These images are from raw to jpeg, I have done nothing except sharpening and a ColorChecker color profile in Lr.

Want to add that although she appears to stand still, she is all over ;oP





Looks like 85L II @ f1.4 with faster AF, Viggo ;)

I found the time to run it through Focal today. In general I was a bit skeptical when I saw the spread/setting. Compared to for example the 85/1.2L II, it was not good. But I have now shot about 100 single shots (AF set to one shot) and almost every single one has been properly focused. Every shot has been at f1.4 and the majority has been shot indoors in not-well-lit surroundings. I was really skeptical, given my not so good experience with the 35 Art, but in stead I am actually quite impressed. But I was impressed with the 35 also. It took some time before I got quite inconsistent results, so I´ll await the champagne popping for a while.

I hope to have time this weekend to shoot something worth posting. I´ll also try to find time to do some direct comparison with the Otus.

Music to my ears Eldar  ;)

I need to sell my 50L first.... ;D

wow..  :) can't imagine you'll do that  :) it's nice to hear that this lens is so capable

I was just kidding about selling my 50L :P

I'll order the 50 art and give it a try - decision will be made once I hand on both lenses ;)

Use this sensor to FF mirrorless, similar to Sony A7 series body size ;)

I doubt I'm the only one in CR want a Canon FF mirrorless + some pancakes ;)

Got mine today, just ran it through FoCal with my normal setup. It said +19 at 50x the focal length, and it said +3 at 25x focal length. Ran it through the AF (in)consitency test and it shoots three or so shots then the forth shot it drops completely oof. Ending up with a consistency of 92,6%.

I will do the whole test again now, need a coffe first. And I'll posting my findings.

Does anyone know if the "different distance afma" works for me? I mean, +3 at 1,25m and +19 at 5 meters, can that be plotted in to the lens via docking so it changes the afma automatically after the distance I focus on?

Dissapointment so far, but still early.

WOW... :o

hope things will work out ;)

Lighting / FlashPipe flash diffuser - your thoughts?

Hi guys,
Any thoughts on this flash diffuser? It looks clean.

Actually... I don't care about 50L v 50 art as much as I care about 50 art v 85L mkii.

So if anyone wants to compare those...

Sounds like apple Vs orange

It seems very powerful and compact pwp :)

I added the links to my fav, just in case my speedlites 600(x3) setup doesn't have enough juice.

Maybe I can just tape a magnifying glass to the front or something?

Your 1D X came with a body cap.  Take it off, drill a small hole (slightly less than 1mm in diameter, a 1/32" drill bit would work) right through the first n in Canon, then put it back on.  You'll be good to go.

Of course, you won't be the first to do that with a 1-series body.   ;)

@ Neuro. You need to be very careful when you do this, otherwise, you might create "light leak"  ;D

just got mine!

First one in Shanghai and probably china :P

awesome and evening is approaching!

Fire up a sample thread, I'll join in tomorrow. Congrats on your new lens!

CONGRATS,
It looks like x-mas came early for you guys ;)

Couple things when you guys test this ARTY: AF consistency, focus shift, sharpness, bokeh, color, contrast.... ;D ;D ;D Ok...I'm asking too much :-X

Can't wait to see more photos

trying to upload photos now but its taking forever!
AF consistancy so far looks ho hum to me I've only had it a few hours but feel its front focusing a bit I also bought the dock and obviously can AFMA it with focal when i have time. Its not so far out that its ruining shots though
consistancy is hard as i've only been shooting in low light so its a bit hit and miss anyway

no focus shift i can see but it breathes a fair bit if that matters to you

sharpness = OMG its insane

bokeh = as above plus even more insane you will see in the pics i post

colour  =  awesome

contrast = a little less contrasty than the 35 but still nice and a tweek in LR away so no issue really.

so watch the lens gallary thread i made as my images go up. I'm uploading now

So sharpness is good as my 50L ;D....Just Kidding ;D ;D ;D

Sounds like I need to order one from BH ;)
