Animal Kingdom / Re: Portrait of your "Best friend"

'Willem', almost 1 yr old. This shot was made using a NEX-6 and an adapted vintage Canon FL 50mm f3.5 Macro (lens released in 1965). The lens has 6 aperture blades, 4 elements in 3 groups and is a 'Tessar' optical design that delivers fabulous bokeh.

Maybe I'll take the 80's approach and stick 'turbo' logo's onto everything. Say what do you think of my 5D Mk II 'Turbo'?  ;D

I need both!!!!

The worst case of 'gas' is when you can convince yourself that you really 'need' everything :)

Shot the skyline of downtown Houston yesterday after sunset. Both pictures were shot from the same spot. The time difference was about 20 mins.

Cool shot!

Interested in getting this lens. Which is better, get a Canon mount lens + EMF chip for AF confirmation & correct EXIF data or Nikon Mount lens with Nikon to Canon EF adapter (Nikon mount lens has AE support and focus confirmation) ? In short, which is the more reliable way to get the AF confirmation light & correct EXIF data? TIA

I would add the EMF chip.  Going with the adapter means that you introduce the possibility of some image quality less through an adapter that is less than perfect.

I agree, and if you get a programmable chip you can do your own calibration.

I need help! Spring is in the air and I am coming down with GAS, I am spending to much time looking at lens reviews....how can I rid myself of this affliction?..? ;) ;)
Fortunately I seem to have some sort of immunity against GAS... ;)
Looking at the gear in your signature, is there anything left to buy?  :-P

I see only one camera body. That's impossible!

More from (old) Delhi, shot from the back of a rickshaw. I had the iso's cranked to get shutterspeeds fast enough to deal with the jolting ride - and my 5DMkII Servo AF was working overtime.

These samples were shot 'from the rear' but the whole series can be found here (warning, contains shots from the front of the subjects):

I took this picture on a recent trip to India. I did not bring my 5D3, went only with the X100s.
This was such a peaceful scenery, I'm glad I had a camera with me.

Same place I think. Jama Masjid (Mosque), Delhi. The haze was awful when I visited. 5DMkII + 24-105L.

Looking at the gear in your signature I think there's plenty of room for some indulgence. Enjoy!

don't fight it, it only gets easier

pretty soon you'll accumulate enough red rings and white lenses to mask purchases from the wife as you continue to struggle with GAS.

LOL  ;D

It gets worse when you decide you need a second camera system. For me that's the NEX but I've managed to keep GAS in that system down to some very affordable vintage lenses - and I limit myself to FD mount lenses too. As for the Canon system: a 5DMkIII, a 100 f/2.8 L IS USM and a 70-300L within two months, now that's big GAS :o  :o :-\

Thanks for posting, the lens looks good but a little big too! Still, it's quite yummie :)

"A flower shaped hood is unnecessary on a prime lens" Who is he kidding.

I can't believe no one mentioned using EOS Utility - you can do it entirely from your PC.

Errhh... I was the second to reply and there it is: ;)

You can update the firmware using EOS utility. See attached manual. Good luck.
Oops - that's what I get for trying to read the forum on my phone :o.  Your advice is always excellent, of course, unlike my eyes ;)

No worries! I wouldn't say my advice is always at the same level though, as I'm only human :)
