Now it is only Photozone still dragging their feet of the big ones.

Btw: I love what I am seeing from my copy so far :)

EOS Bodies / Re: taurians upgrading to 5d mark 3

While we are all still waiting for Godot! (i.e. some real news ;)

I am a taurus, and I had a jump from my first DSLR, a Canon 300D with some cheapo efs zoomlenses. I loved that camera (although it did not have Raw). I sold it after a few years, and regretted it tremendously. I was out for a few years, and then got back by borrowing a 1Ds III for some years (it corresponded with my firstborn son), before I got my own 5D II. I have my eyes on a 1Dx if the lady Fortuna abides me :) I still borrow the 1Ds III, and I will not sell my 5D II even if I get a 1Dx (the selling price would be to low for such a great camera).

Neuro can hold his own.

I am more interested in seeing if he was right? :)

Not as tough as Chuck Norris or Mike Ditka.

LOL!

You know that Chuck Norris has two facial expressions? One with a hat, and the other one without :)

Just unboxed my copy this night. It is not a picture to remember, but to my unskilled eyes it looks quite sharp. Camera 5D II and ISO 100, AWB. The first is the original downsized to 150 to get the file small enough, and the other one is a 100 percent crop of the first knife in focus.

The lens cap of the 8-15 is pretty good. I would not stop buying the lens I want because it can get scratched. Get insurance. Is cheap. And enjoy your lens. Unless you don't really want it. Is a great lens and a lot of fun to use it.

I have the lens and will use it a lot. It was just a fun photosetup that I was contemplating, thus the question. I will bring my 16-35 II next time I am there, which has a B&W filter, thus no danger to the lens :) It does not give me the same angle, but will be sufficient to capture the squirrel, birds, and the forrest mice that are all fighting over the same food :)

Timmy the  8-15 is a fisheye-zoom, and there's really no way of putting a filter in front of the lens.

Just use duct tape and cardboard to build some kind of "cage" around the lens front and then duct tape a filter to it. Or build some (acrylic)glass cage and put ur camera inside if u wanna go real serious :D

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Sigma 35MM F/1.4 DG HSM Worth the price
« on: January 04, 2013, 12:24:01 PM »
Hi

I enjoy portraits of family & friends mostly on my old 450D, and planning to get an indoor portrait lens addition to my EFS 15-85. Does Sigma 35MM F/1.4 DG HSM really worth the price or should I get the cheap EF 40 f/2.8 STM?

Regards

Efe Ersoy

As to answer you question, I would like another person her suggested buy a Canon 50 1.4 given that you have a crop body, hence the 35 and the 40 might be a tad short and also loosing some compression.

As for the other debate, I am still waiting for the photozone.de review. For once they did not post a review before I got to buy the new Sigma. They are normally quite quick, and I find them very trustworthy, even though I have already bought it :) Crossing my fingers that they are not telling me that I have made a stupid purchace.... (have not yet tried it, since I have not returned from the holidays, but come Monday, I have it in my hand:)

I don't know tapatalk, but I believe all solutions would be better than the current one. When I go to CR with my iPhone it is a mess, so I have stopped doing it. Now I only visit the community when I have my laptop or iPad at hand.
