Lenses / Re: Keep or sell??

Keep it. If your 85mm fails, you'd have the 50mm as a backup and it doesn't weigh anything.

I doubt it, but I'd love to be wrong on this one.

A 50mm for full body portraits and an 85/135mm for tight shots.

I updated my 2 Year old Self portrait to this newer version 2.0.

I like it. 200 f/2?

Yes, The Ultimate Portrait lens that I could never afford. Its a CPS Loaner and figured might as well make a cool studio shot with its massive front element.

The actual photo was taken on old Faithful 135L @ F/13.

Yes, with competing High MP FF bodies, in the near future.

If its wider and shaper than the nikon, expect these two things.

1. A ridiculous price tag.

2. A stupendous waiting list.

If you count the Crop factor, sure why not? afterall, 300mm FOV isn't that tele.

Ah...so crop factor applied to focal length, not just FoV?  You must be in some weird, Star Trek-ian mirrored universe where the normal laws of optical physics don't apply.  Say "Hi" to evil Mr. Spock while you're there...

Just imagine a world where 35mm didn't exist and only M4/3 did. Then we'd all be saying how 150mm is very tele and unless I'm mistaken, 150mm on m4/3 is pretty tele.

Context is important, but since everyone shoots 35mm, I just put it in those terms. Eh Neuro?

Unfortunatly, no long glass is available yet for micro 4/3 :(

300mm F/2?

That's a 300mm lens?  Do you work for Panasonic's marketing department?   ::)

If you count the Crop factor, sure why not? afterall, 300mm FOV isn't that tele.  ;D

EOS-M / Re: EOS M Autofocus Performance Won't Improve via Firmware [CR2]
« on: February 26, 2013, 02:44:43 PM »
It a un-wise move to adopt a First gen product when its the only option available.

...unless you need the feature(s) that are only available in that first gen product.  Granted, I haven't run across that scenario for photography...but it happens often in my day job.

So, EOS-M Gen2 won't be better and make the Gen1 cheaper? And avoiding problems by not adopting a gen1 system until gen2 is released?

Sure, a second generation version will improve upon the original, and make the original cheaper.  But if you require a feature or features of the first version, you put up with the problems (not like the 2nd gen won't have it's own set of them) and you pay the premium.

Exactly, my original post.

"No surprise here. 1st Gen product."

No need, 50L is king.  8)

A Metabones Like tele-compressor from canon would even out the playing field on APS vs FF EVILS. Lets just see If they're smart enough to do so.

Then you are not working with a true optical image

So, where's the issue?
