i'd like to see a 50 mm 1.2 mark II ( 82mm) or a new 50 mm 1.0
I was hoping for a new 50mm >1.4<... Why the hack a new 1.8 again?
Ditto. ... If they come out with a better f/1.4 i'll be all over it.
A few other pieces of information have said Canon will be updating a lot of current lenses in the next 24 months...
Sorry, couldn't resist. Bestbuy lists the new 24mm lens twice as a 2.4mm. Now THATS wide angle.
I don't know if anyone's mentioned it, but I think personality/ people skills and confidence are just as or more important than skills/ talent and equipment. If you're very likeable and you really believe you are a good photographer then you will be successful. Unfortunately I think this is something that is difficult to learn if you don't have that kind of personality.
I read a few months ago various comments about a new 50/1.4 II : do you have any News about it ?
On the Canon CPS site, on the equipment loans page, two of the lenses listed are the "EF 24mm f/2.8 USM" and the "EF 35mm f/2.0 USM." It's near the bottom of the page. http://www.cps.usa.canon.com/loans/loans.shtml
This lens is not listed on the eligible products page. But the 35 f2 and 24 2.8 are too low-end to be considered "professional" lenses, right? The current 35mm f2 is not a CPS eligible product, but the 24 2.8 is. Hmm. It wasn't part of the old program, I remember looking.
Probably a typo, but it's strange that they mistyped those two lenses, AND included them in a higher-end lens list (evaluation loan list), AND put them near the bottom away from lenses of their focal length.
Without knowing what you plan to shoot with it, it's hard to make a recommendation...
It's mostly marketing. Even movies get different titles in different countries!
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. But for us ignorant Americans, for whom philosophy is a difficult concept, they changed it to Sorcerer. Or my personal favorite, the movie, The Madness of King George - about the dementia of the George III, the King of England at the time of the US Revolutionary War. It was originally titled The Madness of King George III, but test audiences revealed that wouldn't fly, because no one would go to see the third entry in a trilogy without having seen (or even heard of) The Madness of King George I and II. Is history no longer a secondary school requirement?
Sometimes, it is ... even "societal" or "superstitious" reasons
Or linguistic. The classic example is the Chevy Nova, which failed dismally as a model name in Latin America since "No va" means "doesn't go."
part of it is definitely linguistic. in asian languages (at least Chinese and Japanese), saying "hundred" or "thousand" or even "ten thousand" is a single monosyllabic word. and culturally, there's a habit descended form our Asian storytelling traditions of referring to awesome things by calling it "hundred" or "thousand" whatevers. a common breakfast dish in northern china is known as "thousand-year egg". they love "14000 Leagues Under the Sea" as a dramatic title. people used to proclaim "may the emperor live 10000 years". so it's just a cultural fetish for huge numbers.
