Lenses / Carl Zeiss 50 mm f/1.4
« on: August 10, 2012, 04:10:34 AM »
Have had this lens for less than 6 months, and although I love its build quality, contrast and sharpness, I have barely any use for a nifty fifty for frequent use. Tried to sell it over eBay and locally (Malta) but with no success. Any idea where I can sell this little beauty, preferably in the European Union.

Lenses / Re: Canon 400/4 DO - why no upgrade?
« on: August 10, 2012, 04:08:21 AM »
Very few are privy to Canon's plans, but the DO line never really caught on with sports and wildlife photographers, no matter how lighter the lens is, if the optical performance is still inferior to their heavier counterparts, togs will prefer carrying a heavier, but optically superior lens. All it takes is a carry case and a monopod/tripod/gimbal head (delete as appropriate).

Not the composition skills of a master now, are they?

You cannot replicate a polarizer in Photoshop. GND yes, CPL, no.

Have point linked spot AF on, no errors.

I have the combination you mention, the Hahnel Giga Pro works fine with the 1DX, both tethered directly and with the remote controller.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 1DX or 85mm 1.2?
« on: August 09, 2012, 02:25:23 PM »
Chicken or egg question really... lens quality always supersedes body but do you do mostly fashion requiring that shallow DOF at 1.2 or fast action needing the 12 fps and the weather sealing of the body??

For those with no errors, how much customization of the camera settings have you done?

Shawn L.

Completely customized on every possible menu... so yes, highly altered camera settings.

Lenses / Re: Canon 2x Extender III AF Performance
« on: August 04, 2012, 08:31:09 AM »
Use the 2x TC III on a 400 mm f/2.8 IS L I and the 70-200 mm f/2.8 L IS II on a 1DX, shooting birds, soccer, rugby and waterpolo. Yet to notice any problems with AF tracking.
