ef 20mm f2.0L, or lower the price of the tilt 17mm by $900.

Lenses / Re: ef 35L on crop - experiences?
« on: March 19, 2012, 11:45:58 PM »
The 35L is great on a crop, and it performs very well wide open.  Its AF is fast and accurate, rarely misses.  I used mine on a 50D for a few years, but now I am waiting for my 5D3.  I also have the 50L; the 35L yields a higher keeper rate when both are used wide open.

Problem with the 35L on a crop and using it as a normal lens is you retain the wide angle perspective of the 35mm. 

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D mk III: ISO 25600...Stunning!!!!!

These are some of the cleanest ISO 25000 shots I've ever seen from any camera. I first shot at ISO 25000 back in 1990, pushing T-Max p3200. Trust me; they looked nowhere near this good.

Tough crowd. Some people have no idea how far we've come.
I agree. Much better than my 50D's 12800 or even 6400.

I shot my 50D tonight at 3200, ouch.  Nevermind 6.4 or 12.8.

How can Canon keep the camera's name a secret till the day they announce it.  They had lots of cameras made, many boxes made, many manuals written, proof-read, and printed.  How can they keep all that a secret?  Hundreds of non Canon employees were involved. 

What did we do before the d800 and 5d3? What did we do before the d700 and 5d2?

Maybe you took #3 too, but mostly it's the lighting giving it away. 

Good thread.

You took photos 1, 4, and 6



everyone pouring over image files to examine them at sub-atomic levels to see if the molecular structure of the D800 is cleaner.


I'm stoked to finally have FF after leaving my EOS 5 film camera.  A 50mm lens will have the FOV and perspective of 50mm again.

How to press the shutter release (sheesh!)

Yes, and 99% of the population still does it wrong.  Ever notice when people take a photo and say on the count of "three", it takes more like 6? 

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mk III vs D800/E, is the 5D3 better at anything?

This fourm is like a bunch of 10 year old boys arguing over if Batman can kick Superman's ass.

With those lens FF is a given.
