It's a self portrait!    ;D

Love it, great stuff, Filter Forge ??

Thanks!

Not sure what you are asking me? Filter Forge?

Filter Forge is a Layers type Software Programme that I use sometimes for backgrounds/Effects, similar to an earlier post of mine "Bhuda Kyoto", I thought you may have used FF, but similar effects are workable in other Programmes, either way, I like what you've done with the Image.

Oh, sorry...I did not know what Filter Forge was, no..these are two straight shots put together. Used  PS and Nik suite.
Didn't get too fancy...put them together and added some shadows.

Lenses / Re: I have just lost confidence with Canon Rumors & B&H
« on: April 17, 2013, 04:11:10 PM »


The point is this: Every time someone clicks on that lens promotion for B&H from this website and then actually make a purchase from B&H money is made by the owner of the website. Since B&H is the largest reputable dealer in camera equipment, many links will be listed on this site and many others as it brings in income. This is not going to stop.
Buyer beware.....as always...but as someone pointed out, that lens is not in the promo.
Be happy...I bought the lens several months back for $2300!  :) It's a great lens and I have been using it a lot so, oh well!

Ok now, this is true, anyone can join it actually --- its the affiliate program - http://www.bhphotovideo.com/find/affiliates.jsp

Many websites do this but

"We’ll Pay...
Monthly commission begins at 2% with the possibility for increased percentage based upon performance."

So it's really not that much "income" unless we were all buying 1dx's in droves from b&h by clicking on the link here.

Chuck..I am not saying there is ANYTHING wrong with getting compensated for all the great stuff that is put together for all of us on this website...my point was that that reality figures into anything that gets posted here. It's basic commerce 101!  :)

over reacting much?

No I don't think I'm over reacting. I got the lower price and my lens is in transit. I find it offensive that a new "better deal" is being hyped, that is not a better deal, and when I point this out, my post is blocked. Do you understand that logic?

Another thread turned into a test chart comparison argument. I'm surprised there's no BBQ in these photos.

Notice how I don't do that in my reviews ;)


THANK GOD!!!!!!

same here, notice that I have the both lenses and are a little bit allergic to peoples statements when they not have a clue what they are talking about and have not tested the lenses against each other
So here comes two new files. Which is best regarding bokeh ? f-1,4 from sigma and canon and the background
I see clearly green ca from one of the lenses, is this to short or to long from the sharpness plane and to the  back ground?

I do not need to sit around testing lenses...I let professionals do that for me and I read their results. The results lead me to buy the Sigma which is easily $400-$500 less than the Canon and rated superior by all the pro reviewers, not a weekend warrior. Also, to read Justin's review, a review from a VERY COMPETENT real world photographer just puts it over the top for me. My Sigma is an incredible lens. The price is amazing. If Canon comes up with update, the price will approach $2000. So the purchase for me was a no brainer, and I have been out making images with the lens, in the real world and have been nothing but pleased with my decision. Great lens!

$2398 on B & H for the 6D + 24-105 + 70-300.  So the question is, is the 70-300 worth $200?  I have plans to buy either the 70-200 F4 IS or 70-300L.  I might just do this deal and re-sell the 70-300 non L.  It'll depend on how Amazon handles it, since I bought the kit for $2329 a week ago.

This is my question too. Is that 70-300 worth picking up for $200? For all 3, the camera plus the 2 lenses, it's the same price that the camera +24-105 was. So almost like getting a free lens. ? But I'd rather just save the $200 if it's a crappy lens and/or one I can't resell for more than I got it for. Any thoughts?

Well The 70-300 isn't an L lens...(I guess you need to read some reviews to get an idea of the quality...I'm not familiar with the lens....but you will be using it on a current FF camera..so whatever is not good will really show), but hey it's selling at B&H for well over $400 so you could certainly get more than your money back by selling it if you do not like it!...

OK...so the Canon rebate advertisement posted for this discussion lists the 135mm f/2L for $989 with rebate, so why:
Does B&H Photo not even list the lens on their website???
Amazon lists the lens @  $1131.00 ???
..and pretty much everyone but J&R who has the lens lists it for over $1100 ???
That price is higher than Canon's pre-rebate price.
kind of odd, no?
I must be missing something here. HELP! LOL!

OK...what I have become a big "fanboy" of is Justin's reviews. They are fantastic, along with the images he includes.
Love the shot of Trevor (and thanks for the lighting info).
I own the lens and it is simply the best 35mm on the market for a Canon 5dIII owner, (the great price is just a bonus).
It is a joy to twist this glass onto the front of my rig. (No winking needed). Who cares if Canon updates their 35L!
(I figure with the $1000 I saved I will pick up a 135L next week when the rebate kicks in!).
Unlike Justin...the only complaint I have is the useless toaster-cozy case? WTF? A big square lunch case for a sleek round lens???? Go figure. That thing went right back in the box as soon as I took the lens out. What would be nice is a custom-fit, sleek neoprene case. Keep it simple.
I also own the Sigma 50mm and although it is not at the level of this new 35mm I am very happy with that lens, too. (Guess I got a good copy... I covered the unsightly shinny gold ring with pinstriping tape, no...not red,  just for fun and to confuse enthusiasts! LOL!).
My only question is: Dare we expect more of this from Sigma????

Lenses / Re: Which Lens ... 24-70 II or primes?
« on: April 11, 2013, 04:37:41 AM »
Sell the 24-105 and get the 24-70 II and the sigma 35!!!!!!!
I did the same thing.
Both of these lenses are astounding on my 5DIII. (I don't care if Canon makes a 35mm f/1.4L II. The Sigma will be $1000 less and the IQ will be better and the price leaves enough cash to pick up a 135mm f/2L or a Sigma 85mmf/1.4!).
Shooting in tight the 35mm f/1.4 has some creative advantages...I also find that when I put this lens on the camera that it is so much fun to use and the results so eye-popping that I do not want to take it off the camera and find myself composing shots to fit the focal length and speed of this lens. Fun, fun, fun!

Nishi Drew, thanks for taking the time for the explanation..a little tech for me but you are basically confirming my perception that these BM cameras are game changers for many leaving Canon in the dust.  God knows what this means for my precious still camera in the future! LOL!
