Surprisingly good bokeh for 70-200 f4L is on the 6D, wide open at f4. Can't wait to try out my new 135L for portraits!

both mavericks and LR5 (from LR4) were painless upgrades for me. LR5 seems snappier than LR4, but still not as snappy as LR3.
content aware spot treatment brush is now better. Plus the radial filters are quite nice.
Actually that is quite a help as it means I can concentrate on the E2 grip. Both of these choices were used, and eliminating the E2N will save 1/3 of the cost, the BG-E2 is up for £20, the BG-E2N is up for £30!!
If someone with an E2 non N could confirm it does (or doesn't) have a BBF that would be a great help.
How do you link a picture from Smugmug into this post and being able to see the picture.
I am new to this posting stuff.
I got my EOS 6D with 24-105mm f/4L IS earlier in June for a great price. I only paid $2,039 for it, brand new from a Canon Authorized dealer, plus $50 store coupon for next purchase that I used later on for the other stuff. So $2699 is no where near a deal to me.
I've bought used lenses from forum members on Photography On The Net and Fred Miranda. Sellers provide condition and pictures of the item. They all have feedbacks as well. If you're afraid, go with the route that neuro has suggested but don't expect to get a deal.
I got butterfly too, unfortunately the bokeh wasn't that good:
Here is is:
Beautiful image, Dustin. I'd say it has all the qualities of a masterpiece.
+1 Awesome. Well done Dustin.
I save my conversions at 72dpi, 1024 long edge and 10 quality. For printing you will want to save at full size, 10 quality and whatever dpi your printer needs.
Yes the post was meant to be half serious, half sarcasm. I think we need to try to recruit the FakeChuckWestfall to participate in the forum, though, so we can find out what's really going on at Canon USA
I have and had a few from all the usual suspects. By far, the most comfortable and convenient is the ThinkTank Retrospective series. This might be the most comfortable shoulder strap of any. I carried a 5diii, 24-105, 17-40, 40mm Pancake, Cards, 4 batteries, a real paper notebook, a Kindle and odds and ends in a Retrospective 7 and could have placed my 70-200 in the remaining open "slot" if I wanted. I carried this for almost a month in Central Asia in the heat and it worked really well for me.
CA is actually extremely low with this lens. I assume you're talking about Longitudinal Chromatic Aberrations (LoCA) which gives you purple/green fringing on chrome edges and white edges. The 1.2 isn't a whole lot better in tests wide open, but should have less when stopped down to 1.8. I agree that's annoying, but with Lightroom 3+ one quick click makes it go away with no apparent effect on IQ so it doesn't bother me at all.
One of Canon's best values in $$ per IQ in my experience.
Yes. LoCA, the purple and green fringing. One quick click multiplied by 500 or more wedding images can get really time consuming and annoying. It just meant extra work. I was using LR 3 at the time so maybe it would be easier now??
