Also, I understand that one thing that's pretty hard to miss is that it polarizes the sky unevenly. Is this too conspicuous that IQ is compromised?!


Most wide-angle lenses w/circular polarizer will do this, if I understand right. See: http://havecamerawilltravel.com/photographer/polarizing-filter-wideangle-lens
Has to do with physics and the angle of the sun vs. camera.

Slight change of country: F/A18C's of the Swiss Airforce at the Axalp demo(and this one you have to climb to 7,000-feet for):





Such an incredible shot!  :D  8)

Lenses / Re: Just bought a 70-200 f/2.8L IS II - A Few Questions

:)

One more question. Could someone please check on his 70-200 II lens, if he also notice a bit of movement on focus ring (up/down, left/right). On mine, there is bit of play before the focus ring really grabs. Because if I compare it to the zoom ring, that one is solid with no play in any direction. Thanks

None here

A new-and-improved 100-400?

This lens is loooong overdue and would likely sell like hotcakes, as did the current version.  I was recently looking at Nikon and they have a new improved version of their 80-400 and the reviews are off-the-charts positive.  The improved Canon would need zoom ring instead of push pull and preferably start at 80mm instead of 100mm to match Sigma and Nikon.

I would be very happy with a 100-400 f/4

I did a series last night using an ND64x while standing out on a (still) frozen river.  I am slowly building up filters in the 82mm and am considering whether to move some of my 77mm filters and just use a step up ring.  Anyway, this shot is the result of three bracketed exposures hand-blended using luminosity masks.

Wow, good shot!

Best landscape film is Velvia, RVP50, RVP100, RVP100F

+1

Velvia is the best landscape film for sure.

I really like Ilford Delta Pro 100 a lot too. Finest monochrome film out there.

I'm about equal using both. Although the shots taken with the 24-105L I have seems to lack the 'feel' of those shot with my primes.

I must be old fashioned, I still prefer Ilford Delta 100 & my 50 f/1.4 & 100 f/2 primes.

This sounds like enough of an upgrade for me to get one. I'm excited to see what happens.

I currently have a T3i with the kit lens, a Canon 50mm f/1.4, Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM II Macro Zoom Lens and a Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC OS HSM that I'm selling.  I will be buying the Canon 6D with the 24-105 f/4L  In your opinion will I be able to get low light shots with the  24-105 f/4L on the 6D, as I have with the Sigma f/2.8 on my T3i?

I bought the 6D with the 24-105L, fantastic kit! Works quite well in low light, I've been able to get some great shots.
