I wouldn't of picked any of these lenses but thats just me.

The 70-200F4L is you best bet.

Whoop-dee-doo. Now where's my 135mm F/1.8L IS?

1. Aperture
2. Shutter-speed
3. ISO

Usually in that priority, but If working with flash

1. Shutter-speed (More specifically Sync Speed)
2. Aperture
3. ISO

Lenses / Re: Canon 24-70mmL II v Canon 50mmL 1.2
« on: March 18, 2013, 11:38:52 AM »
It's a matter of needs.

Do you need speed? If so, the 50L is over 2 Stops faster than the 24-70LII. It's the sharpest 50mm design canon makes from f/1.2-2.8 in the center, and generally where it matters most for portraits.

For everything else, the 24-70LII is better.

Sure, If it's at good as the nikkor 14-24mm Why not?

Well with a 35L/85L II combo I felt owning a 50L is just a tad redundant and got rid of it....but some of you are tempting me to get this back in my collection.

P.S. you will be doing me a favor if you tell me it is redundant and totally unnecessary.

It would be redundant in your prime setup. You chose the 35mm as your standard lens, having a 50mm isn't needed.

Just use a blower to blow off the focusing screen. FF cameras tend to pickup more dust and my previous 5Dc & current MK3 have had this issue. Just a few blows of air and it's usually gone.

If its Film rebel 2000 size and still an SLR, I see no reason to buy mirror-less.

Look at the brenzer method. A practical use of that idea.

You're right, I suppose I could run out onto the football field with my f/1.4 lens :).

That's the spirit. ;)

Wait, I thought gear didn't matter.

It doesn't.

I think it just sounds cool to say equipment does not matter...
Of course it does!! One needs the right equipment for the specific job.

Sighhhhhhh.  One thing you people on here lack is humor, or recognition of humor.

I know it does.  To say that it doesn't is insane.  Maybe not in the film era, but I'm getting shots now that there is no way possible in the past.  Some of them the ONLY reason I get them is because of my camera.  Nothing else.  No amount of technique or creativity or whatever would get me some of the shots I'm getting.  So to say gear doesn't matter is objectively wrong.

Which brings me to my point.  Nikon makes a lens that takes advantage of the full resolution of a D800/E and now you have something.  Until then, you don't.

Everything is possible, it's just a matter of convienece.

I made the same jump and I'll never buy crop again.

Let's not disparage all crop sensors.  They do give you extra reach and when shooting in good light outdoors with nice lenses, they give a near equal quality of image to their full frame counterparts.  And if you are shooting sports, either the 60D, 7D, and presumably the 70D will give you more frames per second than the 5d mkii and some 1D models. 

Along with the extra reach of a the 1.6 conversion factor and you have yourself some great quality images.  Where they suffer in comparison is low light because of the amount of grain.  But if you are indoors and using a flash, that can be mitigated... So it is what it is.

That's fine. It still doesn't change that I'll never buy a crop camera again.
