my Sigma 85 f1.4 seems to be working fine i succesfully did all the AFMA last night on it as well as a bunch of other lenses thankfully since its my favourite lens

3047
Are there no landscape photogaphers here?

sorry they all changed to nikon...  :'(

Which model Kenko? If its the latest one, hopefully they can offer a upgrade.  I'd get in contact with them and verify that they are seeing your issue.
 
My tubes are merely pass thru conductors, no electroics.  They should make no difference.

yeah the latest ones
the kenko tubes have electronics and report aperture and exif i'll try them tonight

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5DMk3 Poll Deleted?
« on: March 27, 2012, 08:48:46 PM »
No it was not the 500th thread about what people thought.

It was a poll about frequency of issues (if any) that people have been complaining about with their 5Dmk3.  I'm interested in what issues I should be aware of when my preorder arrives and if it was just a select few.

Guess I also assumed I'd at least get a message as to why the post was deleted.
I made a poll for this already maybe thats why? not sure though

To be honest, the IQ is negligible over my 5D2.  Although all I ever really wanted out of my 5D2 was better AF, Slightly faster frame rate, and a dual card slot.  So I cant complain.  More testing still needs to be done. And a good side by side with the D800.  Ill give a more complete review when I put it through the paces at my wedding.  Ive found wedding photography to be a good testing ground :)

Isn't "testing" at a wedding a bit risky?

brave man! I'm waiting unitl i've fully tested everything before i shoot any critical work with it.

I discovered this last night, I'm very disappointed, I havent tried my kenko extension tubes yet, i'll try them later and see. I hope canon fix this with a firmware update

obviously no one has told that guy you cant take shots of birds with a full frame camera :P

(that was a shameless joke at the expense of the APS-C people, sorry but I couldnt resist)

but more seriously those shots look really good

i think trolls wre responsible for most smiting, maybe the cutoff for being able to give karma should need like a minimum of 100 post count, something high, as trolls would likely get bored or banned before they get that many posts

I liked karma

shot my first drifting competition this weekend.  Never done panning shots before, but I think i hit it right on the money. 



I also learned that I should bring an extra 16gb card next time I shoot.  I had to change to small raw have way through shooting.

yeah that is a nice shot

I think camera paradise are dodgy though they advertise 1 price which looks too good to be true then try to trape you on shipping.
stick with digital rev, dzone2, kong kong  buy and sell, ozdigital online
they are the 4 i use mainly

In humans the nose grows throughout your life so large noses are associated with older people.


keeps growing! damn i am doomed... I wonder if they make eye piece extensions for people that are geometrically nasally challenged

Ha Ha Ha!!! Not really. That is why they have live view and some cameras have the flip out lcd screen!

turning your dSLR into an overpriced and glorified point and shoot

I get your drift. But, (and it is a BIG but) {notice that that word ended with a single 't' and not two...} if a vital part of your anatomy interfered with the ability to shoot with an SLR in the way you would prefer to, would you not want to shoot at all? I would, even if I had to point...

Now that was all banter... However, my eyes are not as good as they used to be. So a larger screen and reading glasses help me. An angled LED screen helps frame a picture when there is a wall of photographers in front of me having "Press" passes. I don't have any such privileges. So the flip-out screen helps. Now if I were 8 foot something I probably would not care; but I am not, so that is where my preference comes from.
Now I could have sworn Canon did have some sort of extension. I think it may have also magnified the image a tad. I'll have try & remember where I saw it. I think it was OEM and an on their website.....
Really while I was joking i would totally buy that for my 5Dmk2, 1D bodys have it further out by default so they are more comfortable

« on: March 27, 2012, 07:47:54 PM »
I would happily pay $1000 for a new 50mm f1.4L similar size to the exisiting and L build same as the 100 f2.8L macro with similar sharpness etc circular apperture baldes etc engineering plastics to keep is small and light
which is one of the benefits of the fiddy.
