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.

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.

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.

nice side by side (literally) comparison between D600 and 5Dmk3:
Small | Large

EOS Bodies / Re: Is Canon EOS-1S the Name? [CR1]

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.

EOS 30 has all the nice features (ECF) and decent AF points count and you can find them for less than $100.

I can discuss facts whenever you want
I do not think I am the one who has trouble to understands facts= DR full well capacity, QE and read out noise+ banding and pattern noise

First of all - all that bolding is childish and unnecessary, it doesn't really help you make your point come through, it just makes you  seem rude.

Secondly, stop confusing DR with exposure latitude, DR isn't actually about how much you can under/over expose, especially not about doing it in post-process. Seriously.
