I'm just jealous I can't afford the 85L, but can get the exact same shot with my 70-200 L f/4....

So? I heard people that got the pulitzer prize award have used cameras which are totally stoneage technology compared to todays digital world. Does it make a difference? no.
Getting a good shot is not about the lens u have.  Anyway the president is not a model and doesnt want to be presented like that :P Its all about good documentary photos not more not less. Camera settings also look a lot like typical studio settings. Bokeh doesnt make crappy picture awesome its just the distorted view of many people thinking a photo looks great when there is so much bokeh present...

EOS Bodies / Re: Older Canon cameras
« on: January 18, 2013, 10:18:48 AM »
I got an old film EOS for my EF lenses, cost like 15 Euro and does the job well.
For anything older id probably get a m42 camera. Spotmatic, Memotron, MTL5 etc.
At the momente im trying to get a somewhat cheap 6x6 or 6x4.5
U can also check around for an old Rangefinder camera (there is not only Leica) that might be something different :)

EOS Bodies / Re: New Rebel T4i vs 60d/7D

I would just get the Rebel in your case. Upgrading from APS-C to another APS-C doesnt make things different much. Just save ur money til u can a "real" FF upgrade. 7D i only suggest it if u need the high FPS. Next level from Rebel is 6D imho. An upgrade should be a real difference not a different body material and button layout. Fullframe is more different noise wise, lens FOV wise etc.

Same here in germany. Imho it has nothing to do with the education level. Some people just cant even speak their native tongue properly.

Im still in doubt if its really that simple as just putting an inversed magnifying glass on the sensor while mainting the same image quality.

Why you need new Canon sensors like every year? If they pump out something awesome every 5 years im down with that. Would be crap if my new FF purchase would be blown away by next years release.

I guess they asked several companies, compared prices and then stuck with Nikon cuz it was cheapest.
Anyway who cares what brand some people in space are using? Does it even matter as long as they get usable photos? Probably the guy who shoots the photos is just a Nikon user anyway thats why he got that camera on board.

So just get 6D. Better shadow noise performance and you can change the focussing screen. What about putting 1.4xtender on your 70-200? or 135L with extender.

If there would be one near me id be happy if you could try out L lenses there. They should install some 1200mm lens to try out too :P

EOS Bodies / Re: What Canon Body is threatened buy the Nikon D5200?

None, after the experiences with the delays, the initial 5d3/24-70ii price and the 6d features it's clear non-Rebel users (who just own the kit lens) very seldom switch and Canon can get away with just about everything - people complain, but that's about it.

I remember when i got into photography the 5d mk2 was announced. People opened threads and complained about it being overpriced and such. Many people came up with "I stick with my old trusty 5d!". When the 5dmk2 was established it was worshipped and like the ultimate camera to get.

And now exactly the same happened when the 5d mk3 came out. "Overpriced, bad DR compared to Nikon" and so on. And now? Yes you guess right...(nearly) everybody thinks the 5dmk3 is such an awesome camera.

Its just complaining cuz people want to complain. Im sure if u are into something else (cars, fishing rods, RC cars, just something) the exact same thing happens in these forums. Good example are World of Warcraft Forums :P Its a major complain fest there but yet the game is played by over 10 Mio people constantly.

Im gonna stick with Canon cuz i like their L lenses and the nifty fifty entry lens which is somewhat legendary.

If i had to care that much about DR +- id probably be a pro with enough money to buy whatever camera i want. For my hobby i think its just ridculous if Id complain about such stuff.

Lenses / Re: Your "precious" lord of the red rings is?
« on: January 08, 2013, 06:01:29 AM »
People, seriously? Discussing what your favorite 2 lenses are in the context of a house fire? What next - a thread where you're in a sinking ship and what lenses you'll save?

Whereas some people would take photos in their spare time, some think about what lenses they'll save in case their house burns down. Ha, that's why I love this forum. :P

Its not much different than "Imagine u would be on a desrted island. What would the 2 items (lenses in this case) you would bring with u?"

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon 6D(N) available?
« on: January 08, 2013, 05:59:30 AM »
I think the N will be sold in countires where WiFi or GPS isnt allowed for the public. Perhaps check North Korea vendors
