A follow up to my post from yesterday. According to the info I have, this woman got her first camera in 2012 and she´s shooting with a 135 2L lens. I got my first SLR 39 years ago and I would have been tremendously proud of a portfolio like this. Enjoy!

Thanks for sharing Eldar

Indeed - AMAZING. I just booked mark her site for future photos.

"It was also confirmed that “a lot” of lenses were coming this year"  - my source has confirmed one of these lenses will be 16-35 III. IQ is Better than Nikorrr 14-24 f2.8 ;D

@ OP

As an owner both these lenses in the past, I would take 17-55 over 24-105 anytimes. The 17-55 is one of the best lenses for crop in Canon lineup. The 17-55 reminds me of my current Canon 24-70 f2.8 II.

@ OP

24-70 II is a great lens for general shooting. The 24-70 lenght doesn't have the "wow" factor that you get from UWA lenses. I sold my 16-35 II for lower IQ reason. I do plan to add Canon 14mm in near future.

a few more ISO 6400 samples

I was testing out A7 & A7R with Zeiss 55mm f1.8 yesterday @ local Sony store. I'm now leaning more to A7R + Zeiss 55mm over my original plan A7 & 55mm. I'm not DR or pixelpp guy, however, looking at JPEG photos from A7R, I'm REALLY impressed. In term of AF speed, I didn't see the diff between A7 and A7R when shooting with Zeiss 55mm + Zeiss 35mm.

If Canon 600mm II wasn't on my wishlist for this year or so, I would be shooting with A7r + Zeiss 55mm f1.8 at this moment

DAM "G.A.S" ;D

Monopod will help since this lens doesn't have IS. The monopod is quite easy carry around and is light. Even @ 400mm, I think it might not be long enough for bird, unless you plan to do decent cropping.

Here are some photos with 400mm f2.8 IS II on 5D III. I was about 20-25ft away from the squirrel:

As much as I love my 50L II, I will give this 50mm ART a try - I'm impressed with Sigma 35mm art

I seemed to have missed the announcement of the new 50 L  8)

I was on my 4th glass of red wine last night when typing that statement ;D

Given your needs, the 24-70 would be the best choice.  The 135 is a great lens, but is quite long for most event shooting unless you're a good 30+ feet from the subject (i.e. back of the church, across the room, or behind the first couple of rows of tables at a reception).  The 70-200 (2.8 or 4) IS is going to be better for events, too, as subject motion isn't usually a big deal so IS works well.  The 24-70 is also much more versatile, as you say.  The 135 is best for headshots and candid photos, and while it was my first L (for headshots), it's probably not a great lens to buy until you've got the basics covered.

+1 with mackguyver on the 24-70 lens. Looking at OP gear, the 24-70 fits well.

5D MK III Sample Images / Re: Post your favorite camera gear here
« on: January 15, 2014, 12:22:10 AM »
All time sentimental favorite camera is a black body 1974 Canon FTb-n with the FD 50 f1.4 breech-lock lens.  It's my first 35 and the camera that got me hooked on photography.  Next favorite is the Canonet GIII QL17 (40mm 1.7).  Both are simple, manual, nothing fancy, tough, no battery required (except for the meter) cameras that were fun to use.

But, my current favorite is the 5D3 with the 70-200 f2.8L II.  Never ceases to amaze me what this body can do in tough situations.  (Shh...a year ago, the 7D was the favorite that didn't cease to amaze.)

I'm in late 30. I got into photography 5yrs ago. I don't know much about film camera, but I LOVE the look of old-vintage camera bodies.

I wish Canon would make some FF mirrorless, looks like your "Canonet GIII QL17". I will be the first one on pre-order list :)

@ OP - looking at signature, I don't see any fast primes, macro, and UWA lenses yet. You are far away from done :P
