You can use something like this on your belt (I am not intending to advertise this particular piece or shop, just I bought this a few months back and found the link easily)......

Thanks, I have one like that, mine folds and folds, I like it a lot, but I'll try to find something for my strap for just that one filter.

Sorry, you need for just one filter, then get a fishbomb..... no I am not kidding search FishBomb ...

Thanks!

I'm still waiting for mine, but a question here, when you pull it out and insert the clear filter, do you have any clever way, like a small pouch hanging on the strap to switch fast or something? When it's just to pull out, I can see myself changing it often in some situation where I have had to live with the lost light with the screw in filters.

Reviews / Re: Review - Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM

I just sold my 35 L today, and no, I will not replace it with a siggy, I have something else in mind.  8)


Pray tell.  Zeiss 35 f/1.4 Distagon perhaps?

Nope, it was the 200 f2.0 L  :) and besides the fact the AF was pretty hopeless and it suddenly was full of sand and dust and the focusing ring made a grinding sound and it's now off on repair, it's the best lens by very far, I have ever used.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D Mk 3 and 1D Mk IV raw images
« on: September 09, 2013, 09:22:23 AM »
I've owned the 1d4 from the first batch here and had until I bought the 5d3 in march last year. The 1dX I've owned since august last year and to question the IQ difference is to me just to argue to argue to argue  :P

No doubt that the 5d is better than the 1d4, with sharpness, I can give edge to the 1d4, but color and noise is way better on the 5d3. For me personally a fullframe picture is always preferred because I like the shallow dof and smooth, clean rendering. I demands more of a lens, but the best lenses shines much more on a FF camera. The AF system is also the biggest factor in getting a sharp image when you're shooting anything that can't be done with MF (and my guess is, if you buy a 1d4 or 5d3, you're not into MF) and there also, the 5d3 is way better, especially tracking subjects and when the light dims a bit where I found the 1d4 to be pretty poor.

Then there's the 1dx.. It's the only camera I have ever been completely satisfied with, it's truly remarkable and it IS better then the 5d3, better sharpness, more accurate color (less noise when using ColorChecker-correction) much less noise at even moderate iso values and better DR. I can work the files harder without them collapsing. That on top of everything else that's better with it than the two others is what makes such an amazing tool to use.

More depth is because of a smaller sensor, more pop might be because of a
Weaker AA filter...

Congrats! One of top three zooms ever made, after my 200 f2 decided to screw me over I really miss it. The AF will blow your mind :D

Lenses / Re: Can 24-70/2.8 II replace 35/1.4?
« on: September 05, 2013, 09:09:52 AM »

I think I'm with that girl.  I'm probably weird, but I don't find 24-70 zooms very appealing.  They're nowhere near versatile enough in focal length for me (for versatility my 24-105 is more useful), and within their rather narrow range zooming with your feet makes as much sense.  I would rather cover that range via a couple of light primes - a 28 IS or a 35 1.4 plus a 50 1.4, say - and save the zooms for lengths where foot-zooming isn't a good substitute: ultrawide and long.  So I would likely be asking the question in reverse....

Still, it's hard to change the perspective between 24 and 70 with your feet. I don't use the 2470 to get closer, I use it to set my perspective and then footzoom to the crop I want. Plus the AF of the 2470 kills every prime under 200mm.

No, you can't change perspective by foot-zooming; that's why I suggested a couple of primes within that range, not one, and zooms for wider (which will go at least up to 24mm) and longer (which will usually start at 70mm).  But the suggestion was for someone who shares my preferences: I was offering a, um, perspective, not a general recommendation (for all I know, no-one shares that particular preference of mine).  I simply don't find the 24-70 range very useful most of the time. 

I have no doubt the 24-70 is as good as everyone says, but does its AF really "kill" the AF on the new IS primes?  The AF on the 28mm IS I own and the 35mm IS I rented is/was impeccable and very fast, while my second copy of the old 50mm 1.4 (unlike the first one I bought) has been fast and accurate too along with having the obvious advantages of being a faster lens.

I have barley tried the 28 IS, but I have had every L prime from 14 to 300 and still consider the 2470
Mk2 to be absolutely spot on in a series of 12 fps with seriously difficult erratic behavior in a way non of those primes could keep up with at all, only matched by the 70200 mk2.

What I have come to see is that prime users are envious towards the 24-70 users with all their versatility and weight saving. While I see zoom users that envy the prime users for the better image, and of course bokehliciousness of 1.4 and faster. Some girl that spent all she got on a 5D2 and the 24-70L II later wanted to get primes instead LOL, wish I could afford that lens though...
