I just wonder, it looks like Sigma will have to deliver a lot of Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art lenses.
Are they able to keep up the quality of each of those lenses? They did not have a very great reputation in Quality Assurance.
What is the experience with the Simga 35mm f/1.4 Art?

If there are min & max specs set in production, then I wouldn't worry much about QTY vs time. The 35mm ART seems to receive great feedbacks so far... ;)

I guess that regarding QA it all comes down to patience. Just wait and see the experiences of others  ;)

Mountain and lake in Alberta


For someone living in a flat country, this is absolutely stunning to look at. I am impressed by such a landscape.

...........Why can't people just agree to disagree, and accept the fact the 6D is a great camera for what it is - an entry level FF body with great IQ but with simplified AF.
.................
+1
The 5D MKII is/was used many years - also by professionals - to produce stunning photos to generate money. The 6D is a better camera than the 5D MKII and surely will fullfil the same role. It is a very good camera that produces IQ on par with the 1DX and 5DMKIII

EOS Bodies / Re: Patent: Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L IS
« on: April 20, 2014, 04:24:37 AM »
I am curious, would  a 24-70 f/2.8 IS beat the IQ of the non-IS version? Would they be able to do it? Why paying a higher price just to have IS? There is already the tamron with IS and otherwise if you do not need IS there is the non-IS. So how succesful will the IS version be? It has to come with better IQ than the non-IS version and for a reasonable price - I mean top 2000 euro (which is 1000 euro more than the Tamron) And yes, that must drop the price of the non-IS to not more than 1500 euro

Software & Accessories / Re: Fail to contact support Reikan (Focal)

It has been 44 days ago since I filed my support ticket. I still did not get any reply.
Does anyone have a suggestion what to do? I can't register my 6D and I really want to AFMA my 6D.


(In my initial contact to Reikan I uploaded/sent screencaptures to Reikan of my problem licensing the 6D thinking it would help them)

Took some images of the eclipse we had a few days ago with my 600. They turned out pretty great, if I may say so myself. ;)

Orion Atlas GEM
Canon EOS 7D
Canon EF 600mm f/4 L II
BackyardEOS (For image sequence acquisition)

ISO 100 @ f/8, shutter speeds from 1/250th to 15s.

Those are stunning! Beautiful.
Thanks for sharing them here on the forum.
Well done.

I'd love to hear some stories of Canon releasing a lens or three


Yes. IMO Canon is too much operating from within the comfortzone. Maybe now they start to feel some pressure. No?

I see, you mean IQ comparison. Got that.
I thought you meant different.

Software & Accessories / Re: The best tripod ...
« on: April 15, 2014, 10:36:59 AM »
Hi everyone,

I'm looking to take my photography hobby to the next level, so to speak  :D , so I'm thinking of buying me a tripod and a tripod head. I've done some research online, but I think I'm more confused now, than when I started thinking about tripods and heads.  ;D (I guess, that happens a lot). From my understanding, Manfrotto and Induro seem to be the best tripod brands, so I'm looking to get the above mentioned gear from either of these two. I'm more inclined, however, towards Induro products.

In so many words, what do you guys make of this?


Looking at your gear I would too invest in a good tripod. Did you consider Really Right Stuff or Gitzo?

Apologize if this has already been posted, but to me this has been the most useful comparison and breakdown yet:

http://lcap.tistory.com/entry/Sigma-50mm-f14-dg-hsm-Art-Review


I agree.
btw it was already posted


Okay, thanks!

I see a few other sites that do sample images but they front or back focus and overexpose and do NO editing, and to me that misrepresents what one could actually get. IF they want to post samples that are untouched, they should at least focus properly and provide the original raw's for us to play with.



100% correct. I guess this is showing what sites do proper review and therefor are relevant source

Here's what I've been waiting for - a 50L to 50A comparison from SLR Lounge

I think it's enough to convince me to cancel my pre-order.  The Sigma is sharper, but not shockingly so, and the Canon's bokeh is slightly better (IMHO).  The Canon also appears to have ever-so-slightly better contrast, while the Sigma has better CA control, but again, only by a hair.

The other thing I've learned is that you'll have buy the USB dock to enable full time manual focus (which I guess isn't standard for Sigmas).  That's crappy. 

The 50L has killer build quality and USM in a much smaller package and I don't think the Sigma is worth 950 of my dollars for such subtle differences at f/1.4 in what for me, is a portrait lens. 

I guess I can't cancel it till the 24th, so I'll keep my mind open until then, but I think I'm going to cancel and resume the 50L II vigil ;)



The differences are little, very little. I can understand while you own the 50L not spending money on the Sigma. I would not spend 500 euro more (here in the Netherlands) for the 50L while the difference with the Sigma is so little. So as a starter for the 50mm, my choice would be the Sigma.
