EOS Bodies / Re: 5D MkIII instructions - Rant !!

Most pointless thread and most pointless rant ever?

Clearly IQ isn't the most important thing in photojournalism. It's all about capturing stories. Canon is great for this because of the speed and ergonomics. Some of those pictures aren't the greatest compositionally, creatively, etc, but they tell a story. Obviously stats from say studio photographers are going to be totally different.

Pretty obvious stuff, and I don't even know anything.

By pros you mean pro photo-journalists.

I'm surprised how popular the 16-35 is with them compared to the 24-70.

100 f/0.5 IS Macro TS-E

If I can pick currently non-existent lenses as well:

14-24L 2.8
135L 1.8 IS II
24L TS-E

24L TS-E

Starting to change my mind totally and think of going for the 45 TS-E + the 85 1.8. 45 is probably a better focal length for me considering I'd love to use tilt-shift also for creative portraits and the miniature effect as well as landscapes. The 24 is generally too wide for portraits and miniature effect. It would be a lot easier to decide if the 45 TS-E L were out already.

Yeah I was thinking going 24 TS-E + 85 1.8 until I can afford the 1.2 might be the best idea. Though even that might be a bit out of my price range for now. Need to make it work. The 85 1.8 is also about $150 cheaper in the US....

Anyone else?

So an ND 1.2 is 4 stops. Where can I get one of these crazy 10 stop filters? I've never seen more than a 1.2.

Thanks guys. I've used the 17 and 24 tilt shifts before and they're by far the most fun I've ever had with a lens, it's just a matter of what is actually more important right now, which I'm trying to decide. I plan on owning them both eventually, just a matter of when I'll have enough money. The other thing to consider is I'll be in New York for the holidays and the 24 TS-E is almost $800 cheaper in the US, whereas the 85 is the same price in Canada (I live in Canada).

So my current lenses are 8-15 f/4 L, 24-70 f/2.8 II L, 50 f/1.4, 70-200 f/4 IS L, 100 f/2.8 L, with a 5D3.

I'm trying to decided between the 85L and the 24 TS-E for my next lens, which is a night and day decision. It will probably be my last (expensive) lens for a while. I shoot basically everything, including films. I'm trying to decide which lens will give me the more creative opportunity, but also fill some holes. The 24 will fill my landscape hole, while the 85 would fill my portrait hole. I wouldn't use the 24 conventionally though, and I would also love it for video because you can create really cool effects that can be used for dream sequences, etc. The 85 would be great for its amazing bokeh and low light performance.

I know none of you can objectively answer this question, but I'd love to hear some opinions anyway.

So just shifting the lens also works fine? Probably gonna be buying the 24 TS-E next month....

Actually, apparently you're supposed to shift the camera, not the lens.
