EOS Bodies / Re: Is ARRI Canon's Biggest Obstacle in Professional Cinema?
« on: January 20, 2014, 03:22:37 PM »
As to the title of this thread, NO.

Canon's Cinema line is not in the same league as an Arri cam. Most probably the Canons were used for the quick shots where there was a danger of the camera being destroyed. Since the Canons are so small, they can be strapped to cars and other vehicles unlike the huge Arri cameras.

Wonderful news! Let's wait for some time when tests are performed and price drops a bit :) I really expect that Sigma 50 mm 1.4 will be much better than (20 years!!!! old) Canon 50 mm 1.4. I am really disappointed regarding Canon's approach to lenses. Canon's new lenses are superb quality (e.g. 24-70), however, their price tag is too high for average customers. From another side, Sigma & Tamron is able to manufacture and offer to customers PRO line lenses, which are really affordable.

I am really surprised that Canon was sleeping for 20 years and has not updated its 50 mm 1.4. Despite the fact tah Sigma's equivalent is 2x expensive I will sell my Canon 50 mm 1.4 and will by Sigma. Canon is starting to loose quite significant market to Sigma and Tamron. Canon users are not Apple users, they think! Accordingly, I would expect that many people will by Sigma 50 1.4, which is based on new technology, excells Canon, quality is Similar to Zeiss (I really expect that :D ) but price is affordable.

Canon should be ashamed to offer (in the future) non-L 50 mm 1.8 IS....

I am a happy user of both Sigma and Tamron lenses, and am using a Macbook pro to write this reply. I think quite a lot before buying things.

Sucks being a poor college student; so much stuff I want but so little money! D=

i'm not a fan of belt systems at all...on a big and heavy camera, it just feels weird walking around with.
i bought the Capture, it works for mirrorless cameras but on a 5d3 with only a 24-70, it felt so uncomfortable on the belt or even on a backback..i just didn't like the feeling of it..it just feels like someone pulling your belt as you walk.

i then went to buy the b-grip evo..thinking with the large surface area it would be better...i was wrong, it felt even more weird and unnatural to walk around with and a hassle to use..

i also was using the Black Rapids for a while but i felt that it does get in the way whe i'm sitting or squatting down because the strap would fall off my shoulder even with the extra harness...

Ultimately, the one strap that is pretty unknown but works FANTASTIC for me...it's a sling style, it is adjustable in length on the fly and is lockable and is super light and comfortable..I use this strap ALL the time now and it's the best strap i've used by far....It's none other than the Joby Ultrafit strap

for bigger dslrs there's a thicker version

Go check it out..it really is that great a product that is very overlooked.

That connects to the bottom, which I hate. There are no choices on the connection. Plus, the lens is digging into the guys stomach in the demo and it would get more uncomfortable with a bigger lens. It may work better in practice though I do not know. I am kind of sold on the peak design leash as a strap and their capture clip for use on hikes and stuff. I was actually just about to buy the leash but hearing about a more padded version is making me wait and see. What I love about that leash is that I have a choice where to attach the strap.

Hopefully another quality lens by Sigma! Hope its $899 like its little brother the 35mm 1.4.

Thanks for the review frank.

Some people seem very quick to write this lens off but I'll wait until more reviews and hands on. I was considering the 100-400 Canon before I heard about this lens. Honestly, if this lens can outresolve the Canon at the 200-400 length and have decent sharpness at the 500-600 focal lengths I am sold. Of course, the AF speed should be at least on par with the Canon if not better. If that is all in then I will buy one in a heartbeat. I am not a pro but just need a super tele for the rare times I shoot wildlife or sports.

I want this so bad but don't have the money at the moment. when do you guys think the price will remain at around $2700 permanently and not go back up to $3200 like it keeps doing?

Lenses / Re: Canon 24mm f2.8 IS Prime or Tamron 24-70 f2.8 VC Zoom
« on: December 08, 2013, 04:29:47 PM »
If you favor the 24mm focal length and know beforehand that the majority if your shots will be at 24mm I suggest going for the prime as it will be faster and sharper.

If you require a walk around lens for general shooting, from landscapes to portraits and everything in between, the tamron is an excellent all around lens. You wouldn't need IS at 24mm anyways. You say you do portraits and if you don't want to switch lenses, you might be limited with just the 24mm so maybe Tamron is better for that particular purpose.
Which camera will the lens be used on?

EOS Bodies / Re: "Two New FF Bodies in 2014" - if 5DM4, would you jump in?
« on: November 30, 2013, 03:51:10 PM »
hope the 5D4 gets 4 k video and native raw video mode , if it gets that , I will get it.

Canon already said they don't believe RAW video should be on lower end cameras (relative to their Cinema range) so no Canon endorsed RAW video for you, especially not 4K.

Why is Sigma so opposed to adding weather sealing? This could be a top lens if it had weather sealing. Same goes for their other recent lenses.

If they make a super telephoto it obviously won't be an ART lens. They have three lines: Art, Contemporary, and Sports. The telephoto will obviously go into Sports and standard zooms go into Contemporary; primes go into Art.

From around two weeks to three days. Good job Tamron.

If its the same price as the Tamron and performs as well if not better I'm down.
