I made a point to insure everything. Filters, Softboxes, light stands, the works because those little things stolen at one time add up to a significant amount of $$$$.

Oh you mean like the 35 1.4 which is a big ass dream contrary to the older 50 1.4 and 85 1.4 which just fuck up on every full frame?
Not on every full frame. My Sigma 85 works like a dream. AF is fine.
Don't blame the tools for poor craftsmanship. Infact, since the d800 is doing so well for you, let's see some photos you've taken with it. Please do post.
I've posted heavily adjusted d800 shots on here last year. They're awesome.
Can't do that with a 5d2!! no bloody way at all
I could tell you where to look ... but...
Let's see you post something from your fabulous 5d2... Like some of those test shots I requested.
Aglet, why u no Nikon already? My take after eating my popcorn.Actually, my FF gear is now Nikon, but that's not the point either.
Aglet - There is FPN on 5D2 files.
General response - Don't lift the shadows +3 stops. 5D2 is a fantastic camera.
Aglet - Here is a file that shows the FPN.
General Response - Don't lift the shadows +3 stops. 5D2 is a fantastic camera.
Aglet - Well Prove me wrong! supply me photos!
General Response - Here's some photos. Don't lift the shadows +3 stops. 5D2 is a fantastic camera.
Aglet - That doesn't mean nothing!
Rlphoto - :| Pass the popcorn.
FPN on my 5d2 showed up at less than a 2-stop push applied to levels that should have been high enough to not exhibit a problem (e.g. -3 EV down from metered)
Repeating for (who's keeping track of how many times now?)
If anyone of you 5d2-lovers actually HAS one, and are brave enough to show, or at least TELL, us how it performs in simple tests, as outlined a pg or 2 back, then please do so. (RL?...)
I'd like to compare it to mine, which might have been a bit of a lemon in the FPN area.
If you're willing to post a sample of a pushed raw file, kindly include a full res crop so we can see pixel-per-pixel, not scaled down so small as to obliterate FPN in the averaging.
I know its B&W, but why? The 40mm is cheap. Its like me buying a B&W filter for a 50mm 1.8.Why a UV filter on the Shorty Forty?
It's B&W 007 Clear MRC: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/475488-REG/B_W_66_1001698_52mm_007_Protection_Clear.html
