Lenses / Re: Hold out for EF 35/2 IS or jump in with classic 35 1.4L

It doesn't seem that the new 35/2 IS would be a replacement for the 1.4.... Am I wrong??
Plus, the f/1.4L has better weather sealing and durability.
The 35mm f/1.4L does not have weather sealing.

Bodies come and go, but good glass should last for 20 years or more.

Unless we see raw files taken at exactly the same studio conditions the only thing we learn is that the jpeg engine is better at 6D.

I dunno. Without seeing the exhaust outlet on that lens or knowing if the landing gear is retractable- the aerodynamics don't appear favourable  to qualify as "fast".
Unless we are looking it the other way and the lens is a ... rocket exhaust  ;D

 were taken into LR with default adobe profile and exported in jpg
Maybe it's because you imported Raw files to LightRoom and used LR to make a jpg and you didn't use  Canon's jpegs out of the box. Don't worry. Just check the histogram and shoot to the right.

Your SS were at 1/1600 and 1/2500.  Unless you have a valid reason shooting at those speeds, IMHO, the fast SS was the undoing of those images (not the camera nor the sensor per se).  Images in general get a lot of random noise when exposed at high SS and high ISO. http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/image-noise.htm
Sorry but you said it in reverse. High shutter speed is the oposite of Long Exposure (= Very low Shutter Speed = many seconds) that is shown in the article you mentioned.

The 24-70 F/4L is more DOA than previously imagined.
;D Very true.

So how does anyone with a 5D3 think these compare to the 5D3 in comparable conditions?

The OP mentioned there is no PP in these pics, therefore, I say the 5D III is not quite near 1D X in term of high ISO. On 5D III, 12000ish ISO will require some NR in LR, but it's doable. I can say anything lower than 6400ISO, 5D III is really good.

Hopefully couple years from now, the price of 1D X will go down a bit. I might have enough money to get one. ::)  Until then, I'll stick around with my 5D III.
Well maybe not in two but in three years from now the new 5DMkIV will beat the 1Dx at high ISO but a few months later the 1Dx II will strike back and put 5DMkIV to second place.  And so on and on ;D

Software & Accessories / Re: Ugrade 50D and 5DII 1.5 stops ISO for $99?
« on: November 19, 2012, 01:00:06 PM »
It's the same thing with lightroom. From 2 to 3 and 3 to 4 I won 1 stop in iso setting on a given camera with each update. And I can say 5D3 in high iso with lightroom 4 is amazing. I made some pics wth 12800 in the dark outside and several people came and told me that the flash is broken...  ::)
;D  ;D

1. When do you think the 1st FF mirrorless will arrive - for $3000 or less of course?

2. Which company will bring to the market first? Sony, Nikon, Samsung, Fujitsu etc….I will not bet on Canon
If I were to guess I would say Sony. But  I am not interested. My Canon system with many lenses and 2 FF cameras (5DMkII and 5DMkIII) is more than enough.

Tron,
I visit CMs in Asia 5-6 times per year. It's nice to have FF mirrorless for travel ;)
?

Lens Rentals will have M9's for 3000$. So, very soon.  ;D
;D Unless the question becomes  "When do you think the 1st FF AF mirrorless will arrive"  ;D

50L.  A TS-E 17 or 24 might be better for landscapes than the 16-35L II.
+1000 Since I got these 2 TS-E lenses I haven't used my 16-35L I. I haven't decided on selling it though...

ALMOST ready for signing the divorce papers
Not necessary! How about buying her an expensive present ?  ::)

With my wife, a divorce would be cheaper . . . we save on EVERYTHING but when it comes to wants, she goes right for the mainstream top (not necessarily better).  I shut her up about an LV bag though . . . I said "Okay, jewelry or an expensive bag" -- haven't heard a peep since :D

I'll be going to work this Friday anyhow (I'm a 99% online shopper as well) -- I've got a good job, just not with regard to days off. 

The last few years for presents, I went with straight cash to my grandmother (who can use it more than anything else) and useful stuff for other relatives, like brake replacements.  It's not as ooh-ahh as something shiny, but it's one less bill for them I figure.
Then I guess either jewelry or an expensive bag can compensate to an EOS1Dx? (at least if you add the total value of jewelry bought recent years  ;)
