How about 3000 lumens of Samsung LED, softened, at $135?

To throw fuel on to this fire, I am considering switching camera systems from Canon to Sony.
exactly the same set up great thanks for info ! do you find you need to weight the stands down with anything when using indoors with people about at events ?
Updating the dock firmware and connecting the lens just now, I'm once again prompted to upgrade its firmware. Perhaps the lens "forgets" its firmware after a few hours. Who knows. While I am looking forward to the 50A and I do love my 35A I'm very disappointed with this dock product, it's a stinker.
this the mount http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0034WR19Y/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1#productDescription
and these are the light stands http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0011363NS/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
anyone have any experience of these or is it simply because they are cheap ?
However, this is highly skewed, because DXO uses their T-stops "measure" to determine what the "best" aperture is...and they chose f/1.2 on the 50mm as it's "best". That is about as close to the WORST aperture the 50/1.2 has...
This lens has a very special output that is extremely flattering for taking pictures of people
We've seen Canon recently bring out several new EF non-L primes with IS (24/28/35), and I expect we'll see an updated 50mm with IS soon. The IQ of those new lenses is quite good (compare the 35/2 IS to the Sigma 35/1.4 Art, for example).
Per these guys, the color in the 35mm is better, but there might be too much color for human skin... so I'm a touch confused... maybe I need to read it again.
This is fun:
Not that I plan to switch; I like the mix....
But the conclusion I've come to... is that Canon may cost more, but more often than not, it is well worth it.
Also, this was the mood I was going for. I think a hair light could have been cool, but Im happy enough with the one light for now! Ill experiment more in the future!
Wont happen. Fuji barely built up its X lens lineup, so they wont start a new one that soon.
I have a couple of mitros + and so far they are super reliable however with eneloops they recycle noticably slower than the canons
