Have the 1.4. Rarely used it. Then the 1.2. there has to be a reason not to use it to be removed from camera.  Its just simply special.

Bring your camera and lenses. Point it at your model and push that little shutter button. Boom outdoor portrait!

Nice shots.  The WB seems a bit off in some though.  Lots of blue and pinky colored wedding dress. Maybe that's what you wanted I don't know.

if sharpness is what you're after then the new 24 - 70 would be the best way to go and you could get there by selling one of your L primes plus the money you plan to spend already. that lens is awesome across the board and could easily replace one of the fast primes in your kit.  Otherwise I don't see a canon AF lens matching up to that nikon...

Yes the new 24-70 is worth it. And No you will not need or use the 24-105. I sold minewithin days of receiving the new lens....and I loved the 24-105.  It is simply just awesome!

For street photography these lenses are too wide for a very shallow dof. Try using a fast, long zoom...

What?! Why?!  Id hold out for the macro, tilt shift, fisheye f1.2 lens comming out soon. Then youd have a very useful wedding lens...

Bring a waterproof point and shoot and enjoy the time with family.  I carried around one body and lens and would never do it again. Theres just not that much to shoot that a nice point and shoot cant handle...and the hassle with the rides and the heat made it unenjoyable to have a dslr with.  Seaworld on the other hand was great with a dslr....

Lenses / Re: Making the most out of a 50 1.2?
« on: January 22, 2013, 12:02:05 AM »
Just recieved mine last friday. Took about 3 shots to fall in love with it. Shot a wedding on sat. Wanted to use it a lot but was worried about the focus I was getting  at 1.2. And I have glass to use for 50mm so inbetween locations I did some test shots and  manually adjusted the amfa by using the compare screen on the 5d3. At full zoom I decided -6 looked best. After that and a few test shot I felt comfortable using itfor the rest of the night . I did take 3 shots each time at 1.2 to maximise the turnout potential.  Sure many of them were soft but the ones that locked on look fabulous. I haven't taken it off since. The balance on a gripped 5d3 is perfect. I agree the shapness is not there esp compared to the new mk2 zooms but the look of the pictures is unlike any lens I have. The 1.4, to me had no special qualities. The 50L is just bada$$. But now im sure ill wake up in a day or 2 to see the announcement of the mk2....

Tough to pan smoothly handheld. But for starters, at 25fps you should be shooting at 1/50 shutter speed.

Lenses / Re: EF 24-70 F/2.8L II USM on 7D
« on: December 11, 2012, 10:34:38 AM »
If money is no object, then the 24-70 II is as good as it gets in that range. However if speed isnt a concern, for a third of the price a 24-105 can be had. Will be the same quality iq or better as your 10-22.  I had the 17-55 on a 7d but after a few months, while it had no effect on the pictures, i could not keep a lens that cost that much which fills with dust. i then went with the 24-105 which i used the majority of the time. With the leftover money you could sell your 7d and get a 5d3. About the same end price....but ultimately yes the 24-70 II will not disappoint, on any camera body!
