There's apparently a version 2 of the excellent 8mm South Korean fisheye lens out, that has a removable hood.

Has anyone had experience with this version 2 lens?  Does it give you a FULL circular?  My research seems to indicate no.

Interesting. I too would like to hear about this too.

Any noise on during focusing on your 135 compared to the 70-200?

My 135 is considerably louder than the 70-200 4L IS.  Are your findings similar?



I've been shooting basketball this winter with the 135 f/2L at f/2, f/2.2, and f/2.5, depending on lighting.  I absolute love this lens.  I use it with the 70-200 f/2.8L II IS.  If lighting gets bad, I can depend on the 135L for an extra stop of light, and it's still razor sharp at f/2.

You know, I never paid attention.  I'll check it out.  I do notice that electronic noise on my 200 f/2L and 300 f/2.8L though, just during focusing with IS off.

Btw, I have never noticed any sound from my 135 or 70-200 II

The 200/2 is the loudest lens I ever shoot. The IS wants you to knop that it is there :)

Here is one I took a couple of nights ago. The foreground is very dark, but the sky was so beautiful that afternoon, so I could not resist :)

Lighting / Re: Getting started with 600EX-RT, advice?
« on: December 30, 2012, 08:48:41 AM »
So I got my first flash, a 600EX-RT.  So far I just got a Gary Fong Lighsphere diffuser for it and that's about it.  I was just curious as to what fun things I can do with it just to experiment.  I've always shot with natural light/reflectors, but I know flashes open up a whole new world.  I feel like I'm clueless as to where to start, so any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I would even suggest getting Joe McNally's book Sketching Light. I have that and Syl' book and they are great, and the most reccomended  books on the strobist.com

Maybe I should write an article for the site on TS-E use as few people seem to know how to get the best out of these extraordinary lenses

Canon 35mm f/2 IS Review

Thanks for the post. I just bought the Siggy 35, but still interesting to watch this. He makes a strong argument for the video shooters (of which I am not one of). Apart from the vignetting issue at F2.0,... Am I the only one that thought that the bokeh did not look particularly good on this lens?

Several are speculating that it is the Project 1709 that was launched as a beta at Photokina. If that is the case, I am not impressed with it so far.

I love the fact that they have placed a non-existing lens on the picture :)

As they have done in Norway for a couple of days on Facebook. They even ask us what we think it is :)
