Lenses / Re: 16-35F4 L IS, Any good?
« on: March 02, 2015, 08:29:32 PM »
for the TSE 17mm I can get the proportions down pretty fast I dont mind the tripod at all, yes i saw the software correction but there is a draw back I also notice when I did some shots, if it was done with the TSE 17mm the big gaps will be corrected. Actually the software is mimicking the TSE Lens correction but being that wide angles dont shift like that there will be gaps. and Lee has a adapter filter for it, you guys could check it out, it's not cheep however but it's available on ebay. Ill see what goes when im done testing, if i do choose to get the TSE ill just keep what i got and get that instead. Thanks again for the replies.

Thanks for that info, Ill have to rent a copy and check this out, I also like the TSE 17mm for keeping lines straight in buildings and for the shifting, do you guys think that is a good thing? Ill have to rent them both and see which one is for me.

no disrespect about this lens im sure its pretty good, but from reading all the pointers im sure they are honest opinions but I never saw this kind of feed back when the 17-40 vs the 16-35 2.8 most people praised the 16-35 2.8 even thous landscape photogs used f7 -f22 not really f2.8. maybe i missed something but all i see is just marketing hype and it could be just a mind thing. the 17-40 has always bin a pretty good landscape lens in it's class for the price.

I would go as far to say it looks more like 100MP detail this machine can pump out. But dont take my word for it.

EOS Bodies / Re: What will become of the 5D Mark III?
« on: February 05, 2015, 06:38:15 PM »
I can't afford to be cutting edge so I stay a generation behind.  I've been shooting the 5DII since spring 2012, right after the 5D III was shipping.

So all you 5DIII owners, take care of my future camera please.  ;D

I have bin using mine since 2010 and i am very happy, no problems at all, however, i would go as far to say this, people that buy the mk3 should have no problems in getting the mk4 people will always get what they want no matter the price unless they are not that happy another new machine that has come to replace what they already have so fast is a disappointment to them. I know this day would come and i am pretty confident that this mk4 , R and S will be the next best thing that will be a good seller and image producer, and the rants and raves will continue to follow through. I may not get this one either but I know well enough that even these bodies will die in time as well.
Good glass and those beautiful moments that is there to capture is all I really care about.

What will become of the 5D Mark III?  It will remain an excellent camera capable of delivering terrific images.

Actually once the new 5D is released all 5DM3's will become an inferior camera from an image quality, autofocus and build perspective.   It will amaze the posters on this forum that one can even contemplate creating an image that would pass minimum acceptable standards with that camera.  Seriously sell you lightly used 5DM3's now for little money.  Whatever you can get for them now will far exceed what you could get for that junk in a couple of months.

I will pay $900 for an example with less than 10,000 shutter clicks.   But understand - I am doing you a favor.

it still feels like to me that this camera just came out yesterday and today it's gone. Thats very scary to me how fast bodies die out before they even start.

It will be discontinued ::)

I am more interested in what's going on with the 1Dx and 1Dc.
$800 and $4000 price drops, something's going on there.
New body?
Weak Yen?
Inventory back up?
Raising money to make a Japanese Mafia protection payment?

Something is going on.

Hahaha Good one!

EOS Bodies / Re: More About the EOS 5DS & EOS 5DS R

I can't seem to find the logic as to why people complain about certain things.

We have options for everyone. Why is it when a new option comes along people act like they are being forced to buy it at gunpoint for something it is not intended?

When 7D2 was released, people complained it didn't have a flippy touch screen and wifi. Does the 70D not exist?

When the 11-24 was rumored, people complained it is too wide, too slow, and doesn't take filters. So no other fast UWA lens exists that takes filters?

I really hope people's lives are not so boring and miserable that they feel the need to just constantly complain. These companies are giving us amazing options for little or no profit. I swear some people would complain about a free sandwich because it wasn't slice at the angle they prefer.  :)

I bet if we took someone from 1990 and brought them ahead in time, they would be dumbfounded, and eager to slap some people around for their perceived "first world problems." Back then, digital photography was a fantasy. Today, it is better than anyone could have ever imagined.

I fully agree, that's why I just focus on the important things in life, its just to dam short to waste it on bit*** and complaining. I never saw yet or heard of any judges asking what camera took this shot before deciding on which images is a winner.

Looks like to me that people are more into the hardware instead of mastering what they got and make it work, technology from 8 years ago is way more advance than 50 years ago, and even thou having the latest and greatest is nice, it will never make you take better pictures. I heard from somewhere that cameras don't take pictures people do.

EOS Bodies / Re: 50mp Cameras Coming in March [CR1]

So I guess my question would be why would there be two versions what are the advantages of each I confuse easily Thank you
If the objects in focus in the image NOT have straight lines, and has NO repetitive geometric shapes, the AA filter is not required.

A camera with no AA filter, using a high sharp lens produces images that can be printed in very large sizes while maintaining sharpness. But objects like fabrics, screens, grids, and other highly subject to moiré can ruin a photo without AA filter.
I understand what your saying here about the AA filter that's great info to know but saying it will ruin a photo without the filter is a little over board here, im sure there's more to a photo than just a filter pass, it's good to have it if one can but it's not that serious. so many great images out there without this filter in camera's but I get your point here on the advantages of having one in the camera. Thanks.
