Lenses / Canon 24-70 2.8L MKI to tide me over
« on: July 10, 2012, 07:38:47 PM »
I just picked up a used (I'm saying used because the guy that brought it in on consignment said new but I'm doubtful) 24-70 2.8L MKI.  This will tide me over until the MKII comes out.  I was also debating on whether to get the 16-35 II, but went the other route because I might get a UW prime once the 24-70II is in.  I have 7 days to return it, so I have to make sure it's ok.  Glass is pristine and body looks almost new.  Tried the focusing and it was fast and snappy.  Zoom seemed ok too.  Anything else you guys would suggest other than taking a bunch of shots and checking them over?

Lenses / Canon 8-15mm F4L Fisheye shortage?
« on: June 06, 2012, 06:16:50 PM »
Ok I'm just curious here.  I was watching a new 8-15 fisheye on eBay and it just went for $3996US.  This lens retails for $1500 new, and I was a bit shocked to see the final price.  Is there some sort of shortage or something?   :o ???

Lenses / EF 100 2.8L macro w 1.4 & 2x
« on: June 05, 2012, 10:56:09 PM »
Just wondering what kind of results you guys have gotten using a 1.4 & 2x extender on the 100 2.8L macro?
Thanks!

Lenses / Canon 50mm F1

Have any of you guys seen a Canon EF 50mm F1?  I just spotted one on eBay for $4950US, but I don't think it sold.  I wonder how the bokeh is on that baby?

Lenses / Macro decisions
« on: May 08, 2012, 05:19:33 PM »
You guys totally impressed me with your macro shots, especially the MP-E65 ones.  I went and looked at a 65 today and also the 100 2.8L (the 180 3.5L wasn't in).  The 100 was nice with the AF and stuff but didn't compare to the 65.  But buying the MP-E65 would mean buying a flash also, namely the MT-24EX.  I guess if a person is really into macro, going this route would pay off in the long run.  What do you guys use for a bellows/rail system?

Lenses / 5D MKIII w 70-200 2.8II using a 1.4x vs 2x extender
« on: May 07, 2012, 05:49:36 PM »
Hi, picked up a 70-200 2.8II with my 5DIII and was wondering what your thoughts were using a 1.4x vs 2x extender?  Thanks!

Lighting / 5D MKIII & 270EXII - good for fill?
« on: May 05, 2012, 11:07:23 PM »
Hi, just picked up a 270EXII for my 5DIII just to be used for fill.  I will probably get the 580EXII or the 600EX-RT(leaning towards the latter).  The 270 is nice and small, has anyone used one on a 5D?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Which lenses with the 5D mk3?
« on: April 17, 2012, 03:10:05 PM »
What do you guys think, go for the 5D mk3 kit and get the 24-105, or the body with the 70-200 2.8II and maybe the 24-70II when it comes out?  Also you can use the 1.4x on the 70-200.  I think the latter will cover most of the range.  Sometime down the road a wide too.
