Lenses / Can the 70-200 2.8L II IS replace my 100L and 135L?
« on: May 10, 2013, 09:51:16 AM »
Hello there,

having that thought in the back of my mind through the last days... That 70-200 2.8 II IS. We got Cashback from Canon at the moment (300€ for that lens, which is quite a chunk) and I've been thinking about this monster. I put very much emphasis on sharpness and I am satisfied with the performance of my Sigma 35 1.4, the 100L and the 135L. I feel there is something missing between 35 and 100, 50mm is too close to 35 and 85 too close to 100 so I would've wanted something 70-ish.

I don't shoot macros that much anymore and only use the 100L in bad weather conditions or if there is not enough space to use the 135L. The latter I only use from tripods for portrait work, because of its lack of stabilization and I quite don't like that it is not sealed.

The 70-200 2.8L II IS now could provide me with that 70 focal length I miss plus it would probably outperform the 100L, which I could get rid off then. I am not so sure about the 135L though. I really love this lens, but can't really say how big the difference between it and the 70-200 2.8L is. My pouch would probably stomach keeping both, but I find myself thinking if the 135L would become unnecessary.

Any thoughts on this?

EOS Bodies / 5D3 lens correction profiles - only jpg?
« on: November 14, 2012, 10:16:56 AM »
Hello thar!

I did not use the lens correction built into the camera for now, but I have a question. Does it only apply to pics shot in jpg or also in RAW? I know that you can edit Raws directly on the camera regarding vignetting n stuff, could I also use the profiles of the lens correction for that or is it done manually?

Or in other words, does the lens correction do ANYTHING if i only shoot in raw?

Portrait / My 5D Mark III portraits
« on: October 23, 2012, 11:57:43 AM »
A selection of my best portraits since I own my 5D Mark III, which is for a little over three months now. Owned a 500D/Rebel T2i before, the difference is vast, I believe I don't need to tell you. You can find others on my website or on facebook, if you got that.

Here we got some taken with the 100mm 2.8L:

Before that I owned the 100mm 2.8 non-L, also great for portraits.

The 70-200 4.0 non-L also makes a nice portrait lens, if space is available.

And these ones were taken with the Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC

I love that thing.
