Lenses / Re: Verifying USM / Af noise in Canon 24-105 L
« on: April 29, 2013, 09:05:54 AM »
 I tried my 24-105 yesterday on my 5D3 and I noticed that IS was noisier than when it was on my 5D2! But even on 5D2 it was noisier than what it used to be a few months ago  :-\

Having said nice things about my 24-105, I tried it today on my 5D3 and I noticed that IS was noisier than when it was on my 5D2! But even on 5D2 it was noisier than it used to be   :-\

Since I got 24-105 I added 35mm 1.4 L, TS-E24 L II, 135mm 2L to my collection
(plus some other that have completely different focal length). Add to that my already existing EF50 1.8 (version 1) and EF85mm 1.8.

So I do not use it so often as I used to. But still remains useful: As a walk around lens lens when 1 lens is better than no lens at all.
Be that excursions, birthday parties, etc.

I would not sell it.

I have Zeiss Distagon 21mm 2.8 ZE and I love it!

But I also have Canon EF135mm 2L and I love it too. AF is very important at 135mm at least for me. Also, since tt is difficult (although not impossible of course) to improve on this lens as far as IQ is concerned and even if Zeiss prove a little better it won't matter.

So it is Canon's EF135mm 2L for me period. YMMV though...

Lenses / Re: EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x Available Mid 2014?

First, the correct (complete) title of this thread should be:

EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x Available Mid 2014? (CR1)   ;D  ;D

Seriously, apart from the few (my guess) who will need one (and only one) big white that will have to stay continuously on the camera, a 500mm f/4L and a second one with less mm (either 70-200 2.8 or 300 2.8 ) are just fine (and do exist!)

So this update does not address the issue with AF-assist beam lag. Is that a separate update?
+1 I was hoping that they would include that fix too...

I also shoot stills only but I do not consider it a "video" firmware update only.
They will add f/8 autofocus capability after all.

I would keep the 10-22. Unless you plan to get a 16-35 or a 17-40 after you sell the lenses you mentioned.

The 50 1.8 has great value for money (at least I think so for my version 1 EF50mm 1.8 lens. Are you sure you do not want/need it?

I am guessing it would be too much to hope that at least one of them would have a tripod mount.....
>:( I guess you are right!

A tripod mount at the nodal point would be ideal ...

I have a Systematic Series 3 Gitzo (3541LS) but I use it for more than 200mm lenses too. It is 1.7Kg   :)

I am very happy with it (Stability, usability and weight). If you have to choose between the ones you mentioned get the Series 2 Gitzo.

I use the Markins M20 head which is now obsolete (There is the Q20 I think).
Q10 would be the one matching for a Series 2 Gitzo.

If I had to choose a head again though, I would look seriously at an elliptical Arca Swiss head  (I think Z1?)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D MK II Error - Pink Frame

Definitely return it.

I took a few photos using a old cf card, protected two of them and erased the others.  There was no problem, I tried this several times and everything worked.
Since it happened twice, I'd suspect the camera has either a hardware or firmware issue.  It might even be a bent pin in the camera that causes the issue.
I had a similar thought but I had found it scary and disappointing (for the 5DMkIII) at the same time! This is not the first time I read 5DMkIII involved in bent pins  :o
My 5DMkIII is fine but I am very careful when I have to insert a CF. I didn't use to be afraid and pay extra attention with my 40D and 5DMkII (and I removed CF cards a lot).

No offense offence intended.  It appears my attempt at humour may have fallen apartment flat.
Hmm I believe spelling differences are becoming the centre er ... center of this thread  ;D

Maybe there is room for a "Humour" section threads like that could be moved to.   

...and a section for threads where people put a 'u' in words like humor and color.  Oh, wait...we already have one:P

Hmm you cannot imply that you don't appreciate British ... humour  ::)
At least you should add: "no offence  meant" errr... "no offense  meant"   ;D
