EOS Bodies / Re: Patent: EF 16-35 f/4L, 17-40 f/4L and Others

The 17-40 definitely needs an upgrade. The Tamron 10-24 I had for apsC was sharper than my 17-40 on FF.

You are comparing two different lenses on two different formats. It's not a reasonable comparison.
Yes, there's room for an update. But it's not a critical update. The current 17-40L and 16-35IIL are both very strong and capable performers.

FF should be sharper than APS-C all other things being equal. the fact that I had better sharpness just means that the 17-40 is just that much worse.

Mantanuska, what's the story?

Jack

Yes, it was after a fire. There was an explosion in that building the morning of New Year's Day.

It was -15 F when I took that photo

Wouldn't this still take up just as much space as having a mirror?

Looks like it is stuck on the "Mobile" layout. If you look at the bottom it gives you options for mobile or desktop but it wont let you switch to desktop.

6D2 next year? No. Try '15 or '16

I second the old $10 lens vote. Unless you feel like "hacking" the lens as described above. Its a lot easier to have an aperture ring and an old 50mm is only going to cost you 10 or 20 bucks.

Seems more likely any new M body will have dual pixel AF

Lenses / Re: Nifty 50 or Shorty 40?
« on: June 30, 2013, 01:31:09 PM »
A lot of good answers but most of them aren't choosing one of the two options provided. I have both lenses with a 6D and it really depends on what you want to shoot.
These lenses are very similar, in my opinion the only important differences are AF speed and max aperture.

If you are shooting moving subjects in low light, the 50 1.8 will end up being too slow to focus for you. The 40mm will be much faster.

If you are trying to get a shallower DOF, go with the 50 1.8

In all other situations they are pretty well matched.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mark III & RAW Video, A Case Study
« on: May 30, 2013, 09:54:32 PM »
they look the same except for contrast... pretty hard to compare them that way . if they wanted to show a valid comparison they should have processed the RAW to match the h.264 in terms of contrast and saturation

12
Did you do any processing to the DNG files ? it would be nice if they had the same WB/saturation for comparison since ive been hearing some talk saying that the RAW video is sharper than what comes standard with the camera

Yeah, my 40mm also has a really tight mount

best lens would probably be the 14-300 f2.0

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 60d or t5i, your help?
« on: April 24, 2013, 03:49:35 AM »
Personally, I don't know why you would want a T5i when you can get essentially the same camera (a T4i) for $300 less.

And while we're at it, the only reason to get a T4i over a T3i is the touch screen. If the touch screen isn't important , you will get slightly better image quality from a T3i, and it is cheaper.


All that aside, if the T5i and the 60D were the only two choices, I would vote for the 60D. Having that aperture wheel on the back of the camera makes things a lot easier. The 60D still has plenty of automatic modes
