A new 50/1.4 that is doubled in price, so I can sell my current 50/1.4 at a less or no loss.

Lenses / Re: Lens Issue: 10-22 vs 16-35 vs 17-40

I just sold my 10-22 as I'm going to the 5D3.  I bought the 24 f1.4L to replace the 10-22.  The 10-22 was a great lens, but too slow for my style of shooting.  I gave the 16-35 some thought as it is close in price to the 24L, but f1.4 was the deciding factor by a long shot.  For super wide I can use my 8-15L and keep it as non-fishey as possible if I want.

My dealer said they were told by Canon Canada NO sales until March 22nd.  Maybe Canon has back off a little.

My wife and I started up a photography business last year.  I'm currently in the process of getting her a camera body.  We primarily shoot family portraiture and are moving into weddings this summer. I currently have:

Canon 5d Mk2
Canon 35L 1.4
Canon 50L 1.2
Sigma 85mm 1.4
Canon 135L f/2
Canon 580ex II

I do have the mark 3 preordered but damn the D800 is tempted... I could sell everything and start from scratch... I would lose some money yes, but does Nikon have equivalent primes as Canon does?

I'm sure the D800 will be an awesome camera, but I think the pixel peepers are messing with your mind.

Lenses / Re: 4 lens conundrum - could use some help

Save up the monies, when they get to be 2+ years old you'll need 1 series AF to keep up.

Correct me if I'm wrong: masked area = some part of the sensor that is physically blocked from light but still records brightness values. By definition, this would be the darkest part of any exposure.

Allow me to correct you.   ;)  Although the OP certainly implies that is the case, the 'masked area' the OP is referring to is not physically blocked from light - lenses project an image circle, and for an EF lens, a FF sensor is the largest 3:2 rectangle than can be inscribed within that circle, such as the red box below:



So, what he's calling the 'side masking area' - the regions to the left and right of the red box - are actually being illuminated by light from the lens.  Why, then, are those regions 'black' in the RAW file?  Because those regions of the sensor are electronically turned off (technically, set to an arbitrary value).  Given that, I remain unconvinced that the method described by the OP is valid.



Ok, but the sensor is 24*36mm, so whatever light hits the sensor is your image.  The sensor is not round.  Again, correct me if I'm wrong.  ;)

(and if you look at all the Canon press they kept talking about it being better.... at mid and high isos.  I was hoping they just forget to mention improved low iso, but i guess they didn't mention it because they didn't do much there this time. at least the high iso stuff should be better though.)

Just shoot at higher a iso, moar DR, problem solved.  There's more than one way to starch your nose.
