Pay to play. Quite straightforward.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 1Dx ISO100 high DR shadows SNR improvement
« on: November 06, 2012, 12:53:55 PM »
If you nail your exposures on either camera, only good photos will result.

.....but why would you do this when it's so much fun to intentionally underexpose an image by 5 stops then crank on the sliders in Lightroom. Yeeehawww, keep pushing those sliders over to the right!

Good times :)

  That all above is  not about the fun of making underexposed shots and pulling them up but about  normal 0EV shots for high DR scenes  and where it is desired  to see details in deep shadows instead of noise or instead of totally black areas.   And how to push 1Dx limits in this area.
   If one is trying to make fun of something  and this one does not fully realize what is the whole subject about  then yes  this making people to smile but not about the joke itself  but rather about the person who tried to make such joke))
Have fun  )))

I love quotes taken out of context.   ::)

35L is nice, but it's not quite razor sharp until F/1.8

My opinion on the 24-70L f/4 is that for 1500$, it's exactly how I originally imagined it. DOA.

This lens should have been a affordable FF lens for users not needing 2.8 or the extra reach of the 24-105L. It proved to be neither of those things.

What do you want? Canon to sell it for $500 and make a LOSS then go BUST ::)

"it proved to be neither"  - that's past tense! Affordability is subjective...depends on the consumer, plus this lens is not out yet :P

Go back 6 months on CR and read how many contributors said @ $3.5k the 5D3 was DOA vs D800 and then look at the CR commentators that said 24-70mm mk II @ $2.3k was DOA.....several months on and they're in the kit bags of many CR bloggers. LOL

Well, I just picked up a new 24-105L for 750$. That alone says enough about the value for money of this lens. I could buy a 24-105L and a 100mm 2.8L macro for almost the price of the 24-70 F/4L.

Yes. Past Tense because it you cannot change it now that its been released. Its not cheap, its has a shorter reach and the 24-105L is already sharp.

The 5D3 is too expensive and many agree. I didn't pay full price for mine, I paid 3000$. The Fire sale on evil bay from adorama for 2799$ also says otherwise.

24-70 2.8L II is a work horse professional lens. We need speed and you pay premium for that but F/4? For 1500$? Bah!

Congratulations! At the MSRP of 1500$ for the 24-70 f/4L IS. This lens is now

DOA.

I agree if purchased separately, but the theory was all along that this price will be just a marketing joke to be able to sell heavily "discounted" kits with the 6d making the new camera body more attractive.

I wouldn't get your hopes up too high. The 5D3+24-105L kit was still around the combined MSRP price when sold originally.

I could buy a 24-105L and 100mm 2.8L Macro used for just the price of the absurd 24-70 F/4L

Canon continues to make a series of mistakes on they're product lines. Perhaps a lot like Kodak eh?

Canon is acting quite a bit like Kodak lately.

I remember everyone thought I was crazy for calling the 24-70 f4L DOA.

Well, for 1500$ I consider that DOA.

1. 14-24 L f2.8 - on par with Nikon or better
2. 50L II - sharp at wide open, fast AF, no more focus shift issue

The 50L is sharp wide open and Its AF is fine.

All I really want is just a floating aspherical element to prevent the focus shift.
