I always have highlight overexposure blink warnings enabled. Then I always know if my images are pushed too far to the right. Very useful and often photo saving feature.

35mm. It's more versatile. The 50mm is such an overrated lens not to mention not a good portrait lens.People's heads will get distorted when shot with the 50mm (unless you're going for the distorted head look).
Side of a lake, bag on a slope, tipped over, opened, 24mm f/1.4L II rolled out, all in slow motion, off it went, comedy-style, down to the waterline...plop! :-/
$312.08 repair charge for cleaning and water damage.
Maybe I got off lightly!
Every time I talk to my wife about purchasing new equipment.
So I spent the past couple of weeks researching portrait lenses (mostly this one and the 85mm f1.2), and partly as a result of this thread, I picked up the 135mm this afternoon. I can't wait to get out with it a bit tomorrow. I think my fiancée will really enjoy not waiting around for the slow focus of the 100mm f2.8L... fewer frozen smiles, here we come!
Also on the 5D3, it unfortunately goes to semi-automatic mode where I have to manually change the AFMA settings because Canon for some strange reason left that out of the official SDK. Works for the 6D, but not 5D3/1DX. Every time I've put in a support request saying "it's not there, fix it!" I get a response saying "the SDK is what it is, we'll take it under advisement". Which more or less, to me, says screw you, we don't give a crap.
Anyone know what Canon camera is in this below linked picture? Never seen one with the red piece by the hotshoe.
Update:Even more suspicious is the Canon logo has been removed, this has a pop-up flash and looks to be in new condition. Can't place the lens either the more I look at this - size wise looks like the 85mm 1.2 but the bulge appears different by the camera mount from the current 85,1.2???
