My house was burglarized last year and much of my photography gear was stolen (along with most everything else of value in my home).

Reminds me of "The best camera you have is the one you left home" :P

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: DxOMark "Perceptual Megapixel"

The closer u fit the pixels on the sensor near each other the easier noise will start to appear. And any kind of noise even if so subtle means image loss.
In worst case u have a P&S camera with a really tiny sensor with many pixels so close to each other that it will be outresolved by the same sensor with less megapixels.
Some people even say the 1100D has the best IQ in the APS-C line due to this. It just got 12MP but "perceptual MP" is more like 16MP.
But i think this is really not an issue on APS-C or FF sensors. APS-C would be like 60megapixels or such before the pixels come too close to each other.

Is there anything else that can do this for its size?

old film slrs or rangefinders...cheaper a lot too . p.s. a good lense makes the difference. if the photos would have been taken with a stock lens i would be impressed but not like this.

You can also find this on the 35mm lenses. Samyang one was more like 37mm or such if i remember correctly. Afterall a few mm difference can have a big difference for example compare 24mm and 28mm. Just 4 mm but u can see the difference. I think its not about cheating but just the rules of physics.
Would be really confusing if we had lenses like "36.24mm" or "117.11" and such :D

I got Lowepro 140 AW and there hardly fits more inside than one camera.

If you mean the ringflash/ringlight effect (see picture) then just get the Walimex Ringleuchte 65W from Amazon.

(ps guy in the foto looks like D soosts brother :D )

I think these are good for handheld im getting similar results with my flektogon 35mm 2.8. My best advice is just to shoot many photos of the subject :P Blur is very easy to achieve sadly. Id still wish i had the 100mm 2.8 L lens cuz IS will be handy for handheld.
For things on the ground just carry around a big plastic bag (120litre or such) and put it on the ground so u can lay on it when u want to. Saves u from getting dirty and is really really cheap :P
You can also get some kind of mini tripod and have it always attached to your camera. Not hard to carry but they can be quite pricey. Or just take the cheap alternative again and carry around the famous beanbag with u! Yes its just a bag with beans inside but it stabilizes well :P
Get an old small pillow of yours and fill it with beans! There you go :D

samples i shot handheld with told lens (klick for 100%):

Lenses / Re: How tough is the glass of a lens? (8-15)
« on: January 05, 2013, 05:21:31 AM »
Timmy the  8-15 is a fisheye-zoom, and there's really no way of putting a filter in front of the lens.

Just use duct tape and cardboard to build some kind of "cage" around the lens front and then duct tape a filter to it. Or build some (acrylic)glass cage and put ur camera inside if u wanna go real serious :D

Lenses / Re: Canon 100mm macro IS vs non-IS - any further input?
« on: January 05, 2013, 05:17:28 AM »
IQ is nearly the same while the L somewhat looks like it got 2% better IQ. If you can live without IS just get the cheaper one.

P.S : how sharp would the 17-40 be on a 7d ??

as sharp as on any other camera.

Try joghurt becher with different colors, plastic bags with different colors....just anything u can find. U dont necessarily have to spend money for a diffusor.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon 5D Mark iii + 50 1.4 ii?
« on: January 03, 2013, 08:29:09 AM »

Unfortunately the focus screens on the 5D Mark III are not replaceable.

Seriously? But 6D can do it? So silly since i think 5d mk3 has more "pro users" who would want to change the focus screen.

All canon 50mm lenses are good. Even with the 50mm 1.8 and Mk3 you would have a really nice combo. At f/5.6 the 50mm 1.8ii is one of the sharpest lenses. I dont think think there is anything better you could buy instead of your f/1.4 50mm at this point for the same cash.
Like i always say...get cheap m42 lenses with an adapter and manual focus screen for ur 5d mk3 if u really depend on having different focal lengths. 135mm 2.8 m42 lenses arent expensive for example.
Oh but im not sure if they work on FF since i use them on APS-C. Well whatever u have a really nice combo now! I wish i had the 1.4 instead of 1.8, I think it lets double the amount of light in hehe.
