Mine were HiTech, I still have the holder and various adapters for differing lens sizes as they weren't in the pouch.

not sure who is selling hitech i NZ, other than trademe? 2filter.com worth a look

thanks, I thought the ant made a nice addition.

I wouldn't worry to much. I hadn't taken much.

I only had to walk about 5mins and I was at a local dog park where the council had planted rows of daffodils.

Yea I would still be happy with a Mk3. the 6D AF points just don't cut it.

$5999 rrp vs $3499 USD is a joke tbh.

I'll keep an eye on how the sensor performs and hope the 6dmk2 is a nice step up next year

More interested in the 16-35/2.8 mk3

Ok that made me spit out my lunch.

I think I would rather upgrade to the mk3

There is just way to much focus on gear :)

Yep, esp when it seems that I want to replace all my gear.

the 17-40 while it's a nice lens and have got some good photos with it I would like to have IS and it's the same with the Canon 100 Macro (this lens is more important to have IS than the 17-40)
the 24-105 is soft and I don't like what I am getting from it.
the tamron 35 I love and is happy with that.
the 6D doesn't have enough focus points and when doing macro I would like some more.

I am going to UK next year and would like a small camera to take. Fuji at this stage.
I am going to be getting a EOS film camera, more than likely EOS 3.

My 550ex flash is old and while it does work it doesn't have the features of modern cameras.

I don't have gas, I haven't spent any decent on cameras since getting the 6D (apart from the tamron) But I do believe that I am understanding how I see things and how to relate that to the photos I take. Hence why I got the Tamron 35 1.4

Recently I got Canon to tune the 6d and 24-105L together. While I have not used it lots, the focus now seems quicker and better. I removed the uv filter remember, to improve the softness. Even after that I still thought the LHS of my pics was softer than the RHS. A bit weird but it seems to have gone now.
