Disagree. I've already had this discussion here.

http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=9773.msg176369#msg176369

I could never get as clean ISO-3200 Shots w/o serious NR out of my 7D.

Then you weren't doing proper comparisons. Review controlled tests and noise measurements. The 5Dc is not better than the 7D at 3200.

I could only dream of this on my 7D.

I see it all the time.

Sorry if I don't shoot shoot test chart but in real world use the 5Dc is better than the 7D.

The d800 screen looks like vomit. Very similar to what It used to look like on my 5Dc. Its terrible.

strong words, there are no problem  to adjust the AWB a little bit and and then the motive looks fine at the LCD in d800.
The yellow /green tint is gone (in the LCD)
The  small AWB correction does not affect the jpg image out from the camera

This is AWB from 5dmk2, d800 and  raw file adjusted
None of the AWB in 5dmk2 or d800 does a proper job in 2800K

These level cameras are very expensive. I expect them to get out of my way and get me my photos I want.

For 3000$ in 2012, I expect a proper LCD.

When the 100-400L IS II is released eventually...  It will be very expensive.

Hi All,

I recently upgraded to a 5D MK III which I will be using for more portrait and engagement sessions work.  I deliberated between the 35L vs the 50L and decided to go with the 50L based on opinions i read here and the IQ and AF when paired with the 5D MK III.

Now I am in need of your expertise and experience on which lens to get next.  As mentioned I am just getting into "paid" portrait shoots (fitness model shoots/headshots and some family and baby shoots) and just booked my first 2 engagement shoots for Jan and Feb and wondering which will be best to use.  I also have the opportunity to shoot 2 weddings in summer 2013 as well which will be my first experience shooting weddings.  1 as a second shooter and 1 as primary.  Im giving the relevant information in order to determine which lens will be good to get in terms of IQ, versatility, etc.  At this point in time i cant afford both having just invested in the 5D MK III and the 50L.  My initial budget getting into this semi pro photography was $5000 and will unfortunately have to exceed it.

So is the 135L better for my current/future needs or will the 70-200mm IS MK II a better choice since it will give me the FL versatility that i may need for future shoots?  Im looking for realworld experience of owners of these lens as I was initially leaning to the 135L and started to think in terms of versatility and started to doubt my decisions. 

Your opinions will be greatly appreciated!  thanks in advance!

Having the same decision on my lap, I went with the 135L.

I prefer the workflow of primes and the look it gives me. The 70-200L II is a great lens, but I would also have to take a 24-70L and a 50L. Its more weight than just taking the 24L, 50L, 135L on two bodies.

The 135L was much cheaper at the time I bought it. I saved that 1000$ for another body for me to shoot with.

The downfalls of this prime setup are the possibility of missed shots and more cropping in post. It will happen.

Every wedding photographer I know has a 70-200mm 2.8L II, so much of the work looks alike. I like to be active in getting my shots and because the 135L w/o a hood with being black, Is very incognito.

No IS can be a problem sometimes.

I love this lens.  It's small, fast, focuses much faster than the 1.2 and it is a great value.  What's not to love?

I prefer the 100mm F/2.

I am thinking about both.... why the 100/2 over the 85/1.8 ?

Does anyone have comparison shots?

More Compression, smaller noses.

Also helpful... since I felt larger noses in the 85Lii...

Now that we are in the 100mm territory and F2... How much do I gain when I have a 70-200 mk.ii f2.8 , I wonder...

Less weight, Less bulk and Less stares.

The 24-70 F/4L is more DOA than previously imagined.

1. When do you think the 1st FF mirrorless will arrive - for $3000 or less of course?

2. Which company will bring to the market first? Sony, Nikon, Samsung, Fujitsu etc….I will not bet on Canon

Lens Rentals will have M9's for 3000$. So, very soon.  ;D

The 50L is an amazing portrait lens. I'd love it even more if it was free.  ;D

Perhaps this will be relevant.

The 5D3 does everything well, no faults but the blinking AF fix.

The d800 will do studio and landscapes a bit better at the cost of speed and AF performance.

Pick you poision. I prefer the canon lens lineup because I use more tele than wide.

It's a little different for each photo, but in general (in Lightroom) for the photo of the little girl:



Don't be afraid to be extra generous with your sliders, especially in tone curve. Faded color does wonders for portraits, just don't go overboard.

Also, while being generous in tone curve, be frugal with split toning. A little bit goes a long way.

JPGs?
