That's a sharp lens and a third the cost of the 1.4.Normally I'd agree with that advice, except, we are talking video here. The 50mm f/1.8 is practically useless when it comes to video focusing, unless you are setting focus for interviews and not changing it. The focus ring is awful.
get a flash but dont go flashing away over the primary tog you will kill some of his shots, let him shoot then shoot some when hes doneIf you read the OP again, sounds like he's shooting solo for the morning, and then the pro is taking over for the ceremony and reception
True. But, except for body size, my proposal also solves each and every one of the problems mirrorless cameras have, and it solves them in spades.Right, but size is one of, if not THE, main reason to go mirror less. An NEX and a 17mm pancake weight like 1/3 of your combo, and are < 1/2 the size. If you're lugging that long distances, or have limited space, it becomes a big deal.
1) If you buy a EF-S lens… say the EF-S 15-85 lens; Does the 15-85 mm focal length designation refer to a full frame sensor (so I would really have a wide angle lens of 24-136mm) or to a cropped sensor thereby having a true 15-85mm lens?In a way it's both. The focal length of your lens is 15-85mm...if you were to mount it on a full-frame camera, it would have that field of view (though there would be a black area because the image circle isn't large enough). But, when mounted on an APS-C camera, it adds the crop factor, which makes it perform like a 24mm-135mm lens on full-frame.
there is a good chance you will be taking pictures in a tight space so think about the 17-40 or 16-35. Make sure you have a flash to bounce off the ceiling - and use windows for the catchlight. A dreamy gaze out of a windows is a classic pose that always worksYep, the most important thing to get would be a flash, as that will do more for you than any lens upgrade. The 430EX will be fine, especially indoors...since you won't be triggering multiple flashes or anything.
I'm going to school for video, so keep that in mind. Sadly, I can only spend about $500 tops on a lens, since I spent the rest on camera gear. I wish I could get a 70-200mmIf you're going to school for video, and you plan on using the camera to shoot your stuff, then I'd spend your money on a few primes rather than on a tele zoom. You'll want something to cover the wider range, and probably something in the more traditional portrait range.
I said $3,500, as I think that will remain the list price. But, I do expect Canon to offer a rebate of $150-$200 for the holidays. Maybe double the rebate if you buy a lens. So, street price could be a little lower.Yeah, I have the same feeling, which is why I put $3300. It will still have the technical retail price of $3499, but, you'll see it on Amazon/B+H/etc at $3300ish during the holiday sales.
There isn't much room for improvement on the current version of this lens. Although Canon has been coming out with some lenses lately that are close optical perfection. I would be interested in trying this new lens out!They might add weather sealing to it, which is one thing its missing in relation to the newer L lenses. But yeah, aside from that and some new coatings, I'm not sure they can drastically improve it in any way.
Not sure I understand the point of having the pancake be larger (with adapter) on a mirrorless than it is on a 5D. But then, I'm sure the aim is to sell the lenses with the new mount.Well, remember that a 5D would still be twice the size of a likely mirrorless camera, so even if the lens sticks out a little more, its still more portable on the mirrorless camera.
So in your confusion you do not understand that the only current production models are the 1D X, 5D III, 7D (again differ5ent price points / markets), 60D, T4i / 650D and T3/ 1100D; the rest are onsolete / out of production just like a 1964 MustangWell, according to the dealer logs, the T2i, T3i, and 5dII are not out of production/discontinued. While you are correct that there are newer models, Canon keeps some old models in production, and as such you'd have to consider them part of their active line.
The DSLR market as it is today really doesnt depend on the average Joe if you ask me, the average Joe was happy with his compact and is now probabley happy with his camera phone so never bothered with a DSLR in the first place.Go to any major vacation destination and it will blow your mind how wrong you are. There are usually as many, if not more, users with a DSLR than there are with a compact camera. And its only going to be more true as people aren't gonna supplement their iPhone with a P+S camera, they'll supplement it with a m4/3 camera or a DSLR. Now, many of them are wasting the potential of a DSLR, by putting a super-zoom on the front, never learning settings, and using it like a P+S; but without those users, DSLR's would cost 2-3x what they do.
Canon should also make a 30mm f2.8 EF-S for the Rebel. That will really make the Rebel close to the size of some "interchangeable lens mirrorless". Both will have much better Ergonomics than any mirrorless.Even then, the body of those mirrorless cameras are still half the size of a rebel. An NEX with a pancake lens can fit in your jacket pocket; a T4i with the 40mm probably can't, at least not conveniently.
