you should also keep an eye on gumtree in your area for any good deals on stuff you are looking for at least then you get to try it out

haha thanks i'll keep that in mind. looks like i might be buying from digital rev. however hong kong buy and sell seems reasonably. i havent checked their shipping and warranty details yet.
also is there a big different from buying a genuine canon product and something's that in a "white box"? there's no canon box and manual but i've read some reviews on amazon where 3rd party vendors sell them and the customers are happy with the "white box" product - after being refunded the difference.
another online store is dirt cheap cameras based in sydney. im trying to figure out if they sell genuine canon products or if it's grey imports.
no problems also the sigma is 2 and a half times cheaper and is still an amazing lens, easily my favourite
There seems to be some serious purple fringing going on in that sample. I just happened to have your 5D2 10028 test-1 sample up to compare it to. The image with the 10028 on the 5D2 looks much better, and sharper than the 5D3 with the Sigma Lens.
There are like a million of these online HK/china-based sellers - how do you suss out the 'good' and reputable ones from the bad
Perhaps rent both of them and try 'em out? If you buy sigma, ceck and test it to death to make sure you have a good copy!
Why is everyone taking pictures In the dark?https://rapidshare.com/files/3227854404/045C0461.CR2
Thanks for the reply! Yeah, I wasn't too sure if it was more based on the af motor of the lens or the af engine of the camera - or even a combination of both.
Appreciate the response!
The 50mm lenses use a optical formula from the stone age of cameras, and not just Canon. Then, they are cheaply made because they were intended as low cost mass produced items.yep i'm hanging out to try this lens becasue i've been considering the 24 f1.4II or the 35 f1.4 too end of april apparently...
Its really too bad that there is not a upgrade. I use mine a lot, and its very good. I'd like excellent rather than good or very good. I'm thinking of selling it and just cropping from 35mm L or stepping back with 85mm f/1.8.
I'll take a look at the new 24-70mm L as well. If it is really good, I might limit my use of primes, since the 5D MK III does seem to be 1 stop + better. It also does not degrade as quickly at the really high ISO settings, noise increases more gradually. Correct exposure is absolutely critical though.
