Lenses / Re: What 3 lenses do you dream of and long to own?
« on: October 02, 2012, 10:21:23 AM »
I notice a lot of Wide Aperture Worship in this thread.   8)

I don't really dream of lenses that are very big and heavy.

1. I would love one of those Canon tilt-shift lenses, I have never had such a thing and the possibilities are exciting.

2. The new EF 28mm f2.8 IS is a dream standard lens for me on my 28mm sensor camera. But I will probably never get it because the practical guy inside me keeps saying "your 17-55 includes 28mm, includes f2.8, and includes IS, so what are you thinking!?!"

3. The EF 70-300mm L IS, I dream of this one A LOT because it is probably my next lens purchase!

There is no replacement for displacement.  ::)

I currently am using a Canon 30D. My primary lens is a Canon 24mm- 70mm 2.8 L. I am really torn between a 5DMKII and a 7D. I love landscape photography.Any advice would be appreciated

You can get a 5Dc and a Used 7D for the price of the MK2 with your 30D sold.

Just a thought.  ::)

Lenses / Re: Canon 200mm 2.8 l ii: what's the deal
« on: October 01, 2012, 02:51:48 PM »
Ive seen lately that this les is one of canons most undersold lenses, why.
The only reason I've heard why people haven't upgraded, is because most people with a 70-300 or 75-300 go to a 70-200 f4. But this lens is even cheaper, and it is 2.8.

Its a prime, and Primes always sell less.

Lenses / Re: Sharpest Ultra-wide Lens for Full Frame
« on: October 01, 2012, 02:47:33 PM »
I currently have the Canon 60D and will upgrade to either 5D Mk III or 6D. I currently own the Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 DX Pro and absolutely love it. However, once I make the jump to full frame I am contemplating buying one of the following UWA lens. I currently have the Canon 24-70L as well.

1) Canon 16-35 f2.8L
2) Canon 17-40 f4L
3) Canon 14 f2.8L II [not too eager as it's way too expensive :( ]

Though I hoped there was a 14-24 version from Canon. :(

Of the 3 mentioned, which one delivers greater contrast and sharpness. If there are any other lens from Canon or other brands that will delivers stellar sharpness in the center of the frame as well as in the corners then I am open to suggestions. Thanks in advance!

If you were will to spend for a 14-24L, Why no look at the 15mm Zeiss? Its stunning.

Lenses / Re: About to buy the 135L, and then saw this....
« on: October 01, 2012, 02:39:00 PM »
I'm not a big fan of DXOMark but at the end of the day I'll peruse all available review sites when making a buying decision.  So when looking at their lens reviews, I noticed that they give the Canon 85 1.8 the HIGHEST resolution score of ANY lens they've reviewed...including nikon, zeiss, sigma...etc.  I know it's a very good lens but I find this hard to believe.

They say they're reviewing the 135L in October...I'm correct in assuming the 135 will score higher, right?  OR, did they just get a fantastically sharp copy of the 85 1.8 when they did their review? 

I'm going to buy the 135L, but I'm just curious as to what others think about this, and what the explanation is for their resolution score for the 85 1.8? 

http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Lenses/Camera-Lens-Ratings/Optical-Metric-Scores

They're on crack to believe that the 85 1.8 is better than the 135L. Not even in the same league.

Lenses / Re: Portrait Lens
« on: October 01, 2012, 12:29:11 PM »
I know there are many great lens for portraits, but due to price and other lens I've decided my next purchase will be either the 24-105L f4 or a 100L f2.8 macro.

I guess the decision will mostly come down to whether I value to versatility of the zoom, or the bonus of macro.

But what I wanted to ask on this site, is will there be much difference in the quality of portrait shots, taken at the same focal length, at say f5.6 and above?

Thanks everyone.

Ben

I shoot at F/8 - F/16 in the studio all the time, but I still prefer my primes for the Corner sharpness.

all this tech talk has gotten us away from the point, that being canon sucks (sarcasm)!!!.  Come on now, we all knowthere was no such thing as a good picture before the d800 came out, I mean forget the wonderful images taken by photogs and letys just study charts and graphs...or...wait...no...I'm gonna go shoot a wedding with my mk3 and maybe my 7d might get some action too!

I Know Let's post our horrible photos out of our horrible canon Cameras!  ;D

Ah! Great shots, RL. I particularly love that last one...AWESOME WORK! :D

EDIT: Derp. The one with the sombrero is gone. :'(

Thank you. Some people get carried away with Tech specs and honestly I could do all these photos with a Canon G2 if i wanted too. ;D

The 3rd one is back, I uploaded the wrong version.  :P

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Upgrading from 500D to 5D Mark 2 or 3
« on: September 29, 2012, 12:00:23 PM »
Hi I am thinking of upgrading from 500D to 5D Mark 2 or 3. I would like to know what difference I would expect to get, as in whether it would improve my images considerably. I've been taking photos for quite a few years but my photos always seem to lack that extra punch when compared to other photographers' photos taken with the 5D.

That jump would be like going from a moped to a Porsche. They're both excellent cameras but the 5D2's AF is almost identical to your rebels AF, Which you should keep in mind.
