The 24-70 F/4L is more DOA than previously imagined.

1. When do you think the 1st FF mirrorless will arrive - for $3000 or less of course?
2. Which company will bring to the market first? Sony, Nikon, Samsung, Fujitsu etc….I will not bet on Canon
I love this lens. It's small, fast, focuses much faster than the 1.2 and it is a great value. What's not to love?
I prefer the 100mm F/2.
I am thinking about both.... why the 100/2 over the 85/1.8 ?
Does anyone have comparison shots?
It's a little different for each photo, but in general (in Lightroom) for the photo of the little girl:
Don't be afraid to be extra generous with your sliders, especially in tone curve. Faded color does wonders for portraits, just don't go overboard.
Also, while being generous in tone curve, be frugal with split toning. A little bit goes a long way.
I think you would miss your 24L... When I went on my cruise, it seemed like everything on the ship was BIG, and my WA got a lot of use... Same with Cancun - if you take any day trips and visit the ruins or tidal fish ponds - you will want the WA... The skies and the clouds are vibrant - bring a CPL...
I will definitely bring my CPL's.
My A1000 IS sucks. It doesn't even have manual controls or Raw shooting. Maybe a used s95 or s100 or G12 to use with my 580EX II?
Ditto on the 24L. I would strongly suggest you go light. Just the SLR, 24L + 24-105 and maybe flash. Also, the 16-35L is my favorite lens. If I could only have two lenses, the 16-35 would probably be one of them. You still have to take the other stuff, CPL, maybe amber gel for flash, cleaning stuff, batteries, media, chargers, etc. My point is that the SLR creates a whole giant world of extra stuff to carry. I think you would likely be happy with just a G12. Or G12 during the day and maybe the 5D3+24L at night. It's a lot to carry around. I hope you have a Black Rapid strap or something to keep it out of your way.
Remember, the more you take, the more is left in your cabin, could be stolen, etc.
Also, if you plan to go swimming, do beach trips, sit by the pool, etc consider a rugged waterproof camera like the Canon D20 or a GoPro. Lots of fun, zero worry. Decent pictures, esp underwater. Try to get away from the camera a little, it is a vacation after all. Have a great time!!
B&W Kaesemann Circular Polarizer'sJust as an FWIW, I've been told that the MRC Kaesemann circular polarizers are optically identical to the standard MRC circular polarizers. The difference is the construction. The Kaesemann filters are simply sealed around the edge to protect the polarizing foil against humidity and other environmental conditions.
So, if you live in and never leave the desert, a standard MRC polarizer might be money better spent.
At least, that's what I've been told.
