Lenses / Re: Input on building a prime lens kit
« on: September 08, 2014, 02:16:52 AM »
With just 3 lenses id get

24, 50, 135

24 1.4 is a fantastic prime. Will deliver images and dof you've never seen in such a wide angel
50 1.2 is a staple lens for me. Close enough to 35 and 85 to warrant not having all 3
135 2.0 just delivers beautiful images/boken

Lenses / Teleconverter crop factor conundrum
« on: August 09, 2014, 01:27:09 PM »
I'm considering buying a 1.4tc to go on my 400mm 5.6. I've often wondered, which is better in terms of IQ:

Using 400mm (no tc) on 60d?
Using 400mm on 5d3 and cropping?
Using 400mm on 5d3 with a 1.4tc?

These options all yield a similar focal length, but which would give a better overall result?

Cheers
Al

I have 9 lenses all of which are calibrated perfectly (no afma require at all) across both bodies.

What method of AFMA do you use?  Out of 3 pro bodies and 11 L lenses I have never had a lens and body combo that did not require AFMA adjustment.  I have also only seen a couple of lenses from other photogs over the years that did not require any afma adjustment.  You must be the luckiest camera and lens buyer in the world to get perfectly calibrated lenses and bodies...

I use dot tune method. Plus I return any lens with any afma inconsistencies and get another copy

I knew it was a problem because images were not in focus on my 60d.

Yes, i could afma on 5d3 but I refuse to spend 1000£ on a lens that doesn't work on both my bodies. I have 9 lenses all of which are calibrated perfectly (no afma require at all) across both bodies.

no, no problems... and if the correction solved it i don´t know why the hell i would send it in...  ???

sending in only the lens doesn´t help much.. it´s a camera + lens combination thing.

You can't correct for afma on 60d which makes for out of focus shots

The 24 70 ii is sublime and you won't regret it.

Lenses / Tamron 150 600 woes
« on: August 02, 2014, 01:04:01 PM »
Bought a tamron 150 600 for my 5d3 and 60d. It has AFMA problems (-6 tele, +5 wide)

Sent it back for calibration. Came back worse (-15 tele, -5 wide).

Gave up and I'm sending it back for refund.

Anyone else had problems with this lens?

Rayflash adapter. 

Only realised after I bought it that I don't actually shoot portraits.

Got sucked in by media hype

I have the same problem with the 24l ii. Wildly inaccurate focussing and afma only corrected at one distance. I sent my copy back and got a new one. New copy nails focus all the time every time

For me it's color and skintone rendition.

It's the same feeling I get with my 24 1.4 ii and 24 70 ii.

Looks flimsy to me.  I have some rogue flash benders for my flashes (similar idea) and they are a pain to use. Why you would want this functionality in a hood is beyond me
