Lenses / Re: Thoughts on Having a 35 and a 50 on Crop?
« on: October 13, 2014, 12:23:55 PM »
I have the Canon 10-18, 35 2.0 IS and Sigma 50mm Art.  I'd give up some of the UW area, but would it be wrong to consider swapping out my UWA zoom and 35mm for a 16-35 f4 IS?  I'll be sticking with crop for awhile, but maybe not forever.
I like all three, but I also like simplicity and the Sigma 50 is a cut above.

Thanks.  Thought that maybe 24 and 50 were "better", but I try to keep things to a minimum and already have the EOS M/22mm.

Lenses / Thoughts on Having a 35 and a 50 on Crop?
« on: October 09, 2014, 11:34:01 AM »
     I have a crop sensor camera and really do like my 35 2.0 IS for most things.  Paired it with a 10-18 and I have most non-sports things covered.  Just got a job to photograph a large legal practice so figured that I would do well to have a 50.  The Sigma 50 1.4 Art just arrived and I've all but already welded it to my camera.  Focus is spot on and the colors/contrast/etc., well, you know.
     I view the 35 as my landscape lens, wide angle zoom for large groups/tight spaces/foreground subject and the 50 as the portrait lens and general purpose (similar to the 35).
     Does that make sense?  Any thoughts on coexisting with a 35 and 50 (or a 50 and 85 on a full frame) would be a great thing.
     Thanks.

Lenses / Re: Which L prime will be the first Canon upgrade?

Most of my typical stuff is well-handled by my 35 2.0 IS and 100 2.0 (and 10-18 EF-S).  As good as those are (very sharp with near "L" colors/contrast) I always look for an excuse to use my 200 2.8II.  Might not be within your needs, but it's it.

EOS-M / Re: More EF-M lenses in the future
« on: September 17, 2014, 02:35:24 PM »
A 50mm "M" lens would solve all of my problems.
What propblems?? 50mm is too long for general use and too short  for portrait. How does it solve your problem??
I use a 35 2.0 IS on my 70D and have and M/22.  A 50mm "M" lens would complete my package and make my EOS M a complete kit for travel.  I like 50 a lot for portraits.
And I think that would solve my GAS problem since I think I'd prefer an M/22 & 50 to the G7X or any other compact.
If you are planning to use the EOS-M for travel, 22mm may be too long for a lot of occations.18-55 zoom will be a lot more versatile and gives you a wider angle when you need it. Quite a few posts recommended the 11-22mm ($400). It has been rated very high.
22 isn't always perfect.  That's what my DSLR is for.  But for when wishing to travel light it gets a lot of it done.  Also recently got a nice carry case for my flash which is a nice touch.

Could be a replacement for my trusty M/22 (plus extra batter and Lowepro Dashpoint 20 carry case) - just saying in case anyone's interested.

Any possible distant future plans for an EF-M 50mm?

Thanks.  During that entire trip I was one with the shutter button.  I think there was a higher being a work at times with some of the shots that I got.

The only thing that sits in the closet is me.  Just kidding.  I'm not gay.

Thanks.  I'd only care about vibration reduction, but maybe there isn't really any vibration anyway (although I'm sure to do some long exposures once in awhile).

Software & Accessories / Aluminum vs. Carbon Fiber?
« on: August 14, 2014, 03:36:46 PM »
     Leaning towards one of the MeFoto tripods for general photography/no video.  If I use a cable release and shutter lock and don't care about the weight would aluminum maybe be a "better" choice?  The only advantage that I'd prefer carbon fiber for would be vibration reduction, but is that an actual advantage if the technique is at the highest levels of photographic excellence?
     Thanks.
