Lenses / Re: Canon EF-S 55-25mm IS STM vs EF 200mm 2.8L II
« on: January 12, 2015, 12:20:52 AM »
Hi MJ:  What about other options? The Bokeh of the 55-250 is not legendary... if eventually you want to go full frame, you are better off investing in EF lenses. Having 2 L lenses that are F2.8 200mm seems like a bit of waste. Just throw a black cover on the 70-200, if it bothers you much.

If I were you, I'd seriously consider the 135 f/2 it can take TC's, and by itself it is great for low light concerts/ sports. It has very fast AF and it's Bokeh is as good as any great lens out there. It is light and inconspicuous. I will admit it is close in length to the 100m macro, but it is a stop faster, 35mm longer and will give you more dreamy blur, and costs not a whole lot.

A try at long Exposure

Nicely done K-amps.

Thanks Click. The Sigma 12-24mm II is a very interesting lens, despite it's shortcomings.

If Canon Changed Sensor tech in the 7d2, then expect only minor bump in DR/IQ/Noise for any 5D variant. Don't get your hopes high... Stay close to reality.   :-X

I hope Canon can change the Sensor processing and RAW file algorithms to 18 or 20 bit....

I will probably choose the high MP, low FPS, less AF point model since I am primarily Marco/landscape/portraits. I do not expect them to price it above $4k given that the D810 is out there.

I do hope they extend the spread of the AF points, it's relatively clumped in the 5D3, although still quite usable.

Hi Burnfield,

With 2x, manual focus and turn IS off, or the image will be blurred.

Please post pics, with 2x, 1.4x and without TC for us :-)

Does it take TC's? If not .......... I am selling all my Canon gear and moving to Nikon.  :P

Get it.... Don't think. My 70-200m.ii only comes out when i need the reach. Before it was semi permanently mounted on the body.

Lenses / Re: How satisfied are you with the 100-400 II?

It has exceeded my expectations. Works great with the 1.4 TC M3.

This is exactly what I wanted to hear. Looking at TDP comps, it fares well against the tamron with 1.4x, but I am curious how it stacks up against the 2 Sigmas.

Software & Accessories / Re: HDR vs ML Dual ISO

I like the Dual ISO version myself. The HDR looks a bit overdone, especially the sky and the water below, weird yellow/ greenish cast.

By the way, where is this place? Its beautiful.
