Very nice! I have a twin light and am thinking of adding an MP-E 65! (I shoot with a 100L)

I loved my Zeiss lenses, until Presbyopia took over, now MF totally sucks (I mostly mourn the Lensbaby use) good thing I now have all bitchin' Canon AF glass and a 5D3.

Canon never do giant leaps. They do things in a proper order. The sensible thing to do is to release a high resolution camera for studio and landscape work, where the number of changed components can be controlled. A 5DIV, with no AF gamble, no memory card gamble, no new computing platform, no new internal bus architecture etc. makes perfect sense. Personally I would prefer a 1DsIV or 1DX-II (you choose), but I suspect I will have to wait. But with my newborn addiction to manual focus Zeiss lenses, that may be what I should be waiting for ...

So my earlier comment about studio and landscape, which was ridiculed, is now commonly accepted?

Oh wait, it was only ridiculed by Dilbert who actually has less Forum cache than I do.

I've had the Mark 1 and would rather, in hindsight have had other lenses or combination of primes. I NOW have the Mark 2 and NOTHING else comes close. A stunner.

There is also a 'Photographer Buddy wanted' ad that circulates on CL which is a HUGE red flag for theft.

Unless you're just lonely.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: I'm getting impatient for the new 5D 4.

I am very thankful I was born early enough and engaged in photography in the film era so I wouldn't have ever jumped into this market with so many overwhelming choices! I do not mean that in a sarcastic or demeaning way, I am truly honest here. When digital did come about my body purchases were complete level ups.   300D>T2i>7D>5D3.

Each of these moves came as I grew with my system and desired challenges and outcomes my previous bodies didn't allow. They also came at the advent of each next level of technological advancement. I moved with the times. But to come into the DSLR world fresh these days, wielding enough cash to step up to the highest model without a foundation in shooting must be both exciting and daunting.

Buy what you want!

Enjoy, but there's a couple caveats here...unless you have an eye for the craft, the passion and a creative soul-the gear no matter how much you spend won't make your photographs any better without it.

Plus, the better model you purchase, the more convoluted the menus and features, so RTFM!

Landscape AND Studio body?

It would have the same pixel density as the 7D2/70D and thus places the same requirements on holding the camera still, lens quality in the centre, etc.

Are those two cameras landscape/studio bodies?

Your first post has conjecture, your second and reply to my query is a statement. All in all neither of your comments have merit.

My post refers to areas of photography which require great detail. Also a studio body is something Canon has not produced since 2007.

It's a tease, a nice one however. And it's a gateway drug to Gold level which is worth every penny.

Tis the season

... to call people trolls for desiring anything other than the products Canon currently makes.

Now you went and took my completely harmless post and added a negative connotation. Hardly the spirit there my friend.

Tis the season for eggnog?  <- better?

Cheers! (better be a little something extra in it)

Lenses / Re: Review: Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Pancake
« on: December 15, 2014, 06:10:37 PM »
I don't get the whole pancake lens thing. There so small on a dslr.  Taking shots with them feels weird to me trying to use good form. To me why not just use a 24mm, 35mm or 50mm prime. I may be in the minority but there just not cup of tea

My main kit has all that you mention what with balance and weight and ergonomics. But when I want to be able to take an alternative image of the same scene, it's nice to whip out the SL1 with a pancake or Sweet 35 and not to have taken up too much space in my bag or change lenses. YMMV but the SL1 and the pancakes have really opened up opportunities and convenience for me. And to boot the preform incredible well!

I'm glad it works for you and I like that there so compact. I've heard they preform very good which is awsome. For me I have really big hands and after shooting with a 5d3 or 7d and a 70-200 or 400mm it just feels ackward to me. I'm glad a lot of people like them. Maybe I need to spend more time with one.

I have pretty large hand as well, one of the reasons, besides no OVF that I didn't like the balance and ergonomics of the M system. But for some reason the SL1 plays by different rules for me, perhaps it's the familiarity of the common dslr layout and the fact it doesn't need an adapter. I also like to wear it with a BR Cross Shot strap and I am not as concerned about it as I would a $5k body and lens combo at my side. I find I can get a bit more adventurous  with the little combo.I just use it with less fingers, akin to pinky out with the cup of tea...not that I drink tea like that ;)
