Lenses / Re: B+W XS Pro MRC UV (010P) NANO Slim filter for my 85L or 135L

I Use That exact slim filter on my 135L. Its great but I tend to stack filters so that's why I bought the slim.

A Good Price might sway me, BigValueInc happened to be one who did.  8)

Seriously though, A 24-70 + 70-200 + 50L + 2x5D3's + 2x580 EX II's is a crap load of weight for weddings or events. The 70-200 is 4 pounds and the 135L is a third of that weight.

I prefer just three small, fast primes with two bodies and the occasional flash.

That is actually a pretty lite load considering the rest of the gear waiting in cases nearby. And let's not forget a few Elinchrom Rangers set-up for formal shots.

I wonder about the OP though. A 5D2 and no lens... hummm! He's never responded to the offer to come out and play with some glass, most photographers I know jump at the chance test drive without a cash layout.

I don't have to carry mono-light's on my back, so a nice roller case for them is fine.  ::)

Lenses / Re: Vignetting on 24-70 F/2.8L II USM
« on: December 13, 2012, 04:36:01 PM »
Wide open, f/2.8 at 24mm I expect a lens this expensive to have abolutly no vignetting.

The 600mm f/4L IS II costs $13,000 and has about 1.5 stops of vignetting wide open.   ::)

The 24L II is $1500 and it has 3 stops of vignette.  O_o

This is typical of a board with "Rumors" in its name.
We start by talking about the 24-70mm f/2.8 L II shot at 24mm, jump to the 600mm II and then it somehow turns in to the 24mm f/1.4L II  ???

The New Rumored 24-70 2.8L III will have Zero vignette at all focal lengths and perfect IQ. It will weight in at a reasonable 500 Grams and a MSRP of 1299$ including canons all new 7th generation Image Stablizer providing 8-stops of compensation.

This could be a "rumor" right?

Might be
Can I pre-order now?

Sure, If you've got a spare billion dollars for the R&D.  ;D

Lenses / Re: Which lenses will match a 40+MP camera?

If it can out-resolve the 7D, It should Out-resolve the 46Mp camera.

The 135L is one of those lenses.
This is not a fair test.  All lenses have better resolution in the center area of the image.  APS-C (7D etc) usese this area only. In FF the full field is being used, and the resolution for off enter area will drop. Some might even drop drastically.
Only at thec enter area. Look at the review of lenses on DPreview, especially at the outer part of the FF. Out-resove everything you have does not mean that it will out-resolve the 40MP sensor. What you go may out resolve a 22MP FF but there is no guarantee tah tiyt will out resolve the 40MP FF.

It Should outresolve the hypothetical 46mp sensor.

The 135L has outresolved pretty much any camera I've used, so it would be a great candidate for this non-existent sensor.

Word: Should

(auxiliary) Will likely (become or do something); indicates that the subject of the sentence is likely to execute the sentence predicate.

Your 135L Should out-resolve that 1Ds MarkVI with its amazing 46mp sensor.

That won't be much of an upgrade over the 5D2, Save alittle more for a 5D3.

I'd wait for the 7DII, and continue to use your current equipment. The 7D is a great cam for your uses but its already a long-toothed tiger.

Patience is a virtue, Impatience is an expensive commodity and If you wait a bit longer, You can get the 7DII or the 7D for less $$$. Look at the MK3 prices, They're ridiculous now!

The 5D3 is the camera of the year, but just not for $3500.  ::)

Not Remotely interested in a repackaged 5D2, which was a repackaged 20D with a FF sensor.
