Thanks All for the suggestions. I agree it needed some warming. As pointed out by sagittariansrock, it was not easy to find the right balance between the right color temp for the skin tones and the flowers.

In the below edit, I increased the color temp from ~7700K to ~12000K and reduced the saturation of the red, yellow and orange by ~20. Do you think this is better?

I feel they lack a bit of a punch. If anyone of you is better at raw processing then me, feel free to have a go at the raws (IMG_6376.CR2 / IMG_6381.CR2), I would very much appreciate if you could send the the resulting xmp files.

The market for a 400 f/4 would be very small if it would not be considerably cheaper than the 300 f/2.8 II, taking into account how well the 300 takes TC's.

Maybe  this whole rumor is just a  distractive move and Photokina will bring some higher anticipated products... I hope so  ???

On the other hand, if these will be the announcements, my wallet will be happy  ::)

A great lens indeed. I liked the 10-22 on crop better then I like the 16-35 2.8 II on FF.

Here an oldie (2007) taken from a driving car in the Serengeti. EOS 30D, EF-S 10-22 @12mm, ISO 200, 1/640, f/9

And another oldie (2010) from Yellowstone (I believe it was Mammoth Hot Springs). EOS 30D, EF-S 10-22 @10mm, ISO 100, 1/250, f/8

2 very old ones (2006) of moss flowers taken with the Sigma 180mm

Both on a EOS 10D body, 1/90, f/3.5, tripod

Yellowstone is indeed a stunning place. Every photographer should see it at least once in their lives.

The grandprismatic is very special, but so big that it is difficult to appreciate the full beauty from closeby. Some of the smaller pools in Yellowstone are easier to comprehend.

Lenses / Re: Would you buy the 35L now, or wait?
« on: August 25, 2014, 05:16:25 PM »
I would not buy it. I am in the market for a 35mm as well and will probably go for the f/2 IS. Main reasons to choose this over the 1.4L or the Sigma is size, second is price. My main use will be for street photography.

Main down for me of the f/2 IS is the lack of weather sealing. The slower f-stop does not bother me too much. I like the bokeh of the f/2 IS more than that of the 1.4's even though there is less oof blur. For street work, the IS comes in handy when shooting in the evening as you can do more handheld.

What will be the main use for the 35 you are after?
