Lenses / Re: Should I choose the 70-200 2.8 II?

I've sold mine yesterday after sleeping 6 months in my cupboard :o

Since i've got my 200mm 2.0 i never used the Zoom again  ;D

+1 for the 135mm for trevelling (and for anything else)

Lenses / Re: January in Japan...Advice?
« on: October 23, 2013, 03:49:43 AM »
I've spent two weeks in Japan this year (not in the winter-time  :'(). I think one day is enough for the monkeys. The monkey-park is not so big. The best lens for shooting them will be the 70-200mm (for me). Also i think you don't need the 85mm 1.2 and a Flash.

Here are some of mine:

But Tokyo is such a great place to be. I could have spent my two weeks only in Tokyo. In Kyoto there are a lot of temples and the Samurai-action-park  ;D.

So the only way to be creative is shoot wider than 2.8?  Hmm, interesting.

That's not the point. In the range from 24-85mm i like to shoot with apertures from 1.2/1.4 to 2.0. But that's just me. I'm not speeking for everyone else  :).

I bought the new 24-70 two times....the first time i used it and said to myself....hell this lens is boring. So i sold it. Than i bought it a second time to give it another try. What should i say...it was still boring. I mean...this Lens is sharp like a knife...but for me it has a boring look. So i sold it again. I rarly use Zoom-lenses and the 24-70 has not enough reach...so i bought the 24-105. this Lens is also boring  ;) but has a better Zoom range.

I actually understand your statement. At 2.8 it a workhorse with outstanding IQ, but limiting on creative stuff. I have the same relation to my 24-105, and have more fun lurking around with my 135/2 or 50/1.4 or my 35/1.4.

What happens if you shoot something interesting with it? Is it still boring?

The Lens ?.....yes it is  ;)

Very interesting!
Maybe every lens bores you! Or maybe just zoom lenses.

In the latter case may I suggest a therapy cocktail consisting of some of the following lenses:

14L II, 17TSE, 24TSE II, 35 1.4L, 85 1.2L II, 135L

If your boredom is still not cured I suggest a last step: a 500mm f/4L IS II.

Now if even then you feel bored then the solution is to pick ... another hobby

P.S Make sure you use the lenses twice a day (Use before or after breakfast/lunch/dinner is irrelevant)


 ;)....o.k., truth be told :"i don't like zoom lenses"...except the 16-35 and the 70-200  ;D

what specifically did you find boring about the 24-70 2?

TS lenses aside, could you suggest an exciting dslr lens to look up?

Sure...24 1.4 and the 200 2.0

Not sure I understand what makes a lens boring...  You admitted the 24-70 2.8 II is very sharp.  It has excellent bokeh and color rendition.  It's excellent mechanically.  About the only things most people don't like about it are the price and lack of IS.  What specifically don't you like about it?

The look of the Pictures....for me there is no wow-Feeling. When i look at the Pictures, that came out of my 24 1.4, my 85 1.2 or my 200 2.0, i have the wow-Feeling. I know these are Primes and on the other hand there is a Zoom-lens....maybe beside the 70-200 is II the best Zoom-Lens on the market, but i don't like it. The 70-200 is great  :)
