A recent wedding photo @ F1.2 w 5dm3

The second image @ F1.8 w 5dm3

Chromatic Aberration @ 1.4

Funny thing being that i could visibly see chroma on the sigma images when i tested it on text in the store yet very little on the canon 85. Def strange to me that this testing shows the direct opposite of what i found to be true.

Not a bad point Wickid but 85 is more ideal for portraits imo. Besides the 100 is macro and 85 wouldn't be.

From a specs standpoint without any hands on I would be shocked if the noise wasn't pretty close to the 5dm3. Also the real benefit and maybe the only one to guys like me that already have better cameras is the -3 ev focussing in the dark. Like Neuro has mentioned the 5dm3 is -2 ev, the 6d is -3ev. Wedding receptions may have just gotten easier to shoot in the dark without flash. Still I keep thinking about the 1dm4 more than most cameras just because of its build, price and at some point would replace my 1dm3. It would be smarter from the standpoint of shooting sports too. While I have made the 5dm3 my main sports camera this year as a test I did have to shoot smarter and didn't have the voltage to power the focus speed like a 1d body does. Its hard to beat a 1d for sports. As far as the 1dx is concerned, yea I want it but I can't swallow that i can have 2 - 5dm3's for less.

With sports I am usually F4-F7.1, F4 for participants out on the course, F7.1 for finish-line since bunches of people coming thru will more likely be in focus. Even at F4 I never go much beyond like 1/2500 sec on the brightest of days. Now shooting big apertures I havent done a lot of and I don't have any ND filters. I just don't like fiddling with them during weddings. I am open to something of that sort but only now because i have the 85 F1.2 again.

Comment i didn't like. just buy a 1dx if you want that.

WTH Canon, April 2013 for firmware? What in the world, this isn't coming up with an anti virus for anthrax. Are these guys geniuses or not? How can I think Canon has their crap together when they claimed F8 wasn't possible on the 1dx. What is their angle or game or are they really that incompetent. I know i couldn't ever do this kinda thing but a multi billion dollar company that doesn't have the brightest minds on this makes me wonder. What is the angle on the timeline??? If they were smart they would have polled photographers about this asking what would you rather have this or that (in reference to interchangeable screens or the new kind they use). You know the guys shooting with the demo's were like, wth this is a pain when its dark. Jeff Ascough is also saying wth, why are my zoom buttons not where they have always been. I know we can change things as time progresses on but the changes they are making aren't seemingly well thought out, which also makes me think that can't be true so what's the angle?
Rant I Know lol.

Nice shoot fotografiasi, they look happy together.

I did do some reading up on this and Canon explains the slower focusing is to increase in-focus accuracy. Makes sense to me.
The 1.4x is 50% slower focus
The 2x is 75% slower focus

Although an F2 version of the 85 would be good especially if it is the hybrid IS. Canon would be smarter to make it 85 F2.8 hybrid IS to keep it more distant from the F1.2. If they do an F2 version they should have regular IS. If the 35 F2 were regular IS it would make it easier to overlook. If i was Canon I would streamline the lens lineup, 1 L version, one non L. The funny thing is the new 24-70 F4 screws that up. I get the white lens being duplicated but don't understand this 24-70F4 L concept. Given that 35mm is a more popular lens like the 50 and 85 focal lengths It makes sense to give it added spice. I'd say there are way more shooters out there that feel safer shooting F2.8 or smaller apertures. Given that I'd say there will be some major value to hybrid is helping with panning motion and low light shooting. Shooting F1.4 means more focus issues with movement, yes you get faster shutter speeds but your miss rate increases also. There are pluses and minuses to every lens.
It is pretty obvious Canon wants their cameras to be used heavily for video until those who get more serious are ready for their cinema lens lineup. Having IS on more of their lenses I believe is a priority for them. Just look at firmware updates and features, Canon seems to make these cameras a priority of 60/40, camera/video. I am ok if this is wrong, I made it up, but they are really getting serious about video! This kinda annoys me since the whole focus point thing not lighting up is a very useful camera function that they def knew they skipped but wow hdmi is coming to 5dm3. WTH!

How are you liking the 40 Dolina? I haven't had any recent work or time with the lens but from my simple tests, it looks amazing and the focus on the 5dm3 is without flaw. That said its not as fast as an L but then i expected that. I didn't buy it for fast focus.

If you are extending the reach of a Canon tele I don't think it wise to compromise on the quality of an extender. Can Kenko glass even come close to Canon's optics? I guess we all have our reasoning processes. I just sold my 1.4 II and would prob consider a 2x III for the future if i needed the focal length. Although i can surmise the version III is better than the version II as it is no doubt optimized for the latest L's that work with an extender I wonder about real world testing on the matter. Anyone have data on that?

Sorry for the off-topic. I just wanted to ask a question.

Everyone says that there are good or bad copies of lenses. Isn't misfocusing on specific distances fixable by Canon?
I have done this and i have sent in my camera bodies and lenses calibrating them all. Its expensive as H just to ship because of insurance and weight. One thing i will say is camera sensors are also part of the problem many times. Some camera sensors aren't perfectly aligned on the body so it affects lenses that are mounted. Some lenses don't cause trouble on a body that doesn't have a properly aligned sensor with it but i'd say the big glass isn't as forgiving.

Who actually uses lens caps anyway?  I don't have time for lens caps tbh.
I use them often as a beer coaster, the only thing worse than having a bride angry because you turned up drunk is having them accuse you of leaving 'beer can rings' all over the place.

Lenses / Re: 40 2.8 with extension tubes
« on: November 13, 2012, 10:27:40 AM »
Yes sir, i have used the 70-200 i believe it was with a 12 and a 25 on it and it worked fine. The only thing i didn't like is being steady with a heavy long lens. It does render flowers really well with a tripod or monopod too. I used a spider holster setup but attached the 2 hooks on a think tank belt on that belt i also have a bag hanging behind me. In the bag i kept my fisheye lens, color checker passport and cases of unused recharged batteries to change out. The beauty of the 40 is its small even with an extension tube and that will be in the bag instead of my fisheye lens. I sold that lens. I don't want a macro lens or at least commit to paying the money for one.
