Man, talk about a great post.  Thanks so much for sharing it with us.

Lighting / Re: 600EX-RT: Viability as a remote shutter release?
« on: December 04, 2013, 12:22:54 PM »
Canon Remote Switch RS-80N3 can do half press just like the shutter button but of course is a wired connector.

I just ordered the EOS 5D Mark III Ec-B Focusing Screen.  Manual focusing and having to use reading glasses the change from TTL to Live View is too disruptive for me and makes it no fun.
So I avoid the use of my favorite lenses
I hope this brings me more functionality.
Thanks for the post.  It sounds like we have similar desires for the focus screen.

I hope Bob was further away from that than it looks!
Awesome shot though.

Lenses / Re: Photozone comparison of Canon 35L vs. Sigma 35mm F/1.4 'Art'
« on: October 01, 2013, 09:35:22 PM »
I bought the canon about six months before the sigma came out and if it had already been out that would have been my first non canon lens.

To me, that close right behind his ear with the machine gun rate going off, I'm sure it was extremely distracting for the priest. It could have been handled better but I blame the photogs the most.

Shouldn't they have tried the silent shutter option if they wanted to set up that close?

Lenses / Re: Canon 24-105mm f/4 IS : Seller's remorse?

If you did not sell now but kept it for another six months or so and still not using it, you'll know for sure that it will be ok to sell.

H & G.
We seriously should have stopped it at this first reply :)

Lenses / Re: Sell non L primes to get 24-70LII
« on: June 19, 2013, 02:03:51 PM »
Well it's not like your glass is bad and since you shoot so much you will probably know in a few weeks at most if you still have that feeling of wanting or needing the new 24-70 and if so get it.  From what I've read about it and following your comments in this thread you will use it well.
Especially if you are not using he flash, sell it to add to the pool.  You know the 24-105 will sell very fast when you are ready.
In other words I think you really want the 24-70 and will use it and enjoy it and I want to hear about it.

I can't think of ever reading anything on the feature that is a drawback or negative.
I use it at my daughters dance recitals all the time.  I have had the 5D Mk III for several months and before that a 7D.  With the 7D I used to get a lot of sideways looks because of the shutter noise.
Now, I have missed (I blame it on the slower shooting duration) shots with the silent shutter but people around me no longer take much notice, even with a gripped body and 70-200.

Speedlites, Printers, Accessories / Re: BG-E7 problems.

Myself, I only use Canon accessories but I have seen the other brands and there is very little difference besides cost.  I just prefer the Canon brand and warranty and support on them.

Software & Accessories / Re: Question about Lee Filters
« on: May 11, 2013, 04:46:21 PM »
I asked Lee after I got mine and they said no need for the tissue for all the reasons others have stated here.
They did suggest the soft lined cases like the ones mentioned.  I got the Lee 3 Filter Pouch.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Quality Manual Lenses
« on: March 28, 2013, 05:20:10 PM »
Samyang products are very high quality product at very reasonable price, so I would definitely recommend those lens, especially for video, if you have the money. You can also find good optics at very low price if you check on the old SMC Pentax-M, Takumar and Super-Takumar lens on ebay. You just need a 5$ adaptor to fit them on your 60d.
I second this suggestion.  My film camera and lenses are Pentax M lenxes on K mount.

It depends on how wide and fast going with Pentax M lenses though.
50MM f1.4 to f/2 are readily available and somewhat rarer is the 28 f/2.8. I see the 135 f3 or f/3.5 also and some zooms.  My Pentax lenses are from the early 80's and work just great to this day.

Lenses / Re: Suggestions for Zoom Lens for Canon Mark 5D Mark iii
« on: March 18, 2013, 02:45:17 PM »
A lens not listed, but mentioned, that is a good option, but a bit more expensive,  24-105mm f/4L IS USM, lightly used can be had for around $800, I know it is more but I would probably wait for that one over any of the others including the other L for what you listed you want to shoot.  Especially with the 5D Mk III high ISO quality.

It may not be the best lens made but it has great coverage and is a lot better than the 28-135.
