I looked outside my door last night and found a nice fog had rolled in.  My neighbor's house has some lovely backlight.

Beautiful shot! This reminds me of a haunted cabin in the woods!

Soo good!

The trendy hipster clothing; the moped with its constant signal on; the vegan meal; and the interviews! Oh man, can't stop laughing

Like I said earlier in this thread, I am on my fourth copy and finally got a reasonably good one.

Canon has lost my confidence with this lens. Reading peoples' troubles and experiences with this extremely expensive piece of equipment has left such a spurt taste. My own experience with Canon Canada with regards to a repair on my first copy was enough to make me look at competitor brand glass more seriously, even if the image quality isn't quite up to par. At least most of the competitors are offering 5x the warranty for half the cost.

Looks like I might be reinstalling magic lantern on my 5D2. I will leave it off my 5D3 for the time being. Should be quite interesting though!

Lenses / Re: Strange Lens Flare (Sigma 35mm + MRC filter)

Here's my snapshot from the other night.

ISO 3200
35mm
f/2.8
1/125

Like I said previously, I thought the flare my just be caused by my filter. After reading this thread I'm 95% sure it's just the mirror box in the camera now. Not a big deal... I've never had this type of flare before in any image that really counted.

Just want to add that I was shooting with the 5D2 late last night with my 24-70 f/2.8 II and experienced this same sort of flare in one or two of my photos. I put it down to the filter at the time, but after reading this thread regarding the phenomenon occurring with only the 5D2, it makes sense as I've never seen this lens have that flare on my 5D3.

Looks like its nothing to worry about. I'll post my flare picture tomorrow from the 5D2 and 24-70 II.

Another point: don't suddenly swing the lens when the IS is being turned on or off (before you hear the IS park noise), or you can risk damage the IS module.

Interesting point. I have never heard that one before either.

Lenses / Just bought a 70-200 f/2.8L IS II - A Few Questions
« on: December 31, 2013, 03:08:33 PM »
I finally sold my non-IS 70-200 and updated to this amazing piece of glass. So far I am incredibly impressed with the image quality it produces on both my 5D2 and 5D3. I just have a few questions regarding the proper use of some of the switches:

- I have heard in the past that it is not good for a lens to switch from the image stabilization off when the camera is powered on. Does it matter if I switch image stabilization modes from 1 to 2 when the camera is powered up, or should I turn the camera off before I make the switch?

- Another thing I noticed is that there is a slight wiggle, or a bit of movement left and right, when the lens is attached securely to the camera body. Is this normal to expect this slight movement?


Thanks!

Man, I wish I had this lens. Having that sort of subject isolation is incredible. The bokeh is insane!


Beautiful shots everyone! :)
