Lenses / Re: Have to make a choice, finally!

"A" because it has two Canon best zooms.

Congrats on all new toys - don't have to be pro to buy pro gear, just enjoy it Jack ;)

Both are great for portraits, the 85mm focal length is more versatile, IMO.  135mm is good for individual headshots.  Your signature indicates you have the 70-200 II, f/2 is close, f/1.2 isn't so close.

+1....135L will NOT be able to deliver this bokeh ;)

Lenses / Re: Bought the 300mm 2.8 ii and think its huge

No but i have been doing indoor high school sports and getting into wildlife. Thought I would try is it aince my 70-200 makes me crop too much. I bought it for that purpose but just trying to justify if its worth it or if I should get the 300mm f4 which is cheaper.

No doubt this is one of Canon fastest AF prime, sharp, and very friendly for handheld(wish I can say to my 400mm f2.8 IS II). I shoot indoor swimming twice a month, the 300mm still a bit short for close-up shots for my taste. I went with 400mm and pair it up with my 70-200 f2.8 IS II for longer distance shooting. LOVE IT ;)

I just wonder, it looks like Sigma will have to deliver a lot of Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art lenses.
Are they able to keep up the quality of each of those lenses? They did not have a very great reputation in Quality Assurance.
What is the experience with the Simga 35mm f/1.4 Art?

If there are min & max specs set in production, then I wouldn't worry much about QTY vs time. The 35mm ART seems to receive great feedbacks so far... ;)

Which is the whole point.  With the 5D3/1Dx/1D4/1Ds3 etc., you don't have to use focus/recompose.  Focus/recompose sucks hardcore.

Unless you're the mythical SuperCarl, who's X-ray vision allows him to see through facts as if they aren't even there, and who's powerful lungs can blow hot air all day long.  SuperCarl, who can bend felt with his bare hands, leap tall golfballs in a single bound, and has a 6D that defies the principles of geometry and optical physics.

Neuro, have you come up the title for this poem yet? I'm guessing "SuperCarl" ;D

started with 50/f1.4, then 50L, recently add FE 55mm f1.8, look forward to try the new Sigma ART...I hate 50mm focal lenght ;)

Love the look from both lenses: 200 + 400. Awesome. Thanks for sharing dolina ;)

Here's the black & white in color.

Lenses / Re: What has become of the long-rumored Canon 50mm IS?
« on: April 18, 2014, 09:23:28 AM »
"IS" is great. In prime world, I prefer f1.2 or f1.4 for more creamy bokeh over 3-4stop IS. I do wish for an UWA f4 with "IS" in near future ::)

I didn't even know this thing existed let alone how expensive it is.  I'm curious... how's the image quality?


You gonna need 2-3 people to lift this lens on the tripod: http://www.lensrentals.com/rent/canon/lenses/supertelephoto/sigma-200-500mm-f2.8-ex-dg-apo-for-canon

Do they have f1.4 version?  ;D

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: New Samyang 12mm f2 for EOS-M
« on: April 18, 2014, 01:09:54 AM »
oh that's really cool, I didn't realize 3rd party have started to embrace the M mount!

However, I'm not sure why I would prefer this over Canon's excellent 11-22 IS zoom?

I prefer IS over fast aperture for UWA any day, and AF is just really nice to have, not to mention a convenient range of focal lengths in one lens.

Granted the OEM option likely costs 50%-100% more...

+1....16-35 III with IS would be nice ;)

Lighting / Re: Benefits of a 600RT system ...
« on: April 18, 2014, 12:38:26 AM »
Standard warning here: Speedlites are gateway drugs. If you don't watch yourself, you'll wake up one morning with five 600 RTs next to you in bed and you won't remember how you got there.

 :o :o :o....Although I haven't own any speedlites yet, however, I do understand your concept in my L lens situation ;D

For those interested:

http://www.dpreview.com/news/2014/03/21/samyang-announces-12mm-1-2-0-ncs-cs-wideangle-for-mirrorless#press

Here is one review with Fuji camera: http://www.aps-photo.com/2014/04/rokinon-12mm-f2-0-for-x-mount-a-first-look/

19mm equivalent to FF, which I think is very nice focal lenght for landscape.

Canon EF Prime Lenses / Re: Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM
« on: April 17, 2014, 05:18:53 PM »
Playing about with my daughter's 1100D. I'm surprised by how much latitude there is in the RAW data. I can pull it around much more than I thought would be possible.

This is just one exposure, no flash, shot on the 50/1.4 @ about f2.8. ISO 200
Bokeh looks good. 2008 is when I first got introduced to dslr. 40d and 50mm f1.4
