Crap, and I was just starting to like instagram.

As a Istock contributor, IMO, Most crap cell phone photos won't print,look, or sell as well as good stock photos.

The 135L is next but I've been side tracked lately.  :P

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D III - Live view DOF not accurate below f/2.2 ?!
« on: December 17, 2012, 05:17:20 PM »
Its Discussing View-finder focusing screens and its true, the 5D3 isn't accurate faster than F/2.8. On my 5Dc, With the Eg-s Screen, I could clearly see my DOF all the way down to F/1.2, It was fantastic.

I would buy a 50L II but the FF mirrorless is also very tempting. I still wouldn't buy a first gen electronic product though.

Hi, I've got a friend in law enforcement who is asking me for a recommendation for lens/camera combo for surveillance. I naturally thought to extend the question to you all!

What would you recommend as a set-up for surveillance? My friend won't be able to spend a ton of time learning the ins and outs of it and he's not interested in photography as an art. He will need to use it time to time at night and won't be using a flash (obviously).

Your thoughts?

P.S. Budget doesn't necessarily matter. Unless you are concerned about the fact that our taxes will be footing the bill... :)

The zeiss 1700 F/4 is a perfect canidate for surveillance, If you got the arms for it.  ;D

If you have a duff lens, well its not going to get your sensors worth but less. If you have a fantastic lens, Its going to resolve your full sensors megapickel value.

Lenses / Re: Canon 50L Sharpness at f1.2 ???
« on: December 17, 2012, 03:21:35 PM »
It's sharp enough for portraits in the center for me. I love the look.

Have you run your 50L through FoCal with your 5D III bodies? I just wonder what other owners are getting from their 50L????????????????

I don't even own FoCal, or any focus calibration software. Infact, I haven't AFMA'ed any of my lenses. They all have been flawless from the factory. ( Fingers crossed .)  :o

Lenses / Re: Best landscape lenses

What is this Velvia, of which you speak so reverently?   ;)

A transparent sheet of magic coated in pixie dust... DXOMark gave it a one billion.

(Of course they wouldn't; it has four stops of DR and is super grainy in the shadows at ISO 50 with terrible color accuracy.)

I wouldn't argue with the four stops and terrible colour accuracy, I would argue with the grain in the blacks, don't forget the base is solid black, mind you I always shoot it at iso 40 anyway.

With regards longevity, stick it in the freezer, it will not deteriorate and can be used years past its date, if you can find somebody to actually develop it.  :)

Velvia was the bomb until they discontinued it. :(

Generally, bigger is better with landscape photography. The bigger piece of film/ sensor will always resolve more detail than a smaller format.

But yes, I've shot some fantastic landscapes with my 7D+10-22mm when I had them.
