EOS Bodies / Re: New AF Technology Coming in July? [CR1]

I heard it's six times faster in the Eos M
Now... wow, can't believe Canon went all MF...

1d X and 24 L II, nothing changes.

Of the 2 x 1Dx bodies I have as well, I've had one Body back to Canon for a replacement Focus Screen, apparently I must have left the Camera with a 400f/2.8 pointed directly into the Sun while having Lunch and the result was a partially melted Focus Screen.

That is one of the most badass faults I have heard of in a long while ;D Good thing the rest survived!

I'm about to buy the 24-70 mk2, and wonder if people still experience copy-to-copy variation of significance? Or was this only the first sold?

Does anyone have some sharpness-results from Reikan Focal to share so we can compare different ones?

Thanks again guys, it's on my wish-to-get list for sure!

A lot of people say the Sigma is razor sharp. It just isn't nearly as sharp as my 70-200L. It is only as good as my 50 1.4. Don't get me wrong. I think it's not bad. It's just not as sharp as I was hoping. Things look nice on LCD but come out slightly disappointing on monitor. Its AF seems slow too, not as snappy as I wanted. I've never used the 35L so I can't compare. Am I expecting too much? After all, a wide angle is more difficult to make than a tele. Do people really sell their 35L to get this? Well, maybe I have a bad copy...

I was also very dissapointed in the AF-performance of the Siggy. I own the 35 L, after talking to a few people, I seem to have a very nice copy of it as it is very sharp at 1.4 and the AF is of the best I have owned and currently own, except the insane 70-200 mkII of course.

This is shot at 1.4:

I've owned and used the 85 and 135 and the 70-200 II (I) a bunch of times each because my needs change. But if I were to buy only one the 70-200 II IS fantastic! I've recently forced myself to use
It, since I didn't like it before and the more I use it, the
More I love it, it is magnificent !!

I use the 1d X exclusively and I can't say I KNOW it will have accurate focus as I shoot a lot with lenses that aren't optimal AF wise, like the 50 L. But mostly I blame the lenses not the camera, because I am never at fault whatsover  ;D I don't use One Shot and have accepted that Servo of fast moving subjects at f1.2 isn't going to be 100%, but I trust my gear enough to try ridicolous things with the AF, and very seldom is it completely off.

I always try to be better at focusing, trying different settings for different subjects all the time, and shoot a lot so I know where it's VERY accurate and where I need to blast off a few more. Using the 70-200 I would say it's 99,99%. In a situation where I can't afford to miss, I use burst to be sure.

Is it a way to check if a lens is decentered with Focal?

Does it do tethered with Lightroom?
No ... CamRanger has its own app for iPad/iPhone/iPod and it only works with that app ... but that app is excellent and works flawlessly.

Great, thanks! Oh, and it's the same app for mac.

Sweet, thanks all for your very helpful insights!

Only that it is excellent and works as advertised, then it|s good enough for me! I saw that it was for iPad/iPhone, but later saw it works as Beta on Mac aswell, which is my intended use. Does it do tethered with Lightroom?

I will be using it for the 1d X. Came across it when I was searching around for that DIY wifi-solution.

Hi guys!

Saw this and wondered if anyone had any experience with it? Also if there are any deals around.

Looks cool :D

Save yourself a lot of anger and frustration and get Focal right
Away. It gives me the accurate results I
Need. I use the 1dx with 50 L aaaaall the time. And after I bought the EC-s focusing screen it got even more fun.

I actually bought the QP-card, but cancelled my order when I learned it's a piece of cardboard that comes already scratched and splattered ink and poorly glued together. I love the Passport as it is rugged and can take being used extensively and always be in my bag.

Another reason I decided to stick with the CC is that I learned that the best results isn't by using the X-rite software, but Adobe Profile Editor. And after a small amount of testing today I absolutely agree! All the things I didn't like with X-rite's results, to saturated colors, blues too blue and often off reds, is not the case with Adobe PE. It gives by far the most natural accurate results from everything I tried.

Can't wait to try outside tomorrow in different light!
