Lenses / Re: Canon Refurb Store ... Not Such A Good Deal

I did not say the store sucked, or make any negative comments about the store itself.

"Canon Refurb Store ... Not Such A Good Deal"

Sounds like you did to me.

Yes, sometimes store A has better prices on some items than store B. This is called a free market and why we shop around before making a purchase. Welcome to America.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D MK3 vs. D800 - fredmiranda

I shot a Stouffer Transmission Wedge (13.2 stops DR total) with a 5DII, 5DIII, & a D7000.

The 5DIII required 1/3EV less exposure than 5DII to keep any channel (meaning: green, since that blows first) from blowing out in the brightest patch of the wedge. The D7000 needed 2/3EV less exposure than 5DII (i.e. 1/3EV less exposure than 5DIII) to keep any channel from blowing out.

Well, I'm sure this ensures you pick the right camera for all those NatGeo contest winning Stouffer Transmission Wedge pictures everybody is clamoring for!! Call the NY times!! Wedge pictures here, get yer wedge pictures here!!

God pixel peepers are a joke. Ansel Adams surely never questioned this type of crap.

It's like this on every online forum, everywhere... Heaven forbid you tell your honest opinion about something... Now you're a d*ck! People are too soft these days.

I'm not a professional by any means, but I've used the singh ray vari-nd on a more than a few occasions and it does not seem to affect my image quality what so ever. and I usually use it on a 70-200 IS II....

Just sayin...

I have a few comments, but not really about the pictures...

What kind of cycling event is that? It looks like indoor cyclocross do to the tires looking quite big... But to me, that would defeat the purpose of cyclocross itself...

Enlighten me please  :)

2 words... RAMEN NOODLES! We got well acquainted with each other in the last few months.

I hope you're joking.....

What's wrong with Ramen? You know in some countries, such as Japan (where I currently live) Ramen is a staple diet food. People here eat Ramen all the time, and these folk are among the world's longest living people... I'd say they're doing something right...

Tonight I had the luxury of adding a boiled egg and some cilantro.

That looks quite good.

Lenses / Re: Help choosing lenses for new 5D Mark II
« on: January 12, 2012, 01:54:12 AM »
You're worried about lenses... Obviously you bought a body, so you need at least one to take pictures with... What I would be more concerned about is the fact that your last two shot, of landscapes, your horizons were noticeably not level....

EOS Bodies / Re: Should i go for the 1DX or the 5D Mk III?
« on: December 13, 2011, 02:46:16 AM »
Should I go for an unreleased camera with specifications subject to change or a hypothetical version of a camera I speculate might be announced?

I want to buy the one that doesn't even exist yet!! Is there a link with a "buy it now" button for me to click??

Meanwhile my 5D2 and (ZOMG!!) old 50f1.4 are click away real, tangible pictures. But maybe I should stop using that 50 cuz there was a rumor about a "II" coming out soon

Lenses / Re: EF 24-105 F4L - Normal or Issue
« on: December 07, 2011, 07:41:17 AM »
they look very different to the sharp pointed ones the 16-35 produces,what i am refering to is how the sparkles diverge at the extents instead of converge, just wondering if its a trait of this lens or my copy.

I'm betting the two lenses have different shaped aperture blades/opening causing the different looking starbursts... There is likely nothing wrong with your lens.

Lenses / Re: Lens Filter for 70-200mm f2.8 IS II
« on: December 03, 2011, 08:17:56 PM »
I personally like my Singh Ray VariND on the 70-200... It's nice to be able to force the aperture open in bright daylight, etc....

The 28 1.8 is a great little lens and makes for a nice "normal" lens on a 1.6 crop.  And it's FF so it can stay with you if/when you move to FF.

Of the lenses he listed, this is the one I would also recommend. He likes landscapes, which means wider, and the 28 1.8 fits this bill perfectly for the crop body. You can get them refurb'd from Canon, Adorama, B&H for about 400, so go for it. You won't regret it.

EOS Bodies / Re: Bokeh difference - full frame vs crop??
« on: October 27, 2011, 08:55:54 AM »
Without those pictures being framed with the camera (not post production cropping) identically, the comparison with them is useless.

EOS Bodies / Re: Light Field camera - Is this a revolution?
« on: October 21, 2011, 11:17:09 PM »
I just want to know if this is even a real post... Judging by the grammar and general english in the OP, I'm thinking this is spam.

You said portraits, so I would go with the 24-70 and the 50 1.4.

EOS Bodies / Re: Why the new 5D will be cheaper than the current 5D
« on: October 19, 2011, 03:56:06 PM »
So no one should be listing it at all... Except used.

Unless someone has some that are still new because they haven't been sold yet?  ???
