Hi there,

im seriously considering getting the Samyang/Rokinon/Walimex 35mm 1.4 lens since the Canon L lenses are too pricy for me yet i still want really good image quality. Greedy me...

Anyway what are your experiences with the Samyang 35mm 1.4 without using live view! I plan to use it solely with the viewfinder cuz liveview is just too slow for my needs. In my experience if i wanna take a portrait even my friends become somewhat nervous and "camera shy" so i wanna be quick when focussing.

Im mostly running around with m42 manual focus lenses on my APS-C so i imagine it cant be that much different having the Samyang but my fastest m42 35mm lens is just f/2.8

Is it possible to handhold 100mm 2.8L macro without a flash?

From what I hear, Canon Rumors only advertises with tattoos on foreheads. Wrists get covered too often. ;D

Forehead advertising is so outdated :(

100mm macro 2.8 is as good as the L version of it.

Lightroom doesn't let you type in the number of pixels like DPP.

With LR4 you can do it :)

Did u ever check the 39 AF points urself? Imho its totally marketing bullshit since they are all cramped up in the middle of the viewfinder! It sounds great "wow 39" but in real its not that cool...

Imho its no advantage over the 6D.

The 50mm 1.2L strongest advantage is the bokeh. If sharpness is more important for you then get the 50mm 1.4 or sigma :)

Third Party Manufacturers / Bauer flash question
« on: October 01, 2012, 02:35:39 PM »

somewhere along the lines of my interest into yongnuo flashes i somewhat happened to get an old Bauer flash for free! Its the model 5028 servo. Im just not sure if i can use it with my eos system or if its gonna fry it up cuz of electrical differences. Any experiences?

The 5DII, for example.  If you set M mode and Auto ISO, the ISO was fixed at 400.

Uhm then whats the point of choosing auto instead of fixed ISO urself? Seems like some kind of bug to me. But 7D also confused me that u couldnt even set an auto iso limit for such a long time!

My 1100D can do this too. Auto ISO in M mode. Plus it always allowed me to set maximum auto ISO which wasnt available in 7D til the latest update if im correct. Im just not sure what this thread is all about. Everything is just normal like this isnt it?

Well Im a bit confused still. My aim is to get just one flash basically since Im a fan of available light, wide open lenses and I mainly shoot portraits. The flash would just help indoors sometimes.

I dont wanna use the inbuilt flash of my 1100D. And i also dont wanna set the flash settings manually because i just go not much experience using flash and photography generally.

Do i get it right that i should get the lastest Yong Nuo flash model + the latest flash transmitter? So i can place the flash somewhere on the side for example and the transmitter will tell it to shoot?


Lenses / Re: What 3 lenses do you dream of and long to own?

- Noctilux 50mm f/0.95 (need camera also :o )

- 35mm f/1.2 lens (needs to exist first) so..

- 35mm f/1.4 L II

Even if I had the money for a 200mm f/2 L, I don't think I would get one because I'd be paranoid about damaging it.

If u had the money for a 200mm f/2 youd also have the money for getting it repaired. Plus the lens is built very sturdy :D
