Technical Support / Re: Repairing Scratches - 5D MKIII
« on: January 05, 2013, 12:39:26 AM »
Hey guys

Recently had my MKIII out on a bit of a rough shoot and have a couple of annoying small scratches that have gone through the black body - any idea where I can get these repaired?

Thanks

You should be happy - you finally got a reason to upgrade to 1DX

On my 1D4 the 135L focusses very quickly and accurately. This lens is simply great value for money.

There's always the option to put tape over certain pins to enable the AF. You can for sure google the instructions on that trick...

Thank you guys! For now I'll go for a Zeiss prime 35mm 2.0 or 1.4, and I'll rent some other primes when needed for a shoot. Any comments on the 35 2.0 or 1.4?

There is a thread somewhere comparing the two Zeiss 35's with the Canon 35L.

I bought the Zeiss 35 F.2 because I loved the 50 and wanted something light and small.

My 300 f2.8L IS II is super sharp and produces great colours.

I would also recommend the 21mm. Borrowed it once from a colleague and fell in love immediately.

It seems the 200mm F/2L is the most desired lens here.  ;D

If the average photographer were 11 meters tall, then the 600mm would probably be the most desired lens. And so it makes sense that, since we're mostly under 2 meters, a 200mm is the most desired. And even the 200mm sounds like it's heft is a bit of a limitation.

The F2.0 adds to its attractiveness a bit as well

Tested the RX100 in Cyprus for a week - when I don't need AF in broad daylight I won't bother bringing along my 1D4 any more... ;-)

?? Are you trying to say the AF on the RX100 doesn't work in broad daylight? Confused.

It does work in broad daylight but I was referring to fast moving objects where I would need the AF speed of a DSLR.

I was using both the 24-105L and 24L II on 7D/550D and did find the 24mm to be limiting on the wide end - was always using my 16-35L II instead but since I got my 1D4 I am really in love with the 24L II, prefer it over the 16-35L II.

Hey,

I am not a professional photographer, but I would like to buy a nice portrait lens. I have a full frame body (1ds mk3) so I am considering the following lenses:

Canon 85 1.8
Sigma 85 1.4
Zeiss 85 1.4

Which would you recommend and why? Do you think it is better to go with the 135L ?

85L is over my budget and is to slow...

Thanks

Tomaz

Zeiss 85 F1.4 for sure

I am quite happy with the Gary Fong equipment I got.
