Lenses / Re: 24-70 II slight clicking sound when zooming
« on: June 05, 2013, 04:35:04 PM »
I certainly haven't noticed a noise like that on mine - the zoom action is a smooth 'swish'.

EDIT: see this thread reporting the same issue (OP there returned the lens, got a silent replacement).

Thanks  a lot! Man, that wasn't to reassuring though :o Luckily I'm doing a trip to where I ordered it from so I'll be sure to either replace it or be reassured. Hopefully swap one, and pray that it is otherwise as perfect as this one is optically.

Lenses / 24-70 II slight clicking sound when zooming
« on: June 05, 2013, 04:25:17 PM »
Hi guys!

Instead of completely highjacking another thread I'll post a new topic.

Does everybody experience a very slight frequent "tick.tick,tick" noise when turning the zoomring of the 24-70 mk2?

It's spanking new, only very slight afma was needed (+1 to +3) and AF works perfect, the zoom turns smoothly otherwise. I just want to make sure it's nothing wrong.

Thanks!

Thanks a lot guys! I will absolutely enjoy this lens, I can see it growing to be a part of my camera, lol.

Did afma today and at 24mm=+1 and 70mm=+3, I say that's REALLY good. AF accuracy is 99,4% with 20 testpoints, ridicolous!

Hopefully I get a chance to really try it out over the weekend.

For now, all I can say, if you're thinking about getting one, and you're not quuuuiiite sure it's worth it, forget all of that, it can't possibly get any better than this....

I just need to find a buyer for my 24/1.4L II first :)

That is my problem also, although a fantastic lens, it's been as hard as the TS-E 17mm to sell... No takers..

Got mine today!

And even though I haven't even done any afma yet, except a ballpark of +5 at 70mm, this lens changes everything. Holy mother!

I haven't seen sharpness, color and contrast AND blistering AF like this since I owned the 300 f2.8 IS. Simply mindblowing. And to say it's as sharp as the 24 L II is a big understatement for the three copies I have owned of that lens, it's WAY better. Superb build. Weight and balance on the 1d X is perfect, a bit tight zoom-ring, but that's just because it's spanking new I guess.

And I got a great deal with special offer and cashback so price isn't a negative anymore. I might miss the deep hood of the mk1 which was great for keep rain off the front element, but hey.

Oh, and it came with the pinch-cap, which I still frikkin hate, I'm buying and old one for it.

The same choice here, except the 70-200, i sold a mk1 24-70, I chose to sell my 24 L II to help pay for the 24-70 II. While I will sometimes miss the wide angle
Shallow dof I'm getting AF that's on another planet. And I loves my AF ! Now that I have sold the mk1 24-70 I constantly miss it. And I'm one those prime all the wAy guys. Not anymore. The good old combo of 24-70 , 70-200 is fantastic for what I shoot, and the 35 and 50 is there if the light is too low.

My 24-70 is in the mail as of right now, bought it yesterday, I'll come
Back with some initial thoughts when I get it.

HDR - High Dynamic Range / Re: Post your HDR images:
« on: June 03, 2013, 05:16:35 PM »
It's been a long time since I've used HDR, but this weekend the sun was HIGHLY annoying (well, from a photo-perspective ::) And I decided to give it a try. The picture isn't all that interesting, it just shows how I like my HDR's. Originally 7 shot handheld, but skipped the brightest one. Pol-filter.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Auto ISO
« on: May 29, 2013, 01:19:41 PM »
My 1d X is 95% set to auto-iso and I have the "Shutter speed limit" on My Menu, choosing, in Av, which shutter speed I won't go below. I found it to produce very good consistent results for me. Shutter usually MUCH more important than noise to me. Outdoor in daylight I Limit my shutter to 1/2000s-1/8000s and auto iso, and EC is dialed in with the rear wheel independently.

Wasn't there supposed to be a 1d X firmware around this month also?

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!
