EOS Bodies / Re: Patent: Dual Pixel Phase Detect AF While in AI Servo

I would note, however, that Canon just released a 55–200 in EF-M format.  That at least makes EF-M a little bit less absurdly broken as a platform.  Up until last month, EF-M was pretty much a sad joke....

damn mine must not have got the memo that it was a sad joke as it still takes great photos...
so does my IR converted one :D

but then i use the 11-22 90% of the time and occassionally my rokinon 8mm on it

nice work mr surapon i was looking for this

I agree i find it a ho hum focal length not wide enough or not tight enough
I really like 20mm though its a really nice wide focal length

Is that opinion based on full frame use or aps-h?
full frame

i loved the 16-35 on apsh it gave 20-48mm effective focal length which was a really nice walk around IMO

I'm amazed that such sweeping decisions about if a lens is good or not is being based on
DOT TUNE!

Seriously Dude. If your sellers found this out I bet they would stop selling to you, I know I would.

you really need to firstly do some good research on AFMA try start with the article neuro wrote on the digital picture

if your really want to go crazy with AFMA really the only option is Focal and still that needs to be setup correctly and the instructions need to be followed or you will make the lens worse.

that lens hood actually looks usable!

so if this and the 16-35 2.8 are both full frame why does the 16-35 2.8 have such a ridiculously unusable lens hood.

Looks like a great lens if you can live with f4 max aperture, i'll keep waiting for a new 16-35 f2.8 hopefully with IS too :P

I didn't pay attention to this announcement in April, but recently I bought a second hand Canon 24mm f/2.8 to get a taste for 24mm primes, and... fell in love with it. And now I want more!
Congrats and welcome to the 24mm fan club :)  It's my favorite which might explain the four lenses I own that cover this focal length which could be just a bit excessive...

Not to be a dissenter... but 24mm hasn't appealed to me at all.  Mind you, I've only shot at f4... so maybe at wider aperture it looks better... when I do use 24, I think... probably could go wider... I can't imagine having a prime lenses at 24... and I'm saying this with all due respect...

nice

just out of interest are your odins the mk2 version? or the mk1

EOS-M and 11-22 IS?

super light package, awesome lens nice and sharp with flexability of zoom, nice live view, STM and video autofocus
can also use magic lantern on it

cant really think of a better setup for what you want, the EOS-M is a great little video cam
battery life is its biggest downside here though

and with the current pricing of the M its a cheap option even when you factor in buying the 11-22

or you could just use the 18-55 kit lens which is pretty decent anyway and is also IS.

« on: August 08, 2014, 09:26:53 PM »
really forget about it

people worry about the wierdest stuff....  :P

I can't imagine being that highly strung that i get concerned if by using IS the lifespan of the lens will be reduced.
its like worrying about driving your car in case you use up some tread on the tyres...

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Sigma 50 1.4 Art NOT bokehlicious?
« on: July 26, 2014, 08:41:53 PM »
Kai at digitalrev published his hands-on review video. Lack of beautiful bokeh at 1.4 seems to be a weak point of this lens, based on Kai. I was wondering what other users think of it.
http://www.digitalrev.com/article/sigma-50mm-f-1-4/MjQ3MTQwNjA2

I think he's very wrong. And he's also wrong about build quality.

yeah he needs to step away from the crack pipe on this review...

CPL's work ok too if its not too bad
cuts down on smog haze a little too...

i have the tamrac rally 5 i think it is it has a nice padded part to hold a tablet can hold even a 70-200 f2.8 with no hood as well as a 5D with a 24-70 plus a fast prime ie 50mm art or 35 art so it would easily hold what you are chasing

front pocket has enough room to hold card batteries other assorted stuff

they are well made and cheap

the rally 7 is bigger if you need more space

I also think the apache range looks quite good and is worth a look

The  100(non-L) macro has eight blades, the 100L has nine blades. You can shoot OoF highlights at f/8 to see the lenses show their octagon/nonagon shapes.


so it does , I stand corrected :)
