So I guess the 35 L II Is no where still.. I was kind of hoping for it in early 2015, but the again, I was hoping for early 2006 (when it already was old), 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 also...

So let's face it, you're only going to buy this lens if you don't already have a 16-35.  So who has 3K for an extra 5mm?

5mm from 16 to 11 is a bit more than from 300 to 305mm... It gives an extreme perspective not seen before and the corner quality will be epic which is essential, and that is expensive. I won't buy it, but have no doubt it will be a fantastic lens.

Had the 50 Art back from service now two days, haven't really tried it enough yet, but so far so good (not sure if I should even say that out loud). I'm going to make my own neoprene cover over the whole lens, IF dust was the issue.

Lenses / Re: Purple fringing of 85 1.2ii
« on: January 12, 2015, 02:11:47 PM »
One of the reasons I sold my last copy of the 85 was fringing and corner performance when I started to compare it to the 50 Art. There really isn't ONE thing I like better about the 85 L II vs the 50 Art. But that's me and it's a different focal length.

Where are the XXD Cams that meets these (AF, MP,...) specifications?

Perhaps when Canon feels threatened by Nikon in that segment, instead of feeling secure as the market leader?

"Press release: Inspired photos with flair"

Wasn't that the press release for the 300mm f/4 VC DO PF?  Except that they misspelled that last word...   ;)

My point exactly! The d750 with its internal flare issue.

My 50 Art is in the mail, they claim it's fixed, but all they did was "clean HSM-unit", so monday or Tuesday I'll find out if it did the trick or not..

Fwiw I use my Godox ad360 with a ProFoto 3' Octa RFi that I am VERY happy with. Excellent light quality and built to last. I use it with the ProFoto Speedlite Speedring.

I use my light mainly out and about with the kids.

Had two 35 Art with utterly useless AF. bought the 50 Art, completely useless, got a new one under warranty, it worked for 6 months, now same AF issue as the three other Art lenses. Got the report from my service shop today; "cleaned HSM unit". I'm like , yeah! That'll work...

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: New firmware for 1DX ?
« on: January 07, 2015, 12:13:37 PM »
I wouldn't get too excited over these as both updates appear to be minor "dot" releases which typically contain very small changes.  They could be something as simple as corrections to the translations of menu wordings for specific languages, which is a common minor fix.

I also think that, but don't say it out loud, I lying to my self and say it's something cool still.  ::)

"Press release: Inspired photos with flair" they introduced that "feature" in D750, see what I did there? ::)

A shot from today's outing with the kids, I was planning on shooting them, but lucky me I didn't bring the 24-70, but the trusty 200 f2. Shot wide open as the sun was setting. I have 20 shots in this burst and they are pretty much all tack sharp on the head. The original shot was a tad brighter, but I got better punch in the color if I underexposed a little.

Sorry to see this discussion...it seems we are still  waiting for a really good all around 50mm.

Both yes and no, mine worked for 6 months and it's been extremely consistent and so perfect it makes most other lenses look like you won them on a vending machine. And the AF and tracking have been as good as the 2470 II. But if it only lasts a few months, that is quite a big issue, I agree. If I had known the working copy would also stop functioning I would have given up on it way back in April.

This is the last chance it gets ..

Lenses / Re: Focus asymmetry - Canon 50mm 1.2 L

Here you never pay for calibration as long as you have a receipt and the lens is less than 7 years old, and that's not cps. I once had to pay for a 35 L and it vas 100 usd.. 240 usd seems crazy, and specially if the issue remains unsolved.
