Street & City / Re: 85mm f/1.2 does street on a 6d.

I've used the 85 for street/event. Overall, it probably has more drawbacks than most lenses in those situations, but it can produce wonderful results. You do have to get past the idea of shooting at f/1.2. This was f/4.0 at 1/500 on a 5D3...

Lenses / Re: The Sigma 35mm Art is Toasting Canon's?

since everybody is leaning towards sigma since the new 35 and 50mms A by Sigma?

Please qualify this, then I'll provide a response.

EOS Bodies / Re: High ISO Samples from the Canon EOS 7D Mark II

Hey, hey, think before you post!!

The idea here is to ROUSE the RABBLE, not calm them down. You and your constant resorting to reason!! You're going to ruin all the fun around here!


Exactly, I love it when people don't bother to even go to the original site. This was shot on the floor of the Photokina trade show. Clearly, what happened was the guy got to hold the camera for a few minutes, stuck a card in it and fired off a few shots of a nearby model.

Still, the results do see quite good. Even if it is a jpeg, it would seem the camera's processing is pretty impressive at a minimum. Whether it's the "new" sensor or the new processing, it really doesn't matter, the results are definitely quite good and much closer to 5DIII standards than most people, if they are honest, would have expected.

Did it pass the test?

Let's call a promotional video what it is -- advertising. Don't slobber all over my sensor and tell me it's an abstract!

Impressive.  Finally I have a reason to sell my s95.

I don't think I've used my S95 all this year. Never occurred to me that anyone might buy it. How much value could it possibly have?

I watched this B&H vid last year. It was enough to convince me not to try it...

And the picture (looking very manipulated) seems to even show a touch of red swoosh. Can we turn that into a merger rumor???

I'm guessing that 2000mm is with digital. I'd be surprised if optical zoom went beyond 1200mm.

Either way, I'm probably going to get one. Looks like lots of fun, and the images I've seen are more than adequate for what it is. What will my old S95 say?

Hi distant star.
Very nice, you sure you didn't fiddle the sliders  ;D seriously that is a stunning sky, wish we got them like that, or when we do that I'd notice they are out there instead of watching the goggle box.

Cheers, Graham.

Thanks, Graham. Just usual processing for clarity, sharpness, etc., but the intensity and color, if anything, had to be toned down. I had shot some more classic sunset shots, like this...


then I went inside and sat down for a few minutes. When we were close to docking I went out on deck and was greeted with this amazing scene. Everyone on the ferry, including crew, were shooting it. Wish I'd had my 17-40.

Nice. Always a treat to see one of your images!! Thanks.



yes...of course I do...I do the best I can when I am shooting...but many times once I look at the final product in Photoshop, Lightroom, DXO...or one of the many...I make adjustments.  I have no shame in it and make absolutely no excuses for it!
  Oh..and I use B&W MRC, Clear, Nano  filters on ALL my lenses except my Canon Fisheye and 17mm TSE....so if you want to dice me up..you can now do it all at once!  :P
  ...oh..but ...wait...you have to show me examples of your photography BEFORE you say one word about MY preferences, so that I get to judge who is scolding me!!!!!!!   ;D ??? ::) :'(

(YES, I cropped the image!)
