Personally I'd keep it unless i was really in need of same cash - you can always put a roll in it from time to time and just enjoy the experience :)

I've already placed a request for two of theses babies with Santa for this Xmas!

WTF is right.  That's pretty funny, and I hope he's not the lifeguard!

Baywatch Bondi style  ;D

Did you try phoning Canon directly?

What will you be shooting? Studio? Sports? General purpose walk around? Is weight or fast AF or high ISO performance required?

Lenses / Re: Help. 50mm 1.2 ?
« on: November 04, 2013, 02:07:49 AM »
Hi I'm stuck deciding if I should upgrade my 50mm 1.8 to a 1.2 or go with the 1.4, I've done some research and read that the Sigma 50mm 1.4 is a better lens than the Canon 1.4. If you have had any of these lens any advice would be great to help me make my decision.

As others have said, if you'll be shooting from 1.2 to 2.0, get the 50 1.2 otherwise get the 1.4 and save a lot of money.

Personally, i love my 50 1.2  :D

Thousand Thanks, Sir, Dear Mr. bchernicoff.
From your Test at F= 1.4 both lens, My decision is to keep My Dear Sigma 50 mm F/ 1.4 and Not spend my money $ 1619 US Dollars for That Beautiful Canon 50 mm F/ 1.2 L.
No, Sir, Not worth 4 time of the cost of my old Sigma, just one stop faster and better Contrast/ Better Colors that my Old yes could not see the difference.
Thanks again, Sir for your great Job.
You're welcome! Also 1.2 is only a half stop faster than 1.4.
I think the 50 1.2 is a great lens, but I don't think it's as good as Canon's other L primes, and ultimately not worth the money unless you need the things I mentioned previously.  If you shoot at 50mm a lot and need great performance from f/1.2-2, I would buy it, but if it will see limited use, you're better off putting that money into another lens and getting the 1.4.  Another thing to throw out is the that the 24-70 f/2.8 II is as sharp as both primes from f/2.8 on and is only a bit worse on CA and vignetting.

Thousand Thanks, Sir, Dear Mr. mackguyver.
Now, at this time ( past 2 months), I just fell in love with my  Canon TS-E 24 mm. F/ 3.5 L MK II , For Local Scenery shots. I not use  my 50 mm Sigma past 5 months, Just 1 time ti test the Shallow DOF at F/ 1.4 only.
Yes, Sir, Thanks for your Great Comments--Yes, My Next Lens = Canon 24 -70 MM F/ 2.8 L II, And I will  Give my Trustfully Old 24-70 L 2.8 to my son.
Thanks again , Sir.

You'll love the 24-70 II and your son will be extremely happy with the original version. Happy family :)

Lenses / Re: Canon Extender 1.4ii or iii?
« on: October 31, 2013, 05:21:03 AM »
AF is faster in III than II whilst IQ is fairly similar in my experience.

Is there any way you can try both first hand before pulling the trigger?

If you are addicted to bokeh - check out the "Brenizer Method".

Lenses / Re: 135 F1.8L IS
« on: October 28, 2013, 03:01:36 AM »

Same size
Same weight
f2 or f1.8
Sharp wide open to f5.6


would certainly expect an increase in size and weight if getting F1.8 and IS, but hopefully not too much.

Weight and size would not be a prob for me - very keen to see it happen though.
