Lenses / Re: What about those lens weights?

Compare the 400mm f/2.8 IS 1 vs 400mm f/2.8 IS II
 


There is a huge difference in weight between the 400 I & II - IQ of the I was great whilst the II is simply stunning and its much lighter to carry around :)

Hi Surapon & Menace - I was just commenting on the thread - jasonsim is the OP asking the question.  I couldn't be happier with the two bodies and feel extremely fortunate to have both  :) 8)

Dear Friend mackguyver.
If I were you, I will keep both of them 1Dx and 5D MK III, and Wait  until this Christmas 2014, Canon will put 3Da ( Not 3D = Three Dimensions, But 3Da , a = able to beat the sh_t   of Nikon) in the market  = 36 MP or 42 MP (?), Plus GPS. on demand too----You and Me can get this Baby.
Ha, Ha, Ha.
Have a great day, Sir.
Surapon

Keep them both :)

I like my Canon lenses ( bit of an understatement) but in 35 mm range, I'd definitely consider the Sigma Art!

To the OP, if you want the 35 now then do get it - whenever mark II is released you can evaluate selling the original and upgrading to the new one.

A very quick photo of one of my twin daughters, if either of them sit still for more than 30 seconds I'm lucky...

Rather appropriate tee shirt  :)

Considering poor lighting during fashion shows, I think it's  a very good effort.

you know you are too deep into photography when you see a picture of a beautiful woman and your primary thoughts are how did they lighte the subject

I had a similar conversation with my wife many years ago. I could see was the beautiful lighting, shadows, lovely form and composition whilst all she could see was a naked woman!

Like you... I really like not being the smartest person in the room... though at times it feels as though I'm looking for my bachelor's while the people talking are working on the 3rd phd... which is fine... but maybe I get lost in the translation to undergrad speak. 



Remember just cos someone has a lot to say on a specific matter (photography in this instance) it doesn't make them an expert in reality.  I tend to stay away from any 'know it all' photographers cos they are unable to be objective.

You better stay away from me, then because I know everything, and I've decided to change my username to "Omniscient".

Then again, I might be kidding ;D

I try to pass along my knowledge, but try not to shove anything down people's throats and hopefully I'm successful, but some people just like to talk $h!t to make themselves feel important.

Also, I saw this on FStoppers today and thought of this thread:
Things You MUST Know About Groups on Facebook


Thanks for the link oh Omniscient One - some good tips in there :)

Oh... and... she's HOT.  I'm a pretty lucky husband :)

Some pictures would be nice  ;) and make the thread more interesting than that video of an incredibly boring a*** at the beginning who's special talents appear to be the bleeding obvious.

She had some pictures taken for me and here's one that's been downsized, posted online (compressed), saved from online to my phone and emailed to me (so probably compressed again) so it ain't of the greatest quality but hey... it's better than the dude in the video... right?  :)



You sure are one lucky husband sir - hat off to you both :)

It is funny reading this and other like threads and then remembering all the times photographers say "it's not the equipment, it's the photographer".   ;D ;D ;D

Doesn't work for lens collectors :)

Let's reframe the discussion.

It's not the telescope, it's the astronomer.

Every photographer knows - it's the lighting :).

That's true but the night sky is sooooo dark! ;)

"Anyone think that Canon will trickle down the auto exposure compensation in manual mode to the 5D III?  The last firmware update for it was over 6 months ago"

Hard to say - maybe Canon will introduce it in the replacement for the 5D III - which could well be 18-24 months away!
