Yup, my favourite lens too. It just does everything.

If you need something that'll do head shots plus head and shoulders and close-ups, though, then take a very close look at the 100mm 2.8 IS Macro. An amazing lens in every respect including price. Buy one regardless.

The one problem is that is has a rather slow "macro-style" af speed. And yes, I know where the focus limiter switch is. It also has a "circular" bokeh wide open which afaik is stronger than with lenses with a larger front diameter.




Not quite sure where you've got that idea from, the AF is pretty fast with the 100 2.8L IS. Not that AF is much of an issue for portraits.

I shoot at 200mm in the studio for head shots. It's all about the look.


The 135 f2 and 85 f1.2 are spectacular lenses but shine mostly outdoors and at their widest aperture.






But if you're simply asking which focal length for head shots, then I'll simply repeat my preference for 200mm.

I've got my doubts... There's easier ways to disguise a prototype camera.

I'd check you haven't damaged the floor.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 5D Mark IV To Feature 4K Video?

For those talking about the 5D4 with 4K taking away from the 1DC, try to keep in mind that 8K is already on the horizon, and I'd be surprised if Canon aren't already working on a 1DC replacement with just that.

Why do they bother making video cameras if video is such a big deal on SLRs? I hate the fact I had to spend so much extra for a feature I've used once on my 5D3.


Why can't they just split the lines properly and sell each one at a reasonable price?

Retiina... Very Retina.

Things of interest here..? The gas mask... Oh, and the Illum!

Maybe just get the full frame camera now rather than later?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7d2 IQ thoughts.
« on: June 12, 2014, 11:11:20 PM »
It will shoot in black & white only. You heard it here first...

If your budget makes you lean towards the 70D and not a 5D3, then I'd suggest you can't afford a 7D2.




70D it is, unless you want to save up some more pennies.

EOS Bodies / Re: 50d just died, trip in a week, what should I do?

Oops, just saw the last reply.




I still stand by what I say, although the 70D is a fine choice.

I agree with getting a 6D with a 24-105




Deal with selling the EF-S lenses when you get back.






Have a nice trip!
