Lenses / Re: 2013 - The Year for 400mm Lenses? [CR1]
« on: January 17, 2013, 12:04:05 PM »
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.

4x PCB Einsteins.

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.

The 6D is canons way to make more money with the 20D 5dc 5D2 hardware.  :P

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.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D3 vs 1DsIII
« on: January 15, 2013, 06:21:14 PM »
If you had to choose between the 5D3 and the 1DsIII, seeing as the 1DsIII second hand is close to the 5D Mark III price point, what would be the best option. The scenario involves me needing a second body for architecture and landscape work, for the sports and wildlife I am quite content with the 1DX.

The 6D is a warmed up, served hot and fresh 5D2 for the next 4 years.  :P

I am new here and have my first question  :)

Is the 5D Mark iii a considerable enough upgrade from the 5D Mark ii?

Considering purchasing a 5D Mark iii and currently I own the 5D Mark ii. So basically I have the money and plenty of great lenses so I would like to upgrade to the 5D Mark iii but I wondering if it is worth the money and is it worth upgrading. I have my opinoins but I would like to hear others on this topic. Going from a 5D Mark ii to a 5D Mark iii will I really be gaining that much? And lastly is it worth it?

Thank you everyone

I skipped the MK2 series camera entirely. 5Dc -------> 5D3.

I'd recommend skipping a generation of cameras on the same level unless you absolutely need something it offers. IE. 61-point AF is EPIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also, I wouldn't consider a 6D. Its too similar to the 5D2.
