Canon EF Prime Lenses / Re: Pictures taken with the humble 35 f2
« on: December 04, 2012, 05:32:46 PM »
The church looks like its a rendering, really cool :D im also thinking about getting the 35mm f2 from canon since the other options are too expensive for me and sometimes im just too lazy to use my m42 35mm lens and manual focus with my tiny "keyhole" viewfinder. liveview is not handy for me.

i heard the 35mm f2 is just average but the photos on pixel-peeper dont look bad to me...confused :(

There are 16mm cinema prime lenses.

The one and only lens that I am lusting for right now doesn't even exist.

It is the 14-24L. Canon's equivalent to Nikon's 14-24 - one of the best lenses ever made.

A 16-35 III would also be ok, as long as it is razor sharp across the frame.

Get Nikon to EoS adapter, problem solved :P

Sigma 35mm 1.4
Canon 100 2.8L macro
Canon 50mm 1.2L
Canon 24mm II L

Try your hand at film. The entire process. THAT is an art and a craft. Any fool can press a button, move a mouse and a slider. I know  because I can do it ;) (Both film user and self  acclaimed digital fool)

Im also shooting film just dont develop it myself (i guess that was ur point). But i think its a challenge since i cant just post process the hell out of it as easy as with digital.

EOS Bodies / Re: Downgrade to crop
« on: December 03, 2012, 09:47:44 AM »
Oh yes bigger and brighter viewfinder is definitly a reason why i wanna go FF as soon as possible. Anytime i jump on my analog EOS im like...ehh....this camera costs 15 euro but has a nicer viewfinder than my digital one...

But i think only 5D and higher got "pentaprism" which is brighter than "pentamirror" that 6D uses if im correct.

If i was you i would go fullframe and get 1,4x TC. Sure u lose light but FF camera lets more light in and 6D or higher offer really good high ISO so it doesnt matter.

The main reason why im annoyed of my APS-C sometimes is that its so hard to get the lenses i want. Sure, there are many lenses but i always gotta calculate the 1,6* factor and suddenly some lenses become not what i really wanted  :'( If i want 50mm i get like ..44mm or 56 or something like this e.g.

Hmmm.  I'm considering upgrading my T1i to a 6D, but my 100 2.0 and 200 2.8 give me the perfect focal length for indoor sports.  A 70-200 would likely get me 90%+ of the right focal length for outdoor sports. 
Does it possibly make sense to stick with a crop sensor for telephoto/sports needs and a full frame with a "normal" lens for general photography?

I think many people use a 7D for sports. Other option would be to get 1,4x teleconverter.

While i like DPP the layout just doesnt work well for me. LR gives me a better feeling and i think it looks nicer too :)

EOS Bodies / Re: 6D Likely Price Trend
« on: December 03, 2012, 08:34:56 AM »
Hi,

My wife is giving birth in July and I will have a 6D by then to take pics of the kid.

My only question is when to buy.  Is it likely that the 6D will drop in price from Dec. 2011 to July 2012?

December 2012 to July 2013, isnt it?

I see a Mark Rothko comment coming

+1
One of his paintings sold this year for $86.9 million USD :o

I think its a little different about him because he always paints like "that". I also think it looks more "natural" cuz he has to paint everything himself, choose the colors, the canvas etc.
Ive never seen his paintings in real but i know a lot of famous art pieces just have something special about them thats hard to put in words. Its that magic what makes an artist, the magic that awakes emotions in your hear and puts thoughts in ur brain. Drawings from "Miro" also look easy to make but thats not whats its all about. And its like 100% handcraft.

About abstract photography i think in way too many cases it just looks like somebody clicked randomly around added a lot of scripts or such to get a random final resul that just "looks so damn artsy".

If u just randomly paint around on a canvas im quite sure u wont suddenly come up with a miro or rothko or kandinsky or whatever abstract piece. Digital work doesnt include 100% handcraft imho but a lot of things u can just tell the computer to do and then it will do it. Thats why i think it cant ever be as cool as "real abstract art".

Ive more respect for people creating something so simple i always wonder "omg mr. rothko why didnt i come up with this for the past years??" :)

But sorry that picture i mentioned earlier look totally like a douchebag photoshop job and you could buy lot of leicas for the price it sold for....

Only the first looks good to me. The colors in the other ones (especially the hair) dont look nice for me.
But i wanna ask you...dont u think that photo is totally blown out in a lot of areas?

Canon General / Re: Is it worth it...for me?
« on: December 02, 2012, 05:54:25 AM »
Get 5dmk3 first. It will be your companion for years. Then just add 50mm 1.4 lens from whatever brand u prefer. FF already got a bit more of shallow DOF and i think 50mm 1.2L is nice but its not good if its gonna be about the only lens u are using. It really only shines at wide open and besides that it gets beaten by cheaper alternatives.
Of course the higher f/numbers wont give u bad results its just....I think 50mm 1.2L shouldnt be the first pro lens if u dont already have several other lenses for backup.

and believe me u will come to a point in ur photo career where u want to try something else than bokeh craving

Perhaps even the 6D might be good for you. You should really test it out in a store in ur area. Maybe u like it so u can save some more money compared to 5dmk3.
Besides that i think its not about "am i worth the FF camera and L lens?". If you are happy with what you are doing u are a good photographer.
