Lenses / Re: 16-35 maybe 17-40
« on: March 09, 2013, 06:43:03 PM »
not as wide but you can also consider Tamron 19-35.  It's dirt cheap but IQ comparable to 17-40.  Just be prepared to AFMA though.

Landscape / Re: How Would You Edit This Landscape Photo?
« on: March 09, 2013, 12:40:18 AM »
Just my interpretation.  Disclaimer: I didn't take this picture.  Processed with DPP's HDR tool.  If I were to take this picture, I'd be bringing a GND and/or take bracketed pictures so I can be sure the highlights aren't overblown.  I'm having a slow internet connection thus I lowered down the resolution.

I'd say just keep it but keep saturation a little bit low.  When I'm taking pictures, sometimes I want to preserve the feeling/mood that I get from the environment when I took the picture and most of the time it's all about lighting.

Lenses / Re: Full Frame Lens Choice to Match 7D and 17-55 2.8 IS.

24-70 F2.8 (I/II) or 24-70 F4 or the Tamron version.  24-105 F4 IS is also a nice match.

I wonder if this drives the 5D2 prices down a little bit more.

Exclusively for video? Hooray!  ::)

The development of the technology is what's important.  It will surely translate to stills eventually or it might not depending on the IQ and DR produced by such tech. 

Portrait / Re: A Portrait of Poverty . . .

To OP, if you really want to get a picture of poverty, I suggest that you go to the slums in Philippines.  I'm familiar with it and for a long time, I want to take picture of it but the danger of losing your gadgets there would be very high.  Your pictures would look rich compared to what you'll be able to get there.

If it were me taking this pic, I'll try to zoom it a little bit.  I'll try to take out the tree at the right side and shoot it in portrait mode.  I'll also try bracketing 3 pictures and do some HDR to retain the highlights.  I understand that it seems that the DR to get everything seems a little bit high.  A GND won't help because the trees are too high.  Well, that's my opinion.  Have fun shooting!

Lenses / Re: Best lens for baby portraits?
« on: February 28, 2013, 09:30:57 PM »
I'd suggest a 17-55 f/2.8 on the crop body! Probably the best and THE only EFS lens whose IQ is at par with the precious Ls.

there's another EFS lens at par or better than L lens.  60mm macro.

I love this lens.  This is my very first lens.  It has its weaknesses but it should not stop you from taking good pictures.

EOS Bodies / Re: Too early to sell 60D?
« on: February 27, 2013, 12:23:58 AM »
As the title of this post states, I am wondering what others think about me getting rid of my 60D with hopes Canon is soon to launch the 70D or whatever it may be? The only real reason I am considering selling it now, is that I am afraid the value will decrease again once it's replacement is released & I will end up not getting very much for it.
Normally, I don't like to buy the latest/greatest until it has had a bit of time on the market to iron out bugs and such, but I am sick of the ISO performance of the 60D and can't afford to go to a Mk3 and I have no interest in the 6D. Thanks for any and all advice!

Don't expect too much on ISO performance for the 70D.  If anything else, Canon will just introduce better noise reduction.  If you really want to decrease noise, you have to go for a larger sensor.  Investing on a better lens is also better than investing on another

Lenses / Re: What are Canon's sharpest lenses?
« on: February 26, 2013, 06:43:07 PM »
100mm macro usm.  It's the sharpest lens I've tried so far even at 2.8.

I love my 50mm...  This is my daughter while having some haircut.

Canon General / Re: What am I doing wrong???
« on: February 25, 2013, 03:21:23 AM »
Your lens might need an AFMA or send it to Canon with your camera so they can fine-tune it.  I've done the same thing for my 28mm.
