Lenses / Re: What's your oldest Canon EF lens?
« on: July 22, 2013, 01:55:36 PM »
50mm 1.8 I bought new in 1984 with my "Olympic Edition" AE-1 Program.  Still have the camera too ;)
OP's question was about EF lenses. The lens you mention is obviously FD.

However, you reminded me of the days that I was (ignorant and) about ready for my first SLR. It was 1981 and I was thinking Canon A-1 when the salesman talked me into getting Konica Autoreflex TC. However, when I lost (literally) a Sigma 70-210 a friend talked me into changing system in general (I only had the Konica with a 40mm 1.8). So I got EOS 620 with 35-105 f/3.5-4.5 100-300 5.6 and 420EZ.

It would make sense to be a 39Mpixel body for a 4x4 pixel binning. Even a 5x5 binning corresponds to a ~61Mpixel body!

I knew I should have purchased a 1TB CF card...
;D

If you read the update at the bottom, they used an accelerant to actually get ignition to flames. That's pretty crappy that it wasn't disclosed in the original. It's fine that they used it to get those shots, but it's that they didn't disclose that with the original photographs leading us to believe that it was natural combustion.

As a social Darwin-ish I would like to see other parts of him catch on fire before he has kids
;D  ;D  ;D

The tripod head seems a very simply/cheap one and the lens seems an APS-C zoom...

I have sold my 28-70 f/3.5-4.5 II. But it wouldn't count as my oldest lens.

I have kept my first EF lens: EF35-105 f/3.5-4.5

I also have EF50 1.8 (version 1) and 28mm f/2.8

There was a time when I used to shoot with the 400L f/5.6 ... The most comments I used to get were ... Can you still buy these new? and the old faithful ... why this lens, this dodo doesn't even ZOOM!
Hmmm, they must be dodo themselves!  ;D

However, an interesting answer to them could be that the 400mm f/4L DO is the real DODO lens= Diffractive Optics for Digital Ornithologists  ;D  ;D  ;D

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: first paid gig need help

You just need your 5DMkIII with 24-70 II and flash. You do not need anything else.

I would add a battery pack for the flash to assist in recycling.

When shooting moving kids it is important to have enough depth of field. This combined with the stofen cap will drain a lot of power.

- dual and FAST SD cards (get rid of this expensive stupid and outdated CF junk)

Allow me to politely disagree. If a 5D4 would come with SD card slots only, I would avoid it for that single reason, regardless of anything else.


Sorry for a lame "me too" post...  But yeah, me too.
How about dual CF cards ?   :)  :)

865
Voted: 2 stops of improved and usable ISO performance (low light capabilities). Others are not important to me.
Me too  :)

And, back to our regularly scheduled programming:

How about those ML guys, eh! :D Thanks to all the ML guys for figuring this out and giving us an additional option, for those who find the need for it.
+1 FINALLY ON TOPIC  :)

867
Until a fully featured ML version is compiled and distributed for 5D3 (with 1.2.1 firmware) it is purely theoretical...
So you mean to tell me that this isn't practical without being able to use it with 1.2.1 firmware?
Well I must say as a 1.1.3 user, I appreciate and make use of their hard work on a day to day basis. So I could care less about being able to record through hdmi a horrible 1080 picture on another $800 device that is sold seperately.
Relax! I meant that it is not available yet (irrespective of firmware level)

What I'm looking at...

(sell 60D, 10-22, 70-200, keep 50 b/c why the hell not?)

5D III (toying with the 1D IV for build and speed but perhaps as a second body next year?)
5D III would be my choice! (In fact I do have it and I have not regretted it)

16-35 II (traveling, street, some landscape, group or environmental portraits even)
OK direct replacement of 10-22

70-200 2.8 IS II (everything...weddings, events, portrait, some closer wildlife)
Not so fast. You are coming from a lightweight set. Have you tried 70-200 2.8 IS II? It is heavy!
Plus, your 70-200 is an EXCELLENT lens.


135L (covers my portraits, some street stuff, events/stage stuff)
OK THIS IS PERFECT!

24 1.4L (not as good as the TS but it's more versatile. churches, markets, lowlight, astro)
As you said not so good as the TS. You can forget it for astro. It has HUGE coma!

Plenty of people are actually selling their 35L copies to purchase the new 35mm Sigma.
Where did you get this information?
+1 I do have a 35L 1.4 and I am not selling it. I am not interested in Sigma/Tokina/Tamron/etc...
