Hi,

I would like to thank all of you all. It has been very enlightening and enjoyable communicating on this forum. I have received more than I have given. Hopefully that equation will change - me giving more...

Thanks again.

The wires over the model head are a no go in photography. Bad composition.
Wires? You are looking at the wires?

Dude! Surely you can do better!

Well, It would be better w/o the wires. Block them out with your thumb and it looks better to me. Nothing some PS can't fix. ::)

If they could make the same 135mm f2 with IS, I would be more than satisfied, I'm afraid the extra 1/3 of stop of a 1.8 version would only add weight, bulk, a larger filter size and 3 times the price. The new 135mm f2 IS when it comes will likely sell for 1899$ anyway.

Zeiss already make's a 135 F/1.8. It should be no big deal for canon.  :P

I guess it's no big deal, after all Nikon even had a 300mm f2 in the past; I just wonder if the extra 1/3 stop would justify all the negatives (weight, bulk, filter size, price).

If canon made a 300mm F/2L IS USM, that would also be in this list of wanted rumored lenses.  ;D

That Zeiss 135mm F1.8 is just stunning.

"There is not a single lens that Nikon makes that tempts me to switch--Canon has a rival to match or beat everything they offer.  Am I wrong?"

Well.... 14-24....

Zeiss 15mm 2.8  :o

If zeiss made AF lenses for canon, I'd never buy canon lenses.  ;D

I made a statement, You said I'm wrong. The burden of proof is on you.

I've provided many, many samples of the 5Dc's superb IQ. You have provided none.


You haven't provided a single sample for comparison. Nor could you provide one on request here, even though you claim to have handled both.

Your statement claims the opposite of published, professional test data and sample images (DPReview; Imaging Resource). Therefore the burden of proof is entirely on you.

But go ahead and rant in 36 point again like a spoiled child throwing a temper tantrum.


Your plainly mistaken Mr. Taylor. I was a Avid 5Dc + 7D combo user.

Since I don't shoot test charts and my experience is real world, If you don't get what not only myself have been saying but other 5Dc users have also agreed on. There is no helping you.

Please, I would love to see some of your ISO 3200 Shots from the 7D, Because I already know what they're going to look like.

So i´m in the market for a full frame camera right now. I only have FF lenses for EF mount, so switching would at least mean the loss of a lens or two (money reasons).
Right now canon is far behind others. Or lets just say it: Nikon.

The d800 is 2300€ the 5d3 is 2900€ and the Nikon just is the superior camera. If you downsize the image even high iso is awesome, af is good etc. It´s just a really good body and much more in the price range of a 6d.

I want to stick with canon but if they are going to make their first competitive body in like 5 years i really have to consider switching....

Canon's sensor tech is behind sony/nikon but its not as bad as some make it to be.

What really set's canon apart is the EF lens selection. Its simply the best, excluding the ultra-wide department. The d800 is a great camera but, overall the 5D3 is a better package.

I scored a MK3 for 2499$! What does that say about canon camera prices dropping?

Be patient and you won't have early adopters regret.

Lenses / Re: Trying to justify purchasing a 200mm f2.0
« on: November 29, 2012, 12:14:47 AM »
If you do a lot of portraits the 200 f/2 is unbeatable and you get roughly a 300mm 2.8 and a 400mm f/4 with TC's.

I've been seriously considering the 200 f/2 for a long while because of the magic in my 135L. The 200L would just be even more awesome.

"As for hybrid IS, Its really only useful at 1:1 or near 1:1 focusing distances. Perfect for macro lenses"

Thank you for educating me on that feature.

That is a very poorly worded comment.

What it should have said is,

"Hybrid is every bit as useful as conventional IS in a myriad of circumstances, possibly even slightly better,  but additionally it is useful at 1:1 or near 1:1 focusing distances, where conventional IS loses about half to 3/4 of its effectiveness".

That's better.


I love quotes taken out of context.  ::)
