Lenses / Re: WA lens advice 16-35 II or the TSE 17

Hitech makes an adapter and a WA holder (need bigger filters than 4x6", IIRC).  There are DIY options on google/YouTube.

Tender Loving Care.  ;)

Also, no front filter threads on the TS-E 17L.

IQ is very good with the 1.4x - check TDP's ISO 12233 crops.

The bulbous front element of the TS-E 17L needs TLC, and using the TS movements generally means tripod and Live View.  The 16-35 is much more of a 'grab-n-go' lens.

The MkII focuses slowly. The original focuses much more sloooowwwwwly.

The MkII is optically better, too.

Without the extender engaged, it's 200-400mm f /4. With the extender engaged, it's 280-560mm f/5.6.

At the moment I'm done buying stuff...






To confirm: you see this issue with the WB set to something other than Auto or Flash?

Can anyone compare the 16-35 lens on a full-frame camera to the crop-body-angle-equivalent EF-S 10-22 on a crop-body camera?  Similar sharpness?  Better?  Worse?

... I rather stick with a preset value

My point is that on a Canon body, by selecting Flash as a WB setting, you're not selecting a fixed preset value, just a modified form of Auto WB. 

I wouldn't call this a 'bug' yet. Granted, it should be a fixed color temp with something other than a Canon flash in the hotshoe - but PWs do strange things sometimes, and I bet if you send it to Canon they'll not find an issue.

BTW, what makes you think the issue is with the body and not one of the monolights? 

Anything in the hotshoe?  On a Canon body, setting Flash WB isn't a constant 6000K no tint like it would be if you set it in a RAW converter (other than DPP).  On-camera setting for Flash WB uses color information passed from a Canon flash, so the WB isn't a constant color temp - the idea is to compensate for color temp changes in the flash tube output.  Perhaps with a CyberSync or other 3rd party trigger in the hotshoe, an odd signal comes back occasionally?  You could try setting a Kelvin WB.

My concern would be that 70mm isn't wide enough for 'a family of 4-5' for an indoor shoot.  All three are great lenses (I have them all), but for indoor and outdoor group portraits I reach for the 24-70 II...

The Eg-S is available from Amazon and and other Canon retailers for less than $35. Can be installed on 6D, 5D Mark II and 5D Mark III for sure.

Don't be too sure...  Canon does not consider the focus screen on the 5DIII to be user replaceable.

Don't have it, but since Canon released body firmware updates to support f/8 AF with a 1.4x TC and this lens, saying nothing about AFMA, and since 3rd party zooms AFMA just fine on those bodies, I would not expect any issues.

A lens correction profile for the new lens will be along eventually.

Sorry, haven't had a chance to read everything yet...If it's a debit card, call the bank.  If it's a credit card, then call the credit card company or bank that issued.  Sometimes the holds take a while to expire - this is almost always because of an issue on the bank/card side.
Perhaps you should have taken the time.  The issue under discussion involves a wire transfer...

A new 50mm will be coming in 2013, as the 35 f/2 gets replaced with a new IS version.
Patiently waiting, any hope for a 50mm f/1.2L update? Buying something now dating back to 2006 is making me uneasy.

2006 is comparatively new.  The other 50mm lenses that are 'current' are the 50/1.4 from 1993, the 50/1.8 from 1990, and the 50/2.5 Compact Macro from 1987.  There are many lenses in the current lineup, including many L-series lenses, that were released 15 years ago or more.
