Lenses / Re: Lens purchase strategy
« on: March 01, 2013, 04:46:05 PM »
My strategy is simply.  Buy what I want.  If I don't have the money, save or readjust expenses until I can afford it.  Or tell my wife that near duplications are there in case both of us need to shoot at the same time.

Until 6 months ago I was drivng a 12 year old car - photography gear often wins out.

I still drive a Mint '91 Lariat F-150, Why buy a new car? That's like 200 F/2 monies.  :P

My strategy was to buy the minimum amount of lenses needed. I found three that could do everything I needed and one to cover all those in-case of failure.

24L II - Fast wide prime

50L - GP fast 50mm

135L - Fast Tele & Portrait Lens

24-105 - Covers all these in one lens.

*Big glass of choice would be 200L + 1.4/2x tele-converters.

I've had great experiences with Adorama books. Check 'em out.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Photos from Fuji X100s

Impressive. Fuji always had good color since fuji-chrome & Velvia days.

Too bad I'd probably get a g15 before a X100s. :|

My wife took my RX1. I might get x100s for travel.

I could live with a fixed 35mm but, I'd probably buy a small Hot-shoe'd camera for strobist stuff. The X100S is 1299$ and with speedlites I'd be shooting HSS @ ISO 100-400. Why pay that? I'd could get the same from a G15 plus a zoom lens for traveling around.

It's nice, but It wouldn't fit into my system well. The size is good, Price is good, IQ is excellent, but just not for me.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Cheapest way

I really want to go full frame by the end of June as I am the photographer for a wedding at the end of that month, but I am on a very tight budget. I would like to buy the Canon EOS 5D Mark II and the 24-105mm lens; I live in the UK and would like to know the best way/places of getting this camera and lens at the cheapest price possible. Yes I understand this may mean not getting this equipment new.

Thanks very much!  :)

A 24-105L is a good lens but It wouldn't do weddings well Unless you do alot of flash.

Lets say 2000$ is your budget.

5D2 + 24-105 = 2000$ used.

or

5Dc
24-105
50mm 1.8 + 100 F/2
580 ExII

for about the same used price.

I'd honestly choose the latter setup, but that's just me.

Technical Support / Re: Teleconverter and DOF
« on: March 01, 2013, 11:29:12 AM »
I believed if you stay in the same spot, and zoom in, your perspective and DOF are the same. Only when you move the camera or mess with the aperture is when DOF changes.

5D MK III Sample Images / Re: 12,800ISO 5DMKIII Images

7d owners steer clear,this thread is pure pain. :'(
Nice shots though
+1

+2. The 7D was pushing it @ 3200 & Limited useage @ 6400. Downsizing the 7D files to 8MP made it much more bareable.

Tested it and yes, it's a bit louder than normal cleaning.

FF has spoiled me but I do miss the reach occasionally.

My dying 250,000 actuationed 5Dc with heavy use didn't look that terrible. It has to be rubbing on something to wear like that.

The MK3 is the way to go, as a previous 7D user, the AF is simply sublime.
