Hoping for some winning lottery tickets here....

I have read more than once that high ISO ability takes something away from low ISO- you can't have both with current technology.

So, if Canon tuned this for low ISO, it should be great.

Hmpf....  no radio flash controller, no Wifi, no global shutter,
no multilayer RGB imager - and a downgrade in high ISO
performance as well.

Not quite what I was hoping for. Not at all.

Could start a rumor about a 1DsIV :)

Price drops and gray market deals could be nothing more than slow sale and strong dollar corrections.

Canon announcements on the 1DX  and 200-400 1.4x had big delays from announcement to availability... and a big natural disaster. So, maybe no more "announcements".

Reality is that no one outside of a handful of people know.

Buy now if you need it, sell later if the next one is mo bettah.

At some point it won't matter when the camera is obsoleted by Canon or parts are no longer available.

The 1D X could be coming to an end!!

Canon will send out a firmware update that bricks them all...

 :o  ;D

It should be a fine useable lens as long as the AF motor lasts.  Check out how Jessica Claire used her 50mm 1.0:

One of the images indicates 1/12000...

I wonder what she is using. Film camera or a 1D. Typo?

I don't think I have much need for one,  but I'd still like one too :)

Setting the DC control to the same number as the aperture is the maximum effect, as I understand it.

Setting the control to 0 results in no change, rather the lens performs as if the DC control was not used.

Lens aperture at 2 and DC control at 5.6 is a minimum effect, for example.

So... no real-world examples of a soft focus lens in use? I'm very curious.

The first 3 were done with a Nikon 105 f/2 DC and a Kenko 12mm tube on a 1DX. Last one, no tube.

I'm pretty sure they were all done at f/2 and the DC control set to rear and 2.

The VII of this lens is awesome.  :)

I had heard about the Nikon DC lens over at Fred Miranda's site in the Alt forum.

It is a great lens, and I use it on Canon.

If I had a nit to pick, it's the minimum focus distance. Close work needs an extension tube, although it is probably fine as is for portrait work.

If I can find a 135 at a great price, I'll get one.

No. No softening. It actually takes tack sharp pictures. But the bokeh (OOF areas) are the smoohtest ever - and we're not talking pixel peeping here. Its a stand out effect. And you can actually control the front/back bokeh(!).

The price you pay is 2 stops due to the the apodization filter. Plus its manual only (if that's a problem).

I have several times been extremely close to buying a SONY cam just to be able to shoot that lens. (I may still do it one day...).

Do you know about the Nikon 105mm and 135mm f/2.0 DC lenses?

They can be used on Canon cameras too.

Thanks for all your replies. :)

The lens I have are:
35mm F1.4L
50mm F1.4
135mm F2L
16-35mm F2.8L

And the photos I usually took are landscape and people, so I think the features of 6D can meet my requirement.

I don't think I'll buy 5D3 because it's quite old.  :-\

Not to overlook the obvious...

Your lenses will have a much different "look" on the 6D (full frame) compared to the view through an APS-C camera.
