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.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 1D X Troubles (not funny)
« on: April 29, 2014, 03:05:52 PM »
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 ;)

I have been doing quite a bit of homeworks on studio light Vs Speedlites. After getting ton of WONDERFULL advices & feedbacks from CR members, I decided to go with Speedlites.

I recently got this package for $1650:
1. Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT, QTY: 3
2. Canon ST-E3-RT Transmitter, QTY:1
3. Some Westcott umbrellas & softboxes

I also bought this Westscott combo: Triple Threat Real Deal Review
