Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Review: Zeiss Otus 85mm f/1.4 Apo Planar T*
« on: December 13, 2014, 08:15:29 AM »
I was on a presentation about the new Zeiss and I can say that this lens is not from my league.

Here is one picture with Otus 85 1.4 on EOS-M :D (1920x1280):

I am actually interested in seeing how the Olympus 300mm f4 performs when it starts shipping next year.  This combined with the recently announced 1.4tc could be a nice light birding solution with an 840mm FOV.

I'm thinking about the same too...
Waiting for the release and hopefully one for me to test it :)

I had Olympus E-M1 + 40-150 2.8 for a test one weekend and I can say that I'm very impressed by this lens. It feels very well on E-M1, have very useful range and fast AF(even with the new 1.4 TC). Oh, the optic quality? It's fantastic! The only problem could be that the lens is so sharp and flawless that don't make dreamy bokeh.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 70d center focus point -bug- problem
« on: December 09, 2014, 03:41:43 AM »
An update on this issue with my 70D.

Canon repaired the problem without saying what was wrong. I still have inconsistency sometimes when I shoot something with focus near to infinity (landscapes with different lenses).
I'm getting tired to use live view on every landscape photo. I'll probably end up with migration to Samsung/Olympus system next year...

There are other reports for the Continuous AF saying that it's not a keeper. Moving car in your direction is NOT ultimate AF test.
No charger for camera at that price is ridiculous. I was exited about NX1, but now I'm not that much.

Canon EF-S and EF-M Lenses / Re: EF-M 55-200mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM

dcm,

Thank you for the images from the mountains. It's not that good for me, I'm still waiting for some great small prime like 135 2.8.

EOS-M / Re: Rokinon 12/2.0 or 11-22mm zoom?
« on: November 02, 2014, 04:49:22 AM »
11-22 is much better for shot 'n run - you have IS, autofocus, 11 and 12mm on F4 and zoom if needed.

12 2.0 is better for artistic wide shooting (no AF) and stars.

Yes, but he is trying to convince the audience that things like WiFi are dedicated to mirrorless and Sony.

Hello, I have WiFi in my 70D, better servo focus and much better ergonomics with lenses bigger than a coffee mug.

And the state that A6000 is so cheap... Why didn't he said anything about the lenses like 10-18 F4 for 850$?
The only few good reasonable priced Sony primes for crop are between 20 and 50mm(16 2.8 is NOT good for me).

P.S. I want interchangeable system for ultra-wide, very fast primes and good telephotos. Otherwise RX100 is totally enough.

Yeah right... I love people who shoot within the range 24 - 85mm to tell me how camera with NO dedicated small, reasonably bright primes over 55mm is great for all.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Whats wrong with the 70 D ?
« on: October 28, 2014, 09:07:42 AM »
Focus issues with central focus point.

Canon deny about this problem, but serviced mine and now it's better. My old 60D focus was more reliable...

I'm sorry, I don't understand your point.  If Canon serviced your camera, which apparently had an AF problem, how could they be denying that it had an AF problem?

The CPS Europe said that they don't know about the common issue with central focus point on 70D. Then I sent the camera to my local service.

So... I'm not happy when even Canon "Professional" Services are hiding something like that. We have to believe that they don't have internet and thousands of returned 70D bodies for focus fixing...

Lenses / Re: 70-200 2.8 II or 100 2.8L and 135 2 and 200 2.8
« on: October 17, 2014, 09:28:11 AM »
Depends on your type of shooting...

I have a friend with 7D 100L and 70-200 2.8L IS II. He is enjoying the macro and he is using it much more than the 70-200.
If you are shooting macro you can also check Sigma 105 2.8 OS macro (I'm very happy with it and even have some advantages over 100L) and Tamron 90 2.8 VC macro. I had 200 2.8L and I liked it, but I needed longer lens for birds.

IMO 70-200 2.8 is too heavy and does not have good range on crop. Very cheap and light option which you can give a try is old Sigma 50-150 2.8.

Am I the only one who look at the last shadow from the picture... This shadow don't look like the shape of the RX10/FZ1000
