Lenses / Re: Canon TS-E 17mm f/4L Tilt-Shift Lens - your thoughts?
« on: April 09, 2014, 07:09:18 PM »
Thanks for your feedbacks gent's.

Prior writing this topic, the only thing that make me think twice is non AF. This could be a huge issue for me. My current 16-35 II is fine when shooting at smaller apertures f11 or smaller. However, there are times I need to shoot indoor f4 to 5.6, the IQ is quite not same.

Another Q: is there any tilt-shift with AF?

Thanks surapon for sample photos. Those tall buildings look great with tilt-shift.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Fuji Full Frame X-PRO2 coming 2015

Wont happen. Fuji barely built up its X lens lineup, so they wont start a new one that soon. I was told by a Fuji rep. that they barely break even with the Xpro line right now, and that FF Xtrans sensors cost nearly the same as the whole rest of the camera. An X200 with larger sensor is much more possible.

That why I sold my x100s and went with A7r, FF sensor. Fuji came out great crop body size, about same size as 4/3 sensor . And now, Sony came out A7 series. The camera body size is about same as Fuji x1.6 crop & OM-D E-M5 4/3. To survice, Fuji needs to respond ASAP. Mirrorless market is not that big - at least not yet.   

To me, the #1 reason people going for mirrorless is size and weight. Mirrorless system doesn't need a complete lens system as DSLR - UWA, 35 to 85mm and macro - done. No need 24-70 f2.8, 70-200 f2.8, 300mm, 400mm etc...

FF + same body style like: X100s, XT-1, or X-e2 = count me in. I LOVE the look, feel and all layouts from x100s. FF + UWA + 35 or 50mm...I'm good to go ::)

You forgot the portrait KING, Canon 85L II

Last night I dreamt of discovering I owned an 85L. It was pretty sweet until I woke up  :'(


Start with a simple dream, work hard & save up and get to it ;)

Look at my signature, you can see I have tried this method many times. It works ;D

the 50A is available in shanghai mid next month I'm definitely going to get this as soon as it comes out :)

Lucky you :o

Real life photo samples are greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

for sure, i've been using the 35 on my eos M alot lately and forgot how much i liked the 50mm range since i had stopped using all my other 50's because... well they suck but i'm super pumped to get a 50 like this on the 5Dmk3 gonna tell the sigma store to put me down for the first one that comes in :D

Size and weight are not small, IQ must be good. This could be my very 1st Sigma lens ;)

PS. I'll be in Shanghai mid July. I'll have a weekend off. My plan is to visit great wall & forbidden city. Wanna have few beers?
yeah sure i'll pm you my phone number and we can catch up, but you do know the great wall and forbidden city are in beijing right? I have a few friends in beijing and havent been for a while and i always like the great wall and forbbiden city for photo walks done both many times.

Just added you to my "buddy list". I'll contact you once the trip is CONFIRMED.

Yes, understood Great Wall & FC are in Beijing. I'll fly from LAX to Shanghai, then back to Shenzen to end my business trip. It's more likely to fly from Shenzhen to Beijing friday afternoon.

I'm thinking Great Wall on saturday and F.C on Sunday ::)

My last trip to China, we visited Guilin; http://www.dylanphotography.phanfare.com/6473514

PS. The new Shenzhen airport is beautiful ;)

Come on, be a bit more ingenious with the comments on the Sony A7s.

"With no sign of release in the near future, no internal 4k, and no pricing the Sony a7s seems to be a no go for video at this point."

Ok, writing such a comment is ok if you're a Canon fan-boi and looking to put other vendors down but it is pretty disingenuous as there is a LOT of off-camera video recording done already. e.g. look at the SDI outputs on Panasonic's 4K unit, SDI outputs on Canon's C500 for 4K, etc. Are you trying to say that vendors put in ports for external recording but expect nobody to use them? I think not. Similarly the "no sign of release in the near future" is just dumb. Canon was far worse with the 1DX.

Step it up a bit guys ...

More rebels to come ;)

I'll get one if the "s" has similar AF system as A6000.

+1

And in body 6-axis 4-stops IS.
And they can cut out the video cr*p on my copy. :-)

No A6000 AF system. However, be able shoot at high ISO got me interested ::)

I was hoping to see some UWA...dam it >:(

Very nice review Dustin!

It is good to see an image and photography based review, rather than chart porn
. I have the Sigma and despite it´s phenomenal sharpness, I can relate to all your concerns and worries and why you decided not to get one. Clinical is a descriptive word.
