Software & Accessories / Re: DxO OpticsPro 10 released
« on: Today at 02:11:36 AM »

Few months back, I almost buy v9 for high ISO purpose. Thanks to Neuro. He suggested to wait for v10 - faster PP in prime + others...

I just bought v10 ELITE package. Can't wait to use it in up coming halloween photos(12000-25000ISO)

This is my 1st time playing with DxO. Here is 25000ISO taken with 1dx. Export took quite a bit of time, good 2-3mins per photo. Might take me some times to get use to new software.

Little bit of Tone + texture

Just had a very quick play with 10. Feels snappier than 9 for sure. I guess I'm in for at least this upgrade cycle.

+1 especially prime. viewpoint 1 is also better than the options available in 9, more accurate. Also the selective Tone seems to have a lot more latitude will have to test that more though,  and the final benefit I can perspective correct big stitches now.

EOS Bodies / Re: Patent: Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II

Hi Neuro,
What are the weak points in current 35L? I would like to add fast 35mm in near future.

Thanks
Dylan
Me too, I have never tried that focal length for photo before. I rented the Canon version past week-end and I was very surprised how much I loved what I saw.
As someone stated, the only thing I found weak was the dull color. I had to boost it in post.
I am tempted to rent the Sigma version and see which one I like more. I am not in the plan of buying the II but I wouldn't mind a second hand current version, for a lesser price. It is good enough for my need.

Although many claimed 35mm Art got some AF issue. I did play with this lens at local camera store. AF didn't seem to have problem. I was shooting from wide open up to f4. I'm not sure if that was a GOLDEN demo.

Color me excited!!

Dylan: weak points of the 35 L is ca wide open, no weather sealing. It has low contrast and a bit dull colors.

Strong points is sharpness wide open, AF, AF and AF. Small light and very nice bokeh. I LOVE that lens, but when I think about what the 2470 mkII has done to improve the mk1, a 35 L II makes me overly excited!
Thanks Viggo for the info.

I don't think that was a stupid question at all.  We got some good answers that educated some of our readers.  I am sure that others besides you had wondered about this.

We need more posts like this.

Here's the correct link to the patent (the patent link above points to a 55-250mm patent).

The patent shows 10 elements in 8 groups, compared to the current 35/1.4L which has 11 elements in 9 groups. 

I like my 35L, and I'd probably preorder a 35L II if/when one comes along.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: %D Mark III instead of 7D Mark II

Kinda hard to give up that 35mm sensor  :)

A quick answer is YES. This could be Canon best UWA zoom ever. Here are some photos taken with 16-35 f4 IS:

There are some with 70-200, but all wide shots were taken with f4 IS. Be able to shoot f22ish handheld at slower shutter is very helpful. IS is super on 1/10 or slower - handheld of course. I had 16-35 f2.8 II in the past, f4 IS is clearly a winner.

Lenses / Re: More EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II Talk [CR2]
« on: October 28, 2014, 02:28:36 PM »
Hmmmmm.  Sell the 100-400 now or wait until the new one comes out?  That is the question.  Because if this does get released and if the price is reasonable and the IQ better than the present iteration, the value of the old lens will drop.

What is the "GOLDEN" rule again?  ;)

EOS Bodies / Re: Should I buy a 1dx
« on: October 28, 2014, 09:40:47 AM »
With current rebate, I'm tempted for 2nd 1DX. Yes, the current X is that good  ;)

I'm sure X II could be better. However, this is CanonRumors site. There is no warranty X II will come anytime soon.

Yes, only if it can transform from DSLR to mirrorless at a push of a button... ::)

Otherwise, my crappy 1DX does quite in all situations ;)

I think Neuro had a similar experience ;)

Sort of...but at the start of that experience, I was the guy using the iPhone, having it explained to me by the guy with the Rebel body and 55-250 that I needed a 'real camera' to have any hope of a good picture (of course, that was before I pulled the 1D X + 70-200 II out of the bag at my feet).
