Lenses / Re: recommendation: canon 24mm f1.4 or 85mm f1.2 for wedding?
« on: October 09, 2014, 12:11:36 AM »
85 would likely be a lot more useful. 24 is wider than you think. But I think you need a 24-70 in there. I'd grab the 85 1.8 and 24-70 if I were you. 85 1.2 is a jewel but you have other holes you need to fill before spending it all on that IMO.

Thanks guys. Yeah, if only tilt shifts had AF. But no, it's not too hard to get focus using the screen, with 10 times zoom. Of course it would be easier to just shoot with an AF lens but hey, sometimes you have to make sacrifices to get a specific look, and a tilt-shift portrait just can't be imitated (well).

Rented the 45mm for a wedding a couple weeks ago. It's nice for group/couple shots and landscapes, but yeah I'm thinking it's too wide for my main uses:



Lenses / 45mm vs. 90mm tilt-shift

So I've finally given up waiting for the new L tilt-shifts and have decided to grab either the current 45mm or 90mm. Right now I'm thinking I'm gonna go with the 90mm because I want it more for portraits, but the 45mm is still calling my name as I see it as a more versatile lens.

No to mention the Sigma is more than double the price and size.

Not asking if it's an upgrade, asking if it'a worth it and asking which has the better looking bokeh.

No I'm talking about the new art lens

Lenses / 50mm f/1.4 Canon vs. Sigma
« on: September 28, 2014, 02:23:34 PM »
I currently have the Canon version and while sometimes it takes amazing images, a lot of the time I find it's super soft or just misses focus. I also own the 85mm f/1.8, which I find to be much sharper and hits focus a lot more often, so it's not me having a focus issue.

My question is, would it be worth switching to the Sigma version? I'm mostly worried about it not having the creamy bokeh that the Canon version has because the Sigma is a much sharper lens.

Example of when I hate this lens:


Focus is off and image is super soft. Not a fan of the bokeh in this either.

Examples of when I love this lens:

I was serious about cats. I'm buying the 24mm 1.4 L II next month basically just for cat photos. Great background blur and distorted perspective makes them look cuter.
