Lenses / Sell 24/1.4L II and 70-200/f4L IS for 24-70 II or not?
« on: June 03, 2013, 06:34:56 PM »
I have been using 24 mm (first the 24/2.8 and later L II) since I got my first FF camera (5D2) in 2009. I currently use 24/1.4L II (with 5D3) as my everyday prime and sometimes 40/2.8 when I want to be less conspicuous.

My third lens is the 70-200/f4LIS which I only use occasionally for portraits and wildlife (however, very limited range). Considering the fact that the new 24-70 is near-prime sharp, I rarely use apertures under 2 with the 24 (primarily landscapes) and the fact that I would not miss the 70-200 immensely (70-200 f/2.8 II next on the list) - I'm contemplating selling my two L lenses for the 24-70 mark II.

My basic goal is to have a more versatile kit, where I don't have to change the lens as soon as I need something between 24 and 70 mm. But still, with superb image quality.

I'm very interested what you guys think about this idea, would there be a noticeable drop in IQ at 24 mm and at landscape apertures? You who own both, do you find that your 24/1.4L II is obsolete with the 24-70 II?


I'm currently volunteering for a local, community-oriented conservation NGO in southern Belize, C.A. The organization is funded on a project basis and has very limited funding for buying "fancy" camera equipment such as a DSLR. Do you guys think there is any chance that Canon would be interesting in donating a basic, lets say 650D with 24/2.8 and a macro, to our organization or are we better of trying to contact resellers directly? The camera will be used by our rangers to take pictures of plants they find the the nature reserve they manage and by our volunteer botanist.

Landscape / Feedback on portfolio
« on: July 11, 2012, 09:58:31 PM »
Hey guys, I was looking for a more general forum (not specialised in any category) but this will do since many of my images are landscape.

Anyway, I am putting together a portfolio (using wookmark+lightbox2) where I will put my best pictures, not necessarily to market myself but rather as a more permanent place than Flickr. I have already removed about half of the pictures I initially put up after some initial feedback. I guess you will have more ideas on pictures to remove, either because not really good (something I want you to tell me) or simply doesn't fit in a portfolio.

I have avoided cats and dogs which I understand is very important.

Thanks for any comments/suggestions!

EDIT: Most pictures are taken with 5D2/5D3+24/1.4L II+70-200f/4L IS, a few with Fuji X100

Lenses / Which L lens will be the first mark III?
« on: July 09, 2012, 10:44:25 AM »
Just something that hit me while reading the last post about 24-70 IS.

Correct me if I am wrong, but the most updated current L lenses are mark II, right? I am just counting lenses that has a "II" in its name, not stabilized/non-stabilized lenses.

Which of the current L mark II lenses do you think will be the first to be updated and receiving the mark III designation. There is one S___ty EF-S kitlens currently in mark III?

My bet would be 85/1.2L III.
