In the old days, manual focus lenses had DOF markings for different apertures, nice and useful.
In the olden days, some Canon bodies even had a helper mode "adepth" for this - af at spot one, af at spot two & it calculates the required f-stop... alas, newer cameras have you-dont-wanna-know how many creative zone programs, but this has been lost along the way.
Booyah Yahoo Yippee Hooray Awesome FINALLY ABOUT TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
God I've wanted a sharp wide-open, auto-focusing 50mm 1.4 that isn't over $1k for sooo long.
OK, I managed to mug a homeless man sleeping in a dumpster and removed from his person a scratched up Windows XP installation disk. Knowing that I must have been close, I searched his adjacent shopping cart and found an ancient piece of crap Windows XP thinkpad hidden under some flea-infested blankets and a tattered copy of Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand that he seems to have used as toilet paper. I then tried to leave him a license for six months of Adobe Creative Cloud in recompense, but he looked more insulted than he did after I mugged him.
Updater ran just fine on it.
Is there anything in particular that anyone would like me to try out with it? I have a 5D3 and a 600EX-RT.
Those numbers are for each of my three lights fired in ETTL at a piece of paper on the wall, with white balance drawn from the white panel on my WhiBal card using the tool in LR5; I should have specified. If you want I can try each of them at different power settings.
I shot my WhiBal card and got 5850, 5900 and 6100; That was each light on well-charged AAs and the same setup. 6300 seems a little high but as long as it is consistent then I don't think it is worth much trouble.
Pardon my innocence, but is the 5% difference not academic?
