Wow, the new 18-55mm kit lens doesn't have that ludicrous trapezoid shape the old on did. It actually looks more pro.  ::)

Lenses / Re: Do I need the EF 85mm f/1.8 USM?

I'd ask why there is no 50mm, but that's just me.

Personally, I'd buy the 100mm F/2 over the 85mm. A small prime like these can be a compact tele when you don't want to lug the 70-200.

In the long run, flash will become your friend. Getting a higher end flash now could save alot of headaches later if you decide to expand on it. I would recommend a 430EXII to start and jump to a 600RT system later on.

I once ignorantly believed it would be possible to shoot everything natural light. How naive... I should have bought the 580II straight off the bat but got the 430II. That taught me alot about basic on-camera flash technique but I was always short on power. Maybe coming from a studio strobe, you might want to just jump straight into a 600RT for output and RT later on.

Could you demonstrate where the DR of a canon camera has limited you in real world shooting?

Any shooting situations where blown highlights and clipped shadows appear, Nikon and Sony handle better at brining that back in line.

Please show us some photos where the DR of a canon camera limited your creativity in real world shooting.

Photos indoors beside windows or under shade with a single shot. Nothing will limit creativity but using the better tool for the job will always be the choice. Canon falls behind in dynamic range.

Big talk and no photos = Worthless opinion.

Its fun to see you so worked up when theres plenty of evidence of DR superiority and IQ of Nikon Sony. Sorry I dont spend all day on my computer. Im on my phone.

Nah, Just trolling the troll. DR is irrelevant if you don't take pictures.  ;)

Lenses / Re: Why some lens says "macro"?
« on: March 19, 2013, 02:03:08 PM »
Its a marketing term, I consider a lens macro when its reproduction ratio is at least 1/2:1.

With prices like this, why would anyone buy a 6D?

I have 4 canon dslr bodies and a set of L lenses to go with them. The NEX system has Zeiss lenses just for their system which are excellent in IQ. The 16MP sensor in the nex 6 is excellent, AND you get AF all the time.

Canon is way behind Nikon and Sony as far as IQ and innovative products.

Are you sure you got that right ... You mean you have 4 DSLR canon bodies and L lenses and they have poor IQ as compared to Nikons and Sony?

Troll post if ever I saw one!

Yeah Im sure I have it right. I have 5d, 7d, 5d2 and 1dsm
Nikon d800 blows away canon in terms of iq and Sony has been much better at new products and innovations.

Ive been with canon for a decade now and a cps member also. Just very disappointed in their cameras lately. I will not buy Nikon because d800 is too big for my hands.

May I ask, has the canon system ever held back your creativity? If so, in what area's? I'd be hard pressed to find something I can solidly say that canon equipment has held me back.

Color depth and dynamic range are much greater on the Nikon and Sony cameras. I cannot push my RAW files as much as i want.

Anyone can shoot any camera and get similar results. Just some cameras do it better.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Crazy... go Nikon?
« on: March 18, 2013, 04:31:50 PM »
I switched completely over to Nikon because of shadow noise and both the 16-35VR and 14-24mm. I own the 16-35 but have used the 14-24 several times. 14mm is WIDE, and not needed much. The 16-35 is much, much better than the 17-40L that i formerly owned.

You can't go wrong with Canon or Nikon. It all depends on your needs. I know the AF of the D800 (I have it) is astounding. Can't comment on the 5d3, but I'm sure it's equal or better. To me it's all about which lenses you need. If I shot a lot of telephoto, it'd be Canon for price/performance/availability. As such, with wide angles it's mostly Nikon with the advantage. And forget manual focus primes for all but the most static of situations. AF zooms are much more useful, even if they're "NOT QUITE" as sharp.

From previous experience with a D700, the 61-Point AF destroys the 51-point Nikon system. It's in a whole league of its own.

Lenses / Re: 35L or 50L?
« on: March 18, 2013, 04:28:56 PM »
The 50L is the sharpest 50mm canon makes in the center from F1.2-2.8. If this fits your usage, I'd get one.

I wouldn't buy a 35L, Get the Sigma 1.4.
