Lenses / Similar sized, midlength prime to the 16-35
« on: June 29, 2013, 03:29:59 PM »
So I'm wondering if anyone can recommend which prime lens would be close in length and no greater diameter than the 16-35 II. I'm looking at the 85mm 1.8, 100 2.0, and 135 2L. From the specs it looks like the 135 is closest but I'm not sure I want that much reach when shooting in the water. Anyone with the 100mm how much shorter is it really?

I don't want to buy a lens only to find out that it is too far from the port and will have focus issues.

My buddy just posted this on facebook. Not my 1DX but he just got one for the company he works with.

Any idea why they would all appear like this?

Lenses / Going to get the 24-70 2.8 II. Want a 70-200 as well
« on: January 11, 2013, 09:25:54 PM »
Have the money to get the 24-70 2.8 II to pair with my 1Dx. It seems like a no brainer to me. I'll be using for event photography, portraits and will be getting into weddings. That said I'd really like to have a 70-200 as I love that range and use it often whether for surf photography or something else. Given the ISO performance on the 1Dx do I need IS (I really don't have enough money for the 2.8 IS II but may be able to swing the ver I)? Could I even go to f4 with good results or will I be spoiled by the sharpness of the 24-70?

Anybody found a decent 3rd party battery yet? Or do they all lack communication with the camera?

Couple older shots all shot with my 30D, few water shots as well.

I shoot primarily surfing with my 1Dx. I was using a 30D and had it set up for back focus. I have the back focus custom function on the 1Dx now but would like to turn off focus with the shutter button. What function is this that I need to turn off?
