Just give me a aps-c sensor and a fast 35mm or 50mm prime. Its all I'll ever need from a mirror-less camera and possibly a EF lens adapter.

My new baby, thanks all, I cant believe this is a mint camera, not 1 scratch also,
thanks to this forum for all your help!
Support the idea to know who the people are and actually see if they know what they are talking about and kinda tried to encourage it too a while ago
but... maybe something about that armchair...
If the price of the new entry level FF is below 2K, the price of 5D3 should drop to about 3K. Actually I am very interested in the new entry level FF camera. However, not much information about it yet.
What if it rises up after new entry level FF?
And if the price of entry level FF would be around 2500$?
Im a CPS gold member and I bought my 5Dc used on craigslist ages ago. I logged my Serial number and info into CPS and it was accepted for CPS points. Does that mean used gear bought second-hand still qualifies for CPS benefits or repairs?
Canon will fix a Grey Market camera no matter what. The question is whether you have to pay full, partial, or no price. I bought a 1Ds Mark III and sent it to Canon and they cleaned the sensor for free, even though it was not under warranty anymore. They're pretty good about this stuff.
If you believe that filters protect your lens from impacts, you need to look on Youtube at the videos of people intentionally abusing lenses. What you'll find is that it takes a LOT of impact to even scratch the outer element of a lens (there is at least one where a guy is hitting it with a hammer with no apparent damage). Try doing that to the extremely thin piece of glass in your filter and you can expect it to shatter.
If you're talking about protecting it from dust and dirt, I can see that to a degree, but as others have pointed you should be able to plan and prepare for those scenarios and use them as necessary.
Under ideal shooting conditions, even a cheap filter may not affect IQ much. It's when you get into less than ideal situations, i.e where there is a potential for lens flare, where filters can really start to affect IQ. And buying a B+W filter doesn't automatically mean it won't affect IQ. If you want to use one want to minimize the effect on IQ, you should really use a multi-coated filter (look for "MRC" on B+W filters) but you'll also find that they get expensive quickly.
At the end of the day, you should really always be using a lens hood, both to protect from lens flare and to protect your lens, and if you're doing that in most scenarios a filter isn't going to help much more. However, if you're NOT using your lens hood and ARE using a filter (especially a cheap one), there's a decent chance that at times IQ will be negatively impacted.
I use all B+W MRC UV filters, ND filters, and CP filters. I've shot out in the sun routinely and have noticed no lens flare or any IQ problems.
Let see if I can fix that
Hi RLPhoto, It was a simple fix in lightroom4. I decided to keep the pix as is
Agreed! The 50L is certainly not in the class of the prime trinity.
+1...I'm waiting for version II L, but whennnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn?
+1I am looking for a 82 mm size UV, CPL, ND (Grad) filter to purchase . i have always used B+W filters and have been very happy with it. What do you all recommend..
Staying with B+W.
