Lenses / Re: What to do??? 24-70 2.8L version 1
« on: May 07, 2012, 10:16:09 PM »
I have the 24-70L and I love it, its a great lens and super sharp (I have heard rumors about soft units, but mine its awesome), I said go for it and with the extra cash get the 135L  ;) another suuuper sharp lens

It all depends on your shooting style.  I refuse to shoot with zoom lenses, I think they make you lazy and love the feel and look of prime lenses, especially wide open.  But it fits my style.  Quality wise there really isn't much difference once you get into the F/4.0+ range but there isn't a single zoom that will look as nice as my 35 or 50 @ 1.4 or my 135 @ 2.0.

YMMV though :)

Im with you on that... I really love my 50 1.4 and 135 2.0 wide open, the bokeh, the light gathering capacity... I think that some shoots with the 24-70L could be better with faster primes... thats my doubt

Lenses / Canon 24-70L vs primes (24L, 35L etc)
« on: May 04, 2012, 07:05:15 PM »
I everyone!!

I currently own a 7D, 24-70L, 50 1.4 and 135L, I really like mi 24-70L, its super sharp and love the IQ...

The 135L is the new member of the family  ;D, after used it I'm shocked with the IQ of the Prime L lens... my question is:

It is noticeable the IQ "jump" from a 24-70L zoom to a 24LII prime, keep my 50... and maybe an 85L???

Someone has been in this situation??

(Btw: You guys have a really nice community here   :) have been around a long time without been a member)

The DR is VERY BAD on this body! What do you mean a maybe? Have you even seen how it compares to, say D800? It is like comparing a Fiat to a nice BMW when it comes to DR! The IQ across all kinds of situations is evident by the sensor!

Wow... Records full UDR (Ultra-Dynamic-Range),  up to 1,000,000:1

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon fixed 5DIII light leak with tape

"duct tape"?

I can feel the collective intelligence of the room dropping by the minute

Actually, it was pretty intelligent....for their bottom line. Imagine the cost of re-disigning hardware and then fixing all the current units. This was a very cost effective solution, and if you don't look under the hood, you can't even tell!

No, you misunderstand.  I'm totally fine with the fix - I'm also very familiar with the sort of adhesive/flexible plastic "tape" they use inside laptops/computers, etc...  But calling it "duct tape" is like saying that nasa-grade mylar is the same thing as reynolds wrap

 ;D dude!!, you just make my day LOL

V8Beast-- you live in Seattle? We should grab a coffee some time :)

Perhaps you'll appreciate this shot from Rizal Bridge I took back in 2010. I went to this stop some 30 times before I finally got an epic sunset. The colors lasted for like 30 minutes... it was insane. Used a 3-stop Daryl Benson Reverse GND filter, & still merged 4 exposures by hand in Photoshop, & still have noise in the trees when I print this. When I denoise the shadows, they just turn muddy. So in the end I chose to just stick with the noise. There's even a little banding in those shadows (this was shot on a 5D). This might be why I'm so interested in higher DR given that, like I said, this was already 4 exposures merged, each taken with that 3-stop Reverse GND...




Nice pic man!  :)

I know that a headlight isn't a wiring problem and tape is commonly used in circuitry. My point is that a Mickey Mouse job like this is a letdown to me as a consumer and what I pay for.

They should have sprayed a coat of unobtanium on it!!! right??  ::)

Just kidding man, but think about it, A complete assembly line with custom built parts made to perfectly fit inside this camera, so... which could be a "Non mickey mouse" solution for the light leak "issue"?

This might make me a bad person, but as a Canon fan, that thread makes me happy in all kinds of ways.


I know the feeling  ;)

Lenses / Re: Canon 85 1.8 vs. Sigma 85 1.4

Thank you all for your input.

K-Amps. I have the 135, and it is by far my favorite lens, but I feel that I also would like the 85 focal lenght. I borrowed the 1.2 II a couple of weeks, and I thought it was slow, and I found the AF to be a tad nerevous. I have a pretty good stack of L lenses, both primes and zooms. I have never had any other lenses than Canon (with the sole exception of a Tokina 17mm, which was broken when I bought it used on the web;).

+1 

The 135 is amazing, a bit long in a crop body but the quality is incredible, I have tried the 85 1.8 and 1.2... the 1.8 its a nice lens, fast focusing and good IQ for the price, the 1.2 its INSANE, even wide open the IQ is marvelous, it focuses slow in comparison, but the bokeh...  :o
