I've also seen several comments stating that due to the 'collaboration' other calibrators have proven a bit sh*t. ;)

Needed to update my old Huey Pro anyway, but didn't realise when I did I'd get stiffed by NZ to the tune of 200% on top.


Cheers, Dave.

Bit hard to say really, I've only had experience with the DataColor Spyder series but they are by far the largest player out in the market internationally and the latest lot (version 4) have been a bit of a jump up hardware wise from the earlier offerings.

Not sure how much you paid, I think they are around $400.00 which is a bit more that most monitor only devices.

Next lens ...... :)

Siggy 50-500 or Tamron 150-600

Wait for few more Tamron reviews but looking promising over the siggy.

Cant afford a big white :(

I'd go for the Sigma. My girlfriend has it, and I played with the tamron last weekend (friend bought one). Image quality is similar - but the wider angle on the sigma is just that much more friendly to getting the shot. Cant always move back enough to get the shot with the tamron.

Im mainly after the 300-600 end now maybe I should have taken Mark V advice and got the 200-400L canon but got car instead :)

Ah that explains it!

IMO the 150-600 is superb value for money, the 50-500 is more isnt it? I'd rather have more on the long end than the otehr end as I have a bunch of lenses that cover shorter stuff.

For sure!

Some people will always buy 1st party but if all the reports are correct the 100-400L has been superseded by something a lot cheaper.

We're pretty sure canon will have a mkII but it will be $2k+

Yep - If I didnt already have the 100-400 - I would pick up a sigma. Just wish they were around in 09...

Oh - and friend who got hold of a 150-600 - has his own shop - so we can play with his 'preorder' 8-)
