

I don't have a 1Dx or a 1Dx Mk II but I have all the rest.  Excluding the Rebels and xxD, that is.  No 6D either.  I still have my 1D dinosaur from the stone age.  

 

I have owned Rebels in the past but I have sold or given away all of them.

If you're asking when is there going to be a recall.  There is no way to answer your question without concurring with its' false premise.  Pushing and releasing the button does not unlock the lens.  Period.  Releasing the lens requires what engineers refer to as a "double action".  You must hold the button, and then begin to rotate the lens.

Re: Accidental Lens Release

Canon are onto it, every thing we thought was needed and more, has been implemented on the Canon 1Dx mark 2 the latest pro level DSRL from Canon
The 1DX is exclusively a pro camera. It is interesting that Canon see the importance of this

Re: Accidental Lens Release

Boy, some of the guys on this site are going to go ballistic when they find out how much harder it to push this button.  It's just not right that the inconvenience they'll suffer because of  this new design will come at the expense that lenses can't accidentally be unlocked.

Re: Accidental Lens Release

Great you got the point at last. By the way you said if canon every released these features again you would fight it. I don't hear you fighting
