surapon, I believe you are the only one on CR have this disease ;D

No comment on the UWA lens, I think your 17-40 will be fine ;) Bring a tripod and keep that aperture f11 to f16. Enjoy your trip and don't forget to share your photos ;)

I don't recall shooting f5.6 on my 50L, ever. As many already said...."this is hate/love lens". The focus shift pushed people away from 50L @ smaller apertures. For those, whose have mastered the skills, the 50L will remain the their bag ;)

Imagine a 5D4 with the next-gen of the D800 sensor...
I'd rather not.
Me, too.  I bet my new 64GB Sandisk Extreme CF card would only hold about 100 photos  ;) :o

That's what Small JPGs are for…   :P

PROs don't shoot JPEGs ;D

Perhaps us old-timers think differently, but what I want in a camera is reliability and the ability to take good pictures easily.  I'm amazed at the number of folks that need a new camera every couple years.  I would rather have a camera that lasts for as long as possible - cameras are expensive!

I had the original digital rebel since it was introduced.  I only bought a new Canon 6D when the AF started going wacky.  It still took pictures that were plenty good enough for outdoor use.  I don't need   more megapixels, higher ISO, more than 1 AF point, or many of the newfangled bells and whistles.  If you like bells and whistles, check out the Sony.  If you want a camera that lasts 10 years, has an excellent lens lineup, and takes excellent photos than you can stick with old-reliable Canon.

I disagree

I'd say it's worth $50 to go from a 580EX II to a 600EX-RT.  The Canon RT system is easy to use, and most importantly, it's reliable.  If you shoot with the flash on-camera with a longer lens, the head zoom of 200mm vs. 105mm is a nice feature.  Also, if you change settings on the flash, the display on the 600 is much nicer than the 580.

I remember when I labored over buying a 50 mm f1.8 for $75.  Now I'm upgrading for functions I won't initially use.  So weird.

I hate to lose sleep over penny. Your decision of getting 85L II  been years. As I recalled correctly, we had this conversation way before my 85L II purchase.

I already have ton of photos from 85L II  :P   Get it JD ;)

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 ;)
