In a year or two if work treats me decently I'll probably upgrade to a 5DIII, the camera hit about 99.9% of everything I wanted it to be, and if I could afford it (fat chance), I'd seriously consider switching to Lieca after thorough test driving, it appears to suit my style better for photo only purposes, I've looked into just about every other system in the same range, and nothing else does it for me.

Yeah i also wish i had a Leica. M9 monochrome to be exact :) Its just too damn expensive for me. Probably I could save for a M9 Body but oh well then i gotta pay the same price or even more for a lens :(

Well my conclusion is....no changes in the near future.

35mm f/2.0 lens is any good? Probably the only other lens i will buy before going fullframe. Just remember i like to shoot at wide open usually. Maybe 35mm 1.4L makes more sense? :P

I only got the 50mm 1.8 II. Perhaps i will just buy the 35mm f/2.0 (is it any good?) and then leave it like that until i buy a fullframe camera. I dont need a tele lens.

I just wonder if Canon will release another fullframe body. The 5D Mark 3 is waaay more expensive than the 5D MK 2. Nearly 1500 Euro difference.  And its a difference for me to save up money like that. Was the 5D mk2 also that damn expensive when it was released?! Im not going fullframe soon, so im 99,9% sure mk2 will be sold out everywhere when i wanna upgrade.

Only L Lenses come with hoods.

Lenses / 50mm 1.2L + 24mm 1.4L on crop body?

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.
