Reviews / Re: Review - Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG Art
« on: January 22, 2015, 01:35:14 PM »
Nice review, Justin.  It's not a perfect lens, and it is too big, but it would still be my choice at the moment for a reasonably affordable 50mm prime.

I am still waiting for Canon to bring us an equivalent of the 35IS in a 50mm.  If it was similarly sized and performed similarly, it would be be my choice.

Thanks! I'm not so concerned with weight since so much of my work is commercial and I pack pretty heavy all-around (lenses are the least of my worries). Though I can't stack it like I can my Canon 50 1.4 & 15 2.8 Fisheye :P

It will be interested to see what Canon delivers in the prime territory. Their wider-angle options have been more consumer based and haven't interested me in the slightest these past few years.

So I'm not the only one waiting for the 35 L II?  8) according to the time I have been waiting, it seems Canon think I'm the only one  :P

I am to puzzled by this and also why the new lenses aren't sealed. I just had my 50 art serviced for a squeaky sound and unstable AF. And it's better now, so obviously the AF motor had dust and dirt. Now I have cut apart and old neoprene laptop sleeve and wrapped the 50 to keep the dust away.

The one lens I will NEVER sell. Absolutely unique.

Clean the front? No problem, the front glass is a protector like a uv filter, and not that expensive to replace. I have only wiped my lens after heavy rain when the glass is covered in droplets.

I honestly think sometimes to sell my 200 2.0 to get 300 2.8ii. I didn't have actual experience with 300 2.8ii but I've read it's a truly unique lens. I may need to get it as a CPS loan.

I started out by upgrading the 300 f4 to the 2.8 IS I, and I never found a use for 300, to short for birds and too long for people and kids, so even as great as it was I didn't use it. The 200 length is just right for me and I can use it for anything, and I LOVE that extra stop of light.

Just take a note of your settings and reset the camera, or copy settings from one of the working ones.

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...
