EOS Bodies / Interview hints to future new Canon mount type
« on: September 21, 2014, 12:17:37 PM »

Maybe a new future mirrorless system that tries to find a good balance between size and iq. Quite interesting rumor. If Canon would release a new mount system, they would probably not maintain all those they have now (likely EF-M).

There appears to be no thread for this older Sigma yet. I have had this lens for over a decade and do not use it very often (certainly now that I got the 100L last year). It is quite big and heavy, but does have a nice working distance and I like the bokeh.

Its the rather big caterpillar of the Privet Hawk Moth, found in my backyard.

Lenses / 85 L vs 135 L

Hi All,

I just upgraded to a 5D3 with a couple L lenses. I now have the 16-35 2.8 L, 24-105 4 L, 70-200 2.8 L IS II, to complement a 100-400 L and a 50 1.4. When buying this set, I did quite a lot of browsing, including this forum. I'd like to expand with a prime in the 'portrait' focal length range that excells in bokeh. I would be inclined to opt for the 85 1.2, but have also read a lot of positive reactions to the 135 2.0. The 135 is about half the price of the 85, but it's 2.0 aperture appears not to be such a big step up from the 2.8 of my 70-200.

Anyone with some ideas?
