Lenses / Re: Recommendation: Filter for premium lenses
« on: February 20, 2012, 01:18:45 PM »
i have a hoya pro 1d on my 70-200 f2.8 L mk2 and a b&w on my 24-70 f2.8 L shooting long exposuers at night causes both filters to give massive flare or reflection issues remove them all is fine... im considering removing filters all together as it cant be good putting cheap glass in front of your expensive lens its only ever going to degrade the quality of your image so your best buying a cheap lens i think im only going to put my filters on if in bad rain dusty environments nightclubs etc what do yous think?

2nd image looks ok to me especially jpeg from camera i have 27" cinema display so see it really good but im not a pixel peeper!

what do you compare the nikon D800 specs too? ... the 1D X?

Yes - and it's rather sad for Canon that we actually can make such a comparison.

well i don´t believe that the group canon aims at with the 1D X will be satisfied by 4 FPS....
agree with you the d800 only achieves higher fps when on crop mode with grip attached a lot of nikon users are pretty unhappy about this!

what do you compare the nikon D800 specs too? ... the 1D X?

Yes - and it's rather sad for Canon that we actually can make such a comparison.
you cannot compare a d800 to a 1dx neuro the 1dx is a pro body for starters and much hight fps completely different machines and i bet the 1dx high iso low noise is far superior to the d800 time will tell!

There's my new camera, but sure feels odd leaving Canon after 22 years.
are you being serious?so you aren't even going to wait to see canons response before jumping ship and you say you have used canon for 22 years i do not believe you!

EOS Bodies / Re: Patent: 400 f/4, 300 f/4, 200 f/5.6

Unless it's a macro (and even that would be a little wierd), that makes no sense whatsoever.
yeah a 200/5.6 is strange but these are just patents i bet theres loads of strange ones that canon have no intention of putting into production.

Lenses / Re: 70-200 II and forget about primes? (70-200 IS I is rubbish?)
« on: January 17, 2012, 07:56:01 AM »
Not trying to go too far afield, but in terms of sharpness only, how do people feel about the 200 f2.8 prime and the 70-200mm f4 IS. Are they as sharp as, or sharper than, the 70-200 f2.8 II IS?

The 70-200 II beats them both (although only slightly - detectable in tests, probably not relevant in real-world shooting).

Can I ask you your opinion about IS performance?

I have this lens and the f/4 IS version and I think that the f/4 has much better IS. Of course may be the weight of the f/2.8 lens is the culprit but I am not completely sure that it can explain everything. OK, IS definitely works (I can see the difference when I turn it off) and in fact it is very quiet.

But still I think that while the f/4 IS behaves like a true 4-stop version the f/2.8 behaves like it is not 4-stop but
1 or 1.5 stop only. Maybe it is just me but I am disappointed.

This shot was handheld at 95mm on a 5DII (free hand standing on a narrow bridge with no railing, not braced against anything), and was a 0.5 s exposure.  Granted, there's a little motion blur at 100% viewing (but it looks decent at 1600 pixels - click the pic, then View All Sizes, then Original, check the writing on the wooden columns above the falls).  That's 5.5 stops below the 1/focal length guideline - the IS seems pretty good to me...

EOS 5D Mark II, EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM @ 95mm, 1/2 s, f/5.6, ISO 100

steady shot for those shutter speeds hand held neuro would love to know your technique :)
