The Canon 5D mark III is the best mid-sized DSLR I've ever shot. It has no weakness's and simply perform's its job better than any camera I've shot up to now including the d700, 7D, 1Ds2, 5Dc, and many more.

I like the 50L over the 35L. I prefer the 50mm look vs the more distortion in the 35mm.

If I want wide and fast, Ill get the Widest and Fastest. The 24L II.

Raw -----> PSD ------> TIFF/JEPG

The canon EOS 1D Mark IV would be the ideal backup camera.

EOS Bodies / Re: Official DXOMark Sensor Score for the EOS-1D X

If you had a camera that had the DR of the human eye but only shot one frame every 10 minutes at ISO 100 only and was only manual focus...
I've read in a book of a Russian author (not sure if it was translated to English) that human eye has 5-6 stops of DR. And the reason we can see much bigger range of lightness levels is the ability of our eyes to adapt to the rapidly changing environment.

The book's author was a researcher in photography so this statement might be true. Did anyone hear anything like that?

Yes I have that somewhere.

I always was told our eye has a massive DR but not because of the optics but how our brain can dynamically adjust areas of a scene to make blacks brighter and highlights darker. Kinda like dynamic area ISO.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Alaska: 5D2 or 1D4
« on: November 01, 2012, 09:36:44 AM »
Yes. I would recommend a 1D series camera for the harsh arctic environment of Alaska. Plus it's battery will last longer in the cold.

Reviews / Re: My Mini-Review of the 85mm 1.2L II.
« on: October 31, 2012, 08:55:07 AM »
I dont mean any offense or anything but pretty much every topic that has to do with these lenses you keep posting this review you wrote. I think it was a good review but if i could encourage you to do the other parts i believe it mentions on there that would be awesome. I just keep clicking on it because i assume there is no way you would keep posting this without having finished the review. So i guess in one sense if you want people to go to your blog and check out your one post you are succeeding. Just realize that i count for like ten of the visits to your site. Even now you started a topic for it all in its own! I wont be tricked again! Let us know when you get some new stuff up. the first part was good!

I usually post it for OP of a thread asking a question of relevance to fast primes. If I may have mislead you, I apologize.

In These modern times, it can be difficult to write up three complete reviews, so I broke it up into three intertwined reviews of each lens. I recieved some good tips for my next write up as this on one the 85L was a trial run.

My next review is the 50L because of the requests of a field review of that lens.

Stay tuned to the review section. I will post there with the link.

Edit: I Did some edits to the original post on tumblr. I've added some of the Info gained here about some flaws in the 85L II design and Tweaked my grammar.

I appreciated the Input, and motivates me to do better on my next real-world review.

Lenses / Re: focusing accuracy/repeatability on 50mm
« on: October 30, 2012, 10:04:37 PM »
I'm not all that thrilled with the focusing accuracy or  of the 50mm f/1.4 USM.
I tend to shoot that lens at about f/2.0 most of time.  Closed just enough to control the creaminess at f/1.4.
And its a tough thing to get it to focus where I like. 

So the question is - does the 50mm f/1.2L do any better with focus?  I'd probably be shooting it wide open, or just a hair closed as well.

Thanks for the input!~

When shooting the 50L at f1.2 on the 5D3, it's pretty sweet. I still take plenty of shots and pick out the best because more than likely its your breathing that will move it out of focus at 1.2.

Just take more photos.
