I love this lens! Very pricey though!

Canon is doing a classic rope-a-dope. The champ lets the challenger wear himself out, then he throws a knockout punch.
The steamroller of miniaturization will prevail, and mirrorless will be the near-term future.
My prediction is the current DSLR dies with the 2020 Olympics. Mirrorless will be the dominant camera technology at that event. After that, game over.
But in general, I see no reason to go OCD nuts on how you clean lenses. They don't get THAT dirty anyway and I use mine is all kinds of environments. The worst issues are usually finger smudges with dirty fingers that contain oils.+1, some people go way overboard on this stuff.
I just clean the front surface of the filter that is on my lens pretty much all the time.I agree...I use only the best filters, though.I am a fan of Lenspen and similar products even for my expensive multi coated filters.
Beautiful Lens, someone should jump on this!I would think? The lens is like new! No bites yet...but it's not a lens for most....it's so special....
Serious question: Have you had any bad experiences taking pictures of people working? I imagine that some workers might object.I have never had a problem photographing people.... you ask first If they say yes, go for it!, if they say no, just say thanks and move on....
I always like to ask first. I know that I don't like it when people take my picture with out letting me know, so I assume other people may not like it too.
Of course these days, if you take a picture of a person you are automatically a stalker/creep and if you take a picture of a building/structure you are a terrorist. (facepalm)
That's actually a kid (goat) Anil.
How about a mirrorless full frame camera stuck in an AE1 type body? No autofocus, full manual controls and good
battery life. Oh, wait - that's a Fuji XT1 in manual mode.
But the XT1 doesn't meet your criteria ... it's not full frame.
B+w on all my lenses. The difference between is negligible and if your shooting a strong enough back light to get flare off the UV filter, your probably already getting flare from the lens anyway.
However being able to wipe off my lens with a shirt, drop them in and out of bags with no lens cap, grab and touch them anyway I want, avoiding dirt and dust on the front element, and potentially protect against a stray object finding your front element out weigh any nearly invisible difference in IQ. Plus when you resell, the front element looks absolutely perfect.
The times where the filter comes off is when using my LEE system or a polarizer on UW lenses.
As usual Roger over at lensrentals.com did it:
Only a small handful of users have asked to try out the buy and sell forum, at this point, I'm wondering if the effort already expended was time wasted.I have had a lot of lookers, but no questions and no buyers. I think my item is priced right for what it is. I have it listed on eBay, too (for sale, not auction), so I am not sweating it and in no real hurry to sell. The lens is definitely high-end specialty item...so I have to find just the right buyer who wants to save some money.
Has anyone sold anything or received questions?
I sure miss seeing your work, Bob!!
