Better phone editing software has a great deal to do with it. There have been a few shots that have fooled me with the blur tool on instagram. If you compose it right, you can simulate a shot with a fast lens. There are limitations, you have to work with a circle or bar, and you can't adjust the amount of blur. I'm sure they will have a paint blur with your fingers tool soon.

I think they could go faster than f/2 on a 50 for full frame mirrorless. Couldn't they match Leica's 50 f/1.4?

I've got the 90mm Tamron Macro... If you can't afford the 100L, I've been pleased with the Tamron. It is a dedicated macro lens for me as I have the 135L if I want portraits. AF is decent, but I tend to do live view manual focus for macro anyway. It's very sharp. I'm sure it compares to the 100L in IQ.

This is what the USB dock looks like.

Tell you what... If they make this nice and compact, say about the size of the nifty fifty with an EF-M mount, then this would be very appealing for me.

I'd really like to have a camera with great IQ I can put in my wife's purse for parties and casual events.

Yeah... DOF would be about f/2 compared to full frame, but you still get the low light advantage of f/1.3 and you get the normal lens look too if that is something you like.

Obviously, there are a lot of 5D3 users reading this website... I am one more...

Tell you what though, I'd trade exposure compensation with Auto ISO for Red illuminated AF points.

I've already become accustomed to the work around by hitting the M-Fn button when I lose the point.


This test shows the 5D3 can reveal more detail with post sharpening. The video says he did color grading but didn't mention sharpening.

Interesting, but I would think that it would be reserved for only the specialty items. Things like zebra or focus peaking on video... In Camera HDR maybe....

It's like buying an iPhone... it comes with the basics, but you have to buy iphoto and pages.

The problem would be that Canon would have a hard time keeping people from swapping firmware upgrades.

One of the boons of dual card slots on the 5d3 -
From ML's website
"Since the 5D mark III has two card slots, we recommend running Magic Lantern from a small SD card that stays in the camera. All recording can take place on CF cards. The CF cards don’t have to be bootable or prepared in any way, and you can freely swap and format them without problems."

Can't wait till full version is good to go. Also great news that they've finally cracked dual digic models, makes the 7d even more useful.

It depends on which camera you have, but there are some photography modes. The makers are more focused on the video features since that is why it started. There is a separate ML menu that is made accessible. You download it and put it on your SD card and follow the instructions.


Check out the link above for what it can do.


Looks like the 5DIII was not only hacked but they have a downloadable version for it right now.

Perhaps a story on that is warranted. This happened on the 12th.

Not exactly what was updated on the 120-300. Looks like MTF charts are the same. Perhaps it is lighter and focuses faster?

I was excited over the 17-70 until I read the website and it appears it is designed for a crop camera. I suppose it is an upgrade to the 17-50.

I own the current version of the Tamron 90mm Macro. It is pretty sharp. It suffers from some CA at 2.8 but still sharp and easy to fix in post. It would be nice to have VC so those hand held shots of bugs or flowers could be stopped down a little more.

The 70-200 upgrade will be interesting. Here is hoping they try to compete with Canon's 70-200L IS II in terms of image quality.
