If budget is not an issue, the new 24-70 II is the way to go. On my copy, Reikan FoCal showed the sharpness at f2.8 is 985. Not many zoom lenses out there have this kind of sharpness at f2.8."Many owners of 24-105 claimed their copy is razor sharp, but the Canon MTF chart doesn't indicate that at all. Again...I owned 2 copies of 24-105 in the past and I didn't see that" I agree with you on that Dylan!
My comment is based on real life shooting.....let me know if you want to see some photos with 5D III.
Many owners of 24-105 claimed their copy is razor sharp, but the Canon MTF chart doesn't indicate that at all. Again...I owned 2 copies of 24-105 in the past and I didn't see that. I ended up shooting alot with 50mm f1.4 @ f1.8 to 2.8.
"not sure what you mean, there's 24-70 and 24-105." Thanks Elf, I meant 24-70mm, typo...The tilt shifts sound intriguing, I imagine expensive too. Seems like the majority feels like a wider zoom like the 24-105mm isn't a good idea. If I'm going zoom I need to look at the 24-90MM, I'm thinking version 1 or version 2 would be fine.
not sure what you mean, there's 24-70 and 24-105.
These are great general purpose zooms ... but maybe not the best choices as specialized landscape or RE photography lenses. These are more your "walkaround" lenses.QuoteSeems like primes are the most recommended lenses though.
The issue is distortion. Zooms generally have heavy barrel distortion at the wide end, so if you're shooting at 24mm a lot, a lens that is 24-xx will give you a lot of barrel distortion whereas even an inexpensive prime (e.g. the 24mm f/2. will not. The new 24-70mm for example is sharper at 24mm than the 24mm f/2.8 prime but has much more distortion.
However, if you shoot with an ultra wide like the 17-40 or the 16-35, it's already well out of its widest by 20mm, so you should be able to shoot at 24mm without much trouble with distortion.
Tilts are great but expensive, about $2k for the wide angles (e.g. 17mm or 24mm)
My 7D with the 16-35mm II, I used the Photographers Ephmerisis app to time and locate sunrise, fun stuff.That's a killer image Steve!

FF is great, the 5diii in my opinion is the best FF all around camera ever made, i own one and think it's a pleasure to use. That being said aps c has its place, and offers a compelling advantage in total system cost when paired with equally good Efs lenses. Someone mentioned a 600mm lens on ff, for a lot of folks sinking $13k in a lens is a bit steep, and yet with aps c you can get to 600 with the relatively affordable 100-400. Sure it may not be the "same", but for anyone who is somewhat price conscious that is going to be a consideration. If I was still an aps c shooter I would certainly be concerned canon may abandon the high end aps c model especially if I didn't feel the advantages of FF were worth the trade off in higher cost.+1

So many great shots on this page 55 ..don't know where to start..Steven, Anand - those owl photos are truly incredible..keep 'em coming!That's a great one Rev! The Kestrels are so fast & furious! Nice image!
Got up close 'n personal yesterday with this American Kestrel. Upon existing the San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary in Irvine, this usually skittish bird allowed me a few quick shots before taking off. Though all were quite nice, this one is perhaps the best

i owned a cropped body for all of about a month before the 5D came out and when it did i scrambled to get it. i could never get over the crop factor killing the wide angle end of my lenses and hated the idea of getting lenses that couldn't migrate to any body i would get in the future. i'm a full frame fool.Agierke, I couldn't agree more with this one statement: "hated the idea of getting lenses that couldn't migrate to any body i would get in the future." That has always bothered me! Hence I buy mostly EF lenses for my 7D! Now they work for both! I haven't had the crop factor "kill" any of my wide angle work though...
welcome to the world of FF!
Two of my favorites
We should start a CR landscape Exhibit and go on tour.It would be difficult to argue with you about that Rev! There are some fantastic images here!
Red Tailed Hawk. Photographed this past week with my 5D Mark iii, 100-400 4.5-5.6 L IS, ISO 640. Cropped, brightened, contrast increased slightly and shadows lightened slightly for effect.
