The Zeiss cleaner should be fine (my order is blower then LensPen then Zeiss cleaner, although most of my lenses have a B+W MRC UV on them).
But those spots in your image aren't from the front of the lens - spots on the front element don't usually appear in images at all (unless the spots are penny-sized - and even then, they would not be in focus). So...in addition to spots on your lens, you've got dust on your sensor.
I waited almost 9 months ... so I can wait another 9 days ... No need for me to send it to Canon service center
It's curious why, if they're updating bodies in their Service Centers with this new firmware, they haven't already posted it on their website. I have a big shoot coming up this week, and would have liked to run the camera through its paces with this new code. Oh well.A very valid point. One can hand off a Beta, but you would not update somebody's software (or firmware) without their consent. In fact if a company updated somebody's software without their consent even if it was released, they could be sued...
That said, I am sure there are new versions are in the wild. There has to be a larger group doing a Beta test before release. If they shifted the date till the end of this month, there has to be a reason to re-validate the working of a fix (or three).
I wonder if anyone has tried the 1DX with some of the big f2.8 telephotos for sports photography? I'm willing to bet it would work well for that.
my 6D + 50 1.8 can do great street photography at night too and many folds cheaper than your 1dx + 85 1.2.
talking about IQ/price ratio, my combo is greater than yours.
Well, show us some pictures. Everyone is eager to see your work.
Um, the first photo you posted is of 6 girls in their panties in a place called "Temptations Ladyboy Bar". And believe me, I'm 23 and the last thing I am is offended by this, but please don't call it "street photography.
Why on earth not?!!! On the contrary, I think the first shot captures the essence of street photography, whether it is actually outside or not. That picture will withstand time and could be a semiotic symbol representing a particular part of some culture in a particular point in time/history.
Sanj, I again applaud you for a great picture which actually tells a story, and please do not pay heed to sour nay-sayers.
ISO 2000. 1.2 1/640
In fairness, the 1DX wasn't even breathing hard, let alone breaking a sweat. You'd need to go at least a half dozen stops darker before it really starts to pull away from the competition.
But nice photography, nonetheless. HCB would nod approval.
