Marketplace viability is a reasonable topic of conversation.... especially when we are their target demographic... if we have no interest, they are doing something wrong.

Lenses / Re: 70-200 f/2.8L IS II underwhelming
« on: June 06, 2014, 12:42:10 PM »
I'm going to ignore the sigma issue for right now.

I have the 100L and the 70-200... and the macro lens is so incredibly sharp... it is exactly what I would hope for from a macro lens... the 70-200 by comparison is remarkably sharp for a zoom lens.  It isn't fair to compare the two... especially at minimum focusing distance.

Where the 70-200 shines is in low light with great image stabilization and auto focus motor...

The images are great... but they may not blow your mind at 100%.

As for the sigma.. who wants to shoot at f6?  It's fine... but that's not the reason you get the 70-200.

ok, so every DSLR from now on will be able to upload its images to Irista via WiFi.

Probably.... and when they reach 10 gb they will get a ton of emails to upgrade.

I was editing a friend's image and it was fine, but at 100%, it wasn't sharp.  It is nice to know what there is a reason why I'm passing all much more for my lenses.

I feel that cps members with a crap ton of points should get this free...

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Yongnuo YN-E3-RT Officially Released
« on: June 06, 2014, 12:15:11 AM »
As of today, I have 2 600ex rt's... so I'm debating on whether I'm going to get a another to do RT or the St-e3-rt... the YN-E3-RT isn't really on my radar screen... mostly because of this thread. 

Though, it is a good problem to have. Which to get... which to get.

Both

I don't think I could go with three @ the same time.  It's like women in bed... eventually one would feel left out...

I could have used a longer lens... I was using a 1.4x telconvertor (canon) mkii on my 70-200mm f/2.8 mkii... and... it could have been better... but I always think that.

I bought the 70-200f4L usm... I couldn't use it indoors... and it was basically going to replace all of my other lenses... at least that was the plan.  I sent it back after less than a week... and I got some extra cash and got the 24-105... which was better...but I wouldn't say I feel in love with it.

Lenses / Re: 24-105 vs 24-70 2.8 ii
« on: June 03, 2014, 08:19:42 AM »
Depends on the kind of photography

if you need the 2.8 aperture i'm afraid the 24-70 II is the only way to go
if you don't, the 24-70 II is useless because the 24-105 at f/5 5.6 is sharp from edge to edge, has IS and its way way cheaper.

It would be interesting though to wait for Sigma's 24-70 2.8 OS,
I bet it gonna be sharper from edge to edge from Tamron 24-70 VC and that might push canon to drop the price on the 24-70 II
unless you need a lens right now.

So the sigma isn't going to be f2?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 6D or 5DM3 need your help guys
« on: June 02, 2014, 05:11:32 PM »
thanks again guys for all your kind here :)

now it's settle for me :

Camera 6D 110%

lens :

1) EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM or EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM

2) EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM

3) EF 35mm f/2


guys if i get the 24-105 from kit deal , it is okay to get 24-70 2.8II or no need for it ? i saw some images made from 6D and 24-70 lens and they are amazing / if i don't get the 24-105 from kit deal which one i should take ? or take both

because this camera only take one SD card and i shoot RAW which SD is good ,also waiting for tripod info :p

I will take 24-70 II over 24105 any day. If you can add 70-200mm f2.8 is ii then that is a killer combo.

Many-many CR members ended up putting their 24-105 on ebay or CL after using 24-70 II. There is no point having both of these lenses in the bag.

I've bought 4 24-105s and I've sold three.  But I'm weird.  If someone is willing to pay me more than I can buy another for... you have a deal. 

Having said that.. there was minimal variation among the three I have used... so that's a plus.

I have vacation photos I need to process... I think I'm going to go back to shooting in raw& jpg.  That way the mediocre photos get their due as well.

We all make do with what we have.... but if we have a vision and the gear doesn't allow us to achieve that vision... Then there is a significant difference in gear.  If we are shooting randomly without concern for depth of field... well there are many who do... but they don't see what they want to shoot and make it happen...
