EOS Bodies / Re: Patent: EF 85mm f/1.2L III and Others
« on: March 31, 2014, 08:46:36 AM »
I would be particularly interested to see what an updated EF 85mm f/1.2L would be like. The II is an awesome piece of glass yet a little clumsy and slow. Optically I love it!!!

Lenses / Re: f2.8 16-35mmL vs. f4 17-40mmL

I love the 16-35 mm for its versatility and it allows for great creativity if corner-to-corner sharpness is not a primary concern. the sun-stars are awesome - i prefer these over photoshop sun-stars.

I am not impressed with the corner image quality of the 16-35 mm though. I would not recommend it for landscape photography, I'd rather recommend either the 24 of 17 mm TS-E lenses for landscape.

+1 on the TS-E 24L II for landscapes...

I believe there is no better choice for the serious landscape photographer, you can

- shift & stitch to increase the angle further
- tilt for perfect end-to-end sharpness

when already the TS-E 24L II offers the best image quality of all (Canon) 24mm lenses.

i used lightroom 4 for a wedding album too. it is very neat from a workflow point of view. you can work directly with your raw files in an non-destructive workflow. book production at blurp allows for reasonable customization, is convenient and very good quality - no "fotopaper" though. lightroom 5 allows for improved control over the template.

in my opinion clearly:
16-35 2.8 ii $800
85mm 1.2 ii $800

Lenses / Re: to TS-E or not to TS-E?

I have both the 17 and 24II ts-e lenses, and while I certainly agree that to get the most out of them it's best to use the tripod / live view combination, most often I use them hand held.  It takes a bit more patience, but for stationary subjects the results are fairly easy to obtain. (I mostly use shift, only occasionally tilt.)  One thing to note is that when shifting more than about 5mm off center, the in camera meter gets pretty inaccurate.  i often meter and focus first, then shift.  The image below was taken with the 17mm with about 10 mm of shift, handheld.

can only fully agree with everything in that statement!!!!

Two handheld examples from travelling Tuscany below.

A few samples with the TS-E 17mm...

2920: Tilted downwards to have the focal plane equal the floor thus that the latter is sharp foreground to Background.

3365: Most classical usecase (in my opinion), shifted upwards to preserve parallel lines.

3208: Less obvious usecase (in my opinion), shifted downwards to have more water and thus reflection in the picture while maintaining vertical lines.

All pictures were taken with camera handheld. Shifting is not so much of a problem handheld, the electronic gauge helps altough you can also control the parallel lines quite well trough the viewfinder.
