Only L Lenses come with hoods.

Lenses / 50mm 1.2L + 24mm 1.4L on crop body?
« on: June 08, 2012, 07:02:41 AM »
Hi there,

sorry for opening up another thread about the 50mm 1.2L. I searched around a little and didnt find the answer i was looking for.

I got a Rebel body cuz my philosophy always was that one day i will go full frame anyway so i better buy good lenses first, body second. I bought the 1100D cuz it delivers the same image quality like the other crop bodys from canon and thats all what i care for.

So far i just got a 50mm 1.8II and im quite happy with it but i think the bokeh looks really harsh.  I never use it smaller than f/2.8.

I was thinking about buying the 50mm 1.2L and i wanna know if that works out on a crop body or if the 1.2L only starts to shine on full frame?

Same applies to the 24mm 1.4L. Makes sense to buy it for my crop body? I like the wider view i can get from it. I dont need a really super wide lens cuz im just doing portraits. And im just a bokeh addict :P

Oh and i just dont like zooms. I dont know why....even when i was just using a Finepix point and shoot and had no ideas about rule of thirds n stuff.....i always refused to use the zoom on it. Just dont like it.

So my basic question: L Lenses make sense on a crop body?


i dont mind it probably gonna balance out badly with the 1100D. Im just a hobbyist. Dont HAVE TO carry my camera all day. Well and im not so weak :P

Hope somebody here got a crop body and the named lenses and can give me some more insight. :)

Maybe even sample pictures?! Would be much appreciated.

If it gets DIGIC 5 thats another good upgrade.

Just rent urself a 7D for a day and u should already be able to check out the image quality regarding higher ISO. Or just buy urself a 1100D since it uses the same sensor as the 7D. Image quality is the same too. Not much money wasted in case u dont like it.

Basically people who don't know how to shoot and have shakey hands.

Auto ISO + automatic lighting optimization! Dont forget!

I always wonder how a tiny mirrorless camera and telezoom lenses will balance out. New lens mount would suck too. Please include an adapter.

some say once you go black theres no goin back. I say once you go 50L theres no goin 1.4 or 1.8.

And once you go asian you never go caucasian ;)

I always wanted to get the 50mm 1.2L for my crop body but i think thats a bad decision :(
Using the 50mm 1.8II at the moment. Thinking if i should get the 1.4...

74 views and no reply, thanks guys, perhaps i should have put D800 in the title

Better you get good answers than everybody who reads ur post writes something no matter if its useful.

- Canon 1100D cannot compete with Nikon D3200

D3200 Body only is 600 Euro, 1100D Body only is 330 Euro. Thats a big difference and i dont think D3200 is supposed to be the lowest entry level DSLR.

Yes but the haters say "why u need 36 MP if u downsize anyway?". Well i think its a BIG advantage being able to downsize much. If it leads to better IQ in the end...who cares? It just makes using the clone stamp a lot easier for example. Which reduces time needed for post processing and so it saves time totally that u can use on something else. Its just an advantage no matter what.

Still i stick to Canon cuz i just love their primes :)

Same procedure as every year. I wonder how its possible that people take good photos since the invention of photography. Reading here always seems like last years cameras are producing bad images.

Im going so far to say that if u see some award winning photo on the internet somewhere u cant even tell if it was taken with a nikon or canon or probably something else unless u read the exif information...

I like the idea of having a Canon high MP body. I shoot mainly portraits and i think high MP are good for this as u can retouch and resize larger images just much easier than small ones.
And generally downsizing large images gives off more detailed shots and less noticable noise imho.

I also think Canon should make a more clear path regarding their cameras. I have the impression they want to produce some kind of all-in-all-wonder camera thats good for everything. My impression is that just confuses the customers as they only wonder "so which camera i need now???" cuz different models have so much in common.
