EOS Bodies / Re: Patent: EF 85mm f/1.2L III and Others

I love, love, love my 85II for all reasons stated above, but seriously, this lens has really bad LOCA that's difficult to fix in post.

If they found a way to reduce the green/magenta bokeh CA, I would upgrade in a heartbeat (assuming that's even possible on 1.2 lenses)

Amazing!  What would Canon do without ML?   ;D

At some point, I'd like to pick up the 11-22, but only if Canon commits to the system and brings newer bodies to market.

EOS M2?  I think it came out in January?

Favorite lens is the 11-22mm

Between this and the 22mm pancake, I don't need or want anything else for the M mount.  I also use the 18-55mm, but strictly for video.

Anything @ f1.2 or tele is when the SLR finds its use.

$500 for a 10mm f2.8 manual focus prime vs. OEM 11mm f4.0 AF zoom IS with a street price of ~$450   :-\

Assuming optically the prime is very good, I still don't understand why anyone would pick up the RokiBowYang, even at a discounted street price of say $350.  I own a few of these Korean made lenses and while sharpness peaks like crazy in the mid range apertures, much is left to be desired up to 2 stops from wide open.

oops, i realize not everyone cares to shoot with the M.  it's technically not EF-S compatible :)

Not sure what there's left to improve besides weight to be honest.

The biggest improvement over the MKI was the much improved MFD and updated IS imo, but either version shoots wide open all day long leaving folks more than happy with the results.

Are you familiar with that old adage:

"If you have to ask how much it costs..."

Dear Surapon,
Really glad to hear you're still enjoying your M!

And yes, I'd have to agree.  It's my camera of choice! (...when nothing is moving) :)

the 11-22mm is a killer lens.... love shooting video with it too.

Sold my 16-35 II after getting this.

Hmmm, I've got an old "Angle Finder B" lying around here, from my analog SLR times (EOS 100, back in the 1990s).
Has someone here experience in adapting an Angle Finder B to the new Canon DSLRs, e.g. 5D Mark III?

Regards,
Mattias

yeah I use the B version on my 5Dc all day long.  Never found a reason to upgrade to C because of that.

While I can understand the desire on a 1.6x crop. I really can'y see any benefit of an IS unit on a full frame 16mm lens. If you need stability....then use a tripod. Should anyone really be hand holding less than 1/15th sec? If the shot is that important....put it on a pod, end of story.

When I travel Europe, I love to photograph castles, churches, museums, (anything dimly lit and indoors) places that never allow pods of any kind.

No wide angle f2 zoom lenses? Not interested Canon.

Are you being serious?  Any idea how expensive or cumbersome said lens would be?
