I know, but it's still overrated. I did this on a supposed "outdated" sensor tech from a camera everyone loves to bash for DR. Heck, with alittle more time I could do this same shot on a d30.  :P

... provided the scene doesn't exceed the capabilities of the D30.

No, provided that I understand how to get as many stops of DR I need.

DR is over-rated.

Why would you say that? It's thanks to what is still GOOD DR that you were able to recover that sky! :P It's not the best of the best right now, but one of my points all along is that Canon sensors don't have "bad" DR either. 

Having good dynamic range, or I guess Exposure Range as Ctein would call it, is what allowed you to do what you did with that photo.

The quest for DR has been around and argued for decades. I just believe it's an issue of technique rather than technology.

With a 10$ adapter, its canon capable.  :P

plus one... how can the 200mm f/2L IS be made better?

+1, only possible way is to lower its weight, but a 200/2 will never be light for a 200mm lens.

+2, but perhaps the return of the Legendary F/1.8?

first thing, you can shoot any wedding with any gear...even with a smartphone. be confident! you don't need a Canon 1Dx to get stunning pictures or great memorable pictures that'll last a life time.



I agree that the gear doesn't really matter to produce great photo's, but once you start to take on paid and serious work, you'll need the basic kit. Kinda reminds me of this....

View some Ektachrome or Velvia slides. That is my vision of a film look.

Canon just needs to fix the EOS-M. We don't need another line-up of cameras.

With 3500$ in a Win7 Pro machine, you can get a monster of a machine. I mean like the equivalent mac would cost 6000$+... Add two Dell 27" Ultrasharps, you'll be set for 5 years easily. I'm still using my machine I built in 2006, runs fantastic!

You can run all your adobe apps Plus you can even Run AVID for serious production work if needed. FCP is not really needed anymore. Check it out.

Mac's are good for COCOA coding and App production. They also look pretty but is it worth it for video and still production anymore? To me, no but you must decide for yourself.

A set of LEE GND's and ND's will do wonders to landscape photos.

Oooooo.  :o  Fancy...

How's the color compare to the AB-Ring flash?

Does color matter?  This is analogous to comparing a 7D to a 1Dx

i.e. Dynalite around $2K or more and the AB at $400

Color matters. Generally all analog studio strobes color shift @ different power levels. ABs are terrible offenders and simply asked how a 2K dynalite performs.

Not arguing that... Arguing does it really matter since the comparison merits a 500% price difference.

yes, It does matter.

You could just shoot a 1/160. My novatron's were complaining and My El cheapo cowboy triggers we're slow. :\
