There is nothing like canon primes. Fantastic.

Carl Zeiss, Nikon, Leitz, Sneider,   some Sigma, Tamron
there are fantastic primes out there and the smallest problem I have is to argue for or against the Canon because I have several tools to choose.
Happy new year

I will admit, if zeiss made AF lenses for canon, I wouldn't own any canon lenses.

But since they don't, canon is my choice for uber primes.

I would argue that the 135L is the best portrait lens under the 6K$ 200 f/2L. It's fantastic and is a truly legendary lens that continues to amaze me when I use it to its fullest capability.

Dare I say, it's equal or better than the 85L II for pure portraiture.

The only thing possible to improve on this lens is a reasonable f/1.8 aperture and IS. If this lens were made, I'd lose complete interest in a 70-200 for my bag.

2x 5D3s
Misc flash stuff.

That's pretty much it for my uses.

Keep both APS-C and FF camera's and slowly decide if its worth keeping the APS-C camera around. If not, Sell the stuff you don't want.

I eventually sold my 7D and bought another 5D3. I have little desire to shoot crop unless the 7D2 has much better IQ.

I've used the 85LII on the 5D3. It was fantastic on all the cross-type AF points and the normal AF points were sketchy.

The D600 is a better developed camera but canon just has a better lens selection.

There is nothing like canon primes. Fantastic.

I had the same choice on my lap. An aging 5Dc and either the 5D2 or 5D3?

I was never impressed enough with the 5D2 as an overall camera but the d700 felt like a complete package. The d700 had everything except video and resolution from my 5Dc and that it can't take EF lenses. :P

So I skipped the mk2 cameras entirely and went straight into a mk3. It's all the camera I could ever need and won't be outgrowing it any time soon.

I might buy a 1DXs if and only if canon truly updates the sensor tech behind the megapixels.

24-105L + 50mm is a fantastic GP combo. Also 24-105Ls used are not too expensive.

100mm F/2
50mm 1.8/1.4

Both are fantastic.

You have 3 lenses listed sir.  :) :) :)

Not quite. It was a choice of the 50mm 1.8 or 1.4 which are both fantastic.

I believe the 5D3 is the camera of the year but... Just not for 3500$ :/

Automate panoramics in CS3 for me. It just works.
