He bought a T2i only a couple of weeks ago - he wasn't planning to use it so soon on an actual feature! - and he's running into a few minor problems getting the gear he wants:
- The T2i remains difficult to locate, both locally and online.
- Marshall announced a 5" monitor back at NAB which he'd love to have, but it's still not available.
- He's not too happy with the Canon lenses. He bought a 17-55mm zoom lens (not an L-lens) and wasn't too happy with how smooth it was.
- He'd like to use the Zeiss CP.2 lenses, but no one has them yet (a problem shared by Nathaniel Hansen, who had been hoping to use them on his next documentary)
Availability of the T2i remains tight. Right now, B&H is out of stock, while today Amazon says it will be in stock on July 2.
