I would appreciate a 100-400 2.8 :-)

You must be a back surgeon.

 ;D

Or a back Surgeon Married to a Chiropractor.

Or a back Surgeon Married to a Chiropractor who then buys said 100-400mm F2.8

Sigma 35mm 1.4 or Canon 24L II

Either would be great.

I hope this is canons year for overdue primes as well.

35L II

50mm 1.4 II or 50L II would be nice.

135mm F/1.8L IS USM would be extremely nice.

Did you even look at the lines?  ??? Its pretty obvious.

That the 50/1,4 is better yes, and you can se that also in photo zone measurement figures at 2.0 , 2,8 etc etc

I guess you didn't get the memo.  :-X

You have rejected four recognized test sites results concerning 50/1.2 and resolution compared  to 50/1,4.
Then you have  have mixed up  the results from
http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/ISO-12233-Sample-Crops.aspx?Lens=403&Camera=453&Sample=0&FLI=0&API=0&LensComp=115&CameraComp=0&FLIComp=0&APIComp=0

As you can se, 50/1,2 are less sharp than 50/1.4  at F-1,4

The center is better on the 50L and there is less haze in shots i've taken from the 50L vs the 1.4.

over all better resolution with 50/1,4   at 1,4  and 2,0 than with 50/1,2

Nah, Look at the diagonal lines mid-frame on the 50L @ F/2, It has better contrast. Its the same story up to F/2.8.

Lighting / Selling off my old strobes, What to get next?
« on: January 16, 2013, 08:15:54 PM »
I'll be auctioning off my hard-working novatron strobes until they sell. I love the power but the flash duration is too slow for me to do any splash stuff.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=181064006334#ht_710wt_1244

I've got about a 5 Grand budget and I've been looking into 4x PCB Einsteins but I ask, Is there any other options I should know about?

Where's RLPhoto? He is ready to ditch his Holy trinity member for this baby

Damn straight. I'll pitch my 135L into the fire for this lens.

2000$? Don't care

3000$? Don't care

4000$? Get a 200mm F/2.

Lenses / Re: Canon 24-70 ii - another superlative
« on: January 16, 2013, 03:30:46 PM »
Agreed.
The 24-70 F/2.8 II and the 70-200 F/2.8 II are the only L glass I use on my 5D MK3 now.
I sold all my primes when I got the 24-70, it's that good :)

ET

-1000... I own both II versions of the 24-70 and the 70-200. Great lenses but could never replace the primes, that's just a bad move selling them off  :o 200 f/2 blows the doors off the 70-200, then there is the 85L, 50L, 35L, 24L, 135L... the list goes on and on... all of which offer something that zooms don't.

They are tools... zooms are great for general stuff but primes take over where zooms leave you... if you don't have them available another pro will take your buisness.

Well, I wouldn't know anything about a pro stealing business.

But I will always sacrifice some versatility for speed, and primes do that quite nicely.

If they made a 135mm f/1.8 IS, I'd lose complete interest in this lens. Until then, I continue to weight the value of this lens in my work.
