Lenses / Re: I'm done - I have all the lenses I need

There is no treatment for G.A.S yet. It tends to spread to bigger, faster, better and of course more $$$ in the future.

Since Neuro is a Dr.,  he can explain this better I'm ;D
I see that you have succumbed to it again with the 400.  The 300 wasn't long enough, eh? I can understand but still prefer the smaller size & lighter weight of the 300.  My plan is to start saving for the 800 5.6 II ;D

YES, I did ;D

As you mentioned before, 300 is a wonderful lens and I'm 100% agree. The only reason I went with 400 is I need little more reach. The 400 is good as 300 in term of IQ & AF speed, but the weight feels much heavier :-\

800 sounds awesome mackguyver. I would love to add the 600 sometime next year or two - unless Canon releases better. I'm start saving now ;)

Okay, I crumbled.  I LOVED my 50 f/1.2 and missed it terribly so I just bought another one.  The good news is that with the rebate, it becomes a net/net purchase vs. my eBay sale :)

In other news, I strongly predict that the 50 f/1.2 II will be announced tomorrow :o

Ha ha... that's hilarious that the thread you started saying that you were done with lenses, ends with you buying a new lens.  I know the feeling.  Once my lens collection was where i wanted it to be, I got the "I should get a Fuji x100s" itch because it looks so cool ha ha.
Well, it is "technically" re-buying a lens I once owned, but yeah, I had to confess on CR :-[
You no longer have the lenses mentioned at first post. So I am afraid you ... lost  ;D
You succumbed to the lens temptation, you relapsed, you had a moment of weakness  ;D  ;D  ;D

P.S (Re-)Enjoy your new lens  :)
P.S2 You are still not ... done  :)  :)  :)
Yep, I lost (see below) - and I will re-enjoy my new lens - it's on the UPS truck for delivery today -thanks ;D

Canon General / Re: Review - Canon EF 85mm f/1.8

As someone who doesn't specialize in portraits, my heart skipped a few beats when I hit the "Submit Order" button for this lens.

+1....same here, but on 400mm f2.8 IS II ;D

Back to 85 f1.8 Vs 85L II. Compared to TWI by Dustin Abbott, my PP skill is no where near him, but still, the 85L II brought me quite amazing photos. The creamy bokeh of 85L II is priceless. Another Canon lens that can really match that creamy bokeh is 200mm f2.

Software & Accessories / Re: how do you transfer your images?
« on: December 30, 2013, 11:52:50 AM »
For CF cards, I use a FW800 or ExpressCard/34 reader, for SD an ExpressCard/34 reader.  Faster transfer rates, and the cards are more portable than the camera (the cards can go in my work satchel, the 1D X won't fit  ;) ).

But, the main reason I use an external reader is because the card needs to come out of the camera - it serves as a backup until the images on it are copied to multiple external drives in two separate physical locations.

+1...Same method as Neuro. I have 3 external HDs. I'm happy with this: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/867611-REG/Lexar_lrw025urbna_Multi_Card_25_in_1_USB_3_0.html

"I want to tell myself it’s a viable alternative to the 85mm f/1.2L II when that  just simply isn’t true. It lacks the magical “feel” of the images that the 85 1.2L II produces. Of course, “Magic” comes at quite a cost"

100% agree with statement above. Still, this is a good lens for those want to try Canon primes. Wish my 85L II has same AF speed as f1.8

Brand New Canon 85mm f1.8 @ BH is selling $319: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/find/cart.jsp

People selling 135L on CL for low $800.

I took over 1000 photos last holidays with 50 & 135 combo ;)
