I don't know what the deal is with the 50l but it seems to be the worst on test charts/best in real life shooting lens there is? I wouldn't be so quick to get rid of it.

Yes, I have seen moire with my 5DIII + 300 f/2.8 II IS combination a handful of times. Not enough to freak out and DxO's moire tool seemed to work well on it, but I'm in a wait & see mode on this one. It could be a much bigger issue with this body. Besides, after seeing the price drops on the 7DII, it doesn't seem to make much sense to be an early adopter for bodies these days...The 7d2 uses a stronger AA filter than the 5diii and the 5diii is stronger than the 1dx. The 7d2 really takes a hit with its AA filter. I would suspect that a 50mp sensors body will have yet an even stronger AA filter. The result of that would definately limit the usefulness of a cropped image.
I'll see if I can find an example - I know one was a great blue heron, but will have to do some digging and pull up the RAW file to show you guys.
Seems the designers are assuming that you will always take an image that uses the entire sensor frame, where the softening of the AA effects are less noticeable. I can't wait to see the unadulterated side by side comparisons of AA filter softness in all of the latest bodies.
Time will tell whether the R version will be remotely useful without a lot of post process moire filtering.
My response is completely based on an apples to apples comparison...same photographer, same glass,
same generation camera body, same post processing, same everything excepting...difference in MP.
If you take that 50 MP image and, for whatever reason, downsize it to a 22 MP size...you will have a
better IQ image than you would have had taking that same image with a 22 MP body.
Note that I did not use the term crop, but said...downsize.
i wouldn't say that if i did not compare them myself. i did that on a 70d and found the sigma to be significantly better. not just pixel peeping but it was noticeable at full size. in fact the sigma on a 70d is comparable to the the canon on a 5diii, and the sigma is f/1.8 which is really important on a crop body.
You may want to refer instead to Roger Cicala's tests. They are more credible since he's using more samples than anyone can afford.
Has anyone tried this 16-35 f4 IS lens on an apsc camera? If so, how good is it on apsc? I've looked at image tested done by "the digital picture .com" where they did the lens image quality test using the 7d Mark ii and the images looked pretty damn good at all focal lengths tested. I know many will say consider the 17-55 for apsc, but I plan on moving to full frame in the summer and I want a lens in the range of 16-35 that I can use on both full frame and apsc. And I want to avoid the whole buy and sell thing as much as possible, as I have been very unsuccessful at every selling a lens. Please help as I am seriously considering buying this lens when my Canon rebate come in.
Thanks for that info, Ill have to rent a copy and check this out, I also like the TSE 17mm for keeping lines straight in buildings and for the shifting, do you guys think that is a good thing? Ill have to rent them both and see which one is for me.
Working as professional artist my entire life. In the niche and the region that I am active, relatively accomplished and respected.
I am amazed that majority of professions here are representing group of population using predominantly left side of the brain, and apparently pretty secure financially as well.
That probably explains why CR discussions in general seem to be detached with reality of the true market out there
Honestly, I was expecting more of an artists, poets, writers or musician to be in to photography than pilots, engineers, physicists or economists
Now it is clear to me why we don't have here enough posts (in my humble opinion) that are able to voice large group of users that beside the logic also follow intuition, gut feelings, emotions, or trends based on whatever (mode, looks, cool factor or social demands)
As a note I like to point out that most accomplished leaders in technology were/are people claiming to listen to intuition and gut feelings beside numbers, formulas and statistics, just like Tim Cook stated only couple of weeks a go
I would have to be surprised of you being surprised, and for a few reasons:
1- Photography is an expensive and technical 'art form'.
2- Liberal professionals are surely more likely to state their jobs and say that they enjoy photo as a hobby than people working at the grocery store as they have less chance of feeling shy about their work. (No offence meant to store clerks as there are no bad jobs), I'm sure everyone gets the point...
3- Engineers like to say they are engineers (by the way, did you know I'm an engineer?).
4- The amount of creativity required in scientific, academic and technical careers is much higher than is usually believed, although the expression of that creativity is different than than of those perceived as artistic.
5- CR is about photographic equipment.
6- I see a lot of very emotive posts about DR, crop vs ff, color spaces and evf vs off!
And so on.
However, I'm curious about you 'working as a professional artist'. I thought being an artist was a condition you were born with, not a form of employment... Ok, that's a bad joke of my part I guess...
