I am still getting tired though, of the "it doesn't matter what camera you have" crap.  Yes it does.  If it didn't you wouldn't see arguments about the lack of features on the 6D, you wouldn't see the D800 threads, and you certainly wouldn't be buying a 1DX.  Why don't we all go buy 20D's, a nifty fifty, have dinner together with candlelight and wine, and then go for an evening walk holding hands?  Afterall, we have all we need!!

But, Its true. Your camera doesn't matter.  ;D

I GET MY EXPOSURE RIGHT!

bollocks! ;D

you might be one of the lucky ones with a 7D that doesn't show as much FPN as others.
Wanna trade?  ;)

Malarky!  ::)

My 7D has the same sensor that DXO claims as garbage. It's no-where near as bad as others make it out to be, even though its getting older now.   8)

your post is not even worth it to respond to, and Ansel Adams put a lot of work  in the copying as it is mention earlier

Ansel Adams wouldn't have missed his exposure by 10 stop's.  ::)

1. He would have if he was trying to show a quick, simple demonstration of the difference between two film stocks.
2. How many times does it have to be said that it's not even close to being all about fixing shots where something went wrong???

1. But, Not If he was planning to photograph anything worthwhile. He'd get his exposure right.

2. You yourself said it.

Honestly, I didn't see anything there on that search that couldn't be done on a canon d30.
Honestley the pictures you have seen do not need a lot of DR when the purpose is press but Dynamic range may be needed for annual reports, glossy magazines, etc and you have  not a clue what the benfits of large DR and exposure latitude are -do you and I have now been showing that  a number of times
 

I print often on UV coated papers, Kodak papers, Fuji papers, canvas, etc. so I do know how to print on the mediums I need.

You still haven't shown me any of your work that the canon camera limit's you in.

While it's interesting to discuss the nikon vs canon argument, it becomes dis-tasteful to discuss with someonw like yourself.

Which claims to be a pro for over 20 years yet, has no body of work behind it.

Which of portfolio consists mostly of test charts and 100% crops of noise samples.

Which has no logic or reasoning behind they're arguments and who bash honest forum users from Dpreview to canonrumors with information we already know.

You are the pinnacle of what is declared as a measurabator in the camera world.

Congrats, you've earned it.

Once again, I'll post my 7D example of a properly exposed & processed file. On your file below mine, You should be able to pull the same recovery as my image.

Software & Accessories / Re: Canon Protective Filter Question
« on: October 16, 2012, 05:27:55 PM »
I just purchased the EF-S 10-22 and EF-S 17-55 lenses and I'm looking to get some protective filters for them. I've been reading quite a bit regarding lens filters as, at least for my budget, I have invested quite a bit of money in my new lenses.  The recommendations always come back to pretty much B+W and Hoya.  I have found very little in regards to the protective filters made by canon (or OEM'd - canon product support said they made them, but not sure if they consider OEMing "making" them), or rather, any filter made by Canon.   Are there any online reviews I can see, or has someone done a comparison between canon and other brands?   I like to research before I buy and I figure that a canon product would work best on a a canon product, but it concerns me that most people are purchasing other brands.  What can I say, I over analyze but I'd rather buy right and buy once and not have shoppers remorse.   Any guidance or information on Canon filtes is appreciated.

I Use B&W MRC UV filter on all my L Primes. They're awesome. No IQ loss what so ever.

I used a Hoya once and I didn't like the IQ hit I took from it.

read earlier answer, you must get your exposure" more right because of inferior DR and exposure latitude in Canon"
try to understand the difference
and if you expose them "right" (same parameters) you have 14 stops DR in Nikon d800 and about 11,5 stops in Canon , including pattern noise/banding

PS some people was accusing me to use bold letters a week ago  . luck above, what was that?

Do you have any real photos taken by yourself with your nikon cameras showing the vast superiority over canon cameras when properly exposed and processed?

Please show me some of your work which would be limited if you shot canon exclusively. Only then may you gain any of my respect lost for you and possibly give your words some weight to others here as well. (This doesn't include test charts and color test's)

google at my name ,and a specialty that I am  special proud of is my medical images .

Funny, All I found was more test charts. Any real photos Michael?

Please link us as I'm sure we're all very interested.  ;D

Google again, there are many of them

Test charts, Picassa and Dpreview <---- Which BTW your trolling as well.

Thats an interesting photo, but I believe the canon system would provide an Identical result.  ;D

who has sad otherwise? and be stringent with what we are discussing

I don't think I could have said it better myself. I know this is a GEAR site, but it always pays to keep things in perspective. Well said, KW.


Ken, You've earned some of my respect back. ;D

Reviews / Re: My Mini-Review of the 85mm 1.2L II.
« on: October 16, 2012, 04:27:14 PM »
Its not a sealed lens, but It's built to withstand the bumps and knocks of professional use.

I understand that it's not sealed, but I found it to be alarmingly not-sealed. Fine for indoor use.

I just feel like a review should mention that it's a lens you need to be careful with.

I found the build quality of the Sigma 85mm 1.4 to be much better in this regard. With a 77mm filter on the front the focusing barrel is enclosed like with the Canon 50 1.2L.
AF is much faster on the Sigma as well, though that's not related to build quality.

I wouldn't take the lens into a rainstorm but the 85L is built to last.

Yes, its AF is pitiful but its accurate. It has alot of glass to move around.

I still prefer my 135L.

You mention excellent build quality...can you post a picture or comment on the gap between the focusing barrel and the outer lens body? I'm taking about the barrel that houses the front element and moves in and out to focus. On the copy of this lens that I owned, I found the gap to very large and I quickly got dust inside the lens. It settled on the inside of the rear element, where it is actually a problem. Fortunately, the rear element is easily cleaned by taking the lens mount loose (which houses the rear element) and puffing some air on it.

I cleaned mine, verified it still functioned perfectly and then sold it.

Its not a sealed lens, but It's built to withstand the bumps and knocks of professional use.

NOPE but a Pentax guy shows it is possible to do it with a Sony sensor and get a fair results by doing that

You missed the point, don't miss your exposure.

I already demonstrated from a measly 7D+10-22mm combo when properly exposed and processed, the photo is great and printable at full-res 300 DPI.

I could do the same on a 3 MP D30, I could do it on a 4X5 view camera, I could do it on my Yashica MAt-124G. Thats because

I GET MY EXPOSURE RIGHT!
