Reviews / Re: Review - Canon EF 50 f/1.2L
« on: January 12, 2013, 11:42:04 AM »
Sigmalux is still the best fast fifty ;)

My reasons:
1] EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM
2] MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5x Macro
3] TS-E 17mm f/4L
4] EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM
5] EF 40mm f/2.8 STM
6] better ergonomics
7] aperture control in LiveView
8] Magic Lantern
9] mRAW, sRAW
10] Nikon lenses are more expensive
11] Nikon's backward lens mount just feels wrong
12] I can use any Nikon lens on Canon body (via adapter), like 14-24/2.8G (which is an UWA lens, so manual focus is not a problem)

EDIT:
13] No green tint LCD! :)

Lenses / Re: Please help, did I receive a defective lens? 40mm f/2.8

My copy (on 5D2) sounds just like this one
Canon 40mm f2.8 STM Lens (HD) Review - DSLR FILM NOOB
EDIT: I'm sorry, time code didn't work, it is at 3m 45sec.

It is completely quiet if I turn the focusing ring reeeaaally slow, faster MF makes more noise.

That video only shows the AF sound though.

And mine is silent too when I MF slowly...

So I guess the MF noise is normal? If so then I don't know if I want to keep this lens...


Well, it may be too loud for videos when using the built-in mic in auto mode (which turns up the volume when adapting to low ambient noise). I don't find it to be a problem when there are people talking around.

Do you miss APS-C?

No, but I miss high pixel density FF, like 4.3µm (46mp).

Zooms for work.
Primes for pleasure.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Only 1 lens
« on: December 11, 2012, 03:01:00 PM »
In a similar situation, I would (probably) replace all my DSLR gear with something like PowerShot G1 X.
Or, if the situation was temporary (like 3 to 6 month), then I'd keep the 5D2 with 50/1.8II.

I am also worried about missing out on the advantage of having a cropped sensor. 

I signed up an account just to comment on this.  There is *no* advantage to a crop sensor.  How would you feel if you had FF camera, but the camera cropped the picture before it saved it to the card?  You would feel cheated!  Same deal, only it's a physical limitation.

Source:  I am a senior optical engineer.

I agree. Smaller sensor size is not an advantage, it's a compromise. However, higher pixel density is an advantage for cropping and APS-C sensor is physically limited to do only that - capturing 40% of the FF image.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Using 1DX in very low temperatures
« on: December 08, 2012, 07:10:54 AM »
-10°C to -15°C are not extreme temperatures for Moscow. -20°C to -40°C are :D
However, Canon's recommended working temperature range is 32-104°F/0-40°C

Lenses / Re: Best Value "Normal" Lens for 6d?
« on: December 02, 2012, 09:37:19 PM »
40/2.8STM is a good value lens for general all-around non-sports use and it seems like this lens will be one of the kit options for 6D.

Most of the 6D buttons are on the right side of the camera, which allows to operate menus (like playback or delete) using only right hand without switching from the "ready to shoot" position.

It depends on sensor size. You need something wider than 40mm for APS-C.

FF (5D3)

40mm is pretty close to 35mm, but I don't think that I'd need another must-have prime between 40mm and 100mm for the trinity, which is 35~50 / 70~100 / 135~200.
