Thanks Richard for illuminating us!

Even in-camera saturation 0, I prefer neutral or faithful settings.

Saturation 0, vibrance never above 10

I don't have access to that glass unfortunately, have the 135 f/2 but I prefer the 70-200 II for versatility

So use the 70-200 II ;)

Trust me I will but was asking whether anyone whether a longer telephoto has a use for closer portrait shots.

Lenses / Lens choice for concert
« on: September 13, 2012, 02:29:07 PM »
Will be shooting at a rock/orchestra concert in 2 days time, besides the 1DX in spot metering mode, what lens choice should I go for? I was going for 70-200 f/2.8, 8-15 mm fisheye and 24 mm TS-E for creative shots. Would there be a particular need for the 400 mm for close tight shots of performers?

Lee have a detailed list of retailers on their website, go through and email the ones close to your area of residence and will usually manage to get a retailer who has current stock of whatever filter or adapter you are looking for.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Wide angle lens for EF-S?
« on: September 10, 2012, 01:39:10 PM »
Canon 10-22 or Tokina 11-16. Don't bother with the others.

Seconded, for EF-S those are the best. The crop factor would mess up using L lenses in the 16-40 mm range.

I do not believe it is doable, not at the D800 price point, and not without a new sensor. And Canon is not losing sleep over losing customers to Nikon over the D800.

Lenses / Re: 400, 200 or...?
« on: September 07, 2012, 06:13:14 PM »
I was in the same situation recently, and ended up buying a second hand 400 mm f/2.8 L IS. Cannot be happier, shoot mostly outdoors, and although IQ is a bit inferior with a 2xTC III attached, it is still fast to AF on a 1DX
