Converted from Croation currency it's roughly 950-1000euros, so in US it'd probably go for around 900$.

Lenses / Re: Portrait: 85mm 1.8 or 100mm 2.0
« on: November 20, 2012, 12:21:44 AM »
I had the 85/1.8 and sold it after moving to FF, didn't like the working distance. recently I shot few commercial environmental portraits with 100/2 and I gotta admit 85 is better performer.. OoF is on par, perhaps even 100/2 has a slight edge (matter of personal taste actually) but it lacks that sweet crispiness 85 used to deliver for me.

Could be the beam grid - on my 5Dc focus locks instantly with 550ex but is sluggish and takes few seconds with 430ex.

Lenses / Re: EF 24-70 f/4L IS & EF 35 f/2 IS

When you compare MTF charts for 35L and 35IS published on canon website this new lens seems even more desirable.
Ditto for 4  stops of IS vs. 1 f/stop.

Seems like I'm part of that minority of people who are actualy grateful of having IS in a 35/2 lens.

Lighting / Re: Speedlite 550ex for DSLR's?
« on: November 09, 2012, 08:18:13 AM »
550ex works great on my 5dc but for some odd reason it won't allow me rear curtain sync on 5dmk2. AF beam assist works great on both cameras. It's a monster flash worth every penny.

How much for the Smegma 35/1.4 Partisan?

5:4 Crop mode with VF support would be one nice addition.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 1Dx ISO100 high DR shadows SNR improvement
« on: November 04, 2012, 04:38:40 PM »
@OP - if you're that desperate to pull +3EV in shadows you could use split-toning action in PShop with (obviously) using blurred layer to pull those shadows up.

here's a dload link> http://www.mediafire.com/?po4x8dcgg5msr6a for that action, let me know if it works for ya.

EOS Bodies / Re: Is Canon EOS-1S the Name? [CR1]
« on: October 06, 2012, 10:27:41 AM »
9000$? Why not just get a MF system then?  :o

My thoughts exactly, that Pentax 645D looks even more tempting after this rumor.

Lenses / Re: If you could only have 2 lenses for a wedding...
« on: October 05, 2012, 11:19:37 AM »
I've shot few weddings with 5Dc, Smegma 24/1.8 and EF 85/1.8 - so that would be my 2 wedding lenses if I had to restrict myself, since they cover almost anything needed.

EOS Bodies / Re: POLL: How much $$$ will the high-mp eos cost?
« on: September 30, 2012, 12:43:28 AM »

If the high MP camera cost over than 7K, Nikon will be very happy.

If they ask more than 6k I WILL make pentax very happy.

645d dropped below 9k point as of recently.
