EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 100D Detailed Specs Appear
« on: March 19, 2013, 12:55:51 PM »

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.

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.

Three Legged thing - Brian or smaller in carbon fiber. Absolutely minuscule thing.

Tamron 24-70 VC
Tamron 70-200 VC

These lenses are giving canon a serious run for my monies.

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?

Technical Support / Re: Aperture/Shutter speed/ISO
« on: March 18, 2013, 11:44:23 AM »
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. ;)
