I can easily say 100-400L without thinking. Easily more than half of my lifetime shots on any camera are with that lens. Great optical quality, great handling and a flexible range.
If you asked me what my 2nd fave lens was, I couldn't answer that easily!
Used in the UK they are now about 2000 euros - about the same prince as a new 5DII, and you get a better camera if high iso is not an issue
Auto focus at f/8, non of the current lens line up is less than f/5.6 and as far as I remember non of the EF range ever has been. Even the ultra rare 1200mm manages f/5.6, the only lenses which will fit are the old mirror lenses, but they don't autofocus anyway. Given a camera costing this much what lenses are there which need this feature?
Lenses like the Sigma 50 - 500mm which are f/6.3 work because they tell the body that its f/5.6 it can't be the aperture which is an issue, simply that the software is told only to work at values higher than f/5.6 if it's too dark AF gives up even on very fast primes.
The whole dust issue in the 100-400mm is an urban legend.
wow that price is insane... seriously insane... I just go hire a 4x4 and can hire a driver for a small fee then its just me and my wife so there is no schedule and we can do what we want when we want. and it probably costs half that amount for 2 of us... just saying... can pick up a 1Dx with the savings
and that resulted in the perspective distortion.
The post edit T/S effects really look like they were don in post.Obviously, since what I did in this PP what is impossible with a T&S: selecting an arbitrary, poligonal area, just to demonstrate what is possible in PP. Actually I don't like this effect and I never use in my compositions, as, usually, I don't like to aim the attention on a subject other than playing with plain and simple DoF...
But you need to know ahead of time that you're going to need that, and frame loosely to allow for the cropping space needed for the corrections. Plus, you'll have soft corners, not as bad as a de-fish, but definitely soft.I'm not sure about soft corners... My main field is architecture and I made large use of perspective correction without suffering of soft corners. In the full resolution version of Steven Holl building I can't see any soft corner. Obviously we are comparing a prime lens (24 T&S) with a zoom lens (16-35) and this is not a fair competition!
What do you mean? Straighten the photo in post?Do you mean something like the two following examples? And in regard of cropping, it is exactly for that reason that I like the big megapixel range of my 1Ds and 5D. I like to be free to recompose my images by cropping them regardless of just falling lines...
Then please show me a fullsize, non-cropped image with the same effect and same corner quality. and also, adjust DOF like you can with tiltshift, for example full DOF on a landscape image at f8. Also with rotated plane of focus. It's only possible with tiltshift.
