Lenses / Re: Canon EF 50 F1.2L And EF 35 F1.4L Sharpest Settings
« on: September 14, 2012, 03:12:58 PM »
In what  Aperture settings do the Canon EF 50 F1.2L and EF 35 F1.4L lenses produce the sharpest images?

Thanks.

50L is from 1.2-2.8. I dont know about 35L.
Sharpest @ F1.2?  Congrats if that is true for you. However i don't do much manual work at that F stop so I could be corrected possibly. I honestly don't know whats sharpest on my copy but generally an F1.2 lens is sharpest at F5.6. Now i want to do tests at F1.2 manually lol. Peace!

Anything Slower that 2.8 on the 50L is not as sharp as other 50mm's. Yes, Its at its best at F/8, but meh, What lens isn't?

Now digicame-info got two pictures of 6D
http://digicame-info.com/2012/09/eos-6d-20.html

That "6" looks so fake...

It seems like every first leaked photo is deemed fake... Like the 5D3, EOS M, 1Dx....

It could be faked but IDK, Its might not be either.

Only if the the entry price would be 1299$.  :o That would stun the world.

nah, 1799 the lowest! probably looking at 2199!  :-\

But If canon could really stretch there production facility's to to get an insane price like that, It would stun the world! No-one would buy the nikon, and canon could sell it with a kit for 1799$ and body for 1299$!

Get the Version II with IS. Much better investment.
I don't think he cares about the ROI. I think he wants to take photographs with it.

Yes, Like slower shutter speed portraits Eh?  :P

He does need a body for video also rat. He's selling his t1i and could sell the 50D = 7D body price, and still keep money for the 70-200 IS II, but your not that naive right?

2589
If you lack a telephoto lens like the 70-200. Get that first. You can have a mk3 but without the reach, Why bother?
He *has* the 70-200 2.8, just not the newest. Normally I'd second your 'glass first' adage, but in this case: TS, get the 5D3. It is a *big* step up from the 5D.

In the low light situations having a stop or more of better high iso coverage with a new body would be just as good as upgrading all of my lenses I suppose.  The 5d mark III is just so expensive. 
The standard set of f/4-zooms will currently set you back about 2750 euro The 16-35, 24-70II and 70-200II cost something like 5750 euro - the difference will pay for a 5D3. That'll give you all the low light capacity you'll need (unlike the 1 stop you gain with the 2.8's) and if you want smaller DOF, you probably should get primes anyway.

Get the Version II with IS. Much better investment or consider the 7D. Its 8 FPS are much better and keep the reach.

11 AF Points, f/2.8 Cross-type in the center

Weak.  Very weak.

No kidding! If Canon releases this, they deserve to lose customers and sales. This makes the whole entire rumor sound bogus...I don't think Canon would gimp their D600 competitor so much.

Only if the the entry price would be 1299$.  :o That would stun the world.

PowerShot Cameras / Re: Im looking into getting a new camera
« on: September 14, 2012, 11:53:40 AM »
My budget is about 1000 which I know isn't much but I wanna make sure I get the most bang for my buck. Any suggestions?

5Dc + 50mm 1.8/1.4

done.

I'm debating my upgrade path.  I usually go for better quality glass over body upgrades, but I'm not sure on this one. 

Do I upgrade my Canon 70-200 non-is 2.8 to the new IS version II of the lens or would it make more sense to keep my older 70-200 2.8 and upgrade my body from the original 5D classic to the new 5D mark III?  I'm drooling over the new auto focus system on the 5d mark III but since I shoot sports with a crop camera I'm not sure if I need it.  Maybe at 7D and the 70-200 2.8 IS II would be warranted?

I shoot motocross (sports) with my 50D as it has the 1.6 crop factor (free zoom) and a better 9 cross point autofocus vs 1 cross point on the 5d classic.  I shoot weddings and general photography/events with the 5d and I consider the 5d my main camera with the 50d being backup unless I shoot the aforementioned motocross or maybe birds. 

I love the shallower depth of field that I can achieve when using the full frame 5d vs the crop.  It's like getting more expensive lenses with lower maximum aperture when comparing to the crop body.  I will always have a full frame.  I will probably always have a crop too though for the extra reach.

I also need something for video as well.  I'm currently using the T1i for video, but it is up for sale at the time to fund this upgrade.  I do some how to videos and make some short films.  I do have a canon 1080P video camera for this as well (not as nice as the DSLR's though).

So whats the better upgrade, the 5D to 5D mark III or the 70-200 2.8 non-IS to the 70-200 2.8 IS version II or some other path?

This advise is coming from someone who made the exact same upgrade path. I skipped the MK2 series Btw.

GLASS FIRST! Bodies Second.

If you lack a telephoto lens like the 70-200. Get that first. You can have a mk3 but without the reach, Why bother?

Once you've got all your lens line-up complete, Then invest into whatever body you want. Never deprive yourself of good glass. As for sports, I'm sure you can manage with the bodies you have but the Lenses, You need them more.

I Purchased a MK3 only to replace my dying 5Dc, and For the AF. I never saw the MK2 as enough of an upgrade to justify its purchase.

No 17 cross type AF points?

Prepare for failure canon.

Disagree. When the 5DMkII disappears, this will be an appealing camera if upgrading from APS-C, save possibly for 7d owners.

I hold to my statement. Whats to stop someone from just buying the MK2 used when the new version may only have marginally better AF? For More $$$, With more than likely the same sensor tech? Hmm?

Because the way it's written "11 AF Points, f/2.8 Cross-type in the center." Its Implying that One AF point will be crosstype. If its 60D like AF with 9 Points, Its equal to the nikon. If it has 17 Point 7D-like AF, I have a reason to buy it over the nikon.

Unless the price is right, It will flop compared to nikon.
