I have been less than a minialist for 2 years with 20D plus 17-40mm L. That will fit 90% of my need. After that I got a used 35-135mm.

Thanks for the info. Out of all the lenses in the list that is faster than 1.2, only the Canon 50mm 1.0L is for DSLR, the rest are for range finder. The canon 1.0 has been discontinued for the reason stated in the article. the article re-enforce about the difficulty of making a fast 50mm DSLR lnes. Even Nikon made the 1.2 SLR lens in 58mm, not 50mm.
For what its worth, there are a few fast m43 lenses. Eg the Voigtlander 25mm/0.95 and the Noktor 50mm/0.95. These are both comparatively small. The Noktor is also quite affordable.
here are som lenses that is faster then 1,2 http://blog.digitalrev.com/2010/08/15/5-fast-50mm-lenses-that-are-worth-selling-a-kidney-for/Thanks for the info.

50mm 0.75Dream on!!! If Canon can make it...
Didn't they already, in the 60s? Or was that someone else...? (they've had a 50/1.0 EF-mount, and i'm pretty sure a 50/0.95 at some point).
But yeah, goes against the "realistic" specification either way.
I'd love to buy a new camera for my lady.I suggest you try out the cameras on casual portratit in day light. My experience is that different manufacturer ( even camera from the same manufacturer)will give you different skin tone. Some are slightly pale and greyish for my taste. For the small size, the S95 or the S100 difinitely wins hands down.
She has a suuuuper old Pana/leica (dont recall the name) and she loves to take pictures but the DSLR route is not in thoughts because of weight and size. She wants quality yet pockability and versatility.
She had her eyes on a G12 some months ago but I kinda pushed her on the s95 way since it's a marvellous compact camera.
but today I saw a sale on the new olympus pen mini...ohhh boy, it's beautiful and I love olympus.
I thought of Pen EP3 or even the 2 but it's waaay to expensive and too big for her tastes.
Ssssso, what you guys suggest me?
(s95), s100, G12 or the new pen mini??
s95 being in brackets because after this review I have no doubt about the 100.
Hope you can help me out guys
Cheers and thanks neuro for the review
50mm 0.75Dream on!!! If Canon can make it, it may weight over 4 lbs, with a 110mm filter and sells for over $10,000. Would you like to have 6 to 7 pounds of camera plus lens hanging on your neck all day long???
The 1DX was designed and built for professional photographers and they have very specific needs that don't necessarily have anything to do with hobbyists, amateurs, advanced amateurs or just the general public.
In a perfect world Canon would market the next 7D for pros and leave the 70D and below to the hobbyists and amateurs. If they did (again in a perfect world) we would see a cropped version of the 1Dx sensor in the next 7D. This is my wish and it would be awesome! I remember when the 7D came out people were raving how it was a mini-1D, why not keep the tradition alive?
Why would that represent a perfect world? Why would a cropped version of the 1DX sensor necessitate marketing only to pros?
My dream lens is a 7-800mm f/1.2 IS that weighs 1/4 pound and has perfect sharpness all over and cost $20 US. If they can make a little robot that flies to mars and drives around doing science experiments there is NO reason why my dream lens can't happen.
Sooner or later if humans don't extinct themselves first, optics will move into the field of organics and genetic engineering. Think something like, a cloned eagle eye developed in a laboratory. So sooner or later you'll likely get your wish, just maybe not in the form you originally had in mind. Don't laugh, it's probably not even as far away as we might imagine, and it would probably lend itself better to a DIY project than grinding your own glass with a dremil.
Rear Window is another of my favourite "camera" movies with James Stewart showing his photographic prowess. Just googled it and found it is an "Exakta" that he uses. Product placement hasn't really helped LF camera sales or Exakta. Do people pay much attention to it?
Okay, while everyone waits for the announcement (or possibly non-announcement) of a new DSLR, I thought I'd start a new topic for entertainment purposes.Nowadays ,Moviemaker is doing "hiden Advertisement "also. The movie make show off the product in the movie plot with pre-agreement thet the manufacture will pay a fee to the movie maker. As you examplesays , all binoculars and cameras are Nikon (except one sceene). If it is not prearranged, I cannot think of any other reason.
New movie out in the U.S. "The Big Year" is a semi-comedy about competitive bird watching. I couldn't help but notice the incredible job of product placement done by Nikon. Basically, everyone in the movie (aside from one scene using an Olympus) was using a Nikon camera or Nikon binoculars usually with a Nikon-branded strap prominently displayed.
I didn't see a single Canon in the movie. Just a coincidence I'm sure.
I don't know what models of DSLRs they were using, but I was amazed at the pictures they all seemed to capture, especially since most of them seemed to be using kit lenses. I guess I must be doing something wrong.
So, let's have some fun. What's your favorite/most amusing/most preposterous film scene involving a camera? What clever photo product placements have you seen in the movies or on television recently?
