Lenses / Re: 24-105mm f/4 L IS on a crop camera
« on: May 14, 2012, 10:07:10 PM »
personally i think the 24-105 f4L + canon 10-22 EF-S lens make a pretty nice combo
not that the 17-55 is bad or anything but the 24-105 is a really nice versitle lens and the 10-22 is pretty good for when you need to go really wide

Dido.  I came very close going this route when I sold my 15-85.  But because one of the reasons I decided to sell it was for a weather sealing, I went with the 16-35 and 24-105.  I'll have to hold off on ultra wide shooting until I get a FF body.
you can always look at the 11-16 f2.8 tokina which is supposed to be pretty good

fingers crossed for 27mp aps-h with 18mp APS-C crop mode :P

and maybe 8fps in APS-H 10fps in APS-C

Wouldn't that be something!

woops calculation fail APS-H would be around 30mp with an APS-C 18mp using the current 18mp pixel density
then use gapless micro lens tech improve iso same body as 5Dmk3 same battery same AF its probably not going to hit the iso heights of the 5Dmk3 or the 1Dx but it should still be a nice performer :P

ah dreams...

interesting comparison
tamron looks sharper in the center
less fall off in light on the corners but man does iq go to hell in the corners on the tamron
tamron looks to have better contrast than the mk1
overall looking at that I hate to say it but the tamron looks better since the mid frame sharpness is pretty much a wash between the 2.

I really wonder if buying the tamron and a 35 f1.4 might be better than buying the 24-70 mk2
the 35 f1.4 has been tempting me to buy it for quite a while now. knowing my luck i'd buy it and they would anounce the mk2

cant wait to see the mk2 results though

maybe just a refit of the 5Dmk2 with the 19 point 7D AF or the 60D AF
plastic body?

try looking for used G11 or maybe even lucky and pick up a G12 for that now the G1X is out

I use spot metering and this is how i get around it

I shoot in manual
I use back button focus so a half press of the shutter meters only not focuses
when i go to take a shot i point the center at the part of the scene i want to control the exposure
adjust shutter speed just use the exposure bar in the VF i usually have it set so the meter shows it a little over exposed
frame it focus with the back button and shoot

I can see it causing issues if you shoot av or tv but in these uses you are better off using evaluative metering
especially if you are using zone AF too

2904
I would say for your uses the benefits will be minimal the bracketing on the mk3 though is significantly better
and since you dont like overporcessed HDR have a look at this guys methods

Lenses / Re: Your dream 50mm f/14
« on: May 13, 2012, 10:42:03 PM »
You get to redesign the 50mm f/1.4 from the ground up. What do you leave in? What do you leave out? What improvements do you make and features do you add? And what's your realistic price point, given all of these features and the population you're targeting?

Build and materials as per the 100mm f2.8L IS macro
keep the size similar to the current 50 f1.4
as in hybrid IS as per the 100mm would be awesome
full weather sealing as per the 100mm f2.8L
non extending with focus
sharp wide open
make is L series but keep it tough and light
8 or 9 circular aperture blades

I'd pay $1000 for that lens bah who am i kidding if they released that i'd probably pay whatever they damn welll wanted :(  :'(

more annoying than any cost increase is making funtional changes to the detrement of stills on a DSLR
a perfect example of this is making the AA filter stronger not weaker to fix moire. this comes at the expense of still image sharpness which give the 5Dmk2 sensor a slight sharpness edge. the difference is not huge but its there. Put video in fine but dont impact on still shooting functionality or performance to improve video performance leave those things for the video models / cameras

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: A few hours with a 5D3
« on: May 13, 2012, 10:26:47 PM »
I wish they would have a look at how the fuji X10 does auto ISO
it's pretty much the perfect implementaion of it IMO you can set it to auto but also set the ISO ceiling
and in manual it just adjusts the iso within your specified range retaining your set aperture and shutter speed

EOS Bodies / Re: Brand New 5d3 with 1500 shutter counts.
« on: May 13, 2012, 10:01:25 PM »
My 5D3 had a similar situation, the first file names were just over 5000. I was surprised. Even a shop demo wouldn't show numbers like this.

There is a simple entirely plausible explanation given by our local CPS representative. Unless you are using a brand new card, the camera will pick up header information from the CF card to establish a commencement number. In your case it was 1500, in my case 5000. It's just a number and does not correlate to shutter actuations.

thats what I meant :P

just a thought, did you use a freshly formatted card with the camera?
cards from another camera can pick up numbering where the other camera left off

Lighting / Re: 600EX RT + transmitter + 5d MK2 Sync speed
« on: May 11, 2012, 02:56:22 AM »
I just use phottix odins and 580s
an amazing thing with the odins is they will sync to 1/8000 sec with any flash even studio strobes
you can mix with speedlights and even fire 580s at full power with higher sync speeds and not get the power loss generated by the HSS function
