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.

I once heard that battering the hoods up and deep frying them in coca-cola would produce some delicious hood rings for serving guest on routine flying boat's.

The 5Dc is still better than any APS-c camera canon currently makes in the IQ department. If you can over look its limitations, you'll be rewarded with files that are very similar to film. 

I was able to use all ISO speeds with good results, even ISO 3200 with some NR.

These are some examples


I think this is a fallacy, I bought an old 5d before jumping right to the 5d3 and it(5d) and my 7d were pretty much even in terms of image quality


It is

Disagree. I've already had this discussion here.

I could never get as clean ISO-3200 Shots w/o serious NR out of my 7D.

Un-edited full-res JPG from 5Dc @ 3200 W/ No NR below. I could only dream of this on my 7D.

I have to admit, I'm glad to see the old 35mm f/2 to go away. It was a terrible lens.

If the 24-70L f/4 isn't cheaper than the 24-105L, I don't see it catching on.

135mm f/1.8L IS USM.

Just use your current setup until you can afford the gear you really want. Getting sub-par gear will only hurt the bottom line of what you could achieve.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 1Dx ISO100 high DR shadows SNR improvement
« on: November 04, 2012, 06:45:15 PM »
The d800 currently has the best 35mm sensor ever made. We all know this.

The 1Dx currently the best professional camera ever made. We all know this.

Two tools for two uses.

Canon could use some newer tech on the sensor base, and Nikon currently could use a newer AF system from the 3500 series. If you nail your exposures on either camera, only good photos will result.

Canon should simply make a better 50mm 1.4. Until then, 50L will be my choice.

Really good examples of this lens in your review. My concern about the 50L is this: At 2.5x the price of the 50mm f/1.4, shouldn't it give at least 2.5x the performance improvement? It doesn't, especially at wider apertures. I would at least expect it to be sharper than the f/1.4 wide open, but clearly it is not. Where the 50L really shines, though, is the quality of the bokeh shooting that wide. The 50mm f/1.4 can't even touch it. In that respect, a photographer is better off getting the 50L if they depend on that kind of background blur.

Having said all of that, I would in no way turn one down if somebody wanted to give me one.  :)

The 50L is sharper than the 50mm 1.4 in the center at wide apertures.

I just finished this review of the 50L. You may want to read its pros & cons.

I'm in the same boat. I recently purchased the 24-105L and going to pair with with my 50L. It will be my GP kit.
