Title: What 3 lenses do you dream of and long to own?
Post by: revup67 on September 25, 2012, 03:29:24 AM
200mm F2 - oh so sharp, portrait heaven

600mm F4 IS USM II - I know I'll never own this in my lifetime @ 13k but it would be incredible I'm sure for wildlife (came close with a 400mm 5.6 and a 7D = 640 :)

TS-E 17mm - the bokeh on this lens is fantastic, presently don't own a TS-E lens but would make this a first.

Any one of the big whites really, 300 2.8, 400 2.8, 500 F4- not fussed which!
    Tilt shift  17 or 24
 Canon ultrawide lens for landscapes similar to Nikon 14-24

 Sadly I don't think I'll ever be able to justify the cash for one of the superteles but there's always renting!  :)

400mm f2.8L IS Mark II, 500mm f4L IS Mark II and 600mm f4L IS Mark II.

Just look at the attached sample picture and you will understand my longing. Currently I consider myself severely focal length limited (max focal length of 200mm, not counting my 2x converter), so birding is a somewhat restricted area for me.

TS-E 17mm L
MP-E 65mm
200 f/2 L

This year, I was able to acquire my first dream lens: the 85mm f/1.2 L. But as with so many people who can afford such lenses, I find myself lacking the time to use it enough because I'm always working. It's a vicious circle.

Even if I had the money for a 200mm f/2 L, I don't think I would get one because I'd be paranoid about damaging it. I wouldn't be able to relax while I used it. It's just too precious. Hell, I'm already paranoid with my 85mm f/1.2 L.

If u had the money for a 200mm f/2 youd also have the money for getting it repaired. Plus the lens is built very sturdy :D

Well, I had the money for an 85mm f/1.2, but I still worry about scratching that rear element.

Honestly, I don't even want to be so filthy rich that I don't worry about thousand dollar scratches. It's a lot of money for a lens, and I will always respect that. Plus, the 200mm f/2.8 or the 70-200mm f/2.8 are sufficiently amazing to suit my needs.

But, yes, it's still an enticing lens to dream about. ;-)

Tough one.  As I don't have a lot of gear...

Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS II (simple one, but when I use it at other places its a hell of a dream)
24-70 II (I'm getting one soon.. so a 14mm f/2.8L would suffice)
Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L 

Mine's a pretty basic one.  If I got enough jobs I could easily achieve that.

These are too expensive but nice to have...
Canon 200-400mm F4L 1.4TC
EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM

Thinking of the Samyang 14 mm as it is much more sensible, budget wise.

To get a wide angle option on my 7D:
EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM or (more likely) Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM

We're about the same.  :) plus a UWA 16-35 II 2.8

Except that I can only probably afford the 70-200 2.8 II a year after settling for just an 85 1.8 (non L) next month.

For a crop sensor camera:
1) 15-85mm f3.5/f5.6
2) 50mm f1.4
3) 70-200mm f4 IS

For a full frame camera:
1) 24-70mm f2.8L II USM
2) 70-300mm f4-5.6 L IS USM
3) 85mm f1.2L USM II

If allowed a 4th lens I'd have the TS-E 17mm f4L lens, but even the 3 quoted above are a stretch at the moment!

24 TS-E, I can't decide which

Now of course there are a bunch more, but I guess if someone said "go into the camera shop, come out with 3 lenses, they're free", I'd have to pick these 3.

Neuro - wow.  1/3 the way there on the 600mm..let us know when your dream machine lens comes in.  Can't wait to see the pics

AmbientLight - though a bit slow, don't let that 400mm L 5.6 stop you from getting a razor sharp lens.  Affordable and it does the job quite well.  Highly recommended.

I would probably go for the new canon 600mm f4 II, 200-400 if it ever comes out and as a final fantasy the sigma 200-500 f2.8 if I didn't need to think about money.  In real life I would still like to pick up the canon 500 f4 version 1 .
Title: Re: What 3 lenses do you dream of and long to own?
Post by: Dwee8le on September 28, 2012, 01:43:54 PM
1) one if the 70-200mm, probably with IS
2) a good 30 to 35mm prime
3) a good 85mm if I am still on a crop sensor or otherwise the 135mm f/2 for a FF sensor

Trying to keep my wishes within reachable distance  ;D

A 500/4L IS II and two that Canon doesn't make; 100-300/4L IS and a 20/2.8 TSE.  I'd take a redesign of the 20/2.8 if Canon would upgrade it to an L but the TSE would be nice to have...

If its only three lenses, then the choices are pretty easy:

EF 800mm f/5.6 L IS
EF 600mm f/4 L II IS
EF 300mm f/2.8 L II IS

The birders trio. :) If Canon ever releases a 14-24 f/2.8 L, that might throw a wrench in the mix. I already own the 16-35mm f/2.8 L II, but that extra ultra wide angle 14mm focal length is just so appealing. You can do a lot with that kind of scene breadth and a FF camera. However...since it doesn't actually exist...the above three stand.  8)

What's your take on the suggestion, which seems to be backed up by TDP's ISO 12233 crops, that the 600 II with 1.4x III, which is 840mm f/5.6, is optically at least as good as the 800mm f/5.6?  The 600+1.4 would also be much lighter.

Hmm. I hadn't read TDP's review of the lens yet. I'll have to check it out. I guess I'm a tad surprised...the 800mm lens is still one of Canon's newer lenses (from 2008 or 2009?) I would have figured it was just as optically superior as the 600 f/4 II, as the 800/5.6 was kind of the first lens in the new generation of 4-stop IS telephoto lenses. If the 600+1.4 is just as good, well sure, I'd skip the 800mm.  :D

OMG. There is a very noticable difference. The 800mm, for all its quality, looks a bit soft compared to the 600II+1.4. There does seem to be a touch more CA in the 600 combo, though...not sure if thats the lens or the TC (probably the latter). Regardless, that 600mm f/4 L II is an amazing work of optical engineering, for sure. I'll happily drop the 800mm from my list. Guess that means I can add in the hypothetical 14-24...or possibly the 200-400 (although I'd like to see that thing and hear a bit more about its IQ first.)

If the average photographer were 11 meters tall, the 600mm would probably be the most desired lens. And so it makes sense that, since we're mostly under 2 meters, a 200mm is the most desired. And even the 200mm sounds like it's heft is a bit of a limitation.

Doh! The American here (me) got his meters wrong. What I meant to say was that a 6 meter tall person would find the 600mm to be a good proportional fit.

On my desire list are:

1. EF 400 f/2.8L IS II // in combination with a 1.4x and 2.0x converter this would give more flexibility that one of the f/4 supertelephotos.
2. TS-E 17 f/4L // for me this is the most desirable u/w lens.
3. EF 100 f/2.8L IS macro // I don't do a lot of macro, but this would be a more easy to handle package than my current 180 f/3.5

24-70mm f/2.8L II
85mm f/1.2L
135mm f/2L

With a FF of course :)

The 70-200 f/2.8L IS II is also in my dreams, but I feel like there is more creative control in the 85 and 135mm lenses.

85 1.2L + 200 f/2 + 14-24 L that will definitely be a lens.  at least it better be.

Flexibility, yes. But while the 400 II with 1.4x III delivers IQ similar to the 500/4 and 600/4 MkI, the MkII versions of those lenses are much better.  If you need f/2.8, then the choice is obvious. But, if you need the reach more, I'd plan on (or wish for) the 600/4 IS II.  That lens with the 1.4x III gives 840mm f/5.6 that is optically at least as good as the 800/5.6.

I notice a lot of Wide Aperture Worship in this thread.   8)

I don't really dream of lenses that are very big and heavy.

1. I would love one of those Canon tilt-shift lenses, I have never had such a thing and the possibilities are exciting.

2. The new EF 28mm f2.8 IS is a dream standard lens for me on my 28mm sensor camera. But I will probably never get it because the practical guy inside me keeps saying "your 17-55 includes 28mm, includes f2.8, and includes IS, so what are you thinking!?!"

3. The EF 70-300mm L IS, I dream of this one A LOT because it is probably my next lens purchase!

Its truly amazing to see so many of us dreaming about the 200mm F2.  I didn't think there were that many fans of this lens esp. with the new 70-200 2.8 L IS USM II out there.

Despite a bit of griping from some folks on this lens with its variable aperture, I can't begin to tell you how razor sharp this lens is.  Sure I wish they made it an F4 straight away but nonetheless, once you own and shoot this it's hard to put down.

50mm f/1.2
600mm f/4
8mm f/2.8 fisheye (can't buy easily) 8-15mm would be the one, but I'm not sure how much I would use it.

I'll get the first one next year.  I'll get the second one if I win the lottery.
