for what its worth the canon 135 f2L is amazingly good on the eos-M it is very fast and accurate in servo mode much faster than many other lenses i have tried. i use it for out door street candids and it works great.

EOS Bodies / Re: Focus problems with the Canon 7DII?
« on: November 08, 2014, 12:20:11 AM »
I just want to be sure I understand everyone, if a camera takes good and bad photos of a subject with not setting changes it's a AFMA problem? I would think that it would be consistent.

try AFMA

but also consider this

My first 5Dmk3 when it very first came out couldnt focus on a barn door it was woefull i swapped it out for a new camera which was perfect out of the box turned out the first one had a faulty AF module.

its the price of being on the bleeding edge.

Try AFMA if its still no good see if swapping bodies helps

that´s all fine but fact is overall the 7D MK2 get´s a lot of bad press.

no matter if it´s justified or not this will make an impression on customers.

only three example:

you can say what you want about DXO but it carrys a lot of weight as you can see.

if canon does not counter that, the reputation is gone. if it´s not already too late.

just a quick question... before digital you know when we used that film stuff
did you just go out and unroll a 36 exp out of the box at the scene?
ya know cause the sensor is the only thing that matters right?

And another vote for the little voigt. :)

It's a fun lens. Simply using it is a pleasure, the manual focus thingy is not really an issue (especially when shooting landscapes, just set it at the infinity hard stop and be done with it...).

Resulting photo looks good too. f/3.5 to f/5 is not really the sharpest in the corner but it's manageable. f/5.6 to f/11, the lens is excellent across the frame.
On starry skies, it's not that good though. You'll get visible coma on the outer third of the image.
There's also a bit of CA from time to time, but that can be removed easily. Almost no flare though.

I've been playing with it for the last year or so and it's still one of my most used lens.

another vote here its a great lens

and it take 52mm filters the same as the 40 pancake which is
a) dirt cheap for high end B+W filters CPL and ND
b) smaller lighter and can be used on both lenses

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Woe and Pathos in the Sigma 50 Art?

FYI, I have the dock and I did my best to put it to good use. But it never changed the inconsistency. How do you set a value, when the deveation from measurement to measurement goes from -15 to +15?

are you having the issue if you only use the central points?
I think the unreliable issues are related to using the outer points

i like fast glass so on the 7D2 I would go

new canon 10-18 EF-S for landscapes
sigma 18-35 f1.8 for most general stuff
sigma 50mm f1.4 Art Portraits
Canon 70-200 f2.8L II long stuff

and done till you want to go longer than 200....

EOS-M / Re: Recommendations for lens to supplement EF-M 22mm?
« on: October 27, 2014, 07:33:18 AM »
the 11-22 is pretty awesome its at least equal to if not better than the 16-35 on a 5dmk3 with the exception of the crop sensor limitations vs FF and of course i'm talking about both being stopped down to f8 and not being shot wide open either. for me its a wonderfull lens and work on my IR converted EOS-M too :D

search "backfire" and see the first link to this thread....


Canon crop is still worse than everyone else when it comes to color noise (and the 5D III and 1D X are still worse than the D810).

my dad has the a6000

i comared it to the eos m and at ANYTHING other than iso 100 they are pretty much the same up to 6400
the a6000 has better shadow recovery at base iso and thats it

a6000 in camera jpg processing is woefull but raws a fine
a6000 has a wierd colour cast compared to the canon
a6000 af accuracy was not as good as the eos-m

so i think you are overstating things here a fair bit

EOS-M / Re: Recommendations for lens to supplement EF-M 22mm?
« on: October 21, 2014, 10:23:58 PM »
before the sigma 50 art came out i was using the sigma 35 art alot on the eos m as a 56mm option its amazing wide open and corner to corner sharp

If you get the 6d you don't have to get a 24-70. Maybe the 16-35 f/4 plus your 50 and your 70-200 makes a great kit?

i agree with this since you will be going for landscapes etc with the 6D 24mm isnt wide enough
