Video lens mostly...  Lets hope they don't get rid of the nifty-fifty, the price is one of it's best attributes!

I won't get this lens, but anything that ups the competition and forces Canon to up their game (or at least speed up their release schedule) is good! :)

Sold my 17-55 just in time it would appear (assuming DxO aren't to far off the mark).

What is the best lens to choose for crazy, out-of-this-world, over-the-top, almost obstructive flare! :)

I hear the FL 55 1.2 gets some nice flare?

I know i could fake it in PS, but i like to get the best i can in in camera...  any opinions/advice?

Which means... No more pancakes for you!

I think there is a market, the success of the odd focal lengthl 40mm STM...  why not a 20ishMM lens? Voigtlander has one...

It is indeed an interesting lens, and certainly one I would look into if i had a need.

Very interesting discussion and great photos here, guys. I've been procrastinating over this lens for quite a while now. Cannot decide for a 24-70/II as I'd definitely miss larger apertures and I've got other primes. If it was for sure that newer batches are clear from this erratic focusing behavior - and especially on 5D3 -  it's time to give it a go.   

Same boat...  hmmmm...  really missed this weekend shooting in a low light temple.... :(

70-200 @ f/8, against a white wall with soft light from both sides of the subject....

considering picking this up next week. some good info here, thanks guys!

Apebrains : you do realise your "conclusion" was nearly the same size as your discussion right? ;) thanks for the obvious effort, appreciate it!

What do we think the chances are that:

a) there might be a sigma 24mm Art coming soon
b) it will be better IQ than the canon L II?

I'm not asking about price because it would obviously be cheaper... :P

You could consider a used 7D or 1D4 (the former has more reach but the latter will retain resell value better), but they will not be a match for your 5D3's low light performance.

+1.... pick up a used 7D then resale... probably won't lose much on it and the controls are similar to the 5d MKIII.

For day hiking? How about a 5DIII with 24-105L f4 IS.

+1...  what some of you deem a dayhiking kit i would equate more with a special ops training march!  :o

Tokina 300mm 2.8 is meant to be a hidden gem, that and the Tokina 17mm f/3.5 AF. I don't own either of these lenses, but i would like to! :)

Doubt it.  :o would be a bit of an oxymoron to me...  not saying that it might not happen though! :)

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS M Stock & Shipping Update
« on: July 18, 2013, 01:42:59 AM »
Lets face it, no matter how good the camera is it was not priced competitively with the competition. Well, not until the recent "fire sale" deals anyway. It sounds like they are clearing stock for the M2, something which might justify the price tag that canon wants pinned to it. It is not dead, but I think they realise the M did not match people expectations and are probably moving the line along quicker than anticipated in order to grab a slice of the mirrorless pie!

Just my thoughts...  :) ;D
