Here's one from shashinki.com from Malaysia.

The cine dslr version,

My intention was to purchase the non-cine version.  But what makes my version interesting is:
1) red ring instead of the gold ring
2) Focusing ring (rubber grip) is the same as the non-cine version
3) There is no 'T' on my version to indicate the cine version
4) The numbers on the aperture is upright and not side ways like the cine version

Everything about this lens points to the normal Ultra Wide Angle lens for DSLR except for the red ring.

To my understanding, the biggest difference with the cine version is that it is declicked (aperture).  If yours has clearly defined aperture clicks, it is not the cine version.  More importantly - how are the photos?

This shot was taken with the 6D/Tamron 24-70 VC combo that I use a LOT while traveling.  Nice thing about the Tamron is that I shot this at 70mm and 1/13th of a second.  I don't fear doing that at all with a static subject.  It's VC is great!  This is a door that caught my eye leaving the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and heading out into the Arab Quarter.

Shot for local plays.

These are both nicely done.  Good mood lighting which suits the subject.

Thanks Carl.  Just recently, I've been asked to cover the concert/school graduation of my daughter (though my daughter is just one of the performers).  Here are some shots from it.  Low-light, moving kids, lots of shadows... Still no problem with my 6D.  It's a real high-ISO performer.


Nice color in these images.  The 6D works just fine for event work, particularly when paired with a faster focusing lens.

Abstract / Re: Beautiful bokeh! Let me see yours!
« on: December 04, 2013, 07:28:59 PM »
Surprisingly good bokeh for 70-200 f4L is on the 6D, wide open at f4. Can't wait to try out my new 135L for portraits!



The 70-200 is a fabulous lens for the price.  F/4 at 200mm and 6 feet from the subject is .79 inches.  That is a pretty small depth of field, and so bokeh is pretty nice.

People sometimes don't realize how small depth of field becomes with a telephoto even though the aperture doesn't seem all that large.  The depth of field is actually LARGER at that distance with the 85mm f/1.2L wide open.

The amount of detail this lens renders is stunning:


Lots of detail, but I wanted to see a larger version!

Sorry - this one has commercial value, so I don't give away the big ones.

I'm the same way with most of mine.

Don't blame you.  I've managed to make photography somewhat profitable in a day where photography has been cheapened, but it is a fight.

Here's another travel shot - this is the "Sea of Galilee" in Israel.  This was a bracketed shot, and the M does just fine with that.

For what I want to accomplish with it, the original M is just fine.  What I need is more lens options, particularly a compact telephoto.  I tend to use the M as a backup and a compact option while traveling when I don't want to take out the "big dog".  A compact telephoto would help me a lot, as I tend to bring my 70-300L along while traveling but only use it for a small percentage of my shots (I typically carry a 24-70 f/2.8 that sees all the action).

The carousel shot is fabulous.  Nice work!



Another shot from Israel.  This one is from Akko (Acre) looking over the old wall into the Med.

Whenever I leave my 5D MK III + Tamron 24-70 VC with VC turned on (even though the camera power is turned off), the battery drains very within a couple of days ... does anyone else face this issue?

I had a similar issue.  Call Tamron, send it in, and they will fix it quickly.  It needs an updated circuit board.
Thanks for the response, I was really hoping for your reply, as you are probably the biggest evangelist for Tamron 24-70 in CR (I say that with great respect for the excellent results you achieve with that lens)  ... unfortunately, here in Qatar, we don't have any Tamron service center (for that matter any other service center that can fix lenses) ... also, I bought the Tamron 24-70 VC from Japan (through my boss), so if I want it fixed, I'll have to send it to Japan ... but I don't have time now, as I'm about to go on vacation for 15 days (to Australia) ... so far I have not faced any problems with the lens or its image quality ... just this annoying battery drain issue if I forget to leave the VC on while not in use (so most of the time I turn off VC, but when the camera is in use, it does not seem to affect the battery life), so I'm assuming it won't turn into a bigger issue if I never get the circuit board updated - what do you think?

I've never heard of it causing any other issue than the battery drain.  It doesn't affect lens function, but it will cause a slow but continual drain on the battery like you've experienced.  Its too bad you are disconnected from service like that.
