The TDP tests, and please correct me if I'm wrong, are center focused and then crops of the corners are from that, so any distortion will make corners extremely soft. If one test the lens focusing on the corners, results may look way sharper.

Just on my way to pick up my spanking new 16-35 f4 from the post office now, nice to see people think it's great. I'm sure I will too  ;)

I bring my 200 L everywhere and usually on camera or if I decide to bring two lenses I keep it on my shoulder in Lowepro Lens Case with an OpTech strap. It fits very accurate so it's not to big compared to a bare lens.

It would be nice to see an absolutely EPIC 35 L II to tag along the 5ds, but we all know it's much more likely we find a huge tribe of Bigfoot having loads of unicorns as pets on small planet guarded by a few Yeti's..

Indeed. I don't believe I would feel very safe in that situation. There are enough respect imposing videos on youtube, of elephants who had enough of safari cars and people and decided to do something about it. But the red eye is a great image and since Edward is still with us, it was worth it :)

And your quite right Eldar, there have been many incidents of Elephants taking exception to vehicles, particularly those made in Japan, in our situation we were careful to observe all the Elephants were either Female, or very young Males that were not in "Musth", and we were driving a Landrover, a Toyota may have pushed them over the edge, it would me   ;).

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: 50mm Art Owners--What firmware version?
« on: February 13, 2015, 02:05:13 AM »
I'm pretty sure it's the latter, it was the same with 35A, and I'm 100% sure it's the same with the 24 A.

I bought mine very early in April last year and it hasn't been updated, checked regularly with the docking.

Was at Wizard World Madison over the weekend and was able to get one of Bruce when he wasn't in the autograph area where they don't allow photos.

My hero! I remember so well when I first saw him fight his own hand in Evil Dead, literally on the floor laughing  :D

Where are all of the messages about how it won't autofocus correctly without sacrificing some virgins and doing a rain dance?


I actually tried that with the 2x35 and 2x50 I had, didn't work, so I will most definitely not buy another one. I'll keep the rest of my virgins, thank you...

Lenses / Re: Where are the new Canon 50mm and 85mm lenses?
« on: February 07, 2015, 05:57:26 PM »
Unless I missed something, I didn't see any mention of a new 50mm in the announcements that will be made tomorrow. :<
Didn't CR say that the lens was mentioned but an announcement would come some time later but not at the same time as the 5Ds and 11-24.
So it seems still everything in plan.

Yesterday's post on CR said it will be a 50/1.8 and not a 50/1.4? That is disappointing if true.
Yep. So I've just pulled the trigger on a 50 Art... let's see if I can live with its AF! ;)

Congrats on the new lens! Best of luck with the AF, buy the docking  ;)

Thanks for the great images, it made the decision to get one much easier. Still searching for a used one, I can't wait to have a go with it.

Just for laughs, anyone know what the size/weight could be if it the lens is everything it is today, but a f2.8 or f2.0?  ;D

BIG DISSAPOINTMENT!

I really believed this would be a game changer. Instead it seems we are getting a 50MP FF 7DII.

I had, for all practical purposes, three major items on my motivation list, in order of priority: DR, Low ISO noise and resolution. I get resolution. I still don't know what to expect from noise, but it seems I can conclude that DR still lags at least 3 stops behind Sony/Nikon. BIG dissapointment.

Bryan is happy to use HDR/bracketing to solve this issue. Animals don't sit still! Insects don't sit still, wind moves trees, leaves, grass, hair etc. etc. The only way to get all information out of a high contrast image is to have sufficient DR. BIG dissapointment!

I was ready to push the preorder button as soon as it turned green. Now I'll spend the weekend going through my gear and figure out what I'll keep and what I'll sell. Unless I get magnificent noise performance, I think I'm done!  >:(

You know what? I agree 100%... I have been very happy, and I still am, with the 1dX, but a 50mp 7d in the new  big splash 5d announcement is just really very very lousy.... That means THIS is the landscape camera they made an effort with, and the 1dx2 and 5d4 will not be better in terms of sensor tech, dr, low iso noise and so on. So the next chance for Canon to catch up is 4-5 years down the line... It's just too much stupid. I'm not in the DR-crowd, but to see the same sensor tech as 2007 is just not good for Canon. And all the people that still didn't leave Canon when the 5d3 came out, I think a lot of them will now. The 11-24 can always be adapted to Nikon ::)

Sorry to say that, but the whole talk you just gave is nothing but nonsense.

Nobody who makes great outstanding images.. nobody.. cares for 1 cent about 1 stop of DR difference.
Only amateurs on internet forums are obsessed with tech talk. THAT is dissapointing for the whole Photography scene.... :(

and why  are we looking after better lenses, higher resolution??

Because people tend to think that can fix their own artistic or technical shortcomings....

That´s actually a quote from a famous Photographer.
Someone who doesn´t care about DR.

After seeing my friend who is superb at landscape shots show me the difference, when doing that stuff, between a Sony A7 (of some sort) and the 5d3 I really got what it means. And if you read my comment I said that I'm not in the market for this at all, the 1dx is perfect as far as far as I concern. But as a gear head, seeing hardly any sensor improvement over the 5d2 is very disappointing.
