The resolution of the Zeiss is truly amazing. All Zeiss lenses are not this spectacular but WOW that is amazing!
As usual GREAT Review, Dustin!
The only Zeiss that I have in my kit is the Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 and that is pretty impressive as well.
Dustin, are you still planning on reviewing the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art??...I think that you mentioned a while back that you were going to do a review and a comparison, right?
Maybe I missed it, I tried a search but could not find it.
Thanks for the reply Dustin...I thought you may be having difficulty picking up the new Sigma 50mm Art....
I have the older Sigma and I actually like my copy for what it cost and for the bokeh it gives me.... I think it is a cool lens for the price...but DEFINITELY has its flaws....The lens is positioned very well from a cost performance standpoint for what is out there IMHO...they could be found at a nice discount when I bought mine ...but for some reason it seems that the price has gone up to list recently...I think it may be because you are getting decent value for the money. It will be interesting so see what you have to say about it.
Also, I just sold my Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L II to purchase the New Canon 16-35mm f/4L IS.... I really like the lens...A LOT...I am considering selling my 21mm Zeiss f/2.8. This new zoom is REALLY sharp!!!!!
Look forward to what you think of it when you review it!!!
Thanks for being here.
Two of my equipment suppliers made promises and then didn't have stock at the review time. I have just had the original Sigma 50mm f/1.4, which I will do a brief review of (didn't particularly like it), and will do the newer Sigma soon. I've got the new Tamron "superzooms" right now. (28-300mm VC, and 16-300 VC for crop). I will be getting the new Canon 16-35mm f/4 IS and the Tamron 18-200mm for the EOS M mount next week. I've got lots of lenses on the go for review right now, but the Sigma will probably be next.
For those testing the IS, are you half-pressing the shutter (or pressing AF-ON if you use BBF) and then letting the IS system operate for ~0.5 s to fully stabilize the image? I've often found that if you simply press the shutter on an IS lens, you get a shot that's not much better than no IS. Here are some tests I did with the 100L.Good point!!!! I was not considering that although I was half pressing to focus most of the time so I think that the IS was up and running... after listening to the little motor start up you get a feel for what you are saying...it has to start and get up and running and it is NOT instantaneous. Thanks for the help!
