You can see my gear list in my sig.  I'd take the 5D3 and the 35L.  I recommend a 600rt flash purchase over the 16-35 if you don't have a flash.  I think you'll take some people (wife) pictures and the 600 is great for fill inside and outside, and bounce indoors.  Have a nice trip too.

Lenses / Re: AF dead on my EF 200 2.8L - thoughts?

The AF died in a 200/2.8L I owned once.  I bought it new and it died a week later.

The 6D won the EISA best advanced DSLR of the year..... A category that the D600 would have been considered in... i imagine it was selected by people who know what they are talking about!!

We're up to the G16 now.  Where does the time go?

I'd say most of the M bashers in this thread have never used an M.

And here come the posts about back-focus issues in 3, 2, 1.

Many claimed 50L is soft. I like my at f1.4 to f1.6. Photo below shot with JPEG straight out from camera. Only resized to post here.

And that is justification for the 50L right there. With te 50 1.8 it's only really good around f/2.2 or above, the 50 1.4 prob around f/2 but if you actually want decent quality with nice bokeh at f/1.4 - 1.8 you're gonna need the 50L. Oh and it wont break so easily either.


I've owned two copies of the 50/1.8, and a singe copy of the 50/1.4.

Years ago, I was taught that the 100mm lens was the best portrait instrument. Now, it seems, this 1.2 seems to be accepted as the lens for faces, softening the background. Well.... which is it? 100 or 50? I am assuming a full frame configuration....  Would not my 100 f2.8 do great for portraits?

And please, no snarky replies. It is really unnecessary to be superior.

Your 100/2.8 is great for portraits, mine is, but so is a 50/1.2 —Different tastes.

If I won a big lottery I'd put out a bounty for someone to build a lens like that if Canon didn't take it up.

Or just buy what's current and hire a assistant to haul your sh*t around.

A 100 TSE macro seems like a logical idea.  Any word about a replacement for the 45 TSE?

Erm... Bring the 70-200 f/2 too and damn I'll buy those two preciousssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss
Doable, I guess, big and heavy for sure, and a filter size of 105mm+. Similar to size/weight of 120-300mm f/2.8 or 200-400mm f/4. Betting now the price will not be less than Canon 70-200mm II if it ever materializes.

Less than the 70-200/2.8?  The 200/2 is $5k+ so a 70-200/2 would be more costly and very heavy.

The 50/1.2 because of it's general performance,

What did you not like about your experiences with the 50/1.2L?  I have to assume you own this lens, have owned it in the past, or have used it in a rental or other situation. 

I have owned the 50/1.8, 50/1.4, and the 50/1.2 as per my sig.
