It's a typo!

Although I'd love it if Canon was to announce a 50 1.2 L II :)

From a RAW. Not real crazy with the skin tones from RAW. JPG's were solid.

Nice pair of.....Sunglasses ???

Ummmm, I think the skin tones are just fine   ::)

What sunglasses?   ;)

Not my favorite technique as I don't have the tools (proper focus rails), software (I use PS, Helicon and others made me crazy), or patience, but here's one of my more successful attempts that was necessary - it's a Maypop flower - really odd to me, but apparently an extremely common flower/weed 180mm macro @f/8, 1/800s, ISO 800:



This is stunning mackguyver :)

Lenses / Re: 50mm 1.2L not focusing, ring feels stuck??

Took it to repair shop today, apparently they are very delicate and even a really minor bump will cause the heavy elements to come off the plastic rails they are aligned with. So not built like a take at all!! would be that the flimsy feeling 1.4 is much more tougher inside, but certainly doesn't feel that way.
Bad news it it may need a whole new barrel assembly as its quicker/easier for them to do that but prob more costly in the end.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Cps gave me a 1dx and falling in love

+1, I've tried several body/body combos like the 5DII and 7D, but none of them come close to my 1D X/5DIII pair.  They are a perfect match 8)

wouldn't a 1Dx/1Dx be the perfect match? :)
I like being able to "remove" the grip from my 1D X every now and then, so the 5DIII works better at that :-), and I LOVE the silent shutter.  In all other ways, the 1D X wins hands down.

+1

Fantastic to have both at the same time :)

50L is a pretty solid lens so a short drop on carpet shouldn't be a major issue - a service should fix it.

Someone was seriously done waiting for the children's parade. Lol, it's kind of describing to how we all feel after waiting in line for an ice cream and coffee, or to take a ride at the amusement parks. We had some fun also though.




Well captured Viggo :)

I just sold my 16-35 II + 50L, I have almost $3000 cash in hand - more L or 1DX ::)  ::)

Nice problem to have.

I love my 1Dx and 5DIII combo esp using both simultaneously  ;D
