The part about loving it because good focus is rare and hard to achieve is a masterpiece in spin doctoring. :)
GUILTY as charged ;D

Yeah, sure, but when it hits, it's so worth it.

Love mine - very happy with it.

Thanks you for sharing, not a bad effort considering 50 1.8.

I'd would try converting some into BnW for example the 4th image of the guy with in the hat.


Lenses / Re: Canon 24-70 f/4L IS disappointing?
« on: July 26, 2014, 05:00:53 AM »

In fact, I've even been considering selling my 70-200 2.8L II and picking up a 135L (and change), although I haven't been able to bring myself to do it yet.  If they bring out a 135L IS, that might well convince me ... although I'm still tempted by the 135L as is.   (And no, I don't want to just add a 135L to my kit. I really don't need any more lenses!)


+1, that's almost insane - the 70-200 2.8L II is a bag full of f/2.8 primes all rolled into one. It is the ultimate zoom. So unless you're bothered by its size and weight, I recommend getting the 135L beside the 70-200L (I know how GAS works). Whatever you do don't first sell the 70-200 and then get the 135L. Keep them both for a while (a year or so) to see how it works out.

Agreed - well put.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D MK I Still Relevant?

I shoot mostly landscapes including sunsets and sunrises. I do some 800-1600 ISO work but not a ton. My biggest thing is that you can buy a 6d from canon refurbished for about $1,400. The only reason that is a consideration is due to having a newer sensor more so than features. I could care less for GPS or wifi.

5dc was great for its time and can still take amazing images.

However, given the choice, I'd get the 6D as its a more advanced camera all round and will last you years and years.

No surprise there  8)

I suggest 85L to the OP too.

I Love my 85L - admittedly on one of my FF bodies :)

In our back yard.

Great picture Menace!  I like how the bird flying on the right appears to be pushing the other one out of the way.

Thanks.  I was hiding under a makeshift hide using some bed linen.
