Hi PW....how do you like 40mm shorty with 5D III so fall?So far so good. I'm not expecting $1500 L performance from it. But it's centre sharpness at f/2.8 makes it highly usable at that aperture. It kills my 24-70 f/2.8 at f/2.8 but that would not be hard. Corners can get a little mushy at f/2.8, but this is not an issue for most subjects I shoot. There is noticeable vignetting at f/2.8 but this is quickly fixable in LR4. Soon the fix will be automatic when LR4.x is released with updated lens profiles. I have an LR default set up for automatic lens correction on Import. Stopping down to f/4 ramps the IQ right up with f/5.6 delivering excellent results right across the frame.
Considering how well my 90mm TSE lens takes extension tubes and/or a 1.4x teleconverter, a dedicated TSE macro lens seems unnecessary.+1
APS-H is a dead end to me. Only FF or APS-C are valid formats as far as I'm concerned.
APS-H. Why? I really see no point in it anymore. It served a purpose when FF was wildly expensive and APS-C wasn't up to the IQ. It had an added advantage of faster frame rates and a higher useable ISO, great for low light level sports shooting. Now, with improvements in IQ in other sensor formats, the reason no longer exists for the format to hang around. It really is a no mans land for formats.
Suit yourself. I've bought a number of lesser items here. No problems, fast free shipping with tracking.This caught my eye...5DIII pricing under $3,000! It was inevitable, but so soon? It's $2975.I don't see their phone number or address under Contact Us. It doesn't look legit to me....NO THANKS.
Price is dropping fast and is close to 3000 euro now in the netherlands so price is not an issue anymore
Where do you get this prize from? In Germany, it's no less than €3250, didn't drop a cent since release - obviously they're still serving back-orders and there's no competition yet.
If 7D II is not FF, how to update？
The 40 + 7D makes a great street combo - makes me uninterested in a mirrorless/rangefinder/P&S
